Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer not connected to computer

My son in his wisdom unloaded my printer program, originally the disc that was with the printer didnt work correctly from new and had to contact lexmark to set up printer. I was using a usb cable to connect to computer, but this doesnt seem to be working now, the prompt says when I try to print, that this printer is not connected to computer. Must add, am not very good at understanding some of the jargon as am 60. By the way the printer is a lexmark z1380 model.

    I have been having this problem of 'not connected' while everything is ok. One moment it gives that message and another moment it prints perfectly. Now it quit printing altogether. I decided to uninstall and then reinstall and that is not working either. I just can´t get it reinstall, so now I´m without a printer. It´s an x4270

I don't think these do LPT printing but if it is, ensure you are using a bidirectional cable.

Otherwise, check the USB cable, and if you do reinstall; be sure that you didn't just put the printer back in the same USB port it was originally in or worse, leave the printer attached the whole time. Windows XP especially keeps driver files and settings specific to a particular USB device associated with USB port information in the registry, you may be putting whatever setting was messed up right back in.

Trying to connect printer to my computer prints with usb connection but not wifi not sure what to do


Once you plug in the printer it should try to install driver software. If it does not do this automatically then you can use the disc that came with your printer. Once this is installed try to print with Microsoft word or any other program and make sure the correct printer is selected. Hope this helps!

Pictures wont print correctly with vista


Are you using the correct drivers for Vista or just the disc you used before?

Download the latest Vista drivers from here (32bit)

If you have Vista 64 bit just change the system in the drop down menu.

Photosmart 145 fix


Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Lexmark 1270 scans but will not print


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 sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue

Try uninstalling and reinstalling your scanner with a clean install.

Do yo have the original disc? if not you can go to this site for a download of your scanner driver.

Here is how to do a clean download and install:

If you have the disc or when you have located the correct driver for your machine, please do a clean download and install as follows:

Uninstall the previous software.
Turn off the machine and unplug it
Turn off all your running programs including your virus control
(look in the lower right corner and click on each little icon there and turn off everything you can)

Insert your disc for a new install
>>>If you don't have the disc-Now download the driver and SAVE it to your desktop
Click on it to install and follow the directions carefully.<<<<< When installation is finished, if it has not told you to reconnect your printer, do so now.
Restart your computer.

Good Luck. Please let me know if this works and rate my solution. Thank You.

Lexmark 4270 disc won't work


Did you both (all users with same issue) competely uninstall the printers before trying to reinstall. Old entries in registry can cause conflicts if you try and reinstall same programs. I use a program called rev unistaller, which lists all programs on pc, even ones you thought were gone!!! IT uninstalls selected ones, then has options to get rid of hidden left over files.
Once no trace remains, try reinstalling your printer with original disc. If you have no disc, try to download the drivers again from lexmark. Email them for assistance if it will not download. Unnacepted disc is either a conflict in OS you now have, or above driver conflict. The disc may also be corrupted or dirty or damaged. Try copying the disc to a blank one and try installing printer off copy, this can get around some errors. Also, try cleaning it first. Good luck

Lexmark x2500


I have had the same problem when I went to redo my Windows Vista Machine. The answer is simple. Install the software from the installation disc that came with your printer. Next go to lexmark.com and download the driver package for your printer and install that. Now a window should pop up asking you if you want to install over the original or make a copy, MAKE A COPY.. After installation is done open lexmark studio and pick to open the copy version and there you go, you can now use your lexmark studio, and for some reason after you open the program once like this the original one works!!!!!!!!
