    The solution to purchase a driver or download was very good! That would have been a very good solution however, I discovered that my printer was telling me their was a paper jam, which their really wasn't but once I finaly got the printer to clear, the printer was just fine. I had pushed the paper a little too far in and the printer decided I had a paper jam. Oh, well, thanks anyway, for your great solution.

Windows vista is a brand new OS and many printer manufacturers have had to produce new drivers to run on these OS. I would visit lexmark website and download the new driver fo your printer and OS (vista).

Hi Linda,
Did you check if the printer is able to scan or does it makes photocopy? if the printer doesn't respond to any input follow below steps.
  • Power Drain:
  1. Turn the printer OFF using the power button.
  2. Disconnect the power and USB cable from the back side of the printer.
  3. Press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds and release the button.
  4. Connect the power cable and try printing.
  5. If the above steps didn't work try below.
  • Partial Reset: Unplug the printer power cable while its ON, press and hold # and 3 button and connect the Power cord while holding.Wait untill the ON light flashes, then release the button. If you still see the issue try next level of reset.

Cant remember what cords are needed to connect my lexmark x4270


According to the Lexmark X4270 Specs page at Lexmark.com, this uses a standard USB A/B cable Click to See Example.

Be sure to get the A/B (or A Male to B Male) type cable. The two ends will look different from each other.

If you need a power cable, you'll need to contact Lexmark's tech support to find out what type you need.

Computer wont communicate with printer


If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
Install the driver on your PC.
Important Notice -
Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
go to Lexmark website using this link: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi enter your product number (X4270) and you will find your driver for Vista. Good luck.

Printer not connected to computer


I don't think these do LPT printing but if it is, ensure you are using a bidirectional cable.

Otherwise, check the USB cable, and if you do reinstall; be sure that you didn't just put the printer back in the same USB port it was originally in or worse, leave the printer attached the whole time. Windows XP especially keeps driver files and settings specific to a particular USB device associated with USB port information in the registry, you may be putting whatever setting was messed up right back in.
