What does Communication Error mean?


I am guessing that you are using Windows 7. If so go to Control panel 'Hardware and Sound' Printers and select Remove a Printer. You may then unplug the printer usb connection and restart your computer. When the computer has restarted , you may go to the link below to download the most current drivers and install them .
Do not plug in the usb connection until you are told to do so. Also, the printer may select a default connection to LPT1 , which is a parallel port connection (apparently this printer likes to do so , and this will give you your "communication error" ). If it does, go to printers in control panel (see above) , right click on the icon for your printer , select "properties" , and left click on the " ports " tab. Make sure that the port selected is USB001 or similar and NOT LPT1.

Communication error


2 possible probs on this depends on if you are using Wireless or cable If wireless it basically means that your laptop or desktop computer is not receiving instructions from printer and thats why there is a communication error coming up, try just testing wireless port on another laptop to see if its a fault with the one you have,
If its a Usb cable issue try reconnecting in another Usb port sometimes some ports are usb 2.0 or 3.0 and will not be powerful enough for your printer, In addition try using another cable it could be faulty also printer cables are sometimes similar to scanner cables swap them round this depends on the male fitting though if they are the same,
another method is disconnect printer from computer and run a self diagnostic on its own to see if its working alright if ok reconnect but before you do make sure your computer is up and running first with Usb it cable plug and play which means your computer should recognise it and install software required if a disk is required make sure thats ready
Or could be something real simple like your usb or connector is not connected correctly take them out clean and put back in reboot and retry
hope this helps

My lexmark x5070 printer keeps saying "cannot retrieve application list" when i try to scan pictures onto my computer. im connected to the internet and i have a gateway laptop with windows 7


Were you able to scan to your Windows 7 before? If yes, it could be just a slight communication problem. Disconnect your printer from your computer. Reboot your computer. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect your printer to the computer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues. Try to scan again.

Command error on epson 9600


Are you sure it is a 'command error' and not a 'communication error'. I could not find anything on a 'command error' but did find this on a 'communication error'.


Q: Why am I getting a communication error when I try to print?

A: Check the following if you are getting a communication error when printing:

Make sure the type of driver you installed matches the ink type in the printer. Verify the ink type by checking the part number on the ink cartridges.

Make sure the printer interface setting matches the connection type you're using. By default, the printer interface should be set to Auto, which supports all connection types.

Check the physical cable connection and make sure the cable is not be longer than 10 ft. You may want to replace the cable.

You may also get communication errors if the printer name is not set correctly. Contact EPSON at (888) 377-6611 or (562) 276-1305 to get instructions on how to verify this.


You might want to check to see if you have the current drivers for your printer and operating system; a new driver can be downloaded here.

Trust this is helpful.

MACHINE REFUSES TO SCAN SHOWING ERROR EA3229 ON BIZHUB 200 COPIER


As with most communications errors the first thing to always try first is shutting off the copier, unplugging it from the power source for at least 30 seconds, then plugging it back in, powering up and trying the scan-to-email functions again (once network synchronization has been completed by the copier).

EAXXXX is a communication's failure code generated by the copier to state that 1. The LAN cable is not physically connected, 2. Communication with the SMTP server has been lost, or 3. One or more of the e-mail addresses that someone attempted to send mail to doesn't exist or is invalid.

If the scan-to-email functions worked before this and have suddenly stopped, you may want to have your IT department reset the mail server.

It's also possible to have had some changes made to internal network address that has affected the copier's ability to communicate with the servers. Check with your IT to see if they've added any security software, changed network address structures, etc., around the time that the scan functions failed.

I keep getting an error message when I start up my laptop. the 2 wire gives me a "corruption has been detected in feature manager, backup file has been loaded", and it will not connect. All other programs...


If the machine is a Dell with DellControlPoint, open start, run then type msconfig and hit enter. Choose the Startup tab and find the startup item named "Dell" with the Command from "C:\Program Files\Dell\Dell Control Point\Connection Manager\Dell.UCM.exe" and uncheck the box. Hit Ok, then reboot your computer.

Communication problem printer lexmark2600


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
