    Computer won't communicate with printer


    Make sure that the printer driver you are using is compatible with your version of windows. If so, open all printers in "control panel" and make sure that this printer is the preferred printer and not an old one you might still have installed.

    With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

    To fix a fouled install:
    (1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
    (2) Shutdown the computer
    (3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
    (4) Restart the computer
    (5) Run the Driver Installation software
    (6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
    (7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

    Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


    is the printer in its own USB port? Some printers that "talk back" to the PC do not like to share a port so do not have it on a USB HUB.
