I loaded my Lexmark X6180 printer with the software, and the installation went fine to the finish. But I get a communications error message "cannot communicate." What shall I do to fix?


What is the operating system installed on your 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.





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



1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

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.



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

I got error on printer LBP2900 when connect to my laptop (windows 7) It show communication error but usb connection and software installation no problem. Any idea about it?


Most likely it is a corrupt software installation.
You can try the easy things first: 1) Unplug the USB cable from the computer 2) Reboot 3) Plug the USB cable back into the computer, see if the communication error happens again
If that doesn't work, time to reinstall the software: 1) Go to Control Panel > Add Remove Programs OR Programs (depending on which version of Windows you have) 2) Remove every piece of software related to your printer 3) Unplug the USB cable from your computer 4) Reboot 5) Disable any Anti-Virus or Firewall software that you have running 6) Re-run the printer installation software

Hello, HP's printer technicians screwed up my new


That's pretty crazy! I would have told you to turn the printer off, and unplug it from power. Same thing with the computer. Then follow a few basic procedures.

Better grab a cup of coffee, this is going to be a long one.

I have no idea what changes, the 'tech' implemented on your computer. Would have to undo what the 'tech' did step by step.

I do know one thing, however. Using the Restoration Disk/s, is not going to fix Adobe CS4.

We'll have to go step by step. I can only guide you if you have Windows Vista. (The HP Pavilion Elite e9180t is also offered with Windows 7)

Ready?

Printer:

Printer off, unplugged from power. USB cable unplugged from computer side.

You need to go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
(Left-click on the Windows start button, then click on Control Panel. In Control Panel click on Add/Remove Programs)

When Add/Remove Programs loads, find the HP OfficeJet software listed. Go to the right, and left-click on Remove.

If it asks, 'Do you wish to restart your computer?', the answer is NO.
Close Add/Remove Programs. Close Control Panel. Go back to your desktop screen.
Shut your computer down normally.

Unplug the computer from power. Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of at least Five seconds. Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings. (No, do not take the CMOS battery out)

Now plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on. Let Windows load all the way.

Install the installation CD for the OfficeJet printer, into your DVD drive. Install the software. If it asks you to restart your computer, go ahead, and do so.

After Windows has fully loaded again, plug the USB cable of the printer into the computer. Turn the printer on. You should get a message out of your system tray.
'Found New Hardware', and perhaps another one,
'Found Officejet printer'.

You should now have your printer back online.

Quicktime:
Go to Add/Remove Programs, Click on Change.
In the options given, click on Repair.
If this doesn't do it, go back to Add/Remove Programs, and - Remove, Quicktime. Now go to Apple - Quicktime - Download, and download the newest version for Windows Vista.

(If you need help with this, let me know)

Will add more in additional comments section.

I cant uninstall my lexmark 2400 printer. everytime i go to the add/remove programs it says printer busy try later. the printer is no longer connected to the computer so this is not possible


Try going into the Control Panel, select printers, select that printer, right click it and click remove. If you can remove it from there first, it may stop trying to communicate with it, allowing you to continue in Add/Remove Programs.

810 all in one printer (previously worked ok)


Have you tried unplugging the printer, rebooting and replugging in the printer. Sometimes the system does not successfully complete the communication with the printer. If this doesn't fix the problem,
Check the devices (system folder) in the Control Panel for the printer to see if there is an error indicated for the printer.
Let me know what you find and we can take it from there.

Communication error


Click on start-control panel-printers and faxes. Do you have more than one copy of the printer installed? If so, my advice is to uninstall them all and then do a new installation. But FIRST, make sure there are no jobs left in the print queue. Double-click each printer icon in turn and delete/cancel any print jobs listed. Then delete each "copy" of the printer and finally uninstall the printer using the Control Panel-Add/remove Programs-Epson Printer Software. After you have done all this, turn OFF the printer, reboot the computer and then re-install the printer. Make sure you keep the printer turned off until the installation program asks you to turn it on.

If none of this helps or is appropriate, or you want further information, please report back.

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

Printer shows offline


your next plan of action should be to let the printer reset its self. Unplug the printer for a few minutes then plug it back in. Turn printer on and try to print something. If this does not work then what i would do is use add remove programs and remove the software and drivers for the printer and re install them again. Read and use the manufactures recomended way of installing your new printer. Start off with printer unplugged and usb unplugged then begin as if you bought it brand new. I cant stress enough how important following the manufactures instructions are.
