Re: Will not communicate
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

Use Vista Driver in Windows 7. Check your operating system if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit. On your computer, go to Start menu > right-click on Computer > Properties. Take note of the System Type.
Use the link below to download and install the Lexmark P6250 Printer Driver:
- Lexmark P6250 Driver for Vista 32-bit
- Lexmark P6250 Driver for Vista 64-bit
Please follow the instructions on your computer screen.
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.
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.
