Question about Dell V305w All-In-One R840635AU InkJet Printer

Open Question

V305w communication is not available problem

Same v305w communication is not available problem more than a month now. It's ridiculous. Have installed and uninstalled several times without luck. I wonder if it's a manufacturers defect as the cable and usb pc ports work with other devices and there should be no question of pc and printer compatibility as the pc is a dell studio 540 with vista home premium. Has anybody even got a working solution from dell?

Found on another forum. For 926 this worked great.
1. Go to Control Panel - Printers : Delete 926 printer
2. Go to Control Panel - Programs and Features : Uninstall All Dell 926 related software. There should be 3 programs. (When prompted to restart, respond to wait.
3. Rename Folder C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32x86 to W32X86OLD
4. Now restart your computer
5. Reinstall 926 Software.
This worked terrific for me.

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.

Cannot uninstall WinFax Pro 10 even after doing manual uninstall.


For the next 12 hours you can download for free cleanse UnInstaller Pro At Giveaway of the Day. Install it and then keep attacking every bit of Symantec you find on your computer. You may have to go back several times and keep on deleting more pieces of the programs that were there but this truly works. It's the only program I found so far that could get rid of WinFax Pro including the stuff provided by Norton. Good luck
