Hi,
You CAN you your X4270 with your mac, its just a bit of work.
You may need to download the gutenprint/gimp drivers and install them. Which you can find at this link: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gimp-print/gutenprint-5.2.4-rc1.dmg?use_mirror=superb-west

Once these are installed, do the following:
Before attempting this, ensure that your X4270 is plugged into your Mac and powered on.
1: Open "System Preferences" under the Apple menu in the upper left corner.
2: Click on "Print & Fax"
3: Click the "+" to add a printer
4: "Lexmark 4200 Series" should show up under the default tad of add printer, select it by single clicking.
5: If you wish you can change the name and give a location below
6: Where it says "Print using:", select: "Select a driver to use" This will bring up a list of printers
7: Search or scroll until you find "Lexmark Z43-CUPS+GutenPrint", select this by single clicking.
8: Press the "Add" button at the bottom and you should be done, if may ask you to step through a few more things, but it will be trivial.

Please note that this is not a perfect solution. I seem to have to print one page at a time, which is a pain, but at least I didn't have to buy a new printer. This could be a problem with my printer only, or it might just be a setting that I haven't found yet, so look around see if you can find it.

Also, you will not be able to use the scanner on your mac as far as I can tell, and I don't remember if the copy/fax works.

Good luck!

Sorry, but I think you may be out of luck. The MFC that you have purchased is not on the Lexmark compatability list for Mac OS. List found here:

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_666691854_1177082303_en,00.html

You may have to purchase another MFC if you want to use it with your MacBook laptop. If this is the case, please check the Systems Requirements on the brochure/side of the box before purchasing.

Good luck.

It would be best to install the printer driver first before plugging the printer into your Windows Vista computer. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the printer driver for your Lexmark X4270 printer on your computer. Use the links below. Select the correct version for your operating system.
- Lexmark X4270 Printer Driver for Vista 32-bit - Lexmark X4270 Printer Driver for Vista 64-bit
Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen.

I'm using a Lexmark X4270 And I apparently downloaded a driver for a Lexmark X4200. As of now I can't print anything. Do I need to download a driver for the Lexmark X4270 for my printer to work?


Hi!
If you downloaded the driver for the x4200 series then that is alright. But to make sure redownload the driver and reinstall it. After that unplug the USB connector to your computer and then restart the computer. Wait until you have gone into windows and logged in before plugging back the usb connector. Wait for windows to acknowledge the connection by showing an installing device message or by a series of tones. Check on your printer devices if your printer is online. Try printing a test page. If you are still getting a problem make sure to jot down the error message you are getting and get back to us here at fixya.

Hi there, i have purchased a new MacBook laptop and notice that it does not have a printer driver for for my Lexmark X4270. I have also gone to the Lexmark Web Site and there is also no driver for mac on...


Hello. Unfortunately, the printer is not compatible with Macintosh OS. There are no Lexmark X4270 printer drivers for Macintosh operating system. The printer only works with Microsoft Windows operating system. This may be unacceptable but if you're interested, Lexmark offer customers, who are in a situation like this, a 20% discount on new models in the market. You can contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275). I'm sorry but I hope I can assist you more on this.

Computer wont communicate with printer


If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
Install the driver on your PC.
Important Notice -
Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
go to Lexmark website using this link: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi enter your product number (X4270) and you will find your driver for Vista. Good luck.
