Lexmark Printer Problems

Lexmark Printer Problems by Randy (7/25/04 9:18 PM) +34 + / -
I have an All in One Lexmark X1100 printer. I have a color cartridge in there, it just ran out of ink, so instead of buying a new cartridge, I got a refill kit and did it myself. Now when I try to print something in black, it turns out green. I thought I didn't have enough magenta, so I put more and that didn't fix the problem. I tried cleaning it and it still hasn't helped. All the colors seem to be off now. What can I do?

Thanks

You know I have had similar problems when I tried to use the re-fill kits. I finally gave up and just purchased the cartridges. Saving money isn't always the best avenue to go.

I need to load my printer in my new computer. I have lost my CD thats loads it. Which download do I need to get the printer download on my computer.


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Robin (8/23/04 2:28 PM) +3 + / -
Hi Donna,
I went out to Lexmark website below.
http://www.lexmark.com/
Click on...drivers and downloads (right above the word shortcuts)
Then select what preferred language...(U.S. English)
This next step is going to require looking at your printer, printer manual, etc. to select which printer you have. Click on the picture then it will bring up the model #s of that particular make..
Then click on that model # it will then take you to what Operating System you are running. Choose from the list.
Once this is done the download may take awhile depending on the internet speed.
If you need something else or more help.. just email me.. I enjoy helping people the best that I can..
I hope this helps.
Robin

Hi...

I'm not so into computers, so I don't know if the problem I have with my printer (All in one X1150) is technical or something I didn't installed well...the problem is that I can't print anything, I can scan very well and also the test page gets printed as well..but when it comes to print anything else (a text document, photo or use the copy option of the printer) it just doesn't print, all jobs get queued but none of them get printed...I don't know what's wrong, Does anybody know what can I do?

thanks
Paco

When I try to print, I get an error message that says" printer is busy, try again later". The machine is never busy when this message comes up.

Lexmark Printer Problems Scanning Photos at Hires by Garranmore (7/6/05 9:28 AM) +2 + / -
Help!

I am trying to scan a photo at resolutions above 600 bpi, my machine has 1gb main memory, and 120gb harddrive, but the lexmark
control centre keeps telling me that I haven't got enough memory or that the disk isn't large enough .... I'm running on XP SP1

Does anyone have the solution ?

Thanks.

Martin Roll.


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (7/6/05 9:44 AM) +32 + / -
My X73 doesn't pull in the paper right. It keeps getting stuck. Is this a roller problem? We've looked to see if anything is stuck and nothing is there. Can't see if the rollers move when you print, you can't have the door open and print at the same time. I've tried Lexmark reccomendayion of the envelope, and it doesn't pass through. Anyone with any ideas? They'd be much appreciated.
Thanks.

The computer keep saying that the ubs cable is not communicating to printer-i purchased a new cable-that didn't fix the problem-I now have all kinds of problems going on. I need help bad


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems (Communication) by guest (10/19/05 9:25 AM) + / -
I just resolved the problem of my Lexmark X1150 not communicating with my computer.

I went to Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager.
Click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
For every USB Controller listed, there should be a USB hub.

I noticed I had four contollers but only three hubs.
I clicked to highlight the third controller, right clicked and chose "update driver".

From there everything pretty much happened automatically. First the driver updated, then the Lexmark printer was recognized and installed as if for the first time. It runs great now.

Hope this helps!!!

I have a lexmark printer and every time I try and print something it gives me a message that says print to file. I do not know why......everything is hoked up correctly and all is well except......

Please help.
Thanks
Curtis


Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by CAPS (10/20/05 5:00 PM) + / -
Curtis Have you checked your printer setting, if you click the FILE menu button on the upper tool bar, open that window and select print
it will show your your selected printer or printers, go down the list to comment, across to the right is a box to check if you want the document to be stored to a file instead of being sent to the printer, if the box has a checkmark remove the checkmark by clicking the box, this should now send the info you want to the printer.
Just a note, if you select the quick print icon in program you are using, the program simply reverts back to the printer setting that are in place. If this does not solve the situation you can also check you printer properties through you start icon, then settings, then printers, then left click printer selection,then right click properties, then you can check all the diffent port settings and divers settings as well as diffent drivers.

