I would go inside the devices and printers and preferences and see if there are any documents pending. Erase those. Check with your little icon on the desktop and check printer status or you could even go to the extreme of deleting canon in add and remove and reinstall from the canon website. Obviously with windows 7 if you just plug in you will get driver installed but printer runs much more smoothly if you first download the software package from canon.com and then link up wirelessly.

But first check that a document isn't pending printing.

Have not got manual for the lexmark interpret s405, so do not understanding controls. Also the printer keeps printing cannot stop it?


You can access the User's Guide from your computer. Just click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > View User's Guide.

If your printer keeps on printing the same document, there might be a lot of print jobs in your queue. You might have sent the same print jobs when you were getting the communication error. Just click on Start > Printers and Faxes > Double click on the Lexmark icon and clear the print jobs in the queue.

If you're frequently experiencing problems communicating with your Lexmark printer, if your printer is connected to your network, make sure that it's getting a good signal from the router. You might also want to update the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

My Lexmark Platinum PRO905 does ot print it gives me the message " Communication Not Available, The Printer cannot communicate with the 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 (if usb-connected), reboot your computer and unplug/replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect the printer into the computer. Try to print again.

When I try to fax a document to another fax Machine ( either via feeder or through software), I am always getting an error message " A communication error occured..." (Error 387)


Definition

There is too much noise on the line for a valid connection between two fax machines to complete. The noise problem might go away over time.

Solution

Retry the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.

if your wireless router has a firewall on it, it will send up that message. I had a problem like that with my Xbox. I had to go into the network setting on the console and put in the wireless router name, router number, etc.. You can also call SONY helpline,(should be inside the PS3 manual) Hope this helps.
