Re: No power

Try it in another powerpoint. Try uninstalling it and reinstalling it on pc if not a stand alone unit. Could be the power support has died and may need repalacing.

Dell 1600n to be used on an imac

Hello! Unfortunately, Dell printers mainly supply Windows drivers on their website. To print to this printer, your new iMac will probably pull a generic driver to use with the printer. It should still work no problem, as you're saying, however you won't be able to use the software that's available on the PC. The downloads available for your Dell printer are here:
Dell 1600n Printer Downloads

You can tell by clicking that link and looking under Operating System that only Windows operating systems are available, as well as the software shown below, which is only made for Windows based systems. As for the PaperPort software, that program is made by a company called Nuance. When you purchased your printer, you most likely received a trial or full OEM version from Dell along with your new printer as a software bundle deal. From what I can see, the software is only Windows based. Sorry!

Below is the link to a free viewer that can still read your PaperPort files:

Dell 1600n printer driver for Windows 2003 Server

I had a similar problem deploying these printers, however i found using the XP drivers in 2003 does work fine. Not sure why dell doesnt have an installer for this printer in 2003 server, but here you go.

extract that file, note its destination directory. do not attempt to run the setup.exe, it will fail saying your operating system is not supported.

instead navigate to (if you didnt change the path) C:DelldriversR165289p0nPrinterPCLWINXP

this folder contains the driver you need to install manually.

one stange thing about these lexmark based network printers is the need to select 'local printer' during install, uncheck automatically search for my device, and then create a new TCP/IP port. Use the IP address provided by the network configuration print out you can access on the front panel of the printer. now just make sure to select 'lexmark network card' as the type of network interface. it should now ask you for your printer type, click have disk, and point to the driver folder mentioned earlier.

hope this helps. thanks alot dell.

Dell 1600N warming up message

Hi Unplug the printer power cable from the wall and disconnect it from the printer as well. Turn the printer power switch on for 15 seconds. This will reset the printer. Turn the printer power switch off and plug the cable back in on both ends. Then turn power on. The Document Jam error should be eliminated.

Please keep in mind you must check for any small pieces of paper or look for a real paper jam prior to completing the steps above.

I hope that helps.

ADF works only in vertical.

Sounds like a paper jam sensor. Most sensors are spring-loaded and will move in one direction, then back when the paper is feeding. If the process works when the printer is on its back, you are likely using gravity to bypass the sensor's intended operation. Sensor is not swinging in either direction as paper passes through, therefore it is not reporting any blockage/jams.
