Question about Lexmark X1240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Just purchased a Lexmark 1200 series printer and it's software was successfully installed and my computer is recognizing that something is plugged into its usb port. Yet when I try to print documents an error message comes up and says, "Problem communicating with the printer." So I followed every single troubleshooting recommendation: checking the firewall, disconnecting and reconnecting bot the usb cable and power, checking that the printer is in fact on, and restarting my computer. None of these work. Would it more likely be a faulty usb cable or do I need to return the printer? HELP!

Lexmark X8350 "communication not available"


I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

I have tried to install lexmark 1200 series all in one printer.computer says i havent got a valid port to install


Did you install the right driver for your system,xp/vista.

When you run the software disk and install it at some point it will ask you to turn on the printer and plug it in, this should not be done until the software ask's.

No connection with lexmark 1200 series (X1270 printer)


make sure your firewall software is configured correctly - nortons and mcafee especially can interfere with printers - try turning it off and seeing if you can connect then
