Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark x5340 printer "can't communicate with computer." All hardware okay. Just bought new USB cord since printers don't come with them anymore. Have older computer 2001 Gateway, however was wondering if my USB port hubs were incompatible with the 2.0 port speeds and is even this necessary? Got a window that pops up and says I can print faster if I have a 2.0.

I had a brand new usb cord that didn't work but cost a lot of money. I went to wal-mart and bought a usb cord for like $6 that had a printer icon on the package and hooked that up and the message disappeared. I don't know if that helps but hope it does.

Can't print. Lexmark has an x by offline


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Computer does not see the printer "communication error". I have used the Lexmark diagonistic tool, have reloaded the drivers. I have disabled the firewall. Still doesn't work. Was working some of the time...


If your using USB cord try to change the USB cord of your printer because its maybe have the problem for it. But if it is also does not work just see the USB controllers at the Device Manager if their's no a problem from it. Just Right Click the My Computer, select Properties, go to Hardware, then click Device Manager and see the Universal Serial Bus Controller if they dont have any question mark (?) or apostrope (!). Because if they have any mark like that do you have a problem about your USB device. You just install the driver for that USB device to make sure that your printer will detect from the USB.

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.
