Question about Lexmark X4690 Wireless InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Computer does not see the printer "communication error". I have used the Lexmark diagonistic tool, have reloaded the drivers. I have disabled the firewall. Still doesn't work. Was working some of the time but would usually have to reboot to get it to communicate with the printer. Now it doesn't communicate at all.

If your using USB cord try to change the USB cord of your printer because its maybe have the problem for it. But if it is also does not work just see the USB controllers at the Device Manager if their's no a problem from it. Just Right Click the My Computer, select Properties, go to Hardware, then click Device Manager and see the Universal Serial Bus Controller if they dont have any question mark (?) or apostrope (!). Because if they have any mark like that do you have a problem about your USB device. You just install the driver for that USB device to make sure that your printer will detect from the USB.
