    The printer is not connected, but has been used previously when attached via usb. But had to move it to another room.
    I did what you said, then after download of the Dell drivers.. the setup starts.. only gives me option for wifi or usb.. no bluetooth option.

First of all the printer must not be connected to the laptop in any way before the driver is installed. Close the printer, install and run a system cleaner like
to remove all traces of previous attempts. Reboot and launch the downloaded driver installer - i hope you downloaded (as in Save, not Run) the latest version
 When notified start the printer and connect to it by bluetooth

    In that case the printer can't be connected to a pc thru bluetooth, only thru WiFi or USB. The bluetooth can be used to connect the printer only to other devices like cameras.

I somehow uninstalled the Dell Imaging Toolbox for my V305 printer. How do I get it back?


I cannot find a separate software download for the Imaging Toolbox. I can only assume it comes with the driver itself when installed.

If you have the disk for the printer, uninstall the printer software you have already installed using the Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel. Restart your computer and look under the Start>Printers and Faxes and make sure it is not listed.

disconnect the USB cable from either the computer or printer and insert your disk and install as you did originally. Connect the USB cable when prompted.This should reinstall the driver and Imaging Toolbox.

If you do not have the disk, you can download the software from the Dell website at:

Dell V305/305w Driver

Download the software to your desktop. Uninstall the previous software...reboot...then double-click the file on your desktop.

Hope this helps. If you have further questions, just use the Comment link.
