Hello,

Maybe it has not ink for the color you want to print or the printhead is clogged. In this last, you should change the printhead.

Thanks.

Did you figure this out? You should have a "Dell All-In-One Center" that was installed with the drivers for the printer. Try searching for it by pasting that phrase in the box in your "Start" button. When you locate it, drag the shortcut to your desktop or up in the top of the programs in the Start location. When you click on the Dell All-In-One Center icon, you should find some options for scanning.

I have a dell AIO 926 printer that was working fine and now, after not having been used for a few weeks, will not print. The printing status bar will not go past 50%. I have uninstalled/installed it twice...


It sounds like the printer itself has failed. I have literally dealt with 7 of this Dell AIO printers that have failed in the last 48 hours. Try attaching this printer to another computer to confirm. Hopefully you have a laptop or a friends computer you can take it to and try it on that. I would bet it will not function. If that's the case the printer has failed. How old is the printer? 4 of the 7 I have dealt with were just over 1 year old, literally weeks out of warranty, which seems to be very common for these Dell AIO units to fail just outside of warranty :(.
Let me know and I can help more, Tim

Printer status window interface stopped working dell AIO 926


I know this sounds too simple, but get a new USB cord. I had the exact same problem and it was driving me crazy. I followed all the advice about uninstalling, reinstalling and updating multiple times and it never fixed the problem. Finally, my husband made the simple suggestion that maybe it was a problem with the connectivity of the USB cord. I didn't have much faith in it, but I bought a new USB cord and hooked it up - and I have never had a problem with the printer since then. My original USB cord (the one replaced) was the one that came with the Dell printer - perhaps there is a flaw in the cord somewhere. ?

I am trying to print in black and white on my dell photo AIO printer 926 it wont even let me check the box for to print in black and white what can I do?


The problem was that the print options had switched to print using the color cartridge to make up for my empty black ink cartridge.

After you click on print, and then click the preferences button, next go to the Advanced tab. Once there, there should be another button that says, More options. Once that tab is opened, check the box that says, "Use black cartridge to print in black and white."

I was convinced that something was wrong with my new printer cartridge and called Dell. Unfortunately, they wouldn't or couldn't help me and I just lucked up this solution.
