When trying to print message comes up 'incorrect port detection' what does this mean?


It could be that the port for the printer in the Control Panel is not configured correctly. You may refer to this article on No Communications Error When Trying to Print or Scan. If that doesn't help, I would suggest you uninstall the Lexmark software.
Download the updated Lexmark X2350 driver (Windows only) from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/i4Axqw. NOTE: Use Vista driver in Windows 7.

My lexmark 4300 series says incorrect port detected


Hello!

Yes the problem is with your printer port setting, to view or to correct the printer port setting,
- go to CONTROL PANEL
- click or open Printer or Faxes
- right click your Lexmark printer and click properties
- a menu will appear, choose or click PORT tab
- at the Port tab listing, choose USB port and click ok after choosing the right port.

then you should be able to print properly after the right configuration.

Hope I was able to help.

Incorrect Port Detected


According to Features and Specs on Lexmarks website, this is a All in One? i.e Fax, Printer, Scan & Copy? also it's a Network type?

If so have you chosen the correct settings via the Printers Dispay and Control Panel? ...... I assume you have and everythinh in Device manager looks good, i.e no Yellow and or Red Icons over anything listed there, especially USB....correct?

If your Vista is the 32 Bit then the driver file should be: cjb5000enOSS.exe (87.7MB)
If Windows Vista x63 then it will be: cjq5000enOSS.exe (132.76MB)

Hope the above helped,

cheers,

Incorrect port detected 926


Try reinstalling the drivers for your printer. You should have a disk that came with the printer. If you don't then you will have to search the Dell website for the drivers. Once you have found them, reinstall them and see how that works out.
Let me know wether this helped or not.

I'm assuming you're using Windows XP. If not, these directions may differ a little.

  1. Click Start > Printers and Faxes.
  2. Right-click on Lexmark X75, and then click on Properties.
  3. Click on the Ports tab.
  4. Find Lexmark X75 under the Printers column (or look for which item under the Port column is checked).
  5. Chances are it somehow got changed to COM or LPT. Find any available USB port and check it. Click Apply.
  6. Try to print. If it doesn't work now, you'll probably get a different error, something like "Cannot Communicate". If that happens, go back to theProperties window and try checking any other USB ports you see there. If there aren't any more to try, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the drivers to get it working.
Good luck!
