    Printer not communicating


    This happened to me and what fixed it was to disable my firewall and THEN install the CD. The computer then recognized the install. Don't forget to put your firewall back up once the printer is running. Let me know if this works for you.

    Communication problem printer lexmark2600


    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

    Instalation problem


    Hi there! I just installed a Lexmark x5495 on my HP Pavilion with Windows XP and fought it for 3 days solid! Turns out my Norton Internet Security settings were blocking printer communication. Don't know if this will help your problem, but if you have Norton, it's worth a try. Just open your Norton, click on the internet security tab, then status & settings, then personal firewall, then programs, then scroll down to printer communication system and make sure it is set to "permit all". I also set my printer spooler service to permit all. The printer worked like a charm after that. I still don't know what Norton has to do with a local printer, but it was not allowing communication between puter and printer. Funny, but it worked fine with my old printer with that setting just as it was. Good luck!
