Printer wont communicate with computer,have lost cd installer?


If you have lost/misplaced the installation disk, you can download and install the drivers and software from the Lexmark X2250 support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, click the "Complete drivers and software for setting up, configuring, and using your device with Windows 32-bit" link to open the download window. Then click the 'Download' button to start the download process.

If your computer has a different operating system, click the "[Change OS]" link and select the correct operating system. [Microsoft Windows Vista/others....]

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

I get error 'Unable to find destination PC-Check the PC' on Kyocera Mita


This error means that there is a communication problem between the printer and the computer that is receiving scanned file. The error is usually prompted on network installed printers.

Check to ensure that the Scanner File Utility software is running and the computer is able to receive data.
Try restarting the computer and printer. Disconnect both units from power supply for five minutes before restarting.
Check if you have firewall or security software active on computer that can block communication from scanner. Ensure that the scanner utility is listedas an exception on firewall settings, if the application is not present, then you need to add it to allowed applications list.
Ensure that you have granted Scanner Utility access to system resources if asked.
Reinstall printer software and driver on PC. This can be done either using the disk provided with the printer, or using the download from Mita website.
Test the computer network cable. If cable is worn it can cause communication errors. This problem is usually occurring on LAN (network) printer installation. If using local installation via USB, then test using a different USB cable. If USB cable is damaged or too long (over 10 m.) , then you may get the error stated on local installation.

The most common reason for this problem is firewall settings or network problems. Network problems may be difficult to troubleshoot. Remember also that there is a built in firewall in the router resident software. If the router is set to block inbound communication from printer to computer, or if printer and computer are in two different IP ranges (eg. and, then you may get communication between computer and printer blocked by router firewall.

Here a setup manual (click to download), also ensure that you have performed scanner setup correctly.

Here also Kyocera Mita download driver page:Kyocera's managed print services .

Please find the Epson CX3900 printer driver download link below, open the webpage and click on the driver link to download, however since you have not provided me the details about the operating system installed on your computer, the webpage link below has a number of driver links on it so make sure that you select the driver which is appropriate with the operating system installed on your computer once the driver is downloaded install then driver.

Note: Please do not connect your printer device to the computer until the installation wizard asks you to do so.
