X4530 "communication not available" with laptop

When attempting to print from my Lexmark X4530 I receive the error message "Communication not available". This is particularly odd as I've been using the same printer with the same laptop for 7 months, problem-free. I've not installed anything new, nor made any changes. And yes, the printer is connected properly, it is turned on, and I've restarted my computer, all to no avail. Any advice gratefully received!

I already experience it ..it becuase of the driver..I think you have 2 or more printer driver installed on your computer right??

you need to uninstall all exisiting driver and install again the printer driver...

and then..
after installing the driver
go to >programs
>printer and faxes
right click the printer icon ..
select used printer as default printer..
and right again..and select >use printer online..

Is offline how can I bring it online


It could be just a minor communication issue. Try to unplug your printer from your computer. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset itself. When your printer turns on completely, reconnect it to your computer. If problem continues, you may refer to these articles for further troubleshooting:

My computer is'nt comunication with the printer


It could be just a slight communication issue. Try to unplug your printer from your computer. Then unplug the printer from the power source. Replug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, replug it into your computer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues. If error continues, you may refer to this article on 'Communication Not Available' Error Message and Print Job Stalls in Print Queue for troubleshooting steps.

Communication problem printer lexmark2600


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue
