Ink level reporting is a problem for most lexmarks. Check for new software updates. Further I'd need to knwo what type of network is being used or if you are connecting each computer directly to the computer via usb/parallel port. If it is the former (which I assume it is) then you need to make sure that the computer that can't be printed from has the proper permissions to access the printer, and is capable of seeing it on the network. Further, you should check your router's printer control and recognition software if its a Linksys router.

Making noise like its printing but nothing comes out on paper


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 4800 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.

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.

My lexmark 4850 wireless will not communicate with computer


Disable any Firewall/Antivirus you have running and try a new print.
If still an issue, go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right-click on Notepad and choose 'Run as Administrator' (if on Vista/W7). Try to print this notepad document. If it prints, it's Windows User Account Control that is blocking the print. This can be disabled in the Control Panel - User Accounts. 

If it's wireless, you can try re-installing the printer using USB connection in order to eliminate the wireless network as the issue. 
If it's still an issue, you can check your computer manufacturers website for updates for your chipset (USB drivers).

Cannot use Lexmark X4850 printer without installation disc.


Hi,

You should be able to go to the lexmark.com web site and search for your printer. Go to downloads and enter your printer description or X4850. This is the result I got. If your computer is running Windows, then you need to get either the download for 32 bit or 64 bit software. See microsoft.com link to tell the difference.

LexmarLk X4850 fax wireless set-up


Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.

Fax: this will need a phone line.

If the printer itself is wireless, it does not need to recognize your wireless computer network. Call Lexmark to walk you through proper installation. Lexmark's manuals are not adequate regarding setup, in my opinion.
