I loaded my Lexmark X6180 printer with the software, and the installation went fine to the finish. But I get a communications error message "cannot communicate." What shall I do to fix?

What is the operating system installed on your computer?

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 again, then try to print again.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website.

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

    E191 There is an error in the communication with the high-voltage power supply.
    E191-0000 The data transmission/reception does not end
    normally 500 msec after the most recent
    transmission/reception of data ended normally.
    Replace the high-voltage power supply. Replace the

    Yes this may be the trick for it.

    Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

    1 - try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
    2 - when error shows up, shut the printers power off; wait one minute and turn it back on press copy.

    I have a lexmark t644 printer and have an error code of 900.44 any ideas on how to fix this

    1. If the printer is currently displaying a 900 RIP Software error, power off the printer and leave it powered off for 20 seconds or more. Doing this will clear the printer's memory.
    2. While the printer is off, clear any pending print jobs from the computer or the network queue. This will prevent any corrupted print jobs from being sent to the printer again when it is powered back on.
    3. Power the printer back on.
    4. If the printer goes to the Ready status, try printing again.
    5. If the 900 RIP Software error returns when the printer is powered up or when you try to print, there is a problem with either the printer, the communication cable connecting the printer to the computer, or with the print job itself. Follow the directions below to check each of these components.
      • If the error appears every time you power on the printer, regardless of whether you send a print job or not, the likely source of the problem is the printer or an option installed on the printer.
      • If the error appears only when you send print jobs to the printer, the likely source of the problem is the computer, a setting on the printer, or one of the communication cables.
