Hi, if you have the users manual (given that it has worked properly in the past) my suggestion would be to disconnect the printer from the computer/uninstall the current software/then with your manual in hand follow the guidance PRECISELY to reinstall the printer. If you do not have the manual it can be obtained (free) from the Dell site. Just before doing the uninstall/reinstall if you haven't already done so you might go to the Dell download site and install the latest drivers for the printer from there. Hope this helps Thanks Dennis
Check if the printer can still be detected in your control panel (control panel -> printers). Check when you point at it if it says "ready". If it is not, inspect the cables and try a different port on you computer. If it says ready and you still could not print, see if uninstalling it and reinstalling it works. If that does not solve it, have it tested on another computer. Should it still not work, your printer may have gone bad.
Uninstall the printer software, then uninstall the printer itself. then reinstall the software drivers first , then the software.
Remember most USB printers need the drivers and software installed BEFORE you connect them to the USB port on the computer.
You also might look in the device manager for any yellow ! or ? in the USB section. This would indicate a USB driver issue. Post again if you need more help...
Normally to fix a printer that is printing gibberish, uninstalling and reinstalling the print drivers will fix this issue. Another thing that can contribute to gibberish print is using a USB cable that is too long.
With this particular problem (prints Zen), one solve is to uninstall any Dell toner management software. This is particularly true if you are running Vista and hooked up by USB. To uninstall the toner management software (Vista OS), go to control panel>programs>programs and feature>uninstall a program. From this list choose Dell software, choose a customized uninstall, and then choose anything that has to do with Dell toner management.
From the following link download the Dell printer uninstaller http://tinyurl.com/29z5yr R166248.zip. extract the file and Run the wizard. Make sure that the printer is not plugged in when the wizard is run.
Restart your computer, Install the latest drivers .
If you are not able to install the drivers or your printer is stilll not printing its time to reinstall windows.
