Question about Lexmark X1240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark X1240 will not communicate with my laptop computers.

I recently installed the Lexmark X1240 software on my Acer & Compaq laptop computers. The software installed successfully. I restarted both computers & tried to print a document, but I received the message "printer is not communicating with the computer". I have unplugged & plugged the printer, uninstalled & re-installed the software, & unplugged & plugged the USB cable to the computers & printer, but still receive the"communication" message. Are Lexmark all-in-one printers compatible with laptop comupters?

Lexmak x1240 all in one will not communicate with computer


Hi, I am writing you regarding your problem with the printer.

If the printer is still not printing, try first replacing the usb cable, and try a different USB port.


If still no luck , then you will probably need to reinstall the driver software, either from CD , or downloading the file from Lexmark website.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Always start printer setup with printer unplugged, and chose printer as default during install.

Printer not communicating with pc


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 sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue
