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.

Unable read cups raster data os lexmark


It's a Driver issue. You need to reset the printing system by deleting the current printer and re-adding it, like this:

  1. Click the Apple menu, and then click System Preferences .
  2. Select Print & Scan.
  3. Right-click (or Ctrl + click) your product in the Printers list in the left panel, and then click Reset printing system .
  4. Click OK to confirm the reset.
  5. Type your user Name and Password .
  6. Click OK . The printing system resets.
  7. Next go to the Library\Printers folder and move the Lexmark folder to the trash.
  8. Under Print & Scan, click the plus sign and re-add the printer.
  9. The drivers should be reinstalled automatically.

I get a message that my HP 5500 is not connected to my new iMac but the printer says it is connected. How to solve?


The printer says that it is connected correctly to the router because the router is aware of it and has assigned to it an IP address on the network.
The computer on the other hand does not know that there is a printer. Not finding one (or not knowing where to look for it) the computer reports that the printer is offline.
You must install the printer drivers on the computer.

Does Dell have a printer driver for iMac?


Hi Lorie, unfortunately Apple is correct. It's up to Dell to provide the drivers and I think it's highly unlikely that they will.It would appear that many Dell printers are actiually Lexmark printers in disguise so perhaps you could try those drivers to see if any will work.

My printer X5250 is working perfect as


I just wonder if you are some problem with the fonts being transferred to the printer.You could try changing the font you are using to one of the system fonts i.e. Times or Helvetica. Also go to the applications folder open up the app called font book and see if there is any conflict of the fonts you are trying to print. see http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/5200/macxug/en/PrintsDifferentFonts.html

I have a new iMac all in one dual core 3.06GHz 4GB RAM..500GB HD memory....and when I shut down it will not close but keeps saying to force quit my Lexmark printer so it can shut down all the way? Why...


Your printers' app is keeping your Imac from shutting down. You have to quit the printers' app first then shutdown. Some outside vendors' apps (as Lexmark - has a function that prevents you from shutting down computer in case you have stuff printing) You can change that in your Lexmark preferences. And no it won't hurt the IMac, it's just a hassle until you change the printers' preferences.

Cant print using Dell A920 printer on my imac. printer set up shows driver is correct I think and the printer name is correct.


So clearly the Macintosh sees and recognizes the printer. WIll it let you queue a document to the printer? After you do, you will see an extra icon on the Dock that represents the printer queue. Open it up and see what is happening to the printer job. If it disappears, it was sent to the printer and the Mac thinks it was printer successfully; if it isn't printed then you have either a bad printer or a bad printer driver. If it stays in the queue and goes to "hold" state, look in the log to see what the error was -- the Mac is unable to negotiate with the printer to get your file printed.

Printer will not add to my computer


Ok, since you state that you have an older iMac, I'm going to presume that it is not an Intel-Mac and that your OS X version is Linux based. So with that information known, you will just have to search for the printer (Lexmark 3400) drivers for the version of OS X you are currently running. Since the older Mac's use CUPS instead of drivers that PC's use. Basically instead of searching in Google for a Lexmark 3400 print drivers for an iMac, you would need to instead search Google for CUPS Lexmark 3400 OS X. Then you would get a link like this:

http://fixunix.com/ubuntu/505065-lexmark-printer-ubuntu.html

And if you follow that link you would get to download the needed file(s). And usually the installation instruction is there on the same site. It is a bit confusing to figure it all out but if you get lost there come back and post it here and someone will help. And if i happen to come across you i will be glad to help with the confusing manual installation of the CUPS into your iMac.

Printer fails to print - error code -50


From System Preferences / Printers, delete the printer completely.
If you have the driver installer for the driver you are using, re-launch it and choose the "uninstall" option. If not, you will have to rip out a lot of code by hand -- you will have to search HP's website for the page on how to manually remove traces of old Mac HP drivers.
Download the latest driver for your printer from the HP website. Install if carefully.
After rebooting, go to System Preferences / Printers and re-define the printer. Make sure you use the HP driver, not any of the generic drivers.
This ought to clear the problem.

Thanks for the additional information. This will help in troubleshooting this.

That is most likely why it isn't working. It is possible the driver disk you have simply doesn't have the 10.3.5 driver on it.

You can download the OS X drivers here:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?lxkprod=Lexmark+X1140


Just choose "OS X" from the operating system options.

If further assistance is needed, please ask.
