Question about Dell 1815dn All-In-One Laser Printer

Cant scan via network?

Hello, i have a Dell mfp 1815dn.
I have it connected in a small network, the network consists of one Vista and Xp computer.
Now its (the Printer) only used by the Vista computer.
My problem is to scan via network. And what i have been trying to do, is to scan from the Dell scancenter program that follows with the printer.

The printer is functioning for prints and i can find it when i use the network scan function. But when i start Dell scancenter paperport it tells me the printer is not connected.

Another thing that might have something to do with the problem is that i cand see the printer among my network overview. The upnp function is turned on, so i can see it from my xp, even if i havent installed it there yet. I can also access the web page on the printer from my vista computer.

I have installed the new firmware and am also using the latest driver for the printer.

Can someone please help me?

Sincerly yours
Fredrik

    Connection between the computer and the scanner gets often borken in the middle of scan. Sometimes restarting computer, restarting Dell 1815dn and reconnecting USB cable helps for a while. Printer works, scanning to USB works (only in B/W in PDF). USB cable not too long not running in network mode.

DJSting... paperport can be used for network scanning, as it works with the dell 2335.  Now are you saying that this printer (the 1815) is limited?

You cannot use the paperport software to network scan. The paperport software is looking for a driver that is not installed. Network scanning for this printer is basically just file sharing. You initiate the scan at the printer itself. It scans the image and puts it on your computer. After it is there, you can use paperport to convert it to text if need be.

Dell laser mfp 1815 dn "scanner locked" message


When you lift the scanner lid look to the left bottom. you should see a green slider button. If you stick your hand in the output tray and get it rigth under the green slider you will find a lever. Move that thing backwards or forwards, that is your unlocker.
