Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers
(It says X1170 on the printer) - My printer doesn't connect to the computer anymore. This problem started happening when I ran an msconfig and regedit a few days ago, and all I did in relation to the printer was stop the program from running on startup. I tried to change this option back to the way it was, but the problem is still there. When I turn on my printer, it makes a whirring sound and then the light on the power button starts flashing. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software, restarting my computer, turning off and on the printer, and disconnecting and reconnecting the USB cable. I don't know what else to do!
Unplug the printer from the wall so it can reset itself.
That should do the trick

Tips for a great answer:
A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by
resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer
from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and
re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns
on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again
once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on
the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).
If that doesn't help, try the steps below:
