My Lexmark X73 all-in-one will not print from word - office 2000. I can print a test page and I can print from wordpad but when I try to print from word it sends the info and says printing complete but no pages are printed.
Have I loaded the wrong driver? Although when I loaded the driver it seemed the correct one.
I just installed it Friday night and it prints really fast and the quality of print is great. Am I overlooking something simple? My os is ME. The scanner/photocopier work fine.
and it would be worth altering the way the application sends the data to the printer. You can do this in the printer properties dialogue - try setting it to send the the data direct to the printer, i.e. not to start printing as soon as the first page is sent.
This is a not uncommon problem with Word - see how you get on.
Have you tried looking under the compatability tab in Word. It's under Tools/Options. Also, have you tried a different font?
You don't say if the blank pages being thrown out are exactly the same number as the document and if there's a graphic?
Incidentally, it's unlikely in your case, but a faulty power supply can cause the symptoms you describe. Just in case, if you're using a surge protector or multiway adaptor, try plugging straight into a wall socket.
I also once had a similar problem with a USB printer. Plugging it into a different USB port cured all. Incidentally, if it is USB, does it recommend you install the driver with the USB plugged in or out?
