Question about Dell 946 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer won't print any Adobe files

I have a Dell 946, and it 'refuses' to print out any file in Adobe format.
It looks like it is putting the file in some queue, but then nothing happens. The 'usual' window at the bottom of my screen, that shows that printer is working, never appears, and then, nada. ? Any suggestions. I have no problem with printing anything else. Thanks. Kim

    I'm not quite sure how to answer, I'll just try to describe my problem with a bit more detail. I have no problem printing anything from any other file, it 'sends' it to my printer and the printer responds. (Microsoft word, Printmaster, any emails, etc.) But if I try to print anything that is Adobe (like e mails, that come in Adobe format (and I do have the Adobe reader and Acrobat updated. Do I need to change some setting? I should just be able to click 'print' and it should print!? Hmmm. I'm not quite sure how else to explain with any more detail. thanks for any help. Kim

    What program do you use to print the Adobe format file. If you are using Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat you should have no problems. If you are using a wordprocessor and you are printing to the Adobe printer, you are actually SAVING the file.

When you click on "Print" do you get a window where you can choose the printer? If so, make sure you have you actual printer selected.

    I re-read your second explanation again and saw acrobat. Acrobat installs their adobe document printer which is a program to save the file in PDF. When you want to print, you do not want that as the printer. This seems to be the default for Acrobat. Change your printer to you actual printer.

My Dell aio 926 will not print my tabc cert. That is some kind of acrobat adobe file. As far as I know I have this acrobat adobe thing installed on my pc.


Your pdf file may have its permissions set to disallow printing (!!!). Open the file, click on File menu, then goto Document Properties. Click on the Security tab. Under Restrictions, look at the first one Printing. Off to the right, it should say Allowed. If it doesn't, this is probably your problem, but you would also get an error message about not being able to print.

It could be how the pdf is setup, you can also try saving into a different format (if permissions allow). With document open, goto File, Save As, and specify a different file type (like jpeg or Tiff), enter a file name, and click on save / okay. Then try to print the file that was just created.

Is your printer able to print in/from other programs?

Can't print multiple PDF files in 11x17 format. I open windows explorer and select the specific PDF files. Click on File, Print. They all print out, but they all are 8 1/2 x 11 on a 11x17 paper, instead of...


Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes.
But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options:
1. Printer properties
2. Print preferences
3. Default print setup.
The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different).
It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.

If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.

You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.

Good luck :)

MY PRINTER WONT PRINT


1. Disconnect everything (usb and power cables.)
2. Plug in the power cable, turn on the printer.
3. Get the manual and drivers for your printer and reset it to factory defaults.
4. Delete the printer from Windows Printer control panel. Reboot.
5. If the drivers files you downloaded are .exe files, execute it and follow installation instructions.
Else, plug back the usb cable. Windows should detect it. If asking for drivers, point to those you just downloaded. If it where in .zip format, you first need to uncompress it to some folder.
