Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My "NEW" ,out of the box, Lexmark X1270 seems to be installed correctly. However, it will not print at all,,,no test page or anything.
The scanner seems to be working fine as it scans and saves.
My question is this,,,isn't the scanner/printer installed correctly if the scanner will work? The USB plug and power cord are fine if the scanner will work.
When I check, the printer is highlighted/checked and "Ready". Documents load but will not print.
One msg I received said that "the printer was busy"..!!?? Nothing was printing. Another said, "Printer not communicating with computer"
Why can the scanner function work but not the printer?
I have loaded and unloaded the program using the original disc many times. Checked firewalls and downloaded a driver.
Still not printing? I wish I had read up on the printer before purchasing it.
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
