With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

My printer Dell 926 is not communicating with the computer. I have disconnected the cables both from the power and tower and restarted computer but still nothing. Everything was good yesterday???


Hi,
if you have the users manual (given that it has worked properly in the past) my suggestion would be to disconnect the printer from the computer/uninstall the current software/then with your manual in hand follow the guidance PRECISELY to reinstall the printer. If you do not have the manual it can be obtained (free) from the Dell site. Just before doing the uninstall/reinstall if you haven't already done so you might go to the Dell download site and install the latest drivers for the printer from there.

Hope this helps
Thanks
Dennis

I keep gertting this message "communication not available". I have done all the toubleshooting suggestions. The orange astrisk mark continues to blink. the cable has no kinks in it. what is my next step,...


try uninstalling all the usb hubs from the device manager and restart the computer but note that before you do that all the external devices should be unplugged. like printer , modem and anyother if there is any.
once you restart the computer automatically the hubs will get installed. also check with other usb ports.
if all this will not work then uninstall the printer driver compleately and after restarting the computer reinstall the printer driver .

My printer keeps saying cant communicate with computer have done all the things suggested and power just blinks. help


Did you try reinstalling the software -- going to the manufacturer's website and get uptodate drivers? Uplug from the PC and eplug while both are turned off? Go to Device Manager update or rollback drivers, or uninstall and reboot to see if your PC will find it? You don't list what you have tried so it is hard to help you.

Message given that computer not communicating with printer. Cable is plugged in properly, and it works with an older laptop. Tried the USB root hub suggestion above, but none were checked.


Mine seems to regularly to this. Bit of a pain, but everytime I uninstall it, then reinstall it, it works again for a while. Don't know if it's because I don't keep the printer plugged into my laptop all the time?? Try this anyway if you haven't already. Jen

Getting %BuildTemplateErrorMessage%


Help me here, please.

What is the model number of the printer you are using?

From the very limited problem description, I 'll take a SWAG at the problem. It seems to me that the Lexmark provide software is communicating through the printer that you either have a solid failure on an existing Template or a Template was not closed properly.

If you haven't done any work on a Template, then I suggest that you uninstall the printer's software and reinstall it.

Laptop not communicating with printer windows xp


Vista uses a different driver. Here is Lexmark Support Page:

Lexmark Support

Enter your printer (X1270) and it will take you to the tech support page for your printer. Click "Download Driver". Next page select Vista as your operating system. Next page select "Download Now". It's a large file...40MB.

Save it on your desktop and when the download is done, double click the icon on your desktop to install.
