What OS do you have?? If Vista be sure you have Vista Driver. Have you tried going into the printer section and try adding a printer and send it to the printer drivers section when it asked for them. Also see if the Printer Spooler Service is turned on in Services section under the Administrative tools section. You could also have spyware blocking the printer or a program such as spybot S&D or a firewall blocking it. Check these while you looking if you haven't already. Good luck, let me know if I was of some help. Thanks Jimmyriggs

solution : 1. Uninstall driver printer and remove Printer USB cable from computer. After uninstall finish, restart printer. 2. Reinstall driver printer (don't connect printer USB cable to computer). Wait forthe install process,untilmessage "connecta printer USB cabletocomputer". After message appear, connect printer USB cable to computer. 3. Wait process install finish and try to print.
Before doing this process ensure that you should have original driver CD with you.. Un plug the USB cable, un install the drivers, restart the system run the CD when it request to connect the printer connect the printer, run the next process till end.. then check.. Best of luck..
Simple. Go to the Lexmark web site and download the drivers for your operating system there. They have drivers for almost every model they ever made. if not, search a web site called Driverguide.com
The normal routine for installation is: Unplug the printer before you boot up your PC. Download and install the drivers. Then you connect the printer. [It may even prompt you to do so during the process] This will only work with a USB connection. If you use a parallel cable you will have to shut down, connect cable and reboot. The computer should do a "New Hardware Found" routine and install the drivers at that point. Working in Microsoft Windows of course. If you use Linux or Mac, you will need more information that I don't have. Good luck!
I had trouble installing this from the installer on the desktop. It would quit the process before being done.
I solved this by coping to an available hard drive the installer, and when running the installer from another hard drive it installed fine.
I don't know why it is, but, so many of the printer problems I answer have to do with original install cd being corrupted(it may have to with mass production process) anyway, you can try this:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name).Un-intall printer and printer software completely.Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu.Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop.Power down your computer.Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc.Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files.Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done
