    Everything worked fine until last month when it would no longer print. I have a home network, some wire and some wireless. Copy, fax still work but no communication between pc's and printer. Says on-line, has connection to router but no printing. Tried reinstalling software, no good. Tried direct connect to one pc, still nothing.

    I don't know how to establish a connection either. The advertisements say this product may connect using a USB, but I can't find a port anywhere.

Does the printer do copies? Or do you have probs by powering up machine (machine is dead)?

Plz tell us what PC System (Mac or Win AND which version!) do you run and how did you connect the mfc to the PC: USB or Network?

You may try the following suggestions:

  • Right click the icon again, then 'Set Printer Online'.
  • Power cycle the printer. Just turn it off and then turn it back.
  • Reinstall the printer by running the 'Add Printer Wizard' and let it automatically find your printer to be reinstalled.

Cant get my lexmark 4270 series going on my computer help

Go to Control Panel -> Printers. Is the printer listed here? Is the printer Online (It will say Online or Offline next to the printer tile)? If it says Offline, the computer cannot currently see the printer so check to make sure it is plugged in and turned on and that the cable is connected from the computer to the printer. If it is Online, right-click on the printer tile and select Properties. On the General tab, click on the Print Test Page button. After a few moments, the printer should spit out a test page. If this prints out, your printer is working properly. If not, let me know what error messages (if any) it displays or the overall printer behavior (blinking lights, beeps or other noises, etc).

Wont print from online screens

Im going to assume you are using Internet Explorer. You might try to update to IE 8 or event changing Browsers to Firefox just to try this out. I have found that MS has identified some issues with IE and some PCs and printing. Here is their document.

As the device is connected wirelessly, make sure there is no interference in wireless communication. Also you can try to set pritner status online by right clicking on printer icon. Also try to  use the cd again and do an add a device.

Printer wont print anything

Did you mean just the cord was repaired or did you get a new pc??? Many times, once a computer is unhooked and transported to be repaired, sensitive settings and drivers can be upset by the move. Sounds bizarre but i know it happens because it even happens to me. The other thing is did anything get done to the internals of your pc, or the software changed. This is really important too. ie, did the repairer have to change any settings in the pc, in windows or any where. Please post exact changes if any. If no settings were touched and it was just the cord, i suggest completely uninstalling the printer from the pc. If you do not know how to do this, post back. Once all traces are removed, reinstall it. Make sure printer is completely uninstalled and new installation is smoothe and no hiccups. Now connect back up correctly and turn on. Your pc should recognise new hardware and configure it for you and away you go.

Printer stopped working

Check printer, is it ready/online ? Do a test via keypad of printer and see if printer is ok.


If printer is ok then check again cable that goes from it to PC


If printer is not working, check for error lights,display,paper,jams.


We need to know Model and Make of printer, what you are using to print, and how it's connected, to help you any further.
