Check to see if your printer is set to work offline or not. If this is not checked your printer will only print from outside sources such as the internet. You can check this by right clicking your printers icon in my computer and scrolling down to properties. You will not be able to print anything until your pc believes it has got a connection. At present it is not commnicating with your printer for one reason or another. If the above fails, try unistalling it and reinstalling it and se if this corrects the issue. Post back if you need help in thsi or it does not correct issue.

My printer scans and previews fine, but it won't send the document to my computer. I've tried using the Lexmark Imaging Studio all-in-one 4300 and it won't work, I keep getting this error message and I've...


it's probably because the scanner isn't configured well in the computer. What you should do, while to printer is turned on and connected to the computer is to go to the device manger (right click on "my computer" or "computer", and then go to the tab named "device manager"). go to "universal series bus controllers" and press on the plus sign. you should then have a list, search for "USB composite device" in that list. when you find it, right click on it and then left click on "uninstall" or "remove", approve it (press yes or OK) and after it done, disconnect the usb cable that connects the computer to the printer and restart the computer. only after the computer is booted up completely, you should reconnect the cable. after you do that you should get a pop up that says that new hardware is being installed (or something like that). wait for it to finish and after it says "you new hardware is installed and ready" (should appear near you computer clock), try to scan, it should work fine now. Good luck!

PRINTER WILL PRINT COPY OF SOMETHING BUT WANT PRINT SOMETHING OFF COMPUTER.


This problem sounds like the printer is not set up properly on the computer. Have you installed the software that came with it? If so, look for the printer under control panel and then try a test page. If the test page doesnt work, how is the printer connected to the computer, by USB cable? If it is connected by usb, try shutting the computer down, unplugging the usb cable, restarting the computer and once it is fully started, plug the usb cable for the printer back in. Do you hear a tone after the printer is plugged in? If so try to print again.

Dell Color Printer 725 - Communication Not Available


I have seen that in most of the cases (with lexmark and dell printers) it is fixed by reinstalling the printer software. Be sure that you completely remove the older drivers using the cd or using add/remove programs.

Cable for USB conversion


YES. THERE ARE SEVERAL USB-PARALELL CABLES CABLES IN THE MARKET. JUST CHECK IN THE WEB OR YOUR HARDWARE STORE. PRICE SHOULD BE AROUND 15 TO 20 US DOLLARS, DEPENDING ON BRAND, QUALITY, ETC.
SOME OF THE (MOST) BRIG A DRIVER CD.
ONE THING YOU SHOULD HAVE IN MIND IS THAT WHEN INSTALLING YOU BJC-80 IT WONT PRINT UNLESS YOU GO TO PRINTER PROPERTIES, PORTS AND UNMARK "BIDERECTIONAL COMPATIBILITY", THE GO TO ADVANCED OPTIONS AND CHECK ON "PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER", OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. (SORRY ALL MY SOFT IS IN SPANISH...) RESTART THA COMPUTER AND ENJOY. I HAVE A BJC-70 AND A BJC-80, USE THEM ON XP SP2 AND VISTA. BOTH WORKING FINE. DO NOT EXPECT SPEED PERFORMANCE. GOOD LUCK

I am having trouble scanning with my hp printer.


You may try restarting your computer with your printer connected and turned off, or ensure that you choose officejet 5510 series and not 5510 twain in the scanner wizard. If this does not help, try reinstalling the printer from scratch.

HP Photosmart Printer, Mac won't recognize with USB


Sounds like their is not communications between your printer and computer. Could be a bad USB cable - swap out and see if that fixes it. If not it could be a faulty USB port on the computer or printer. You can check the computer USB port by connecting another device, but there is no way to check the HP's USB port. I would also check printer USB port for dust bunnies! If you're not able to resolve, I think it is time for another printer.

Do the following:

Try a different usb cable.

Plug the cable into a different USB port.

Try disconnecting printer power cable for ten minutes.

Unplug computer power cord for ten minutes and restart.

Reinstall printer drivers.

If that all did not work, test the printer on a different computer, to find out if it is faulty or not.

MFC-8669DN FAILURE


Did you check after installing the printer that you have the printer in 'installed printers' in 'control panel'?
Your printer may have been there, but not set as default printer.
Did you also notice a message popping up first time you connected the printer to usb saying new hardware detected?
Try to install and connect the printer on a different computer ( a laptop will be fine), intalling software first as usual.
If it works is either usb channels on original computer or a windows problem.

If Windows does not see the device when you connect usb (ensure cable is ok) to different computer, and you are sure you are doing everything ok, then it is probably usb printer socket that is faulty.
If Windows see that there is a new device detected, but it cannot install printer, even after doing disk setup procedure fine, then there is an issue either with the printer or with the drivers you are using (they may be for a different operative system for example).

An hardware problem of this kind is rather unfrequent, particularly on a new printer. Check that you are doing everything fine, that the printer is not in installed printer, even if not default one, and that you are using the right setup disk, and that this is performing the whole setup procedure.
