First, install the most recent drivers for your operating system:
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:281:0:0

If that doesn't work, then uninstall the printer.  Shut down your pc, unhook your printer from your pc.  Turn off the printer and remove the power cord.  Turn your pc back on.  Download and run CCleaner (www.ccleaner.com), both it's cleanup program and registry cleaner.  Reboot.

Re-install your Z11 (following your original manufacturer's installation instructions).

Try michko's advice.

It could be that printer has failed.  That's an older, inexpensive inkjet printer.  Interface board may be flaky and it's not worth replacing (cost more than new printer).

Thanks.

So, did my advice solve it, or had the printer itself failed?  Just curious.
