Locate the printer through "device manager". Uninstall the drivers for it. reboot the computer. Check to see if it's recognized now.


Hope this helps. :)

Make sure you have the drivers downloaded and updated. You can get them free from the manufacture's website. The divers is what lets the printer and pc communicate.

My printer is not communicating with my computer it is with my phone thou.


If it is communicating with your phone you are on a Blue Tooth connection. You most likely will have to hook up your computer by Blue Tooth as well. I don't know what type of printer you have but you may have an option to set up both types of connections but it will be in the printer menu under set up/wireless/network

Did you install the drivers for this model? Did you run the install disk? Try hooking all up and turn it on while the computer is OFF the turn it on, it will have to recognize the printer then.

Is hooked up to computer but says it not hooked op to computer will no print off computer


this could be a communication problem.

you need to make sure that the cable that you are hooking up is the one that came with the printer,also you may need to plug the cable into a different port and check if the computer detects it.

{take intensive care in case you follow these steps. }
there is an entry for USB printing support
and USB composite device in the device manager under USB devices, if you remove these entries. the computer will start detecting the plug and play device and hence will detect the printer.

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

Computer will not communicate with printer


Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.
