SOURCE: 'Communication Not Available' message when printer cable connect

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: Can't print from MacBook, through Time Capsule, to Lexmark x5470

turn on the printer sharing via the system preference panel on the computer that is on the system via usb.
Then on your wifi computer look for shared printers and you'll see your printer in the list under the host computer name... use that setting and it should fire up for you!
let me know how it goes...

SOURCE: Hey, i recently got a Mac and tried to connect my

You stated you have a mac. Is your Mac a laptop that provides wireless? Or are you on a Mac desk top connected to a router that has wireless included with it.. If you have either than you need to go into your network and sharing to set-up the wireless printer. This will give you access to your router via desktop or your wireless settings via laptop,
Once there if you are already using wireless settings you are going to have to allow your printer in through your wep or wap encryption settings. This was set up when you first started using your wireless to keep out intruders.

    Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

    I can not get anything to print on my Epson NX420 using my IMAC. It says the printer is offline and I can't even print a test page. Can you help?


    I'm assuming the printer worked previously from the iMac and now it does not. If you never had it connected, please add a comment to this effect, and include your OS version.

    First, Open the Print Center (Printer Utility) and check the status of the printer. It may be listed as stopped. If so, delete any extra print jobs (additional attempts to print the page), then click the Start Jobs icon.

    You can verify printer connectivity by clicking Add in the Printer List (if that is not visible, select Show Printer List from the View menu). Be sure to select either the USB or wireless network protocol connection. If the NX420 shows up, you have a good connection. In that case, click cancel and skip the next paragraph.

    If you are printing via USB, check the cable (I sometimes forget to plug in my printer cable after downloading from my camera). If you are printing via your wireless network, check the status of the wireless connection from the printer.

    Also, in the printer utility window, click the Supply Levels icon to verify that all of the ink cartridge levels are high enough to permit printing.

    Are there any error messages on the printer display? A fault detection will take the printer offline.

    To whom may it concern, I current have Canon MX340 and I tried to print out some papers but it showed "Printer not responding" What should I do now? Thanks, George


    George,

    It sounds as though either the printer is not talking to the pc or the pc is not talking to the printer.
    Unfortunately you do not say how you communicate with the pc. Is it wireless or via usb?
    I would probably reinstall using the cd if its a wireless setup. Can you print via usb? If you can then do the above.

    Repost if you are still stuck.

    Can I make this a wireless printer?


    You can connect the printer via USB to a single PC or via Ethernet on a network. Though it doesn't have wireless capability built-in, you could also connect it to a wireless router or a print server for a shared wireless connection.
