SOURCE: computer can't communicate with printer

whatever be the OS, get into control panel, go to printers and see the printer that you are using is set as default,,, there would be a check mark on that printer icon,, if not make it default,, and try again, If you are using a usb cable connect the usb cable of the printer to the back usb ports and try,, use the printer driver disk that came with your computer, perform a reinstallation of the driver

SOURCE: no communications computer to printer

With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

SOURCE: Computer cannot communicate with printer

either port or driver problem. you may have to make adjustments in BIOS under peripheral devices. default is auto, change to assign manually and assign a port for com 1, com 2, printer.
reboot
right click MY COMPUTER, PROPERTIES, HARDWARE, DEVICE MANAGER; scroll down to com 1 and com 2 ports (above printer port) make sure no yellow explanation marks which indicate a port conflict. NO PRINTER WILL PRINT.
go to mfr website and download driver for your printer
click MY COMPUTER, PROPERTIES, HARDWARE, DEVICE MGR;
scroll down to printer port; right click; PROPERTIES, click on change driver; browse over to where you download drivers; keep going down the tree until you get to DRIVERS (select the folder with your operating system) click on it to OPEN into dialogue box (in change driver wizard which is open) and hit enter; THE WIZARD WILL INSTALL THE CORRECT DRIVER FOR YOUR PRINTER.
HAPPY PRINTING.

SOURCE: computer won't communicate with printer

Make sure that the printer driver you are using is compatible with your version of windows. If so, open all printers in "control panel" and make sure that this printer is the preferred printer and not an old one you might still have installed.

I can not down load pages or pictures from my laptop to printed. It all locks up and does nothing.


What is the operating system running on your computer? How is the printer connected to your computer, wireless or hardwired with a usb cable? A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. If you're connected wireless, simply unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. Reboot your computer as well. If usb-connected, disconnect your printer from your computer first. Then, unplug/re-plug printer into the power source and reboot pc. Try to print again.
