The port to which the printer is connected is not supported. Check the port


I'm assuming you are using a USB connection, not a Ethernet connection.

Try a different USB port (preferably in the REAR of the computer, not the front). It's not unusual to have 1 or 2 poorly-performing (low power) ports on a PC; some printers don't like those.

If you have a really old computer, it may have ancient USB type "1" (slow) ports instead of the newer 2.0 or 3.0 USB type. Some printers don't like old USB 1 ports, but it is not supposed to matter.

If all else fails, try another USB cord, or a shorter one. Some printers don't work well with cords longer than 4 feet, and USB cords can go bad.

Or, try the printer on another computer. If the same USB cord works fine there, YOUR computer has the problem (probably a USB port or USB driver issue).

Are you having issues with other USB devices? If so, it may be a Windows driver issue.

Good luck. If no help, post your exact printer model # here, or try contacting Lexmark.com support

Many a times the cartridges get empty.There is ink in the cartridges,this ink gets over or many a times dried up.Remove the cartridges and see.There will be a steel color nozzle at the base of cartridge,from where the ink comes out.Touch the tissue paper to that base and see,if there is ink coming out.Actually the ink should come out.There will be two cartridges in the printer.One black and one tri-color.On black cartridge when you touch the tissue paper you will get black ink on tissue.On tri-color cartridge when you touch tissue on its base you will get three colors,that are yellow--- blue and pink.( In printer language its called cyan--- yellow---magenta color).If there is ink in the cartridge then it should print,If you have replace the cartridge,then on its base there is a blue color tape.That tape has to be removed from its base.If the tape is not removed the cartridge will not print.-------- One more thing.Before doing any thing.Just do a self test and see if the cartridges are working. The procedure of self test is as follows:--- " 1) Turn the printer on.2) The power on green light should be steady green,not blinking green. 3) When its steady green at that time.Press the cancel and color button both together. 4) By doing this the green light will flash,and printer will take the paper. 5) On that paper the self test will get printed.But if the printer takes the paper and it comes out empty /blank then its cartridge fault.But if the self test is getting printed,then yes its confirmed that there is communication fault between printer and computer.In this case,replace the usb wire.Try new brand usb wire and see if that is helping.One more thing.When you install the printer driver.At that time never keep the usb wire connected between printer and computer.Only keep one side of usb connected to computer tower.In between the installation procedure.The message will come up on your computer screen" this message reads,connect the usb wire to printer.At that time connect the usb wire".As you connect the usb wire the message will come up on your computer screen.The printer is detected.If this message comes up then only your printer will work.If this message does not comes then,there is any of the three things faulty,that is usb wire,the usb port on printer side or usb port on computer side.If usb wire is faulty you can replace this wire with new and check.Its not a costly wire.But if any of the ports are faulty,then this ports are internally soldered on the main board.This ports needs to be re-soldered.This can be done by any printer/computer repair tech.Its hardly a 10 minute job to re-solder loose usb port. ------------- Try this troubleshooting procedure.This will help. Thanks.Helpmech.

I keep getting message that there is no connection to computer but the cable is plugged in etc


Hi

There are several reasons this is happening. Check the cable on both ends. Make sure there is no sign of damage either in the cable or the computer/printer connector. I see at least one a day where the printer cable is plugged into a damaged USB port. Printer fire wire ports do break off their mother board too. The other possibility is that you're temporarily losing your USB ports on the computer. At Start, goto run and type SFC /scannow. This program will try to reinstall all the original protected files. Have you original operating system disks handy because if SFC finds files missing then it will ask for these disks. Good Luck

WheneveraI try to install my cx8400 when they ask


Then your USB cable is bad or the USB port is not installed properly or the port is bad (or very slightly possible the printer is bad). Narrow it down by trying a different cable, a different port, test the usb port with another device, try the printer on another computer.

My printer doesnt workproperly


I'm assuming you're getting a communication error. This can be caused by a electronic fault in the printer or corrupted printer drivers or corrupted USB ports. To eleimate the ports and drivers do this. Donwload and run Dr. Web, Malware Bytes and Superantispyware. That'll take care of any nusciences. Now goto Start, Run and type SFC /scannow. Be prepared to insert your operating system disk. This will insure we have good USB ports. Now go to Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes. Make sure your printer is listed as the default. If not use Find printer and be prpared to insert your printer's CD. Once we have good drivers and good USB ports, then the only thing left that can cause a communication error is the cable or the printer. Good Luck

External hard drive problem


The problem is that the printer, being a composite device, takes a lot of energy from the computer USB ports. Some computers, such as some Dell computers, have problems with USB ports due to a cheap manufacturing. What I can suggest you is to simply unplug the printer when you want to use the HDD, because no matter what you do, you'll have the same problem and that's because of the computer that won't supply enough power to the USB ports.
Also, if you are using a laptop, remember to keep it plugged to the power so it can provide more energy to the USB ports.
