SOURCE: No communication between computer and printer?

I had the same problem with my X5410, installing on Windows Vista. After about 6 hours of working on it I got it resolved.
I uninstalled the Lexmark software from my computer. Start -All programs-Lexmark -uninstall.
I then turned on all components of Windows Firewall. Control Panel - Windows Firewall.
I then re-installed the Lexmark software from the CD.

Hope this works for you !!!

SOURCE: The printer will not communicate with my computer

With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Why doesn't my printer communicate with m,y computer?


Try uninstalling and reinstalling or doing a repair. Make sure you have your install cd handy. You can uninstall or repair by going to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers. Then right click on the printer and either troubleshoot or remove the printer all together.

Installed software but when I try to print, message says print failed and when I look at printer in control panel it keeps saying offline how to get it online and stay there? Windows Vista 32 bit


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Disconnect your printer from your computer. Reboot your computer. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Try to print again.
You can also try to re-install the printer driver to repair any possible corrupted files necessary for printer communication and processes.

My printer wont print at all


Are you able to make a copy using the copy button on the printer operator panel? If not, try to reseat your cartridges into the cartridge carrier. If yes, then the problem could be due to a communication failure between the printer and your computer.

    Computer says there is no communication with the printer


    Couple of things to consider and try,,,have you tried another USB device in the computer, like a flash drive? If it can read the flash drive ok then the problem is not the USB port. Try using a different USB cable for the printer. Make sure your computer is up to date with the most current drivers. To me it sounds like a bad printer cable. Another thing to try is having the printer attached and when the error message comes up try wiggling the cable to see if communication is restored. If so then chances are that the printer cable is bad. Hope this helps.

    My printer is not communicating with my computer. I just got a new computer and I have tried restarting my computer and unplugging the usb but nothing works. I need to know what i can do to get my printer...


    as it is a new computer, have you tried uninstalling the printer software and start again. install the software as you did the very first time, this may clear any incompatible issues you may be having. remember to use the uninstall program which should in the same folder as the printer program (usually C://Program files) and then look for the lexmark folder. once you have fully uninstalled, reinstall. alternatively, insert your install disc that came with printer, select set up and you may be offered options of Modify, Repair or Uninstall.
    hope this helps
