Windows 7 - Dell aio 922 Printer Issue

Q: Windows 7 - Dell aio 922 Printer Issue

Hi,

I have recently upgraded my system from windows vista to windows 7. Everything seems to work fine except the printer - Dell all in one printer 922. To solve the issue, I have followed several solutions from different forums. For e.g., according to one solution (this solution seemed sensible), I have deleted the printer from my system, uninstalled all the printer driver software and have tried to use the vista 32 drivers to get my printer working. But all in vain. I have tried the process almost ten times now and I am tired. That's why I have come to this forum. Please could any one of you help me resolve this issue. Thank you in anticipation.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I had the same problem with my Dell AIO 964... Try downloading the the Patch/Upgrade .Zip file from the Dell website. When it finishes downloading open it and run the DellCleanUpUtility.exe this will delete the driver that Windows 7 automatically installed. When the Utility completes it will ask to reboot, allow it do so, then procede to install the windows vista version of your printer driver from the Dell website. Cho Yung Tea

Hello,
Just the other day my Dell 720 printer stopped working. It can turn on, and it's still listed in the printer section of the control panel. However, when I try to print a document, it just remains in the queue and nothing happens.
Does anyone know what could be wrong and any potential solutions?
Thanks in advance!
Also, it might be worth noting that I think it started happening when I tried to print something and got a message from my virus software (Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2007) asking if I'd like to approve or deny some software function, it might have said spool...and I could have sworn I hit approve, but I might have accidentally denied it. Do you know what something like this could have done, and if so, how to correct it?
Thanks again!!!

Hi, Have a Dell A940 printer am trying to fix for a friend. Have solved one issue, but it's the second issue that has me stumped. I've tried this printer on two different computers with the same results. If printing from Wordpad, Wordperfect, or Word, nothing prints. Printing from my yahoo account results in the yahoo header being printed but not the rest of the email. It also did print a .jpg graphic. So, it seems not to want to print text (unless it's associated with graphics) for some reason. Have checked the basics like margins, set up, paper, etc. And again, tried this printer with two different computers. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.

Dell Printer A940 and Vista I am using my old printer (Dell A940 All-in-One printer) with my new Vista operating system. I have downloaded all the drivers from the Dell website and still the printer will not scan. The printer works fine, but when I try to open the All-In-One center, I get a runtime error message saying the application has requested Runtime to terminate the program in an unusual way. Basically, I just want my printer to scan pictures the way it did before I got Vista operating system. Is there anything I can do??

Greetings.

Short description: I cannot print.

Long description: After installing Avast! and ZoneAlarm my computer has stopped printing. I have the Dell AIO 922 Printer and everything was working fine before this. Whenever I try to print anything it just hangs in the queue and I eventually get a Dell Error stating that the printer cannot communicate with the computer. It's interesting because it never gives an "error" in the print queue window...it just hangs on "printing" and never does anything.

I have a red error under "Application" in Event Viewer that looks like this:

A:Dell AIO 922 Printer Communication issue

Crisis Averted

Well, after some more digging I found a rather helpful troubleshooter on Dell's Support Page:

Dell Printer Troubleshooter

I'd recommend using it if you are having similar problems. Interestingly, it seems as if the uninstall was not completely successful before, even though I used Revo. I had to go into Device Manager and click on Show Hidden Devices under View and uninstall it there as well. This may or may not have been the final trick to get it to uninstall but the printer works successfully after using this step.

Also, after going through the troubleshooter above you will find the latest driver for download on one of the steps. Currently the driver is located here:

Dell AIO 922 Driver

Now, I think I actually had the latest driver...BUT after you unzip/install the driver I found an uninstall file in there located here: C:\Dell922\install\dlbtunst. This may or may not have been the final trick to get it to uninstall but the printer works successfully after using this step. Then I rebooted. [Note that when you unzip the driver it will ask you immediately if you want to start the process of installing the driver, but at this point you want to cancel out of that. You'll do that later...see below.]

Now, upon reboot I actually got the found new hardware balloon which is what you're hoping for to show that it was completely uninstalled previously. Note that during this process of finding and installing the new hard... Read more

I recently did a clean install to my Dell A920 AIO printer, using the drivers and utilities disk, to my Dell Dimension 4600 computer (see stats below). I keep this computer as a back-up.

Well everything installed and the printer showed up in all the right places (in device manager and in printers and Faxes as default printer).

Here's the problem: When I clicked on the Dell All-In-One center a window popped up that read "Preparing All-In-One center for first time use" with a circling magnifying glass. I cannot get past this and the magnifying glass will circle for hours without even eventually generating an error message.

