Try changing your firewall, it worked for me. I got my 926 a year with my Dell and had no problems until I replaced my expired Norton w/a freebe I download & the problems started. Would not comunicate sometiimes and when it did it printed once than froze. Would not delete printed doc or print the next. I remembered that McAfee made my old Emachine freeze or crash. Put Norton back on and no more problems. Hope this helps you.

    Are you F_ING serious!!!!!!!!!!!! Norton just like macafee **** and jam up your pc too much. Microsoft users now we have free seurity and recomended by microsoft, so instead of fighting ur firewall like norton does and jam all up ur pc, it works all greatly now fast and i dont have to do nothing or worry. But since Norton is gone my printer is doing same. NO WAY I GO BACK, hopefully u can get fixed

Hi,

The Dell 926 printer is an All-In-One model that you can use as a printer, scanner and a fax machine. When the printer becomes unresponsive there may be a communication problem between the printer and your computer. To correct this type of problem you need to first verify that the USB connector cable is not malfunctioning. You can do this by resetting the communication settings between the computer and the printer.
y1 Press the "Power" button to turn off the printer. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet or the power strip.

I can print from my Dell 926 all in one, but it wont scan


Try removing your 926 icon in Printers and Faxes, disconnect the USB cable, restart your computer, reconnect the USB cable, see the 926 and install the driver again. If scan has never worked, you probably need a different driver.

Hope this helps.

MY COMPUTER DOESNT RECOGNIZES THE PRINTER DELL PHOTO 926 IT HAS NEW INK


Power off the printer and disconnect the USB (Parallel ?) cable from the printer to the PC. Reconnect the cable. Restart your PC.

If that doesn't work ... go to Start - Printers and Faxes and delete the Dell Photo 926 icon. Then, power off the printer and disconnect the cable from the PC. Power on the PC and log in. Reconnect the cable and see if the printer is found. If so, install the Photo 926 printer driver. If the printer is not found, you have a printer cable or printer hardware problem. Good luck.
