I have the same problem and I have exhausted all options that I can think of. Last night I reset the network settings for the printer and started over and at the end, after going through the whole wizard again, it spit out a new network page and looked like the problems were fixed. (was now on channel 11,used to be on 6, also said it was connected to the wireless network when before it said it was not). I got excited thinking it had finally connected, but when I went to print a test page I got the same communication problem error message. I just got off the phone with Lexmark Support and he told me it was most likely printing to the wrong port. When I go to my printers properties page, it is printing to USB001 (Lexmark virtual printer port), and he told me it needs to be on "Lexmark 1400 Series" port. I will try to create a new port tonight and hopefully I have "Lexmark 1400 Series" as an option to choose from.

Jeez this thing is exhausting. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy and I have wasted 4 nights working on this thing to no avail. How do people who don't know their way around a computer handle wifi printing to the 1420??

Hello Becky

There could be a security feature on the printer that requires that you enable the Ethernet port at the printer's control panel 1st. I've seen this w/ printers and All-In-Ones that have a wireless-capable.

HERE is a link to HP's info, downloads, FAQs, etc on this printer.

Depending upon your LAN configuration (on the router), you may need to at least change the subnet mask on the printer if not assign it a static IP so it doesn't conflict w/ any other devices on your LAN using DHCP. (1st, of course, you'll need to get the Ethernet port enabled on the printer)

HERE's the User Guide for your printer. Go to page 29 to find the network configuration instructions.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

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

SOURCE: prints photos with yellow horizontal stripes.Hv downloaded HP printing diagnostic utility and no errors were reported. If just using scanner to copy photos, prints fine but copying photos in library p

go into the printer and do a test print. start>printer & faxes>right click on the printer in question>properties>printer preference button> test print ... try the printer's own test print. This is usually caused by a poor print head, low ink, poor cartridge or the need for calibration. Look in the maintenance tab in the printer properties for head cleaner, jet cleaner etc. This also happens with refill ink cartridges.

Try turning your printer off, then turning it back on. This usually helps, also you could try to make sure that your connection with the your computer is stable.

So, I have no idea how to use my photo scanner, it is a little annoying, it keeps saying "down loading application list" and then stops working...

Hi,

Turn all the software for this device off. Check processes in task manager & your system tray, bottom right on screen. Then try to scan using windows built in image acquisition software.
Let me know how this goes.

Thanks,

Adam.

Are the ink cartridges interchangable between the lexmark 4650 and the 4690? They certainly appear identical in every aspect.


Hello. The only common cartridge the X4650 and the X4690 uses is the #31 photo color print cartridge. Other cartridges for the printers are non-interchangeable. For your reference, you can click on this links to the Lexmark website. http://bit.ly/asi8dB and http://bit.ly/bvNeOa . First link shows you compatible cartridges for Lexmark X4650 and the second link is for Lexmark X4690. Hope this helps.
