The Dell 3115 (and Xerox 6180 multifunction, and Lexmark X560) all have a common problem with the INSIDE surface of the scanner platen attracting a deposit. This makes it a little 'cloudy' to look at, and produces a bluish tint to colour photocopies.
Print a test page from the printer that includes colours from all four cartridges. Then make 2 photocopies - one using the document feeder, and one using the flatbed. One may be better than the other - as a work-around.
The REAL solution is to clean the inside of the scanner platen (glass), but you must be very careful, otherwise you'll trash the printer. It is a very complex procedure to remove the scanner platen completely. It can (with great care) be lifted from the front, being very careful not to strain the cables. It can be cleaned successfully.
You don't. Dell printers are made to be disposable. Nicer machines can be worked on limitedly but really all consumer grade ink printers are disposable. Sad I know. I would reccomend staying away from Dell, Lexmark, IBM and Kodak as they are all made by Lexmark. Generally not the highest quality machines with expensive ink. New Canon machines that take the CLI-221 cartridges are very nice along with most new HPs.
u will have to updaet the drivers from the support.dell.com
go to the site download the printer drivers for windows 7 on the xps machine run the setup , restart the computer it will start working fine
I have a Lexmark 1100 series printer that works with my Dell XPS M1530. So it is possible. I found this driver, http://www.xpvistasite.com/lexmark_x5130_8613.htm.
I never mess with the printer cd. I just pluged it in and vista found a driver for it. I only use the printer and the scanner.
Here is a link to setting up the printer from lexmark website. It is very helpful.
Please note though that there are different drivers for WINDOWS VISTA if that is the operating system you are using. The CD that came with the printer might not have the vista driver. Here is the link for the latest drivers from lexmark website for different operating systems.
