A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by
resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer
from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and
re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns
on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again
once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on
the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).
If that doesn't help, try the steps below:
Disconnect the USB cable
connecting the printer from your computer.
On your computer, go to Control
Panel > Printers and Faxes.
Delete the Lexmark print
Re-brick your printer by
pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged
into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
When the printer turns on,
reconnect it to the computer.
Wait until your computer fully
recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers
and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print
a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
You may also try to update your printer
driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/aNGYmW. Select your operating system,
download and execute the file.
To anyone with a Dell V105 printer and wanting to get it to work on Mac OS X 10.9.1. Dell's V105 printer is a Lexmark X2600 series printer. I suspect it's specifically a Lexmark X2650 Scanner/Printer. Download from Apple's support website the Lexmark printer drivers. Install and select "Lexmark 2600 Series" from the Scanners Printers in system preferences. I have not found a way to scan yet. But this got me printing.
If you get this error when trying to scan from the computer try starting the scan directly from the device and see if that works. If not, unplug and replug the USB cable(assuing you are connected to the computer via USB cable) and install the driver, if you get any plug and play prompts. Let me know if this doesn't work.
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
