Question about Dell Photo 964 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Dell 946 will not print after one print

After one print with the Dell 946 it will not print and I get a bot that says Commuication not available. I disconect and reconnect all cables and it does the same thing. One print and then non. I have reinstalled the printer software and driver several times and it is always the same response. I had Dell support work on it twice and still one print and then no print because of Communication. I have a Dell XPS with Vista for Home.

Can anyone help?

Just got a new lenovo laptop and my dell 946 will not print anything from it. Not sure if it's a compatability problem?


Did you install the DELL printer-driver software onto the new laptop?

If you've lost that CD-ROM, access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://support.dell.com

and enter '946' and do a search for the device-driver software.

Can you print to a Dell 946 All-In-One InkJet


Dell does not have Mac drivers for this printer. Your Dell printer was made by Lexmark and if you can find a similar printer on Lexmark’s website, it might or might not work. You can also try Gutenprint for Mac OS X which may or may not work.
