Hello,

Have you installed the printer software on your system, if no, please install the printer software on your system and restart the system after the installation of the software on your computer.

But if you have and yet, no still communicating, check the printer cable that connect the printer to your system, if possible, replace it and test with another cable to see if it will communicate.

This should fix the problem, need more information, drop your comment, i will follow up.

Take care.

For that make sure usb cable is working fine.Make sure usb ports of computer is fine try in different usb ports. Make sure printer show online status.If still same issue then uninstall printer driver and usb driver from device manager. For that press windows key +R key on keyboard at a time so you can see device manager then uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install all usb drivers then go to start menu->control panel->add remove program then uninstall printer driver from there too. Download the updated antivirus from below link then install. Click here Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Computer will not communicate with printer


Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.

All in One Scanner/Printer problems


Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
