My dell 924 wont print what i want when on the internet, keeps trying to print 12 pages of <script?


Hi

You don't say which operating system you use.

Try clearing the printer's memory cache.

Start > (ControlPanel) Printer(s) > double click on the Dell 924 icon > cancel all pending documents > close > power printer off > disconnect printer cable > restart computer > power printer on > reconnect printer cable > test print again.

If you still have a problem consider downloading any firmware, updates or security patches from here:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PRN_ALL_A924&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

If this does not fix the problem you might have a corruption in your driver software. If so, uninstall all components of the driver software from Add or Remove Programs > restart the computer > reinstall printer drivers and applications > test print.

Another consideration may be some form of spyware infection controlling your browser settings. If so, consider enhancing your spyware and browser protecting by downloading, installing and scanning with:

Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org)

SuperAntispyware (www.superantispyware.com)

Unlike antivirus software, multiple antispyware/antimalware programs can run simltaneously on a computer

I hope this helps.

How to install a printer without the install cd.


You lost, broke or damaged your installation cd for your printer and the software is corrupt and needs reinstalled or you want to hook it to a different computer. What should you do?

You can install a printer without the cd.

First connect the printer to the USB port if that is how it hooks up, this is the most common hookup. Power the printer on. Give the computer, which should already be running, some time to recognize the printer. It will ask for the disk (cd) or if you want to browse for it. Cancel the setup at this time.

Google your printers brand. Go to the company web site. You should see a link to 'drivers and downloads' click on this. A page will open usually with a search engine. Input your model. You should be presented with software for your model printer to download. Follow the instructions and download the software to your desktop.

When done close the internet and click on the software you just downloaded. It should start an install. Follow the instructions and install the software. Reboot your computer and go to the printer setup. Find your printer and open the maintenance menu. You should be able to do a test print at this point. If your printer prints a test page you are done.

I would save the downloaded software to a file which you can easily recognize and burn it on a cd.

My printer always prints the test page every time I switch it on.I lost a lot of paper and ink. How can I stop this?


Try uninstall the driver from your computer, restart the computer, then install it again, in installation, make sure you didn't choose/ check the print test page.

Pages not showing any print


In this case, the first thing that I would do is re-install the printer.

Delete the printer from your computer then, if you have the installation disk, run the setup program to reinstall the printer and all of its drivers.
If you don't have or don't want to use the installation disk, you can download drivers directly from the manufacturer's Web site here
http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi

I could have provided a link directly to the download page if you would have provided the name of your operating system (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, etc). However, it's fairly simple finding your drivers. After you get to the Lexmark Web site you will need to type your printer model (1100 Colorjet) in the text box.
On the next page, you will need to select your operating system.
The following page will provide a link to download the driver files used to install the printer.
Make sure you download the correct drivers for your printer model. Using the incorrect drivers can cause print issues such as this one or cause wierd characters to print instead of letters. This kind of thing can also happen if one of the entries placed in the Windows registry by the printer software has become corrupt.

Download the file and run it to re-install the printer.
Print a test page from the printer itself to rule out any issues with the hardware. (You might also want to download the users guide if you don't know how to print a test page from the printer). If the page comes out blank, you will have to stop here and find out why you can't print directly from the printer (this would be an issue caused by the printer). If not, you can move on to the next step.

Next, print a test page from the operating system to rule out any problems related to hardware.
Start > Printers and Faxes > Right-click printer > Click Properties on the General Tab > Click Print Test Page.
If both test pages print successfully then you should be able to print anything without a problem and can try to print and email or word document to see how it comes out.
If the test page printed from the printer came out okay but this one came out blank, this indicates a software related issue and you would have to troubleshoot further.

I know this sounds like a lot to do, however, all you need to do is download the correct drivers (unless you choose to use the CD that came with it), uninstall then re-install the printer, and print a test page from the printer, one from the computer, then print any random document.

Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya.

Cant instal the printer to mi computer


Setting up or installing a printer in Microsoft Windows. Issue:Setting up or installing a printer in Microsoft Windows.
Solution:There are two different methods a user can install a printer in Microsoft Windows. Below is additional information about each of these methods listed in the order we believe a user should try installing their printer in Microsoft Windows.
Before being able to install your printer you must have the software that was included with the printer. If you've lost the software for your printer you can download the drivers for your printer and use the drivers to install your printer. A listing of printer manufacturers and links to their associated drivers pages can be found on our printer drivers page.
Setup a printer using printer software
Every printer should come with the software used to install a printer in Windows. Although not all installations are the same the steps for installing this software should be similar to the below steps.
  1. Connect the printer to the computer and a power outlet and make sure it's on.
  2. Insert the CD that was included with the printer. If the CD does not automatically start the install program open My Computer, double-click on the CD drive, and then the Setup or Install file.
  3. Follow the installation wizard and your printer and its associated software should be installed successfully.
Installing a printer only using the drivers
In addition to the above steps a users can install a printer in Windows only using the printer drivers. This is recommended if you only want the printer to be installed but not the additional printer software programs that are often included with the installation and/or you've download drivers.
A listing of printer drivers and software downloads can be found through our printer drivers page.
Note: if you've installed the printer doing the above steps these steps should not be necessary unless you encountered errors.
  1. Connect the printer to the computer and a power outlet and make sure it's on.
  2. Click Start, Settings, and Control Panel.
  3. In the control panel double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.
  4. In the Printers window click the Add a printer icon.
  5. After completing the above steps the Windows Printer Wizard will appear. Click Next, to start the wizard.
  6. Windows will prompt you if you're installing a Local or Network printer. If the printer is connected to your computer choose Local printer attached to this computer and click Next.
  7. When prompted for the location of the drivers for the printer. Browse the computer to the directory of your drivers or point it to the CD that was included with your printer.
Testing the printer
After the printer has been installed in Windows you can use Windows to print a self-test page to make sure the printer is working by following the below steps.
Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, 2003, and Vista users
  1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.
  3. Right-click on the Printer you wish to test and click Properties. If you do not see your printer listed your printer is not installed. Seedocument CH000939 for additional information about installing a printer in Windows.
  4. In the Printers Properties window click the Print Test Page button.
  5. If the printer is able to print a test page, you're printer is installed and setup properly. However, if you're unable to print in other programs it's possible that the program you're attempting to print from has issues.

I have a HP Deskjet 1300n printer. I can print my email, pictures and items off the internet, but cannot print any word documents or notepad documents. When I print an excel document, I get an incomplete page-the grid lines will print,and text garbage from a adobe program but not all the text. When I do a test print page, I get an incomplete text page, but do not know how to solve this. I have removed and reloaded the printer software-no improvement. There are no new drivers to be installed.

SInce the test pages are printing the problem is a software communication issue. Make sure you have the right printer selected in the program you are trying to print from.
