Hi how are you

Download the printer driver from the manufacturer web site. Follow their user guide.

If you can, connect the printer in another PC. If it works, then your PC is the problem. If problem still exists, then cable, driver or printer is the problem.

There are hardware and software issues with regard to problems between the PC and the printer. Here are some of them:

1. Some manufacturers (e.g. HP) require attaching the printer only when the printer installer advises you to do so. It may not work if you already attached the printer before told to do so.
2. Some files in the installed printer may be damaged so you have to reinstall the printer driver.
3. Your cables (printer and power) may not be seated firmly at the terminals. You need then to remove and reinsert them.
4. Your printer cartridge, which is a very sensitive electronically, can be damaged upon installation. You should remove the power cable when you install it to prevent damaging the sensitive electrical components. Even if there is ink in it, if the electrical circuits are damaged, it wouldn't work.
5. You may not have set your printer to the printer you are using as default. You can check by clicking Start, Printers and Faxes, and choose your default printer.

I hope that helps.

Lx300+II commucation error

That's not adequate info for us to help. What is the communication error message and when does it occur? How is it connected to the pc, ie: parallel port? What BIOS setting do you have the parallel port set to? ie: standard, enhanced, other? Are you using a good quality printer cable, ie: high compliance IEEE? Have you tried another cable? Has the printer ever worked? What is your OS?

You should provide details when asking for help!

Printer not commucating

It actually depends on what connection you have between the printer and computer. If you are using the standard usb cable, just delete the printer icon, unplug the printer, reboot the computer and replug the printer, this should be automatically detected.
