Can I fax with my HP c4280 All In One printer


Not directly. The C4280 doesn't connect to a phone. You can scan a document on it, then fax it from the computer if the computer is connected to the phone system.

Changed the ink cartridge and now the printer doesn't recognize the computer.It says the printer is idle. What do I do?


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.

My Lexmark z2300 sends to the printer & it says it's printing, but it doesn't actually print. I've tried several file types & programs to print from but none of them work.

Wi-fi connection has stopped working. Green light is steady but will not print. Get message saying the computer and printer can not connect.


You need to plug in the original USB cord that came with the printer. Once that is done, try again, the computer should re-dectect the printer. If it doesn't, then a security setting on your wireless has recently changed. If so, then you need to re-run the setup that came with your printer.

DETAILS DONT SPECIFY WHERE TO CONNECT PRINTER- APEX AX3400G-U4802 computer


As this doesn't machine doesn't have a Parallel Port the only way to connect a Printer is via the USB.

If you've only got a printer with Parallel connection you need to get a Parallel to USB Adapter.

There are 2 types of Adapter depending on what type of connection your Printer has (examples at links below).

http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-SBT-UPPC-Parallel-6-Foot-Printer/dp/B0007UVRVO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310762929&sr=8-1

http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-16899-IEEE-1284-Parallel/dp/B000UX21PY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1310762929&sr=8-2

These are just examples to show you the 2 types and cheaper options are available.

Lap top fires up and then just sticks on the Acer logo, Any ideas ?


Hi there!

Is there any USB device connected to the laptop like printer, USB memory stick, scanner, etc? If there is, I suggest you remove it before starting the computer.

If there's nothing connected to the computer then it is a possible hardware problem. If you know how to open the computer, I suggest to remove the memory and place it back. if that doesn't work, it might be another hardware causing the problem. Call ACER so they can help diagnose the problem. If the computer doesn't warranty from ACER, I suggest to bring it to a qualified technician.

Hope this helps.

Hp photosmart 7850 doesn t make conection whit my hp pc


Do you have windows xp for os ???? If so deinstall your printer on your computer and disconnect your usb connection.

First install the driver by putting your cd in your computer...Some product will tell you when to connect your usb cable to your computer...if not, make sure your driver is correctly install. After, reboot your PC and plug-in your usb cable and power up your printer....
