How do I speed up the rate on my xp-412 in copy mode?


The printer "program" in your computer should let you go to "Properties" or some other title and see if the "PRINT MODE" is set to the rate you want, prior to printing the document.

Lexmark z45 not working with windows xp. i installed a lexmark z45 on my laptop that has windows xp and it will not print


Check the printer status:

1 Click Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Printers and Faxes.
2 From the Printers folder, double-click the Lexmark Z45 printer icon.
3 From the Printer menu, make sure:
– Default Printer is selected.
– Pause Printing is not selected.

Check the printer port:

1 Click Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Printers and Faxes.
2 Click the Ports tab.
3 From the list of ports, select the USB printer port. If the USB port is not listed, uninstall and then reinstall the printer software.
4 Click Apply.
5 Click OK.

Make sure you have not installed multiple copies of the printer software:

Windows XP: From the Start menu, click Control Panel Printers and Other Hardware > Printers and Faxes.
In the Printers folder, make sure there is only one Lexmark Z45 printer icon. If you have installed multiple copies of the printer software, uninstall each copy. Then restart the computer and reinstall the printer software.
If the printer port is incorrect or you have installed multiple copies of the printer software, uninstall and then reinstall the printer software:

1 From the Start menu, click Programs or All Programs Lexmark Z45 Uninstall.
2 Follow the instructions on your screen to uninstall the printer software.
3 Restart your computer.
4 Reinstall the printer software

Printer prints more copies than indicated. Driver reinstalled multiple times.


I don't know if this will help but I have had similar problems. I would notice that one or two particular programs would print more than one copy and others were just fine. Try checking the preferences on the actual programs. Some programs retain their last qty request and don't change unless you change it. For instance, you request a program to give you two copies of a particular document and everything works fine. Then a day later you are in the same program and need only one copy of a document and you get two instead. This is because there is something set in the program or the preferences of your printing device that causes it to retain the last requested quantity for printing. Next time you print check the print dialog box and see how many copies it is showing will be printed. Hope this helps.

Printer 4270 prints only a partial page and then stops


Thanks for the help. I followed your recommendation of uninstalling the Lexmark program and reinstalling it. Note that I had done this previously and still had the problem. However, following your advice, the third time must have been a charm. The problem has been solved.

Half page printing


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Attempts to print on HP Deskjet F4280 shut down my programs


Sounds like the drivers are not installing properly. Are you installing through the CD or downloading the drivers from the HP website. Since a lot of the new drivers are no longer supporting XP you will need to download a scrubber utility and delete all of the pre installed drivers and attempt to reinstall through a manual installation of the drivers.

Pixma IP3000 will not print


try to do this set of instruction & solution:

  1. Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
  2. Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP. Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or with the software in your computer.
  3. Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
  4. Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad, type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you originally tried to print from.
  5. Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
  6. Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
  7. When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the driver.
