All software loaded . but cant detect printer

Hi, First check the process of installation that you have done properly. Plugged your printer first but do not turn it on. Install the software disk. This installation will ask to plug the printer then turn the printer on, it will detect your printer automatically. If all the process are OK then make sure the printer is working and it is power on. Check the USB cable of the printer or replace the cable.

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


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

Lexmark Z600 printer, get an unable to cimmunicate with the printer, I get a power light and have checked the usb cable same msg. repeats

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

First option - If you are using Windows OS plug the USB plug to the USB panel of your PC and the other end of the printer cable to your printer. Your PC detects your printer. Install the drivers needed for your printer to work. Insert the installation disk that comes with the printer to your CDRom drive. Install when asks to. After installation, restart your PC.
After restarting to check if your printer is connected click >start< go to >control panel< double-click> System<click>Hardware<click>Device Manager and see if your printer is there.
Second option - if still your printer is not detected by your PC try unplugging from the USB slot and insert it to another USB slot and follow the first option
Third option - if the first and second option does not work, use a different printer cable. The cable that comes with the printer might be defective.
