Megan-
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 :)

I recently purchased a Lenovo All in One wireless computer. I've plugged in the USB cable as per instructions but my X4650 printer will still not print.


Have you installed the printer drivers? Is the printer power turned on before plugging the USB cable into the computer? You could have a bad cable. Try a different cable.

Cant scan on my lexmark x4690 it does print


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.

My printer and pc have stopped communicating. The message on my computer tells me to choose a printer. I click on the Lexmark and it says ready but there is no location and I can't click on anything else.


What is the operating system of your computer? How is the printer connected to your computer, wireless or hardwired via the USB cable? Make sure the print spooler of your computer is enabled.

Wireless printer communication unavailable via USB


Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

Problem with wireless lexmark printer x4690


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
