Try a new USB cable and/or a different port. (If you are using a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Make sure the USB ports aren't disabled for security or power savings. (Check the device manager from the Control Panel in Windows and the advanced settings from the Screen Saver settings.) Check if a known working device works in the USB port.

Some of these printers have monitoring software as part of their full-featured software, so check that this software is running.

The worst case scenario is to try the firmware update from the above link. Try everything else first, the firmware update can cause more problems.

I hope this helps.

Just hooked an old lexmark 3300 printer to my windows vista. When printing it says communication not available


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/ffZS77. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.


If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Cannot connect my printer to my computer


This came right off of the lexmart site

Attention Windows Vista Users: Attention Windows Vista Users
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 - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Hi there i have a windows vista basic laptop, bought in febuary 2009. i have a HP all in one printer which has been disconnected from my home PC as this PC no longer works. i am trying to load the CD...


try just connecting the printer to the laptop without the cd first. Vista has lots and lots of drivers to install this printer. It will pick it up once you have connected it to the laptop and then turned the printer on. The Cd was probably not made for vista.

Unable to print


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 sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue
