When I try to print from my PC the printer doesn't respond at all even though the cable is connected on both ends and the printer is turned on. Worked fine the day before.

    Any error messages on teh PC or printer dispaly- Possibly the default printer in the printer control has gotten changed by accident and you didn't notice- the computer would try and send the print job to the wrong printer, and the CX7800 wouldn't even know there was a job for it.

  • jbckkhamm Jun 01, 2010

    I checked that - the CX7800 is the default printer. The printer is acting as if there was a was a command sent to it previously that it can't ignore. I wondered if there was a way to reset the printer somehow. I unplugged it but that didn't help.

I assume you are using a PC- All printers have a list of pending jobs refered to as the print "queue"- it should open if you double click on the default ptinter icon in the printer list- it sounds to me like your print Queue has been paused somehow and all the print jobs are being "held" until you tell the queue to restart printing

Printer not responding


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.
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.

The printer is not printing any document


Hi

Please check

1. Do you have a printer cable failure?

The printer will not be printing if its not connected to the computer. Check that the printer cable connecting your printer to the computer is firmly attached at both ends. Apart from this cable, there should be one more cable which is the one connecting to the wall outlet.

2. In case it still not work after checking try resetting and printing.

3. Else please change the Data Cable if it is very old one.
