Lexmark X2500 wont read on the computer (2008 HP Vista).

The computer will allow me to print but the printerwont read the computer. When I press print, the computer has a pop-up window and says that the printer is not connected. It says to reconnect the printer power cable, reconnect the AV cable from the printer to the computer, or restart the printer. I reconnected everything and restarted the printer and computer twice, but it still wont work. Can anyone please help me?

Please try reinstalling the drivers. unplug the printer from the pc, reinstall drivers. restart pc before you plug the printer back in to the pc. after restart, plug printer back in. should work. do you have the install disc for the printer? If you do, and the first fix did not work, plaug the printer into the pc. Put the install disc into disc drive. if the autoplay is running it should ask you if you want to read the files on the disc, just close this window. Then go to START-RUN(type in) DEVMGMT.MSC and find the printer option. expan and right click on the little printer and choose "UPDATE DRIVER" it will then give an option to choose from updating from a specific location or install from a specific location. choose FROM A SPECIFIC LOCATION. another window will pop up with the choice to search from removable media ie floppy, cd etc, etc. choose that option if it hasnt already. It shouls all be automatic from her on out. Good luck.

    I forgot. youcan search for the drivers from the manufacturers website. leave the printer unplugged from the pc and save the driver file(which you downloaded) to the desktop. when you plug the printer in to the pc it should automatically search and find the drivers.

The Lexmark X2500 all-in-one multifunction printericon1.png, discontinued as of May 2011, will not install on Windows Vista or Windows 7 using the installation disc. The installation disc predates the newer editions of the Windows operating system and so you will run into difficulty when trying to install the printer. Lexmark has released up to date drivers on their website. Once you have downloaded the drivers, you can install the printer and begin using the device.

If I download this driver and plug the printer into my computer into my computer will I be able to print on my Lexmark x2500 series because I can't find the disc to download it on my computer



Go to the Lexmark website and download the quickstart guide and user manual for your x2500.Read it, then you will have the answer to all your questions. You can download the driver AND other software for your printer, and after installation, your printer will be recognised by your computer. You may not even need the driver, as the later operating systems, ie. Windows XP, include drivers for most printers.

I can't cancel a "deleting" file from my lexmark que and so...i can't print anything else. what do i do?


Hi
Try pulling the power cable out of the printer for at least 1 minute. Then close computer and restart. Many printers will reset to default factory settings.
If not you may have to remove and reinstal printer driver.

Good Luck!

Lexmark x2500 err msg: UNABLE TO CONNECT

When trying to print, you get a communication error; the device is correctly detected in the Device Manager, the firewall is not blocking any files and you can scan using the All-In-One Printer.
Explanation
Any PC using the AMD USB architecture is preventing the printer from printing when connecting via USB.
What to do
Follow the specific steps for the PC manufaturer below:
Dell Studio 1536:
IMPORTANT: Do not replace any hardware, before performing the following steps:

Step Action 1 Go to Control Panel 2 Go to Programs and Features 3 Uninstall AMD USB Audio Driver Filter
Note: Uninstalling this USB audio driver doesn't cause any impact for systems with Vista Service Pack 1 installed

Acer Aspire 5530, Extensa 4130, Extensa 4430, and TravelMate 4530:
There are files available to address printing problems when connected to a USB printer or multi-function printer, for Windows Vista and Windows XP.
  • Printer did not print, print jobs will be listed with the status "error" in the task list
  • No error message appears, printer simply does not print
  • Problem only manifests when the printer is connected via USB

Please go to the Drivers and Downloads area to get the file appropriate for your operating system and unit.
