Make sure that you have the Lexmark "All In One Center" installed - that's usually the problem when you get communication errors.

First, you'll need to install the software and driver for this printer:

  1. Make sure you have the regular printer driver installed. If you don't, you can grab it from the Lexmark website and install it.
  2. Next, keep your USB cords plugged in but turn your printer off.
  3. Download the All-In-One Center Software here.
  4. Unpack the archive, open the "Applications" folder, anddouble-click Setup. This will install the application - it can take abit.
  5. Once the application is installed, turn the printer on and try a test scan. If it works, you're good and can quit reading.
  6. If you get an error when running a test scan, don't panic.Reinstall the regular printer driver, using the "Update Driver" optionthat appears.
  7. Restart your computer.
  8. Do a new test scan. This should bring up the All In One Center'sloading screen, which will start searching for programs (this canreallllly take a while). When it's done, everything will be workingbeautifully again!
Then, hit Lexmark's site for the Setup Sheet and User Guide available here.

    SOURCE: lexmark x7550 won't communicate with computer

    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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


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

    1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

    2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

    2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

    3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

    4. Reboot your pc.

    5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

    6. Wait until your pc 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, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

    My Lexmark 4650 keeps telling me that my margins need adjusting, plus it is giving me blurred copies.


    Check Page Preview before printing your file and see if the application you are using recognizes the entire page and does not cut-off the edges.
    You can try to print Fit to Page or Borderless and see if that helps.
    For your blurred copies, Please follow the steps below to fix your problem:
    1. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button.
    2. Go to Maintenance.
    3. Select Align Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page to align your cartridges.
    4. After the test page is printed, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

    Hi - my x4550 lexmark printer wont print, can you help?


    If your printer won't print when you're making a copy using the Copy button on the operator panel, it could be due to your ink cartridges. Try to re-seat your ink cartridges into the printer and make sure they are properly seated.
    If you're not able to print from your computer, it could be a communication problem. 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 computer and unplug/replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Try to print again.

    No power on my Lexmark X8350


    That's the same printer I have.

    First, make sure the blue "copy" button is lit. Printing is done there.

    Then, go to the circle with the checkmark in it and hit the menu, and arrow down to copy papy size and make sure it says "letter".

    Click start on your computer, then click control panel, then printers, and make sure Lexmark 8300 series is the default printer and has a green checkmark in a circle.

    If all these things are right, you should be able to print a test page and the computer should work fine.

    If any one of them are wrong they must be corrected. If you need help on any one of those please write back.
