It's a Dell 725 running on Win XP.
This morning it worked fine, apart from it printing in dark green instead of black, not entirely sure why it's doing that, and then 20 pages into a 100 page document it decided to delete the document and wouldn't print. Then the printer queue got stuck. Having fixed that, I tried again and it printed 5 pages fine, so I tried 10, fine, back up to 20, froze 2 from the end and wouldn't continue. Hadn't deleted, no error messages, it just stopped in the middle of a line. And now it's claiming the computer can't access the printer. I'm getting this error message;
Dell Colour Printer 725 - USB Port
Communication not available
The printer cannot communicate with the computer.
Try these solutions:
- Ensure the printer is powered on
- Disconnect and reconnect the printer's power cable
- Check your Firewall settings to enable printer communication is not blocked
- Restart your computer
I have done all of these things, all the cables are plugged in, I've restarted the computer twice, the printer many more times and still it doesn't work.
