Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have gotten the printer installed on my computer and when tryin to print...stating the cannot communicate......i have a windows vista
How many devices do you have connected to your USB ports. Many computers power supplies cannot handle the power drain of excessive devices (cell phone charger, digital camera, wireless keyboards and mouse, wifi adapter, and printers. Remove a few devices and see if the printer will work. If it does, get a cheap powered USB hub. And plug the other devices into it.
It may also be a software issue.
Vista has it's own drivers and will assign it's own to your printer when you plug it in. This method will not work with many external devices. Completely disconnect the printer. Then install the lexmark driver. A window will pop up saying that the software being loaded is not approved by windows. Click install anyway. The software will instruct you when it is ok to connect the printer. You may have to go into the printer and faxes (control panel) and delete the current default printer.
Just one of the joys of having Vista
