Lexmark x1185 will not communicate, help

did you try all of the basic? shut down both the computer and printer and turn them on again, check cable connectivity and make sure everything is connected the way it should.

also, do you have any light on the printer?

next I would try to check if the printer is installed properly. I would reinstall the drivers anyhow, no matter if you see it is installed. of course you need to make sure that you have unistalled the old driver. after installation restart and check again

Need connection cables

visit any computer local store and ask for a usb printer cable and a power ac adapter to turn on the printer.

After that you would be needing a driver software to use the printer with your computer, Download it from this weblink

Problems getting windows vista to see my lexmark x1185 .

  1. Temporarily unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and then plug it back in.
  2. If necessary, turn the printer back on. It should make a resetting sound.
  3. Check that the print cartridge has been snapped into place.
  4. Make sure the printer is directly connected to the USB port on the PC.
  5. If another peripheral device is connected, remove it and connect the printer directly.
