My printer is not communicating with my computer it is with my phone thou.


If it is communicating with your phone you are on a Blue Tooth connection. You most likely will have to hook up your computer by Blue Tooth as well. I don't know what type of printer you have but you may have an option to set up both types of connections but it will be in the printer menu under set up/wireless/network

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.

Trust this is helpful.

Scan was not successful


Try a new USB cable. Directly connect the printer to the computer if using a hub or print server. Try plugging the unit into a different USB port. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and are much more sensitive to anything that may interfere with that communication.

Do you hear any sounds that indicate that the light source is warming up and moving in the unit? Check if the scanner has a travel/shipping lock and unlock it. If it isn't moving, then you may need to service the unit.

I hope this helps.

Do the following:

Try a different usb cable.

Plug the cable into a different USB port.

Try disconnecting printer power cable for ten minutes.

Unplug computer power cord for ten minutes and restart.

Reinstall printer drivers.

If that all did not work, test the printer on a different computer, to find out if it is faulty or not.

It just won't print!


try to make un-install drivers for the printer, then reboot and install driver agin.
I think, it might be your driver currepted and cause this problem.