I hope someone can help me. I already searched Dell forums every which way but loose.

A:Dell Optiplex 745 - Windows XP Pro 32-bit Dell System direct issue.

The older versions of Dell System Detect are security risks - if you're running an antivirus program, it may be flagging and intercepting the program.  At any rate, you should NOT be using Windows XP online at this point, as it has seen no security updates in almost two years - you really need to upgrade to a supported version of Windows (at this point, that's a minimum of Windows 7).

Just got windows 7 on dell 530 asprion. Did a clean download with windows 7 --had some storage memory problems--- but got that corrected . 7 works great runs nice but i am getting a problem from my dell aio 948 printer connecting to my documents i need to print. Finally got it to print after hours of tech support. Next day was printing from mail merge on works 9 problem returns and now still dont get print command connection.

As for a dell aio 948 if you have one they will give you a message in the right corner in front of your document showing you ready capacity to print using aio's ink jet system

printer prints and i get a nice copy of my document

unfortunatly when i start to print my document off of the file menu i choose print then get my preference window-- choose "ok"-- get a flash of a tiny download window -- possibley to say that the document has been seen and will be sent to the printer-- and that's the last command the computer shows -- my lower right capicity window does not show on the monitor as usual-- and no printing connection takes place

no paper goes through the printer either

sounds like a easy enough problem to fix --- print command just doesn't tell the aio that there is something ready to print--- but where do i go to fix the problem ?

Anyone know about ?

The printer is an old HP LaserJet P2015 connected to a Windows 7 Pro (32-bit) machine.  Every morning, when the user boots the computer up and logs in, that printer will show as an unknown device under Devices and Printers.  The actual printer
icon for the P2015 will be grayed out.  If you just turn the printer off and back on the unknown device goes away, and the P2015 icon will go back to ready.  I have tried multiple USB cable and ports on the computer and a powered USB hub.  I've
tried multiple drivers, and the only one that really wants to work is the actual HP driver for the P2015 (which took a while to find).  The HP universal print drivers all have their own quirks with it.  I've adjusted power setting for maximum efficiency,
ran sfc /scannow, ran chkdsk /r, and some other things that I cannot remember.  Is there anything I can try that I didn't list?

I can't seem to find anything about my specific problem. I had an HP PSC 2410 all-in-one series printer connected to a Dlink print server. The printer started making terrible noises when it started up, so I disconnected it and reconnected an old deskjet instead. I recently fixed the all-in-one (turned out i just needed to clean the scanning glass and mirrors), but the print server no longer powers up. Now here's the real issue:

I can't get the printer to install locally via USB port. I was finally able to delete the network printer (it kept coming back after reboot, offline), but I can' get Windows to auto-detect and install the drivers. I can't even download the drivers from the HP website because they aren't available (windows update only). I can't manually add the printer either, because the virtual USB port is unavailable. I'd really like to get this printer running again, especially because I brought it back from the dead and I really need to scanner. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Well after spending about 20 hours of my life on researching this problem online and trying all kinds of "fixes" I am turing to this board for help.

I have a Gateway FX 6802 - 64 bit computer running Windows 7. Brand new - purchased 2 months ago. I also have an Epson 1280 printer which I have had for years. When I initially set the computer up, I just plugged in the printer via USB and it found the drivers and worked. No issues. Epson doesn't have drivers for the 1280 for Windows 7 anyway...but I had 2 months of no issues.

A few days ago, I noticed when I went to print something from my Microsoft Home and Student Word 2007 program, it wouldn't print. It said my print spooler was not on. I researched and went through the steps to get it back on, and to clear out ther files in my system32/spool/printer folder and then turned it back on via services.msc. Here is the strange part.

I can print any Word docs that I created previosuly within the past 2 months, or docs I created prior to getthing this computer. No problem. I can print photos. I can print PDF files. The only time I run into an issue is when I go into Word 2007 to create a new doc. It won't print. It shuts the spooler off. I'll have the print spooler window open and I will watch it - once I hit the print button in a NEW document - it changes status from started to stopped.

I had a problem with my HP printer not scanning via the wireless network even thought it did in the past. I could print wirelessly. The ADD/REMOVE program wouldn't allow me uninstall it came up with an installation error when trying to do so.I then went onto a HP forum to try and get help and was directed towards deleting the HP files and downloading the HP driver from scratch. Afetr manually deleting the HP folders/files and downloading the relevant full HP driver I now get an installation error when trying to install the printer. I am now at a point that the PC doesn't even recognise the printer on the network and I can't install the driver. Is this something to do with the ADD/REMOVE program not being able to uninstall properly?
 

