I have a new pc with Windows Vista but a cannot get my Dell A920 to connect to it. The driver disc that came with the printer is not installing correctly because I believe it only works for previous Windows editions.

Believe it or not... the driver is buried on the Dell site for Vista 64-bit. I search and searched ... and there it was.
In any case, I downloaded it, installed it, and it works fine. All the buttons (scan/copy) on the top work as well as printing. Now if I could just get my old XP machines to print to it on the network. But.. I think that is another thread.

I can't get my Dell A920 to print, at all. Also the green light keeps flashing, seems to be constant, than at times it seems to flash 1,2,3 (pauses) 1,2,3. And lastly I get the message saying that the computer can't communicate with the printer. I have read all there is to read with regards to the trouble shooting tips. I dont have the owners manual but am certain the problem can be fixed maybe by holding the power button or some thing of the sort. I have a very important paper to hand in soon and am in serious need of help. Thanks for any assistance. BTW...did i mention that it's a very important paper....due the 19th....please help...lol, thx:)

Hi. The flashing code signifies that there is a fault with the connection between the ink cartridge and the printer - usually because either the tape is still on the cartridge or maybe some glue from the tape still on the contacts. In my case, I think the cartridge was simply knackered, so I threw it away and opened yet another ink cartridge. It now works fine.
If you want to test yours, simply take out both ink cartridges, and re-insert them one at a time. If you've put a working cartridge in the flashing will stop; if you've put the dodgy one in it'll still flash. Just replace the dodgy one.
Hope this helps.

I am having issues with my printer having a communication error with my
computer. Whenever I try to print or scan from the computer, the error
"Communication not Available" comes up on the computer screen.
I have removed & installed the drivers many times, I have reloaded the USB drivers many times an run the DELL patch from their website many times, all with the same result. The drivers I have been using are both from the DELL website and from the original CD, both with the same result. I have also turned off my firewall temporarily, still with no luck.
Last night I spent 4 hours on the phone with DELL, and all they did was exactly what I have already done.
Is it the printer, my computer or is it something on my computer OS that is blocking the printer?
I am running Vista Home Premium on a DELL computer. communication problem
will not print.

Found on another forum. For 926 this worked great.
1. Go to Control Panel - Printers : Delete 926 printer
2. Go to Control Panel - Programs and Features : Uninstall All Dell 926 related software. There should be 3 programs. (When prompted to restart, respond to wait.
3. Rename Folder C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32x86 to W32X86OLD
4. Now restart your computer
5. Reinstall 926 Software.
This worked terrific for me.

I need a driver for a Lexmark X1150 or Dell A920 printer. How do I go about it?
Posted by LawrenceB on
my printer abruptly quit working several months ago in the middle of a print job. now whenever i try to print or scan something, the printer acts completely normal but produces a blank page each time. i uninstalled and then reinstalled the software but no change. any help??? do i just need to take it to the dell store?
Posted by Lauren... on
Try to print first a self test page on the printer. Does it print a blank page also ? Do you have good or new ink cartridges in the printer ? Let me know.

My Dell A920 prints everything except envelopes very nicely. When I use the format in Microsoft Works with return address and addressee and click print everything normal happens except the printer puts NO INK on the envelope or anywhere else. It makes the printing noises and the window showing ink levels and print progress etc is up there but when the envelope comes out is it blank!!!

I have(had) the same problem using the Dell A920 printer on a Dell compunter running XP. After spending a hour trying to find a solution on the internet, I finally found a solution on my own. When ready to print a envelope. Go to File/Print Click Properties button In lower right hand corner, check "Print Color Image in Black and White" box Click OK button Click OK in print pop up When finished, repeat to uncheck "Print Color Image in Black and White" box to allow for color printing.
