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 software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Printer not connecting to computer - orange wifi light stays on


You may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings. On the printer operator panel, press Settings button > Network Setup > Wireless Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Factory Defaults.
Relaunch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility. If you have a firewall enabled, make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.
Also, place your printer where it receives excellent wireless signal quality and away from other electronic devices which can cause wireless interferences (e.g. cordless phones, microwave ovens, baby monitors, garage door openers, and other wireless electronics).

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.

Lexmark X5470 printer


Download the Vista drivers from the Lexmark website. If the printer still doesn't work, uninstall windows Vista and put 2000 or XP.
That will avoid a lot of problems and your PC will run amazingly fast.

is the printer in its own USB port? Some printers that "talk back" to the PC do not like to share a port so do not have it on a USB HUB.
