    My laptop with Windows Vista operating system will not print to my Lexmark P6250 printer. Keeps telling me 'problem communicating with the printer'. Installed the driver with no problem . I've tried everything , unplugged the printer when I was supposed to and plugged it back in. Any suggestions.

    My laptop with Windows Vista will not print to my Lexmark P6250 printer. I installed the driver with no problem and it shows the printer but it keeps saying 'problem communicating with the printer'. The printer is connected to my desktop.

    P6250 sometimes don't kommunicate with Vista 64bit.
    Sometimes the printer prints one order an stopps than by 99%. After restarting computer the printer prints the next order but no further orders.
    I think the win vista 64bit driver doesn't work properly!

Normal 0 Do this

Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the the downloaded software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.

  1. Go to the Lexmark Find Drivers/Product Selector page.
  2. Enter Lexmark P6250 under "Search by Model", and click the Search button.
  3. Select your OS from the dropdown (Vista).
  4. Click Download Now.
  5. If you're asked to Save or Run, choose to Run (it keeps you from having to go find the file and double-click it later).

Lost installation disk


Download the driver package that suits your operating system (XP, Vista, 2000) from Lexmark. You will find the files here:

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:462:0:0

For future reference, entering just p6250 brought up nothing at Lexmark's support site. Enter Lexmark p6250 & it goes right to support for your printer.

From the Lexmark Site:
Attention Windows Vista Users: Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

I found the drivers by going to My Computer > OS (C:) > Drivers > Printer > deleted the file folder.
I then unpluged the printer, reinstalled the driver from the Lexmark Site (http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi#), restarted and it worked.
Good luck.
