I had a printer that was about 4 years old , and bought a computer with vista on it just recently. When I tried installing my printer it wasn't communicating with my computer. What I found out is that my printer wasn't compatible with my vista, something it had to do with the driver. I even tried downloading a driver so that it would be compatible with my vista,but that still didn't work. So I had to buy a new printer and it works fine.I did everything to get my printer to work with my vista, but nothing worked. I worked on it for like 2 weeks. I hope that I made some sense. I hope it works out for you.

Have you tried turning off your firewall?
That may be the issue.
FIrewalls will block printers. Can you ping the printer and not print to it?

Try TOTALLY unplugging the printer. Power AND input cables. Reboot the computer and reconnect the printer. Some printers hold errors until all sources of power and communications have been cleared.

Ink is out and communication error has occured?


Sounds suspiciously like a Windows problem to me. It may be worth trying to reinstall the printer. Delete the old one in 'Printers', and then reload from XP or Vista, or shove the printer CD-ROM in and reinstall.
