'Communication Not Available' message when printer cable connect

The above message appears even though printer is connected correctly via cable and printer status is ready. All other PC's in the house can print without problem.
I have disconnected and reconnected the USB cable, turned the printer off and on, and disabled my firewall. Any suggestions?

With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

The port to which the printer is connected is not supported. How can solve this problem


Get the latest drivers from:
Canon SENSYS LBP2900
Make sure all cables are correctly attached. If via network, then check connections at the network switch or router.
Try connecting directly by USB cable.

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.

Hi,

With that, you need to install the printer into your windows 7 computer and windows vista computer.
Even though the printer is installed into your windows xp computer wirelessly and set up as shared printer, you still need to install it on to your other computer because you need to install the driver and other printer's software to maximize the features.

Since the printer is already connected, you just need to run the appropriate installation package, the one that's compatible with your Operating System, and install it via Wireless or via Network. For the correct installation package. You can download it from the hp website and check the Support and Driver's section.

Cheers!

I am trying to access an HP 1200 psc over a home network


Have you set up the printer to be shared via the network? You can usually set this up in printer options, through control panel. If the wifi is a closed network, so much the better. That way, nobody else can use the printer. You should be able to do this easily, as long as both computers are connected to the wireless network.

My printer is not printing and give error message like ''communication error''. Is it because the cable is too long? I am using 10 ft now


Cable length has nothing to do with it. It may even be on the computer side as corrupt driver installation etc. Make sure the cable connections are correct. uninstall the device from the device manager and reinstall.
