Dell 3510 printer issue

Q: Dell 3510 printer issue

My dad was putting some paper into his printer and had apparently put the paper in too far. When he tried to print something it jammed up and the printer had abruptly shut off. I have tried leaving it unplugged for a while and plugging it back in however, the printer WILL NOT turn back on at all.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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 hardware it couldn't find some files. That's to be expected because you currently have no drivers installed, etc. However, after that process completes and it says that errors were encountered during the installation and some of your new hardware may not work (that's okay at this point), then you want to install the driver you downloaded (before you should have only used the uninstaller that came with it). At that point the software successfully installed and the printer started working again. [Note that the only way I could actually get the installer to run was to re-unzip the downloaded file. I just deleted the old unzipped files and re-unzipped it. This is the step that you previously canceled out of before...see above.]

Finally, when installing the driver I was asked whether or not I wanted the printer to be able to be used by the network. I clicked YES for this even though this is a standalone computer/printer. I'm not sure if saying no to this would have affected the results, but it may have. Perhaps this was necessary for ZoneAlarm to configure things correctly? I'm not sure, but it worked. Interestingly, I may NOT have done this when I first installed the driver originally.

Again, I'm not entirely sure which of these new steps solved the problem, but I'm working on someone else's machine and don't have time to go back and isolate the exact solution. At least this gives you some more things to try if you have this similar issue.

Hope this helps someone!

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.


A:Windows 7 - Dell aio 922 Printer Issue

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

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??

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.

Normally I purchase the dell series 9, as dell brand but they were sold out at most places. So I purchased black and color ink from officemax for my dell printer which said it was for series 9 and the type of printer I own. It's the right series and numbers. I placed the ink in the printer like I normally do and my printer tells me there is no ink. I've read online elsewhere that the chip on the cartridge doesn't match the printer. If that's so then officemax shouldn't be allowed to sell dell replacement cartridge. But is there anyway I can fix this?

A:Dell Photo 926 Printer / OfficeMax Dell series 9 replacement

If it still prints just ignore it, if not then check to se if the metal is the same on the back of the cartridge and in the printer, if it is then you have a faulty cartridge, if not then the cartridge is incompatible.

Hi all,
I recently purchased a Dell Precision 3510 with an I7 6700HQ CPU. My problem is that the CPU seems to be stuck at 0.75 Ghz and it doesn't seem to go over 30% load. When reaches 30 % in load (and there it stays) might go up to 0.78 Ghz, but that's not happening every time.Did a few tests while playing a few games, on battery and while charging, and on different power plans: Dell and performance. Did not activate the profiles provided by Dell regarding the power optimization.The only time I managed to get it over 30% in load, happened when I disabled the Intel Speedstep feature from Bios. It was running indeed at 2.6 Ghz, but everything seemed to be..chaotically. 
I'm not sure if this is the way it should be. Does anyone else have this problem?

I know Dell has an imaging solution, but it doesn't work for our needs, as we need a sector based solution. Here is my problem:
In order for ghost to recognize the drive, I had to change the boot sequence from UEFI to Legacy.
I've had to do that on Lenovo's, as well as a few other tweaks, and then booting to ghost with an -ib or -id switch (depending on the Lenovo model). After I create or restore an image, I have to change the boot sequence back to UEFI after the image was created/restored. Doing that works perfectly on the Lenovo ... but not on the Dell. 
Does anyone know what I need to do use ghostcast on a Dell Precision 3510?

First thing to verify with your company is that they're OK with you doing this - it will end your warranty.
You'll need at least the screen and wiring harness (the wiring harness is usually not interchangeable between screen resolutions).

My Precision 3510 will not sleep or hibernate regardless of how I attempt it.  If I click start, power, sleep, it just powers off.  I've set the Lid Close mode to sleep when on battery and it just powers off.  I've set it to go to sleep after 20 minutes when on batter, and it just powers off.  I've looked at the BIOs and sleep mode, or whatever it's called, is enabled.  I've run throught the FN diagnostics and they show no issues.  This is running Windows 10 that is fully up to date on patches, and the firmware/BIOS on the laptop is completely up to date.

I have a Precision 15 3000 Series (3510) on order, and I have a question regarding the compatible memory modules for this system. May be a silly question but better to be safe than sorry...
The online manual states that the maximum memory module size is 8 GB, but there were options when ordering the laptop to buy it with 16 GB modules. I presume that the manual is outdated as surely all of the options on offer will be compatible, but can someone confirm this? Can the laptop actually take 16 GB memory modules?
Note that I didn't order any 16GB modules, just thinking about future upgrades.

