My Lexmark Platinum PRO905 does ot print it gives me the message " Communication Not Available, The Printer cannot communicate with the computer"


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if usb-connected), reboot your computer and unplug/replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect the printer into the computer. Try to print again.

My lexmark x6650 printer will not connect back online


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

When printers USB cable is plugged in it is not recognised. Driver installs ok butcomputer does not communivate with printer.


Unless your printer main board has failed, the only reason that a USB connection would not communicate is if your printer is turned off or if the USB printer cable or connection is faulty. Try connecting other equipment with the cable and see if that gets recognised by your computer also try connecting to a different USB socket on your computer.
Hope this helps.

My printer hp laserjet 5l is printing in number and alphabatic what i do .


Hello,

This is caused by one of two things. First be sure you have the correct printer driver installed, if you have printed to this printer before on this computer then you should be ok here. The other thing would be that the printer lost communications with the computer and when it reconnected the control codes had been lost. To check this, first power off the computer and the printer. Now check the connections between the two, the computer connection should be screwed tight and the printer connection needs to have both clips fastened. Now power up the computer and printer, try a test print, if it prints then you should be good. If you still get the odd print then replace your printer cable, be sure to get one that is rated IEEE1284. This rating insures proper bidirectional communications between the printer and the computer.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

The printer will not communicate with my computer


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue
