My Lexmark X1270 is not communicating with my computer... i've tried uninstalling a re-installing but it hasn't worked, anything else i could try?.


I recommend not to plug the printer to your computer yet. Try uninstalling by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > All Programs/ Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Then restart pc. To reinstall, I suggest you use the updated driver from the Lexmark website. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/9Xw7bN. Choose the correct driver compatible with your computer's operating system. Download and install the software. Follow the instructions. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Message given that computer not communicating with printer. Cable is plugged in properly, and it works with an older laptop. Tried the USB root hub suggestion above, but none were checked.


Mine seems to regularly to this. Bit of a pain, but everytime I uninstall it, then reinstall it, it works again for a while. Don't know if it's because I don't keep the printer plugged into my laptop all the time?? Try this anyway if you haven't already. Jen

Printer not communicating


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

You may need to uninstall the printer and reinstall then install the communication cable last.I had the Lexmark X85 do the same thing when I moved my office and I had to do it this way.

1. Please uninstall the printer driver software then restart the computer.
