You need to download Vista drivers for your printer from the Manufacturers website. Your computer does not know how to talk to your printer with out the updated driver.

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.

This is from the Lexmark Support page:

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model. (From Lexmark Support)
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Here's the support page:

If you need more help, just ask.

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.

Ckeck in control panel & se if the driver software installed. It should be listed in Add/remove programs. If it is, power up the piinter & load windows Vista update service. See if Vista has any patches for you're printer. If no, goto Lexmark & go to the driver section for you're P4350 printer software for Vista. While in Vista update, install any updates listed.
Click on the link provided.

Creat a folder on you're desktop & down load the latest driver software in-to the folder you created. Uninstall any Lexmark software that might have been in add/remove programs. Install the driver software you downloaded. If all this still fails, call Lexmark since this is a new printer. The number should be in you're manul. Or you can go here for free support.

Failure to comunicate with printer


Best to start from beginning, assuming your usb cable is ok. Remove printer from usb port,then uninstal printer driver. Re install printer driver and when prompted re connect printer(Use a different USB port, if have a spare one). Make sure windows finds new hardware, then identifies your printer(popup on right side of task bar), them watch for it telling you 'Your hardware is installed and ready to use'. Go to your printer folder in control panel and look on printers properties to see if it's on line. Come back if this does not cure it.
