Continually flashing power light on printer
Help! After sucessfully using my A920 Dell All-in-One printer for two years with Dimension 4600 XP, I am now receiving the "printer cannot communicate with computer" message. This change occurred in the midst of a printing project. The power light continually flashes (this is not a jammed, out-of-paper, etc. warning). The driver has been uninstalled & then reinstalled several times, cable & power cords have been checked, unplugged & replugged multiple times. Could this indicate that the printer is just worn out? Thanks for any ideas.

Have you tried searching through Dell's Troubleshooter for this printer?

One thing many people forget is when the printer jammed, did you right click the printing icon in the tray and delete or cancel the failed printing projects? You can delete the printer in Control panel Printers, and I would and then add a new printer and reinstall software, but unless you kill the print job, nothing will work.
