Q: new Dell computer/old Dell printer

I have connected my old Dell printer AIO 924 to my new Dell XPS 8500. I can't seem to figure out how to scan. I had no trouble with my old computer, but can't scan since connecting to my new XPS 8500. Can anyone help me please? Do I have to get A new driver? If so, where do I get it? Thanks for any help you can give me.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop with Windows Vista OS. I have a Dell 926 printer interfaced to it via USB. Printer driver is installed and the printer does communicate at times with the computer and does a good job printing. However, intermittently when trying to print a document I'll get a message on the computer that says that communication has been lost and print job failed.

I've checked all connections to make sure they are solid and no debris that might cause this.
That has not corrected the problem.
The other thing that happens is that the document I want to print will stay in the print queue/spooler and if I shut the computer and printer down and restart both it will print the job. And it may continue to print jobs but it's just a matter of time.

Needless to say this is frustrating. I can print several jobs in a row with no problem and then I'll get this "communication has been lost between printer and computer". And I have to go thru the procedure above to get the last job printed.

My wife doesn't understand how this works and will try to print the same job several times with the commo problem and then complains when it won't print.....and then they all print when the above procedure is followed.

Any ideas what is going on??? Any fixes??

Can anyone suggest a way to get a dell 770 printer to work on a non dell win98 system?

My friend was given the printer from his friends, but it's a dell and it's pretty muh brand new so he doesn't want to throw it away. It's also better than his current printer

Anyway, he uses the dell install disk but once it begins and runs the setup app it gives a message akin to pirating. Saying something like -this computer does not support dell , or something like - this computer is not a dell.

Can anyone offer advice. I did a search on google and dells' site and here.
I couldn't quite find anything that might lead me to an answer..?

Thanks

Normally I purchase the dell series 9, as dell brand but they were sold out at most places. So I purchased black and color ink from officemax for my dell printer which said it was for series 9 and the type of printer I own. It's the right series and numbers. I placed the ink in the printer like I normally do and my printer tells me there is no ink. I've read online elsewhere that the chip on the cartridge doesn't match the printer. If that's so then officemax shouldn't be allowed to sell dell replacement cartridge. But is there anyway I can fix this?
 

A:Dell Photo 926 Printer / OfficeMax Dell series 9 replacement

If it still prints just ignore it, if not then check to se if the metal is the same on the back of the cartridge and in the printer, if it is then you have a faulty cartridge, if not then the cartridge is incompatible.

Hello,
Could someone be kind enough to help me figure out a weird problem. I am not particularly computer literate so forget my ignorance! I bought a printer HP Photosmart C3100 All-in-One series. I used it on my old computer a compaq notebook (do NOT recommend it to anyone any HP computer in that matter!) I then changed my computer for a DEll XPS M 1330 (Hrr what a jewel! a real pleasure). The only problem is that i have Windows Vista professional on it and the installation CD to install my printer on it seems to be uncompatible or something like that. I can not install it .
May be someone will know what to do. (I hope i was clear in my explaination not sure)
Thanks

So over the past 2-3 weeks I kept noticing that my battery kept dying even though I would shut it down (yes window > shutdown) the computer with a full battery. The next evening I would power up and see that the battery was at 20% from full charge. This is a BRAND NEW as in <2 months XPS 9550. I checked my event log and WHAT THE H@#$??? It is absolutely filled with Dell Foundation Service and Dell Product Registration events all saying  " Power event Handled Successfully by the service." Clearly it is not.. The stupid things run every 10 seconds. So when I think I am powering down my computer, it is being blocked by these services and actually just going to sleep... but it actually isn't sleeping. Its waking up every 10 seconds. Can anyone PLEASE help me determine the issue. Apparently according to update service everything is up to date.

The short version of my question is exactly what the topic says-- Can I install a Dell-provided OEM version of Vista on a non-Dell computer?

But, here's the wordier version giving context, if anyone's interested.

About 10 months ago, I guess, I got a Dell Vostro that came with Windows Vista Home Basic. However, I had no interest in Vista (because I already had a Windows machine) and the very first thing I did was install Ubuntu on it. I still have the Vista reinstall disk, though, which, to my memory, hasn't been used.

Now I'm planning on getting a barebones system and upgrading what I see fit. For the time being, I'm going to use the Windows 7 RC, but I'd like to get the uber-great upgrade deal that they're having to pre-order either the Business or Home Premium version upgrade. So, to do that, I'd need an XP installation or a Vista installation. Is there any reason, legal or software-related, that I wouldn't be able to install Vista using that disk that came with the Vostro?

I heard somewhere that sometimes if you try, it'll say something like "This is not a Dell computer, you evil, evil person" and refuse to install, so I wanted to make sure before I pre-ordered the upgrade. I don't want to get the upgrade and have nothing to upgrade, of course.

