It said I had enough ink for 11 more copies before I uninstalled it now it wont let me install it at all .
Trip to the repair shop I think but do I need take my computter as well as my printer I wonder ?????
Then they can try re install it on computter for me .

Ow I hate technoligy especially when it wont work.

Possibly the problem. Make sure all doors and trays are shut properly.

Must be an anorak out there somewhere who is a printer buff who can help Maggie ?

It does sound to me like a paper jam! Try putting your hand up inside were the paper goes in, sometimes a sheet gets drawn in to print.....but it does'nt print, instead the paper stops halfway round the print head and stops...So stick your fingers up!

Hello Maggie,

Generally if the light is flashing and continues to flash when you re-boot, it means it is out of ink but there could be various reasons. If the carriage is stuck, it will also flash. If you still have your driver disk, try going into device manager and uninstalling the printer, it will probably be under USB devices near the bottom of the list. After uninstalling, shut down your PC and unplug the printer from the PC. Re-boot, insert disk, let it instal the drivers and then plug in printer when prompted on screen. You may have to re-boot again to complete installation. I obviously cannot guarantee this will work but without seeing it, it's hard for me to make a diagnosis.

Unfortunately, Lexmark are not the most reliable although they do have some high end all-ins that work well. I always advise my customers to replace with Epson, as they are not only very reliable (in my experience) but the compatible cartridges are much cheaper, ie, 67p for any colour. I have never had a compatible cartridge fail yet.

For anybody reading this post, I sort out PC and laptop problems in the Side area free of charge but please feel free to mail me if you have a problem.

Let me know how you get on Maggie and try to give me a bit more info.

Cheers
