Is your printer connected to your PC? Is it plugged in and turned on? Is paper and ink properly loaded? If all is ok, try this: Shut down your PC and printer. UNPLUG PRINTER FROM pc and wall outlet. Turn on PC and wait until it is fully initialized. Plug the printer into wall outlet and turn it on. Connect printer to PC via USB cable. The PC should display a NEW HARDWARE FOUND messsage.

Can't connect to computer to do printouts

I believe the cord between printer and computer is an ordinary USB cable, available from lots of places in different lengths, and I suggest you try to get one and see if it does the trick.

Printer 4270 prints only a partial page and then stops

Thanks for the help. I followed your recommendation of uninstalling the Lexmark program and reinstalling it. Note that I had done this previously and still had the problem. However, following your advice, the third time must have been a charm. The problem has been solved.
