When trying to print, you get a communication error; the device is correctly detected in the Device Manager, the firewall is not blocking any files and you can scan using the All-In-One Printer.

Step Action 1 Go to Control Panel 2 Go to Programs and Features 3 Uninstall AMD USB Audio Driver Filter
