The printer needs to be connected to the wall outlet, and to the computer. That means you need two cords: a power adapter (to wall outlet), and a USB cable (to computer). You also need printer drivers installed. Those come with the printer, on a CD. The printer generally needs to be powered ON for the computer to recognize it.

Canon pixma 922 won.t print..computer says not printer not responding also says printer in error state..no printer codes showing


Depends on if you have it set up correctly for proper port config. Is it set up for USB or LPT? Check it out with PRINTERS showing printer details on driver etc.

Cannot print off computer. says not connected. got a replacement used printer on ebay.same model . worked ok on my previous printer ?


Could be the printer is faulty or the lead. I have never found epson printers to be much use and have learned the hard way to avoid secondhand ones.
If it is a dual drive you could try using a parallel port and 2-way lead but usb is generally reliable and if your computer says the printer isn't there it is probably because it really isn't.
If the "found new hardware" wizard doesn't show up when it is plugged in...

You could try uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling it before actually connecting the printer but I advise against optimism.

Won't print. Power is on, cable attached, computer says it is going to print. Says there is no 2 way communication between the printer and ?


You must firmly insert the cables that connects b/w PC and printer or buy new connector. Or, you may reinstall the driver..

Why won't my printer print after I installed the software? It says its ready but nothing will print


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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


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

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc 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, then try to print/scan again.

The green power light keeps blinking and it won't print, it says it is not getting a connection


Thank you for using fixya.com.

The computer is not detecting your printer. Here's what you need to do:

1. Check all the connections or Reset the connection between your computer and your printer.
2. Press and hold the power button of your printer for 5 seconds to do a power cycle. The printer will turn off.
3. Turn it back on.
4. Print something.

If no go,

1. Uninstall and reinstall the driver of your printer. You can access the driver in Control Panel>Add and Remove Programs. After un installing the driver, put the disc of your printer into your computer's DVD player. Follow the onscreen instructions.

2. Print Something.

If no go, let me know by posting in this thread.

Thank you,

My cannon pixma MP150 just won,t print or do anything, it is connected to the computer alright & the computer says that it is connected but it just won,t print or scan, can you please suggest anything...


probably you need to download the driver for windows 7 in the canon website.(www.canon.com.sg) if this doesnt solve your problem check the led and display of your printer. if the led blinks alternately in orange and green it means that your printer needs to be brought to an authorized service center for resetting and diagnostic.
