Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

8 Answers

Lexmark x1270 I bought a lexmark x1270 and tried to install it in my windows vista and it won't work. I downloaded the vista version from the Lexmark web page and it doesn't work. The computer always tells me windows failed. A window opens and says that windows failed and it shuts down the program to install the printer before all the installation is complete.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected

Important - Delete old installs

Re: lexmark x1270

I couldn't uninstall any 1270 stuff..I couldn't find it on my pc to uninstall either. Until I went to lexmark site and downloaded driver for 1250. While I was downloading driver..uninstall old version? came up and I did {finally}. I did have to turn off my firewall protection. I did get pc to recognize driver and printer. It worked but still had some problems with trying to set preferences and now my ink was dried up. Printer printed blanks. I read that these cartridges are know for drying up very quickly. So instead of buying a new set of ink, I paid the extra 40.00 and bought a new epson all in one printer for 89.00 and it took 1 hr. to get running. I think most problems with 1270 develope because when they came out , windows was in between XP and Vista. Go to a Best Buy and you find {1} lexmark printer for sale and some bad reviews from salespeople. I spent hours and hours trying to get the lexmark printer to work right {plenty of online research} and then within 2 hours, I am up and running with different make and technically updated model. Well worth the 40-50 bucks.

Re: lexmark x1270

Download the vista drivers and keep in a folder.Plug the printer in and let vista install,it will ask to install drivers,allow this.It will then say it cant find or install the drivers.Close all windows,now go to device manager,find the printer and right click and update driver manually selecting the file with the vista drivers.This worked for me,but i still cant install the all in one feature,but the printer works.
