Question about Dell Inkjet 720 Printer

2 Answers

720 and 540 Dell printer communication problems

I had this solved a few years ago, but my computer crashed, and I can't remember how to fix it. For some reason, the pc will not recognize both drivers and I need to check the box (or uncheck the box) next to
statmon.exe
but I can't seem to find the place where this is.
Help!

    When I first got the computer and printers, I had the same problem. I reinstalled/installed a million times. Seemed like the last driver installed would be the one that would work. They sent me a new printer--the 720, sent in a repairman who tried uninstalling/reinstalling both printers, and even replaced the hard drive in my computer, ugh! Finally, the serviceman contracted by Dell called someone in Texas, and she said it was the statmon.exe, had him pull it up somewhere in configurations, click off (I believe) the box, and the problem was fixed, all in about 2 minutes. That's what I am trying to find. Thanks for your reply.

Sounds like you are looking for System configuration utility.

Click Start and then click Run and type MSCONFIG (in Vista, I believe you just type it in the box next to the bottom of the start menu).

Select the Startup tab and untick the StatMon box. Restart the computer. A "warning" will open on reboot saying a bunch of verbage about the fact that you just changed the "startup settings" (or something like that). Just tick the "don't show me this again" box and click OK.

HTH,

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

That happened to me, too. One of my employees fixed it. She found that someone (prboably me - but I don't remember) set the paper size to A4. She set it back to letter size and it solved the problem. I hope this helps!

I have an HP Laserjet CM1015 Priner/scanner and an HP pavillion running Windows Vista. When I try to scan anything it says an error occured communicating with scanning device and check it is connected...


I had this too on my Vista. I re-installed the original software that came with the printer and the scanner then worked OK. My problem was always triggered when HP automatically downloaded 'updated' software, so I would disable the update feature as it only causes problems!!

Hope this works for you.

wolfhaus: Did you try creating another user account 'Administrator' or 'Standard' and see if it will print from that ?. Let me know if this helps or not.

Richo 1515 MF Error message: 12320 couldn't find the scanner.


This is a message on your PC...not the machine itself obviously? Was this scanner ever configured to work on your PC? If not, then follow this link to my comments to someone else about this machine:

Dell AIO Photo 926 will not operated at all


Try changing your firewall, it worked for me. I got my 926 a year ago with my Dell and had no problems until I replaced my expired Norton w/a freebe I downloaded then the problems started. Would not comunicate sometiimes and when it did it printed once than froze. Would not delete printed doc or print the next. I remembered that McAfee made my old Emachine freeze or crash. Put Norton back on and no more problems. Hope this helps you.

Says it's printing but it's not


Go to your "start menu" and look for "printers and faxes" then after that it should bring up a screen with your current printers and faxing machines. Make sure your Dell 926 InkJet has a little black check by it. If not then right-click the Dell InkJet and select "set as default printer". If it already is, then right-click it again and make sure it isn't paused. It will give you an option to "resume printing". After that then it should work. Make sure to also delete the old printers that may be on the computer too, the reason is because it may block out your other computer.

Computer will not communicate with printer


Go out to Lexmark web site and look for a vista update in their software download section. So this should solve your problem.Most of the cds which come with equipment do not contain vista software and drivers.
