What computer operating system are you using? If the manual claims compatibilty, it may just require a reboot. You may also wish to go online and download the latest drivers. Even the disc that accompanies the printers are often out-of-date. Here's the link:

The compuer is not connected


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 (if USB connected)> 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 (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


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

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer 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, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

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

I installed Windows 7 and now I have no connection to the computer. The printer is connected to the router but won't communicate with the HP G60t-200.

When your pc turns on, check if your operating system is running on 32-bit or 64-bit. Go to Start > right-click on Computer > click on Properties. Take note of the System Type.

Print mode does not work pages come out blank


It could be the cartridges in the printer. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert both cartridges. Reconnect the printer into your computer. Try to print again.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer.
  1. Click Start > Programs or All Programs > Lexmark Z2400 Series
  2. Click Maintenance > Clean Cartridges.
  3. Click Print.
  4. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.
  5. If print quality has not improved, then wipe the cartridge nozzles using a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from possible dirt and clogs.
You can also reinstall the printer driver on your computer to repair any corrupted files necessary for printer communication and processes.

Lexmark z2400 will not print, the comuter says document is pending. All connections are correct. Do I have to uninstall the printer, and reinstall with the CD? I rebooted the printer, and nothing. It is...


I am assuming you have it connected via USB to your computer. If you have an additional USB port on your computer then try powering off the printer, attach the USB connection to a new USB port, go to the Control Panel (Start, Settings Control Panel), go to Administrative Tools, go to Services, scroll down to Printer Spool, stop the service, start the service, and power on printer. Try to print a test page. If it fails, power off the printer and delete the print driver. Reinstall the driver using the CD.
