Best to un-install the printer drivers, softwares related to this printer. Go to Canon.com and download the latest drivers and software. Connect the printer to the computer and let the computer recognise it and then install the drivers from your download. You can also check if there is any damage to the cable as this could also stop the communication between the computer and printer.

Any number of possible reasons why the drivers didn't install properly but that's basically what seems to have happened.
Try uninstalling the driver, downloading the latest version (for your operating system) from the Epson Support section of their website and then reinstalling.
Remember to have the printer turned off and the usb cable disconnected until prompted to do so.
Might also be worth disconnecting from the internet (for safety) and disabling any of your anti-virus or other software while you install the drivers as they can sometimes cause problems.
Obviously once you're done, re-enable anything you disabled and reconnect to the internet as normal.
With a little luck that should cure the problem.

Printer error


Hi,

Here a few common problems that your Epson printer and ink cartridge can suffer from.

Improper Installation of Cartridges

A common Epson printer and ink cartridge problem! If you have changed the ink cartridges then you might just receive this error message. The message might state that the cartridge is not installed correctly in the printers. In such cases, re-install the cartridge in the correct manner. If the problem persists then it is advisable that you replace the cartridge as it might be defective. If you still get the same error message on installation of the replacement cartridge then its time that you clean the print head. You could do this yourself or could take it to a repair facility.

Printing Failure

Failure to print documents is yet another common problem with respect to Epson printers. The print heads of Epson printers are sensitive and this sensitiveness is the culprit behind such problems. If the print head is clogged or blocked you will have to unclog or unblock them. This can be done by using a special fluid that is available for just this purpose only. This fluid flushes the print head, and your printer is once again ready to print.

Communication Error

'Communication Problems' are yet another one of the common problems surrounding Epson printers. Once you give the print command you might be shown the message that there is a communication error between the printer and the computer. This means that there is the occurrence of a minor problem. One of the reasons for this problem could be the inappropriate selection of printers from the print options menu. Cable connections should also be checked. Another solution could be the re-installation of the driver of the printer.

Print Jobs that are Slow or Incomplete

These are problems that occur during an ongoing process. The printing might stop midway and then start again after some time. At times, the printing process will repeat itself several times and then finish printing the page. There are times when the page will finish printing, but you will find that it is an incomplete print. More often than not, this is not a printer related problem.

What might have happened is that the driver might have corrupted or a virus might have infected the computer; or a spyware might be affecting the working of the printing process. If such a problem occurs, the best solution would be to scan the computer for viruses and spyware. As can be seen these common Epson printers and Epson ink cartridge problems can be sorted out quite easily.



hope it helps..

Printer stuck on pending


It sounds like the message to me that the printer and the pc are not communicating very well and when you went to print your 54 page document your printer could not handle such a big file there is a communication error between them both. have you updated your printer drivers ? have you run a virus scan on the document ? you might have a virus in one of the drivers for your printer ! what I would do is uninstall your printer from your pc go to add & remove programs remove your printer and then go to the HP website and fully download your software again for your printer when you go on to the HP website type in your printer model number and ask for a set up disk for your printer so just type in instalation disk for
HP Deskjet F390 it will cost you nothing this website will make sure you get everything you need to fully install your drivers back into your pc and any updates that you are missing hope that helps

