Try to plug it in to a different power outlet without any surge protector. If it still doesn't help, then the printer may already be defective.

Have you put the drivers for the printer?

Note some new operating systems like vista may not be able to support your
drivers if the driver was for an older operating system.

How to connect the printer

Access the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.lexmark.com
Click "Select Your Product"
Enter 'z645' and do the search.

You'll find that it is a USB device, and that you can download device-drivers from this site.

Thyer printer that has printed letters 'till

The firewall is a protection the computer has..and usually blocks some devices or programs to connect to the internet or function ...It is used to mainly protect the computer against the external intruders ...To check if the printer is firewalled ..you have to go into control panel from the start menu..and in there double click the firewall icon ..and on the exceptions ..check the list and see if the printer is ticked...if it is not..tick the case and click ok ...
But ..my advice is to reinstall the printer's driver from scratch ..and after that see if it works...usually when the printer seam to lit up ..and work ..but do not answer to the commands from the computer ..the driver is corrupted and causes the issue ..
To reinstall it clean ..you have to go back in the control panel ...open the add remove programs..and remove the old program for the printer..(you will find it on the list by the printer's name ...there can be more than one program associated with the printer if it is a multifunctional ..)
after that ,,,insert the disk that came with the printer..and run all programs on i t...and follo w the instructions on screen ...At one moment you will be asked to connect the printer..and continue the installation until finish ...or ..you install all programs and after that connect the printer and restart the computer ...Im almost sure that this will fix the issue if the printer do not have a physical damage ..
Have a nice day , and ask for guidance if something causes you misunderstandings ...

Can only get black when


Maybe it needs to set up from the printer properties. Right click on the printer and choose PRINTING PREFERENCES OR PRINTING PROPERTIES, then go to color tab and uncheck the PRINT IN GREYSCALE. or choose AUTOMATIC.

If not, it might be the colored ink catridge is clog and need to nozzle cleaning. Try to rub the cartridge nozzle into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows and make sure colored ink flows and the try to print again.

If not, it might be the ink cartridge is faulty, try to replace new colored cartridge. Even if it still new purchase but if stuck up for a very long time. Ink might dries up or clogged which makes the ink cartridge defective.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Doing the "clean printhead/cartridge nozzles" multiple times would have cleared clogged nozzles. You can also try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth. If that still won't help, try to replace your cartridge with a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty.

Ensure that the cables are properly connected; you need to ensure that your printer is properly connected, and plugged in, and also the cable is accurately connected to the computer as well.