I have a new Dell V305 Printer which has Wi-Fi capabilities. We have a large family with two Vista 32bit laptops and two Windows XP laptops. I am wondering if it is possible to connect the printer directly to the wireless network that is set up. There is no ethernet port on the printer so it cannot be plugged into the router, which is up to date. We no longer have a desktop to connect to the printer which would make this much easier.
I have tried searching for the printer with on with my Vista laptop, but it doesnt show up. I know there must be some way to set this up so all of the laptops in the house can wirelessly print a document. Please Help!

I have a Del 1600N Multi function printer that has been in use (successfully) for about two years on my home network. The printer has a built in NIC and is connected via a dedicated 10BaseT line to my network. This printer was working just FINE until I decided to use it as a fax. Some how during that process I must have cleared the network configuration and it stopped being visible on my network.

After some investigation into this I was able to get it back on the network my manually assigning it an IP address. Using the supplied installation DVD, I was able to install the printer onto my two desktop computers (running XP Pro 32 bit) and it works just as well as before.

The problem occurs with my wife's Dell laptop. Before the great "fax fiasco" (as I like to call my stupid attempt to use this printer as a fax machine), the laptop was able to find and print to this printer with very little problems. Now, not so much!

When I went to re-install this printer the first time I made sure that the Dell Printer software was uninstalled (via Control Panel--Uninstall Programs). The first attempt seemed to be going fine. The software detected the printer on the network and it looked like a successful install. However, the test page did not print out! I checked in the "Printer Properties" to make sure that the printer was on line and sure enough, it was. But there was a troubleshooting alert that told me the document didn't print.

A:Dell 1600n Printer not showing up in Printer window

Well, I fixed it.

part of the problem is that the laptop in question has Windows 7 Home Edition. This version of Windows 7 is missing several of the administrative tools that come with Windows 7 Pro. So there is no way to access the PrintManagement.Msc to locate and delete the printer drivers that were not deleted by the Uninstall.

For this you need to first make sure you uninstalled the software, them to need to open Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Just locate the "Run" dialog box and type in "MMC". Another dialog box will show up. From the listing, locate the drivers you want to delete. There are two options. But I used the one that saws delete drivers and software.

Once they were gone I downloaded the latest 64bit drivers from Dell and then installed them. It worked like a charm.

I have been having this problem for months now, I know others have to by viewing postings on other forums. I switch from windows xp to windows vista ultimate. Since than when I turn my computer on in the morning, in order to use the printer I have to uninstall and reinstall. The printer is compatible with windows vista. And I installed all the latest updates from Dell so that the printer can suppossedly work with windows vista.

I have done a ton of other things that I viewed on forums, and nothing helps. As long as I don't turn the computer off after uninstalling and reinstalling it works. Once I turn the computer off, I think what is happening is that it goes back to win-xp.

Help Me Please/I'm ready to throw this printer out, but I know there is nothing wrong with the printer. Thanks!

I've tried the support site but to no avail. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this issue or redirect me to a website, in which I can troubleshoot the issue?

there should be a set-up on the printer to connect to the wireless network and enter your password for the wireless signal
OR
often when you install the printer - you are asked if its networked or USB

I will have a look for the manual online

EDIT
user manual is here
http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/uscorp1/product-support/product/dell-v305/manuals

there is a setup on the printer for networking
It maybe possible to setup via that option

Otherwise follow the network setup in the manual - which does require the printer to be connected by USB cable first

First of all, it does not show on the left side of my startup. It shows printer on the right side, with my other programs. I can't pin it to the startup, because it doesn't give me the option. The only way I see DEll AIO is when I go to printers. It has a check mark on it, so it is set to default. It does not show me anything about where to send my scans to or anything about the printer. The only thing it shows me is what is printing. It will print now, but when I go to scan something, it comes up on the printer itself, that it is downloading scan applications from the computer.

I just received this printer and installed it on my Dell Dimension 4600 and It operates fine. However, I keep getting -- every time I boot up -- that it can't install the "disk drive" drivers. The printer is listed 4 times on the hardware profile under "disk drives" with exclamation points, each of which states that there are no drivers installed. I have tried installing the drivers, removing the printer and un-installing the software and re-installing several times, but each time I get the same notices. I haven't tried the smart card reader function yet, but I suspect this aspect of the printer may be causing the problem. I can't even open a ticket with Dell since they don't yet recognize my express code for this printer.

I would appreciate any input. Thanks.

I have 10 dell #22 cartridges and my printer (v313w) died. I am looking for a list of printers I can buy, using these cartridges. My printer is wireless and cannot communicate with my computer anymore. This applies to both of my Dell Laptops. Any help would be great. Either with a list or a fix for the problem. Tried the dell fix and did not work. Seems to be a printer problem rather than a computer one because printer will not communicate with either laptop. Also defaults to usb rather than wireless.

