Lexmark P915 Printer problems

  allassio 00:10 27 May 2006

I was given this machine as a gift and since I connected it to my Powermac G3, it has caused two problems.
1) as long as the printer power cord id connected, it won't allow me to shut down the Mac. If I do, it instantly restarts!
Pulling the plug before going for shutdown removes the problem
2) when I print a page, the page prints perfectly - but the print job never appears to complete (even though I've got the required document in my hand).
The 'print manager' dialogue box shows the pages as 'job in progress' and seems to hang there until I delete the job manually.
Anybody else had these problems with a Lexmark Printer.
Love to know how to fix it because Lexmark support don't seem to have the answers.

johnnyrocker, that's unkind. But I have to say I agree with you.

allassio, you will also find that you will have to pay a fortune to replace the ink cartridges as and when they run out.
