    I appreciate your assistance, but what I did in the end was to unplug everything, wait 30 seconds and then plug in again. Thanks and I'll pass on your website to friends. Cheers.

Why doesn't my printer communicate with m,y computer?


Try uninstalling and reinstalling or doing a repair. Make sure you have your install cd handy. You can uninstall or repair by going to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers. Then right click on the printer and either troubleshoot or remove the printer all together.

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 pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/aNGYmW. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

Wi-fi connection has stopped working. Green light is steady but will not print. Get message saying the computer and printer can not connect.


You need to plug in the original USB cord that came with the printer. Once that is done, try again, the computer should re-dectect the printer. If it doesn't, then a security setting on your wireless has recently changed. If so, then you need to re-run the setup that came with your printer.

There is no method to reset black drum kx-mc6020?


if your talking about the counter, if it doesn't recognise a new cartridge, then most likely the printer needs to be put into service mode to have the counter reset, you may have to call in a Panasonic service man to do it for you.

My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.


Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.

whatever be the OS, get into control panel, go to printers and see the printer that you are using is set as default,,, there would be a check mark on that printer icon,, if not make it default,, and try again, If you are using a usb cable connect the usb cable of the printer to the back usb ports and try,, use the printer driver disk that came with your computer, perform a reinstallation of the driver
