Chances are that if it started when you attempted to reinstall your OS, it is most likely not a hardware issue. Try deleting/uninstalling the printer and reinstalling from the original disks or from the Dell website. Make sure to use the correct version of the print driver software for your OS.

Check out this link if you need to download the software/drivers for your printer:

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. :)

No longer feeds the paper correctly when trying to print. It seems to feed the paper at an angle. I can hand feed one page at a time but still isn't straight. What can I do?


Hello,

Please try to reinstall the your printer driver. Usually the driver is the one which malfunctions.
Good luck.

Dell AIO 942 printing problem


Hi Lei,

You may try to check on the printing settings. You may need to check also if it is defaulting to all. You may try printing it by pages. If the issue persist then there is something wrong with the settings. You may also try to uninstall and reinstall the printer software if the issue persist.

Keep me posted.

Thanks,

Jeff

You can try cleaning the feed rollers and manually clean the ink cartridge carrier contacts. The issue may also be the encoder which is a narrow band of transparent plastic behind the ink cartridge carriers. Try to clean this. Be careful as this can break easily.

My dell 942 aio is waco


Suggest you completely remove the printer from your system. The shut down the system, restart and reinstal the software that came with the printer. If it install completely with no problems you should be Ok to go. If not write back and with the info you can give on the removal the first time if it went ok and the reinstalation it it went OK. Also with the printer completly disconnected from your PC just plug the power cord into the wall and then put something on the scanner screen and see if you can make a copy of it by using the copy button. You should be able to make a black or color copy without your Pc hooked up.
