I was trying to get the Dell Printer 942 to scan by installing the All-In-One Center but couldn't get it to work. now the REAL problem is I can't print anything. I get a response "Communion not available. Printer cannot communication with computer. Please turn on "Enable bidirectional communication" setting in the printer properties dialog. I can't find that option in the printer properties dialog box. I have tried closing everything down and unplugging everything and plugging in again--nothing works. Pls help. Thx

Ok, I presume you are using a parallel printer, what you have to do, is go into the BIOS, SETUP, and find the Printer Port, LPT1, and set the port to bi-directional, or SPP, now save, and reboot. Now reinstall again, and it should work. ( It may just work anyway, after reboot, that may be worth a try first)

I would like to be able to use the scanner on my Dell 942 All-in-one printer, but the Dell All-in-one center has disappeared and I can't seem to get that to work. I have an idea it has something to do...


Hey!

You can download the software/driver from here. It's recommended to download and install all the 3.

Prior the installation, COMPLETELY remove ALL Dell software (related to the printer, through Programs and Features, then restart your computer. Afterwards, install the downloaded software.

Good luck,
Pelu.

Have a Dell 942 All-In-One Center printer and it won't scan saying it can't find this file: dlbusccp What do I need to do?


hi there !

-if is missing a file and it would not scan, you need to uninstall and reinstall the printer software for the program for the scanner to be reinstalled as well
-you need to use the CD of the printer to do this

NOTE: driver downloaded from the website does not contain the program for the scanner, you can only get it from the Dell Printer CD

cheers !

Dell 922 printer all in one


I have a Dell 942, and I also ran into problems scanning. Basically, the Dell "All In One Center" refused to open, and when the printer generates a scan, it tries to send it to that application. What worked for me was uninstalling Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and 8. Once I was back to IE6, my Dell printer functioned normally. Upgrading to IE7 immediately "broke" it again.
I discovered this after running a repair installation of Windows (a recommended action any time you start experiencing weird problems). I did not have to format my hard drive or lose any data, although some applications had to be reinstalled or re-patched afterward. But the repair install took me back to IE6, and magically, my printer suddenly worked again! When I went to the Microsoft Update site and upgraded to IE7, poof! Dell AIO Center would no longer open, and I couldn't scan.
If this solution is helpful to you, please rate it.
Thank you,
