Question about Lexmark Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Printer doesn't connect to computer (or computer doesn't connect)

(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

Can't print. Lexmark has an x by offline


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:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have a Epson stylus DX4450, and the scanner doesn't read anymore. Is it possible to reset it?


Try disconnecting the power supply from the electrical outlet and the usb connection to the computer for 10 full minutes and then reconnect both. This usually works.

Communication error


For communication error problem - try with reinstalling the driver and the utilities that came with the printer from Add/Remove Programs. Make sure the printer doesn't show up in 'Control Panel->Printers and Faxes' anymore. If it's still there, delete it.

Now, disconnect the printer and start installing the software. There are certain printer drivers that must be installed with the printer disconnected. The install program asks you to connect the printer to the computer when the time is right.