I have a Dell A920 printer. When I go to print there are white lines through the text and when trying to print thin black text a yellow line prints instead. I thought it was that my ink cartridge was messed up so I got two new ones( black and color) and I keep having the same problem. Ive done all the troubleshoot cartridge things the printer tells you to do so I'm not sure if its the printer itself thats the problem
Thanks!

Either the printer electronics or the print head is faulty, in my view.

You could eliminate the printer driver software on the PC by doing a printer self test (the manual will tell what buttons to press)

Hi, Have a Dell A940 printer am trying to fix for a friend. Have solved one issue, but it's the second issue that has me stumped. I've tried this printer on two different computers with the same results. If printing from Wordpad, Wordperfect, or Word, nothing prints. Printing from my yahoo account results in the yahoo header being printed but not the rest of the email. It also did print a .jpg graphic. So, it seems not to want to print text (unless it's associated with graphics) for some reason. Have checked the basics like margins, set up, paper, etc. And again, tried this printer with two different computers. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.

hey,
i own a Dell All-in-One A920 printer and am looking to replace its ink cartridges. However, ordering them straight from Dell is kind of an expensive venture so I was wondering if there are any compatible ink cartridges out there that I can use with this machine. I'm fairly certain the Dell A920 is the equivalent of a Lexmark machine; so can I buy a certain Lexmark cartridge to work in this printer? Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:Dell Printer Ink Cartridges

The problem with using Lexmark printer inks, is knowing exactly which printer cartridge would fit your Dell. Doing this can also render your printer junk, as in it not printing. If you are not worried about using off brand inks, check through Google for inks that aren't Dell branded but are equivalent.

Does anyone have a list of Dell equivalent printers or know of a site that has the equivalents? Katun.com has a partial list, but I am looking for a complete list (if there is such a thing). I am specifically looking for the equivalent of the Dell 946 all-in-one printer. Any help will be much appreciated.
 

A:Dell Printer Equivalents

Forget about Dell printers, they are cheap heaps of crap, that EAT ink.
Their junk is made by Lexmark (owned by Dell), which sells under its own name as well.
If you want a nice all-in-one, look at these models of Canon:
http://www.consumersearch.com/www/computers/multifunction-printer-reviews/index.html

When buying a unit like this, most people overlook the cost of ink (horrendously expensive from Dell/Lexmark).
Many HP and Dell/Lexmark units come with 1 black and 1 multi-colour cartridge. You need to look for individual colour cartridges, and also check the price of these cartridges.
In this respect it's very hard to beat the Canon prices.

FIRST CARTRIDGE CHANGE ON NEW MACHINE...... Replaced the color cartridge with Dell's brand, shows full ink supply and works fine. Got 3 different black cartridges from outside vendor, all said "low ink" when installed. I've used the ink vendor for years on another printer, they were reliable. Have sent for Dell cartridge in black, probably solve the problem. My guess is Dell has this operation gimmicked so only their cartridges show proper operation. If I am right does anyone know a bypass plan? An outside ink vendor that has the cartridge problem licked? I don't like to be put upon.

A:Dell Printer Ink Alternatives

"good quality" and "alternatives" are mutually exclusive really. It takes years for the alterrnative makers to reproduce the original ink properly, so unless your Dell printer is from 2000-2002 (that is impossible too), then there is no good quality alternative ink.

Dell printers are really Lexmarks and I have heard that you can modify Lexmark cartridges to work in Dells.

Hello Dorothy,
Here is the problem. You plugged the printer in without first installing the USB drivers and program. get all the Vista updates especially .net framework and Java.
copy and paste the links beginning with HTTP
Unplug the printer and uninstall the printer drivers by running this patch: http://support.dell.com/support/down...&fileid=224504

Reboot your computer to complete the uninstallation Procedure
Without plugging in the printer, install the drivers, they can be found here: http://support.dell.com/support/down...&fileid=203947

The program will prompt you to plug in printer.

HI Guys, I am having an issue with said printer, and would be extremely grateful for any help at all. having just installed Win 7 on my Mum's computer, i am having a problem getting this printer to print. it scans and copies as it should, it just wont print, the printer is in good working order, and was working fine on the previous XP installation.

The PC is a dell dimension 5150, with an Intel pentium 4 CPU @3GHz, 2GB RAM, Dell Photo AIO 924 Printer, and Windows 7 x86 Build 7000.

After the installation i downloaded and installed updates, including the dell drivers which showed in win update. during the updating one the dell drivers (dell inkjet drivers) failed. the imaging driver installed without issue. i have tried the vista drivers, everything appears to have installed, the printer is set as default printer, and scans ok, but when i go to print i receive the error message - could not start printer, please check printer configuration. the printer has been configured though.

