Question about Dell Photo 964 All-In-One InkJet Printer
After one print with the Dell 946 it will not print and I get a bot that says Commuication not available. I disconect and reconnect all cables and it does the same thing. One print and then non. I have reinstalled the printer software and driver several times and it is always the same response. I had Dell support work on it twice and still one print and then no print because of Communication. I have a Dell XPS with Vista for Home.
Can anyone help?
