I had a similar problem with Lexmark 3500 - 4500 series. I found that when Norton was disabled, the document printed. After soem further dicking around, I figures if you configure firewall setting to low, then docs print OK. Give it a whirl & see how you get on....worked for me. (I do think Lexmark are **** though.....!!!!)

My brother DCP-J140W won't scan. It keeps saying check connection but it is printing okay. Please help!


How is the all-in-one connected to your computer? The problem usually means that you do not have bi-directional communication between the printer and the computer.

If it is connected to your wireless network, did you ensure that the firewall allows the communication? (Some firewalls will automatically add the correct ports to the allowed list during the install of the full software.) For other firewall software or the less-complete install of the software drivers, you need to make sure that the port, 54925 , are allowed to access your computer for inbound and outbound network data. If adding that port is insufficient to allow scans to have bi-directional communication with the printer, also add port 137 (inbound and outbound). Since this step depends on your firewall, please add a comment with the firewall software on your computer. This is in the note in the Scanning section of the Brother Software User's manual for the DCP-J140W on page 35. This manual is available here: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc002923/dcp140w_use_soft.pdf . An example of setting the Firewall rules for the Windows Firewall is shown starting on page 85 of the manual.

If your computer is connected to the printer via a USB cable, try a different (possibly shorter 6' or less) USB cable or a different port. If you have the printer connected to a USB hub, skip the hub and directly connect to the computer. Check if other devices work at the USB ports. Sometimes ports do fail; either they can't maintain the needed voltage or they don't keep the cable and pins properly aligned.

I hope this helps.

(I have seen the communication issues with stand-alone scanners as well. I saved a perfectly good scanner from the trash when the user failed to check if the scanner worked with other ports.)

I,m running windows7 and using a lexmarl X7170 printer i keep getting a can not communicate message i've uninstalled and reinstalled several time HELP


Check your cables and ports. The most frequent issue is a bad cable so try a new one. Next try plugging into a different port. If you have a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection. (Scanning is more sensitive to a problem with the connection but the printer can also have issues.)

Check if a known working device works in the computer. (You may want to check if the USB ports are powering down for security or power savings. Check the device manager for the first and the advanced settings from the Screen Saver for the second.)

I hope this helps.

I have tried a 'spare' LAN connection in the office but my pc will not connect to the network. Does the port require activating?


The port shouldn't need 'Activated'. If you are trying to connect using a 'spare' port in the wall, the wall socket may need 'patched' in to the network to allow your computer to communicate through it.

If you are connecting directly to the router/switch/network hub, it may possibly be an upload port you've connected to (a port used to connect one hub to another or to the main network). There is sometimes a switch next to the port to change it to a normal port, alternatively try selecting a different port to see if your computer will connect.

How do you hook up a Dynex Ethernet Hub


If your hub has 4 or 5 connectors, connect one port to your router. This device will NOT work when connected to your cable modem, as the hub does not manage IP addresses like a router does. Hope this helps ... the remaining ports will feed internet, but not provide Internet addresses to a computer.

4 port USB hub not working...


Try connecting the hub to another USB port. You may even connect this same device to another computer and check if that works. This will help isolate the issue better.

I just put new ink Cartridges but still wont print


Hello,

Most of the time the "problem communicating with the printer" message pops up on Lexmark X1185 series when the driver gets corrupted. The best fix for this issue would be to uninstall the software first. Try connecting the USB to a different USB port (Please avoid using USB hubs, if any) and then reinstall the software. This should normally fix the printer communication issues!

Good Luck

Installing USB Hub


After installing the USB controller card into a PCI slot inside your computer, connect the 4 port hub to it with the supplied cable. (at the back of the computer)
Do not connect the DVD Recorder to the old usb ports. They will still work, but obviously not 2.0.

Connecting the power supply for the hub is optional, but usually a good idea.

If your computer still doesn't recognize the hub, make sure you have all of the latest windows updates and try running Add New Hardware in control panel. Also, just unplugging the hub and plugging it back in will sometimes work. Use a different port on the controller card if necessary.

As a last resort, you may need to disable the onboard usb controller through your system bios.

Good Luck