Good luck


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (10/21/05 12:20 PM) + / -
Hey

I refill Lexmark Cartridges all the time at my work. If your color are coming out green, orange or purple it means that there is some cross contamination with your cartridge. I see this happening all the time and it is not serious problem. All you need to do is fold up a piece of paper towel and attach it to the print head (bottom part of cartridge where the ink comes out) with a rubber band and allow the ink to bleed in a plastic dish for a while. Check it periodically to see that you are getting a dab of 3 solid rectangles of Yellow, Magenta, and Cyan (blue). Cleaning mostly helps for clogged cartridges, but allowing them to bleed will get rid of your mixed ink. You may have to refill your cartridges if you have been bleeding them for a long time.

Hope that helps

I BOUGHT A BLACK REFILL KIT AND FILLED MY BLACK CARTRIDGE BUT NOW IT DOESN'T PRINT BLACK IT SOUND LIKE IT IS PRINTINT BUT THE PAPER COMES OUT BLANK.


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems- Optra Color 45 by donjean (10/25/05 7:33 PM) +3 + / -
I have the Opra Color 45 Printer. It is a used one but I have
been using it for over a year. Recently, only the Color cartridge
would print and the Black one wouldn't. I found a bunch of black
ink underneath where the cartridges are stored before printing
and have cleaned out most of it with Q-tips. It did print a
few pages then but is back to not printing the black ink. Can
anybody tell me what is happening and how to fix it myself.
Thanks,
Jean

paper jams


Re: Lexmark X1185 Printer Problems? by ME (11/26/05 7:25 AM) +3 + / -
I have been printing with my multifunction PrinTrio for some months now and I have even replaced the inks, but now all of a sudden my paper will not feed without just feeding the paper on one side, its still sort of new what should I do?


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by hpwizard (11/26/05 3:03 PM) +2 + / -
Make sure you have the paper guide up against your paper. If that is ok, you may have something trapped in the paper feed area.
Hope this helps?!

Color cartridge (brand new) will not print. Anything that is in color is just a blank spot on my paper. Black works fine. Any suggestions on what I can do to make my color cartridge work. Thank you.

My printer is printing very slow after I click the print icon.
What settings should I use to make it the fastest. I've done it before, but failed to write it down. The choices are "LexMark' and WinPrint then to the right of these options it says things like RAW RAWAUTO TEXT and etc....... I need to know where to set the settings for the fastest response time.

hey,
I went to the control panel option of my computer- selected 'printers and other hardware' - then selected 'add a printer' - then printer 'install wizard' took me thru the rest, and mine is now up as of 12/07/05.
hope it works for you.
p.s. i hope you saved the receipts for all the power cables they made you guys buy.

Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Help US!!! Somebody (2/2/06 10:49 PM) +1 + / -
We bought a lexmark2300 series. on our pc we use english and arabic settings. It was on the english setting when we put the new disc into the pc to load the new printer/scanner. Well...it all loaded in arabic. But the translation is really bad and we cant figure the darned thing out. So I went into the settings and tried to uninstall it. But now it wont uninstall... it just loops around and will not uninstall... we took the printer/scanner back to the store we bought it from and got another printer to replace it.
But I still do not like the fact that I was unable to uninstall the lexmark2300 series printer/scanner from my pc. what do we do???
thanks to all who read this pittifull plea for help.


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by hhenry (2/3/06 6:58 AM) +2 + / -
Somehow my Lexmark 70 black ink cartridge has become clogged. It's almost full, so I know it's not out of ink. How do I get the top off to run alcohol thru it? I've tried every other mode of cleaning it from soaking the head in alcohol, fantastick, etc. At my wits end... Can you advise?
Thanks,
John Henry



Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (2/8/06 2:24 PM) + / -
Hi, make sure you've removed the protective tape from the ink cartridge. Make sure the cartridge is _firmly_ into the carriage, and make sure the snap-down clip is locked in place. You should then only have to do the align thing once. Read the screen.... it's a 2-step process!!

You did click [cancel] when windows found your hardware the first time didn't you? - ok

Hope I helped.

I have a Lexmark x1180 and I have been really unhappy with the colours it prints since I got it :(

The colour output is terrible...I have gone into settings and looked to see everything is set up on there and it is. I know what I'm doing with computers / printers but there is nothing I can do that seems to fix this problem and it's really bugging me as I haven't been able to print anything decent out unless it's in mono.

I used to have an old Epson which printed lovely colours, the same as you would see on screen and I am about ready to ditch this Lexmark! I hate it!!


