Question about Lexmark X7170 All-In-One InkJet Printer
SOURCE: Lexmark X4850 wireless set-up
I have a Lexmark X4850, every time I print a job it prints a blank page first then the document. I have tried to tell it to print 1-1 or 1-3 but it continues to print that blank page first. any suggestions.

With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.
To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

You have free tech support with Lexmark for this printer. You might try contacting them. Secondarily, you could try resetting the factory defaults from the front screen of the printer, and removing the power block (the power cord is connected to it) then reinserting it.
You can access driver downloads directly at the Lexmark support site. I know that during my setup of a P705 that it would not automatically download the updates.
