Disconnect the printer. Go into Add/Remove programs. Remove all AIO942 listings. Reboot the PC. Load the AIO942 drivers. Reboot the PC. Connect the printer. Does it print?
Hey guys and gals!
Someone out there may have run into this and figured it out! I hope:)
I have a Dell Dimension 2400 increased mem to 766Mb running XP Home SP3. Wireless network with a Latitude and the Dell AIO942 printer.
Everything was running fine, being able to print from either computer. The other day I downloaded an update to Windows Live and it did not take. Used the restore and everything was fine till I went to print something. Seems the computer could not connect to the printer. Tried everything I could...reinstalled drivers (many times) restarted everything...shutoff and disconnected printer and installed drivers again to no avail. Read everything Dell had to offer and still no luck. By the way,I did run out of black ink during or just before this fiasco and refilled it then the printer could not recognize the cartridge. Replaced it with a refilled photo cartridge and it is recognized but both the photo and color register as almost empty.
The printer does still work as a stand alone.
Anyone have any clues as to where I screwed up? I'm sure it was something such as in the settings but I've no clue.
I'd be indebted to anyone that could give me some direction as to how to go about fixing my mess!!
