Question about Lexmark X3480 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

It just won't print!

When I send something to print, the following error message comes up.

'Communication Not Available
The printer cannot communicate with the computer.' and the voice says 'Problem communicating with the printer.'

I have checked all connections, firewall, software, usb ports, and it is definitely plugged in and all connected up! I'm at a total loss here and I have a deadline! Help please!

Try to make un-install drivers for the printer, then reboot and install driver agin.
I think, it might be your driver currepted and cause this problem.

Please post your feed-back.

It could be just a slight communication issue. Try to unplug your printer from your computer. Then unplug the printer from the power source. Replug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, replug it into your computer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues.
