Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I keep getting a message that my computer is not communicating with my printer. Somethign about the usb port?
I have been using the printer for almost a year, and this never happened begore.
It sounds to me as though the USB port simply got reset and so it isn't communicating both ways (this can sometimes happen if you plug in or unplug a difference device in a nearby USB port). Here is my advice:
1) Try disconnecting the USB cable from your computer, wait 10 seconds, and then plug it back in.
2) If you still get the same error messagem then the problem is software-related, not hardware-related. You might try uninstalling and re-installing the driver for the printer. In the event that you don't have the disk from your printer handy, you can download the driver from the following web address:
If you still receive an error message, try to get the exact wording that we can figure out what's causing it.
I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
