My Dell V305 only prints occassionally. An error

My Dell V305 only prints occassionally. An error message constantly comes up saying "communication not available...The printer cannot communicate with the computer. Try these solutions..." I have tried all the solutions - turned on and off everything, disconnected & reconnected the cable, and restarted the computer. It only ever works when it wants to! What can I do to get it to work everytime, first time?

I used to have a Dell all-in-one and had same problem.
I asked Dell for new installation disc and re-installed it and that seemed to to solve the problem.

Dell v305 printer allignment problem


Hello Michelle,

You are using Dell Series 9 ink cartridges, correct?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 9 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 9 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)
photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

It's possible to get a Dell Series 9 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Bhautesh,

I just got new ink cartridges for my Dell V305 and it says that there is an alignment problem that can not be automatically fixed. There is no tape on the cartridges. What to do?


Hi

I believe the the carriage of the ink cartridge had jammed. Open the cartridge door and turn off your printer. Move the print head from left to right and from right to left. Close the printer door and try to print again if the error message disappear.

Please let me know if you need more help

wolfhaus: Did you try creating another user account 'Administrator' or 'Standard' and see if it will print from that ?. Let me know if this helps or not.
