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.

COMMUNICATION NOT AVAILABLE LEXMARK X1150


Hi

This kind of issue might occur due to many reasons, like:

the previous installation files creating a glitch for new software.
PORT settings

Resolution:
goto devicemanager by following:
start->run->devmgmt.msc (type in the box)
check if you have printers with exclamation mark or any special symbol showing a problem with the device.
try updating the drivers,
a more feasible solution could be removing the usb composite device entries from the tree under usb section but this should be done only by a skilled technician.

Unable to connect printer to pc


Ok this may sound silly but I had exactly the same problem with a Cannon, tried new cords from the same Computer shop and other PC's with no success, now for the good news, by chance I tried another brand of USB printer cord bought from BIG W and it burst into life. So I suggest try another brand. Also make sure your computer USB port is set for USB 2.
