    I Have the same problem and seem to come on after my Window XP Pro was updated to SP3. Tried all the suggestion such as unplug switch on & off, re-boot and even uninstal and reinstal the Dell 964 Driver - still not good. I called Dell Phone support and was told that may be the SP3 (like same problem found in the Vista) but they cannot offer solution for now.
    I instal the Dell 964 driver onto my Laptop (with Window XP SP2) and it is working fine. So for the time being I am using the printer with the laptop.
    Suspect the SP3 update similar to the Vista. Will appreciate if there can be a solution by some expert.

Could be a driver issue. Try reinstalling printer driver and see what happens. Also do a hard restart on printer.

SOURCE: Dell Color Printer 725 - Communication Not Available

I have seen that in most of the cases (with lexmark and dell printers) it is fixed by reinstalling the printer software. Be sure that you completely remove the older drivers using the cd or using add/remove programs.

Put brand new lexmark 28 cartridge just 4 days ago. Maybe used 10 times. Computer says ink is low and won't print anymore. However, can still make copies.


It could be just a slight communication failure between your cartridges and the printer. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting them into the cartridge carrier.
I hope this helps.

Kodak 5300 printer problem


I would suggest the following :

1) Remove the Kodak printer and all its software.
2) Disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
3) Reinstall the entire software applications for the printer just as if you were installing it for the first time.
4) When asked to connect the printer .. Use a different USB port .. even if you have to switch something out .. but do this step irregardless.

Now what I want to know is ..
1) Can you print from the computer?
2) Black still "gone" ?

Let me know
