Question about Dell Inkjet 720 Printer

1 Answer

Printer cannot communicate with computer, I tried your suggestion of downloading the latest driver but this did not fix it. this is what I tried before I tried your fix. First I replaced the usb cord thinking maybe that was it, then I removed the driver and reinstalled twice, still will not communicate. Don't know what else to do. Please help. Thanks

Are you removing the printers from the Device manager & then rebooting or how do you do it? What happened to stop it? or did it never work?

HP Office Jet 4630 E-All in One. Installing to print from 2 computers via wireless network. Wont print from 2nd computer.

It's some kind of communication error. I would suggest uninstalling the printer from the second computer. Also, make sure you go to the website for that printer and download the latest driver that was designed for Vista 32bit. If you are using the included software disc it may not have the latest driver updated that fixes this problem.

It may not be an actual problem with your printer. The two things that cause most Communication Errors are a failing Printer Cable and corrupted Printer Drivers. Problems in your actual Computer System [bad software, hardware problems, incorrect settings, etc], can also cause communication errors. You can delete your old drivers and download the latest available drivers.Bad or corrupted drivers can cause many problems. "DEINSTALL" [remove] your old drivers/printer first and then reload drivers.

Reset printer and hope it works.

Computer will not communicate with printer

Ckeck in control panel & se if the driver software installed. It should be listed in Add/remove programs. If it is, power up the piinter & load windows Vista update service. See if Vista has any patches for you're printer. If no, goto Lexmark & go to the driver section for you're P4350 printer software for Vista. While in Vista update, install any updates listed.
Click on the link provided.
Creat a folder on you're desktop & down load the latest driver software in-to the folder you created. Uninstall any Lexmark software that might have been in add/remove programs. Install the driver software you downloaded. If all this still fails, call Lexmark since this is a new printer. The number should be in you're manul.
