Why doesn't my printer communicate with m,y computer?


Try uninstalling and reinstalling or doing a repair. Make sure you have your install cd handy. You can uninstall or repair by going to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers. Then right click on the printer and either troubleshoot or remove the printer all together.

The ink system failure is a pain to troubleshoot. It could mean that the ink cartridges are not communicating with the print head, the print head is bad or the entire printer needs service.

Try resetting the printer to clear the error from memory:
First with the printer on, unplug the USB cable (if using one) from the printer (and the computer).. Then remove all of the ink cartridges from the printer (lift the scanner unit as if to change the ink). Wait for the printer to indicate "Insert ink cartridge). Then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. (Note: do not turn off the printer just disconnect the power cord.) I also disconnect the power cord from the outlet and the power adapter (this resets the adapter). Wait 60 seconds or longer. Then reconnect the power cord to the printer, the adapter and then the outlet. Turn on the printer if it doesn't turn on on its own. Reinsert the ink cartridges and close the printer. Print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally reconnect the USB cable. Try printing again.

If the message repeats, the unit needs service. This printer doesn't allow the user to service the print head so the cost for servicing is variable. If the printer is under warranty, contact HP for service. Otherwise decide if it is worth the cost of service (expect a minimum charge of $50 just to determine the problem.)

I hope this helps.

Not communicating with computer


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My printer will not print. I can scan images but nothing happens when I go to print a document. There is no box that comes up that states there is a problem.


Your firewall could be blocking the print communication. The article below will guide you on how to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.