A:Solved: Windows XP/Printer Issue

Trying to remove a program manually is always a bad idea. You can never find everything that needs to be removed, especially in the registry. The only thing it will accomplish, is prevent further installation of the software.

If the software is still showing inside "Add or Remove Programs" chances are you might be able to remove leftovers with the free Revo Uninstaller, but I wouldn't bet on it. Still worth a try though.

I have a weird one that I am hoping someone can assist with,

Background Info ? 4 PCs and 3 Printers in office all Windows 7 ? One PC acts as Print Server and shares the TWO of the Three printers using Windows Homegroup. Third Printer is direct connected via USB to Bosses PC.

Problem ? On Bosses PC only ? All Shared Printers will just go offline. It is not a network issue or homegroup issue as she (the boss) can see other homegroup resources such as shared drive and Shared folders. It appears to happen after she prints to her USB printer then tries to go to a shared printer. (This is my guess, Not tested and verified).

Other Info ? No one else in office has this issue, Boss will not give up her USB printer(it is old but reliable for her), A restart of her machine sometimes fixes the problem but not always.

I am truly at a loss any help or work around would be appreciated.

Hello,

I have installed the updated drivers and computer recognizes it but when I direct a job to it , it just briefly turns on the receipt light then does nothing. I then have to go to the printer and cancel the print job.

Does this mean I have to abandon this jewel? (No support available form HP)

Hello,
Could someone be kind enough to help me figure out a weird problem. I am not particularly computer literate so forget my ignorance! I bought a printer HP Photosmart C3100 All-in-One series. I used it on my old computer a compaq notebook (do NOT recommend it to anyone any HP computer in that matter!) I then changed my computer for a DEll XPS M 1330 (Hrr what a jewel! a real pleasure). The only problem is that i have Windows Vista professional on it and the installation CD to install my printer on it seems to be uncompatible or something like that. I can not install it .
May be someone will know what to do. (I hope i was clear in my explaination not sure)
Thanks
Lea

Hi all!  I just signed this website and I'm so glad!!!
 
Here  is my question.  I have  an HP Pavilion dx4 Notebook and a Dell v305 inkjet printer.  When the system goes to sleep, it is forgetting the driver I've installed, and I have to keep reinstalling it!!  What am I doing wrong?  I'm using Dell's Install Utility that automatically installs and then checks that it's working.  And it appears to save said driver in Windows 7 Ultimate.  Am I supposed to be doing something else as well??  Help in Seattle!!

I have a 2 Zebra Label Printers (2 models) that are shared printers on two separate computers (both with XP) on our networked that are pushed out to all the other computers on the network via group policy on/print management on the server (Server 2003). One of these printers will push out to the Windows 7 machine but the other one will not. If you try to add it manually on the Windows 7 machine the printer is listed as one of the network printers however it will error, saying it cannot make a connection with an error code of 0x0000007a. Looking in Print Management on the server the printer that does push out is on the list of printers and the that does not push out is not, even though it is listed in the list of printers under printers and faxes. This printer has added to deploy under group policy though and still does not push out to the Windows 7 machines but will to all our XP machines. Anyone have a solution on how to remedy the problem?

A:[SOLVED] Windows 7 & Network Printer Issue

Are you specifically using a driver designed for Windows 7 on the Win7 machines? By default, the print server will push out the driver installed to the client when first connected, so if the driver being used is for XP or 2003, it may not work properly under Win7. That error message means "ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER", which would indicate a driver issue indeed.

Hi all,
Hoping someone out there may be able to help with the following.

I have a Canon MG8250 all in one printer/scanner. All was fine on Windows 8, but then upgraded to 8.1 a couple of weeks ago. Just got round to using the printer and scanner and the printer wouldn't work (scanner was fine). Uninstalled MP drivers and reinstalled from Canon site and all seemed fine with the printing. Alas the scanner now would not work. Did the same, uninstalled MP Navigator Ex and reinstalled from Canon site, but no fix this time. PC says "Cannot start MP Navigator Ex" and printer says "Set PC to start scanning".

Anybody know how to fix?

