Also, check your port settings in Windows' Device Manager. Right-click My Computer on your Desktop (or click System from the Windows Control Panel), click Properties, and select the Device Manager tab. Click the plus sign (+) to expand the Ports menu item and view Properties for your Printer Port (LPT1). Verify that the port is working properly and it is enabled, and that you have the appropriate drivers installed. USB (Universal Serial Bus) printer cables can also come loose, and they often conflict with other devices. Remove any USB peripherals and try again. Next, check your printer status by right-clicking its name in the Printer window. Is it online? Is it your default printer? If another printer (or even a printing program, such as a virtual fax printer or Adobe Acrobat distiller) has taken over the default role, you may be printing to the wrong place without realizing it.

    On the Control Panel you will see the icons Printer / Faxes, click there and you will see all the printer installed on your system, and there where you can select which should be your default printer.



    Tell me more when thing's get done..

I have tried to install lexmark 1200 series all in one printer.computer says i havent got a valid port to install


Did you install the right driver for your system,xp/vista.

When you run the software disk and install it at some point it will ask you to turn on the printer and plug it in, this should not be done until the software ask's.

All in one printer x1240


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

Installing Lexmark 1200 series


Have you downloaded a "driver" for the printer. If not, search for "Lexmark 1200" free driver downloads. Or go to "control panel" and click on "add new hardware" and follow the onscreen instructions. Try this first and if not work, then do the search.

Communication problem with notebook/printer


You've encountered 1 of the many issues with Vista. The OS is so gargantuan that Microsoft had to ax many of the drivers that were included with XP.

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_1019285789_0_en,00.html

Copy & paste the above URL into your web browser & that will take you right to the driver download page. Select the red highlighted "Driver Download" for the 1200 series printers. This will send you to the Operating System selection page. Once selected you'll see the red highlighted .exe file. Select "download now". You should see a pop-up asking you to save the file. I like to send downloads to the desktop to facilitate installation of the software. You can later drag & drop it into whatever folder you like.

Make sure to remove the XP drivers before installing the Vista drivers. Also remember to unplug the USB cable from the printer prior to installing the Vista drivers. The installation software will prompt you when to re-install the USB cable.

Good luck.
