Hi,

I´ll try to give you a hand.

I think you should check some things in your operative sistem and PC configuration, here they go below:

1) The cable is in bad conditions.

2) Turn "on" the printer.

3) Type of connection; ¿USB or Printer port? ¡Check the connection and its fuctionability!

4) Drivers (controllers) that you are using. ¿Are the original and or functional ones? Go to Control panel>Sistem>Hardware tab>Administration of dispositives ("administrador de dispositivos" in spanish, sorry! -is the first tab in the dialog box.) Once there check the ports and or the controlers; if there´s an exclamation sign click over it and see what it says, you can run the automatic search of controllers made by the OS or you can choose them manually. However this, I recommend you install directly from the manufacturer, the ones compatible with your OS (Windows, Mac, Linux, whatever...)

5) Contact the vendor, by the way you should provide more data -like the OS you have, the name of the product, drivers version, type of connection.

Hope this helps.

Greetings,

SSA.

My Lexmark Z1420 Is not communicating with the P.C. Have checked everything and it tells me it cannot communicate with printer. The printer works with other P.C.


If its a Windows PC, you need to unplug the printer, Boot the computer in the Safe Mode, and remove the drivers (with the Device Manager). You might find duplicates. Remove them all.
Then reboot and install the drivers again, following the directions on the driver installer. Windows needs these extra steps.

Printer wont install have no disk


Hi,

If you do not have the installation disk, you can download the software from manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select the operating system of your computer (Windows XP/ Vista..) from the drop-down menu (See attached image).

Then download and install the required drivers and software.

The list of available software and drivers will load only after selecting the operating system of the computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Exact same thing.


if it doesn't see the printer at all , and you know that driver its suitable ..and used it before...try to manually install it from the add new hardware wizard or from device manager by right clicking and choosing update driver ...It will start the installation wizard and if you previously load the driver(install it) ..let it find it automatic..but if all is OK and it shows communications errors..than is a matter of operating system and you better reinstall the windows...

Lexmark x85 all-in-one inkjet printer not working with vista


hi jjzee,

it seems that there is no available driver that you can used for windows vista.

if you want, you can try to download the driver in this link http://driverscollection.com/?H=X85&By=Lexmark and hopefully you would be able to install it.

but if still there's no luck, better call lexmark and ask if they have driver for your printer that will work with windows vista.

have a great day ahead.

Lexmark 1240...


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.
Click on the link provided.

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.
