Need lexmark x73 power cord


here on ebay you can find cheap priced cords for your make and model.
http://popular.ebay.com/computers-networking/lexmark-x73/lexmark-x73-printer.htm

if it is drivers you need for windows 7
Lexmark does not have Windows 7 drivers for the X73, the newest ones are for XP:
http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=EN&page=product&userlocale=EN_US&productCode=LEXMARK_X73&focusedTab=DOWNLOADS#1

Lexmark does not include it as being compatible with Windows 7:

You can try:

If the manufacturers website does not have Windows 7 drivers, try using Windows Update to install printer drivers:

2. In the search box, type troubleshooter
3. Then click Troubleshooting

I bought a new computer with Windows Vista. I have a Lexmark x73 printer that was used with my old computer with Windows XP. I bought a USB port and my printer still doesn't work. I need help with this.


Not finding a Vista driver to be available from Lexmark x73. They only show the XP driver. You can get this driver free here: http://download.cnet.com/Lexmark-X73/3000-2116_4-22576.html?tag=mncol

One, try installing printer without the XP driver. Lexmark may have provided a quailifying driver with Vista hardware setup wizard. If it does not work or wizard cannot locate a driver, try the XP driver.

Beyond this, you may have to talk to tech support at Lexmark or repost here for another expert.

Lexmark x73 - prints blank pages


This is a possibility however I can't be positive unless I were there to check it myself... where the printer hasn't been used in years it is highly possible that the ink in the cartridges has dried up. This is not uncommon.

It's also possible that the outlet for the ink on the cartridge itself is blocked with dried ink. You could place the ink cartridge itself in a saucer of nail polish remover (covering the electronic looking portion of the ink cartridge. Leave it there for 30 minutes. Blot dry it with a cloth and replace it into your printer. Try to print once again.

If this doesn't work, you most likely need new ink cartridges. Considering the cost of the ink cartridges for your printer, you are better off buying a new printer in which new ink cartridges are included. A new printer should only cost a little more than the cost of new ink cartridges. Considering you only require am all in one home use printer. Check online sites and check stores as there are usually sales ongoing.

How do I get Lexmark X73 to work with my Windows Vista?


I read the Lexmark guide. It says that to began printing, you must remove a sticker and a transparent tape from the bottom of the ink cartridges. My question is " how do I remove the cartridges to check to see if the cartridges are correct"?

Hello,
You can download the drivers from this website:
