SOURCE: install a printer

What a mess this was! I had followed all of the direction exact, and nothing worked right. I finally deleted the printers (all of them) and went through the add a printer wizard (find this by control panel, printers..) I had windows locate, then changed the file to USB as it tried to install on another location. FINALLY, after 3 days of trying... I can now print.

PLEASE NOTE: there was nothing in the resolution center to help me here, and I am not a computer geek, so it was definitely a "fun" install. This may resolve your issue.

Also, check the connection once it says it is installed by putting in a memory card and checking to see if you can view the photos on the card!

Lexmark Pro 715 prints garbage


Sorry, hit the wrong key... IF a different program prints okay, try again with the program that invoked the original issue.

Update windows and the offending program.

The piece that stumps people is the buffer. Print buffers sometimes do not purge easily, and you have to "bleed" the garbage out of the buffer, by turn off, and back on type of procedures.

Lexmark wireless printer 1400 series prints blank pages


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark Z1400 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.


After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My printed pages come out blank


Try to reseat your cartridges into the printer. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert both cartridges. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.
Long period of non-usage can result to drying of ink and clogging in the print nozzles. Try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer. Go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X1200 Series folder > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If this does not help, try to insert different known working cartridges or better yet brand new genuine Lexmark cartridges.

My Lexmark x4850 has stopped prin?t the computer. What is wrongting . Sometimes it will print when I restar


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. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the 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 a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/lY7NTO. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. After the install process, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Hi I purchased an X4975 Lexmark Printer last October and just started getting a message that says it doesn't recognize my printer anymore and a pop up screen suggests I try many things ie: Unplug the...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The recognition issue may arise due to 2 reasons, one the Cable is faulty, but this is ruled out as you have changed the cable now the second thing that I can think of is about the drivers, they get corrupt and you start getting these type of issues.
So, what you should do is first uninstall the driver from you PC, uninstall the support software if installed any. To do this you need to work under the device manager of your Operating system.
Once done, then download the fresh software from here (For all Windows 32-bit) and here (For all Windows 64-bit)
Install the software then plug in the printer cable, it will be detected and installed again, hopefully this will resolve the issue.
Note: To uninstall the printer, the shortest method is Click Start > Programs > Lexmark xxxx series > Uninstall Lexmark xxxx series.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

No power on my Lexmark X8350


That's the same printer I have.

First, make sure the blue "copy" button is lit. Printing is done there.

Then, go to the circle with the checkmark in it and hit the menu, and arrow down to copy papy size and make sure it says "letter".

Click start on your computer, then click control panel, then printers, and make sure Lexmark 8300 series is the default printer and has a green checkmark in a circle.

If all these things are right, you should be able to print a test page and the computer should work fine.

If any one of them are wrong they must be corrected. If you need help on any one of those please write back.
