When i try to print something a window pops up that says "communication not available" ive tried restarting, unpluging the power cord and the usb cord...nothing seems to work


This problem could be caused by several factors - incorrect USB port selection, your printer is not set as your default printer, firewall, etc. This article in the Lexmark website: Communication Not Available' Error Message and Print Job Stalls in Print Queue will help you determine the cause and resolve your printing issue.

if still you get the same error
click next if you have next highlighted and go to the next step and select the third option from the screen that will be contiue installing the printer
complete the installation
if the next is not highlighted then add an exception in nortan as well for guidelines open hp.com and in the search bar type c01633677 and open the document select nortan and see the instruction to add exception
if still problem persists let us know

Lexmark 9350 don't recognise the computers when trying to scan


1. If you use buttons on the printer to scan, check your firewall settings. Make sure the "program control" settings allow the printer files. Google your firewall and printer model to get the file names and specific instructions.
2. Check your firewall settings anyway (program control and trust control -- ip address of printer should be trusted).
3. You said your printer worked for a few days. If you're running Spybot on all your computers that might explain why your printer drivers worked for a while and quit. Spybot is a good program, but it sometimes displays scary messages about something having tried to change the registry. The message comes up on a restart--sometimes several days after installing a good program. User selecting "no" disables newly installed (good) program.

If all else fails reinstall the driver on every machine, restart immediately and pay close attention to any firewall or spybot quesions. Search your computer, then Google anything you're asked before answering it.

Hope one of these helps solve your problem.

Printer locked on printing


Try changing your firewall, it worked for me. I got my 926 a year ago with my Dell and had no problems until I replaced my expired Norton w/a freebe that was very aggessive then the problems started. Would not comunicate sometiimes and when it did it printed once than froze. Would not delete printed doc or print the next. I remembered that McAfee made my old Emachine freeze or crash. Put Norton back on and no more problems. Hope this helps you.

Lexmark x4580 connected via USB will allow printing once when computer started after that comuunication problem error received every time. I have checked all firewall settings on Mcaffee and Windows (all...


1) Disable both firewalls and see if it prints.
2) If it prints, then it's a firewall roblem. Enable your Windows firewall first. If your printer works just leave the McAfee firewall disabled. You don't need both anyway but leave the ant-virus enabled.
3) If it doesn't print with your Windows firewall enabled, try it the other way. Windows firewall disabled, McAfee enabled.
4) If it doesn't print in any of these cases try re-installing the software for your printer.You will want to make sure that McAfee is totally disabled (anti-virus and firewall) and turn off off your Windows firewall. Here are the steps for re-installing software. If you don't have the cd let me know and I'll provide you with a link for it.
Removing and reinstalling the software
If the printer is not functioning properly, or if a communications error message appears when you try to use the
printer, you may need to remove and reinstall the printer software.

1 Click Start �� Programs or All Programs �� Lexmark 3500-4500 Series.
2 Select Uninstall.
3 Follow the instructions on the computer screen to remove the printer software.
4 Restart the computer before reinstalling the printer software.
5 Click Cancel on all New Hardware Found screens.
6 Insert the CD, and then follow the instructions on the computer screen to reinstall the software.
Note: If the install screen does not appear automatically after you restart your computer, click Start �� Run, and
then type D:\setup, where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive.

If this fixes your problem please rate this as fixed. If it doesn't and you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you out' I'll be waiting to see how it turns out. Thanks.

Lexmark Printer Install - No Communication Error


1st -make sure that the USB cable is connected on the correct port of your printer - you might be plugging it on the ports of the telephone - you got 3 ports there - 2 for the telephone ports and 1 for the USB

2nd- check your service if print spooler and lx devices are started (lexbce or lxdcu) - if not.... start it
>start >run>type services.msc > enter

3rd- if still no go - uninstall your driver and download windows vista x64 printer driver on their website
