    I tried a lot of procedures before this and none of them worked, this procedure works to reset the IP address. Cisco is correct that in step 3 you turn the printer on and you need to press the Continue button to initiate the sequence. Also, in step 6, for me, it was the paper and arrow lights flashing that did the reset.

Make sure you are using the correct IP address, If you do not know the IP address of the printer, print a network setup page and locate the IP address in the TCP/IP section. To make sure you may also reset the NVRAM of your printer. To see instructions on how reset NVRAM you may click on the link http://bit.ly/p7ixP6


Once you get the correct IP address, please do the following steps


Open the printer

Reset ip address


If you use DSL or a cable modem you could try (as mentioned above) resetting your IP address. Go to the RUN command, type "command"

There you can type:
/ipconfig
(shows your current IP)

/ipconfig /ALL
(more details such as when the current IP "lease" expires)

/ipconfig /renew
(renews your IP address)

/ipconfig /release
(drops your current IP)
Bell High Speed users need only reset the modem to obtain a new IP. You can check your current IP address from http://www.ip-details.com

Lexmark Ed260 does not print


OK, if it's timing out that means the printer is not visible to the network. When you used the setup disc, you said it found the same address? What address does it detect? It will mostly likely start with 192.168.x.x. During the setup process does it offer to use DHCP vs a static IP address?

Do you know the IP addresses of the 8 machines on your network? You'll want to make sure the printer doesn't use the same address as that would cause an IP conflict and prevent it from working properly on the network. Preferably you'll want to use an address outside the scope. For example, if your DHCP server is set to give out addresses from 192.168.1.1-.20 then you should make the printer 192.168.1.21. Hope this makes sense.

If that still doesn't get you anywhere, connect the printer directly to a PC via USB and make sure you can print. It's possible it's an issue with the printer, but my guess it's just a network config issue.

Where do i find the ip address for my lexmark z705 printer


Hi,

This may help.

How do I find IP address of a network printer?

Often times we see a networked printer suddenly stop working and you need to find a static (private) ip address of the printer to diagnose further. How do we find IP address of a networked printer? There are a few different ways to go about finding it.
1. A network printer with built-in ethernet port usually provides a menu button that will allow you to display IP address assigned to it. You may also try printing self test or configuration page from your printer.
2. If you can't find an IP address of a network printer from the menu display or your printer is connected to a printer server with no display, you may find its address from any networked computer configured to use the printer. To find the printer IP address from a Windows machine, perform the following.

  • Start -> Printers and Faxes, or Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes
  • Right-click the printer name, and left-click Properties
  • Click the Ports tab, and widen the first column which displays IP address of the printers
3. If your networked printer uses DHCP, you may connect to your router and find the IP address of the printer from DHCP status page. The router displays all host machines that are assigned dynamic IP addresses.
4. You may also try pinging your network from a computer connected to the network, and lookup an arp table. On your computer, click [Start] -> [Run...] and type "cmd" and [Enter]. Type "ipconfig" to find your network address. The network address is found by performing a logical AND operation on your IP address and the subnet mask. For example, if you IP is 192.168.1.101 and subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, then the network address is 192.168.1.0. Ping your network using a broadcast address, i.e. "ping 192.168.1.255". After that, perform "arp -a" to determine all the computing devices connected to the network. One of the IP found is your networked printer.
5. You may also use "netstat -r" command to find an IP address of all network routes. However, if your printer has problem communicating with other network devices, you may not be able to find IP address of the printer using "netstat" command.

I want connect my lexmark e260dn with ethernet cable, but is not in same network range. How to solve this problem


These instructions generally apply to all networkprinters with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP LaserJetprinters, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc. This example is for a network HP LaserJet printer. To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect printserver) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer's menu and enablethe Network Card - these print servers use a static IP address therefore,configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of yournetwork. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a highnumber say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the sameIP address to a computer on your network). Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IPaddress range that the router issues to the computers on your network andconfigure the static IP address in the printer's network configurationaccordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver onyour computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cableto the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - rightclick on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on AddPort.
6. In available ports - click onStandard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IPaddress of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enablebi-directional support and then OK

I need to reset the NVRAM


Resetting or reinitializing the network card's NVRAM will clear all TCP/IP configuration information. To have a record of this information, it is recommended that you print a network settings page prior to performing the reset procedure. Press pattlnk_8302006_1627-e120con.jpg to print both printer and network settings pages.
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press the left front cover release button and pull the front door down.
  3. Press and hold pattlnk_8302006_1721-e120can.jpg while powering the printer On.
  4. Release pattlnk_8302006_1722-e120can.jpg when the pattlnk_8302006_1723-exclam.jpg LED is illuminated. NOTE: Be patient as the LEDs will light up in multiple patterns before finally stopping at pattlnk_8302006_181-exclam.jpg
  5. Close the front cover. NOTE: Observe that the pattlnk_8302006_1735-e120con.jpg, pattlnk_8302006_1735-rdydta.jpg, pattlnk_8302006_1736-tonrlow.jpg and pattlnk_8302006_1739-rmvpr.jpg LEDs will be illuminated at the same time. This is known as the Home position.
    OPTION: Have the customer hold down pattlnk_8302006_1735-e120con.jpg to print a "Printer Diagnostics" menu page.
  6. Slowly press the pattlnk_8302006_1743-e120can.jpg button until the pattlnk_8302006_1750-rmvpr.jpg, pattlnk_8302006_1847-tonrlow.jpg, and pattlnk_8302006_1748-rdydta.jpg LEDs are illuminated. NOTE: Normally, this will require you to press the pattlnk_8302006_1743-e120can.jpg button 11 to 13 times, depending on the options and features installed.
  7. Press and hold pattlnk_8302006_1754-e120con.jpg until all LEDs flash or strobe from left to right, then release the button. Wait until this process stops with a pattern of three LEDs that should resemble the Step 6 pattern.
  8. Press and hold pattlnk_8302006_1844-e120can.jpg until the light pattern returns to the pattern of four LEDs in Step 5 or theHome position.
  9. Turn the printer Off.
  10. Turn the printer On.
    NOTE: If on a DHCP network, wait 30 seconds to see if the DHCP server/router sends out an IP address to the device. A settings page will automatically print if this is successful. A longer wait may be required on other networks.
  11. Press pattlnk_8302006_1814-e120con.jpg to print the settings pages and observe that all the TCP/IP settings have been reset.
  12. Reconfigure the device using DHCP, Auto IP (zero configuration) or the IP Setup Utility.

Hope this helps.
