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.

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.
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.

Check if the cable connecting the computer with the printer is OK. Disconnect and reconnect.
Have you downloaded the driver for this printer on the computer. If not go to web site of HP. Go to support section and download the drivers for this printer.
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
will i think theirs two posible options why not communicate the printer first not proper installed the printer driver or maybe your connection from the computer to printer will loss contact that why not communicate...
