    Printer not responding to commands from computer.. Printer "voice" is silent . There is no message on the printer screen to indicate a problem. USB cable and power cable and power supply to printer have been disconnected and reconnected. After the above described problem happened, both ink cartridges were replaced with new cartridges. Printed printed an alignment sheet but is still unresponsive to commands from computer.

What kind of printer is it?

remove printer from USB, and un-install, reboot
insert CD that came with printer and run installation "DO NOT CONNECT PRINTER" installation should ask what kind of connection USB or parallel AND it will tell you when to connect it

NOTE: connect it to a different USB port that the one you used.

again, this is general instructions as I have no clue on what printer you have.

Ir400s error code


Could you provide a printer brand and model number? Without that information it is nearly impossible to give you good advise. I would disconnect the USB cable from the computer then turn off the printer and disconnected the printer power cord from the electrical outlet. After about 1 minute plug the printer back into the outlet, turn the printer on and reconnect the USB cable to the computer. If you are lucky the printer might reset and start working again.

Printer won't turn off


Check the power supply cords; make sure they are attached properly. If you are using a power strip, surge protector or any other device where the power supply cord is not plugged directly into a wall outlet, bypass them and plug the printer into a wall outlet; see if that changes anything.
If that doesn't work, remove the printer's power cord from the outlet and all the other cables that the printer connects to the computer to.
Wait 5 or 10 minutes for the printer's CMOS and RAM chips to power off completely.
After enough time has elapsed, plug only the printer's power cord into the wall outlet (do not hook up any of the communication cables in e.g. USB, or serial cables, or network cables.)
Then press the power "on" button.

If the error message is gone, power off the printer.
Uninstall the printer and all its programs from the computer.
Do a clean install and follow the procedures of hooking up the printer as though you are installing it for the very 1st time.

You may have to obtain firmware and/or software updates from HP on your specific printer.

You may also have to check with your OS vendor to make sure you have all the updates/service packs on your PC or laptop

Since you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer software, do you set up again the printer and try to print again the test page.

Most printer if it is not responding is it due to connection error like cable set up, port driver set up or the configuration of the printer or the print spooler had stop.

Please try hard reset of the printer.

  3. Close the top cover of the printer.
  4. Press the power button on the printer to turn the printer off.

I can print from my Dell 926 all in one, but it wont scan


Try removing your 926 icon in Printers and Faxes, disconnect the USB cable, restart your computer, reconnect the USB cable, see the 926 and install the driver again. If scan has never worked, you probably need a different driver.

Hope this helps.

Printer doesn't turn's on


Per Canon:

Solution: Disconnect and Reconnect AC power adapter or power cord to the device and electrical source

Secure all Power Connections
  • Disconnect the AC Power Adapter or power cord from both the device and the electrical source.
  • Then reconnect it.
  • If you are still unable to obtain power to the device, try another power outlet.
  • If possible, try connecting power directly to a wall outlet (as opposed to using a surge protector or power strip...just as a troubleshooting measure).
If this does not work, have you tried a different outlet to ensure that the outlet isn't the issue? Also, when you press the POWER button, does the printer respond at all, or is it basically dead?

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
