Yes you need to install the whole software suite to have it working. If you are using your Samsung on USB connection disconnect the printer BEFORE starting software installation.

I cannot send a fax!!!! I'm so frustrated, I have done everything the instructions have said to do, and it's not working. Before I take this back,what else should I try.


Have you tried to fax directly from the machine? For this you need to connect the phone line to your All-in-One Pixma. Can you copy directly on the machine. If you can do that the machine is not at fault. You do not even need ink for faxing.
The next step is to hook the machine to the computer through USB and install the software (drivers and application). Try to print from the computer. If it works then you may have a configuration problem with you connection (Ethernet or Wireless).
I will finish with the obvious: Reread the installation procedure patiently. Reinstall the drivers and the application software. Read the router software and use the router management to configure your connection.

I cannot receive fax on my dell940 printer. help


The A940 is not a standalone fax machine, and needs to work with your computer to send and receive faxes. Your computer needs a dialup modem installed and a connection to a phone line, and you need to have fax software installed. The printer actually only works as a scanner to input a document to be faxed, and as a printer to display a received fax. The installation CD supplied with the printer has fax software on it you can install, and other software is available online. This document from Dell (the fax section of the user's guide) may be helpful.

I bought a new computer, i do not have the disk for printer, printer works, although i cannot get the fax to work, any ideas?


I would advise going here first:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=15601

And input your operating system in the SELECT OS box and see if you can download the software for this model. It may install the fax operation drivers for you and should include all software that was on the CD.

I tried to fax from my computer using the x7170, but it only prints. I can fax from the machine. Is there another software I need, or driver? Thanks, Ken


Hello. Make sure that the fax software is already installed in the computer. There should be a fax object in Printers and Faxes/Printer/Printers and Devices(for Windows) or in Print and Fax(for Macintosh). If there is, when you send a fax from the computer, make sure to use the correct print object which is for the fax. If driver is not installed, reinstall the software.

It will no longer scan and will not receive Fax. It will still copy and print


Kindly install the scanner software for printer..You just re install the driver software cd it will automatically install the missing components.
Which is contains the hp director software. Which shows the scanning option For normal scanning you can choose the option of Scanners and Cameras wizard in control panel. But it is better if you have software disk of printer because it contains more option.
for fax
Go to menu option and choose the option fax and set the parameter like auto receive or manual set the ring auto answer mode after certain ring. If it is in auto receiving mode it will receive the fax after the ring which you set. Make sure the phone wire which you insert in fax machine getting proper dial tone and getting out going calling facility.
Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!

After much thrashing, here is the solution to the problem. Somehow the printer drivers lost coordination with the corresponding Windows supporting programs. You would think that reinstalling the printer drivers would fix the problem, AND IT DOES, but there are 3 tricks:

· Uninstall everything associated with this printer with the install disk in the computer (this may really not be necessary, but it worked for me). [This is also the solution when the a window comes up asking for TrayApp to be inserted using a disk—they mean the hp install disk].

· After the un-install, MAKE SURE you ALSO delete the printer using the control panel. This is critical. If this doesn’t happen, the corresponding Windows software is somehow hooked to the wrong thing when the reinstall happens. Then reboot the system.

· Install the new drivers with the printer off, and the USB disconnected from the printer. Reboot the system [not sure the reboot is necessary]. After the computer has booted, connect the USB, and power up the printer. The computer will recognize the printer and put the printer icon in the Control Panel.

It turns out that correcting the driver mis-coordination by BOTH uninstalling the printer drivers and taking the printer out of the control panel, then properly reinstalling solves BOTH the fax problem, and the protection fault problem! Amazing such a little thing can make such a difference!
