Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers
Did you just plug the printer in, or did you go through the installation process first? Many printers (and I believe Lexmark is one) require that you install the software *before* hooking up the printer.
If you're not sure, delete the printer from your Windows printers folder, then disconnect the printer. Get your original software CD out, and reinstall the Lexmark package and drivers.
After the installation is finished, you should be prompted to "plug in your printer now". At that point, you should be good to go.
Hope this helps - please remember to rate my answer :)

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB-connected). Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB-connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.
