You know what, this personally happened to me with a dell 922. Fro the life of me, I have no idea what happened. But, here's what I did to fix it. Knowing that lexmark and dells have problems with remembering things, I flushed out ALL the software, used a program called crap cleaner to delete any temporary files, and unplugged the printer itself for 30 mins. I also Changed the usb cord as well, thinking it might be the cord. Whatever the problem, it seemed to fix it, and I have yet to receive that error again.

Why lexmark s305 on USB sometimes fails with communication error?

You may want to check the sites below for help with regards to your issue.

F-- error code

May I assume you're asking about a Nikon camera and not about a printer or copier?

This indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. This happens with older lenses that do not have the electronics to communicate with the camera. It can also indicate that the lens is not making proper contact with the camera. In this case, remove the lens, clean the contacts (both on the back of the lens and in the mount on the body, and reattach the lens. Gently wiggle the lens to make sure it's making proper contact.

Since you didn't name the "newer" lens I can't tell you which of the two cases apply.

There is a third possibility: that the lens is faulty. If you can get access to another camera body, try the lens on it.

When I try to scan or print a message comes up telling me to ck power and usb connections. I have unplugged and restarted computer 4 times and still have problem

    I have tried to set up this wireless printer on my laptop (windows vista basic). I run through installation and get message - installation complete and the green indicator light is fully on. When I try and print I get message Printer cannot communicate with computer - please turn on 'Enable Biodirectional Communication' in printer properties. I go to control panel/printer/propertie/ports/ and I see Enable Biodirectional communication - the box is grayed out and I cannot enable it. Any suggestions?

    Won't communicate with my HP computer, light in the middle blinks

    Did you change anything with your computer? Operating system? Service Pack?

    If you have two Z65n's and they're both behaving in the same way, there's clearly something happening with the communications coming from the computer.

    Those printers have been around for quite awhile. I doubt there are many still in service.

    If you have changed something on the computer, you might want to try downloading the most recent driver for your configuration at www.lexmark.com.

    Richo 1515 MF Error message: 12320 couldn't find the scanner.

    This is a message on your PC...not the machine itself obviously? Was this scanner ever configured to work on your PC? If not, then follow this link to my comments to someone else about this machine:


    Remove & check cartridge message

    What you could try do is to remove both cartridges, close cartridges cover
    Unplug printer for awhile, at least 30 minutes
    Plug in printer and wait until printer stop
    Reinstall both cartridges
    This is to let the printer reset and do a new installation of ink cartridges

    Cannot communicate with scanner message

    Try an get a USB 2.0 printer cable. Some of the Canon scanners will not communicate quick enough without one.

    All in One Scanner/Printer problems

    Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
