How do I get my printer to communicate with my computer


If you have the software then this is easy. For the setup, plug your printer into your computer and run the software. It will find the printer and prompt you to set it up wirelessly. Go through and answer all of the prompts and it will be complete. At that point you can disconnect the cable and run it wirelessly on your network or Bluetooth.

The top left "hinge" won't seat, therefore the top feed can't be used to fax, scan or copy.


It's possible that the hinge of the scanner cover broke. If that's the case, you won't be able to scan from the ADF (Auto Document Feeder). If the printer is still under warranty, please call our technical support team to have the printer replaced.

Computer cannot communicate with printer


Check if your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If there's an error message on your screen that your black ink is low even if you replaced it, you won't be able to print or scan. It will send a busy signal or communication not available to your computer. If this is the case, replace the cartridge.

If it still doesn't work work, try to reinstall the software: http://bit.ly/d3ftso

HP USB Modem does not break dial tone


If the information connected to your post is all correct (56k V90 usb), and you are using one line for both the internet and the fax, you should hang up from the internet before you try to dial out the fax.

You have not indicated your PC model, so I don't know what operating system you are using. For XP and newer versions, you have to set up and configure the fax using the wizard or configuration software. If you have not done that yet, you need to.

In xp, go to start, Programs , Accessories , Communication , Fax , and then click Fax Console.

You said your computer is new. Win 7 and Vista are much the same:

1.Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.

2.At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

3.Click Connect to a fax modem and follow the instructions.


You also need to make sure that your fax/modem is correctly listed in the control panel. In XP, start, control panel, printers and devices. If you do not have a fax printer listed, you need to "install a local fax printer."

The installation wizard should work in both OS without much trouble. If you do have difficulty, Microsoft and adobe both have "virtual printers" you can use. Look in Microsoft office or online.

Also check control panel of 7 to make sure that your modem and fax are listed correctly. Thanks for using Fixya.

Unable to send out faxes..


Hi ammity,

It really sounds like a driver issue that your having. HERE a site that is the manufacture of the modem/fax, and they have a modem central that gives assistance to problem modems/fax's. You will need to agree to the acceptance, but they might solve your problem. The other thing that you can do, is faxing from your cable modem as well. There are all kinds of programs that allow faxing via the internet. And since you make it FixYa, you can fax through the router and forget the ol'e fax modem.

Good Luck

Mark
