Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers

3 Answers

My lexmark printer won't work with my new dell laptop computer, I've tried downloading the stuff from the lexmark website, that didn't work, I tried using the disc that came with the printer, that didn't work, and a friend who is a geek downloaded a software patch, as these two hardware things aren't compatable, but that only worked temporairly. What do you suggest I do now? I'd just as soon not have to buy another printer, when I believe that this is a software problem, but I'm not too good with software problems.

It could be due to the printer driver not installed properly. Try to uninstall your existing Lexmark printer driver first before installing the new driver. To do that, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X5400 Series Printer > Tools > Uninstall. After the uninstall process, restart your pc when prompted.
To re-install the printer driver, please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X5495 Printer Driver on your computer.

Cannot get my Lexmark Z2420 printer working--it has the wi-fi capability, but trying to connect it via USB. Should be plug-and-play but windows makes a sound like it recognizes it, but nothing comes up as...


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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


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

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc 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, then try to print again.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/9xPHL4. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.


If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.
