Lexmark Color error/talk help please



Do any one in here have a lexmark, or has used a lexmark printer before???

if so, then you know about the talking man. "Prinitng Started, etc." Also it had a panel where you could check the levels of ink, etc. Well I tried to install that on Windows XP, but the cd-rom that came along did not have the "Install Option" on it when using Windows Xp. The printer needed no drivers or nothing. I just plugged it in and it works. But heres the problem, I have a brand new ink cartridge in it, but everything I print comes out in a greenishblue and yello. I can print something that is black, but it comes out yello and greenish blue? How can I correct this problem, and get back the talking man and control panel(options) that came along with lexmark.

P.S, it worked great in win98se & winme


when you put in the cd, right click > explore > right click on setup.exe > properties > compatibility > Win 98/Me or 2000.. hopefully that will help..

whick lexmark? i got a z53. it came with 2 c.ds. i had the talking "ink low" etc driver + also a normal driver that showed ink leaval etc. i use the normal driver cus the guy speaking pissed me off:p



I have the Lexmark X73 printer. Mine works fine. I would suggest that you uninstall the old driver and then install the latest XP drivers for your printer model.

Don't forget Lexmark's tech help. Give them a call if all else fails.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
