Lexmark Printer Error

I got a new dell with windows 7, and i have my lexmark driver for my x4530 printer installed. Everything seems to be working fine. When i print, though, when i click on the printer icon to see its status, it says for the item that should be printed, "printer - error. " I press restart, the driver says it's printing and is completed (through the lexmark software). I've tried reinstalling the software and have tried printing through wireless connection and usb connection. Still isn't working. Any ideas?

Error Message - Cannot Retrieve Application List - Lexmark Printer

When i installed my lexmark x4650 printer i received a message saying "required system software not installed", microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue. I went to microsoft to download and got a message that it was already installed on my computer. Now i can't get rid of the message telling me to get the software, (it pops up every time i turn on the computer) and i can't get the printer to scan to the computer.

I get a message on the printer that it  "cannot retrieve application list". The printer prints perfectly fine, but will not scan. I just installed the printer on a new computer and everything was working fine on the old one. The only thing different is this time i am wireless.

Lexmark X4650 Printer Incompatible

I installed widows 7. Found out that one care no longer works with windows 7 installed. So, i installed security essentials. I discovered that somewhere along the way, after installing both, that my printer (a lexmark 4650) was no longer listed as a printer. So, i had to reinstall the software. Still can't get it to print. Cant get the laptop to communicate with the printer at all - usb or wireless, tried both. I've tried reinstalling 3 times now. Tried the lexmark help procedures. No good. Has anyone here had a similar issue with printers, post-windows 7 install, or post-security essentials install?

Cannot Print To Remote Lexmark Printer

I had vista home premium on my laptop from which i could print on an old lexmark x11 attached to another laptop running xp. Recently i upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot print this way. Although the 7 machine can see the printer, it says it is 'ready' and i see stuff in its print queue on my machine, after a while these items disappear without appearing on the xp machine's queue. The printer shows no activity whatsoever. I have removed the printer from my machine and reinstalled it. Still no joy. The xp machine has extra drivers loaded for "2000 and xp".

Lexmark X543 Printer Wont Print

Trying to print via wireless router attached to lexmark x543 xl printer via ethernet cable. Have run all possible diagnostics and everything appears to be working but it won't print! I have loaded the drivers etc. For my lexmark x543 xl laser printer onto my toshiba satellite laptop running windows 7 home premium in order to set up wireless printing via my bt voyager 2091 wireless adsl router.

The printer appears in the control panel, i have run a successful ping test and can log onto the lexmark device page using the printer's ip address. I have also run the troubleshooter printing diagnostic and it simply says everything is fine and it can't identify the problem. But it still won't print! I have tried the test print page function and it simply ends up in a "queue".

There is nothing wrong with the printer as i can print via a usb cable. There is nothing wrong with the ethernet cable and the ethernet display light on the router is illuminated. Any ideas? It seems to me that the problem might be in windows 7 rather than the printer hardware.

I have not been able to find the printer properties on windows 7 that will allow me to enable the bidirectional communication.

Problem With Lexmark Z43 Printer On Win 7 Pro

Trying to run lexmark z43 printer from windows 7 pro. According to ms it should load a suitable driver automatically and work. It does not. I have old xp driver available on computer (cjxp43le.exe) - latest from lexmark. When previously using vista it found and loaded a z42/43 driver that worked but i do not have this available. Where can i find this driver or can ms forward a copy to me and i will manually force windows 7 to use it. Lexmark (sweden) apparently have a z43 working with windows 7 but seem unable to specify the driver.

Lexmark Printer Won't Save Preferred Settings

I just bought a new pc with windows 7. I'm using a lexmark all-in-one x5410 printer which worked fine with windows xp. I downloaded the recommended driver from lexmark.com but they don't have a driver for windows 7 available. My problem is the settings i want won't stick. Every time i print the settings go back to the factory default. The "tech support" (hahahaha!) At lexmark was absolutely worthless. Any ideas? Do i need to just wait for a new driver to be created?

Printer Error - Printer Not Available

I upgraded to win 7 about 6 weeks ago, and everything worked fine  then all of a sudden, after i have finished printing a document and clicked the next document to print, i get an error message saying" printer error. Printer not available. " I have checked everything including troubleshooting, and everything is fine. The only way i can get my printer back (hp all-in-one c7280) is to turn the computer off and then back on and do it all over again. No i am not networking; i am the sole user. But i am wondering if somewhere i have printer sharing turned on?  If so where can i find it?

Win7 Can't Find Printer Port For Usb Printer

I have a canon pixma mp780 printer. It is a usb printer. I downloaded the latest driver, which is supposed to be specifically for windows 7. Windows installed the driver with no problems, but it is having trouble locating the printer port. I have the cable connected on both the pc and the printer. I have tried unplugging and re-plugging them both, as well as restarting the machine. The window for finding the printer port has the following message:

"Caution! Cannot detect the printer port. Check that the printer is on and that the cable is connected. If the port has not been detected even though it is connected, disconnect the cable from the printer and then reconnect it. "

I am at a loss as to what to do next. The window claims it will close once it finally detects the printer port. I have tried to plug the printer into different usb ports in hope that one of them would finally be recognized, but so far it has been to no avail. Do i need to reboot? Is there anything else i can do? I didn't have any problems when i was using windows xp, so i'm sure it is a windows 7 issue.

Installed Printer Drivers Stacked Under One Printer Icon

If 2 printer drivers for the same printers is installed, eg a postscript and a pcl driver, both printers are stacked under the one printer icon, and you only know that two separate drivers are installed if you right click on the printer icon, and only at that point does it show that two separate printer drivers have been installed. Is there a way to unstack the two printers so they show as two separately installed printers ?
