    PC cannot communicate with Lexamrk 1185

  • Anonymous Nov 27, 2007

    Power button keeps on flashing upon inserting onto power socket. I've tried connecting it directly (minus the surge protector) but problem persists. Why is the power button "ON" when I haven't pressed it?

    I have tried everything. It still says no communication between printer and computer. I have uninstalled, and reinstalled, unplugged, and restarted. We just got a new computer but the printer worked fine so we kept it. What is wrong? Help!!!

Wifi signal orange. showing as not connected to computer


This could be a slight communication problem. Try to reboot your computer. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues.
If there's still no communication, try to reset your printer's network settings - How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Once done, re-launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network.
