Download the most up to date drivers for your printer. You can find these drivers at the manufacturer's website (i.e. www.hp.com for HP printers) by typing in your model number. Once you have these updated drivers, uninstall the printer and reinstall with the new drivers.

Go to the Control Panel (Start button, then select Control Panel)
Select Printers icon
Right-Click on your printer and select Delete

How you re-install your printer depends on the type of file you downloaded. Some manufacturers provide an installation package that handles the installation for you. If this is the case, simply double-click on the file you downloaded and follow the prompts. If not, select "Add Printer" in the printers window and follow the prompts. When it asks for drivers, select "Have Disk" and point to the folder where you downloaded the drivers to.

Hope this helps.

When i try to print something a window pops up that says "communication not available" ive tried restarting, unpluging the power cord and the usb cord...nothing seems to work


This problem could be caused by several factors - incorrect USB port selection, your printer is not set as your default printer, firewall, etc. This article in the Lexmark website: Communication Not Available' Error Message and Print Job Stalls in Print Queue will help you determine the cause and resolve your printing issue.

My HP C3180 printer has unprinted data stored in it. How can I delete all this data without printing it ?? Thanks,


What i would suggest would be to reset your printer:

***Perform a hard reset***

Follow these steps to reset the product.
-Turn the power off.
-Unplug the power cord and the data cable from the product.
-Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
-Reconnect the power cord to the product and wall outlet, and then turn the power on.
-Print a self-test page again and check the print speed.
-If the test page prints in about 30 seconds, the reset has corrected the issue. If that does not resolve your problem, check the link below and follow it as per your issue.

Good luck,
Rodrick

Go into the control panel and open printers and hardware. Look to see if your printer has a black checkmark next to it signifying that it is the default printer. If not, right click on it and select "make this my default printer".

Paper jam


Hi Good day!! Follow this method to remove your paper jam:

1. Check to make sure that the power cord is securely plugged into an active wall outlet if your printer is not turning on.

2. Make sure that the USB cable connecting your computer to your printer is securely connected if your printer powers on but will not perform a print job.

3. Remove a paper jam if the "Check Paper" light on the front of the printer is blinking. To do this, first turn off the printer and unplug the power cord from the printer. Open the front cartridge door and locate the jammed paper. Gently pull the jammed paper toward you. Plug the printer back in and turn it back on.

4. Connect your printer to a different USB port on your computer if you are experiencing slow printing. The slowness could be due to a connection problem with your computer's USB port. After you've switched the port, try your print job again.

5. Make sure that a phone line is securely connected from a phone jack to your printer if you are having trouble sending or receiving faxes.

6. Clean the scanner surface if your scans are blurry or have vertical white or black lines. To do this, spray the a soft, lint-free cloth with a mild glass cleaner. Wipe the scanner glass with the cloth and then dry it with another clean lint-free cloth.

7. Hard reset the printer if you are having trouble solving your problem. Turn the printer off and remove the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least 15 seconds and plug the cord back in. Power the printer on and try your job again.

8. Restart your computer if you can't solve your printing or scanning job. Sometimes restarting the computer can solve an unseen problem.

Offline and blinking lights


A couple suggestions. Unplug the usb cable from the pc to the printer, make sure there is no paper jammed in the machine, unplug the machine from the wall and see if you can move the print head left to right freely. If nothing is obstructing it plig the power cord in with out the usb cord plugged in. See if the machine goes to ready. If all of these fail, that means the main board has been damaged by a power surge, and it would be cheaper to replace the machine than repair it. Good luck!