Re: Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (2/11/06 8:57 PM) + / -
Yes, I have done all that, but to no avail. But, if I install the drivers once, wouldn't windows stop trying to install them again? gone crazy here.



Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Nonymous (2/13/06 12:09 PM) + / -
Maybe the disk is corrupted. Have you looked to see if you can download the driver for free from the Lexmark main website? Have you made sure you have enough free memory to accept the program?


Re: Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (2/13/06 6:03 PM) + / -
I have done that as well,, and still tries to install it new. I may just call lexmark support and see what's up.

IT WILL REBOOT THEN AND SAYS YOU HAVE AN ERROR IN FAT32 AND YOU SHOULD SEND PROBLEM TO MICROSOFT WHICH I DID. NOTHING HAS CHANGED. ANYONE GOT A SUGGESTION I WOULD APPRECIATE IT. THANKS, BIG BOY


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (2/15/06 4:49 PM) + / -
I had the same problem. Seems like the red channel in the printer (not the cartridge) has failed. It can't be fixed. If you want to print just black, get your re-loader to fill all the coloured inks with black. If you want colour, bin it, and get a different brand. The solution is not to buy another Lexmark, but get something else that works.
The cost of freighting it back for warranty etc. is too high. Costs more to fix than to get a new printer. It's a throw-away item, anyway.

Lexmark X1150 prints envelopes in color! by jenjeneer (2/19/06 6:51 AM) + / -
My Lexmark X1150 has been a great printer for a year. But at some point it started to print in red instead of black. I've since changed both cartridges so I know it's not a problem with low ink.

Any help would be appreciated!

I had a problem recently where the Lexmark X73 printer Power light was blinking and I got the "trouble communicating with the printer" error message. I could not print anything, not even a test page. I cleaned the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge using a q-tip dampened with distilled water. It did the trick! The cartridge didn't look dirty, but apparently was just enough to cause the problem.

I found the following sites helpful:

Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by GLENDAXXX (3/1/06 11:43 AM) + / -
Can anyone help me figute out how to get my Lexmark x2350 working properly?
(My system is windows 98se.)
I had the all in one Lexmark installed and running fine when i bought it in september last year.But i had serious pc errors which led to me having to uninstal windows,to re-instal,so my pc would run properly.I reinstalled the printer,and the actual print works,but i cannot get it to show a scanned image on my pc.
The scanner does the function,but nothing turns up on my screen.just a box saying the lexmark is in use,(but it is'nt) and then it freezes my pc.(this is only when i preview or scan the image)
So after that i thought maybes i would download the drives from the Lexmark site (after i uninstalled it from my system)Just in case it was my installation disc.Yet it is exactly the same outcome.I got in touch with lexmark,and they gave me a list of do's and dont's.
After trying their advice,i still have the same problem.
Does anyone know how i could put this right please.
After reading the other messages,i decided to have a look in my pc
i came across a error on Microtek (scanner)Parralell Host Adapter.
The device status states that its either not present or working properly,or does not have all the drivers installed(code 10)
I tried updating driver,and it says the best one is already installed.But nothings changed,its still the same.
I would really appreciate any ideas and advice.Please
Thankyou.
Glenda.

Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Amie2 (3/7/06 6:08 AM) + / -
I have a Lexmark 1100, bought NEW about a year ago. The thing used up the black ink that came with it and will not recognize the new ($20+) black ink cartridge,#17. I get a message box that asks if the ink is new or old; I choose new, nothing happens. The clickable "Next" button does nothing. The message box sits on my desktop and will not go away, there is no way to remove it except to shut down and reboot. The printer WILL NOT recognize the new ink cartridge. Yes, I made sure it was well seated, yes, I made sure the top was locked down, yes, I removed the safety tape, NO, I did not touch the bottom. I have disinstalled, reinstalled and the thing will NOT work. Lexmark, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO PUT SUCH A PIECE OF TRASH ON THE MARKET WITH NO RECOURSE TO THE BUYER!!!! I will tell everyone I know, DO NOT BUY LEXMARK. IT IS TRASH.

