Please help!!! Newly purchased and installed on windows XP used lexmark 4200 series installation cd and manual. Copy, scan and fax functions work but print has "problems communicating with printer" Tried all troubleshooting ideas to no avail. Cables all secure and power on. Port and bidirectional activated.

Have any of you tried an internal USB card? I work for a service center, and i have a customer having the exact same issue. The lexmark works on any other computer here, but on the IBM the customer owns, it will print slow to not at all. Problems communicating with the printer, blah blah blah. I have tried 2 other printers on the customers IBM computer and they work beautifully, like they should. I tired updating the bios and the chipset to no avail. I then tried a USB 2.0 internal card, as it will use its own chipset to handle USB, not the motherboards, and the lexmark has been printing fine ever since. I have no answer, as i cant find a single thing online about a chipset incompatablity, but has anyone else tried this and it worked?

and it is windows xp pro on the customers computer.

Tried an internal USB port (also have Windows xp Pro) and still have a communication error with this printer.

Wish it had crashed during the first six months instead of working fine and so I could've taken it back and gone to an HP or anything else. I am really frustrated with this printer/scanner/fax.

Have it on good authority from a techie friend that the Lexmark software makes the print spooler dependent on it (whatever that might mean). The more I learn about this printer, the more frustrated I become and the message from the Lexmark support centre is simply "it does not work with Broadband"; unless any of you know any different?

Hi,

I have to be quite honest I am still suprised the problem here is still not as published as it should be. The problem you are having is with Windows XP, more notably Service Pack 2. It is not a particular device problem, but rather a general communications problem between specific XP components which was due to XPs new security center.

The fixes are mostly passed around on sites related to networking, because the biggest issue is a "NO CONNECTIVITY" error it produces with certain network adapters. If you search around the web you'll find several fixes. Apply them all followed by Microsoft's TCP/IP (Winsock) patch and you should be up to snuff. I suffered the same problem with my Lexmark as well as my Networking when I upgraded to SP2. Which I may add ticked me off alot. However, luckily I addressed the networking first. Because that in itself fixed the printer as well.

Hope you guys have a great week.

Sounds encouraging. Do you happen to know one such link that I might find the fixes you mention on? Your expertise is clearly much greater than mine!
Thanks

I'm not getting a communications error, but I think it's something of that sort. Whenever I send anything to it, it prints, but sometimes it makes the graphics really blochy and does this really weird thing with the text- it prints out part of the line, draws a little vertical black splotch, then repeats the last few characters. When it runs out of room on the line, it simply chops it off. This doesn't happen when you print something without a computer, like, the built-in alignment page, but even if you spool the alignment page to it it still has wrong colors and says it

Sounds like we are all in the same boat. I too have a Lexmark X4270 and it worked fine since October when I bought it until just this week. And I am running broadband and see how that has nothing to do with our problems. You don't have to have the phone plugged in for it to work. I go to print something from the internet and get a script error. I try to print from a word processor and it tells me there is no printer when I can the printer and fax in the printer folder under control panel. I downloaded the software and get the fax solutions to show up but no Lexmark Solution Center. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it as I am going bald over here pulling out my hair. TIA.

Here's how we resolved it:
Since this printer was part of a giant rebate thing, we needed the barcode to get the $250 rebate that was attached to the printer. Circuit City was nice and let us cut the barcode out of the box and pay $10 more for a really nice HP all-in-one which works great. The Lexmark went where it belonged in the first place: the dump.

I have also experienced the message "error communicating with the printer" on a Lexmark X4270 that was connected to a Windows 98 SE PC via a USB 1.0 connection built into the motherboard and I would like to add my support in light of a successful fix for the use of a PCI USB 2.0 card. This particular PC in question was running an AMD chip (I can't remember the exact speed) but it was probably equivalent to something like a Pentium 166 and contained predominantly VIA chipsets for devices such as the built-in USB (which I had tried various updates on to correct the problem without success).

