Perhaps the cable between the printer and the computer has gone bad. Try switching it out with another cable if you have one and see if that resolves your issue.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

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.

Lexmark printing problems


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 (if USB connected)> 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 (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


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

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer 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, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Computer wont recognize printer,power light flashing


The flashing of the power light indicates a problem in the cartridge/s. Try to remove your cartridges from the printer > close the printer cover > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset > when the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first > check the behavior of the power light. If power light does not blink, open the printer cover again and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the power light to blink with a new genuine Lexmark supply.

My Lexmark z2300 sends to the printer & it says it's printing, but it doesn't actually print. I've tried several file types & programs to print from but none of them work.

I just installed two refilled lexmark cartridges color and black yet printer is reading black cartridge missing and color cartridge missing. I am unable to print


Refilled cartridges become unreliable and can damage your printer - you will need to try an original Lexmark cartridge before considering replacing your printer.

The printer will no longer print. It sends the job to the printer and after a couple seconds it disappears
