You may have to change your WI Fi password to remove the ! and change it to a number instead. If you do this, however, every phone, PC etc that uses the wifi will also have to have its password changed otherwise it wont connect as it will look for the old password.

Have you tried printing a test page from the printer (like a setup page WITHOUT using the computer)?

If the test/setup page from the pinter is in color then it is the settings or drivers on your (unnamed) computer.

In my experience you do not scan from the printer to the Mac, rather you perform scan jobs from the Mac:
you open the 'printers & scanners' on the Mac, select your printer and then on the right side of the window, click on the "scan" tab, then click on 'open scanner' and proceed.

From there you will have options (I don't have a Lexmark) for scanning, saving depending on the features of your scanner.

If you do not have the scan option, you may need to update your driver/package on your iMac.

if not used for a while the print head would have dried up.
You can try being it back to life by cleangin the heading with some nail varnish remover and cotton bud.
If this doesn’t work you will need to just buy a new cartridge.

If you have the old cartridge, put it back in the machine and see if you get the same message. If the message changes, then the problem likely has to do with the new cartridge and something being wrong with it.
