Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

Dell printer won't communicate with computer

My printer won't communicate with my computer any longer.  I have recently had to completely wipe out my computer due to viruses but the printer wasn't working prior to that--I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.  When I plug the USB cord in, my computer recognizes that.  The 'currently printing' box will pop up as well, but it will stop at 50% for example if I'm printing a 2-page document.  But the printer itself will never actually print.  The screen on the printer says "printing" but it isn't.  Copying works fine--just not printing.  I'm SO ANNOYED!  If anyone can help, please do!!  Thanks so much.

    I've had the same problem for almost 2 years now. I've reinstalled the drivers many times, had Dell send a replacement printer and a replacement wireless printer adapater (3300), etc. When I first install the printer (network printer installation), it will usually print okay once or twice, but then print jobs will just start to hang and never complete. I have to clear the print queue, reboot my laptop, and power cycle the printer to get it to print again - and even then it only works about half the time...

    Dell Color Printer 725 - Communication Not Available


    I have seen that in most of the cases (with lexmark and dell printers) it is fixed by reinstalling the printer software. Be sure that you completely remove the older drivers using the cd or using add/remove programs.

    When I hit 'file' then 'print' nothing happens


    Go to your device manager and make sure that you have a driver for the printer. Or uninstall the printer then reinstall it. sounds like the printer driver has been deleted
