LexmarkX74-75 Communication Not Available

I have the printer set up and printing test sheets beautifully,but when I then go to actually print a real page, I get the error message ;
The printer cannot communicate with the computer.

Try these solutions:

-Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable
-Disconnect and reconnect the printer's power cable
-Restart your computer

Now I've done all of this 5-6 times to no avail. Each time I can get great TEST prints on paper, but no prints of pages I want.

Communication not available with my lexmark x2670 with newly installed windows 7. it print test page and prints internet explorer pages but nothing else

Sounds to me like you just need to select the printer in other programs.

1. Make sure it's the default printer by going to Start -> Devices and Printers. Find your installed printer, right-click it and check set as default printer. If it's already the default printer, let's move on.
2. In your other programs, such as MS Word, try to print a page.
3. Below the Print button you should see an option to select the printing device. Make sure your printer is selected and see if that works.

If you're actually getting a Communication Not Available error on the printer, you might have a separate problem that needs addressing. Let me know so I can help!

What is the calibration sheet

A calibration sheet it what tells the printer how colors should actually look, and how they should print out. These should print out as you set your printer to calibrate itself. You place that sheet on the printer's glass (scanner).

Hope this helps. :)

Improving print speed

no it is not..the printing speed is conditioned by the communication and the sheet ..font size..and such ...if it is appearing to be slower the fault is the communication ..but anyway look in the menu and see modes..some have a express mode for fast printing ..

Everytime I activate my hp 1513 printer it prints a test page.Why???

But your test page is actually the printer alignment page.
You will need to place face down in the scanner and then press the scan button on the printer itself. The button is located at the end of the panel. Let the printer scans the test page.
Once it store the setting, the printer will not print the alignment page again.

Load paper


To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

HP will not print.It printed the test sheet.

If it printed a test sheet, then the problem is in your program..
go to your printer and faxes folder, (same place as youfound the print test page)
set the HP printer to Default
Try to print from Word or Notepad, when the printer select window pops up make sure the HP is showing, and selected.
If you have more than one printer installed on your Computer, but only one printer, delete all the printers you are not using..

Printer prints test page each time printer is turned on

There may be something initialised to print a test page everytime it starts, just remove printer, uninstall driver and re start. Re install drivers and connect printer when prompted or when installation has finished. This should revert to default settings.
