Windows 7: Dell 720 Printer Problems

Dell 720 Printer Problems

I downloaded and installed the drivers for the 720 printer from Dell. Windows 7 shows it as ready to roll. It is even designated the default printer. When I try to print I get the "Unable to communicate" error. I've restarted, unplugged and replugged but to no avail. Any ideas?

Did you first run the install program and ONLY physically connect the unit when the install program told you? If not that could be the problem.

"pudgyone" on the Dell users forum is very knowledgeable and helpful with printer problems. Repost on the Dell users forum Peripheral section and he can get you straightened out. Home - Dell Community
