To solve the printing problem..

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

From what you describe the printer is not installed correctly. I would try uninstalling everything associated with this device, unplugging it and then retry the installation process again. I don't know if the instructions are clear but you should not connect the USB cable to the printer until after the software is installed or when prompted by the software wizard.

Apart from using the Add/remove feature in the Control Panels, you can use an uninstaller program.

The easiest fix might be to uninstall and reinstall it, if you have the cd....
Otherwise, you can download one from Dell online by clicking here

Do you have the user's guide? That usually has all the information you need to install and set up the unit. If you don't, you can always go to the website and download a copy. Then follow the instructions.

There is a thin plastic strip that has small lines on it that stretches across the inside of the printer and fits trough the back of the print head. It is not in the slot of the print head or missing. I fixed my banging Dell 810 printer by putting it back in. I had no idea what it was at first. That's all I can tell ya.

First, check to see that you can make a copy. If you cannot you have a physical problem with the unit that we will have to address. If you can make a copy: Disconnect the printer from the computer Go to the Control Panel/Add Remove programs Remove the Dell printer program Go to the Control Panel/Printer and Faxes Click on File come down to Server Properties In the box that pops up go to Drivers Click on the Dell printer - click on REMOVE Reboot your computer Re-install the printer driver from the CD - It will let you know when it wants you to reconnect the printer. If that does not take care of it, PLEASE let me know before you rate this solution. Ed
