printer problems

  JaePea 19:34 07 Nov 07

I have just purchased a Lexmark X4850 (wireless). I have installed it on my desktop pc via USB as my desktop is not wireless, it has installed properly, the printer shows on my desktop but the printer is not receiving the signal to print. I have done all the usual things ie switch off firewall, can anybody tell me why the printer is not getting the connection, I need help please it driving me absolutely MAD!!!!!!!

Try checking Printer Properties and that it is on a USB port, not a wireless one.

It should not need a signal, it all goes through windows Spooler. Is this a XP computer or Vista? If Vista you need to download Vista Drivers from Lexmark

Hi Jolyjohn I checked the printer properties and it is on a USB port any more suggestions?

How about trying another USB cable. I had a problem the other day when my Pantone Huey would not function, even tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it. Still no action but when I changed the USB cable all began to work again.

Just a thought!
