Installing printer. Trying to install drivers for Lexmark X2500 printer. It's asking for an IP address


According to the specs, this printer connects to the computer using an USB cable.
The only reason it could be asking for an IP address if it is connected to a network card or attached to a print server.
OR the wrong print driver is installed.

You can download the Lexmark printer drivers from theirsupport WEB site. Please click on this link and select your model printer todownload :-http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=home&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US&segment=DOWNLOAD

My epson stylus tx 121 doesn't print..... it says ur printer s not ready... but everything s ryt at my end.... i need some solutions


First how are you connecting to the printer? Is it a direct USB connectionor are you using a USB hub or print server (sometimes part of a router)? If a USB hub is in use, is it a USB powered hub or a self-powered hub (AC adapter)? (Make sure that the printer has power and is turned on. Also make sure that you have printed and scanned a calibration )

If you are not using a direct connection, try a direct USB connection. Use a different USB cable and try different ports (some ports have lower power throughput than others). Make sure that you have the correct driver for your OS. (The full software is useful for other issues.) See http://www.epson.com.ph/epson_philippines/printers_and_all_in_ones/inkjet/product.page?product_name=Epson_Stylus_TX121 for the drivers.

Try uninstalling the current printer driver and then disconnect your data cable (USB). For Windows, press Start and open the Devices and Hardware control panel (Printers and Faxes in XP) from the right hand column. Right click on the printer and select Uninstall (or left click and choose Uninstall from the Menu bar). Reboot the computer and install the Epson printer driver before reconnecting the USB cable. (Otherwise you can get the OS driver that may not work as well.) Remove your data cable from both the computer and the printer and turn off both devices. Unplug the power cord from the printer and the wall outlet. Wait a few minutes before reconnecting the power. (This will reset most printers if there is an error in the printer itself.)

If you are using a print server and the direct connection worked, check the installation information for using the print server. Not all printers are compatible with certain print server drivers and you can have a conflict.

If a direct connection to any of your computer's USB ports does not work, check if other USB devices work. If not, try updating or uninstalling your USB controller (in the Device Manager for Windows - Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager, scroll down to the Univeral Serial Bus controllers). Then reboot your machine and see if the correct driver installs. Alternatively, check your computer manufacturer and see if there is an update for your USB driver.)

If the problems persist, you may have a bad USB port on the printer. Please add a comment with the type of connection between the computer and the printer.

I hope this helps.

The printer won't print any print jobs sent to it. When checking it shows that it is off-Line and I have tryed retyping my network password into it with no results. I end up going back into it and...


Hi

1. This can happen if the printer is set to "USE PRINTER OFFLINE" under printer menu.
(Goto Printer & faxes+double click your printer+check in the printer menu)

2. The usb cable may be bad and needs to be replaced.

3. Try to use other USB port on your computer. (This will install another printer driver but will work)

4. Your USB port on your printer may be bad (This requires your Printer's formatter replacement)

Try step 1, 2 & 3 first to rule out the problem.

Power is connected and printer is on; printer cables to pc is connected however this message keeps coming up to check them....and the print wont print....what can I do?


It could be a driver problem where the computer system won't able to detect the hardware completely. Try installing the driver of your printer and try using other ports if it is a USB one.

I have an hp psc 1215 all in one printer which will not print documents from my pc, but can print using when i want to photocopy a document. it is shown as ready so what am i doing wrong? help please


Could be a driver, could be a usb port but to even test this theory try reinatalling the print driver and change the plug to another usb port if this still does not shore this up you have a bad pcm module inside that needs to be replaced.

thanks and please leave postive feedback for your free answer today.

You need a piece of software to create a Virtual com port, make sure you have the comms set correctly 9600, n, 8, 1 and print to that port, you will find it clearly marked in Device Manager. You can get a parallel to USB cable then you can use your driver set to LPT1

Connecting USB cannon mp610 printer to computer


You need USB A-B cable and use the USB jack lying on the back-right corner of the printer (not the front one - that is for connecting cameras).

BAD, BLURY, SMEARED, PRINTING


This is from the lexmark website
"Attention Windows Vista Users
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 - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected."
