Please do a clean download and install in this manner:


Uninstall the old software by going to Start>Control Panel>install and uninstall>scroll down until you find your printer if it is still there and click on uninstall.
Turn off the machine and unplug it
Turn off all your running programs including your virus control
(look in the lower right corner and click on each little icon there and turn off everything you can)
Now download the driver and SAVE it to your desktop
Click on it to install and follow the directions carefully. When it is finished, if it has not told you to reconnect your printer, do so now.
Restart your computer.

Good Luck. Please let me know if this works and rate my solution. Thank You.

Canon LBP6000. Data transfer to the printer timed out, or a transfer error has occurred. Click [Resolve Error] to resume printing, or click [Cancel] after pausing the job, then try to print again.


Best to un-install the printer drivers, softwares related to this printer. Go to Canon.com and download the latest drivers and software. Connect the printer to the computer and let the computer recognise it and then install the drivers from your download. You can also check if there is any damage to the cable as this could also stop the communication between the computer and printer.

Wont print from computer


This sounds like a communication problem. Try to uninstall the Lexmark driver and download an updated driver online: http://bit.ly/McHL54

If it doesn't help, check your security software (firewall) if all Lexmark applications are allowed. You can also try to update the firmware of your printer: http://bit.ly/ghfW8H

Printer (z816) cannot communicate wih computer (WinXP) though it communicated with earlier computer, also XP, and though I installed printer software.


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. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the 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 a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Print mode does not work pages come out blank


It could be the cartridges in the printer. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert both cartridges. Reconnect the printer into your computer. Try to print again.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer.
  1. Click Start > Programs or All Programs > Lexmark Z2400 Series
  2. Click Maintenance > Clean Cartridges.
  3. Click Print.
  4. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.
  5. If print quality has not improved, then wipe the cartridge nozzles using a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from possible dirt and clogs.
You can also reinstall the printer driver on your computer to repair any corrupted files necessary for printer communication and processes.
