Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I was able to fix my problem without the help of Lexmark. I disabled my firewall thinking that would fix it but it didn't. I also have Kaspersky anti-virus software that had been running. I stopped the anti-virus s/w and now I am able to print. It's a little bit inconvenient to keep turning it on and off but until Kaspersky has a solution I'll deal with it.
Hope this helps.

So I got this new printer, a nice Lexmark all-in-one, fax, scan, copy, photos, prints, all the bells & whistles, right? I install it step by step just like it tells me to do. Everything shows fine, all appears hunky dory. Go to control panel, it says ready, big happy checkmark, it's set as default printer, it's online. Just one problem, it won't print. I get this nasty message that says there's no communication between the computer and printer. I tried 3 different USB cables. I unplugged, restarted, rebooted, tried every USB port on my puter, no go. Same thing. I checked windows firewall, the Lexmark stuff is all checked as exceptions, meaning they are being allowed through. I deleted the other 2 printers from the system. I uninstalled the new printer and reinstalled it - 5 times. I just have the feeling it's something in where the USB cable is hooked up. I have 4 USB ports in the back of the puter. I have 3 in front. The puter shows the printer designated to the "virtual printer USB port". All the troubleshooters tell me to check the USB connections and cables, then restart. No go. Same thing.
I've been at it for 5 hours now. I know it's something simple and stupid, but that's me - simple and stupid. Any ideas?
