    I have downloaded that file, installed the programming and am now told I have a communications error

  • wharrison Nov 08, 2008

    Downloaded that specific file - installed and am now being told "Enable bidirectional communication"

    Anyone able to help me find location to do this?

    Thanks, A few minor adjustments to printing options and the thing seems to work.

You need the Vista driver. you can download it here:
http://search.lexmark.com/printer/US/en/21D5700

Make sure you uninstall the older version first and then install the Vista version.

    Click on Printers and Faxes and right-click on the Lexmark 5270 Printer Icon and click Properties. Click Ports. Make sure Enable bidirectional support is checked, if not , check it and click Apply, then OK.


    If the Spooler is not running, Click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services. Scroll down and look for Printer Spooler. Make sure the Startup Type is set to Automatic. and it is started.

    Try this and let me know. BTW, a Thanks For Trying rating on Fixya is negative. I hope you could change it to at least Helpful, or if my solution fixed the error, then "Fixya" rating..Much appreciated.

Problems installing printer


Hey there,
It's frustrating I know!
It doesn't work in Vista. It is only supported by Windows up to XP. I now have another PC running XP just so I can use my printer!

Here's the XP driver anyway:

http://printers.free-driver-download.com/12570/Lexmark-Printer-Photo-P3150-Driver-1.0.3.0-WinXP-Server-2003.html


Right-clicking on the driver application and clicking Properties to Enable XP Compatibility in the Compatibility tab doesn't work either, it just doesn't have support beyond XP, so you'll have to do what I did and load up XP on another machine if you want to use you printer!

Wish I had better news for you, mate!
Good Luck

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.
