I will be the person helping you today.
I can see that you may need a little bit of extra help.
May I ask if you still need help with this problem? If so, may I start a screen sharing session on your computer and help you resolve the problem?
Once the remote session begins, we will be able to communicate via a chat window on your computer.
Thank you for the update. When you are at the computer and ready to begin, please post a message here.
Its entirely possible that if you removed the printer driver from the devices and printers window, and reinstall the printer. That you could get this working again. Of course you would want to reinstall the printer from the lexmark page here, and not from the cd.
Thats the software that the printer uses to communicate with the computer. It was released january 2016 so if you havent installed that newest version of the software, its worth trying to help you avoid the cost of a new printer.
Also, theres a firmware update which is for the internal software inside the printer. Thats worth updating too~ you can download it here. http://support.lexmark.com/index?docLocale=en_US&page=content&segType=firmwareSegmentOS&id=DR21436&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US
Both of these steps will help the machine run better and quite possibly will fix the issue. if you would like, I could connect and do these steps for you. Even a low cost replacement for that printer will cost you 150$ and up for a comparable network ready mono laser printer. Such as this one http://amzn.to/1PnJsym
So if youd like to try and fix this, either try following the steps above and I will assist you, or let me know you would like me to connect and work on solving the problem for you on screen.
