    I also have this problem.

    I can print in BW and color. I can also Copy in BW and color.

    But when I try to scan it just hangs up. No moving scan light, nothing.

    Computer reports that the A940 thinks it's busy when it's just sitting there.

    I can try to change the "scan to file, email, etc" option but it makes no difference at all.

Sometimes these printers/scanners MUST be plugged directly into the wall outlet to scan..check your user manuals.

Scan all 4 of them in, you can use adobe acrobat to combine them or search for a similar program via google that will combine pdf's, they're out there and they work great!

SOURCE: scanning from printer can't see any computers.

for normal scanning you can go to control panel and choose the option of scanner and camera wizard and do the scanning but it is good if you install the driver of printer which is contain the scanner software and give you more option of scanning.

have a nice day and dont forget to give rate please...

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?


Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
