Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Is my lexmark 5470 compatable to my va10 all in one computer?

I have a brand new sony VA10 all in one computer. I have a westell modem withh ethernet. I did everything that the instructions from the lexmark told me to do but when it get to the part where it says do you want to connec to your computer there where the problem is. Do i need another telephone connection since the lexmark 5470 has a fax or what? I am thinking about getting some other kind of printer. I have been working with this one for 12 hours straight with no results. I bought it in 2005. My VA10 computer is a 2008, I just got it. The printer has never been used. Cannot connect.

I am not sure what OS your new laptop is running, but I will assume it is Windows Vista if you purchased it in 2008. considering your printer is from 2005, you are not going to have Vista support on the software CD that came with the printer. The first thing you need to do is make sure you download the Vista level software for the device from the following location:

http://downloads.lexmark.com:80/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?os_used=Windows%20Vista&mode=OS&ccs=229:1:0:549:0:0

Once you have this downloaded, run the Lexmark Uninstaller and install everything you have already tried to install and then reboot. Once you have rebooted the laptop, then install the new downloaded software and follow any instructions.


As far as another telephone connection, you should run your phone line into the device and most of these all-in-one devices have a line out to run another telephone line to the phone or modem.

    Laptop or stand alone PC, it does not matter. You will still need the Window Vista version of the software that you can download from the link I mentioned. You need to uninstall all of the current Lexmark software, reboot, and then install the new Vista level software that was linked in my previous post.

How do I resume my screen on VA10 desktop


It sounds like it is locking up when going to sleep. You can try disabling the sleep option in the power section of the control panel. Does the display work at all (such as when you first boot up)?
It is also possible the video card (whether on board or add on) may be bad.

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.

Lost my cd to install lexmark 5470 need to download to install my printer


Hi you can download the lexmark software from

www.lexmark.com When you open the page, look at the right side where it says drivers and downloads. Click on it and then select driver finder from the list.

On the driver finder page enter your 5470 model into the search field, is it X5470? well try x5470 or 5470 if it says just 5470.

Anyway all the lexmark drivers are there you just need to find your printer from there, then select your windows version and download. Finaly install the software and happy printing.
