Scanning problem with A940 AIO Dell printer/scanner

    Hi there, just found this solution to work perfectly. i just freaked out for a moment with the same problem. Use this or just type fax and scan in your help function. Hope this helps!

    Before you begin, make sure that you've installed your scanner on the computer and that the scanner is turned on.
  1. Windows Photo Gallery.
  2. Click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
  3. In the Import Pictures and Videos window, click the scanner that you want to use, and then click Import.
  4. In the New Scan dialog box, click the Profile list, and then click Photo. The default settings for scanning a picture are automatically displayed.
  5. If you're using a scanner with a document feeder, click the Paper size list, and then click the size of the picture that you've placed on the scanner or click the size that most closely matches the picture.
  6. Click the Color format list, and then click the color format that you want the scanned file to display.
  7. Click the File type list, and then click the file type that you want to use to save the scanned file.
  8. Click the Resolution (DPI) list, and then click the resolution, in dots per inch, that you want to use.
  9. Adjust the brightness and contrast settings or type the values that you want to use.
  10. To see how the picture will appear when it is scanned, click Preview. If needed, modify the scan settings, and then preview the picture again. Repeat these steps until you're satisfied with the preview results. Some scanners might require you to place the picture in the document feeder each time that you scan.
  11. Click Scan. When the scan is complete, Windows Photo Gallery prompts you to tag the picture so that it's easier to organize or find later.
  12. In the Tag these pictures (optional) list, type a tag name, and then click Import. Windows Photo Gallery displays the picture so you can view, fix, or organize it.

DEll A940 won't print text or graphics

First, use the menu on the printer or the program for the printer on your pc to clean the print heads. May also have other options to repair such problems. If this does not work, uninstall the driver and go to Dell.com and click on their support page. Follow the instructions on that page (will ask for service tag) and download the newest driver. Install the driver and test the printer. Do not forget to make it the default printer.

If none of these options work, check if your still under warranty and contact dell. Otherwise, you need to send it in for repairs...but most likely, it is more cost effective to buy a new one. Your choice.

Error message 50c on printer

I had the same error message 50c and "color Ink low". I knew that I still had Black Ink, and that is what I just needed for the moment, so I removed the color Ink cartridge and it started working. You'll get a message 'print cartridge missing' but just press continue.
Hope this helps,
