First try plugging into a different USB port. I have seen several machines have a port suddenly die for no apparent reason. If that dosent work, try a different USB cable. Assuming the printer is working, the only thing left is either the cable or the port you have it plugged into.

Hi,

If you have lost the installation disk, you can download the installation driver from manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select and download the drivers according to the operating system of your computer (Windows Xp/ Vista..)

Lexmark 1270 scans but will not print


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue

I just put new ink Cartridges but still wont print


Hello,

Most of the time the "problem communicating with the printer" message pops up on Lexmark X1185 series when the driver gets corrupted. The best fix for this issue would be to uninstall the software first. Try connecting the USB to a different USB port (Please avoid using USB hubs, if any) and then reinstall the software. This should normally fix the printer communication issues!

Good Luck

My printer is not communicating with my computer. I just got a new computer and I have tried restarting my computer and unplugging the usb but nothing works. I need to know what i can do to get my printer...


as it is a new computer, have you tried uninstalling the printer software and start again. install the software as you did the very first time, this may clear any incompatible issues you may be having. remember to use the uninstall program which should in the same folder as the printer program (usually C://Program files) and then look for the lexmark folder. once you have fully uninstalled, reinstall. alternatively, insert your install disc that came with printer, select set up and you may be offered options of Modify, Repair or Uninstall.
hope this helps

Okay, so the printer works! It is just not working with the computer. It sounds like you need to uninstall and reinstall your printer.

Lexmark Printer - Lost connection to the PC?


I had to reinstall printer and download a new driver from Microsoft for Vista (by Jan 08 there were MANY revisions). It also helped to unplug printer connections, turn off computer and pug printer back in before rebooting. But you'll haveto keep doing this until you reinstall.
