Kodak G610 printer dock won's communicate with computer


You know I had this same problem for a while as well. The only solution I found was that I HAD to use the Kodak Easyshare software in order to print anything with it. (That was the case with my XP desktop and my Mac laptop...). But sometimes it still would not spool properly and would require unplugging the printer and plugging it back in to reset.

Printer not communicating with computer


(1) Try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

(2) Update the USB drivers

I cannot connect a dell 720 printer to dell laptop Inspiron 1501 (Vista). It says it is installed but a message comes up that communication is not available.


First, shut down your computer and priner. Unplug both from the wall outlet, Unplug the printer from the computers USB receptical. Next, plug both the computer and printer back into the wall, and turn on ONLY THE COMPUTER. After the computer is fully initialized, plug the printer into the computer's USB socket and turn printer on. A small window on your screen should say:NEW HARDWARE FOUND. it will ask if you want it installed, click on YES. and just follow the onscreen instructions, and make sure your printer driver is compatible with VISTA..To check, go to http://support.dell.com and left click on WINDOWS VISTA SUPPORT. Left click on LATEST VISTA DRIVER UPDATES, and follow the onscreen instructions to check what you have now, and what you may have to download.. If, after downloading and installing VISTA COMPATIBLE SOFTWARE,you still get the communication message, try this: On the windows screen, left click on START. left click on CONTROL PANEL, then left click on PRINTERS. Find your Dell printer icon and RIGHT CLICK on the icon.. On the drop down menu, left click on PROPERTIES. On the Properties window, left click on the PORTS tab. Make sure USB VIRTUAL PRINTER PORT FOR DELL is checked. If no, select that port, left click on the check box, also check ENABLE BIDIRECTIONAL SUPPORT and ENABLE PRINT SPOOLING boxes. Then left click on APPLY, then Ok. The Dell printer icon should show READY. Try a test print to check operation.

Yellow error light on, no display


Try plugging the usb into a different computer if new hardware is not found then the printer's hardware is bad. If new hardware is found on the second computer then uninstall and reinstall the printer driver on the first computer.
