Is the Dell A940 compatible with imac computers?


Hello there!

As i know dell printers dont offer you ability to use them with mac computers, but i know that you could use your printer as a server from some windows os pc, and connect it with your imac computer, if you are able to do that here you go, detail instruction will be provided for you in next text lines.

This document gives a detailed explanation of how to set up an HP DeskJet 722C printer that is attached to a Windows XP computer so that the printer can be used by a Mac OS X computer on a local area network (LAN). If your printer is slightly different, or you have a different version of Windows, or you're using a different Unix than Mac OS X, you'll have to adapt these instructions with your own creativity.
Be aware that these procedures may not be necessary at all if the printer you have has Mac drivers, and other Microsoft incantations are working properly. You may be able to get off easy, but then, you probably wouldn't be searching the Internet looking for these instructions. Your mileage may vary.
Thanks to the detailed directions at http://pnm2ppa.sourceforge.net/PPA_networking/PPA_networking-4.html which gave me most of the information I needed to make these detailed instructions.
The process falls into these five general steps:
  1. On Windows: Make sure you have a working printer set up on your Windows XP computer (this is not covered here).
  2. On Windows: Install the software needed to emulate a Postscript printer and redirect printing ports
  3. On Windows: Set up an emulated Postscript printer on Windows XP that will actually print to the (probably non-Postscript) printer set up in step one.
  4. On Windows: Set up Unix LPR Printer Services on Windows XP that will point to the emulated Postscript printer in step three that in turn points to the real printer in step one.
  5. On Mac OS X: Set up an LPR over IP printer in Mac OS X pointing to your Windows XP computer.
What follows are some email messages that people have sent me about some problem they overcame that I did not encounter. I'm sorry I cannot "boil down" their advice, because I no longer have a PC, but here is what they have to say.

After reinstalling windows vista home premium and microsoft works


Pushing the continue button and getting a test page just lets you know the printer is functional. This is a test without having the computer involved. If you can print a test page from the print driver, this lets you know that there is communication between the computer and the printer.

Uninstall your current drivers for the 1700, there are 2 places to look for the drivers, one would be in your all programs list, Dell Printer, uninstall, the other would be in control panel, programs and features, look for the dell printer software there. Once you have this uninstalled, go to device manager while the printer is still attached to your computer. In device manger look for the icon that represents the printer, right click it and then click uninstall. Now detach your printer, close device manager, restart your computer. Next you will boot back to the desktop, attach your printer, if windows recognizes and tries to install the printer, stop/cancel it. Install the printer drivers from the file you downloaded from the Dell support site. Now try printing from your application.


Dell's support site and download the most recent Vista drivers. Here is the link for Vista driver http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&osl=EN&catid=-1&impid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=PRN_LSR_1700N&hidos=WW1&hidlang=en&TabIndex=

1700 printer


How did you install the printer?
I have found that if you just let your computer recognise new hardware, it really has a hard time with the USB printing to the 1700's.

Originally there was a disk that came with the 1700 printer. You do want to use that.
During the install, you run the software, and then turn on the printer. (You can have the printer on during the install, but ignore the Windows Wizards that come up).
If you don't have the original 1700 install disk, you can download it from Dell.

The problem is with USB port configuration. These little 1700's are just a pain sometimes if not installed the way they were originally designed.

Dell printer began printing light


Check the default print quality. It may be set to "Draft". Also, there are numerous additional settings within the printer driver. Verify the quality settings first.