Re: Lexmark printer problems by Bunny (3/13/06 4:02 PM) + / -
Lately my pictures come out faded/dull and some letters/words are either missing or too light to read or see when I print. I have brand new ink cartridges (which are costly) installed them properly (like I have done in the past) and used the "clean" feature, checked the alignment and reset the print result to best but still get faded pictures. Most of the time I use regular paper for pictures in reports etc, rarely photo paper. It is a Z23 and never had a problem with it before, now it has turned to crap and it is frustrating. Why all this problem now when I need my printer and can't afford a new one.

Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by smtips (3/25/06 2:46 AM) + / -
I have a Z515 running Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.5. It was working fine a few days ago, tried to print today and nothing. Ran through all the cleaning stuff many times, paper towel, all that stuff. Reinstalled the drivers half a dozen times, ran Printer Setup Repairs, Repaired Permissions, ran Diskwarrior from another drive. I popped in another cartridge, because I figured that first cartridge was bad. I knew it wasn't an empty cartridge.

The problem is, I can print an alignment page fine. I can clean the print heads, it prints that page. It will NOT print a test page, nor will it print from any application. Yes, I checked Page Setup within the applications and set to the Lexmark. All it does when it tries to print anything but an alignment or cleaning page, is the job starts in the queue, then stops within 2 seconds. Very consistent happens every time. OH, one other thing...the printer setup utility tells me there isn't a black cartridge installed at all (I'm only printing with black)! I suspect this is the real problem, that nothing thinks the printer has ink in it except the stupid test pages. So how can I fix it, any suggestions? Stupid thing...it completely quit seeing color cartridges awhile back, I've tried 3 different ones, and even bought a new one, that was a waste of money.

Seems like I've done everything...time to trash this printer and buy another one?

Hi; My problem is with my Lexmark 3200 printer. The black ink cartrage will not snap into place, the colour cartrage is ok. These are new cartrages, I tried the old one, it also would not clip in. I have been told it is not worth repair can you please give me some suggestions or advice. Thank You J.V.R.

spmom, my suggestion to you is , TAKE IT BACK , i just took my lexmark 2300 back, and bought a hp. i have always owned a hp, but decided to go with a lexmark this time, and am i ever sorry!!
i never had one problem with my hp, but this lexmark was a night mare, had to stand over it to make sure the paper would feed, without jamming, and after 20 or so pages, i would get the low ink alert! i went with the all in one lexmark 2300, because the ink cart was 20.00, and the saving money on ink cart was a great deal, or so i thought. your lexmmark will get no better, it will only get worse. lexmark needs to recall all thier printers and make them work correctly!!right now they are junk, and a waste of money!!
good luck

I have been refilling Lexmark cartridges for years. But with my new X3350 inkjet printer shortly after I refilled, the colors got mixed up. I suspect this is some means Lexmark has devised to keep people from refilling. Does anyone know any way around this?

Hello.

I have got the some Lexmark as you and I have nothing but trouble with it. I can't use the printer everything comes out pink. It was fine until I put new black ink in.

Have you sorted yours out yet? I am thinking of just bining it and getting something better.

I have a Lexmark 730 series then it ran out of ink so we thought that was why it stopped working.

What do you think could be the problem? Any help would be appreciated.

Lexmark - cartridge is missing by pha766 (5/15/06 5:57 AM) + / -
Has anyone found a solution to FedUpUser's problem? I'm getting the same message with a brand new black cartridge (#82) on an all-in-one X6170. The machine presently prints using only the color cartridge (so it's bound to run out soon) because it says the new black cartridge I just installed "is missing". I've cleaned the contacts on both the new cartridge and the carrier. I've installed and re-installed the cartridges and reset the printer and performed printer tests... still, the printer does not recognize the new black cartridge as being installed. Color printing seems OK, but I haven't replaced this cartridge recently. Is the only solution getting rid of this cartridge? Thanks. MT

My Lexmark Z31 stopped feeding paper all of a sudden. My daughter was using it and I suspect that a biiiig stack of paper went through at once. Now the paper doesn't want to sit in the proper position in the feeder. I have to stick it way too far down for the printer to even recognize that there is paper in it. Even then, the printer will start printing but the paper still will not feed through at all. Can I fix this? Do I need a new feed tire?

Can someone please tell me if it is normal for a lexmark 2330 to print black and color faded. The black looks like grey, red looks like pink, etc. I have tried 3 ink cartridges and its still the same. I have also tried updating the drivers. I convinced lexmark to send me a new printer on warranty and this one is exactly the same!!! Does anyone know how to fix this? Or is it just that these printers are trash!!!! I wouldn't advise anyone to purchase lexmark ever!! EVER!!! :)


Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by mackisus (5/29/06 8:51 AM) + / -
We've done the refill thing countless times. On Canon they seem to work, but on Lexmark?? Best to either buy new or if you have one those franchises called Cartridge World, try that. Cuts the cost in half.


Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (6/4/06 7:21 AM) + / -
Your problem is a very easy one to fix. Go to file print and change the option of which printer you are printing to. It says "Name", that should be the name of your printer, if it isn't change it.

Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (6/4/06 5:46 PM) + / -
I am having the same problem... it almost looks like the cartridge is slightly different, even though it's the same #/ This is for a Lexmark X5150 and the colour cartridge is #83. I purchased this in London Drugs in Burnaby BC Canada..the cartridge is assembled in Mexico. There are two square holes in the bottom of the new one that were not there on the old one & the base actually looks like the old & new black ones (stragight across the larger bit where the ink comes out.. on the old colour one it is beveled slightly at the corners.

Before I head out & buy another one.. (the differnce is SO slight) does anyone know if they may be selling faulty cartridges out there?

Thanks, Susan

My Lexmark Optra R Laser Printer has been fine up until today. In the middle of an envelope job, it jams. After clearing the paths, it now continually halts just as the paper is exiting the heat roller and claims it's jammed. It won't even print bond paper from the autofeed tray. I can't see any visible obstruction or part that is out of position. Is there a sensor or switch getting in the way, perhaps bumped by the first envelope jam? Correctable?

Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (7/18/06 1:52 AM) + / -
I've just fixed this problem in my Lexmark 2300. There is a white plastic lever (3cm) located on the printed electric circuit, at the back on the right (when looking in front of the printer with the lid open). This lever is supposed to turn off a tiny (4mm) black switch fixed in the printed circuit when you close the lid. If you push in the 1mm pin in this switch you will see the cartridge move to the side. The problem is that the lever fell off in my printer (Lexmark screwed this up!). You may try to push this lever back into position. The lever should be aimed upwards (vertical) and pushed over the switch. Before I did this, I had to take out the grey paper feeder. I managed to to the job with my fingers and scissors although tweezers would be much better for this :-)

7170 paper jams by glassbuggy (8/1/06 7:54 AM) + / -
Hi, I have problems with my 7170 It jams at the three sprung guides at the top of the rear access door. I dont see any forign matter or anything abnormal.

It's as if the spring tension is too tight for the paper.

I am quoting you in full, just to say thanks guys. This also works for the lexmark 2350. Just to clarify, the lever is fitted square side first, over the microswitch, with the curved part so it makes contact with a projection on the lid. Incidentally, it is pressed as the lid closes, so there's no point thinking you can press this by hand.

The best way to do this is to remove the back paper feeder, as you've said, and then with one hand to access from the area where the catridged would be replaced, and the other hand from the paper feeder side, to guide this widget into place. There should be no need to open the machine further.

Hopefully the next person will find this "repair service guide". Someone should provide a guide since i'm sure this happens a lot.

My issue is that my system is telling me that it's found new hardware and the install wizard pops up on the desktop. There's a error message stating that there was a problem installing the hardware and the system cannot find the file specified. When I click on Finish to close the wizard it pops right back up and I'm unable to get it to get the wizard from popping up. I've unistalled and reinstalled the printer, but it doesn't resolve the issue.

I have installed the printer lexmark Z730 series and everything seems to be working fine as far as the printer is concerned, it prints and everything. My issue is that my system is telling me that it's found new hardware and the install wizard pops up on the desktop. There's a error message stating that there was a problem installing the hardware and the system cannot find the file specified. When I click on Finish to close the wizard it pops right back up and I'm unable to get it to get the wizard from popping up.

I have a Lexmark X1100.
It has stopped printing colour.
New cartridge makes no difference - just blank spaces where colour print should be.

I believe this problem has appeared on this forum before but I cannot find it now.

sounds like your scanner is not plugged in, it comes w/ a free 1 yr on site warranty most likely. the plug is a small ribbon cable.

Hi Robin - I read your reply to Donna. I have a Lexmark X63 which is discontinued. When my husband went to change the cartridges (both) something on top usually moves, this time it didn't so he pushed it himself. Now I can't get it to even print out an alignment page. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks, Jeannie

I also have a lexmark X5150 and I just changed both ink cartridges today. The black one is fine, but the colour one is not recognized by the printer. This is really frustrating. I have tried cleaning the contacts on both the printer and the ink cartridge, but it made no difference. I really need some help with this one. Thanks.

