I just bought a brand new Lexmark x5495 all in one print/scan/copy/fax machine and I have yet to print a single page. I ran the CD and followed the step by step to the letter and it seemed as though it should work. However when I try to print anything form the computer (word document, web page, picture, etc.) I get an error on my computer saying "Problem communicating with the printer". I have followed all the recommended steps such as restarting the computer, unplugging and replugging the printer, re-installing the drivers, updating the drivers, nothing has worked. And on a similar note that may or may not be related, when I select the scan option on the printer it displays the message "Downloading Application List", then after a short while displays "Unable to retrieve Application List".
It is also important to note that I am able to make copies with the printer so the device actually works, it just doesn't seem to communicate at all with the computer. I am connecting via USB and I'm about to go out and replace the USB cable, I will post again if this changes anything.
I appreciate all of your time and effort on these forums (and I'm not just talking to the staff, I mean all of you out there that post suggestions) and any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you again,
