Try un-installing and installing the printer drivers again.
Was there change in the operating system?[Say you were using windows xp and now you're using windows vista]You may need to install the driver that corresponds with your operating system.You can download the drivers from this link:www.siliconguide.com/drivers/device/583/

I have a dell photo printer 720, that I used with my windows xp, but now, I bought a windows 7, , so when I try to connect my printer is not compatible, my question is: can I use this printer with a...


Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:)) julyallan01_52.jpg

I have a Dell A940 connected to my old Dell desktop, which I want to keep. How can I get it to print from my new laptop? I cannot find any USB ports on the printer to connect.


Specs state that it is USB - probably a "USB-B" connector. Anyway, how is it connected to your desktop? Surely you can take the USB lead from the printer out of the back of your desktop and plug it in your laptop? Am I missing something here? Specs don't say it is a "parallel" connector (unless it has both). If it has both (and you are using the parallel connection (big plug with many pins) on your desktop then there should be a USB-B socket on printer next to the big parallel socket.

Your almost there.
You need to run the .exe install file in the unzipped English folder. This should install your driver.

I have Dell A940 printer-I was printing some documnets and suddenly the printer stock and it was written on the screen: Hardware Error: 0502.What do I need to do?


Unplug your printer and re-start windows. Do a normal shut down and then start windows again with your printer plugged back in

Make sure that you have the newest driver installed from Dell you can go to support.dell.ca to obtain the latest release of your driver.