Lexmark Z11 prints each line 4 times resulting in an unreadable document. It shifts down about 1/4 of a line and prints it again. This is on 2 different computers. Printer shot? Maybe a lightning strike did this?

Email tocapet@gmail.com if you know a solution.

Hi everyone

I have a Lexmark X75 that was acting all strange (I got it to work briefly a month ago but then it stopped just as suddenly after the purchase of two cartridges of course). The deal is that I am attempting to hook it up to my newer computer and it is theoretically loaded on to this machine but when I go to print anything (even a test page) the result is a whole lot of noise and a whole lot of nothing. The printer is connected the little bar shows up on the bottom of the screen but NOTHING happens..paper does not come out...Nada. Please help as I need this thing for university papers and the like.

thanks in advance

Everytime I try to scan a document and then put it into word, the following error comes up:
An OCR application is provided for you on your CD in the OCR directory. Select OK to cancel this scan operation, install your OCR software, and try your scan again.
What is OCR? I tried installing the CD that came with the printer but that did not help.

Hi everyone!
I've got problems with my lexmark 2300. For over a year I didnt have any problems until recently when my printer started printing everything in red. First I thought it was caused by low ink level but I have recently bought a new cartridge and now it prints in GREEN!!!!! I tried option of Files -> Print -> Properties ->
Options -> Quality and many other options but nothing seems to work.
Do you also have similar problems with this printer? Do you have any ideas how to sort it out?

Everything is connected securely. What is weird I tried installing another printer other than the Z730 series and it recognized that printer but would not print, What printer does the Z730 series recognize?

My lexmark 1185 keeps spweeing out paper with two printed lines about one third to halfway down the page as if it is testing the printer or the cartridge. Usually I can stop this by unplugging the printer from the electrical socket and plugging it back and resending my print job. However the last couple of nights I have not been able to stop it from doing this, and, also I can't get the catridge loading thingmajig to stop at the loading position (in the center where I can see and reach) so I can load a new black and white cartridge. I am going crazy over this as my kid's project was due today, but, because of this printer problem, his project will be handed in late. Please help!

Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (10/24/06 1:27 PM) + / -
X1185 -- stopped printing color. I use mostly dark grey instead of black in documents, so this is kind of a problem. Cartridge shows nearly full.

Cleaned print heads, got black stripes and a few hazy sketchy hints of pink. Took out color cartridge and gently wiped bottom with soft slightly damp cloth -- it has all three colors in there, i can see them on the cloth -- they're in there. Cleaned print heads again, this time i get a good bit of the magenta and a little yellow, not much. Test printed the color document that had been blank, and it printed in color! Well, *a* color. Pink.

Can't count how many times I saw similar problems on this forum, but I've not seen any solutions, just lots of different attempts to fix it, none working. One thing I haven't seen -- are the print heads separate? That might help, I suppose, if someone was willing to hassle with with it, but I'm not -- it's not worth it -- I can buy a brand new better printer for the price of a pair of ink cartridges, which makes cheap low-end printers ... pretty much disposable.

So I'm thinking of taking it out in a field and beating it to death with a baseball bat.

I think the answer is, don't buy Lexmark. Before now I'd had no problems with printers, decided to get the Lexmark X1190 as it was quite cheap and was all-in-one. Since I bought it, I've had no end of problems with it, jamming, printing duplictes... you name it

I went through the support people and they tell me it is my cartridge.
What gives with all of this?

We have a Lexmark X5150 and we are getting the following error
Hardware error 0502, Anyone know what that is? This is the second machine I have had with the same damn error. The other machine was a Dell(made by Lexmark).

Would love to know what the hell the error is. We have no book or disk to refer to.

Does anyone have a Installation Disk for this unit they'd like to get rid of?

If you need parts for a Lexmark unit it's often cheaper just to go to the store and buy a new printer.

The power supply sells on eBay for $15.

Here is a sample auction, I am not recommending any particular seller:

There is no button to turn it on, if it is plugged in and the phone line is plugged in (for faxing) the printer should work.

