Make sure you install the printer drivers before connecting the printer. It also might be a cord or port problem-try a different cable and/or different usb port.

Why is the light flashing on the right side

If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:

• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing.
• The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.

If it's Busy:
• Wait for the message to clear.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages:
• Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the
printing stops.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel printing.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

  • Try not to overload the feeder with sheets of paper.
  • Rebrick your printer by pulling out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. This will reset your printer.

Printer wont comunicate with Computer

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 to your computer. Try to print again. If problem continues, you may refer to these articles in the Lexmark website:
- Communication Not Available' Error Message and Print Job Stalls in Print Queue - No Communications Error When Trying to Print or Scan
I hope these help. Thanks.

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. You can also contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. Thanks.

  1. First count the number of times the light on the front of your printer flashes.
  2. Then refer to the table below for information about the error condition and recommended recovery procedures.

    Number of Flashes Error Condition Error Recovery 2 Carrier Stall:
    The movement of the print cartridge carrier has been obstructed. Remove any objects blocking the carrier path.
    4 Print Incomplete:
    The print cartridge carrier stopped in the middle of a print job due to obstruction. Remove any objects blocking the carrier path.
    12 Cartridge Short:
    The printer has detected a short circuit in a cartridge.
    1. Turn the printer off.
    2. Open the front cover.
    3. Turn the printer back on.
    4. Remove the color cartridge.
    5. Close the cover. If there are no flashing lights, the color cartridge is short-circuited.
    6. Remove the black cartridge and then reinsert the color cartridge.
    7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge is short-circuited.
    8. If you continue to receive an error indicated by flashing lights, both cartridges are short-circuited.

Hello, RE: LEXMARK Z1380 The light on the power button keeps flashing and im receiving a message telling me the printer cannot communicate with the PC. I have reconnected all the wires, i have also...

This is going to sound crazy, but I just spend days with the same cannot communicate with the printer problem with my Z1300. I was ready to buy a different printer when I decided to look on Lexmark's site. The fast blinking power light indicates a paper jam. I thought... sure.. uh huh. I turned off the printer, took the stack of paper out, which didn't seem jammed at all, put one piece in, turned on the power ... and the blinking had stopped. Yep ... after doing the countless fixes I found on the net... including reinstalling drivers.. deleting usb ports.. etc... it was a paper jam! The printer works fine again. Hey.. what would you expect from a printer that cost under $25. lol
