    I have spent most of today and yesterday installing and un-installing both the Lexmark disks and download drives without any luck.

    I'm [to my dismay] still getting this message 'there is a problem connecting with the printer'.

    Would really appreciate any help from anybody with this.

I had the same problem. Fixed it by reinstalling the latest (Vista) manufacturer's drivers for the motherboard (USB drivers in particular). Hope this helps.

Hi,

It seems that the driver and software has incompatibility issues with your computer's Windows version or Windows might have downloaded and installed an update that caused this problem. I suggest first to visit Lexmark x4650 support & downloads website to download and install appropriate drivers by selecting your windows version (XP, Vista or 7). Remember to uninstall existing software & driver first. If problem persists, contact your printer's manufacturer for assistance.

This is your printer manufacturer's contact details.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

I HAVE A NEW PC, DOWNLOADED THE LEXMARK ALL I ONE TO IT, BUT I KEEP GETTING AN COMMUNICATION ERROR. THE WINDOWS IM WORKING WITH IS VISTA


Hi,

I would replace the USB cable, also uninstall the software and with the printer unplugged from the computer install the software again, then when it asks plug in the printer. Normally issues arise when the printer is connected before the drivers and software are installed.

Have a great day,

Cannot complete operation error 0x00000006 what mean?


Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Communication problem with notebook/printer


You've encountered 1 of the many issues with Vista. The OS is so gargantuan that Microsoft had to ax many of the drivers that were included with XP.

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html

Copy & paste the above URL into your web browser & that will take you right to the driver download page. Select the red highlighted "Driver Download" for the 1200 series printers. This will send you to the Operating System selection page. Once selected you'll see the red highlighted .exe file. Select "download now". You should see a pop-up asking you to save the file. I like to send downloads to the desktop to facilitate installation of the software. You can later drag & drop it into whatever folder you like.

Make sure to remove the XP drivers before installing the Vista drivers. Also remember to unplug the USB cable from the printer prior to installing the Vista drivers. The installation software will prompt you when to re-install the USB cable.

Good luck.

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


1st -make sure that the USB cable is connected on the correct port of your printer - you might be plugging it on the ports of the telephone - you got 3 ports there - 2 for the telephone ports and 1 for the USB

2nd- check your service if print spooler and lx devices are started (lexbce or lxdcu) - if not.... start it
>start >run>type services.msc > enter

3rd- if still no go - uninstall your driver and download windows vista x64 printer driver on their website
