Computer cannot communicate with printer


Check if your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If there's an error message on your screen that your black ink is low even if you replaced it, you won't be able to print or scan. It will send a busy signal or communication not available to your computer. If this is the case, replace the cartridge.

If it still doesn't work work, try to reinstall the software: http://bit.ly/d3ftso

Printer error


Hi,

Here a few common problems that your Epson printer and ink cartridge can suffer from.

Improper Installation of Cartridges

A common Epson printer and ink cartridge problem! If you have changed the ink cartridges then you might just receive this error message. The message might state that the cartridge is not installed correctly in the printers. In such cases, re-install the cartridge in the correct manner. If the problem persists then it is advisable that you replace the cartridge as it might be defective. If you still get the same error message on installation of the replacement cartridge then its time that you clean the print head. You could do this yourself or could take it to a repair facility.

Printing Failure

Failure to print documents is yet another common problem with respect to Epson printers. The print heads of Epson printers are sensitive and this sensitiveness is the culprit behind such problems. If the print head is clogged or blocked you will have to unclog or unblock them. This can be done by using a special fluid that is available for just this purpose only. This fluid flushes the print head, and your printer is once again ready to print.

Communication Error

'Communication Problems' are yet another one of the common problems surrounding Epson printers. Once you give the print command you might be shown the message that there is a communication error between the printer and the computer. This means that there is the occurrence of a minor problem. One of the reasons for this problem could be the inappropriate selection of printers from the print options menu. Cable connections should also be checked. Another solution could be the re-installation of the driver of the printer.

Print Jobs that are Slow or Incomplete

These are problems that occur during an ongoing process. The printing might stop midway and then start again after some time. At times, the printing process will repeat itself several times and then finish printing the page. There are times when the page will finish printing, but you will find that it is an incomplete print. More often than not, this is not a printer related problem.

What might have happened is that the driver might have corrupted or a virus might have infected the computer; or a spyware might be affecting the working of the printing process. If such a problem occurs, the best solution would be to scan the computer for viruses and spyware. As can be seen these common Epson printers and Epson ink cartridge problems can be sorted out quite easily.



hope it helps..

Thanks for using fixya...

Wont print with all new ink cartridges


If the error message is only "magenta/cyan low", it doesn't cause any error. The low message stays after replacing ink cartridges if they're replaced too early (before they're indicated as actually empty), it doesn't cause the printer to not work.
However, some other problem might be faulty, or there might be another error message. Try emptying printer queue and print from Ink Management -> Menu/set (twice) to check wether the problem is with communication from pc or if the printer actually is unable to print.

Communication between my computer and printer not available


First check the cables between the computer and printer. Make sure they are all plugged in correctly. If that doesn't work, then remove and reinstall the printer drivers and software.

Memory error


Just do 2 steps:

1. Press Stop.
2. If the display highlight "Resume". Press the OK (Check Button).

The display will tell you that a Non-HP Cartridge is installed and Economode is Disabled.
At least, you can now print. The display will show back again to "Ready".
