Lexmark z1420 wireless issue Mac Tiger

Hi there, 
i have a problem with a z1420: the printer is set up for wifi access and correctly connects to the router. After that i installed the lexmark software, everything went fine. But when I switch everything off and then on again (the mac, the router, the printer), my Mac simply won't find the printer, although I can ping the printer and even access the print server via Safari. That's quite annoying. In addition, i can't add the printer in the MacOs Print Centre... has anyone an idea what's going wrong?
Any help will be highly appreciated!

Sure..the printer is lost as a network connection..you'll need to 'refind' that printer through preferences

Thw wifi in the lexmark z1420 is not turning on at all


Please try to reset your printer's wireless network settings. Refer to this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Once you reset the printer's network settings, the Wi-Fi light will momentarily turn off then on with orange light.
You can then run the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer to reconfigure the printer to reconnect to your wireless network.

How do i get my printer to work and stop the wifi button from flashing red? my internet is connected but the printer is not


Blinking WiFi light indicates that the printer is either trying to connect to a wireless network or not at all. Unplug the printer from the power outlet. Replug after 10 seconds. This will give enough time for the printer to reset. If WiFi light continues to blink, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. Please refer to this article: How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. The WiFi light will then turn off momentarily, then lights up solid orange. Launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility to reconnect printer to your wireless network.

NO WI-FI LIGHT. I tried repeatedly to reset per Lexmark's instructions and others online. Still NO wi-fi light...not orange, not blinking, nothing. Also how would you get the IP address from Windows if no...

My lexmark z1420 is not wireless - it used to be - what has happened?


The printer may still have the old settings from your router in its wireless network adapter. You will need to reset the Lexmark Z1420 wireless network adapter first. To do this, follow the instructions found in the article on this link: http://bit.ly/dDn8C2. Once you'll have a solid orange wifi light again, run the Wireless Setup Utility like how you setup the printer for wireless connection for the first time. Let me know if you still need more assistance. Thanks.

Hey, i recently got a Mac and tried to connect my Z1420 wireless Lexmark printer to it. The wireless did not work, but when i connected it via USB the printer worked. I settled for this but recently the...


You stated you have a mac. Is your Mac a laptop that provides wireless? Or are you on a Mac desk top connected to a router that has wireless included with it.. If you have either than you need to go into your network and sharing to set-up the wireless printer. This will give you access to your router via desktop or your wireless settings via laptop,
Once there if you are already using wireless settings you are going to have to allow your printer in through your wep or wap encryption settings. This was set up when you first started using your wireless to keep out intruders.

Wireless Connection


I have the same problem and I have exhausted all options that I can think of. Last night I reset the network settings for the printer and started over and at the end, after going through the whole wizard again, it spit out a new network page and looked like the problems were fixed. (was now on channel 11,used to be on 6, also said it was connected to the wireless network when before it said it was not). I got excited thinking it had finally connected, but when I went to print a test page I got the same communication problem error message. I just got off the phone with Lexmark Support and he told me it was most likely printing to the wrong port. When I go to my printers properties page, it is printing to USB001 (Lexmark virtual printer port), and he told me it needs to be on "Lexmark 1400 Series" port. I will try to create a new port tonight and hopefully I have "Lexmark 1400 Series" as an option to choose from.

Jeez this thing is exhausting. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy and I have wasted 4 nights working on this thing to no avail. How do people who don't know their way around a computer handle wifi printing to the 1420??

Lexmark z1420 wireless issue


I found out after alot of searching to perform a hard reset, put the printer into standby mode ie, flashing power button, hold it for two seconds and then release

the open the printer cover
then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds, try 40 if in doubt (yes your finger does become numb at this point)

Let go and wait 40 seconds, and it should then boot back to factory defaults so you can start again

If you do get it working wireless from a mac in infrastructure mode I would like to hear, because I have yet to manage this, connected and routed via a bt voyager 2110 wifi router.
