Power Saver Dell All In One 948

Hi Hashch,

I've looked under print window as well as control panel, however there is no power option anywhere. I've even scrolled through the options on the printer itself. All it will allow me to do is delay the power saver by 240 minutes, but it will now allow it to be shut off.

I cannot install my Deskjet 840c printer to my windows 7

The Deskjet 840c driver is included in the Win7 OS. You need to use Windows Update. Connect the data cable to the computer. Windows 7 should find the driver. If it doesn't, open Windows Update and check for updates. Look under Optional Updates.

If it still doesn't properly install the printer, disconnect the USB cable and then turn the printer off and then on again. Then open the Devices and Printers window and remove the printer (right click and choose Remove device). Remove all icons for the 840c if you have multiple in the control panel. Then reboot the computer and make sure your network connection is active. Reopen the Devices and Printers window and install the printer manually. To do this: click on Add a printer, choose Add a local printer then click Use an existing port. Select LPT1: (Printer Port) in the dropdown menu and click Next. Click on the Windows Update button and wait for the updates to be completed. Choose HP as the manufacturer and the Deskjet 800 series. Now connect the USB cable between the printer and the computer. You should see the installing device driver software window. Wait until the window disappears and then click Cancel on the Add a Printer Window.

If problems persist, try a new data cable. Try directly connecting to the computer if you are using a print server or USB hub. Make sure the computer USB ports are working. The ports can be disabled for security or power savings. (Check in the Device Manager (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System > Device Manager) or from the advanced settings for the Screen Saver (right click on the desktop anywhere there are no icons or running programs, select Personalize and then click on the Screen Saver icon. then click on Change Power Settings and Change Plan Settings for the active plan).

I hope this helps.

I have a dell computer that i just had restored now my tower (hard drive) wants to turn off if i am not on it for so long

Really need to know the model for your computer. but....

Check START, CONTROL PANEL, POWER OPTIONS. Look at the power plan you have and customize it if the other aren't exactly what you want.

I leave my computer on all the time, my power options are "NEVER" for all choices. I do have a screen saver on. Pick what is right for you.

If not, need a model number. Also this was under printers?

good luck

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

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!

Printer 948 false paper jam

Tonight, I fixed my neighbor's Dell 948 printer with false paper jam.

After you lift open the top, look below the shiny bar that the Print Head slides left/right on. You'll see a row of 8 tiny rollers. In between the middle two rollers (rollers #4 and #5 from the left), look for a small plastic tab sticking up between them. Touch this tab with the tip of a ball-point pen to see if it pushes down. If it does, then push the "checkmark" button on the control panel.

That's what I did to fix my neighbor's printer.

No printer will work with my computer

I would uninstall all printer drivers, reboot and then try one at a time.

Install the driver first, then connect the printer.
