Go through the on board print menus and print them out. If you get the menu, then you know the printer is working.

Next, disconnect the printer from the PC and print out test pages from within the menu system. This should exercise both the color and mono print cycles.

Reconnect the printer to the PC, open the driver and print a test page.

If all of the above yield printed pages then it is time to look at the application you are using.

Try printing something from the "utilities" menu. If you can print from any of the menus directly on the machine, then the issue is related to connectivity with your computer. If not, then it may be best to try a new toner cartridge.

    Why is paper blank


    Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


    If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

    1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
    2. Go to Programs.
    3. Go to Lexmark 3600 Series folder.
    4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

    From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.


    After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

    Do my pages print out blank


    It could be that your cartridge nozzles need some cleaning. Long period of non-usage can lead to drying of ink and clogging in the cartridge nozzles. To clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X1200 Series folder > select Lexmark Solution Center. From the maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Then try to print your document again to verify that the cartridges are functioning now.

    I have two computers on my network, an iMac and a PC running Windoew 7. I recently purchased the Lexmark Pro901 and installed it on the network. It(the Lexmark Pro901) seems to connect fine to the network...


    It could be a software issue. Try to uninstall the existing Lexmark Pro901 driver from your desktop pc by going to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark -> Pro900 Series -> Uninstall Lexmark Pro900 Series. Reboot pc when prompted.
    Now, check your Windows 7 if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit by going to the Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the System Type.
    To reinstall, download the Lexmark Pro900 Series driver using the links below: - Lexmark Pro901 driver for Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark Pro901 driver for Windows 7 64-bit
    Download, execute the file and follow the instructions on the software.
    I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks.

    Page is blank after 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
