For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).

3 Ways to Disable the Dell Ink Management System

The Dell Ink Management System observes the ink levels in Dell printers, shows a message notifying the ink level and provides the option to purchase ink only directly to the Dell. Though it saves the time of business users, it's no more useful if you want to buy the ink from an office supply or third-party store. If it often shows a message to purchase ink when using the Dell printer, you can turn it off with the help of technicians on the Dell printer customer support phone number. To disable the Dell Ink Management System, you can continue with the following three ways:

Use the Software Option Menu

1. Click the Start menu and then 'All Programs.' Choose the 'Dell Printers' option from the group of programs and select the Dell printer.
2. Click on the 'Maintain/Troubleshoot' section and choose the 'Ink Level' option.
3. Click the 'Advanced' tab, followed by the 'More Options' sub-menu.
4. Click to select the 'Never display the printer status,' and then the 'Never show low ink messages' radio buttons.
5. Click the 'OK' button, followed by the 'File' section. Choose the 'Exit' option from the drop-down menu.

Disable the Printer Connection

1. Click the 'Start' button and pick the 'Devices and Printers' option. The Devices and Printers screen will appear.
2. Right-click on the Dell printer and choose the 'Properties' tab. Click the 'Ports' button and deselect the 'Enable Bi-Directional' support check box.
3. Click the 'Apply' button, followed by the 'OK' option.

Uninstall Dell Ink Management System

1. Click the 'Start' menu and choose the 'Control Panel' option.
2. Click the 'Programs' section, and then the 'Programs and Features.'
3. Find the 'Dell Ink Management System' feature in the program list.
4. Click on it to choose the 'Uninstall' option for removal.

After disabling the connection between your PC and the printer, you can still send the print jobs to your printer. If you face any difficulties, instantly look for the Dell printer technical support and seek solutions.

The print-head part of the cartridge is probably clogged / dried up. Remove the cartridge and wipe with a link-free rag dipped in rubbing alcohol. Wipe several times until ink appears to be flowing from the print-head and reinstall. Do the alignment / and cleaning routines if needed and try to print.

If you do not have the install CD that came with third-party software (or you have a OS that is not compatible with that software), you will need to get a OCR program. SimpleOCR (http://www.simpleocr.com/Download.asp ) is free but doesn't handle pages with columns well. (It merges across the column breaks instead separating the paragraphs.) It also doesn't handle handwritten text. This software outputs to a file for a Word Processor (such as Microsoft Office's Word). Most word processors either come with a PDF converter or have one available as an add-on. The commercial OCR software packages will include the save as a PDF function and do not have the limitations of SimpleOCR; although they also default initially to a format for Word Processing (to correct any mistakes). (I have used OmniPage at times personally.)

With most all-in-ones, if you have the full software installed, there will be an option for saving as a PDF. (This is true even on the versions that weren't bundled with OCR software.) If you have a generic OS driver or the basic driver, this will usually not be available Take a look at the screens that come up if you start the scan from the computer. (There will be a place to adjust settings, including the resolution and the output type.) This won't be editable unless you go through the OCR software.

I hope this helps.

It is a little known fact that ink cartridges do have an expiry date, and it is sometimes possible that even if a printer reads full, that it has dried out and will not print. When you recieve a warning that your ink is too low you will simply be unable to print black ink after a certain point. Generaly if you want to print in only black you will have to do that when you print a document. For instance in IE when you go to file and then print you can select prefrences and select print in greyscale or black. hope this helps!

Hi, my name's Cody, and I'm a member of the Windows Vista Outreach team. We're always interested in helping folks with any questions or concerns they might have about Vista, so hopefully I can point you in the right direction towards solving this problem with your printer. I'm certainly no technician, but I hope I can be of some help, or at least point you in the right direction towards getting your printer working again!
A good place for you to start might be by looking at Microsoft's new Windows Vista Compatibility Center, which you can find at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Default.aspx.
I did a search on your Dell printer there, and it says that the printer should be completely compatible with the 32-bit version of Windows Vista. They provided me with a link to the Dell website, which gives you step-by-step instructions on how to install the most up-to-date drivers. The link is a pretty long one, but here it is:
Hopefully, that will get you up and running again. Let me know if you make any progress, and if you still have problems, please let me know!

I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then close the printer after it powers on.

It worked for me.
