SOURCE: lexmark 8350 won't communicate with computer

I do not know the solution to this problem because I am having the exact same problem with the scanner feature of my device - all other features work. I spent most of yesterday (Monday) on the phone with the Lexmark technicians going through all of their troubleshooting techniques, but to no avail. I had high hopes of success when a "Level II" Tech called late last night, but he could not stay on the phone with me while I executed the instructions. After uninstalling and reinstalling, and uninstalling and reinstalling the software multiple times, I am still right back where I started --- no scanner communication.

SOURCE: Lexmark X 1270 Can not Print

I may be a bit late with this but it worked for me. Uninstall your antivirus, remove any parental controls and disable your firewall. Then, reinstall the printer and download a 2008 version of your anti virus and re-enable your firewall. I haven't reactivated the parental controls just in case it all goes pear shaped.

SOURCE: Lexmark X8350 "communication not available"

I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

Chuck, I certainly sympathize with "tech support" that isn't, and with you on printers that don't get new drivers when new versions of Windows com out.
I'd be happy to enter a dialog with you to try to help you.
Have you tried another computer, hopefully running something different?
What connection are you trying to use? Does the printer have any alternative connection available? (say, USB or network)
When you first plug it into the computer, does the computer sense it's there and look for drivers, or does it ignore you?

How do I get my printer to communicate with my computer

If you have the software then this is easy. For the setup, plug your printer into your computer and run the software. It will find the printer and prompt you to set it up wirelessly. Go through and answer all of the prompts and it will be complete. At that point you can disconnect the cable and run it wirelessly on your network or Bluetooth.

OCR Software for Lexmark

You should be able to assign Abby FineReader 11 Pro as the OCR software in the Lexmark software (Lexmark Productivity Studio for Windows or All-in-One Center for the Mac OS). You will need this software though and to have the monitor running to "listen" for the scan button to be pressed. You will also need to ensure your firewall doesn't block communication if you connect the X6650 through the network.

In the Productivity Studio (launch Lexmark Home), click on the Settings tab and then the Scan Destinations option. Add Abby FineReader 11 Pro to the list of destinations. Click on that option and click on the Modify button to make sure that the Application button is set and is pointing to the correct program and correct file type. Then you can go back to the all-in-one and press the Scan button. Select Scan to Computer and then choose Refresh to update the list of destination programs.

I hope this helps. The steps may be slightly different in the Mac software.

Computer cannot communicate with printer

Check if your printer is up to date. Just go to to download the firmware update.

Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If there's an error message on your screen that your black ink is low even if you replaced it, you won't be able to print or scan. It will send a busy signal or communication not available to your computer. If this is the case, replace the cartridge.

If it still doesn't work work, try to reinstall the software:
