Lexmark 7100 printer keeps reinstalling when plugged in

Q: Lexmark 7100 printer keeps reinstalling when plugged in

Friend's XP laptop I upgraded to Win7 here in Germany has a Lexmark X7170 printer which installed fine using its software package (he wants to scan). But the problem is he only wants to plug it in when he uses it, and every time he plugs it in now it tries to reinstall the drivers, making a new copy of the printer in Devices and Printers instead of recognizing the one already installed and set to default.

I have tried turning off Auto Device Installation but that only affects going to Windows Update, so it still scans the PC for drivers to install for a new Copy of the printer every time its plugged in, and for some reason doesn't find the needed drivers in their folder.

Is there a way to resolve this. It is using a Vista software package for this older printer, but it prints and scans fine if we can resolve this issue not present when he had XP.

I'm pretty sure its buggy software. The only version of the 7100 software I could get to work is the English version. Now when I try to delete the only listing in Devices and Printers it gives an Access Denied. I'm going to try reinstalling in recommended Compat Mode.

Preferred Solution: Lexmark 7100 printer keeps reinstalling when plugged in

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Lexmark 7100 printer keeps reinstalling when plugged in

Check if there are any Lexmark Services that aren't running before the printer is plugged in.
If there are, start the Service(s) before plugging in the printer and see if that helps.

I only use the controls on the printer due to many problems that Lexmark could not solve. I want to delete or edit a speed dial number. The manual does not discuss deleting nor editing but only how to insert a phone number.
How would I delete or edit using only the printer?

Hi there @jerrysgirl777?Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, both from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you cannot get your Lexmark printer to print after upgrading to Windows 10. I am happy to help with this. If there is a driver for your printer for Windows 8.1, then you could try that, otherwise I would recommend that you contact Lexmark support. It is possible that  they have a workaround that would allow you to print for not until a full service driver becomes available. Lexmark X8350 - support.lexmark.com

Hello. The problem is my associate has a Lexmark Z12 printer and Win ME / Windows Me computer. Unfortunately one day a guest @ it's house tried printing something and the computer responded with the message along the lines of "unable to communicate with printer." I went over to associate's house to attempt trouble shoot. I checked the cables, ports (hardware) and the software ports (best of my ability). It couldn't have been the drivers because no one messes around with this machine. So what the hell is going on?

I am in the process of obtaining the newest driver files and contacting Lexmark.com and will await their response as well.

Can anybody help?

Thank you.

Hi There!

I'm using a Lexmark x1165 printer connected directly to a Dell Dimension 4600 running XP Home SP2.

All of a sudden I get this message: Printer Cannot Communicate With The Computer.

I've checked the print spooler, the usb cable, the device manager, powered up and down the printer, and all the other things that are normally suggested, but I just can't get this thing to work. It shows up in Printers & Faxes but won't print a test page.

Any thoughts?
 

A:Lexmark Printer, Error Message: "Printer Cannot Communicate With The Computer"

When checking device manager,usb controllers,you probably should see some kind of entry for usb print support or some such wording,also you might wnat to check the entries that you find in the usb section,just to make sure there are no yellow exclam marks and that all appears to be ,according to the system,functioning properly.
Sometimes,just unplugging the printer from the wall socket does magic.If you have another usb socket that you could use ,try that.

As perhaps a last resort,uninstall/re-install the printer and see if XP will plug/play it back into the world of the living.Do you have any other usb devices that appear to be functioning properly?
In addition to this,you might want to check the lexmark site for a more current driver.

I wish I didn't but I do have a Lexmark printer. Currently it says "Paper Jam" which there is not. Have tried everything including Uninstall and reinstall, pulled all the plugs and replugged, and everything else known to mankind. It still says Paper Jam. My thinking is the computer is not talking to the printer. I have windows I think 8

I have a samsung printer that i use for printing anything from the computer and only use the lexmark if I want to print a surface copy. It worked fine for sometime until just recently when Paper Jam appeared in the window.

Needless to say when you consider the cost of print cartridges for the Lexmark it is a very poor product. Hopefully some one out there has the simple answer to correct this problem before I decide to drop it in the lake.

I purchased the Lexmark X83 Printer/Scanner/Copier about two weeks ago. Installed the software that came with the printer (said on the box that it was XP compatible) didn't have any problems for the first week, everything was working great and printing was fine. The beginning of last week I tried to print something and the printer properties (for the lexmark) came up and froze. Wouldn't print. Couldn't even get it to go away using the CTRL+ALT+DELETE option. I had to restart to get it to go away. I uninstalled the printer, using the uninstall cleaner provided from Lexmark.com and downloaded the install file from their website and installed the software that way. Same problem. Can't figure it out to save my life. I'm getting a connection to the printer from my computer, I can pull up the printer properties and print a test page, but just can't print anything else. I emailed Lexmark Tech Support and no response and there isn't anything on their site that I could find to help me. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Have you installed the latest drivers from Lexmark? According to its site, the latest drivers for your printer model came out in April 2002. If you haven't, I would suggest trying that first, before doing anything else. Be sure to uninstall the old drivers before installing the new ones.

When a Lex driver goes, like all printers, it's a right pain to sort out. You have to delete all files 1st to reinstall. This is what I do to rectify it:
Unplug printer, go into control Panel and delete printer icons, delete Lexmark via add/remove, 'search' for any remaining Lexmark files and delete, type in regedit in RUN and navigate HKEYS_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software and delete Lexmark folder (you can backup registry 1st by 'exporting' (just in case), then reboot, then reinstall software/driver, then plug in printer and install.

Good printer but bit slow printing recent problem when I printout the printout is good but it prints an extra page with Filename,author,keywords,creation date etc,etc,etc.How do I stop this?

A:Lexmark Zii Printer

This is from having the first page spilling into the second one. When there is too many lines on one page it opens a second page that will print. The onlyu way to stop this is to open the document back up in what ever program that it was created in or will work in and go to the end of the page and remove the extra lines that are not needed even if it means re-formatting the page a bit. You can check this out by using print preview while in the program that is fixing it, when fixed the preview will show only one page then you will be safe to print.

you might try reloading the drivers. Unistall everything listed inthe add/remove programs list that has to do with the lexmark printer. Go to your printers and delete the printer. then check your Device manager if it is listed there remove it. Power off. Disconnect the printer from the computer. Install the software again but wiat until the software tells you to connect teh printer before doing so. Lexmarks are really picky about this. As are some other printers.

Hey ya'll ~ I could sure use some help.....everytime I try to print, the printer locks up and a window pops up and says there is a paper jam, but it's not really a paper jam, the stupid thing just stops. The Lexmark site doesn't really help. I tried all their fixes and none of them changed the problem. If anyone's had a similar problem, I'd really appreciate knowing how or if it got fixed. Thanks a million!

Addenda....The OS on this computer is Windows 2000, and it won't let me change the print prefs to "print diretly to printer." Oh yeah, and I've blown every speck of dust out of the printer.
 

A:Lexmark Z55 printer problem

Try this, i had the same problem. go to start, settings, control panel, add/delete programs. then hightlight lexmark z55 series printer and remove the program. then simply reinstall from your software (im assuming you still have it) and follow the install wizard prompts.
