Question about Dell 922 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Scaning . . . Scanning. . .. not scanned

My Dell AIO 922 powers on fine, and can print documents and pictures. The scanner portion of the AIO is not working properly. Nothing happens when I press the 'scan' button on the printer. When I try to import photos into Adobe Photoshop via the printer the scanner does not work. The scanner never even warms up or begins to scan, it does nothing at all. I have reconnected power chords and restarted my computer, this has no effect. Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Not sure if this is the correct way around, but it worked.  Go to Start --> All programs --> Dell Printers --> Dell Photo AIO Printer 922 --> Dell All-in-one center

From here, you can determine and change your scan settings as needed;  then click "scan now" (thus by-passing the button on the actual AIO machine).  This scanned photos into my picture program so I could email to all the grandparents!

I recently got a new Dell computer and kept my Dell AIO 922 printer, but now the icon is lost, I cannot scan. However, I can print, but that is about it.

Do you still have the Dell AIO 922 Drivers and Utilities CD? If so, you can reinstall it on your new Dell PC with the Drivers and Utilities CD. Although you are able to see this printer in your list, the other components are missing such as the scan and fax options. If you have already reinstalled it using the CD, you should see the All In One Center under the Start Menu/ All Programs/Dell Printers/Dell AIO Printer 922 and the All In One Center should be showing there. You can right click on the All in One Center and select "send to" and choose desktop to create a shortcut or icon on your desktop. Your options for scanning and faxing should be showing here. Hope that helps!

Scanning files to large

It's the resolution you are using to scan. Try a lower setting. for documents, 150-200 dpi is fine. That will produce smaller files.

Dell 922 AIO does everything except print from PC

Two things to try:

1. If it prints the alignment page, sometimes you have to put the page back on the scanner glass and hit continue or start on the printer for it to scan back in the alignment page to complete the alignment process

2. If thtat's not it, try going to add/remove programs in control panel and uninstall all dell pritner software, then reinstall using the link below:

disconnect the printer from the computer and also unplug the power adapter of the printer , wait for 30 seconds and reconnect the power adapter and try to copy a document , if it works then there are no issues with the scanner.

if it still gives you the msg scanner busy. then click on start ----->click on RUN-----> type "control printers" click OK , right click on dell AIO 924 and then click "cancel all documents".
restart the printer and then try scanning.

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work

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).
