You probably need to reinstall the drivers for it.

Visit your manufacturers website to download it.

I moved my HP 4000 printer from one office to another. When I hooked It back up, it printed out a few pages of symbols and then will not print at all. The ready light is on, but it will not print. Any

If you get a bunch of meaningless symbols on the page the usual causes are a corrupt or wrong print driver, a bad communication cable or a failed formatter or possibly a print job stuck in a queue on the computer that you connected the printer to (pending jobs often corrupt when you reconnect your printer). Unplug the parallel or network cable from the printer and restart and then try to print the configuration page. If it prints then plug in the communication cable and try printing again. Still bad after that reinstall the printer driver. If a fresh driver does not work, try a different cable.

Problem printing with IBM 4610 TF6

It can be a connection problem, since the printer and the computer are not communicating, probably the cable is bad, so if you have a different cable that we can try that will be better so we can check if its only a cable problem ...

Hope that helps......

Printer only prints top half of page when printing a page from Microsoft WORD. I have disconnected and reconnected all the cables. What next?

Sounds like a printer driver problem, Information comes from the dynamic link libary DLL for short, if your driver is damaged it will not communicate with the DLL, try reinstalling the driver and sofware.

HP 4L will print test page just fine but cannot communicate with my computer. Tried to download new drivers but that didn't work. Any ideas?

Hello, The HP4L will be connected by a parallel cable. This is the big cable attached to the I/O interface. The first thing to try would be to reseat the cable by removing from the printer and the computer. Look at the pins for any obvious bent pins. Install the cable back onto the printer and computer. Try sending a test page to the printer from the computer. If the printer does still not work, I would definitely recommend the use of another cable. If the cable has been changed and the printer still does not function, then most likely the inferface has gone bad, in which case the cost of repair for this older printer may not be worth it. regards, Pre.....

We have an Offline message when attempting to print. We have unplugged the printer, unplugged the router, modem and shut down the computers and then restarted all. We still have the problem.

Usually these messages are from communication issues between the computer and the printer. I have to go to the printers support/driver site and download the latest and greatest drivers for that printer that matches the operating system. I then uninstall the printer and get rid of all software and drivers for it. Make sure the printer is unplugged and off. Install the new drivers. If this printer is connected to a router and all computers in the home access it through the network, then it can be reinstalled simply by powering it up, attaching it to the router with an ethernet cable, opening up the control pane > click on printers > click on add printer > choose network printer > windows will search the network and find the printer and display it. Highlight the printer when it displays and click ok. Windows will install and initiate the printer and ask you if it is to be the default printer and will ask if you want it to print a test page.

If this printer is connected to the computer via usb cable, once the drivers are installed, attach the cable to the printer and start it up, windows will recognize the hardware and automatically load the drivers you installed. It may want to search windows update for an updated driver, click ok and let windows set the printer up....that includes all communication protocols.

My lexmark x4270 series is not communicating with the computer, what is the problem

Check if the cables are perfectly attached between the printer and your computer. If everything is fine then reinstall the Software which came with your printer. If still problem persists, then check if your print cartridges are not empty.

'Fatal communication error' - cannot print

My first recommendation is to carry a printer self test. Use the Menu on the front panel to do this ok. If both printers succeed in self test then the problem is reduced. Uninstall the previous drivers for these printers. Connect the printer data cable(USB) to the pc and check for communication. that is, whether or not it is detected by the pc's OS. This should be done one after the other on different ports. If the two printers are attached to same pc, I recommend you use a combination of USB and Parallel printer cables. If communication is successful then detach both cables from the pc. Install the drivers for the USB printer without attaching it to the pc. Then attach when prompted. That way, the printer is guaranteed. For the printer on the parallel port, connect it and install the drivers while attached to the pc. If nothing happens still, you should consider leaving only a printer on the pc. Good luck

Re dfx -9000

Please perform the following steps to ensure your printer is physically functioning.

1. Turn the printer off and disconnect the interface cable.
2. Load plain, single part tractor paper into the printer.
3. Press the LOAD/EJECT button while turning on the printer.

NOTE: The self test prints over several pages. After the first or second page has printed, press PAUSE and turn the printer off.

If this self test prints correctly, then the printer hardware is functioning correctly.

>Try printing from other applications.
>Check cables as they can cause communication errors.
>Re-install the driver.
>Go to for more information & documentation.
