You may have to remove power from the printer and disconnect the data cable, then reconnect the data cable and apply power to effectively "reset" it. Check the device list at the computer to determine whether the printer is active.

SOURCE: Lexmark X1150 only prints first page

I have an x4550, running windows vista basic on an hp dv6000t notebook. i had the same problem. i contacted online lexmark tech and here's the solution that worked for me, thanks to help from lexmark (transcript of chat):

Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:
1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."
3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.
4. This is the spool format setting. It should be set to the default to "LEMF." Change it to "Lexmark." Under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.

SOURCE: Lexmark X2500 is giving Bidirectional communication error message

Make sure that the "Enable Bidirectional Support" checkbox is checked: Go to "Control Panel"->Printers->Right click on the print Object->Properties under "Ports" tab, enable this check box if not already enabled. If you using vista make sure you do this from an "Admin" account, you may also need to select the "Run as Administrator" option after you right click on the "PrintObject".

Put brand new lexmark 28 cartridge just 4 days ago. Maybe used 10 times. Computer says ink is low and won't print anymore. However, can still make copies.


It could be just a slight communication failure between your cartridges and the printer. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting them into the cartridge carrier.
I hope this helps.

Paper is caught in the "coming out" process. It was printing alright and then got caught up . Igot that one out but second sheet went down before I could stop it. I can't even see the paper...


Turn it off, and open the printer as much as you can. Then pull the paper out.

If there is a door in the back of the printer, try opening that, and pulling the paper from there.

After that, you might want to try and print a test page.

My Lexmark x3550 only prints one page of multiple pages. I've checked my print setting and it all looks correct. I'm also having problems scanning and copying. It's a fairly new machine as I hardly use...


Try to reset your printer factory default settings. Press Settings button -> Defaults -> Set Defaults -> Use Factory -> press Check. You will be asked to setup your printer settings like you're setting it up the first time - set the time and date, etc. When done, unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to refresh the printer.

I have the Lexmark X2670 and a couple days ago I scanned a document. Now I am not able to print anymore, I have items waiting to print when I check the printer, but the printer continues to print out...


Reset your printer by unplugging the power adapter from it(small black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached). Wait for at least 10 seconds before plugging the power adapter back in the printer.
Clear the print queue first before sending another print job. Follow the steps below:

I have had this printer for over a year and it has worked flawlessly until about 3 weeks ago and now it takes about 2 minutes after I click on print for the printer to activate. Any suggestions?


If your X3550 prints OK when it does start, perhaps the selection for printing immediately when receiving a print job has been changed to printing after entire print job has spooled.

This selection can usually be toggled between these two choices.
