SOURCE: Dell 946 AIO printer won't stop beeping after firmware update attempt

I just experienced this problem today. The beeping means that when you tried to update the firmware it damaged the printer internally. I would have to assume there is some kind of chip in there that can be flashed and it got cooked by the firmware update. Dell is sending me a new one.

SOURCE: Document Jam in Dell 1600n

The Automatic Document Feed (ADF) has a white rubber pad that wears out. You can find it by opening the ADF cover and removing the roller bar. Under that is the white rubber pad. Pinch the sides together and the assembley comes out. Contact Dell for the replacement. You may also refer to the Dell 1600n Owners Manual for instructions.

SOURCE: Dell 1600n printer driver for Windows 2003 Server

I had a similar problem deploying these printers, however i found using the XP drivers in 2003 does work fine. Not sure why dell doesnt have an installer for this printer in 2003 server, but here you go.

ftp://ftp.us.dell.com/printer/R165289.EXE

extract that file, note its destination directory. do not attempt to run the setup.exe, it will fail saying your operating system is not supported.

instead navigate to (if you didnt change the path) C:DelldriversR165289p0nPrinterPCLWINXP

this folder contains the driver you need to install manually.

one stange thing about these lexmark based network printers is the need to select 'local printer' during install, uncheck automatically search for my device, and then create a new TCP/IP port. Use the IP address provided by the network configuration print out you can access on the front panel of the printer. now just make sure to select 'lexmark network card' as the type of network interface. it should now ask you for your printer type, click have disk, and point to the driver folder mentioned earlier.

hope this helps. thanks alot dell.

You should try to reinstall the firmware update. It was interrupted and that could have led to this problem.

Overheat message comes on.


First, you need to make sure that you are using the best settings for your printer. Here are a few things to consider:
1) Environment - If this printer is stored in a cabinet, under a desk, on the floor, etc., it is likely that any heat created by the fuser doesn't have room to escape properly. Be sure to give at least an 1.5" clearance on all sides.
2) Power - The parts inside of a printer are all rated to operate using certain voltages. That being the case, you need to use unregulated power (i.e. - wall outlet) to make sure the parts are given as much (and only as much) power as necessary to operate. Using powerstrips rated at different voltages can create either not enough or too much power which could mean the fuser operates at too low or too high of temperatures.
3) Media - Make sure the paper you're using is rated properly for the printer. Most printers accept a certain paper weight (found in the owners manual). Contact Dell if you've misplaced this.
4) This particular printer isn't rated for too high a speed, which means the fuser shouldn't have to run as hot. If you still get overheat messages, you could try updating the firmware on the printer at support.dell.com or even contact their technical support.

Prints faint copies


If the print rubs off the page, this means the toner is not being fused to the page. Fused......this is done by the fuser. This would have nothing to do with light print.

The dell (1600n and 1815n /1815dn) printer drivers has a toner saver mode, which can contribute to light print.

To turn Toner Save Mode off, (Windows XP) perform the following steps:
  1. Click the Start button, click Settings, and then click Printer and Faxes.
    The Printers and Faxes window appears.
  2. Right-click Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn, and left-click Printing Preferences.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Printing Preferences window appears.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Advanced Options window appears.
  4. Click to highlight Toner Save.
  5. Click the drop-down list and change it to Off and click OK.
  6. Click OK.
One thing that you mentioned in your post "it takes the printer forever to warm up". The fuser does have to reach operational temperature in order for it to fuse the toner to the page. So it is possible that you are having fuser problems, because of the time it is taking for it to warm up. Another thing that can contribute to the warm up time is not plugging the laser printer directly into a wall outlet. This would be true for any laser printer, not just a Dell laser printer. The low voltage power supply is what works the fuser, along with sensors and other motors in the printer.

Replacing the fuser and or the low voltage power supply in this model of printer is not an easy task. If using a Dell branded toner cartridge and checking the toner saver mode does not fix the issue. Then you would be looking at more expense then the machine would possibly be worth.

Dell 1600n - nothing happening when I push Scan Button


I had the same problem as both posters.

I downloaded the most recent firmware from dell (3.11T, A03) and reinstalled it. When you run the program, there's a radio button that says "printer" and one that says "network". I did the one that said "printer" and nothing happened. Then I ran the firmware update again and picked the one that said "network" and it started working shortly afterward.

I'm assuming that some component of firmware in the network card was messed up. I could still use the network printing but the "scan" button wasn't working. This fixed it for me. Your Mileage May Vary.

Dell 946 AIO printer won't stop beeping after firmware update attempt


Same thing happened to me....yesterday I went online at www.dell.com to download the latest firmware & driver for my Dell 946 Printer. After downloading the firmware the printer went haywire and is rendered useless. It emits beeps and the green power light will stay lit then flash every 3 seconds or so. There is no read-out on the lcd display.
I phoned Dell only to be told I should not have downloaded the firmware and that Dell does not recommend downloading firmware. If that is the case then why is the firmware listed on the Dell site with instructions to do so? I was advised that no support could be offered because the printer is out of warranty and was told to uninstall the printer and re-install. I have tried everything, including uninstalling printer, unplugging printer, etc. and nothing has helped. I have researched online and note that this is a recurrent problem. This problem is noted in the forums section of Dell.com - I have followed directions listed in the forum section of Dell.com as noted (see below websites) but this has not fixed the problem....

http://help.com/post/233917-dell-aio-946-printer-help

Since this seems to be a known problem and the problem is actually caused by downloading firmware from the Dell site I feel it is an injustice not to offer some type of support to rectify the problem. I have always bought Dell products and advised others to do so, but with this problem I feel that I will be changing my brand that I purchase.

I will be contacting Consumer Reports - I feel this warrants some type of recall!!

No paper light stays on and printer won't print (paper is full)


There is a black, curved-shape piece that hangs down (protrudes) from within the paper bay (visible with cartridge removed) that is spring-loaded. That piece might be jammed or broken.
