Looking for a parts list diagram. Had to take this printer apart and I found a loose part laying in the bottom of the printer. Dont know where it goes. About 1 inch long and has a profile similar to the symbol { with a tab on one edge. The material is made from is a soft rubbery semi-clear. Very flexible.
Can you help?

SOURCE: need help with printer dell 942 paper jam


Paper jams can be real or false. The all-in-one may report a paper jam when there is not any jammed paper, however, the solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same. Up-grading the printer firmware could also fix this kind of issue, however I would appreciate if you try the steps below before you up-grade the printer firmware.
To fix the paper Jam errors please try the following steps:
1. Confirm that no foreign materials are inside the machine.
2. Confirm that usable paper is set.
3. Confirm that the paper is set properly.
4. Confirm that recommended paper is used, and the number of sheets set does not exceed the required limit.
5. Disconnect the printer power cord as well as the printer cable form the printer.
6. Turn the printer upside down and shake the printer in order to remove any obstacle which is stuck inside the printer causing the paper jam error.
Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges and check carefully if there is any small piece of paper which is stuck inside, if so remove it carefully.
7. Disconnect the printer power cord and press and hold the power button on the printer for about 15 to 20 seconds( this will release the flee power) and reconnect the printer and check.

If the above mentioned steps do not fix the issue please up-grade the printer firmware form the web site. However make sure that you do not turn off either your printer or computer when you are downloading and installing the printer firmware.

Should you require any further assistance regarding the printer or even for any other computer related issue please feel free to contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.

You don't. Dell printers are made to be disposable. Nicer machines can be worked on limitedly but really all consumer grade ink printers are disposable. Sad I know. I would reccomend staying away from Dell, Lexmark, IBM and Kodak as they are all made by Lexmark. Generally not the highest quality machines with expensive ink. New Canon machines that take the CLI-221 cartridges are very nice along with most new HPs.

HTML needs to be downloaded and saved on your computer. Once you have it extracted, it will appear like a Help program.

I cant let my Dell all in one 942 go wast just because i am now

I guess you are out of luck coughed up this.

"I found a reference that seems to indicate that the 942 is a rebranded Lexmark p6250. If that's true, give this drivera shot. You may have to manually add the printer and choose the driver from the list."

I have a MAC and want to use a DELL AIO 942 printer

It is very tricky but I think that i may have a inkling here... Dell does not make any printers n the ones they sell are just rebranded Lexmark printers... I referenced my database & found that the Dell 942 is a rebranded Lexmark p6250... now from the following link select your Mac OS version n download the driver file

Lemme tell you this is a practical assumption but I have a feeling that this might work so would you be kind enough to lemme know if this worked for you...

My fingers are crossed :-)
