    Ok, it sounds like the printer itself may be having problems.... Try simply unplugging the USB connection from the printer to the back of the computer... the one cable that connects the two, just unplug it while your computer is running, it should make a sound out of your speakers telling you something was unplugged, then replug it in and it should make a sound as well.

    Does it? Let me know

    Ah ok, do you happen to have a usb cable you could use to test the printer with? It's possible the wireless has lost it's configuration on the printer, or has just stopped working. If you can connect it via USB or network cable to your computer it should work, and hopefully we can configure the wireless again. It is also possible the whole printer has just failed, and hooking it up to USB on your computer would help test this.

    Ok it sounds like the printer has actually failed then for sure. Your best bet as this point is to just replace it, it can be repaired, but repairs on this type of printer cost far more than just replacing the printer...

    I would suggest something like this wireless Canon for $66 that is also wireless and will be much more reliable than a lexmark..

    Also for just $20 more you can get a multifunction machine that scans, prints, does it all and is also wireless. This is really a better value, but don't know if you need the extra functionality:

Have not got manual for the lexmark interpret s405, so do not understanding controls. Also the printer keeps printing cannot stop it?

You can access the User's Guide from your computer. Just click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > View User's Guide.

If your printer keeps on printing the same document, there might be a lot of print jobs in your queue. You might have sent the same print jobs when you were getting the communication error. Just click on Start > Printers and Faxes > Double click on the Lexmark icon and clear the print jobs in the queue.

If you're frequently experiencing problems communicating with your Lexmark printer, if your printer is connected to your network, make sure that it's getting a good signal from the router. You might also want to update the firmware of your printer. Just go to to download the firmware update.

My printer will not print still after I troubleshoot it and everything. I have a netbook laptop so I don't know why it's not printing. It says it's ready and everything

Problem Print job does not print; No Lexmark job status window Solution What you will see

  • The Windows print queue spools the print job.
  • The print queue icon appears in the systray or notification area.
  • The print queue icon disappears as if the print job has successfully been sent to the printer.
  • The print job disappears and does not print.
  • No Lexmark job status window appears to indicate a communication problem.
  • No other communication errors. This issue is most likely due to a corrupt device mode registry entry from another printer that was installed and used in the past.
  • You do see the job status window and you do not see any alerts or communication errors, yet still nothing gets printed

What to do

A confirmed cause must be established before a resolution can be achieved.
To do this:

  1. download a diagnosis tool that will help determine the cause of the printing issue.
    IMPORTANT: Again, this tool is only to be used in cases where there is no communication error message from the Lexmark job status window and the job spools quickly through the Windows spooler, yet nothing prints.
  2. Select an easy-to-find Save location, such as your Windows Desktop.
  3. Double-click on the delserDevMode.exe file.
  4. Accept the License Agreement. After the file is executed, it saves devmode.txt to your root directory (e.g., C:\devmode.tx.

My computer is'nt comunication with the printer

It could be just a slight communication issue. Try to unplug your printer from your computer. Then unplug the printer from the power source. Replug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, replug it into your computer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues. If error continues, you may refer to this article on 'Communication Not Available' Error Message and Print Job Stalls in Print Queue for troubleshooting steps. You can also contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. Thanks.

Lexmark X6150 Inkjet - Problems Communicating with Printer

For scanning - use window drivers, try under window Photo Gallery. Works fine. For printing, the problem is when it tries to "delete" a file it prints it fails. Can not figure this one out.

This will start the Lexmark communication service.
Now, scroll down the list some more....
