Hi,

First, Make sure that the printer is properly plugged in to a working electrical outlet and that it is hooked up to the computer as indicated. There should be two separate cables running out of your Dell 924, a power cord and a USB cable that communicates with the computer. If both of these aren't plugged in, then the machine will not function properly.

If the lights on your printer aren't working then it means one of two different things:

  • Printer has an internal electrical problem and needs repair or
  • Printer isn't receiving power from the outlet or power cord
Check whether, are you getting power from the socket by connecting some other component..If it works check whether the Power cord is propwerly connected, try pressing the power cord once..

If not the circuit may be damaged, Which cant be repaired inhome, you have to return to DELL service center and make it repaired

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

USB connection not being recognized on Imageclass MF4270 all of a


First make sure that the USB cable is OK and use another if you have one. Then make sure that the laptops have working USB ports from Device Manager. If they are OK then try powering up the Canon again without the USB cable connected to see if any errors are reported and then plug it in to your laptop to see if it is recognised. Check the status of the Canon Print Driver settings. If this all fails then you may have defective USB ports on the Canon and will need to get them repaired.

Bjc2100 install disk won't work on my laptop. I use Windows Vista system.


The BJC2100 install disk came out when Windows 98 was in its heyday. It will not work in Windows Vista. The Windows Vista OS already has a driver imbedded that will work with your BJC-2100. It "should" recognize the printer and automatically install the driver. If it doesn't, try the "Add Printer" feature, select Canon as the manufacturer, and look for the BJC-2100 Series driver.

Officejet G85 printer


If you previously were using a parallel connection for the G85 you will need a USB cable.

If your laptop is running Vista the G85 will work as a printer, I do not think there is a scanner driver for Vista for the G85. The G85 print driver is built into VIsta, you only need to turn on the printer and install the USB to have the printer automatically installed.

Windows does not recognize usb device


Probably broke a solder point. Need to take in for repair, or find a friend who is an electrician.

Note: Needs to use low heat solder.

Canon BJC-250 Printer


sure...you may need to add the printer, again, after removing it. Also, did the new dell Vista disk for drivers and utilities come with? I'd advise going to Canon's page, and getting a more recent driver. The old disk from Dell or Canon, MAY NOT have the most recent driver set. Also, if you're using the print manager, that's a new download, for certain.

Laptop wont recognize USB connection to turn printer on


Yes, you need a separate power cord, as this printer needs more power than a USB cable can provide. It should have come with this power cord, but if it didn't you will have to contact the store you purchased it from, or Canon directly, for the cable. If it only has 2 prongs, it's not using a standard PC power cable, so you need the specific one made for your printer.
