Dell 922 Printer

I have loaded the software and everything is connected and looks like it is ready to run but I cannot print from any programs. I get the following message. "There was a problem printing. Check the properties for your printer." I have two computers and the properties are the same. The only difference is the computer that the printer works on runs on microsoft XP, and my computer I am trying to run it on runs Windows Vista Home Basic

Re: Dell 922 Printer

You will have to use the New Dell 922 VISTA drivers and not the XP drivers in order for it to work with your Vista Loaded PC. The new drivers for the 922 under Vista are available for download at Dells website. Check out this link Hope this helps.

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:

Color printer won't print color

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My all in one printer 922

what operating system are you using? if you have windows vista then go to the dell site, download the patch under the windows vista drivers. run the patch, it will remove all traces of the software then download the latest vista driver form the dell site and install it. if that doesnt work then try this.

1. Download the latest Vista driver.
2. Disconnect the PC from the network/Internet
3. Delete the printer
4. Disconnect the printer from the PC
5. Uninstall the software from Device Manager (you have to choose
view, show hidden devices). Right click on the printer and choose
6. Uninstall the software from the program group or the control panel.
7. Reboot
8. Delete everything in C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\
9. Install the Vista Driver reconnecting the printer when the driver
install calls for it.

Good luck

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).

922 All-inOne ink Jet printer doesn't print

Lots of luck. I couldn't even get the printer to load the software or install the hardware. I was helped by Dell's tech support (Dell has one of the best tech support programs that exists, in my opinion) for at least 4 hours without any good results. They sent me a replacement for a replacement and I finally got the printer and the software to show by installing it differently. Now it will not print, and, like you, the light to the power button blinks all the time and the printer states that there is no color cartridge installed, even though I have re-installed the new trial cartridge sent by Dell several times. I am going to purchase a new Canon Printer.

Dell 922 aio printer

it's unusual to have same problem if completely uninstalled printer(removing printer, then uninstalling,after which use printer installation cd then re connect printer when prompted). If you have a spare usb port install software then connect printer to a different usb port. Lastly try; go to printers and faxes folder>right click on printer icon>properties>advanced, then click the radio button 'Print Directly to the Printer' and see if it prints. Also make sure this printer is set to default printer Try an updated driver, if any,from the Lexmark web site, as they are the same printer without the Dell logo. Your rating is appreciated.
