Well the primary reason for a communication problem in case of printers is either that the physical connection of the printer is not proper place... or i would recommend you to first uninstall the entire lexmark software...
And then reinstall the software from the Cd's that you recieved with the printer & just make sure that when you start installing the software at that time the printer c able should be disconnected from the system & reconnect the cable only when the software will ask you to connect in the process of reinstalling the software....

Have your printer OFF while you turn on your computer, and only after the computer comes on, then connect the printer cable. That's what I do.

My printer is not communicating with my computer. I just got a new computer and I have tried restarting my computer and unplugging the usb but nothing works. I need to know what i can do to get my printer...


as it is a new computer, have you tried uninstalling the printer software and start again. install the software as you did the very first time, this may clear any incompatible issues you may be having. remember to use the uninstall program which should in the same folder as the printer program (usually C://Program files) and then look for the lexmark folder. once you have fully uninstalled, reinstall. alternatively, insert your install disc that came with printer, select set up and you may be offered options of Modify, Repair or Uninstall.
hope this helps

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

Computer will not communicate with printer


Ckeck in control panel & se if the driver software installed. It should be listed in Add/remove programs. If it is, power up the piinter & load windows Vista update service. See if Vista has any patches for you're printer. If no, goto Lexmark & go to the driver section for you're P4350 printer software for Vista. While in Vista update, install any updates listed.

Creat a folder on you're desktop & down load the latest driver software in-to the folder you created. Uninstall any Lexmark software that might have been in add/remove programs. Install the driver software you downloaded. If all this still fails, call Lexmark since this is a new printer. The number should be in you're manul. Or you can go here for free support.

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


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.
