Did you mean just the cord was repaired or did you get a new pc??? Many times, once a computer is unhooked and transported to be repaired, sensitive settings and drivers can be upset by the move. Sounds bizarre but i know it happens because it even happens to me. The other thing is did anything get done to the internals of your pc, or the software changed. This is really important too. ie, did the repairer have to change any settings in the pc, in windows or any where. Please post exact changes if any. If no settings were touched and it was just the cord, i suggest completely uninstalling the printer from the pc. If you do not know how to do this, post back. Once all traces are removed, reinstall it. Make sure printer is completely uninstalled and new installation is smoothe and no hiccups. Now connect back up correctly and turn on. Your pc should recognise new hardware and configure it for you and away you go.

My printer is not printing


Without knowing any more, all I can do is take you through a tedious set of steps:
  1. Is it plugged in? Unplug the power cord at both ends, then plug it back in.
  2. Is it connected to your computer? Unplug the cord at both ends, then plug it back in.
  3. Is it turned on? Press the power button. Do any lights change (go on or off, change color, flash, etc.)?
  4. Send a print job to the printer. Does the printer show any signs of realizing it's been asked to print something (an indicator light or something moving inside)?
  5. Open the print queue. Delete all the jobs that are in there. Shut down the printer. Restart the computer. Turn the printer back on. Try printing.
  6. Are you getting error messages?
  7. What happened before it stopped working? Did you install new software? Move anything?

MY PRINTER WONT PRINT THE BLACK


Hello,

If the black ink wont print, you will have to try cleaning the print head.
Press the "ink" button and select "cleaning".

You can do up to a maximum of 5 cleanings, anything more then that is a waste.

If that still doesn't work then the print head is not working properly.
You will need ot have the machine repaired or just replace it.
Given the price for repair Vs a new printer, it's better to just replace the printer.

Thanks,

Pat

I had a paper jam this morning, cleared the paper jam, and now the printer will not power up. I tried to remove the usb cable, and the power cable, reboot the computer, and replug in the usb and power...


Hi,

First, Make sure that the printer is properly plugged in to a working electrical outlet and that it is hooked up to the computer as indicated. There should be two separate cables running out of your Dell 924, a power cord and a USB cable that communicates with the computer. If both of these aren't plugged in, then the machine will not function properly.

If the lights on your printer aren't working then it means one of two different things:

  • Printer has an internal electrical problem and needs repair or
  • Printer isn't receiving power from the outlet or power cord
Check whether, are you getting power from the socket by connecting some other component..If it works check whether the Power cord is propwerly connected, try pressing the power cord once..

If not the circuit may be damaged, Which cant be repaired inhome, you have to return to DELL service center and make it repaired

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

HP deskjet F380 - 'status: paper jam'. There is no paper jam!


Unplug the power cord and while doing that make sure printer is powered on i mean do not turn off the printer using the power button. When you unplug the power cord than press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Than release the power button and connect the power cord and then try to print.
