First, make sure the printer is correctly plugged into the power outlet and connected to the computer in question. If it is and you can't see it in Windows, that means you are missing the driver of your printer.

If you still have the documentation that came with your printer, there should be a CD with it that will install the driver for you. Put in the CD tray, and the installer should start automatically. If it doesn't, click on the start button on the lower left of your screen, then click on "Computer". You should see either a CD logo or a Lexmark logo. Double click on it. That will start the installer. Then, you will probably have to follow a couple of easy steps (clicking on OK or something like that), and the driver will be installed. You will then have to restart the computer for the changes to take effect.

If you can't find the installation CD, try the following. Go to: On the bottom of the page, select your Windows version (for Windows 7, select Windows Vista). A link should appear at the bottom of the page saying: "Driver for ...". Click on it. Then click on download. Once the program has finished downloading, simply double-click on it and the installation should start. Once it is finished, restart your computer and the printer should work.

How do I clean the rollers? The paper is not feeding properly and I have to think it's due to dirt on the rollers.

Q-tip swabs and high octane 90% or better rubbing alcohol...lower grade works too but let it dry.

I need a driver for the Lexmark z816 that works

The manufacturer's web-page:


> Recently released printers include Microsoft Windows 7 drivers on the
> Software and Documentation CD provided in the box with the printer.

So, find an obliging computer-store that sells the printer, and pay them to make a copy of that CD.

The web-page also states:

> Many printer models have drivers included with the Windows
> Operating System or available through Windows Update

So, run "Windows Update", with the printer attached & powered-on, and look in the "Optional Hardware" category.

Or, choose "reinstall driver", and allow Windows to "access Internet to search for updated drivers".

Lexmark Z816

it is most proberly that the cartridges are damaged now due to the refilling because certain cartridges can't be refilled and some can bt are limited to the amount of times that you can fill them so you might have to go out and buy new cartriges but try this 1st. remove the cartridges and use alcohol or spirits on a soft cloth and wipe the pins on the head of the printer and also on the cartridge were the pins would make contact to the cartridge these should be copper in colour.
