No the printer is perfect , but many times this error occurs after changing the cartridges.
first remove all the external connections from the printer.OFF the printer remove the power plug.hold for a minute.then plug the power cord and then ON the printer ,connect the printer to the computer by USB wire as regular.and then check by giving printouts.if it still shows the same error.

then try this
1)right click the my computer icon
2)click properties and then click hardware n go to device manager.
3)uninstall all usb ports and then scan for hardware changes
4)ur pc will detect your printer and ask for printer drivers
5)re load drivers and your pc will communicate with your printer
6)for reloding install the cd follow the instructions on the screen and click next
7)restart when the printer is loded.connect the wires and cords properly.


thanks.

Dell V510 printer worked fine wirelessly until we got a new Belkin Router


The printer's IP address most likely needs to be changed.
Check the Belkin's IP address range (it maybe 192.168.2.***) and configure the printer's IP address accordingly.

Is offline how can I bring it online


It could be just a minor communication issue. Try to unplug your printer from your computer. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset itself. When your printer turns on completely, reconnect it to your computer. If problem continues, you may refer to these articles for further troubleshooting:
- 'Communication Not Available' Error Message and Print Job Stalls in Print Queue - Error: "Problem communicating with the printer" or Bogus Error Messages
You may also contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. Thanks.

    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.
