If you haven't given up on your Dell AIO 966 yet (today I almost did, in fact I placed an order for a new printer today, and I think I might cancel it if this works) -- try this. See if it works for you too. It's a kludge but it might help.
Get the printer's IP address (print the network settings page or whatever). Browse to that address in your web browser (that is, if your printer is at 192.168.0.101, go to http://192.168.0.101 in Internet Explorer or Firefox or whatever browser you use). Click on "Configuration," then "Scan to Network Host Management." Check the box for "Delete all hosts" and click on the "Delete" button. Wait for it to finish doing its thing, then go to the printer, power it off, wait a few seconds, and power it back on. Wait a minute or two for your PC to find the printer and connect to it again, then try your scan.
If yours behaves like mine, it will scan now. Now, that would just prove to me that the issue is with the darn firmware in the printer -- and Dell should fix it, even if the printer is discontinued. They've heard us griping for years, they should fix it!

Lexmark x5650 cannot retrieve application list


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

the reason why the printer is giving you that error msg is because the all in one center is not communicating properly with the programs on your computer to your printer.

try to scan directly to your computer using the all in one center instead.

Scanner


this happened to me yesterday after recieving whatever lexmark update my computer downloaded. I restarted everything, computer and turned on/off fax and unplugged for a bit.

It seems to be working OK now.

I know that's lame dell-style, advice, but the restart worked for me.
