Can't print from computer

My printer and my computer aren't "talking". It can copy, so I know the printer is working. I unplugged everything and plugged it back in, but the connection still isn't there....

Reinstall the printer drivers. (completely remove the old ones first)
Try new drivers from HPs website if need be.

Check the print queue in control panel>printers to make sure nothing is lying in the print queue and blocking your printing.

Make sure that you are printing to the correct printer in the "print" dialogue box that pops up when you go file>print. Sometimes this can revert to "microsoft document printing" or somesuchand just save a file on your hard drive instead of printing (in techie speak, printing does not necessarily mean print out on a bit of paper). Or may the "Print" dialogue box wrongly is pointed at another/old printer that still has drivers installed on your pc when it pops up, check before clicking the "ok" button..

If not, try a new cable, if not, call HP.

My wireless AND usb connection does not work on my Pixma MX452 printer. I can't print from any of my devices. How do I fix it?


It sounds like your printer is to blame. Unplug the device for five minutes and plug it back in. That resets the printer defaults. Try plugging-in another device (ipod) to the USB computer inputs to see if it is functioning correctly. That is to determine which wi-fi device, printer or computer is malfunctioning. Change out the USB cord too. I'm confused by your comment "I can't print from any of my devices".....what other devices are you talking about? Try unplugging everything for five minutes.....computer and peripherals.

I am unable to print but i can copy


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Disconnect the printer from your computer, reboot your pc, and unplug/re-plug printer into the power source to reset it. When everything turns back on, reconnect the printer into your computer. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. Try to print again.

MY LEXMARK X125 STOPPED RECIEVING AND SENDING FAXES. IT HAS ITS OWN LINE NOT CONNECTED TO COMPUTER. ALSO MY SPEAKER DIAL TONE IS NOT WORKING. WHEN CHECKING MY DRPD WONT SET UP EITHER. THIS JUST HAPPENED 2...


Hello. If everything else is working, printing and copying, unplug the printer from the power source. Check the telephone line from your phone company by unplugging the fax machine from the wall jack where it is connected to. Plug a telephone device straight to that wall jack and check for a dial tone. If there's no dial tone, contact your phone company. If there is, plug the fax machine back to that wall jack. You can also try replacing the telephone cable with a another known working cable. Plug the printer back to the power source. Check again. Hope this helps.

My Hp Deskjet F4200 series printer will not scan anything to my computer, but it will copy just fine. How can I get it to scan? I have already uninstalled the printer driver & reinstalled it. It says...


Check to see that your Scanner drivers have been installed. Click on Start, then Printers and Faxes and see if a Scanner is listed. If not, you need to install the drivers.

Also, when you uninstall the printer drivers, you first need to disconnect the printer from the computer, and unplug the printer from the power source. Leave the printer unplugged for at least 15 minutes to clear the printer's cache memory.

Next, go to Add/Remove Programs in your Control Panel and uninstall the printer software. Then, turn off your computer.

Next, reboot your computer. Place the Deskjet cd in the drive and follow instructions for reinstalling the printer software and drivers.
CAUTION: DO NOT PLUG IN YOUR PRINTER CABLE TO YOUR COMPUTER UNTIL PROMPTED BY THE INSTALL DISK!!

Was printing fine. I turned the printer off and it won't go back on. Everything is plugged in correctly.


Possible hardware failure, unfortunately.
Turn it off. Then unplug it from your computer and unplug it from the wall too.
Plug it directly into a working power source. Then turn it on.