Thanks,
Peter

I got a new laptop loaded with seven. I have an older HP7150. New pc runs 64 bit, printer 32. When I plugged in printer, it loaded "sometype" of driver that said it would work. Well, it sorta does and don't and for the most part, it jams up, feeds through unprinted paper and etc. Upon further reading I found where 32 bit devices do not work with 64. So, I called HP and they provided a little free help and I took it, up to the point where they wanted $$ for there help. So, what I did find out that by going to command prompt and typing driverquery that I do not have any type of 7150 driver. By going to the HP does not offer a 64 bit driver for seven, only for vista. Hmm, thought I'd give the vista driver a whirl...and this PC is so smart, in will not unload the driver. It just comes up with a message and says something like..."it's been determined that the driver you are already using, is better than the one that you want to use". Hmm, so can somebody please tell me, where I can find an actual driver that will work, that I can download to say, my thumb drive, that I can actually locate and installed in the printer properties? Thank you

Hey,
During the phase of printer installation when the software asks to plug in the printer, windows popped up and asked it I wanted it to find software for the printer. I accidentally clicked the option where windows wouldn't bother with the printer (I forget how it was phrased exactly), and now the actual installation software wont detect the printer.

Anyone have any idea how I can make windows refind the printer?

I'm running Vista 64-bit. Thanks much!
 

A:Issue with installing printer - accidentally set windows to not detect it

Check Device Manager (Start->Run-> Devmgmt.msc) for any yellow queried devices (ie your printer specifically)
Then right click on it and select remove (it may say Delete or Uninstall)
Then restart, and try installing again

A:Brother printer not printing wifi - windows 10 issue??

Hi and welcome!
I found these steps from Brother's support section of their website.

1. Turn off your Brother machine. Wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.
Wait at least three minutes for the machine to join the network.
If the issue continues, go to STEP 2.

2. Use the Network Connection Repair Tool to fix the Brother machine's network settings. It will assign the correct IP address and the Subnet Mask.
> Click here to see how to use the Network Connection Repair Tool
If the issue continues, go to STEP 3.

3. Check your machine's wireless status by printing the WLAN report.
> Click here to check the wireless status on the WLAN report.

If your WLAN report is stating "Connection OK", although you can not print, refer to "Check the wireless status on the WLAN report" and check "Connection: OK"

I have a Del 1600N Multi function printer that has been in use (successfully) for about two years on my home network. The printer has a built in NIC and is connected via a dedicated 10BaseT line to my network. This printer was working just FINE until I decided to use it as a fax. Some how during that process I must have cleared the network configuration and it stopped being visible on my network.

After some investigation into this I was able to get it back on the network my manually assigning it an IP address. Using the supplied installation DVD, I was able to install the printer onto my two desktop computers (running XP Pro 32 bit) and it works just as well as before.

The problem occurs with my wife's Dell laptop. Before the great "fax fiasco" (as I like to call my stupid attempt to use this printer as a fax machine), the laptop was able to find and print to this printer with very little problems. Now, not so much!

When I went to re-install this printer the first time I made sure that the Dell Printer software was uninstalled (via Control Panel--Uninstall Programs). The first attempt seemed to be going fine. The software detected the printer on the network and it looked like a successful install. However, the test page did not print out! I checked in the "Printer Properties" to make sure that the printer was on line and sure enough, it was. But there was a troubleshooting alert that told me the document didn't print. After several ho... Read more

A:Dell 1600n Printer not showing up in Printer window

Well, I fixed it.

part of the problem is that the laptop in question has Windows 7 Home Edition. This version of Windows 7 is missing several of the administrative tools that come with Windows 7 Pro. So there is no way to access the PrintManagement.Msc to locate and delete the printer drivers that were not deleted by the Uninstall.

For this you need to first make sure you uninstalled the software, them to need to open Microsoft Management Console (MMC). Just locate the "Run" dialog box and type in "MMC". Another dialog box will show up. From the listing, locate the drivers you want to delete. There are two options. But I used the one that saws delete drivers and software.

Once they were gone I downloaded the latest 64bit drivers from Dell and then installed them. It worked like a charm.

Solved issue about sharp AR M-236 in Windows 8. I've been trying to connect to a shared printer on an OS running on Windows XP. No drivers were given for Winows 8. The first thing to do is disabling driver signature in Windows 8 that is given as default:
Disable Driver Signature Verification

Then you have to install the driver (depending on 64-bit or 32-bit architecture):
http://www.tradenet.sharp.co.uk/file.../ARM236664.exe
http://www.tradenet.sharp.co.uk/file.../ARM236615.exe

During installation you will be asked to specify whether the printer is shared or directly connected. Choose shared and then specify the canonical windows path, for example:
\\John\SHARPAR-236

where John is the computer where the copier Sharp Ar-m236 is installed and working...

Hope it helps
