Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer
I have set up the printer with the software downloaded from Dells website. The Printer Test Page works perfectly, but unfortunately when i send other items to print, characters are printed and not words, its not recognising the items im trying to print, but i dont know how to fix this problem, can you help please?
Print test page from the printer. This prints fine? Then anytime a printer prints gibberish versus what you were trying to print from the computer means you should try one of two things. Download the most recent drivers from the products support site, install these. Be sure to uninstall the old drivers first. Another item that can cause gibberish print is a bad cable. Swapping out with a known good could solve the whole problem.
Print test page from the printer. This does not print fine? Then you are looking at something wrong with the printer. The cable and drivers would not be the cause because the only piece of equipment involved at this point is the printer. First step I would try in solving this. Download and update the firmware from the support site. If this does not work, then you may have a defunct printer. If you are under warranty, contact Dell tech support.
