    CANT ENABLE BIDIRECTIONAL COMMUNICATION X4550


    I have tried to set up this wireless printer on my laptop (windows vista basic). I run through installation and get message - installation complete and the green indicator light is fully on. When I try and print I get message Printer cannot communicate with computer - please turn on 'Enable Biodirectional Communication' in printer properties. I go to control panel/printer/propertie/ports/ and I see Enable Biodirectional communication - the box is grayed out and I cannot enable it. Any suggestions?

    The error code says the printer cartridge is stalled. It makes a loud clicking noise, and the cartridge keeps going back and forth.

    Brother dcp 8060 reinstall paper tray error message


    Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
    Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
    Hope this helps. Bud

    Lexmark x4580 connected via USB will allow printing once when computer started after that comuunication problem error received every time. I have checked all firewall settings on Mcaffee and Windows (all...


    1) Disable both firewalls and see if it prints.
    2) If it prints, then it's a firewall roblem. Enable your Windows firewall first. If your printer works just leave the McAfee firewall disabled. You don't need both anyway but leave the ant-virus enabled.
    3) If it doesn't print with your Windows firewall enabled, try it the other way. Windows firewall disabled, McAfee enabled.
    4) If it doesn't print in any of these cases try re-installing the software for your printer.You will want to make sure that McAfee is totally disabled (anti-virus and firewall) and turn off off your Windows firewall. Here are the steps for re-installing software. If you don't have the cd let me know and I'll provide you with a link for it.
    Removing and reinstalling the software
    If the printer is not functioning properly, or if a communications error message appears when you try to use the
    printer, you may need to remove and reinstall the printer software.

    1 Click Start �� Programs or All Programs �� Lexmark 3500-4500 Series.
    2 Select Uninstall.
    3 Follow the instructions on the computer screen to remove the printer software.
    4 Restart the computer before reinstalling the printer software.
    5 Click Cancel on all New Hardware Found screens.
    6 Insert the CD, and then follow the instructions on the computer screen to reinstall the software.
    Note: If the install screen does not appear automatically after you restart your computer, click Start �� Run, and
    then type D:\setup, where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive.

    If this fixes your problem please rate this as fixed. If it doesn't and you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you out' I'll be waiting to see how it turns out. Thanks.
