Perform the following checks on the bi-directional communication:

  1. Temporarily unplug the power cord and then plug it back into the wall outlet. If necessary, turn the printer back on. The printer should make a resetting sound.
  2. Make sure that the print cartridge has been installed correctly and the cover snapped into place.
  3. Also make sure that the printer is directly connected to the USB port (or parallel port, where applicable) on the PC.
  4. An IEEE-1284 bi-directional parallel printer cable is required (not applicable for USB).
  5. If there is another peripheral device connected, remove it and connect the printer directly.
  6. If the problem persists, continue as instructed below.
To prevent the drvwppqt.vxd virtual device driver from being loaded:
Warning! Do not implement this solution if you have a tape backup device connected to a parallel (LPT) port on your computer.
  1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files Or Folders.
  2. In the Named box, type drvwppqt.vxd and then click Find Now.
  3. Rename all instances of the file by changing the file name extension from .vxd to .old. This will prevent the driver from being loaded.

Printed copy will not feed out line by line and finally will not feed the printed page. How to get it to work properly?


There could be something blocking the paper path that's not allowing the paper to not go all the way through the feeder. Try to open the printer and access the cartridge area. Remove the cartridges. Check for any foreign objects blocking the paper path. Rebrick your printer by removing the power adapter (black box found on the back of your printer where the power cord is plugged in) and then re-plug after 30 seconds. When your printer turns back on, re-insert your cartridges. Then try print your document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Problem communicating with printer message when printing. printer says offline


This could be just a slight communication issue. Try to unplug your printer from your computer. Unplug and replug the printer into your power outlet to reset itself. When the printer powers on, reconnect it into your computer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues. Thanks.

Your printer's rollers sound like they are worn along the paper path. I suggest you taking your printer in to have a maintenance cleaning or have the rollers replaced. This will resolve your issues.

Lexmark X73 Printing Problem


When you say that your all-in-one system will copy, but will not print from the computer, this tells me that there could be a connection problem between the printer and the computer. This is more then likely a driver problem. you will need to go to lexmark and download the latest drivers for your operating system.
But this could also be a broken or loose cable.

I bought a new computer with Windows Vista. I have a Lexmark x73 printer that was used with my old computer with Windows XP. I bought a USB port and my printer still doesn't work. I need help with this.


Not finding a Vista driver to be available from Lexmark x73. They only show the XP driver. You can get this driver free here: http://download.cnet.com/Lexmark-X73/3000-2116_4-22576.html?tag=mncol

One, try installing printer without the XP driver. Lexmark may have provided a quailifying driver with Vista hardware setup wizard. If it does not work or wizard cannot locate a driver, try the XP driver.

Beyond this, you may have to talk to tech support at Lexmark or repost here for another expert.

Use only recommended paper. Paper must be straight and low moisture content. Moisture can cause such problems.
If the problem remains then I ask whether your printer is new or dismantled for repairs?