The printer would typically complete a print job perfectly OK even if this print job consisted of 3 pages for instance. But, if you asked the system to produce multiple copies e.g. 3 copies, the communication error would typically come up after the first print was completed or before any print activity occurred at all. It was also known to surface having attempted a print job of another file after the successful completion of a previous print job. The symptom was usually "frustratingly rectified" by powering off the PC and printer and starting all over again. Interestingly the user also had an old version of a graphics program (SignWizard) which although the content of the printout was correct it was not positioned on the page as the user expected. They were able to get around this issue by exporting their graphic to Corel Draw and then printing from Corel Draw.

I installed a Shintaro 2 port USB 2.0 card (model 202V) which supported Windows 98. The card only cost about $15 so I thought it was worth a gamble. The system requirements for the card stated "Pentium II 400 or above" but the system that I installed it in was equivalent to a first generation Pentium so I was not confident of success!!

To my surprise connecting the X4270 to this card not only fixed the communication errors which occurred and allowed multiple prints to be done, it also rectified the odd printing issue with SignWizard so the user no longer has to export to Corel Draw!!!

Monette,

Noticed you message while searching for answers to repairing another Lexmark printer. You probably already have the answers by now but here is what the manual says.

Hardware Error: 1200

The All-In-One is stalled.

1. Press Power to turn off your all-in one.

2. Unplug your all-in-one fro the wall outlet.

3 Check for paper jams.

4 Plug in your all-in-one

Cartridge Error: 1200

The cartridge carrier is jammed.

1. Turn off you all-in-one

2. Unplug the all-in-one form the wall outlet.

3. Open the control panel.

4 Open the cartridge access door

5. Make sure the cartridges are snapped in place in the carrier.

6. Check for objects obstructing the carrier.

7. Plug in your all-on-one

8. Press power to turn your all-in-one back on.

Hope this resolves your issues.

The ultimate fix for this problem is to give your Lemark and Dell printers to people that you really dislike. Let them live with the frustration. Then buy yourself a Hewlett Packard, Canon, or Epson printer. Check the cost of the cartridges for each brand prior to making a purchase. Purchase the printer with the least expensive cartridges and one that will take the generic (compatible) cartridges available in retail stores and refill stores. My personal favorite are the Epsons. They print excellent colors and are very affordable to own, and most important, operate.

I had "printer cannot communicate errors", also. After beating my head against a wall for a month I found my sound card was sharing an IRQ with my usb.

This fixed my communication problems. After I fixed that the lexmark decided to print documents incompletely missing the last few paragraphs of a document.

Any ideas would be extremely beneficial to my sanity. :D

Thanks.

Re: Lexmark all-in-one X4270 printer error 1200 by Bill1229 (6/23/07 8:29 AM) reply + / -
My 1200 error was caused by a cartridge landing pad jam. When the ink cartridges are parked, a landing pad moves from left to right and comes up to cover the jets to prevent ink from drying out. It locks in place and there is a spring which allows the pad to unlock and move out of the way - my spring kept coming off the post. Symptom is you can't change the ink cartridge when you open the access cover because they don't slide over.
To fix it,(complexity is 6 of 10), UNPLUG PRINTER, remove the handset (unplug cord) and rest (unslide cover underneath and pull out electrical connection, remove one screw), then remove 8 screws (2 in back 6 on top) from top cover, and remove same. Look for the spring if it's jumped. It belongs underneath the landing pad on a plastic post surrounded by a C guard. Gently move the ink shuttle to the left by turning the motor that drives the belt. When the landing pad is to the left most travel, it should be down out of the way of the cartrige movement. I had to remove the shuttle guide shaft to move the ink shuttle left but if you can coax the pad down this may not be necessary. I put the spring on and heated a flat blade screwdriver and pushed gently on the post to melt/mushroom it. The other end of the spring goes on a hook on the bottom of a pivoting catch (top of the catch looks like 1/2 an arrow and should point to the right, with the pivot shaft in the hole in the landing pad). Once reattached and with internals in operating order, with the cover off you can plug in the printer and test to see if it works, but of course be cautious of exposed electricals in the back. If successful, replace cover and handset post in reverse of removal. Good luck!

