Computer to Printer Communication problem


Uninstall the printer software, then uninstall the printer itself. then reinstall the software drivers first , then the software.
Remember most USB printers need the drivers and software installed BEFORE you connect them to the USB port on the computer.
You also might look in the device manager for any yellow ! or ? in the USB section. This would indicate a USB driver issue. Post again if you need more help...

Try this. and make sure the printer is on for the PC to communicate with the printer. Try this. cheers.select the ports

The computer can not communicate to the printer after installing the software.


Did you install the software first, and then plug in the printer? Or did you connect the printer and then install the software? For most newer USB printers, you need to install the software before you plug the printer into the computer, then at a certain point, their software (not Windows) tells you when to connect the printer.
