Question about Dell Photo 964 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Computer says there is no communication with the printer

The Dell Photo All in One Printer 966 was working with our Dell desk top and Dell laptop computer just fine, then it started saying that it couldn't communicate with the printer even though it was working before. Said it couldn't recognize the USB port. We tried using all the different USB ports and even buying another printer cable. I uninstalled the printer and re installed the printer again with the disk. Turned everything off and rebooted the computer but still didn't work. This printer is 3 years old. Sometimes the printer will start working but now no matter what we do it doesn't seem to want to work now. It's a nice printer and I wonder if it's worth trying to find a repair shop to fix it.

Couple of things to consider and try,,,have you tried another USB device in the computer, like a flash drive? If it can read the flash drive ok then the problem is not the USB port. Try using a different USB cable for the printer. Make sure your computer is up to date with the most current drivers. To me it sounds like a bad printer cable. Another thing to try is having the printer attached and when the error message comes up try wiggling the cable to see if communication is restored. If so then chances are that the printer cable is bad. Hope this helps.

Bidi communication not available


Do you mean bi directional? If so then why abbreviate it? How is it connected, to what is it connected, what drivers are you using, what are you trying to achieve and how did you come to the conclusion that it was not available?

Dell photo one printer 966


Hello,
There should be a printer CD that came with the printer when you bought it. That's what you need to install to your computer. Or you can go to the website of dell which is www.support.dell.com and look for the printer model or the support and download page. Enter the model of your printer and the operating system that your computer is running. Install the driver. If you want to keep the driver or all drivers in your computer updated to make them work perfect, then install RadarSync.

I hope this helps!

Dell 966 printer wont scan


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Dell 966) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
