This is a link to the Lexmark Web site, download the proper drivers and software for your system,

If you are having problems with communication with printer, check the cables, if it is connected via USB.
Move the USB connection to a different USB port on the PC.
Unplug printer from the power supply, plug back in and turn printer on..
Print a test page from the print driver located in the control panel in the printer and drivers folder..

Printer not communicating with and driver updated and working properly.. keep getting network error code 101-5096


Your printer is not communicating with the computer correctly. Reinstall the driver of the printer. It should work fine after the reinstallation process. But be sure to uninstall the driver before you reinstall it. You should not overwrite the installation because the problem will still come back.

I hope this helps.

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

Dell Inspiron/HP 6940 stopped communicating

Have you removed the powe cable form the wall for 5 minutes?

Also check to see if another device has been installed or software recently that might have "overtaken" your printer.
