If you have an XP OS, click START Menu then click "Printers and Faxes". A window will open with a list of printers installed in your computer. Right Click the printer icon for your 8300 printer then select properties. Go to "Ports" Tab, you will see the check box for "Enable bidirectional support".

Have you talked with Lexmark Technical Support? I suspect you may have to escalate this beyond level one. Vista on Mac is likely to have issues that differ from other Vista environments.

Lexmark X8350 "communication not available"


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.

Hey guys,, Well you can try this and this will help(by all means it should)

METHOD 1
restore your system to a previous date (one before you installed the printer off the xp cd)
Install the driver's using the windows vista drivers..

METHOD 2(RECOMMENDED BUT MORE DIFFICULT)
THE FIRST THING IS TO REMOVE THE OLD DRIVERS

ensure your printer is connected to your computer and the power is on

step 1.) click start / right click computer and select properties
2.) click device manager

or START / Controll panel
Click Classic View the device manager

3.) Click View then show hidden devices

4.) right click on the printer and click uninstall

5.) Unplug your printer usb from your computer

6.) RESTART

7.) INSTALL THE PRINTER WITH THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU DOWNLOADED..

ps REMEMBER NOT TO PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER UNTIL THE SETUP SOFTWARE TELLS YOU TO DO SO

BTW IF YOU CONT HAVE THE VISTA DRIVERS YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THE MANUFACTURES WEB SITE

let me know if you got any problems ..
