My PC (Windows XP) recognises my Lexmark X2550 all-in-one printer, but won't print to it. The drivers have been loaded and reloaded to no effect. I keep getting a communication error in a dialogue box. I have done everything to correct the problem, but I continue to receive the error.Any ideas?

Go to Start, Printers and Faxes. Right click on your printers and select properties. Click the port tab. If you are using a parallel cable make sure LPT1 is checked. If you are using a USB cable makes sure USB is checked.

Installed new 28 and 29 cartridges in lexmark x2550 and it won't recognise the cartridge and won't print at all, very frustrating please help urgently


It could be that your cartridges need some cleaning. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Solution Center. Click Start menu > Programs or All Programs >Lexmark 2500 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print again.

Downloading Lexmark X2550 for Driver for Vista


Go to Lexmark website to download the print driver. You may be able to find the the complete install file there also. If the printer is extremely old there is a very good chance it may not work with Vista. Hope this helps and good luck!

Lexmark X2550 Printer


Hi Margaret,
Unfortunatly your operating system is not supported by this printer. By using such an aged Windows version, please be mindful to review the supported operating systems on the side of the box of any hardware (e.g. printers, cameras) or software that you may purchase in the future.
My personal recomendation would be to upgrade to least Windows XP if your computer is equipped with the processor and ram to do so. You are going to find yourself running to this situation more and more as the generations of Windows progress.
If this is not an option for you, simply find an alternate printer that is supported by Win98 and return the one you've purchased.
I hope this helps,
T-Mo
