You can't plug one printer into two computers. USB connections only allow a single connection between the device and a computer (although you can daisy-chain multiple USB devices off of one computer or each other).

Remove the connection from either the laptop or the other computer and get the sole remaining computer attached to the printer to recognize the printer again.

Cant print nothing


Try unplugging your usb cable to the printer, uninstalling the printer software, reinstalling the printer software, and plugging the usb cable back in when instructed during the installation.

I got it hook up to my laptop and i wanted to print out 1 or 2 pictures. And it wont print.


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, then try to print/scan again.

I need help with my dell printer. it wont print


Hi, Malcolm.

If there are no jobs in the queue, be certain that your USB cable is snug.

If still a problem and there are jobs in the print queue, go to Printers and Faxes and delete your Dell printer icon.

Disconnect the USB cable.

Restart your computer.

Reconnect the USB to your computer.

Your computer should see your printer. Install the printer driver.

If still a problem, let us know if any error messages and please provide more details including your printer model.

Hope that helps.

Printer and computer no communication


Unless you have a wireless router to conduct traffic, you won't be able to print wirelessly to the AIO 966.

You will need a cable (and it's possible the printer didn't come with one). You'll need a USB A-B cable to do this. You can find one at any office supply store, Radio Shack, Target... it's a common part.

Then with with laptop and printer on, plug in the cable to each and Windows should recognize the device and you'll be able to print.

Has it printed correctly before?

(1) Try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

(2) Update the USB drivers

It might be time to, but try these first:

(1) Try rebooting the computer (Press Ctrl+Alt+Del>Shutdown>Shutdown OR press and hold the power button down on the front of the workstation/computer/tower/CPU until the unit turns OFF)

(2) If that doesn’t work, then try clearing the print queue: Start>Settings>Printers>Double-click on the printer>Right-click on the print job(s) and click cancel/delete/purge documents and try reprinting a document

(3) If that doesn’t work, then try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print

(4) Run a Test Print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

My HP Photosmart C5280 All-in-one Printer doesn't seem to be getting the signal from my Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop to print. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Can you please help? Rudy


Can the printer accomplish a self test print?

Have you tried re-seating the USB or re-connecting the printer cable?

Have you tried moving the USB cable to another port on the computer to determine if it is communicating with the computer. When you un-plug, and re-plug you should get a disconnect tone if the laptop is speaker equiped? Do you get this tone?

Dell Laser MFP 1815 wont print


The printer status showing offline is more then likely a computer issue then the printer. On the printer, use the menu to select "reports" and then select the printer settings report. If the printer prints the report, then the printer itself is working, and it is a communication issue between the printer and the computer. If you are connecting to the printer with a usb cable, then try moving the usb cable on the computer to another port. If this does not work, try deleting and reinstalling the printer.