Won't scan or copy


Solution
These errors are usually caused by a failed scan, a bad installation, communication problems or software conflicts. Follow the steps below until the problem is corrected.
Step one: Restart the computer
Close all programs and restart the computer. A required task might have stopped running or the system resources might have decreased due to tasks left running. Restarting the computer will refresh all Windows tasks as well as increase the available system resources.
Step two: Check for the correct entries in the Device Manager
Verify that the unit was installed on a DOT4 virtual port in the Device Manager.
  1. Right-click My Computer , and then click Properties .
  2. Click the Device Manager tab. (In Windows 2000 and XP, click the Hardware tab , and then click Device Manager .)
Check the list of installed devices for references to DOT4. If there are no DOT4 references, the software has not installed correctly.
If any of these entries are missing, the software did not install properly. Review the information in the HP document Troubleshooting Installation Issues for USB-Connected HP All-in-One Products in Microsoft(R) Windows (bpu01858) for installation assistance.
Step three: Check for communication problems between the all-in-one and the computer
Communication might have failed between the all-in-one and the computer. Review the information in the HP document USB Connected HP All-in-One's Software Reports a Disconnected or an Error Status (bpu01859) to check for communications problems between the HP all-in-one and the computer.
Step four: Check the computer to see if it is infected with a computer virus
If the all-in-one prints but will not scan correctly and does not show any symptoms of communications problems, the computer might be infected with a virus. Some viruses try to disable virus scanning software and in doing so disable scanning from the all-in-one. The following are symptoms a virus problem:
  • The scanning software works after installing the all-in-one software until the first time the computer is restarted.
  • In the Device Manager, opening the Properties of the Imaging Device entry will reveal a status of "code 19" or "code 28".
  • A Scanner Cannot be initialized error occurs. While this error may other reasons, a virus will cause this error.
When the all-in-one is turned on and connected, follow the steps below to see if this is the problem:
  1. Right-click My Computer (click Start first in Windows XP) and then click Properties .
  2. Open the Device Manager:
    • Windows 98 and Me: Select the Device Manager tab.
    • Windows 2000 and XP: Select the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager .
  3. Locate the Imaging Device entry and click the plus (+) beside it. It may have an exclamation mark beside it.
  4. Right-click the all-in-one entry under Imaging Devices, and then click Properties .
  5. A Properties screen will open. Look at the Device status section.
Hope it may helps;.
Regards, VOTIT

I cant seem to print, it says theres a communication error, iv done everything. i have the lexmark x3580 printer


Hi rima1st,

Printers can definitely be frustrating if they aren't working right, but often times it is one of several common problems that can make them work again. Here are some tips to help you troubleshoot your printer error, since we cannot physically test your connectivity to your printer at the moment.

1: Open your Printers & Faxes panel from your control panel. First, ensure that the correct printer is installed here, and that it is currently set to be the default printer.

2: Right-click on the default printer, select Open, and ensure that there are no print jobs currently queued to print. If there are several of them, delete them all to make sure a broken or stuck print job is not holding up the rest of your printing.

3: Double-check all connections to your PC from the printer, and make sure your printer does not display any errors that are related to it's functionality, rather than the computers.

4: Last but not least, you can uninstall and re-install your printer's drivers and set it up in your Printers & Faxes. This completely removes all of your computer's working knowledge of that printer and re-educates it on how to communicate properly to your printer.

Other than that, the problem could be related to a third-party program blocking your printer (spyware or virus) or it may be that your printer or USB cable are defective. Again, many possibilities and it's extremely difficult to troubleshoot with very limited information. Perhaps you could post a more detailed description of any error messages that your computer mentions, or what steps you have taken? Hope that helps.

Lexmark x4580 connected via USB will allow printing once when computer started after that comuunication problem error received every time. I have checked all firewall settings on Mcaffee and Windows (all...


1) Disable both firewalls and see if it prints.
2) If it prints, then it's a firewall roblem. Enable your Windows firewall first. If your printer works just leave the McAfee firewall disabled. You don't need both anyway but leave the ant-virus enabled.
3) If it doesn't print with your Windows firewall enabled, try it the other way. Windows firewall disabled, McAfee enabled.
4) If it doesn't print in any of these cases try re-installing the software for your printer.You will want to make sure that McAfee is totally disabled (anti-virus and firewall) and turn off off your Windows firewall. Here are the steps for re-installing software. If you don't have the cd let me know and I'll provide you with a link for it.
Removing and reinstalling the software
If the printer is not functioning properly, or if a communications error message appears when you try to use the
printer, you may need to remove and reinstall the printer software.

1 Click Start �� Programs or All Programs �� Lexmark 3500-4500 Series.
2 Select Uninstall.
3 Follow the instructions on the computer screen to remove the printer software.
4 Restart the computer before reinstalling the printer software.
5 Click Cancel on all New Hardware Found screens.
6 Insert the CD, and then follow the instructions on the computer screen to reinstall the software.
Note: If the install screen does not appear automatically after you restart your computer, click Start �� Run, and
then type D:\setup, where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive.

If this fixes your problem please rate this as fixed. If it doesn't and you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you out' I'll be waiting to see how it turns out. Thanks.
