I would uninstall the printer and then reinstalling the printer and software. If this does not work check all cables to be sure they are not bad. Make sure all cables are connected.

Printer will not save photos to computer


For whatever reason, it sounds like the printer cannot communicate with the computer. Check all the wire connections. If all connections are good, try printing a test page using Word. If you can print a test page, that shows everything is workign properly. Next, try uninstalling and reinstalling the software that came with your printer. If you do all these things, that should fix the problem unless there is something wrong with the printer hardware. Good luck.

Do the following:

Try a different usb cable.

Plug the cable into a different USB port.

Try disconnecting printer power cable for ten minutes.

Unplug computer power cord for ten minutes and restart.

Reinstall printer drivers.

If that all did not work, test the printer on a different computer, to find out if it is faulty or not.

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


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
