Why is My Samsung Printer SX425W Saying Communication Error?

I have a Samsung sx425w printer at home and I use if for my day-to-day work. The printer has been working fine for more than 8 months now without any major hiccups. Recently I updated my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 10 last night. Since the update my Samsung printer refuses to connect to my Windows PC and shows an error which says, "Communication Error". I do not know what the problem is, can anybody help me out here?
