USB printer ? USB mouse ?
I would uninstall the printer and reinstall as you did when installing the first time - ie install the software first, and only attach the printer when the installation routine says so. The computer is perhaps trying to attach the printer to the wrong port, ie parallel or serial instead of USB. In that case, create a 'new' USB port when you go to re-install. Good luck.

Have not got manual for the lexmark interpret s405, so do not understanding controls. Also the printer keeps printing cannot stop it?


You can access the User's Guide from your computer. Just click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > View User's Guide.

If your printer keeps on printing the same document, there might be a lot of print jobs in your queue. You might have sent the same print jobs when you were getting the communication error. Just click on Start > Printers and Faxes > Double click on the Lexmark icon and clear the print jobs in the queue.

If you're frequently experiencing problems communicating with your Lexmark printer, if your printer is connected to your network, make sure that it's getting a good signal from the router. You might also want to update the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

I loaded my Lexmark X6180 printer with the software, and the installation went fine to the finish. But I get a communications error message "cannot communicate." What shall I do to fix?


What is the operating system installed on your 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. Rebrick (pull out 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 again, then try to print again.



You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website.



If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Lexmark Z2000 doesn't communicate with computer


Sounds like it is stuck in "Power Save" mode. Try unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in again. That usually fixes this one...
