Customer Questions & Answers

  • Has this unit set up for wi-fi

    Unfortunately, this printer has no wireless capabilities as standard. However, you can use the Lexmark MarkNet N8352 802.11b/G/N Wireless Print Server Kit in order to enable wireless printing.

    On 10/09/2017 17:23:37
  • (a) Is it possible to attach a label printer to this printer? I send a lot of post and would like a label printer. (b) I have wireless internet. Would I be able to use this printer?

    The Lexmark MS312 will allow you to print labels and envelopes through its own paper trays. In order to connect the printer to your wireless network you would need to purchase the Lexmark MS312dnw which adds a wireless adapter.

    On 22/07/2017 12:22:54
  • Does this model print in colour?

    Unfortunately, this model cannot print in colour.

    On 20/07/2017 10:52:31
  • Hello, Does this printer print on A6, A5? I am guessing through the manual tray? Thanks

    Yes, the MS312 will print and both A5 and A6 media

    On 15/07/2017 13:19:52
  • Does this printer have the cables supplied for parallel port connection. If not do you have them in stock

    Connecting cables are not supplied in the box unless otherwise stated. You can purchase the relevant cables when prompted during the checkout process

    On 12/06/2017 14:26:10
  • does the multi-function tray on this printer support the use of labels, envelopes etc.

    The 50-sheet Multi-function Feeder on this model can handle media from 16 - 43 lb. It can handle special media including Card Stock, Envelopes, Paper Labels, Plain Paper and Transparencies.

    On 18/04/2017 16:58:09
  • Hi there Does this printer have a separate automatic document feeder?

    Unfortunately the Lexmark MS312dn (35S0082) does not have an ADF as this printer is not a multiplication printer.

    Cheap and unreliable mono printer

    I have had this printer several months now, and cannot recommend it, even with the 'four year warranty'. The print is what you'd expect for a cheap mono laser printer, however the design of the device leads it to jam regularly, and it seems to be very clunky when printing. The printer also cannot recognise when it has been reloaded with paper in its tray. Avoid.

    Excellent mono printer

    I bought this model 8 months ago and am now buying a second one, this time for my daughter. It prints only in black but it has automatic double sided printing and is very fast. The ink/toner cartridge it came with needed replacing only last week after regular home use. I've not had any problems with the first one I bought but both have the 4 year warranty which gives some confidence in the product. Cheap to buy with a long lasting ink cartridge - a winner.

    First printer

    Lexmark Print Service plugin doesn't work and the price of Wi-fi extra adapter for this printer is very expensive

    Lexmark MS312dn

    As a direct replacement for another Brand Leader “O” not more than a couple of years old the difference between the two is incomparable. The weight alone confirms the quality of build and believe me the Lexmark MS312dn does not disappoint, network setup complete in minutes. Using the printer is a dream simple control panel to set language, date time and its up and working it’s just that simple. Printing label so simple from manual feed tray that holds up to 50 pages no more feeding one page at a time. It’s so quick, and look for some additional functionality only normally seen on larger much more expensive machines and it’s all there waiting to be explored. It even has a web interface so I can remotely change any of the printer’s settings. Brilliant, Brilliant, Lexmark.

    New Laser Printer - SPOT ON ... Thank You

    Really impressed with the whole service from the phone call, the advice about which printer would be suitable right through to the day after delivery. Great service, great prices and really great quality of products too. Will be recommending you to

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.

Please note. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the above information is correct at the time of publication, Printerland will not be held responsible for the content of any third-party software suggested on this site and usage of any such software is at the users own risk.
