With your printer turned on, go to control panel, and select SYSTEM, then select DEVICE MANAGER. Here you can see all devices and peripherals hooked up to your computer. It might be under IMAGING DEVICES. If you don't see your device listed, it is not installed/correctly. If you DO see it, but there is a yellow triangle next to it, it means there is a driver or other error involved with it.
Right click your printer (if it IS there), and select PROPERTIES. The GENERAL tab will show if the device is working properly or not. Select the second tab DRIVER, and click on update driver just to be sure. If all looks okay like it should, then maybe you just need to enable sharing on the printer.

Hope this helps.

When I try and print I get message Printer cannot communicate with computer - please turn on 'Enable Biodirectional Communication' in printer properties. I go to control panel/printer/propertie/ports/ and I see Enable Biodirectional communication - the box is grayed out and I cannot enable it. Any suggestions?

    I'm trying g to connect my Dell AIO 922 printer to


    You need to go to Control Panel add/remove programs and remove all Printer programs. Then disconnect the USB cable, install the printer software until a message comes up that says plug in your printer. If no message comes up, complete the software installation and then plug in the USB cable. The computer should find the printer at this time.

    Lexmark X8350 "communication not available"


    I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

    Dell Color Printer 725 - Communication Not Available


    I have seen that in most of the cases (with lexmark and dell printers) it is fixed by reinstalling the printer software. Be sure that you completely remove the older drivers using the cd or using add/remove programs.

    Cannot install printer lexmark x2600m


    Restart your computer. Unplug the USB cable from the printer. Restart your computer. Once your desktop is loaded up. Plug the USB cable back into the computer and look next to the clock in the lower reight corner of the screen to see if the drivers are being installed. You will get messages about it.

    A lot of times when you install the drivers for Lexmark printers, the prefer to have the printer unplugged from the the comptuer during the installation process. If the above paragraph doesn't work you may want to uninstall them and reinstall the drivers again with the printer unplugged from the computer.
