Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I recently reinstalled my operating system (Windows XP) and reinstalled the printer drivers both from the Dell website and from the CD. When I click "Scan" nothing happens. It copies and prints fine, though. I went into the control panel and opened "scanners and cameras" and clicked on that and nothing happened. Any help??? Thanks!
Hi there, just found this solution to work perfectly. i just freaked out for a moment with the same problem. Use this or just type fax and scan in your help function. Hope this helps!
Before you begin, make sure that you've installed your scanner on the computer and that the scanner is turned on.

I spent more than one hour: searched the Internet, tried changing the Drivers, checked the USB cable, restarted Printer, Computer, running Eusing Registry cleaner, checking hardware/device errors.... Eventually I went to Dell site and made the same search and within minutes it works fine!!!
SOLUTION: Just unplug the electrical connection from wall and reconnect... (6 years old solution)

I had the same problem. I brought a new laptop and reinstalled the printer and everything worked except my scanner. After researching everywhere and trying to troubleshoot myself. I just unplugged the electrical connection. Once I replugged..what a surprise! What a simple and easy fix.. Cheers to Chandra - the thread right above mine..
