Question about Printers & Copiers
SOURCE: Lexmark X 1270 Can not Print
I may be a bit late with this but it worked for me. Uninstall your antivirus, remove any parental controls and disable your firewall. Then, reinstall the printer and download a 2008 version of your anti virus and re-enable your firewall. I haven't reactivated the parental controls just in case it all goes pear shaped.

I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

The scanner function is not available when you are connected wireless, you must be connected via USB to your PC for the scanner to function correctly.

I have seen that in most of the cases (with lexmark and dell printers) it is fixed by reinstalling the printer software. Be sure that you completely remove the older drivers using the cd or using add/remove programs.

I have tried to set up this wireless printer on my laptop (windows vista basic). I run through installation and get message - installation complete and the green indicator light is fully on. When I try and print I get message Printer cannot communicate with computer - please turn on 'Enable Biodirectional Communication' in printer properties. I go to control panel/printer/propertie/ports/ and I see Enable Biodirectional communication - the box is grayed out and I cannot enable it. Any suggestions?

Tips for a great answer:
communication issues could be due to wireless signal quality, signal
interference, firewall, etc. Make sure your printer is positioned where it
receives excellent wireless signal strength (avoid physical obstructions
whenever possible) and away from appliances which emit wireless signals (e.g.
microwave ovens, cordless telephones, baby monitors, and other wireless
electronics) that may cause interference. Make sure to allow full
access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program
rules/permissions for your firewall.
