My lemark x3650 will not pick up on my computer


Hello,

If this is your first time using your printer in your computer, then, you need to install the driver enable for it to communicate with your computer. Look for the dvd that came with your printer when it was delivered to you. Insert the disc and let it run. Follow the on-screen instructions.

If you already installed that printer before in that computer but just stopped working, then, you probably have some problems with its communication. The communication between the printer and the computer has been interrupted. I can't tell what made stop working but I can tell you how to make it work fine again.

Here's what you need to do:

Un-install the printer's driver by going to the Control Panel/Remove or Uinstall Programs/Lexmark.... After you uninstall the printer's driver, insert the dvd (printer's driver) in the tray. Let it run. Follow the on-screen instructions.

I just bought A Kodak esp 3250 series AIO printer. I can print from computer, copy and all that but whenever I try to scan to computer or even preview scan I get a error saying :An error occurred while...


Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.

Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak.
1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.)
2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
3. Double-click twain_32.
4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner.
NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer.
6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it.
7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
8. Open Home Center Software:
a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
b. Scan a document.

Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: http://www.kodak.com/go/contact .

I hope this helps.

    Lexmak x1240 all in one will not communicate with computer


    Hi, I am writing you regarding your problem with the printer.

    If the printer is still not printing, try first replacing the usb cable, and try a different USB port.


    If still no luck , then you will probably need to reinstall the driver software, either from CD , or downloading the file from Lexmark website.

    If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

    Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

    A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
    Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
    After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

    • Unplug printer USB.
    • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
    • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
    • Follow driver installation wizard.
    • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
    Always start printer setup with printer unplugged, and chose printer as default during install.

    Drivers, Software, lost C.D....come this way!  

    If you have lost you cd or don't know how to install your printer then all you need to do is download the drivers and software from the manufactures website that suits your operating system and printer.
