CAN THE DELL AIO 948 PRINTER BE USED FOR SHARING


Yes, If it is connected to a computer on your home network, right click the printer, setup sharing. For example, if you have a laptop on the same home network, Add a network printer to the laptop and print wirelessly without a wireless printer.

While attempting print a document, Dell All-In-One 948 InkJet Printer printed a document that was not opened. How can that happen? I haven't tried anything to fix it because I don't know where to...


Most likely, this document was already in the print queue and never got printed. If that's the case, open notepad, enter the following commands : net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

Save this to your desktop as DeletePrintJob.cmd, run as administrator (right click on it, select run as administrator), then reboot your pc/powercycle the printer. This should resolve your issue. If not, please let me know.

New Dell Inspiron connected to HP 820Cse printer. Won't print.


I've not worked with one of these cables before, but here's what I would do: Right-click on the printer icon and go to properties. You'll be looking for the tab that says "ports." Open that tab and see what port the computer thinks it's using for the printer. Chances it says it's using a parallel port, but it is in fact, using a USB port. I can't tell you which to choose without looking at what you see, but I think you might find one that makes reference to a USB port with a parallel connection of some type. Try clicking on that and see if your situation improves.

Dell Laser Printer 1720dn Will only print test pages. When attempting to print a document, I click on 'Print', and the command is sent to the printer que, but the printer doesn't print. I've tried deleting...


Check that the correct printer is set as default. Also use File Print so that the selected printer is shown rather than using the Print button. If the test pages are being printed from the computer then the communication is working.
