Yes,
but the printer can only be used as a fax machine if the phone line jack on the printer is also connected to the phone line jack on the wall.

My Hp office-jet Pro X576 printer is connected via a network and if l send a print job it displays printer error switch off machine and the printer restarts .if l use usd it works fine


I would ensure that you have the current firmware installed on the printer and make sure that you are sending the job via network with a correct driver. If you manually set the IP address on your computer and the printer you should be able to connect direct using a crossover cable, I do that in the shop all the time.

How do i connect this printer to my computer?


Connect your printer via a USB 2.0 printer cable to your PC/Laptop USB port.

Before you can send a printout to it, you will also need to install the appropriate OS specific USB Printer Driver for the Lexmark X5470.

I keep getting a message on my lexmark 5600 -5500 Series (USB) - Communication Not Available - I tried all the solutions and did not fix the problm - can you help


Turn off the printer and remove the USB cable. Uninstall the drivers in Add and Remove Programs or look in the Lexmark folder in your Start Menu for a built in uninstall program for that Lexmark. Reinstall the drivers and plug the printer back in when told. INSTALL THE DRIVERS BEFORE CONNECTING THE PRINTER There are more problems with printers than ANY other device that can be attached to a computer. Check that your USB cable isn't broken or the ports themselves on the printer and the computer. Also check in Control Panel/Printers that the Lexmark is set as your default printer.

Connect Lexmark X5470 via wireless router


I would like to inform you that Lexmark X5470 is not a wireless printer. However, if you want it to use wireless then you should have a Lexmark N4050e 802.11g Wireless Print Server.

Can't print from MacBook, through Time Capsule, to Lexmark x5470


turn on the printer sharing via the system preference panel on the computer that is on the system via usb.
Then on your wifi computer look for shared printers and you'll see your printer in the list under the host computer name... use that setting and it should fire up for you!
let me know how it goes...

My printer is not printing Lexmark 5400 series


DO NOT use the Windows 7 Lexmark Driver for the 5400 series on the model X5470 all-in-one! I just assembled a new Win 7 computer and could not get the obvious Win7 64 bit driver to work. I called Lexmark tech support several times, and the third time they conceded that you can't use it. You have to use THIS ONE!
CJS5400en.exe (just for the X5400). Make sure you UNINSTALL COMPLETELY any previous Lexmark printer driver and check the hard drive for any vestiges of previous installations BEFORE installing the new driver...and do NOT use the 'cleaning utility' file that is on the Lexmark site for Win 7 - to clean all bits of former installations first...According to tech support, it doesn't work on Win 7!! I told the tech person that the driver site needs to be more specific on which models use which drivers...he agreed.

When you got this message were you trying to scan?

What I want you to do is a copy. Doing a copy will generally not require you to be hooked to the PC.

Scanning and Printing all require communication from the printer to the computer. Failure in communication can either be something on the computer, something wrong with the cable or rarely something wrong with the printer.

I'm assuming you have done the following:

1. Power off your printer and your computer.
2. Unplugged the power from the printer
3. Unplugged the USB cable from both the printer and the computer.
4. Reconnect the USB cable to the printer and the computer.
5. Plug the power back into the printer and make sure the printer is on.
6. Turn on the computer.

Those are general troubleshooting steps that can be done for any communication problem.

If you have done all of those try this:

Press and hold down the Windows key on the keyboard, and then type the letter R.
Type "devmgmt.msc" and then click OK on the Run dialog.
Find the item Universal Serial Bus controller.
Click the + sign next to the word Universal Serial Bus controller.
Do you see USB Printing Support?
Yes:
Right-click on USB Printing Support, and then click Properties.
Does the Device status say “This device is working properly.”?
Yes:
Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software?
No:
Click the Troubleshoot button to try to resolve the problem.
Does the Device status now say “This device is working properly.”?
Yes:
Try your print again (might need to restart)
No:
Might have a problem with your Printing Support

No:
Might have a problem with your Printing Support

Let me know - if you have a problem with your printing support you'd really need to contact your PC MFG for help - but you can always try uninstalling the USB Printing Support and reinstalling it (only if you have your disks that came with your printer).

Lexmark X5470 scanner problem


i had the same problem but if you open the Lexmark All-In-One center (can be found in start --> all programs --> lexmark 5400 series --> all-in-one center) and select scan (it will work)

if you dont have the program installed find your installation disk and when u re-install it, it should come up again
