Question about Dell 962 Photo All-In-One InkJet Printer

Scanner & fax wont work

We cant get the scanner or fax to work although we apparently successfully installed the 962 on an XP Media Center SP2 box; we get Runtime Errors that prevents us from opening the all in one center, the setup utility, and when we try to scan and do all the proper steps there is no activity on the computer as expected. We are getting good communication with the printer and can print fine.

Re: scanner & fax wont work

This issue could be occurring due to number of reasons, it could be due to the corrupt All in one software or it could be due to the scanner hardware as well, since you have confirmed that the printer prints fine you are absolutely right that the communication between the printer and the computer is good, however to know where the problem lies and to fix the issue disconnect the printer form the computer and try to make a copy form the printer itself, if the printer is able to make a copy then the printer scanner device is working absolutely fine, however if the printer scanner is unable to make a copy check if there is any error message displayed on the printer LCD, if you find any error please keep me posted so that I can send you the resolution for the relevant error, alternately you can download and install the firmware form the Dell’s support site to fix the issue, here is the link form which you can download and install the firmware:
Please make sure that you do not turn off the computer or the printer while the firmware is being downloaded or installed.
After the firmware is downloaded and installed then restart the printer and the computer.
Check if the issue is resolved, if the issue still persists then you will have to replace the printer as there is nothing much that can be done to fix the issue as the scanner hardware is failed.
If the printer is able to make a copy form the printer then try these steps:
Download and install the updated driver for the Dell’s support site, however before you download and reinstall the drivers uninstall the previous version of the driver before you install the latest version, here is how you can uninstall the previous driver.

  1. Insert the Disk labeled Dell All in one center disk in the CD ROM.
  2. Click Next and select Uninstall form the list.
  3. Click on continue to uninstall the software.
  4. After the All in one software is uninstalled disconnect the printer form the computer and the restart the system.
  5. Download the latest driver form the Dell’s support site and then install it.
Here is the link
Follow these instructions to download and install the latest drivers:
1.Click Download Now, to download the file.
2.At the Export Compliance Disclaimer window, click Yes, I Accept
this Agreement.
3.When the File Download window appears, click Save this program to
disk (Windows XP users, click Save) and click OK. The Save In: window
4.From the Save In: field, click the down arrow then click to
select Desktop and click Save. The file will download to your desktop.
5.If the Download Complete window appears, click Close. The file
name icon appears on your desktop.

1.Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled 962ENA01.exe.
The Self-Extractor window appears.
2.Click OK or Continue.
The Self-Extracting Driver Installation window appears and prompts to
extract files to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R92834.
3.Leave all of the default settings and click Unzip or OK. If the
directory doesn't exist, you'll be prompted to create one. Click Yes. A
Self Extractor window appears and indicates C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R92834 files were

My Lexmark x6170 all-in-one Printer will not scan

I have the same printer, Windows Vista, and also only use the device drivers, but do not experience the problem you are having. The only problem I have with it is that scanning using MS Office 2007 times out before the image can completely transfer. So uninstalling your existing drivers and then reinstalling may do the trick.

If you still wish to install the All-In-One Center software, Lexmark will only provide the device drivers, as you have discovered. However, there are reports that the Lexmark X6100 series AIO (All-In-One) is identical to the Dell A960 AIO. And, fortunately, Dell is kind enough to provide the similar All-In-One Center software.

Click here for the 32-bit Windows XP version. (just in case)
Click here for the 32-bit Windows Vista version.

Give it a try and please report back as to whether or not it worked for you.

C++ Runtime Error for Dell Photo AIO 962 printer dlbxmon.exe

I had the same problem and was able to fix it by following the instructions in this link:

Apparently, the regular uninstall procedure does not completely uninstall the software drivers. Then, if new drivers or software are installed, a conflict is created between the old drivers and the new drivers. You have to first run the DellXPCleanUpUtility to completely clean out the old software drivers. Then, you can install the new drivers successfully.

Getting error when trying to fax or scan

The L7580 is not meant to be set up as a scanning device on a network. This unit can only function properly as a USB connected device to have all the features work. Also, for the software to install with out problems, all other All in One software fro previous HP printers need to be removed. Once we did that and did clean install using USB only then did it work.

Won't uninstall

Download the "cleanup utility" from dell website and run it. It will remove all traces of dell printer software from the system. Once that is done you can reinstall it.

Download and install full software and driver package for your machine from brothers web site, it sounds like you have installed the print drivers but not the scanning software.
