    We have the same problem with our Lexmark Z1420 printer. The printer loaded fine initially worked long enought to put new cartridges in worked for a while and then stopped. We can not use Wireless or USB connection. It keeps coming up as a communication error. We use a wireless PC and a Wireless Macintosh with this printer. Very Frustrating. The Orange light continues to flash even after reloading software. What gives? Can anyone help, it sounds like this a problem with a lot of Z1420 printers.

    Hi there steb

    My friend has since told me that it might not be working because my laptop will only allow 1 wireless device but i doubt this is the case. I have since uninstalled and re-installed th printer software but this time iv not used wireless. It has fixed the problem but i am dissapointed it is not wireless. However other friend have told me that i CAN have both wireless interent and printer on my laptop.

    Is there anyone out there who knows what is wrong??

Maybe you have your print cartridges in the wrong place. Try switching them.

* If the printer is connected to a computer, check the computer screen for
instructions.
* If you are printing a CD label on a CD/DVD, insert the CD/DVD holder in the

for instructions.
* If the printer is not connected to a computer, check for the following problems:
- Main cover open - Out of paper - Paper jam - Print carriage jammed or stuck - Print cartridge missing or inserted incorrectly - Print cartridge tape not removed - Incorrect print cartridge installed - Packaging materials are not removed * If you are unable to solve the problem by using the instructions above, turn off
the printer and unplug the printer power cord. Wait 10 seconds, and then plug
it in again. Turn on the printer.

How can I get my epson sx115 scanner/printer to work and pair it with my laptop with the cd rom instructions ? I put the printer wire in recently and does not print.


Use the setup wizard given in the CD along with the printer.
Check if the printer drivers have been installed in the laptop.
Donot connect the printer before installing the software.
Initially use the CD and follow the instructions on the screen
You will be prompted to connect the Printer after the installation is done.
Connect and then try a test print when instructed.

My printer suddenly would not print and a message came up asking me to insert the installation cd but the installation is not completing and rwad as unsuccessful


Your print drivers might be corrupted and the installer cd might be damaged.
1. Uninstall the old drivers first.
2. Download and install the needed drivers here:

3. Follow the installation instructions and everything should be back to normal.

I just bought A Kodak esp 3250 series AIO printer. I can print from computer, copy and all that but whenever I try to scan to computer or even preview scan I get a error saying :An error occurred while...


Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.

Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak.
1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.)
2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
3. Double-click twain_32.
4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner.
NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer.
6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it.
7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
8. Open Home Center Software:
a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
b. Scan a document.

Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: http://www.kodak.com/go/contact .

I hope this helps.

My laptop says my printer is working fine but when I try to print to it is gives me the Enable Bidirectional communication error message. I've looked under properties and updated all drivers but it still...


If you are using a usb cable to hookup the printer, then it is installed improperly. Remove the printer via the printers folder, and insert and follow the directions from the cd to install the printer via usb. Usually, you have to leave the printer unhooked until the software prompts you during installation. This is usually a result of selecting "add a printer" in the printer folder instead of inserting the printer cd and following the onscreen instructions.

Hi wolst, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

Printing onto printable cd


You need to install (or download then install) the Easy-print toolbox software. It should be available on the Canon website. When you run it, it shows options for printing photos and cds. Click the cd button and follow the instructions. (You just choose a picture, photo, text etc. and position it using the cd displayed on the screen. Then insert the cd into the special holder, push it in some of the way, then allof the way when it says to.)

Ps - it's best to download the latest of everything (all software, drivers etc.) for your printer to make sure you have the most up-to-date versions.

Good luck

I try to print from Microsoft Word or the internet or any other program and its not printing anything i tried everything! i even did the test to see if something is plugged and it did fine and printed but...


This is most likely due to a driver fault. The "driver" is just a small piece of software that lets a computr communicate with other devices (peripherals). Disconnect the printer and put the CD in the computer (the CD that came with your printer) and follow the instructions. If no instructions or interface loads on the screen when you insert the CD then simply connect the printer to the computer...when the message box prompts you to specify what was connected to the computer, then browse for the driver by directing the brose option to the CD drive where the driver is located. If this fails or if it is too hard to do, then go to the canon website and go to their support page. Here you can download drivers for your inkjet by searching for the model. Once you have the corrct driver installed then:

  1. In Windows XP, click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
    In Windows 2000, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
  2. In Windows XP, under Printer Tasks, click Add a printer. In Windows 2000, double-click the Add Printer icon.
  3. Follow the instructions in the Add Printer Wizard. If you want to print a test page, make sure the printer is turned on and ready to print.

You should have gotten an installation CD with the printer. First, find the installation CD. Once you have that, follow the steps given by the tech.
