Error Message "Communication Not Available

Ï have a Dell All in One 810 printer installed on a Dell Laptop Inspiration 6400 and all functions work.. I have tried to install the same printer (free standing on clone Desktop with windows XP. All signs are that the device is detected and connected to the UBS port. All other settings appear to be identical to the Dell Inpiration 6400 but the error message "Communication Not Available "keeps comming up. I have followed all of the troubleshooting clues without success. What do you suggest.

    i Have the same problem. I followed the advice provided to unintall all
    other Printer driver , boot and reinstall the dell 810 software. The
    theory was that the Dell driver was being overridedn by the HP drivers.
    This did not work. The printer report indicates that the printer is
    printing but the message is not communicating at this time. Are ther
    any suggestions.

I have a dell i810 and a HP dv6 laptop running windows 7 64. Ever since i upgraded from vista I cannot get my printer to work. The scanner works just fine however, whenever i try and print something the error "could not communicate with printer" appears and nothing prints. There is no avalible patch for this printer. Under the Devices and Printers tab on the start menu i right clicked all the printers and removed them all. I have tried reinstalling and still the problem persists.? anything else guys?

810 all in one printer (previously worked ok)


Have you tried unplugging the printer, rebooting and replugging in the printer. Sometimes the system does not successfully complete the communication with the printer. If this doesn't fix the problem,
Check the devices (system folder) in the Control Panel for the printer to see if there is an error indicated for the printer.
Let me know what you find and we can take it from there.

Dell 810 All-In-One InkJet Incompatible Ink Cartridge error message


Well, first off ,it's dell's fault, not yours. Even Official Dell cartridges are temperamental at best. The cartridge error you are explaining is common with Dells. They even have what's called a marriage issue, meaning the cartridge will work in only one single printer. However, I'm not sure how to fix it. Sometimes, you can install a new one and the other cartridge you never touched gives you fits, and goofs up. I'd say get a new printer. Dell is increasingly getting more stingy with their ink, and truth be told, I don't think their quality (*lexmark makes dell, so stay away from them too) matches HP or canon. If you want the best cost per page, get a canon that has individual ink cartridges. They are easy to refill, and print a great picture. You pay more $$ up front, but you'll save a ton in the long run

New installation 810, printer works A1, scanner won't work


Uninstall and reinstall the software. Normally the software installed on the computer controls the scanner functions for the all in one dell stuff. Check dells site also for any updates that might correct this issue.
