Question about Lexmark X83 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I try stopping the printing by closing the window or trying to cancel it, but it just says, "trouble communicating with the printer" , and keeps on printing. I have tried unplugging the power cord and the USB, that did not help.
Unfortunately most printers have what is called a Cache memory. once you initiate a print job the computer loads it in to the printer, Much like filling a glass of water then the printer takes slow sips so as not to overload the job..if you decide to cancel the print job at your computer you also have to hit the stop button on the printer. In most cases this will empty that "glass" Out and clear the memory. In Vista this problem is inherent to that O.S. I'm still an Xp kinda guy. I hope this helps. Be mucho blessed.. Mark

It may be too late to print the faxes if your printer was unplugged. But you can try:
reprint the faxes in memory
Your HP OfficeJet can store a limited number of fax pages in its memory, with
the number of pages depending on the model you purchased. When your
HP OfficeJet runs out of memory to store faxes, it will not receive any more fax
calls until the stored faxes are printed.
Reprint Faxes in Memory enables you to reprint a fax stored in memory. For
example, if your print cartridge runs out of ink or paper becomes jammed when
printing a fax. This option prints all faxes in memory; press Cancel to stop
printing faxes you do not need.
1 Press Menu.
2 Press 2, then press 3.
This selects the Fax Functions menu, then selects the Reprint Faxes in
Memory option. The faxes are printed from memory.