After a days worth of attempting various methods to fix the issue. Ive finally come up with an answer. Lexmark Tech support is terrible.

If you're getting communication errors, you need to full reset the PRINTER and COMPUTER to factory settings and set it up fresh. This means you need to reset every setting on the printers control panel (thats physically on the printer, not in windows) to the factory settings.

Reset to factory
Unplug the printer

Uninstall all instances of lexmark software and drivers
Uninstall any third party scanning software
Restart the computer
For wireless networks, this means changing your WEP key as well. Just to make sure the printers settings have not been stored.

Now plug the printer back in
Run the software setup. And choose setup like its your first time. Youll need your USB cable to correctly set it back up. So get that out.

Follow the prompts of the software. Make sure you get to enter the new WEP key into the lexmark setup wizard.

When the lexmark installer completes, install any third party scanning software that you are using to scan. It should be able to fully communicate with the AIO (all in one) printer now.

You have to understand that anything that Lexmark puts on the market is absolute trash. The company's support is the worst in the world. Their tec's are nothing more than pimply faced juvies with an experience rated just above x-box plug and play. The Lexmark product line consist of the lowest grade electroninc components on the world-wide market. That along with zero trials or experimental market is a mixture for certain disaster. Lexmark products have a life expectancy of one month or most of the time will not even work out of the box. (be ammazed if your does). The factory supplied ink will fail in less than 60 days if you do not use your machine on a regular basis. Lexmark support is below the lowest of the low. Give it a shot before you buy, try to contact them, yes try to contact any of their departments, have your friend contact them, both you and your friend will get the same response from 2 different tec's. You will then be directed towards your zip code and the x-box player tec. How generic. This company sells at sub prime cost. Why ? It's trash.

Figure 1 - Printer paper holder and completed print tray

4. Lift the front cover of the printer and remove the white rubber bar by pulling the blue lever on right towards you.

Figure 2 – Top view of printer showing the white rubber feed bar with purple attachment

6. Flip the front cover open and gently lift the top of the printer cover. Keep front cover open.

7. Remove the ink cartridges out of their carriage.

Figure 6 - Displays ink cartridge carriage with ink cartridges removed.
Caution: Electrical hazard. Keep hand and metal pieces clear of board or any other electrical wires or parts.

NOTICE: The ink cartridges are all the way to one end. If the X4270 is plugged in, the cartridge carrier is stuck and doesn’t move. After further investigation a noticeable small black plastic lever is preventing the ink cartridges from moving. Photo below shows lever up and down (cartridges already moved in image below).

Figure 7 - Shows inside of X4270 and the lever that causes error #1200. Image on left displays lever up. Image on right displays lever down.

8. Push lever down clockwise so it is flush with plastic wall. Refer to image on right in Figure 6.

9. Lift the front cover open (if not already open) and plug in the X4270. Cartridges should move to center as if preparing for replacement.

10. Unplug the X4270 and remove power supply.

11. Remove bottom assembly carefully.

Figure 8 - Displays bottom assembly with lever and spring
Note: The cause of this problem is the spring slides out of place over time, probably because of ink shed on one end of its loop and loop attachment.

Figure 9 - Displays loop attachment

12. Place spring in loop attachment and use hot tip of heated tool to melt top of loop attachment to prevent further errors. Melt top of loop attachment similar of that to a mushroom top.

Figure 10 - Displays fix for jammed carriage.

13. Reattach the lever to the bottom assembly and slide back into place inside the X4270.

14. Plug in and check if operational.

15. Reassemble X4270 using steps 3-7.

I unhooked my Lexmark X4270 printer today as well as my Dell PC when I was setting up my new computer desk. I hooked it back up like I had it (no phone). With just the power cable. That works and the cable from printer that plugs in like a speaker cable and to my PC in a USB port. Now get message will not communicate with pC, no connection. It has worked for better that a year. Help

Bill1229's fix is temporary and caused by the spring being unlatched. Yes it will fix the error for now but it will eventually happen again.
