Did you install the DELL printer-driver software onto the new laptop?

If you've lost that CD-ROM, access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://support.dell.com

and enter '946' and do a search for the device-driver software.

Hi, try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for your printer and ensure that the printer its detected. If it is detected, contact printer support for troubleshoting. It is a possible issue with the printer. :)

Describe your 946 All-In-One InkJet Printer Problem I'm running windows 7 on a Gateway laptop and managed to get it to print at one point but then installed some other items to get it to recognize...


This printer is not a wireless rpinter, so I guess you were trying to attach it to a print server of some type.

Try using these Recommended Wireless Router Settings,I use channel 11. I would make a new SSID to make connecting easier.

If your computer came with Windows 7, then follow the procedure below. If you upgraded your computer, the did you install the chipset drivers first. If using a Dell Computer that was upgraded, the desktop/notebook system utility and the chipset drivers need installed first or the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order

First run Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print job in the queue.

Disconnect the printer.

Download and run the patch(printer cleanup utility) until it prompts you to restart your computer.

Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed.
Manual Printer Driver Removal

Download the Vista 32-bit drivers for Windows 7 32-bit or the Vista 64-bit drivers for Windows 7 64-bit. Install the Vista drivers in the Vista
Compatibility mode You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on).

Can you print to a Dell 946 All-In-One InkJet


Dell does not have Mac drivers for this printer. Your Dell printer was made by Lexmark and if you can find a similar printer on Lexmark’s website, it might or might not work. You can also try Gutenprint for Mac OS X which may or may not work.

Solution for "dell 946 aio reads error 1203 replacment cartridge wont read"


This is what I found on a Dell Community site.

It's mean your catridges overflow even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark have a proble and overlook.
Solution:
I use the klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the catridges a couple times then run clean catridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex on those holder contact panel.

To reset the error code, disconnect the power cord from the wall. Also remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Then connect everything again.

Hope this helps

Printer won't print any Adobe files


When you click on "Print" do you get a window where you can choose the printer? If so, make sure you have you actual printer selected.
