Turning Off Power Save Mode on Dell All in One 948 Red Printer

I can't find a way to turn off power save option on this printer. It's a shared printer located upstairs and I don't want to have to run up and down the stair just to make sure the power is on before printing. The printer will not print while in power save mode.

CAN THE DELL AIO 948 PRINTER BE USED FOR SHARING


Yes, If it is connected to a computer on your home network, right click the printer, setup sharing. For example, if you have a laptop on the same home network, Add a network printer to the laptop and print wirelessly without a wireless printer. This may help clarify: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Install-a-printer-on-a-home-network OR http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Install-a-printer-on-a-home-network

How do I turn off the sleep mode on a Dell MFP1815dn?


Hi there!

The printer's menu system should give you the option to turn off Power Save Mode.

Select Menu/Machine Setup/Power Save and the option should be available to turn off the feature.

This printer seems to have a reputation for causing headaches when waking up from sleep mode. Hopefully this will be your relief!

Good luck!

Every time I turn on my printer, a Dell 948, it prints a page


Hi
We have 30+ printers... which we use for testing empty inkjet cartridges prior to refilling with ink. Basically we inject a little Magic Inkjet Flush directly into the dried print head which allows us to unclog them. Then we soak them overnight on Magic Pillows which gives just enough to do a PRINT TEST next day.

As some of our printers always try the alignment test here´s what we do...

1. Pull paper stack slightly away from printer, when it tries to print it thinks it is out of paper and should offer a cancel print option.

2. Alternatively if you print daily? Try leaving your printer power on... Some do alignments every time you power up... so dont switch off (they use very little power in standby.)

3. When exchanging inks like HP immediately switch off printer which cancels the print test. Then just switch on again.

4. Reinserting your printed sheets each time will save paper if not ink.

Good Luck!

Dell 948 printer- won't print in black and white


I had this problem. It's actually very easy to fix:

- Click Print -> Properties
- Go to "Advanced" tab
- "More options"
- Deselect "Use color cartridge for all black printing"
- Select "Use black cartridge to print black and white"
- Click "Ok"

You should be able to select the "Print in black and white" option now and stop all the frustration!

If you enter the config menu, you can turn off energy conserve. You enter the config menu by turning off the printer, holding the center and right arrow, and powering the printer on. Continue to hold the buttons until you see Performing self test. Then you will see config menu. If you scroll down to energy conserve and select it. You can change the option to off. This will disable power saver.
