Power cord for my Dell 962 all-in-one printer

I've got a dell 962 AIO printer, Minus the power cord. I called dell and had them send me a power cord but it still isn't what I need. I believe I'm still missing part of the connection that the cord would plug into. There's only one spot where this cord would go into and it's definitely missing some kind of cartridge shaped adapter that the power cord would plug into. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    We moved and lost the power cord adapter cartridge that fits into the back of my Dell 962 series all-in-one printer. Obviously can't plug into my computer w/out it- I have the actual cord but not the adapter. Does anyone know where I can just purchase the adapter?

    I have the same problem that basemmel99, I'm missing the powercord adapter cartridge. This is the piece that the power corder plugs into that inserts into the back of the printer. Can't use the power cord without it. Dell has discontinued production of this piece and I can't get it through them. Can you help?

    I am missing my Dell 962 All-in-one Printer Power Cord Connector. It is somewhere in my house but I could not find it. I would be glad to purchase one as soon as I know you have some.

    Thank you,

Yes, it's an AC adapter.
Very similar to a power converter for a laptop

I had one of these printers before (I replaced it with a 966)
I don't have the part # but if you contact Dell they should be able to find and provide you with it.

    If you know the voltage, and amperage (these are both VERY important) you might be able to go to a place like Radio Shack and find a universal power supply that will work.



    It is extremely important that you match voltage and amperage exactly for the printer, or you will burn out the electronics. Under voltage and amperage can be equally harmful. So it if says 12.1 volts, and 1.2 amps (these are just examples, not the real numbers for that printer) that's what you must use.

    Cannot print over network on Dell AIO 962 using Dell 3300 wireless print adapter. Previously had no problem printing over the network, but for some reason my linksys WRT54G router reset to defaults so I...


    Dell 3300 Wireless Printer adapter has always been a hard nut to crack. To begin with, completely remove the printer drivers from your computer using the utility http://ftp.us.dell.com/printer/R166248.zip .Then download and save the latest version of your printer drivers and the wireless adapter utility from the support website. Use this file for the installation rather than the CD that was shipped along with the printer. Use the link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=&SystemID=PRN_ALL_A962 . Reset the wireless printer adapter by disconnecting all cables, pressing and holding the Reset button at the back of the adapter using a paper clip for almost 10 seconds and plugging in the power cord back in while the reset button is still pressed. All lights will flash for a while and then the wireless light will go stable. Now follow the steps to install your printer and adapter described in the link: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/document?c=us&cs=19&dl=false&l=en&s=dhs&docid=756E3AC8B96309EDE040AE0AB8E10ABF&doclang=en

    Is there a driver for a Dell AIO 962 for Mac?


    Dell does not have a downloadable version for Mac. I looked around for you in their support section and there is no MAC suppost for any of their printers. You might have to get another printer. You could try and call Dell at 800-285-1653 .Good luck

    Dell 922 AIO printer~~ does not power on when press power button all cords are connected ~~ is there a power supply in the power cord that fails ??


    I had a simalar problem. On the back of the printer where the power cord plugs in it is connected to a power adapter. The adapter was burnt out. the power adapter slides out. Mine was melted easy to see. I ordered one from dell. If you do order one from dell make sure they send you the correct part. They sent me the wrong part the first time. There customer service dept. ha gone way downhill.. Regards Frank
