  • Page 6: Chapter 1: Learning About The Printer

    Learning about the printer Identifying printers Use the following table to determine the features and options of your Lexmark™ T640, T642, or T644 printer. The illustrations aid you in determining the installation location of options attached to the printer. For more information about installing input options, see Installing and removing options or the instructions that came with the option.
  • Page 7: Configured Models

    Floor-mounted configurations require additional furniture for stability. You must use either a printer stand or printer base if you are using a 2000-sheet drawer, a duplex unit and an input option, or more than one input option. If you purchased a multifunction printer (MFP) that scans, copies, and faxes, you may need additional furniture.
  • Page 8: Paper Menu

    A number of menus are available to make it easy for you to change printer settings. The diagram shows the menu index on the operator panel and the menus and items available under each menu. For more information about menus and menu items, see the Menus and Messages book on the publications CD.
  • Page 9: Understanding The Printer Operator Panel

    Understanding the printer operator panel The operator panel on the printer is a 4-line back-lit gray scale display that can show both graphics and text. The Back, Menu, and Stop buttons are located to the left of the display, the navigation buttons are located below the display, and the numeric pad is located to the right of the display.
  • Page 10 PDF files. Note: A USB port is located on the back of the printer to connect a PC or other peripheral. The numeric pad consists of numbers, a pound '#' sign, and a backspace button. The 5 Numeric pad button has a raised bump for non-visual orientation.
  • Page 11: Chapter 2: Installing Drivers For Local Printing

    Installing drivers for local printing A local printer is a printer attached to the computer using a USB or parallel cable. The local printer is intended to be used by the computer to which it is attached. If attaching a local printer, you must install the printer driver on the computer before setting up the printer.
  • Page 12: Serial Printing

    With serial printing, data is transferred one bit at a time. Although serial printing is usually slower than parallel printing, it is the preferred option when there is a great deal of distance between the printer and computer, or when a parallel interface is not available.
  • Page 13 Before you can print, you must establish communication between the printer and computer. To do this: Set serial parameters in the printer. Install a printer driver on the attached computer. Match the serial settings in the COM port. Setting parameters in the printer Press on the operator panel.
  • Page 14: Installing A Printer Driver

    Setting parameters in the communications (COM) port After the printer driver is installed, set the serial parameters in the communications port assigned to the printer driver. The serial parameters in the communications port must exactly match the serial parameters set in the printer.

  • Page 18: Verifying The Ip Settings

    Windows Server 2003 For basic printer functionality, install a printer driver, and use a system network printer port, such as an LPR or a Standard TCP/IP port. The printer driver and port let you maintain a consistent user interface for use with all the printers on the network.
  • Page 19 If the printer port is not listed: Click Add Port. Select Lexmark Enhanced TCP/IP Port, and enter the information to create the port. Enter a port name. This can be any name to associate with the printer, such as Monochrome1-lab4. After the port is created, this name appears in the list of available ports.
