1 Answer

Try updating the printer's firmware. I had the same problem with my Windows XP machine and my Kodak 5500 AiO Printer. Then, I went to Kodak's website, looked for my printer, and downloaded their firmware update. The only curious thing is that when I ran the software to update the printer, it said the firmware version of the update was the same as the firmware version the printer already had. I went ahead and updated anyway, and now it works!
Just be careful when updating the firmware on your printer, follow Kodak's intructions.

I have just bought a new computer with Windows 7 as my o/s. I cannot get it to detect my Pixma MP830 printer.


How can the computer detect the printer if you have not loaded the software. Therefore insert the CD which came with the printer and load the software/driver.

Doesn't recognize the USB cable anymore. I have replacexd it twice and it won't let me install the printer.


There's a big chance here that the problem is not with the USB cable but with the USB port of your computer or with the printer itself, first that you can do here is to try connecting the printer on a different SUB port on your computer and check if it will be detected now by he computer but if still not better if you can try this printer to a different computer and check if it will be detected because if it will be detected on different computer so the problem is with the USB port of your computer.
In a point that the printer will still not be detected by different computer so the problem here is with the printer itself and the printer needs servicing already.

Cannot print from computer. printer will print test pages, though


How the printer is connected to PC Via USB or using Network Cable. If it is connected Netwrok cable than printer configuration page and on netwrok configuration there will be IP Address if this is valid IP Address than reinstall drivers and upgrade the Firmware of the printer.

If Printer is connected USB than try different USB Cable and try different USB Port on the computer
If USB port on the computer is working fine and check in Device Manager if the printer has detected as unknown device or not detected at all.
If detected as unknown device than reinstall printer driver if not detected at all than USB Port on the printer is faulty you need to set up hardware repair of the printer.

Is hooked up to computer but says it not hooked op to computer will no print off computer


this could be a communication problem.

you need to make sure that the cable that you are hooking up is the one that came with the printer,also you may need to plug the cable into a different port and check if the computer detects it.

{take intensive care in case you follow these steps. }
there is an entry for USB printing support
and USB composite device in the device manager under USB devices, if you remove these entries. the computer will start detecting the plug and play device and hence will detect the printer.

Just got a computer with Vista I downloaded my lexmark X1155 driver. it shows as the default. when I attempt to print it says can not communicate with printer. Checked usb cable and connection. restarted...


As usb is devices is ready detected by vista and its confirm the registry for the device and its not detected while loading driver
suggested to remove the usb cable and remove the previous driver information reinstall the driver without connecting the printer and power on the printer aftre driver is loaded and it will be detected by system
can also check the same procedure with different computer for testing , as the port is working ok at printer end
