Try uninstall the printer driver, disconnect the printer usb cable from PC, restart computer, install the driver again and when driver ask to connect the printer, then connect the printer and do not forget to switch it ON. If it say new hardware found and printer is recognised then ok otherwise check the usb cable. It may be defected. (ehteshamhusain@gmail.com)

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??


1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

Communication error


2 possible probs on this depends on if you are using Wireless or cable If wireless it basically means that your laptop or desktop computer is not receiving instructions from printer and thats why there is a communication error coming up, try just testing wireless port on another laptop to see if its a fault with the one you have,
If its a Usb cable issue try reconnecting in another Usb port sometimes some ports are usb 2.0 or 3.0 and will not be powerful enough for your printer, In addition try using another cable it could be faulty also printer cables are sometimes similar to scanner cables swap them round this depends on the male fitting though if they are the same,
another method is disconnect printer from computer and run a self diagnostic on its own to see if its working alright if ok reconnect but before you do make sure your computer is up and running first with Usb it cable plug and play which means your computer should recognise it and install software required if a disk is required make sure thats ready
Or could be something real simple like your usb or connector is not connected correctly take them out clean and put back in reboot and retry
hope this helps

Cannot Communicate; install USB; Install cable; installation USB; Installation cable; Cannot continue installation; Unable to press Continue; Unavailable Continue button; Continue button not active; Opaque Continue button; Gray Continue button; Continue button grayed out; USB connection not recognized
Solution
What you will see The Continue button is gray (i.e. Continue), preventing further driver stallation. connect the Installation Cable; using the supplied installation cable, connect to any USB port on this computer. Back Quit Continue There are several possible reasons for an inactive Continue button. Try the following suggestions in the order provided to resolve this issue: Action
1 Make sure the printer is turned on:
2 Confirm a solid connection of the USB installation cable on both printer and computer. HINT: The USB port is identified by this symbol:
3 Keeping Step 2 in mind, disconnect the USB cable from both printer and computer and then reconnect the USB cable at both ends.
HINT: Listen for audio alerts or notification icons or balloons in the Windows notification area. For example, or or .
4 If your computer has multiple USB ports, try connecting the USB installation cable to a different USB port.
NOTE: Passive or self-powered USB hubs may cause a problem.
5 If one is available, try connecting another USB device to the same USB port to see if it is recognized by the operating system.
6 If one is available, try a different USB cable that is under 10 feet.
NOTE: Some port replicators or docking stations for laptops or notebooks may cause a problem.
7 Confirm that you are installing the correct software driver for your printer model. For example, a 7600 Series driver works with the X7650 and X7675 All-In-One.
8 Turn off the printer, and disconnect and reinsert the power supply and power cord. Click here for image.
9 Click Quit to exit the installation. Remove the CD from the CD or DVD drive. Then reinsert the CD and try to perform the installation again.
To save time you can skip or close the hardware setup wizard if you have already completed these tasks. 10 Confirm that Device Manager recognizes the device. To open Windows Device Manager: Click on Start and then Run.In the Run dialog, type devmgmt.msc. Click OK.11 Next, disconnect the USB cable from the printer and reconnect it. Watch the Device Manager indow while you do so. The appearance of the items in the screen should change as Device Manager tries to recognize the device. Click here for image.Macintosh users: System Profiler is the Device Manager equivalent. Click here for instructions on accessing System Profiler, and look under Hardware > USB for the printer.12 Does Device Manager show a change in appearance?-If Yes, contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance. -If No, there may be a problem with your computer and its USB support. The computer must recognize the USB cable in order for installation to work. 13 Reboot your PC and try these steps again.

Computer says there is no communication with the printer


Couple of things to consider and try,,,have you tried another USB device in the computer, like a flash drive? If it can read the flash drive ok then the problem is not the USB port. Try using a different USB cable for the printer. Make sure your computer is up to date with the most current drivers. To me it sounds like a bad printer cable. Another thing to try is having the printer attached and when the error message comes up try wiggling the cable to see if communication is restored. If so then chances are that the printer cable is bad. Hope this helps.

USB device not recognized


Hello,
SOLUTIONS:
  1. Unplug the USB device. It is possible that the connection is not secure and has become loose. This is one of the most common reasons for an error in detecting a USB device.
  2. Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the start menu, select the 'Run' option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click 'Ok'. From the 'Action' Mmnu, click 'scan for hardware changes'. This will make Windows recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all device managers and control panels. Now see if your computer will read the USB device.
If the above two doesnt work, then try the following,

Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management,

1.Click Start, and then click Run
2.Type devmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
3.Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed:
4.Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
5. Click the Power Management tab.
6. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

PS: If you perform the following procedure on a laptop computer, you may reduce the battery life.

Chances are you reconnected the printer to a different USB port and your default is still set up for the other port...

Look at your printer settings and chances are it set up the printer again for the new port.

Either change your default printer or move the cable back to the original port.
