Your computer being fixed may have new operating system files running that are not compatable with your lexmark now. You need updated drivers for your printer. Go to lexmark on the internet (google it) and choose location or drivers list/link. Also, get them to send you a new disk. You will need some proof that you already have the printer but no disk, look on the back of your printer for the serial number. You will need this when requesting help. Once you have your new dik and drivers, you wil be right again.

Disconnect the scanner from the computer. Uninstall driver software, shut down and restart the Comp. Reinstall the driver. (http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0036991.asp?model= ). connect the scanner and the system will report USB device plugged in. This should work.

Why won't my printer scan a document to my laptop?


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your laptop. The software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you still haven't installed the software on your computer and you don't have the installation disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to request for one.
If you were able to scan documents before using your Lexmark printer, it could be just a slight communication issue. 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.).

I have connected the cable from the printer to the lap top correctly but it still comes back saying the the laptop cannot recognise the printer. The connection was bought from Currays and I was assured it...


Hi graham_mcleo
The printer came with a install disc ( cdrom ) .
Disconnect the printer , launch the cdrom , follow instructions and wait for the driver/software to be correctly installed . Connect the printer with usb and power cables , swich printer on . Windows should recognize a new hardware and a message should pop on your screen telling installation was successfull or hardware is ready to use , depending on what system you are using .

The printer wont connect to the computer and the ccomputer wont recognise the disc


you didn't say what make and model of the printer or the operating system you are using.

basicly is you have to install the printer software on the cmputer without the printer connected first.
once that is done, follow the instrucation on the screen and connected the printer to the computer.

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.
