SOURCE: unable to communicate error

I have to make some assumptions here, let me know if I'm wrong. I assume you're using Windows Xp (Pro or Home). If so, disconnect the printer from the computer. Go to the Control Panel/Add Remove Programs. Uninstall the Dell printer. Go to the Control Panel/Printers and Faxes On Menu bar, click on File come down to Server Properties. in box that pops up click on Drivers/ Click on the Dell printer, click on Remove. Go to: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PRN_INKJET_720&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid= Download the latest driver for your Operating System to a location on your computer so that you know where to find it. Reboot your computer. Go to the downloaded driver. Double click on it. Follow the directions on the screen. It will let you know when you need to connect the printer to the computer again. That SHOULD do it. If it does not, please let me know before you rate this solution. I will try to provide additional information. Ed

Take the plastic strip off the ink jet cartridge before putting the thing in the printer.  Check the ink jets to see if they are clogged.

Dell 720 printer not spooling


printers download the data in bursts from a memory stored in the computer
this spooling of tasks allows a single printer to print the next job and not mix up jobs as they are entered for printing
for this to work you have to install the driver for the printer into the computer and set printer priorities from other print sources

Just bought a new computer and my Dell 720printer does not work? Thank you


If you bought a new computer it probably has Windows 7 installed and the Dell 720 may not be compatible. You can try downloading the Vista drivers from Dell here. They may work with Windows 7. If not, you'll need to replace the printer with a later, Windows 7 compatible one.
