New Display Resolution - Solved

I have installed a new Benq GW2280E display on my MX 11 (fully up to date) system, which ideally needs a resolution of 1920x1018, or at least an equivalent aspect ratio. The best my system currently offers me is 1024x768 which although useable is far from ideal. Please, is there a download avalable ...

Re: Lexmark Printer Network connection

The good news is that the printer now prints just fine from my MX-16 machine. The problem cleared after I widened the IP addresses permitted beyond what seemed necessary for the printer - ot too sure why this changed anything. The bad news is that Win 10 gets "Error" signal on trying to print to thi...

Re: Lexmark Printer Network connection

Currently the printer itsel fnow needs setting up again, following a power outage.
So I'll re-visit this thread once that is sorted.
Meanwhile, thank you.

Re: Lexmark Printer Network connection

Thank you.
I have done exactly what you suggested, and verified the Host line is correct, but when I try to print a test page I still get the message "printer may not be connected". This is after the MX-16 had found the printer.

Lexmark Printer Network connection

I am trying to get a Lexmark X543 all-in-one printer to print from my MX-16 machine, so far without any success: 1. I have the printer working OK on the network from a Win 10 machine, suggesting that the network connection and the printer itself are both OK. 2. The MX system looks for the printer on...

Re: MX Can't see video camera.

I took up m_pav's suggestion, and could see no difference in the display whether the video capture device was pluged in or not. This suggests to me that either it's not working, or it's not seen. Rather than waste everyone's time, I am expecting a replacement new device in the next couple of days; w...

MX Can't see video camera.

I have a Panasonic NV-GS27 video camera, which records on digital tapes. On the old WinXP I had no trouble uploading videos. But now I'm MX-fied I cannot upload either to file or to editing programs. The camera has a jack to which the supplied cable is connected, this cable terminated in 3xRCA conne...
