Question about Lexmark X1290 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Printer works, scanner works, try to do a copy from the printer button or from the on screen control panel and I get a message tha the printer is not communicating with the computer?
Have Vista, just reinstalled the driver from a previous download.
Computer is Acer Aspire 3680-2249 and the firewall was off
Make sure the driver you used was not corrupt, by downloading it again. It can also be surpassed by copying the drivwr on to a new disc in case it is a disc error. Also make sure uninstalls and reinstalls are smooth and final with no leftover files. Make sure you unisnatll and reinstall under device managers and you can even use a program like revo unistaller which will remove all traces in the registry. Have you also made sure the printer preferences are not stusk on work online, or some other setting not suitable? Also clear the printer queue, as this can unblock printers 'memory file' and help it communicate again.

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.
