Hello, Sorry to hear you having issues with you laser printer there Paul.
It appears you tried allot of diagnosing yourself , and have made a conclusion that a communication board might be bad. However at lot of these printers have further issues beyond what we as techs might think. Have you tried another cable that goes from the computer to the printer?
Does the computer even see the printer as a device?
Most of these are usb
ran printers where in rare occasions the cable could be bad, or the actual usb
port not being supportive. You said you tried another computer so this would not be a usb
port of any kinds as the problem area, I would give another cable a shot, if that does not do the trick then I would call it a bad communications board and pretty much replace the printer as repair could be costly.
