My lexmark x3650 will not communicate with my computer. help?

Installed cd. checked various usb ports. went through troubleshooting steps. tried another computer. installed driver.. still says no communication between devices. Which confuses me because when i insert an sd card directly into printer, the images come up on computer.

I can copy. But i can't print.

    Followed every setup step to the letter, but when I get to the final step of printing off a sample page, it says Communication Not Available - the printer and computer cannot communicate.

Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Troubleshoot scan for an x3650? I am using an ASUS laptop with windows 7. Desperately tying to scan and send payroll. It's worked previously, but not now.


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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc 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, then try to print again.

Printer cannot communicate with printercommunicate


I would suggest:

Go to Printers and Faxes and delete your printer icon
Disconnect your printer's cable (connected to your PC)
Restart your PC
Reconnect the printer's cable
Your PC should see the printer and install the printer's driver software.

Hope this helps.

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

is the printer in its own USB port? Some printers that "talk back" to the PC do not like to share a port so do not have it on a USB HUB.

1st -make sure that the USB cable is connected on the correct port of your printer - you might be plugging it on the ports of the telephone - you got 3 ports there - 2 for the telephone ports and 1 for the USB

2nd- check your service if print spooler and lx devices are started (lexbce or lxdcu) - if not.... start it
>start >run>type services.msc > enter

3rd- if still no go - uninstall your driver and download windows vista x64 printer driver on their website
