20 Most Recent Lexmark Color JetPrinter 1100 InkJet Questions & Answers

You likely mean LEXMARK. The printer will function without software other than what is in internal to it (firmware). If you want to print from your computer, you will need the print driver installed.

Do you have a Lexmark 1100?
Kazaa is a good way to get viruses in your computer. All downloads from Kazaa (or any other sharing program) should be selected and scanned by antivirus software before you do ANYTHING with them. Kazaa bypasses your antivirus.
This seems VERY fishy - do a complete antivirus sweep, NOW.

hhmmm...ok..well..here's a suggestion.
A. remove the old printer that you installed from printer menu, through control panel.
B. Get the driver again. Sometimes they get corrupted.
C. Install the driver again.. Unplug printer from computer and power it down.
D. Make sure that the driver installs cleanly.
E. Plug printer in again, no power.
F. Turn Power On. XP should 'see' the printer show up on the window. If this does NOT happen, then the cable is most likely no good.
Let us know how this works for you.

You need to make your printer the default. Go to Printers and faxes dialog box and right click your printer then make the default.

Delete the printer from the printer and faxes dialog box. Then add printer again. This should work.

i had just this problem. the lexmark site was rubbish, as was the techs. i could print, but not scan.

i fixed it like this. on the start bar, find the printer, x1100series. there is an option "UNINSTALL". select, and all of the software will go. let the machine go through it's paces, and once complete RESTART. [if you use the control panel, there is a residue left over, which prevents the next step.]

then next step is to install the printer, and hey presto - it worked for me:)

You can download the drivers need to install your printer here http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

This is the Lexmark site, therefore, the best place to download the software you need for your printer.

Once you get to the downloads page, you will need to select your printer model from the drop down menu. On the next page you will select your operating system. The following page will provide you with a list of drivers. Find the one that's appropriate for your printer and click Download.

Also, it's a really good idea to copy or write the file to a CD. This way, you will be able to use the CD to install the printer in the future.

Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya.

Yes, Tyrone, there is a way to download the installation files (or drivers). If you need the software to install your Lexmark printer then follow this link http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

When you get to the downloads page, select your printer model in the drop down menu. Select your operating system on the following page. The next page that you come to will have a list of drivers. Look here to find the appropriate drivers then click Download. After you download these files, you can run them directly from your computer to install the printer.

Have you tried printing without spooling?

Disable the spooling feature to see if this still happens.

Right-click printer then click Properties. On the Advanced tab of the printer Properties windows, Select Print directly to the printer.
Click Apply.

You may notice that printing from an application may be slower; however, the point in doing this is to find out if the spooler is causing the issue by bypassing it completely when printing.

I don't know if you used the CD that comes with the printer or if you downloaded drivers from the Lexmark site but you might want to double check the drivers that you're using with the most current and appropriate drivers for your printer. Also make sure that all cable connections are snug.

Here is the link to download drivers from Lexmark http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

In this case, the first thing that I would do is re-install the printer.

Delete the printer from your computer then, if you have the installation disk, run the setup program to reinstall the printer and all of its drivers.
If you don't have or don't want to use the installation disk, you can download drivers directly from the manufacturer's Web site here

I could have provided a link directly to the download page if you would have provided the name of your operating system (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, etc). However, it's fairly simple finding your drivers. After you get to the Lexmark Web site you will need to type your printer model (1100 Colorjet) in the text box.
On the next page, you will need to select your operating system.
The following page will provide a link to download the driver files used to install the printer.
Make sure you download the correct drivers for your printer model. Using the incorrect drivers can cause print issues such as this one or cause wierd characters to print instead of letters. This kind of thing can also happen if one of the entries placed in the Windows registry by the printer software has become corrupt.

Download the file and run it to re-install the printer.
Print a test page from the printer itself to rule out any issues with the hardware. (You might also want to download the users guide if you don't know how to print a test page from the printer). If the page comes out blank, you will have to stop here and find out why you can't print directly from the printer (this would be an issue caused by the printer). If not, you can move on to the next step.

Next, print a test page from the operating system to rule out any problems related to hardware.
Start > Printers and Faxes > Right-click printer > Click Properties on the General Tab > Click Print Test Page.
If both test pages print successfully then you should be able to print anything without a problem and can try to print and email or word document to see how it comes out.
If the test page printed from the printer came out okay but this one came out blank, this indicates a software related issue and you would have to troubleshoot further.

I know this sounds like a lot to do, however, all you need to do is download the correct drivers (unless you choose to use the CD that came with it), uninstall then re-install the printer, and print a test page from the printer, one from the computer, then print any random document.

Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya.
