Dell 966 all in one printer is printing blank pages

I have a wireless laptop which I connect via usb cable to a Dell 966 all in one printer. All was fine the last time the equipment was used (several weeks ago) but now the printer prints only blank pages and, if I try to copy a page, the copy is very faint. The print cartridges indicate at least 50 % full. Thanks for any assistance.

Our black ink quit printing, cleaning did not help. I finally got it to print by selecting:

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY

Good luck!

It could possibly be your main charge assembly. If there is no charge on your drum, it can lead to blank copies.

Try going to the printer properties and change the quality of the output.

SOURCE: Refilled Ink Cartridge on Dell 966 all-in-one,how do i reset it?

I had this same printer but never was able to reset it. It has some type of sensor on it. That will not let it reset. I was told to unplug it from the computer. Turn the printer off. Reboot the system and plug the USB connector back into it once the system is booted. You may also try to reinstall the printer driver. I also find out that when the printer software says that the ink is low, it really is not. So keep on printing. What I eventually had to do is get a HP. No problem with HP, I can get a refill and it works. Now that I am think about this. See if you can disable the ink monitoring option in the software.
I hope this helps.

Hi Richard,

Is the printer connected via a USB cable directly to your computer, or are you using a network cable?

I have dell 926 all in 1 printer,a dell inspiron1525 laptop i have uninstall/install the drivers from dell 3 times,print jobs Que but not print via laptop,not even a test page


Hi

Did you use the printer before that is connected to your laptop and prints fine or you are setting up the printer but unable to set up?

Before that check that all the cable connection are connected. Remove and connect it again, then when setting up the printer, check if it is reconized by your laptop by adding and setting up the printer once more.

Check also the printer's compatibility with the operating system? and install the correct driver?

Check also the USB cable and make sure you are using a USB cable port?

Please post comment for more help. Regards

My dell 966 won't print documents--put new cartridge in but contiues to say color ink is low but prints test page with no problem


This sounds like it may be as simple as correcting communication problems between the printer and the computer.

Remove the USB cable from your printer and your computer. Reconnect the USB cable to your printer and your computer.

Turn off the printer. Unplug the printer power cable from the electrical outlet and let rest for a few mnutes. Reconnect the printer power cable into the electrical outlet, and turn on the printer.

Restart your computer.

This may resolve the problem.

Wireless printer communication unavailable via USB


Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

It looks like it isn't an hp wireless printer. You can connect to the printer via a usb cord and download the software from HP if you want to. Another way is have the printer connected to a wired computer via usb and share the printer and then with the other computer on you could print pages from the wireless laptop to the printer.

Depending on what you want to use the printer for you can use the usb cable to connect it to your PC and be able to print if all the right things are done.But if you want to use it as a net work printer you still have to use usb cable and connect to your server.

Printer and computer no communication


Unless you have a wireless router to conduct traffic, you won't be able to print wirelessly to the AIO 966.

You will need a cable (and it's possible the printer didn't come with one). You'll need a USB A-B cable to do this. You can find one at any office supply store, Radio Shack, Target... it's a common part.

Then with with laptop and printer on, plug in the cable to each and Windows should recognize the device and you'll be able to print.
