I've seen this happen with bad cables. I'd try a brand new, known good USB v2.0 rated cable. Also, don't use one that is longer than you need - I'd stick with a 6 foot cable at the longest for now, at least for testing.

Dell AIO Printer 946 I can't print a word document in black and white. When i click on printing preferences, it doesn't allow me to click on " print in black and white" Please help


In printing properties have you selected the 'grayscale' option, if still not working, in printer properties select maintenance > select Ink and cartridge settings > there select "black Ink only"

    I just put a new cartridge in my dell AIO 946 printer but it still says the ink level is low.


    well this always happens with all printers. I have a HP, in the beginning when I first bought the printer, it came with a ink cartridges, it showed the levels. But after the ink was all gone, it showed empty ink levels. The best way to solve this is to ignore this. When you see that your paper is poorly printer, then your ink cartridges need changing.

    Dell 946 printer wont scan on windows vista


    This is your driver causing the problem. If the download was for several printers you can try to reinstall the driver manually for your specific printer. If the driver was supposed to be for your specific printer then dell has put out a bad driver which they do sometimes. You can try alerting them through their forums,their customer support, or call them and once they know they have a problem, they're usually pretty quick to fix it.I would try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver first though sometimes they don't install right if the computer is under a heavy load.

    Can't scan from my Dell AIO 946


    OK, I can't believe I'm actually solving anyone's problem, but, this is what solved it for me. Following the instructions in my 946 AIO Owner's Manual, on page 87, there is a heading called Removing and Reinstalling Software. It says if your printer is not working correctly or if communication error messages appear, you can remove and reinstall the printer software. I did just that and my scanner is now back in service!!!! Hope this helps.

    Dell Inspiron6000 will not print


    Have you checked the cable?

    If all is right with the cables, try uninstalling and installing the printer again.

    Or visit www.dell.com for vista driver.

    But first make sure that the cables are right.

    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....

    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!!