HI, when I turn on my lexmark z730 printer the cartridge just slams hard back and forth then stops. the light just blinks and the error message comes up "cannot communicate with printer". I have also noticed a thin long plastic strip that has come off. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

I lost my installation disk and downloaded the drivers and software from the lexmark website.
The printer prints but I can not scan. When the all in one screen tries to open it gets stuck on 'Please wait while the all in one prepares to open for the first time'. I uninstalled and reinstalled several time, sigh.......at wits end.

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us
it scans ok so the conection must be fine, i dont understand.
Please can anyone help???
Thanks


Re: Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Stephen (11/24/06 5:44 AM) + / -
The default port for your driver seems to have been changed.

You need to look at the printer properties and then select the correct port.

With windows XP it would be somethink like Start, Printers and Faxes, Right click on your printer, select properties, the click on the ports tab.

The port name should start with USB.

Hey !!

The problem is with the printer settings on ur Computer !! .. I'm sure tht the connection is fine (coz u can SCAN !!).. so the only thing u need to do is to change the port settings of the printer configured on ur Comp !..
So here is hw u go ---------->>>

On ur Computer... Click on "Start" ->> goto "Control Panel" ->>> "Printers and Faxes" >>> Right Click on the Printer icon >>>> Click "Properties" >>> click "Ports" Tab >>> select "USB00.." from the list >>> Click "Apply" >>> Click "OK" >>>> ..Try Printing any test page..

If this doesnt work .. go ahead uninstall and reinstall the printer software... shuld wrk fine !!!

Lexmark 2300 all in one, first printer cartridge change and now it WILL NOT PRINT BLACK (or what they called black,lol) prints purple instead cleaned nozzles as suggested above, still prints purple....


Re: Re: Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (12/19/06 5:24 PM) + / -
you know you can go to Lexmark and they will down load it for you. i had that problem once when i move and could'nt find any thing


Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (12/21/06 2:52 PM) + / -
I have an all in one X6170 and that error code means the encoding strip ( the transparent grey one located above the pulleys controlling the printer cartridge) has come loose. If it's only one side you can put it back on, if it has come loose completely Lexmark reps tell me it is a "hardware failure" and if it's not under warranty you're SOL. My printer was 2 days over the warranty when I got that code. It is very prominent on the Lexmark web-site under technical support as a problem on our printers. I believe that is why my printer is no longer being sold. Also the Lexmark rep sent me a link where I could ge a whole $20.00 off the Lemark printer of my choice....I DON'T THINK SO...I'll NEVER buy one of these POS again. Still under warranty, ask for a local authorized place to get it fixed. With the cost of shipping, paid by you, it's cheaper to get a new printer...just not a Lexmark.

Hi, I've been having problems with my Lexmark3400, It wont let me access my scanner, It tells me to press a button repeatedly to scroll down to the scanner but no matter how many times I press the button it wont scroll down, and when I go to propertys in my control panel it says there are no propertys to display.
Can someone please help me with this?
I only have access to the printer and nothing else.


Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (1/2/07 8:25 PM) + / -
Yo tuve el mismo problema: Lo que sucedio es que existe una "patita" plástica que presiona un botón dentro de la impresora cuando la tapa está cerrada, y al cambiar los cartuchos y cerrar la tapa, esta patita se desprendió, con lo cual no apretaba el botón, y aparecía el mensaje de cerrar la tapa. Debes abrir la impresora con cuidado, manualmente, e intentar de volver a colocar la patita en su lugar y habrás resuelto el preblema.

I am using Lexmark X73 Multi function Printer. When printer command is given, the paper is drawn inside ony a little bit (about 2 inches) and then stops moving further. Only a sound similar to that of printing is heard. The same same is happening when align the cartridges command is given. Kindly let me know the problem. If it is not a major repair, let me know how to rectify it.

WAT DO I NEED TO DO


Re: Re: Re: Lexmark Printer Problems by Anonymous (1/13/07 4:04 PM) + / -
Most likley, the roller that feeds the paper is worn, or the rubber stop has gotten notched and wont let the paper go.
I had to dismantle mine, I did solve the feed issue by removing that rubber on the feed wheel and turning it inside out and sanding down that rubber stop back to smooth.

to anyone with a paper feed problem. search on these forums for dell a940 and read the thread started by fighting bob, it will HELP YOU. loads and loads of people have found items such as pen and caps jammed in their printer. the dell a940 is a rebranded lexmark and the same as yours.
