COLOR PRINTING PROBLEM


Have a look at your printer software settings. You may have it set to black and white only. There may also be a driver that was missed during installation to allow colour printing. Try reinstalling the software.

    The printer will not communicate with my computer


    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

    1. Go to Control Panel - Printers : Delete 926 printer
    2. Go to Control Panel - Programs and Features : Uninstall All Dell 926 related software. There should be 3 programs. (When prompted to restart, respond to wait.
    3. Rename Folder C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32x86 to W32X86OLD
    4. Now restart your computer
    5. Reinstall 926 Software.
    This worked terrific for me.

    I just put new ink Cartridges but still wont print


    Hello,

    Most of the time the "problem communicating with the printer" message pops up on Lexmark X1185 series when the driver gets corrupted. The best fix for this issue would be to uninstall the software first. Try connecting the USB to a different USB port (Please avoid using USB hubs, if any) and then reinstall the software. This should normally fix the printer communication issues!

    Good Luck

    I have a x5495 printer and after installing software and I try to print, I get message that no communication between printer and computer. I have checked all of the recommendations and still can get to...


    The message "no communication between printer and computer". some times indicates that the cable you're using is faulty or the port selected is not the printer port you've connected your printer to.cheers.

    I have a lexmark t644 printer and have an error code of 900.44 any ideas on how to fix this


    1. If the printer is currently displaying a 900 RIP Software error, power off the printer and leave it powered off for 20 seconds or more. Doing this will clear the printer's memory.
    2. While the printer is off, clear any pending print jobs from the computer or the network queue. This will prevent any corrupted print jobs from being sent to the printer again when it is powered back on.
    3. Power the printer back on.
    4. If the printer goes to the Ready status, try printing again.
    5. If the 900 RIP Software error returns when the printer is powered up or when you try to print, there is a problem with either the printer, the communication cable connecting the printer to the computer, or with the print job itself. Follow the directions below to check each of these components.
      • If the error appears every time you power on the printer, regardless of whether you send a print job or not, the likely source of the problem is the printer or an option installed on the printer.
      • If the error appears only when you send print jobs to the printer, the likely source of the problem is the computer, a setting on the printer, or one of the communication cables.
