Question about Lexmark Wireless X4850 All-In-One Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

I am running Vista Home 32 bit and have a Lexmark X4850. It will not communicate with the printer from either wireless or USB. I got it to print a test page from both, but that was one time after a "successful" installation. I can't get it to print anything now. It will not even print a test page. I now get a message, ?problem communicating with the printer.? I uninstalled the software, rebooted, and reinstalled the software with the downloaded file, ?cjb4800en.? Driver did not install even though I got a ?printer installed successfully? message. There is no printer in Network/Printers and no printer listed in Device manager. Lexmark 4800 Series program shows in the Start menu. I ran the Wireless Configuration Utility, got another ?successful? installation message with no results. I checked the pop-up screen on the printer under ?Network Setup? and printed a Network Settings page. It says the printer is ?Connected,? Mac Address is good, IP address is good, TCP/IP is all on and good. Wireless shows, ?Infrastructure.? SSID is the same as the router. Quality says, ?Good.? A Ping of the computer IP address and Gateway was successful. I uninstalled the software again, as well as every running program, including my firewall, anti-virus/anti-spyware and reinstalled the printer again using the disc that came with my printer. This time, the printer shows up in control panel/printers, but nothing shows up in the Device manager and will not print a test page. I get the "problem communicating with the printer" message again. My firewall shows the Printer communication system and Printer Device Monitor. I bought this printer from the Gazaro web site, but can?t find the purchase receipt. If I can?t get this thing running, I?m throwing it out the window and will never buy a Lexmark again! This is the third all-in-one wireless printer I?ve had with my current laptop and the only one I?ve had trouble with. I?m told it?s actually a Vista problem, but I don?t see how.

Have you talked with Lexmark Technical Support? I suspect you may have to escalate this beyond level one. Vista on Mac is likely to have issues that differ from other Vista environments.

My Lexmark x4850 has stopped prin?t the computer. What is wrongting . Sometimes it will print when I restar


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.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/lY7NTO. Select your operating system, download and execute the file. After the install process, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Wireless printer communication unavailable via USB


Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

My lexmark 4850 wireless will not communicate with computer


Disable any Firewall/Antivirus you have running and try a new print.
If still an issue, go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right-click on Notepad and choose 'Run as Administrator' (if on Vista/W7). Try to print this notepad document. If it prints, it's Windows User Account Control that is blocking the print. This can be disabled in the Control Panel - User Accounts. 

If it's wireless, you can try re-installing the printer using USB connection in order to eliminate the wireless network as the issue. 
If it's still an issue, you can check your computer manufacturers website for updates for your chipset (USB drivers).

Cannot use Lexmark X4850 printer without installation disc.


Hi,

You should be able to go to the lexmark.com web site and search for your printer. Go to downloads and enter your printer description or X4850. This is the result I got. If your computer is running Windows, then you need to get either the download for 32 bit or 64 bit software. See microsoft.com link to tell the difference.

LexmarLk X4850 fax wireless set-up


Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.

Fax: this will need a phone line.

If the printer itself is wireless, it does not need to recognize your wireless computer network. Call Lexmark to walk you through proper installation. Lexmark's manuals are not adequate regarding setup, in my opinion.
