All functions work on my 1600n printer with the exception of the scanner. The workstation names that normally appear when a doc is scanned do not appear


The Dell 1600n requires that the Dell Network Scan Manager is running. Windows Vista and Windows 7 require user level authorization for this app to run properly and may be prompting you at start up. If you are telling it "no" when propmted then this is one thing that can be hanging you up. It is also possible the app is simply not running at all. Go to start>programs>Dell>Network Scan and see if it picks it up then. This app is how the dell printer itself gets the names to put in the list of available workstations to scan to.

Prints faint copies


If the print rubs off the page, this means the toner is not being fused to the page. Fused......this is done by the fuser. This would have nothing to do with light print.

The dell (1600n and 1815n /1815dn) printer drivers has a toner saver mode, which can contribute to light print.

To turn Toner Save Mode off, (Windows XP) perform the following steps:
  1. Click the Start button, click Settings, and then click Printer and Faxes.
    The Printers and Faxes window appears.
  2. Right-click Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn, and left-click Printing Preferences.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Printing Preferences window appears.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Advanced Options window appears.
  4. Click to highlight Toner Save.
  5. Click the drop-down list and change it to Off and click OK.
  6. Click OK.
One thing that you mentioned in your post "it takes the printer forever to warm up". The fuser does have to reach operational temperature in order for it to fuse the toner to the page. So it is possible that you are having fuser problems, because of the time it is taking for it to warm up. Another thing that can contribute to the warm up time is not plugging the laser printer directly into a wall outlet. This would be true for any laser printer, not just a Dell laser printer. The low voltage power supply is what works the fuser, along with sensors and other motors in the printer.

Replacing the fuser and or the low voltage power supply in this model of printer is not an easy task. If using a Dell branded toner cartridge and checking the toner saver mode does not fix the issue. Then you would be looking at more expense then the machine would possibly be worth.

Dell 1600n to be used on an imac


Hello! Unfortunately, Dell printers mainly supply Windows drivers on their website. To print to this printer, your new iMac will probably pull a generic driver to use with the printer. It should still work no problem, as you're saying, however you won't be able to use the software that's available on the PC. The downloads available for your Dell printer are here:
Dell 1600n Printer Downloads

You can tell by clicking that link and looking under Operating System that only Windows operating systems are available, as well as the software shown below, which is only made for Windows based systems. As for the PaperPort software, that program is made by a company called Nuance. When you purchased your printer, you most likely received a trial or full OEM version from Dell along with your new printer as a software bundle deal. From what I can see, the software is only Windows based. Sorry!

Below is the link to a free viewer that can still read your PaperPort files:

Windows Vista can't find networkd Dell 1600n


Make sure you're using the drivers for Vista, which can be found on support.dell.com. You'll want to use the choice for Vista 32-bit.

Also, try turning off your firewall, as it may be blocking the network data.
