Mac user can't scan on Dell MFP 1600n


That's because you can't scan over wireless. In order to scan, you need to be connected via USB, so I hope you've got a MacBook...

Prints faint copies


If the print rubs off the page, this means the toner is not being fused to the page. Fused......this is done by the fuser. This would have nothing to do with light print.

The dell (1600n and 1815n /1815dn) printer drivers has a toner saver mode, which can contribute to light print.

To turn Toner Save Mode off, (Windows XP) perform the following steps:
  1. Click the Start button, click Settings, and then click Printer and Faxes.
    The Printers and Faxes window appears.
  2. Right-click Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn, and left-click Printing Preferences.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Printing Preferences window appears.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Advanced Options window appears.
  4. Click to highlight Toner Save.
  5. Click the drop-down list and change it to Off and click OK.
  6. Click OK.
One thing that you mentioned in your post "it takes the printer forever to warm up". The fuser does have to reach operational temperature in order for it to fuse the toner to the page. So it is possible that you are having fuser problems, because of the time it is taking for it to warm up. Another thing that can contribute to the warm up time is not plugging the laser printer directly into a wall outlet. This would be true for any laser printer, not just a Dell laser printer. The low voltage power supply is what works the fuser, along with sensors and other motors in the printer.

Replacing the fuser and or the low voltage power supply in this model of printer is not an easy task. If using a Dell branded toner cartridge and checking the toner saver mode does not fix the issue. Then you would be looking at more expense then the machine would possibly be worth.

Dell 1600n All-In-One Slow Printing


Most times the PCL driver will work just fine for printing .pdf documents. Occasionally you will need to us a PS driver to print .dpf docutments. PCL was designed to work best with MS Word, Excel, etc programs and PS drivers were designed to work best with Adobe .pdf.

One way to see if you have the PS driver already installed, is to (in Windows XP) start>control panel>printers and faxes>in here look for an Icon that represents your printer that has PS in place of the PCL. If this is installed then when you go to print your docuement, choose this icon to print with.

If you do not have the PS driver already installed, try adding the printer to your system. You would do this by (Windows XP) start>control panel>printers and faxes>add a printer wizard>Next>Choose your connection(local or network)>Next>Select a printer port>Next>Install Printer Software(If you have downloaded the most recent drivers, choose have disk and navigate to where you saved it. If you have the CD, use have disk and navigate on the CD to where the PS driver is>Next>You may or may not get the next window asking you to choose whick model of printer you are installing, it varies from printer to printer. From here it is pretty straight foward, just read the wizard and click next. The last step you will need to click finish for the drivers to actually install.

As a side note, not all printers have a PS driver available.

1600n Printing an Extra Page everytime...


I had a computer experiencing the same problem.
I found under the printer properties that there was 2 drivers listed; both say "Dell Laser MFP 1600n PCL 6"
I swtiched the settings from one to the other.
The Printing Preferences also show more options.

  • Open the Printer(Control Panel->Printers>Dell MFP 1600n)
  • On the menu at the top click Printer->Properties
  • Click the tab at the top Labeled Advanced
  • Change the driver and Click Apply
This should fix your problem.

Dell 1600n printer driver for Windows 2003 Server


I had a similar problem deploying these printers, however i found using the XP drivers in 2003 does work fine. Not sure why dell doesnt have an installer for this printer in 2003 server, but here you go.

ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/printer/R165289.EXE

extract that file, note its destination directory. do not attempt to run the setup.exe, it will fail saying your operating system is not supported.

instead navigate to (if you didnt change the path) C:DelldriversR165289p0nPrinterPCLWINXP

this folder contains the driver you need to install manually.

one stange thing about these lexmark based network printers is the need to select 'local printer' during install, uncheck automatically search for my device, and then create a new TCP/IP port. Use the IP address provided by the network configuration print out you can access on the front panel of the printer. now just make sure to select 'lexmark network card' as the type of network interface. it should now ask you for your printer type, click have disk, and point to the driver folder mentioned earlier.

hope this helps. thanks alot dell.

Windows Vista can't find networkd Dell 1600n


Make sure you're using the drivers for Vista, which can be found on support.dell.com. You'll want to use the choice for Vista 32-bit.

Also, try turning off your firewall, as it may be blocking the network data.
