Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a lexmark 6180 that will not scan

The all in one will copy, but it does not seem to be communicating with my laptop. I have down loaded the new driver software for Vista, but it didn't seem to fix it.

    The problem here is that the drivers for upgrading the Lexmarks to Vista, are only partial drivers. I have the same exact problem. Honestly, the only solution is to buy a new printer that is compatible with Vista straight out of the box.

I have the same exact problem. The problem here is if you read the Lexmark website carefully, these drivers are only partial drivers, and you can not scan with these drivers installed. The website tells you to use windows fax and cameras for this purpose. The best solution is what I did, return that Lexmark, and buy another brand that is compatible with Vista straight out of the box. The 6100 series of Lexmark is an older series that was made for XP. I hope this is helpful. I know it's frustrating, but it's not our fault that Bill Gates made sure nothing is compatible with Vista, it's not just printers but cameras, camcorders, you name it.

Keeps telling me to enable bidirectional communication


Hi:

When you first loaded the print driver there should have been a box to check to enable bidirectional communication. Most Lexmark printers require this to work properly

Won't scan


Hi. The problem can be caused by a firewall blocking the communication. Try to configure your firewall to allow all lexmark communications to go through. Also, check if scan software FineReader Sprint is still working fine. Otherwise, you have reinstall the software. Hope this helps.

Lexmark X6150 Inkjet - Problems Communicating with Printer


For scanning - use window drivers, try under window Photo Gallery. Works fine. For printing, the problem is when it tries to "delete" a file it prints it fails. Can not figure this one out.

Lexmark 1270 scans but will not print


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 sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue

Lexmark X1185 won't scan.


I believe you have to push the scan button in order for it to scan and save. The copy buttons will only print either a black copy or a color copy.
