    The error message reads: "Firmware Download Error. The printer was unable to communicate with your computer. Please power cycle the printer, check the connection, and try again."

    Turn the printer off.
    Turn your computer off.
    Check the "data" cable at both ends (printer & computer).

    Turn the computer on, and let it fully load Windows.
    Turn the printer on.
    Try to access the printer.

    Lexmark Z2000 doesn't communicate with computer

    Sounds like it is stuck in "Power Save" mode. Try unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in again. That usually fixes this one...

    All in One Scanner/Printer problems

    Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
