Problem printing with my Lexmark X1185

Every time I go to print something, the error reads "problem communicating with the printer'.

I have installed the printer etc, but to no avail.

The error message also reads that I have to open the cover, ensure the cartirdges are snapped in palce (which they area) and try again... all to no avail.

Any help or ideas would be very much appreciated

Make sure the Lexmark X1100 Printer Driver is installed on your computer.
If the printer driver was already installed and working with your computer, please follow steps below:
A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC.

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.

I just put new ink Cartridges but still wont print


Hello,

Most of the time the "problem communicating with the printer" message pops up on Lexmark X1185 series when the driver gets corrupted. The best fix for this issue would be to uninstall the software first. Try connecting the USB to a different USB port (Please avoid using USB hubs, if any) and then reinstall the software. This should normally fix the printer communication issues!

Good Luck

Lexmark x1185 cartridge error msg


Step 1). Try cleaning the gold contacts on the print cartridge and on the printer itself with a pen eraser and a little alcohol.

Step 2). Uninstall the printer software and reinstall it.

Step 3). If the above two steps fail try a new cartridge. If none of these solutions work there is an electronic problem with the printer and it will have to be professionally diagnosed or replaced.

Hope this was of some help to you.

No Communications Error When Trying to Print or Scan ID:ENUS27546 null.gif null.gif null.gif
What you will see A"No communication" dialog appears when you try to print or scan. What to do Make sure the correct port is selected in the Properties screen. To do this:
    1. Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel.
    2. Double-click on the Printers folder.
    3. Right-click on the printer icon and select Properties.
    4. In the Properties screen, click the Port tab.
    5. Ensure that the printer port is set to one of the USB port options; see below.

    6. Select the port and click OK.
    7. You may need to reboot the PC for the change to take effect.
NOTE: The printer icon may not be displaying in the notification area (the "systray"). Once the port is correctly selected, the icon should appear there.

SCANS BUT WON'T PRINT


This might be a firewall issue. If you are running an Internet Security program that can affect communications with the printer. Try disabling the firewall software, or resetting it so you can grant access to the Lexmark applications needed for printing.

My printer not responding


Ok, so you have tried a reset and no good. Try this again but this time unplug it too, all cords and cables. Replug, turn it on. Wait. Once reset again, check to see no print jobs queued and if so, cancel all print jobs by clicking on start, control panel, printers, icon of printer, scrol to properties, cancel print jobs. Try reprinting now.
