20 Most Recent Lexmark E232 Laser Printer Questions & Answers

Windows 10 is Plug and Play so connecting the printer by USB cable, Win 10 should auto-discover it once it is powered up.

If the printer not found message happens after connecting the cable and then auto-discover faults, might try a different USB port on the PC or a different USB cable.

If the error occurs when scanning for new devices, pretty much the same thing goes.

Or the printer has an issue and will not communicate over USB for some reason. Perhaps a factory reset of the printer settings, to clear some erroneous setting, would help.

Last suggestion: make sure your Windows 10 Update is run to take all the latest patches (may take several Update/Reboot cycles to get them all), and that the OS is properly licensed and activated with a valid license key. Some features are disabled when the OS is not activated. Anti-virus software might be blocking the software install needed. If the printer came with a disc, connect the printer, power it on, insert the disc and see if it will install a driver.

The web site shows this printer is discontinued so maybe it is old enough that they didn't produce a Win 10 driver. Windows Update should pick one up if it is available as most HW manufacturers publish their drivers through the Windows Update process.

If the smudge marks are down the edges of the paper, the PC Kit needs replaced.

The E232 cartridge uses a chip to set the page count on the printer. To reset this you need to replace the chip on the cartridge. Your friendly cartridge remanufacturer has access to the chip. They can source one for you.

Try to install the latest drivers. It may solve the problem.

Have the same problem after 1,500 pages! This was Lexmark's solution (and it worked)...

Take the paperfeed tray out and you will see a red lever , press it
downwards and you will see the paperfeed rollers coming down , you need to
pull the rubber tyres off those rollers and place them inside out over
them and then try printing any document. Check the paper weight and
the paper type you need to use 20 pounds regular paper and try runnning a
can of compressed air inside the machine.
If rubber tyres on the paper feed rollers are totally worned out you
need to replace the feed rollers.
