Which OS do you have 10.4 or 10.5?

To add printers in 10.5 go to your system preferences and you will see a Printer & Fax icon. This is where you add printers.

In 10.4 go to your applications folder and then into your Utilities folder. There is Printer Utility application where you can add printers from there.

Aswell as my daughter I've installed the drivers (Vista and 7) of the Lexmark x4550 wireless, but she can only print when my laptop is 'on'. How can she print without the use of my laptop.


Hello,
All you need to do is to remove the printer currently added on your daughter's laptop(most likely it is the printer installed on your laptop)and then add the lexmark printer manually on your daughters laptop. Make sure when you do this your laptop is turned off. If this won't work, that means that the laptop of your daughter does not detect the wireless printer.
hope this helps...

Lexmark x4550 scan problem


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.



You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/g8G3VP. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.


If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a computer with the Vista software and I'm having problems connecting a printer. The computer is a Gateway and the printer is Lexmark X4550.


The reason you are having problems is because you need to install the driver for the printer. The driver is the software that allows the operating system and the printer to communicate.

For your specfic printer , you can download the driver here: http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/LEXMARK/Lexmark-X4550-Printer-Driver-10111.shtml

Simply download it and run the setup , it will install the printer for you and you should be able to print!

Can't print wireless anymore - Lexmark X4550


Is the printer a wireless, network, or connected to another computer wired.

Also, be sure that your "workgroup" is still named the same on all computers.
