    I tried adding a generic printer and that did not work. If this is a driver problem, where do I download a usable from?

  • mjpepper Aug 20, 2008

    Yes, that the complete model.

  • mjpepper Aug 20, 2008

    Is your only answer to download a driver?

  • mjpepper Aug 20, 2008

    Was advised to get driver from Lexmark. Tried but printer not listed. How do I get my Z11 Lexmark printer to work under Vista OS?

It looks like this model isn't compatible with Vista. Here's the absolute latest driver for the Z11, if this driver does't work, then I'm afraid it's time for a new printer. This printer was, after all, designed for use with 98, it's had a good run, but it's obsolete.

Your printer is not compatible with Vista. You can purchase a new replacement that will be alot better for as little as 30$. The highest you can go is XP with that printer. If you have a moment to accept and rate this solution I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks,

    Like I said, I was unable to locate your drive so if you click on the box that allows automatic detection Lexmark can probably locate it for you. Some people are having success with using the Z11 colorfine driver for XP on Vista. I am still checking for you.

    Here is the site with information on your problem and the colorfine download

My Canon PIXMA MX700 is not turning on! I have checked all the cords even moved from one outlet to another and its still not turning on. Should I just purchase an new one this model is an old on


Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

If it didn't come with any

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
