SOURCE: Lexmark X 1270 Can not Print

I may be a bit late with this but it worked for me. Uninstall your antivirus, remove any parental controls and disable your firewall. Then, reinstall the printer and download a 2008 version of your anti virus and re-enable your firewall. I haven't reactivated the parental controls just in case it all goes pear shaped.

SOURCE: Lexmark X2500 is giving Bidirectional communication error message

Make sure that the "Enable Bidirectional Support" checkbox is checked: Go to "Control Panel"->Printers->Right click on the print Object->Properties under "Ports" tab, enable this check box if not already enabled. If you using vista make sure you do this from an "Admin" account, you may also need to select the "Run as Administrator" option after you right click on the "PrintObject".

    Bidirectional Printing - A means of printing by a computer printer which prints one line from left to right, then the following line from right to left. Such printing is faster than printing in one direction only, as there is no need to wait for the carriage or other imaging mechanism to return to the left margin before starting a line.
    how to enable bi-directional printing.here's how:
    1. -click on start
    2. -click on printers and faxes (control panel->printers and faxes)
    3. -right-click on Dell Photo All in One Printer 964 All-In-One icon
    4. - click on properties
    5. -click on ports tab
    6. -down at the bottom there's a small box before bi-directional support
    7. -tick the box to enable it then click apply,ok
    8. -try printing again

    note: in vista , printers and faxes is printers.in win 7 ,it's devices and printers.
    and properties in win 7 is printer properties

    Keeps telling me to enable bidirectional communication


    Hi:

    When you first loaded the print driver there should have been a box to check to enable bidirectional communication. Most Lexmark printers require this to work properly
