Uninstall and reinstall the software. Normally the software installed on the computer controls the scanner functions for the all in one dell stuff. Check dells site also for any updates that might correct this issue.

Dell 810 all in one printer/scanner not scanning

scanning is a bit of a trick. You have to have hardware to scan with, and SOFTWARE to receive images. Make sure the scanners imaging software suite has been installed, OR, you can use the scanner manager in windows to scan with. Just select the dell 810 as the "scanner source" and click "scan". that should do it.

Sounds like your cartridge may be unseated or it is really incompatible. You do not state clearly that you have printed successfully with this cartridge before.

My windows 7 won't send anything to my dell 810 printer to be printed. The scanner part of it works but that's it. Why won't it send anything to be printed???

Uninstall the Windows 7 drivers, disconnect the printer, download and install the drivers from Dell's support site and reconnect the printer.

Good luck!