I am about to re-install and not choose automatic updates, and install the vista drivers on the fresh install, as i am wondering if the vista drivers would not install because of corrupted files from the failed (windows update) install.

I am only visiting at my Mum's, and actually leave tomorrow morning, and really dont want to leave her with no printer, as it will be some time before I am back here.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks

Hi Fabio and welcome to the forum!

The issue of the Dell Photo AIO 924 Printer has also been prevalent in Vista

I've checked the downloads available for your printer in Dell support and it shows 4 available vista downloads, I'd suggest to give those a spin, the drivers and the patch.

Tip: After trying to install the drivers normally and it still fails, you could try installing them in Vista compatibility mode.

Now if all else fails, you could try this - Windows 7 driver solution

Hello,
Just the other day my Dell 720 printer stopped working. It can turn on, and it's still listed in the printer section of the control panel. However, when I try to print a document, it just remains in the queue and nothing happens.
Does anyone know what could be wrong and any potential solutions?
Thanks in advance!
Also, it might be worth noting that I think it started happening when I tried to print something and got a message from my virus software (Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2007) asking if I'd like to approve or deny some software function, it might have said spool...and I could have sworn I hit approve, but I might have accidentally denied it.

You need to give more details, such as the Windows version (98, XP, Vista etc)

For Vista drivers check here:

I'm new to the forum, so be gentle.

I found an ink refill kit (never been a fan, but thought I'd give 'em another go after the last purchase of about 10 years ago) at Costco for $20. In that I hate spending $34 for the Dell cartridges, figured to give it a try.

All works beautifully except that, upon refilling the cartridges, the printer doesn't relay to my Dell PC that it's got a full cartridge. I'm guessing the "reset" function is somewhere in the system settings, but can't find it.

Does anyone know how to reset the "new ink cartridge" on this thing? I love the computers (I've got 4 Dell PC's and 2 of their Inspiron laptops), but their proprietary B/S is a complete scam.

You will always have trouble unless you use the official Dell ink cartridges sold by Dell. They use some tricks, including possible chemical differences to make it impossible to comfortably use these refills you have made.
Of course it is a scam. When a heavy user has a Dell printer, he can easily spend $2000 in ink before the printer fails.
The Dell printer is merely a LexMark printer with a special ink cartridge that requires you to buy from Dell.
Give away the printer, and buy a Canon, HP, Samsung, Fujitsu, or Brother if you want fairness... but do not get an all in one.

Hi all,

I was wondering if anybody knows of a driver for my Dell Photo AIO 924 printer that would work with Windows 7 64-bit? I've already tried the Vista 64-bit drivers with no luck. Does anybody know where I could find a driver?

Thanks, help is greatly appreciated!!

Does anyone else have a problem with their Dell Photo printer giving the error message that states that it is out of paper? My wife can put a brand new cartridge of photo paper into it and it will often state it is out of paper. Any ideas out there???

I have a second hand Dell AIO Printer A940. I installed it with the cd that came with it. The scanner does not work. When trouble shooting it said to go to the AIO Printer Center that I do not have. How do I find just that soft ware to install?
 

A:Dell AIO printer problem

Here is the Dell support and software site for the Dell A940 All-In-One.

Are you using Windows 2000, XP, or Vista? That unit appears to be 6+ years old and was designed for Windows 2000 and XP.

I have reinstalled the drivers and clicked the XP service pack 2 in compatability as I was advised on one site but it does not work - I am very frustrated with the amount of things causing trouble with Windows 7!

Is there anyone able to point me in the right direction on setting up my laptops with my wireless printer. Dell wants to charge 129 bucks for them to guide me through. It's amazing, You buy everything from them, then they want to charge you again to set it up. So I have the printer working with my desktop, I want to connect it to my laptop, its a dell insirion 9300. My desktop is a inspiron 531S. My wireless adapter is a 3300 wireless adapter, to made by Dell. If anyone could help, I would appreciate it.
Thanks,

You buy everything from them, then they want to charge you again to set it up.Click to expand...

Sorry to say but this is any PC company they really only support individual components and they won't walk you through setup things unless its part of a problem.
When you say you have the printer working with you desktop do you mean its already working wirelessly or do you just have it hooked up with a USB connection?

If its USB you have to do all the wrieless components if its already functioning wirelessly then you don't have much you have to do.

From the time the ink is at about a 50% level every time we try to print we get an interactive message that the ink is low and an opportunity to reorder ink from Dell no matter how much we have ordered in the past. This constant interruption is an IRRITATING aspect of the otherwise pretty favorable Dell experience. There must be a way to get rid of these constant error messages.
