Installing printer I am installing a Lexmark printer/scanner/fax on my laptop and keep getting the message that the printer is not communicating with the computer (top of dialogue box says USB port). Does this mean I require a new USB cord?

Hi there!

1. Try another USB port at the laptop (if you have other USB ports in it).
2. Try a known working USB cable.
3. Try a different laptop/ computer.

This should further isolate your problem.

Hope this helps!

Try to re-insert the installation disc that came with your printer. Run the disc and make sure to install the Lexmark scan driver. If you have a firewall enabled, make sure to allow all access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.

Computer wont communicate with printer


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 Notice -
Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
go to Lexmark website using this link: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi enter your product number (X4270) and you will find your driver for Vista. Good luck.

Drivers for Lexmark x5470 disapear after the laptop is turned on.


Hey,

Fully uninstall the lexmark from your computer, everything, delete the printer from printers and faxes and make sure there is no trace of the printer on the computer.

Then get the files you downloaded and install the printer again.

Everything should work normally.



Thanks,
Ekse
