Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Need Dell All-in-One printer 924 to work with Inspiron 530S.

I installed my printer software in my new computer, but nothing happens whenever I press print. As far as I know, I've connected everything properly. Please tell me what to do to get my printer working with this new computer!

    Yes. It's the windows version. It does not say that it's specifically for that version of windows.

    My computer is the Windows Vista version of windows. When I checked the control panel under Printers it has my Dell 924 printer there.

    What Operating system are you useing and how are you hooking the printer to your computer. When you look at installed printers, does it show you dell 924?

    No. It had to specifically say Win Xp or Win VISTA or Win 98.

    From the Del link below/ Look up your VERSION of windows,download the driver for that version and install the driver.
    Seei f that wil make a difference. It almost always does.

Are you trying to use the print key on your keyboard? If you are you will have to down load some software to get that key to work. The print key does not function in the windows software without an add on.
If you aren't getting it to print by useing the print function of the program you are using that is a different story. First go to your printer on the control panel and right click your printer. You should then see the print que for your printer. Open a program that you want to print form (Word, etc.) and brining up a document. Go to the print function for that program and hit print and make sure your printer is selected, them follow the instructions to print this document. When you opened this program, your print que went to the command line at the bottom of your screen. As soon as you print your document, click on the print que and see if the document went into the que, and then see if it goes away. If it does, the the software is working correctly. If it goes away and does not print, you should get and error the the document did not print. Are you getting such and error?
It is very important to verify your printer is the one selected when the print screen comes up.
If this does not work, again bring up the print que, under printer on the print que click on properties and try to do a test page. If that does not print, again did you get a popup the says the job did not print?
Another thought, on the print que, check under Document and make sure pause is not checked. This will keep your printer for printing.
Can you do a test print on your printer?

If it doesn't say it is specifically for VISTA then it is not for VISTA.. Even if it does show up on the computer ,that just shows that some driver for that model printer is installed. Not necessary one that will work. Go to the weblink that I gave you. Download the VISTA drive and update the driver, using the one you downloaded ,and that will most lkely fix the problem.

Wrong ink color Dell 924 printer

run a nozzle clean, perform the following steps:
  1. Verify the All-In-One Printer 924 is powered on and connected to a computer.
  2. Verify that the paper support (input tray) has clean, plain white paper loaded.
  3. Press the Menu button.
  4. Press the Down button until Mode: Maintenance appears on the LCD screen.
  5. Press the Menu button.
    The Dell 924 Maintenance Menu appears on the LCD screen.
  6. Press the Down button until Clean Cartridges appears on the LCD screen.
  7. Press the Start button.
    The AIO 924 prints the cleaning page. This process cleans the ink cartridges and resolves many print quality issues.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Dell AIO924 printer

you may need to install the whole cd package w/c includes the scanning application program, or you can try using a sifferent software like the one in windows, under accessories look for scanner, if your system cannot find the scanner, then the driver for the scanner wasnt fully or not yet installed,

pls look for the scanner software, what you have installed is only for the printer alone.

HP PSC 1510 Vista issues

what happens whenever you are trying to scan.... any error message or any error number?

try scanning from the printer to the computer using the scan to option on the front panel of the printer.

try scanning from hp solution center installed in your computer.

try scanning from mspaint. to do so, open paint and click on "file-->from scanners and camera".

how did you installed the driver. have you got the correct cd to install the printer in windows vista???

if not that may be the problem. the printer can print and copy well as you are having the drivers which will work in win vista. but for the scanning functionality you need to get the cd to install the printer in windows vista. you can download it online.

the above link will help yu to download the win vista software and drivers for this particular printer.

Thanks and regards
