    I am trying to get a Lexmark Z22 printer working for my Grandmas pc. It keeps saying "cannot communicate with printer". I have searched google and read many forum posts, and everybody says the usual, drivers, check the cables etc. I have tried three different drivers, the one that came with the printer, the one loaded with xp, and a newer one from Lex. Nothing works. I brought the printer home and hooked up to my pc and it works fine. Anybody have any thoughts whats causing this? BTW, were both using XP Pro.

    could be a bad cable or bad port (assuming it's usb). try a different port, then cable and see if that does it

    it seems to have both parallel and usb1 (here)

    so now my question is, which one are you using? if one doesn't work, have you tried the other?

    then I'd suggest you try a new cable or switch to the usb and see if that works.

    It works fine on my computer, already tried different cables. Im stumped. Its a piece of crap anyway, the cartridges are waaay overpriced and dont last long at all. Ill try to convince her to get as Epson or anything better than Lexmark.

    if she's had her pc for a while you may want to make sure the ports are free of dust
