Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer

1 Answer

Communication error When I try to print through the network it says "Check all cable connections and make sure the printer is on. Make sure that the printer is in print mode." I have my printer plugged into a router which is also plugged into the network and my computer, but can't seem to communicate with my printer. Any ideas?

HI-

How did you add the printer to your computer, try downloading the software for it. If there is any from support.epson.com site. check the port ID of the printer as well from printers and faxes then Epson properties and ports, it should be IP address for ports.

Hope this helps

My Hp office-jet Pro X576 printer is connected via a network and if l send a print job it displays printer error switch off machine and the printer restarts .if l use usd it works fine


I would ensure that you have the current firmware installed on the printer and make sure that you are sending the job via network with a correct driver. If you manually set the IP address on your computer and the printer you should be able to connect direct using a crossover cable, I do that in the shop all the time.

F9-88 code on arm317


F9-88 = Print PCB to Main MFP Board Comm Timeout

You can clear this by turning your copier off and then on. Try turning it back on with the network cable unplugged, run your machine, then plug the network cable back in. If the error code comes back, its: 1) bad network cable 2) ungrounded electrical plug for copier or router 3) noise on network line 4) copier needs firmware update 5) replace the print board

Printer will not communicate with the computer


1. Walk over to the printer and print a test page directly. The procedure for printing a test page will vary from model to model, so you may need to consult the user guide that came with your printer. For most network printers, you can print a test page by navigating the "Information" menu on the control panel and choosing "Print Configuration" from the menu. For many desktop printers, you can print a test page by holding the power button until the page begins to print. If you can print a test page from the printer, but not from the computer, you know there is a communication problem between the printer and the PC.


2. Remove the printer cable from the back of your printer and the back of your computer. After the cable has been removed, carefully put the cable back into place, making sure that the printer cable is tight. If your printer uses a parallel cable, be sure that it is fully seated on the back of the printer and on the computer. If you are using a USB cable for your printer, be sure that the tab is fully seated in the computer, and that the square end of the cable is firmly connected to the printer.


3. Power down the printer, the restart your computer. Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu. Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon, locate your printer, right-click on it and choose "Properties" from the menu. Click on the "Print Test Page" button to send a test page to your printer.


4. Look at the network card on your network printer to see if there is good communication between the printer and the network. You should see a flashing green light on the network card. If there is no light--or if the light is amber or red--the communication is not happening. To test the network communication, remove the network cable from both the network cable and the network port on the wall, then reseat the cable and check the communication again. If the problem remains, you will need to remove and replace the printer's network card.

My lexmark x6650 printer will not connect back online


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. If your printer is connected via USB cable to your computer, simply disconnect the printer from your computer, reboot your pc and unplug/re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When everything turns back on, reconnect the printer into the pc. Wait for the computer to fully recognize the USB connection. Try to print again.
If you're printer is wirelessly connected to your computer through your wireless network, please refer to this article for a more comprehensive instructions on how to identify and fix the communication problem - Wireless & Network Communication Issues with 2008 Lexmark Inkjet Products

Command error on epson 9600


Are you sure it is a 'command error' and not a 'communication error'. I could not find anything on a 'command error' but did find this on a 'communication error'.


Q: Why am I getting a communication error when I try to print?

A: Check the following if you are getting a communication error when printing:

Make sure the type of driver you installed matches the ink type in the printer. Verify the ink type by checking the part number on the ink cartridges.

Make sure the printer interface setting matches the connection type you're using. By default, the printer interface should be set to Auto, which supports all connection types.

Check the physical cable connection and make sure the cable is not be longer than 10 ft. You may want to replace the cable.

You may also get communication errors if the printer name is not set correctly. Contact EPSON at (888) 377-6611 or (562) 276-1305 to get instructions on how to verify this.


You might want to check to see if you have the current drivers for your printer and operating system; a new driver can be downloaded here.

Keep getting the error message "Printer not responding".


How are you connecting the printer to the computer? (USB, parallel, ethernet) Make sure there are no error messages/lights blinking and that the unit is on.

If you are using an USB cable, try a new cable. Also try a direct connection if you have a USB hub or print server in use. Make sure the USB ports are active (not disabled for power saving or security). Test the port with a known working device.

If you are using the parallel cable, make sure it is properly secured. Also try a new cable. Again try a direct connection instead of a print server.

If you are using an ethernet connection, again try a new cable. Check if your firewall is blocking communication with the printer. (Test this by temporarily turning off the firewall. If it starts working, make the printer a trusted part of the network. With some firewalls, you may need to unblock communication for both incoming and outgoing communication with the printer.)

I hope this helps.

I have a Canon BJC 80 InkJet Printer. I have it connected to my laptop using a parallel USB cable. The problem I'm having is that whenever I try to print anything, it will sit there for about 5 minutes...


I could be wrong but it sounds like a communication error between your laptop and the printer, I would check that your Canon is compatible with being connected via a USB to parallel cable. If you're running a network you could install the printer onto a PC that has a parallel connection output and then share the printer. More info can be found at this link.

Printer communication error


check the network cable... disconnect the network cable and ping the copier... if you can get the copier IP address to respond... then you have an IP conflict... if you plug the network cable back in... turn the copier off and on and still cann't print from any pc... then reset the copier... if you still cannt print from any pc then you need to try changing the IP address... and try again... still doesn't work... change the network cable and try again... still doesn't work... plug a laptop into the network cable and ping the laptop... if the laptop works... the print card is bad...

I have a lexmark t644 printer and have an error code of 900.44 any ideas on how to fix this


  1. If the printer is currently displaying a 900 RIP Software error, power off the printer and leave it powered off for 20 seconds or more. Doing this will clear the printer's memory.
  2. While the printer is off, clear any pending print jobs from the computer or the network queue. This will prevent any corrupted print jobs from being sent to the printer again when it is powered back on.
  3. Power the printer back on.
  4. If the printer goes to the Ready status, try printing again.
  5. If the 900 RIP Software error returns when the printer is powered up or when you try to print, there is a problem with either the printer, the communication cable connecting the printer to the computer, or with the print job itself. Follow the directions below to check each of these components.
    • If the error appears every time you power on the printer, regardless of whether you send a print job or not, the likely source of the problem is the printer or an option installed on the printer.
    • If the error appears only when you send print jobs to the printer, the likely source of the problem is the computer, a setting on the printer, or one of the communication cables.
