Question about Dell 948 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer/scanner/fax machine needs to be reinstalled

I haven't used my Dell 948 for more than printing items off the internet. As well, I have scanned and printed things too. But as of now, I can't print anything off the internet. Example an e-mail from a friend, or perhaps a picture that they sent to me in an e-mail. Can you suggest any ideas on how to get my printer working, so that the scanner and the printer work together ?

Black line on copy and fax functions


Clean the paper path for the scan/fax portion. The original goes in and as the document is "read" a spot of dirt is causing the black line down the page because it is picked up in the copy area.

My Dell 948 printer produces a thick black line on documents


Leave the cover up and run a 'copy.' Look closely at the fluorescent scanner light and note if it seems equally bright from end to end.
If it does, the photo-assembly that acts as an image receiver is probably sick.
If it is, with the labor cost and potential non-availability of parts, you might be better off replacing it unless still under warranty.

Unable to print from the internet using dell printer 948


We had a similar problem that the printer could not print online content (see here).
Turned out to be a Windows firewall problem and reinstalling the software solved the problem.

Just to make sure: open your firewall settings (Start->Control Panel->Windows Firewall) and disable it.
If you can print now form the internet, you found the culprit.
The easiest way to solve this problem is to either re-install the printer software and open the ports or look into your printer manual and find the information about necessary ports that have to be opened.

If you need more help with that come back here and leave more details (esp. which printer you are using) and I'm happy to help.

Dell 948 printer- won't print in black and white


I had this problem. It's actually very easy to fix:

- Click Print -> Properties
- Go to "Advanced" tab
- "More options"
- Deselect "Use color cartridge for all black printing"
- Select "Use black cartridge to print black and white"
- Click "Ok"

You should be able to select the "Print in black and white" option now and stop all the frustration!
