My Lexmark X1270 is not communicating with my computer... i've tried uninstalling a re-installing but it hasn't worked, anything else i could try?.


I recommend not to plug the printer to your computer yet. Try uninstalling by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > All Programs/ Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Then restart pc. To reinstall, I suggest you use the updated driver from the Lexmark website. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/9Xw7bN. Choose the correct driver compatible with your computer's operating system. Download and install the software. Follow the instructions. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Many issues are caused when the HP Photosmart is connected to computer using a USB cable before the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. IF you connected the HP Photo smart to your computer before the software installation screen prompts you to do so, you must follow these steps.

Troubleshooting common setup issues :
1) Discoonect the USB cable from the computer.
2) Uninstall the software (if you have already installed it.)
3) Restart you computer.
4) Turn off the HP Photosmartm wait one minute then turn it on.
5) Reinstall the HP Photosmart software.

If your installation is incomplete, or if you connected the USB cable to the computer before prompted by the software installation screen, you might need to uninstall and reinstall the software. Do not simply delete the Hp Photosmart application files from your computer. Make sure to remove them properly using the uninstall utility provided when you installed the software that came with the HP Photosmart.

To uninstall from a Window computer and then reinstall
1) On the Windows taskbar, click Start, Settings, Control Panel (or just Control Panel).
2) Double-click Add/Remove Programs (or click Uninstall a program).
3) Select HP Photosmart Driver Software, and then click Change/ Remove.
Follow the onscreen instructions.
4) Disconnect the HP Photosmart from your computer.
5) Restart your computer.
Note : It is important to that you disconnect the HP Photosmart before restaring your computer. Do not connect the HP Photosmart to your computer untill after you have reinstalled the software.
6) Insert the HP Photosmart CD-ROM into your computer's CD-ROM drive and then start the Setup program,
7) Follow the onscreen instructions and the instructions provided in the Setup Guide that came with the HP Photosmart.

I get a hp toolbox error on my hp m2727 printer and the scanning function stopped working. uninstalled, installed, uninstalled, clean many times but won't work (also suggested by HP). what to do?


Try installing that printer on another computer to make sure the printer is still fuctional. If it does work on another computer then you know its a problem with your operating system on the original computer.

At that point figure out if you installed any windows updates on that computer cause windows updates can screw things up. If so then uninstall the windows updates and see if that fixes the problem.

If it doesn't then windows is corrupted and you would need to do a factory restore on your computer and start from scratch. In that case, save any important info from the computer.

I can print from my Dell 926 all in one, but it wont scan


Try removing your 926 icon in Printers and Faxes, disconnect the USB cable, restart your computer, reconnect the USB cable, see the 926 and install the driver again. If scan has never worked, you probably need a different driver.

Hope this helps.

I have a windows xp and i just baught a hp officejet j3600 printer and i can not install the printer


If you plug in the printer before you installed the software it may be the problem. Uninstall the software and then unplug the printer and then re-install the software and only plug in the printer when asked to do so. Here is instructions from the manual.
Uninstall and reinstall the software
If your installation is incomplete, or if you connected the USB cable to the computer before
prompted by the software installation screen, you might need to uninstall and then
reinstall the software. Do not simply delete the device application files from your
computer. Make sure to remove them properly using the uninstall utility provided when
you installed the software that came with the device.
There are three methods to uninstall the software on a Windows computer, and one
method to uninstall on a Macintosh computer.
To uninstall from a Windows computer, method 1
1. Disconnect the device from your computer. Do not connect it to your computer until
after you have reinstalled the software.
2. Press the Power button to turn off the device.
3. On the Windows taskbar, click Start, select Programs or All Programs, select HP,
select Officejet J3500/J3600 Series, and then click Uninstall.
4. Follow the onscreen instructions.
5. If you are asked whether you would like to remove shared files, click No.
Other programs that use these files might not work properly if the files are deleted.
6. Restart your computer.
7. To reinstall the software, insert the device Starter CD into your computer's CD-ROM
drive, follow the onscreen instructions, and also see Install the software before
connecting the device (recommended).

I am trying to uninstall a defective printer,so I can install its replacement. I have it disconnected but the uninstall mode won't let me do it. It keeps saying that it is printing and to wait till it...


your printer services ( the printer spooler ) for your computer is stuck trying to print the document.

Reboot the computer and this should clear the error. If that does not work, you need to go to administrative tools, in the control panel, and select "services". scroll down the list until you get to "print spooler". right click on it and then "stop". Then right click on it and "start" or "restart".

This should allow you to then remove the old printer.

as it is a new computer, have you tried uninstalling the printer software and start again. install the software as you did the very first time, this may clear any incompatible issues you may be having. remember to use the uninstall program which should in the same folder as the printer program (usually C://Program files) and then look for the lexmark folder. once you have fully uninstalled, reinstall. alternatively, insert your install disc that came with printer, select set up and you may be offered options of Modify, Repair or Uninstall.
hope this helps
