Please do not post threads in block capitals, this really puts people off helping. Have you checked your lexmark manual?

Try,
Open control panel and select printers in the "hardware and sound" Select your printer.

Right-click the printer in question in the window that opens and select
"properties"
Then click the "ports" tab at the top and in the window untick/deselect the
"enable bidirectional support" checkbox at the bottom.
