The message "no communication between printer and computer". some times indicates that the cable you're using is faulty or the port selected is not the printer port you've connected your printer to.cheers.

My lexmark 5300 all in one gives me a "web gateway encountered a problem..." message and the printer's functions will not work.


Does your printer print when you try to make a copy using the Copy button on the printer operator panel? If yes, then it could be a printer driver problem. Try to re-install the printer driver on your computer. You can download the Lexmark X5495 driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/gKXn7F. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. After the installation is successful, try to print again.

    Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


    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

    Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


    is the printer in its own USB port? Some printers that "talk back" to the PC do not like to share a port so do not have it on a USB HUB.
