    I just tried it, apparently, to no avail... I've down total shut downs on both the computer and printer... checked cables by hooking up another printer - no problem... deleted ports, and added back in... I'm at a loss, the only suspect I have, is the printer... :(

Hmmm...maybe there's a driver corrupted? you can uninstall the printer completely, and then start over again.

got backup?

COMMUNICATION NOT AVAILABLE LEXMARK X1150


Hi

This kind of issue might occur due to many reasons, like:

the previous installation files creating a glitch for new software.
PORT settings

Resolution:
goto devicemanager by following:
start->run->devmgmt.msc (type in the box)
check if you have printers with exclamation mark or any special symbol showing a problem with the device.
try updating the drivers,
a more feasible solution could be removing the usb composite device entries from the tree under usb section but this should be done only by a skilled technician.


Thanks & Regards,

The printer will not communicate with my computer


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 software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Lexmark X5470 printer


Download the Vista drivers from the Lexmark website. If the printer still doesn't work, uninstall windows Vista and put 2000 or XP.
That will avoid a lot of problems and your PC will run amazingly fast.

Computer will not communicate with printer


The Router won't affect the printer. Try a repair, go into Start/Settings/Control panel/Add remove programs, find the printer software in the list and if there's an option to repair, go for it. If not...
You may need to update your driver:
