Re: my dell a920 printer/scaner will not scan
To solve the printing problem..
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel. # Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right). # Continue doing this until it looks clean. # Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing. # Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier. 2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Have you tried going to Dell and downloading the drivers for it? I had an A920 until a couple of weeks ago so know that every once in awhile, for no reason, it quits working. Mine would print but not scan! I went to Dell, downloaded updated drivers and this seemed to fix the problem. I had to do the scanning through the program, not by pushing the buttons, tho.
2 Open the Dell Printer Solution Center on the computer. Click "Start," located in the bottom left corner of your computer. Select "Programs" from the menu displayed. Click "Dell printers." Click "Dell AIO Printer A920" and then click "Dell Printer Solution Center" to open the Dell Printer Solution Center.
3 Click on the "Maintenance" tab and select the option that says, "Clean to fix horizontal streaks."
4 Click "Print." This will print a nozzle print page, which forces ink through all of the nozzles to clean and unclog them.
5 Print a regular document again to see if the print quality has improved. Repeat the cycle up to two more times to improve printing quality.
Dell never provided Mac drivers for Dell Printers.....
Anyways,. I've searched on google and found this link for lexmark printer..
Please try this and let me know if that works???
