My printer will not print. it is a z611 lexmark. it says its communicating, but it will not print. the documents are in the printer queue.

try to check if you have connected properly your printer cable into your computer. check if you are using the right port in the printer configuration .

If you are using a windows xp system.
Check the printers and faxes control panel .
right click and click properties.
You can see a panel there in which you can set the default port you are using..
