    We had two printers do the same thing for no apparent reason. Threw the first one out and am about to do the same thing with the second one. Wouldn't communicate with the computer, any computer.

LEXMARK PROSPECT PRO 205. HAS A CURRENT SOLUTION FINALLY BEEN FOUND FOR "PRINTER CANNOT COMMUNICATE WITH COMPUTER". LEXMARK CANNOT OR WILL NOT FIX THIS PROBLEM.


Chuck, I certainly sympathize with "tech support" that isn't, and with you on printers that don't get new drivers when new versions of Windows com out.
I'd be happy to enter a dialog with you to try to help you.
Have you tried another computer, hopefully running something different?
What connection are you trying to use? Does the printer have any alternative connection available? (say, USB or network)
When you first plug it into the computer, does the computer sense it's there and look for drivers, or does it ignore you?

Lexmark X1190 problem communicating with computer


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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.

"Communication Not Available" message is displayed


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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc 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 again, then try to print again.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at . Select your operating system, download and execute the file.


If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Computer says there is no communication with the printer


Couple of things to consider and try,,,have you tried another USB device in the computer, like a flash drive? If it can read the flash drive ok then the problem is not the USB port. Try using a different USB cable for the printer. Make sure your computer is up to date with the most current drivers. To me it sounds like a bad printer cable. Another thing to try is having the printer attached and when the error message comes up try wiggling the cable to see if communication is restored. If so then chances are that the printer cable is bad. Hope this helps.

Computer won't communicate with printer


Make sure that the printer driver you are using is compatible with your version of windows. If so, open all printers in "control panel" and make sure that this printer is the preferred printer and not an old one you might still have installed.

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.

Lexmark 1270 all in one


First try plugging into a different USB port. I have seen several machines have a port suddenly die for no apparent reason. If that dosent work, try a different USB cable. Assuming the printer is working, the only thing left is either the cable or the port you have it plugged into.
