Try first doing a system restore to a date before you starting with this problem.

To do system restore go to
Start button>>Programs>>Accessories>>System tools>>System restore.

If thet does not work test the USB cable first.

If you find no problem reinstall printer drivers from the disk that came with the printer.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

My 9500 series Lexmark won't print, computer says its not communication


1. Check your printer to be sure your printer is listed as installed

2. If the print queue is full it can become confused and just hang up so turn off the printer to empty the queue

3. Power up the printer and send one document to print as a test

4. If the printer works, you should be back in business

Put brand new lexmark 28 cartridge just 4 days ago. Maybe used 10 times. Computer says ink is low and won't print anymore. However, can still make copies.


It could be just a slight communication failure between your cartridges and the printer. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting them into the cartridge carrier.
I hope this helps.

"Communication Not Available" message is displayed


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. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.

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 again, then try to print again.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at . Select your operating system, download and execute the file.


If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Keeps pausing job won't print. also won't scan... "can't load application" scans only to flashdrive.


Your firewall could be blocking some printer communications. Make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark and printer communications in the program rules/permissions for your firewall. For more information on how to configure the settings for your firewall, visit the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/iNwkNs.

Printer stoped printinting


Hello there,

I think the correct printer is not selected on your computer. All you need to do is to go to Start > ControlPanel > Printers & Faxes > and check if you see multiple printers over there. If you do see multiple entries then right click on your lexmark printer and then select "Set as default printer" Once this is done, you can try printing a document to see if that works! In case if it still fails to print, you can try selecting the other printers listed in the printer & faxes folder as the default one and try printing. If you are still not able to print, I would suggest you to try uninstalling the program > restart your computer and then install the software once again.

Merry Christmas
