Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

When I hit 'file' then 'print' nothing happens

When nothing happens after hitting print, a message "Communication Not Available - Priinter can't communicate with computer". Then it gives me instructions to try, which I have done and nothing happens. I have disconnected USB, connection to printer and unplugged it from wall power source, waited for 15 seconds and reconnected. What am I doing wrong. I have been without a printer for days now. I recently had a virus removed by one of your people and since then I have had no working printer. I also called several days after having the virus removed, was disconnected and your worker never call me back. How much longer must I be without a working printer??? My journal number is 09041L1XS3. Thx.

    My computer knows that I have the printer connected as when I unplug the USB or wall plug the computer takes note. The printer is able to run its own test prints but when I try to print from my computer the message pops up "Communication not Available" everytime. I've tried the trouble shoot solutions from the computer and the printer programing with no change. I've also noticed on the printer itself I cant set it to "print" mode only "copy" or "scan" and I dont know if this important

Go to your device manager and make sure that you have a driver for the printer. Or uninstall the printer then reinstall it. sounds like the printer driver has been deleted

Won't print, no error messages. no indication anything is wrong, ready light is on, but nothing happens. If I go to printer menu, it says jobs stopped. When I hit start jobs, it says waiting for printer......


Go into the printer menu and try to print the configuration page. If it doesn't, remove the network or USB cable and try again. If the configuration pages print, see if you can print the event log. That has a reasonable explanation of what is happening.
If you can print the config and event logs, there is nothing wrong with the printer. Delete the printer from your PC and reinstall the drivers.

I cant print. every time i hit the print buton, it should ask for ID and password, instead it ask to save that file..and then nothing happens..i try reinstalling the device but same things happen..


Hi,
these is strange, how do you mean that it ask you to save the file? Is these copier stated above Canon ir 1600/2000?

Does your computer want to save file?

These is first time that I "see" something like these.

If you want you can contact me on emma.servis@gmail.com for service manual.

Contacted HP Chat support. After investigating a bit they had me add a new printer using the virtual USB port and designating that printer as the HP OfficeJet 6500 E709A series. I did so and made that the default printer. Immediately Word, Excel and Adobe documents were once again printing.

Avery design pro will not print with my HP C5500


I found an odd workaround. Probably a better one available, but this worked for me. When you select Print from Design Pro, in the printer drop down box select Microsoft XPS Document Writer instead of your printer. Click OK, enter a file name, and save. That will save a .xps file. Next, open the .xps file and print it.

Hp officejet 6110 not printing. Can't get out of "align cartridge"mode.


printer problem call up hp at 1-800-474-6836 and ask them for an upgraded printer which you will get at 50-60% cheaper than the original and its a factory new printer.But it is definitly not free.
What you have right now is a hardware problem and the printer is dying so change it fast while this offer is available

Hp deskjet 3325 not printing


I don't think it is a printer problem as such more a communication problem. Un install the printer software. Close down the Computer. Unplug the printer. Start the computer. Come off line. Disable the A/V software. Run the installation disk only plug in printer when prompted Tell us what happens
