Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Connect USB Port will not close.

This happened when I was installing the CD that came with my printer. It said to plug the USB cable into the printer and computer and then click ok. I clicked ok but the little Connect USB Port window will not close. I tried to use my printer anyway but could not get it to scan a picture to my computer. Any suggestions?

I've seen is having too many devices plugged into USB ports cause this problem. If the software was installed properly, remove non-needed USB devices and re-boot the computer. If the printer works, look into purchasing a "POWERED" USB hub. They cost between $5-$25

Hi lesstravelro...
No, the printer does not connect to the ethernet port.

Before you hook your printer to your laptop besure to run any softwear that came with the printer.
I would also recommend that you go to the Manufacturer's website for updated drivers for your printer.
Your printer will have a printer port or usb port on the side/back of the printer to plug the printer cable into the printer.
You will plug the other end of the printer cable into a usb port on your laptop.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

How to connect to a laptop


Lexmark is one of the most popular printer manufacturers, and the installation process is fairly straightforward no matter what computer brand you have. Lexmark, however, doesn't always include all of the equipment required to hook up the printer. If you want to hook up your Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop, you will probably need to purchase a printer USB cable.

1.Plug your Lexmark printer into the power outlet.
2.Turn on your laptop, or make sure all software programs are closed if your computer is already on.
3.Insert your installation disk into your Gateway laptop's CD or DVD drive. Wait for the "Welcome" screen to appear. If it doesn't appear after a minute, launch the installation CD manually by going to your start menu and clicking on "Run." In the "Run" field, type: D:\setup.exe
4.Press the "Install" button on your "Welcome" screen to go on to the "Introduction" screen.
5.Press "Continue" on the "Introduction screen" and press "Continue" again on the "Read Me" screen. Agree to the license agreement and follow any additional installation prompts.
6.Connect the Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop when prompted. Plug the USB cable to the back of the Lexmark printer in the "Quick Connect Laptop Port." Then plug the other end of the USB to your Gateway laptop.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

How does the 3010cn connect to my cpu? I dont have any cables and no port except for a usb port


The Dell 3010cn will connect fine with a standard USB cable to the port on your cpu. Just connect the USB cable up, connect the power cable to a socket and run the installation from the software cd.

HI,

Is this the first time you connect your printer on that computer? This can be the USB port does not support a 2.0, or your data cable/printer cable is damage.

How to install Canon faxphone L75 without a set up CD? I download the driver. The printer won't set up without a CD


Hi ...

Visit the below link to download the drivers for your L75..

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=241&modelid=8721#DownloadDetailAct

Before You Begin the Installation: white_square.gif Do Not Connect.
Do not connect the USB cable to the port on your computer at this time. When you begin the installation of the software, the installation program will prompt you when it is appropriate to connect the printer to your computer. white_square.gif Cancel new hardware detection.
As a reminder: If your system displays a found new hardware dialog box, click Cancel, and then disconnect the USB cable from the port on your computer. white_square.gif Turn on your computer. Start Windows.
If you have not already done so, turn on your computer and start windows. white_square.gif Close all applications.
If any Windows applications (including any virus checkers) are open, close the applications. With the applications closed, you must ensure that the software installs properly.

If your current printer purchase is replacing a MultiPASS printer, you must remove the MultiPASS software installed on your system before installing the new printer. For instructions on removing the MultiPASS software, see the software user's guide that came with your MultiPASS software.
