Goto the Lexmark site and get the right driver. make sure you have the right model fax and operating system. This appears to be the wrong printer driver.

I got this fixed. i was told to get a USB hub and run the printer through it, and it took care of the problem. Pretty easy fix and only cost about $14.

Canon ImageClass MF6540- works fine for printing, but scanning complains connection problem on Dell Dimension E521. However my other Dell Dim 9200 computer runs fine for both printing and scanning. What...


Need some clarification about the error.
We need to know the exact error.
Generally all the scannars use TWAIN technology which bridges the scanner with WIA(windows imaging aquisition).
We need to know if WIA which is a part of the operating system is working. For diagonasting we can try using teh scanners and camera wizard from control panel or we can use mspaint even.
If WIA is working in that case the problem may be with the registry values of the scanner.
WE can try making a new user account with admin rights and then we can try installing the scanner. We can even try using Revo uninstaller for uninstallation of the scanner because it will remove all the entries from registry, then we can try scanning.
BEST OF LUCK.

Hi,
Please go to the Dell website again. You should be looking for a LAN driver. Make sure that you are downloading drivers for Windows XP.
If that doesn't help visit broadcom website.

Dell 942 all in one printet wont communicate to dell dimension pc


You've tried to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver of your printer. But still no luck. The printer still won't print. Or it would say printing but it won't finish printing.

You can try these steps:

1.Check if the firewall is blocking any printer services

2.Check what port the printer is using (reenable the bi-directional support) and if it's on online mode

3.Disable all the firewalls

4.Uninstall the printer driver and software

5.Delete any items under the ff keys:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-3

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-3

Optional***
6.Delete any non default items under the ff keys:
Note: ONLY THE NON DEFAULT ITEMS SHOULD BE DELETED
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Monitors
Default items are as follows:
AppleTalk Printing Devices
BJ Language Monitor
Local Port
PJL Language Monitor
Standard TCP/IP Port
USB Monitor
Windows NT FAx Monitor
*****
7.Delete any items under the ff keys:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Control\Print\Printers

8.Completely remove drivers by doing the ff: (Option for comm failure because of the upgrade from xp to vista)
Ensure there are no documents in queue.

Disconnect printer’s USB cable.

Click the Start pearl, then click All programs, Printers, Dell xxx (where “xxx” is the printer model number) and then Uninstall. Complete the uninstall utility.

From the start search box type spool and press .

The spool folder located at c:\windows\system32\spool opens.

Rename c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32X86 to c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\backup.

Rename c:\windows\system32\spool\prtprocs\W32X86 to c:\windows\system32\spool\prtprocs\backup.

9.Restart the computer.

10.Check th services status

Start-Run- Type Services.msc and Click on Open

You will see long list of services

You need to make sure following 4 Services are set to Automatically start

Remote Procedure Call RPC
Remote Procedure Call RPC Locater
LexBce Server
Print Spooler

11.Reinstall the latest printer driver


good luck. :)

My HP LaserJet 1012 isn't printing. I can't print anything on my hp laser jet 1012. I have installed the CD disc and it says that it can't install it. It does go through the whole program. When I click on...


so the printer used to work fine before the computer was reset, right? the operating system you had is the same you have now? (like you had XP and now have Vista, or kept the same?) cause if you changed operating system you might have a driver version conflict.

this printers have a green button right? if so, what happen if you press it? does it print a demo page? correctly??

i recommend you to go hp.com and download the newest drivers for your model and operating system.

if this doesnt solve the issue (but the demo page came out OK) then you may want to check your communication cable. and do the reinstalling procedure again.

if still not working you will have to take your printer to be reset, or look over the web on how to, that information is classified.

C++ Runtime Error for Dell Photo AIO 962 printer dlbxmon.exe


I had the same problem and was able to fix it by following the instructions in this link:

http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7590_102-0.html?forumID=67&threadID=300180

Apparently, the regular uninstall procedure does not completely uninstall the software drivers. Then, if new drivers or software are installed, a conflict is created between the old drivers and the new drivers. You have to first run the DellXPCleanUpUtility to completely clean out the old software drivers. Then, you can install the new drivers successfully.

Computer won't recognize USB ports


If you are plugging a USB device into a different port it takes some time to recognize and install it - it re-installs for every port. There could be cable and/or port issues as well. Plug the printer into a USB port that the mouse does work on and allow several minutes for it to detect install it.
