Computer won't detect printer


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/nJ7AgN. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

I purchased a HP Photosmart C4680 printer a few months ago and after installing it, it was great. I then had problems accessing the internet and after solving that issue with my provider, I was no longer...


Most probably your the printer got disconnected once you made changes in the network settings. Heres what I can suggest...
Uninstall the printer
For win xp: Click on start go to control panel > add/remove programs.
For win vista: Click on start go to control panel > programs and feature > uninstall a program
For win 7: Click on start go to control panel > uninstall a program
  1. Look for the HP Photosmart c4680 driver, then click on uninstall/change/remove.
  2. Another window will pop up, it will ask what do you want to uninstall.
  3. Click on uninstall all HP products associated with this device.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Install the printer using USB, when you got in to the page that says "I have reviewed and agreed the terms and agreement" theirs a link at the top left corner that says "select what to install"
  6. Click on that that link, then the only software that you will install is HP Photosmart c4680, Digital Imaging device function and HP solution center, then the others you have to uncheck it.
  7. Check the check box that says "I have reviewed and agreed the terms and agreement"
  8. Click on next.
  9. After installing it, re-run the disc or the downloaded driver.
  10. Click on add a device
  11. It will ask you what type of connection do you want, click on install wireless/network device
  12. The printer should be detected now.
If you are still having issues w/ it. click here for the next step.
Good luck! :)

Trying to connect printer to my wireless network. I'm getting error 0xc18a0106..what does this mean?


To add wireless printer on a network, first you need to set-up a network to which other systems can get connected. After setting up a network, go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing > Sharing and Discovery. Then, click on 'Printer Sharing'. Ensure that the password protection is turned on to prevent intrusions. Then go to Control Panel > Printers > Add Printer. Select 'Network Printer' out of the two options. After that Windows will detect all the printers on the network. Choose the one you want.

Computer doesnt detect printer ,


Hi billysjenny2

Disconnect the printer from the computer. Then from Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs (Programs and Features in Vista) make sure the printer software is uninstalled.

From Control Panel > Printers make sure the printer doesn't exist. Restart the computer then insert the setup CD and follow the prompts. Connect the printer when prompted in setup.

If you don't have the setup CD then you can download it from http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=60096&

Does this help?

How doi connect to my computer


Usb cable or wireless conect? For usb, connect the usb cable from the printer to a usb port on the back of your PC, windows should detect and install its own driver(add the software later), to confirm its connected, go to start menu > control panel > hardware&sound > printer. Should say ready or online under your printers name. If it says ready or online, try a test print, right click the icon and select properties, then 'print test page' at the bottom. If this works your all good to go., next install printer software if you haven't already.

NO CONNECTION (LAN) on Brother MFC-440CN


I had the SAME problem. I have 3 pc laptops and 1 Mac. The Mac could still print, but the pc's were hosed. I called BrotherUSA and this fixed the problem!

Go to your printer and after making sure it's connected to the network with the Ethernet cable, go to Menu > Print Reports > Network Config. This will print a page that shows your printer's IP address. We need to config that address in your Printer, Fax and Scanner settings in Control Panel.

Go to Control Panel > Printers & Faxes. Right click on your printer > Properties > Ports tab. Click Add Port and select Standard TCP/IP Port. Click New Port and click Next on the wizard. Enter the IP address of your printer in the first field (the second one will auto-fill). Click Next and Finish. Printer's done!

Right click on your PC-FAX in Printers & Faxes and Properties. Click on the ports tab and just check the box that you just created for Standard TCP/IP Port. Click OK. Fax is done!

Go back to Control Panel and select Scanners & Cameras. Right click on your printer/scanner > Properties > Network Setting tab. Select the Specify your machine by address radio button and, if it's not already in there, enter the IP address of your printer. Click OK. Scanner's done!

This will work as long as your router is running. You may need to repeat this process after a power outage or if you need to reboot your wireless router. Not too bad, though! I just wish everything was as easy as a Mac!!!
