Yes call HP they can look up by serialnumber to see if machine is in warranty period. Sounds like a board problem with wireless board. Does it work direct with a wire to computer ? Does your wireless in the computer work? Check control panel - system - device manager and see if there are any yellow marked items. If there is then the problem is in the computer...

Cannot get the wireless connection to work on the printer. The USB cable is connected to the back of the PCU. I've installed and uninstalled twice and nothing. It did work when I first got it and...


Here are some guidelines to identify and fix your wireless communication issue:
  • What is the status of the Wi-Fi light on the printer? Green light means that it's connected to a wireless network while Orange light means it's not connected to a network.
  • Try to print the printer's wireless network settings to determine if it's connected to your own wireless network. On the printer operator panel, touch the Setup button > Network Setup > Print Setup Page. Your printer will then print the its wireless network information page. Ensure that the printer is connected to your network by checking the Network Card Status, Wireless SSID, Quality or Trouble Code.
  • If printer is not connected to your network, you may need to reset your printer's wireless network settings. On the printer operator panel, press Setup button > Network Setup > Reset Network Settings. The Wi-Fi light on the printer will momentarily turn off then back on to solid orange. You can then run the Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer to reconfigure the printer to connect to your wireless network. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Printer Home application > go to Settings tab > Wireless Setup Utility. Please follow the instructions on your computer screen.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a laptop which is hooked up to a wireless router (Belkin) and NOBODY can get my wireless kodak printer to work on this system including the tech who came out from the cable co.


How is this printer connected to your PC? If it's connected wirelessly, I would suggest connecting it through a wired connection (if is has Ethernet capability) and trying to install it again. Even if you need to relocate it near your router it may very well fix your problem. Most wireless printers have annoyingly poor wireless cards in them, resulting in problems. you would then install it as a network printer and you can access it from any PC's in range of the router.
If this not have an ethernet port, then I would try connecting it directly to a desktop PC (via USB), and you could share it with other network users. In my experience this works very reliably, with only one caveat: for print jobs to go through the connected computer has to be on.

Might be a problem with the router, or router location. Check the signal strength from the printer.
If your signal only has 1 or 2 bars, it could lose its connection very easily.

You should be able to move your modem and router, anywhere in the house, and it will not erase settings. Just have to have a strong cable signal going to the modem.

If the signal strength is not the problem, your router could be getting hot and cutting out. Or getting old and going bad. Try also resetting the router and reconfiguring it.

You should call Linksys tech support now. The router needs to be configured manually. The tech that you hired maybe not familiar on how to configure the Linksys router.

Wireless printing does not work


For an effective wireless connection, the printer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of a configured wireless router. This way, every pc(mostly laptops with wireless capability) can print to the printer. You will need a wireless adapter for desktop pcs to access any resource made available wirelessly ok. Good luck

Printing through wireless


hi,

if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..
