It could be a driver problem where the computer system won't able to detect the hardware completely. Try installing the driver of your printer and try using other ports if it is a USB one.

Printer keeps saying busy printing another document


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 pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


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

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer 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, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

It says HP psc1315 printer is offline and won't print. how do i fix? wont change back to online also one document at front of queue wont delete


Reset your printer. To do this, turn off the printer using the power button, remove the cartridges, unplug the power and the usb cables. Press the power button for several times. Connect the power cable and also the wall jack, power on (don't connect the usb cable). While the printer boots up, keep pressing power button several times. Leave it for few minutes and again switch off. Now connect the usb cable as well and insert the cartridges. Shutdown the computer. Power on the printer and also the computer (Note when you power off/on, use only the power button). This will fix your problem. If possible, please reinstall the drivers for your printer before you restart it with the pc. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Al-1540 only scans, wont print says-data could not be sent to pri


it seems that the computer was trying to send the data to the printer through the wrong port. i went to the control panel in windows xp, and selected printers and scanners. and added a new printer (manually) as al-1540 cs on usb port 2. it alerted me that the software was not signed, i proceeded anyways. it asked if i wanted to keep the original printer , i said yes. and the test page printed away. so i would suggest people with similar problem to keep adding multiple copies of the printer again and again on usb ports 1,2,3... etc till it prints the test page. use the copy no. indicated in the printed test page to do all your print jobs in the future.

have you removed the protective tape on the nozzle and copper contacts of the printers? while the printer is on, remove all the cartridges. now unplug the power cable from the rear of the printer. the printer would power off. now press the power button 10 times. now plug back in the power cable and replace all the cartridges. now try to print.

Print wont print


Hello, You may check to insure the USB cable at the printer or at the computer is connected properly and didn't come loose by chance. Try disconnecting the USB cable from the computer, wait ten seconds then reconnect. This will let Windows "find" the printer again. Worse case scenario, you could delete the printer through device manager, reboot you computer and Windows will "find" the printer and reinstall the driver automatically on restart. Also check that the ink cartridge(s) is seated properly.
