Dell Photo 966 All-In-One Printer Issues. HELP PLEASE.

I have a Dell Photo 966 all-in-one printer, and an hp laptop running on Windows 7. I installed the new printer drivers from the website, but when I try to print, it says cannot communicate with printer, enable bidirectional communication. I've gone to the ports tab over and over but it never saves the change. I've tried disabling my Firewall but still no cigar. HELP PLEASE.

Bidirectional Printing - A means of printing by a computer printer which prints one line from left to right, then the following line from right to left. Such printing is faster than printing in one direction only, as there is no need to wait for the carriage or other imaging mechanism to return to the left margin before starting a line.
how to enable bi-directional printing.here's how:

  1. -click on start
  2. -click on printers and faxes (control panel->printers and faxes)
  3. -right-click on Dell Photo All in One Printer 964 All-In-One icon
  4. - click on properties
  5. -click on ports tab
  6. -down at the bottom there's a small box before bi-directional support
  7. -tick the box to enable it then click apply,ok
  8. -try printing again

note: in vista , printers and faxes is printers.in win 7 ,it's devices and printers.
and properties in win 7 is printer properties

Dell photo one printer 966


Hello,
There should be a printer CD that came with the printer when you bought it. That's what you need to install to your computer. Or you can go to the website of dell which is www.support.dell.com and look for the printer model or the support and download page. Enter the model of your printer and the operating system that your computer is running. Install the driver. If you want to keep the driver or all drivers in your computer updated to make them work perfect, then install RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

Connecting gateway sx2800-01 to printer


This printer should be USB, so any USB port should work. Check with Dell to see if they have proper drivers (Windows 7) for your printer, and install them.

Does dell photo printer 966 work with i mac???


Unfortunately there is no direct support for the Mac and this printer, but here is something you can try:

1. You need a windows machine to initially set this up.
2. Turn the printer on and manually set the Network Settings from the Setup menu on the LED to what you want the printer to be. I recommend not using DHCP. I pick the >= 200 range for devices such as this, EX:
Enable DHCP: No
IP:192.168.1.200
MASK:255.255.255.0
GATEWAY:192.168.1.1
NOTE:It will not let you set up the SSID here. I do not use security, but just don't broadcast my SSID.wink.gif

3. Connect the USB to the windows machine and run the setup disc for the Dell as a Network install.
Select the USB device when searched, then choose to configure the internal network adapter. (This actually configures the printer's adapter)
It will ask you if you want to run the printer on USB or Wireless, choose whatever you want for the windows machine.
The SSID and security are set in these steps!

ON THE MAC
4. Go to Lexmark and download the LPD 9300 Series Driver:
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-per...p=Mac%20OS%20X

5. Open this dmg and run the installer. It will not find your printer, so choose to install a remote printer and search for 192.168.1.200 (in our example).

6. It will show a Dell AIO 966, select it and continue.

I tried this with several web installers from Lexmark, but this one finally worked only after this process.

I am going to connect my MACBOOK PRO now, I was just excited to get the news out.

Dell 966 printer wont scan


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Dell 966) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