I'm not getting full speed from Samsung SM951 NVMe 512GB drive,  while other reported almost double the speed I'm getting from Crystal mark.
I tried everything from using latest Samsung drivers, Microsoft NVMe drivers, updated the bios and disabled "windows write-cache" with no change whatsoever to the numbers.
I'm suspecting the Firmware used by dell cap the drive to reduce the TDP, but getting half the speed is very disappointing.

You should first try a second hard drive with a full install. That usually fixes the problems with the 1100, 1150, 5100m, 5150, and 5160 which all seem to have the same problems.
Remember that this optical drive is fragile, and has a history of failure. New models are available with DVD RW that are quite reliable, on eBay. They range from $72 to $85 to $89 to $95. If you are good with tools, you can get the generic one, then revise the hardware to make everything fit just fine.

Hello all,

I have a minor issue. I have a Dell V305 All-In-One printer. I've had it for several years. I recently purchased an Epson wireless printer which works fine. Just yesterday, right before getting rid of the Dell printer, I noticed on the screen saying Network Detected., and a light right above it showed Wi-Fi! So now I have two wireless printers, and 3 PCs a part of my network. The only problem is I don't know how to get the Dell printer to connect to the network. I've tried the support site but to no avail. Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this issue or redirect me to a website, in which I can troubleshoot the issue?

A:Dell All in One Printer

I have moved to networking
have you been using the dell on the wireless OK

little confused , you say
right before getting rid of the Dell printerClick to expand...

there should be a set-up on the printer to connect to the wireless network and enter your password for the wireless signal
often when you install the printer - you are asked if its networked or USB

I will have a look for the manual online

user manual is here

there is a setup on the printer for networking
It maybe possible to setup via that option

Otherwise follow the network setup in the manual - which does require the printer to be connected by USB cable first

I have been having this problem for months now, I know others have to by viewing postings on other forums. I switch from windows xp to windows vista ultimate. Since than when I turn my computer on in the morning, in order to use the printer I have to uninstall and reinstall. The printer is compatible with windows vista. And I installed all the latest updates from Dell so that the printer can suppossedly work with windows vista.

I have done a ton of other things that I viewed on forums, and nothing helps. As long as I don't turn the computer off after uninstalling and reinstalling it works. Once I turn the computer off, I think what is happening is that it goes back to win-xp.

Help Me Please/I'm ready to throw this printer out, but I know there is nothing wrong with the printer. Thanks!

Sorry to say but this is any PC company they really only support individual components and they won't walk you through setup things unless its part of a problem.
When you say you have the printer working with you desktop do you mean its already working wirelessly or do you just have it hooked up with a USB connection?

A:Dell Printer Ink Alternatives

"good quality" and "alternatives" are mutually exclusive really. It takes years for the alterrnative makers to reproduce the original ink properly, so unless your Dell printer is from 2000-2002 (that is impossible too), then there is no good quality alternative ink.

Dell printers are really Lexmarks and I have heard that you can modify Lexmark cartridges to work in Dells.

Got 3 different black cartridges from outside vendor, all said "low ink" when installed. I've used the ink vendor for years on another printer, they were reliable. Have sent for Dell cartridge in black, probably solve the problem. My guess is Dell has this operation gimmicked so only their cartridges show proper operation.

A:Dell Printer Ink Cartridges

The problem with using Lexmark printer inks, is knowing exactly which printer cartridge would fit your Dell. Doing this can also render your printer junk, as in it not printing. If you are not worried about using off brand inks, check through Google for inks that aren't Dell branded but are equivalent.

Hi Fabio and welcome to the forum!

I've checked the downloads available for your printer in Dell support and it shows 4 available vista downloads, I'd suggest to give those a spin, the drivers and the patch.

Tip: After trying to install the drivers normally and it still fails, you could try installing them in Vista compatibility mode.

I'm new to the forum, so be gentle.

I found an ink refill kit (never been a fan, but thought I'd give 'em another go after the last purchase of about 10 years ago) at Costco for $20. In that I hate spending $34 for the Dell cartridges, figured to give it a try.

All works beautifully except that, upon refilling the cartridges, the printer doesn't relay to my Dell PC that it's got a full cartridge. I'm guessing the "reset" function is somewhere in the system settings, but can't find it.

Does anyone know how to reset the "new ink cartridge" on this thing? I love the computers (I've got 4 Dell PC's and 2 of their Inspiron laptops), but their proprietary B/S is a complete scam.

A:Dell 964 Printer refills

You will always have trouble unless you use the official Dell ink cartridges sold by Dell. They use some tricks, including possible chemical differences to make it impossible to comfortably use these refills you have made.
Of course it is a scam. When a heavy user has a Dell printer, he can easily spend $2000 in ink before the printer fails.
The Dell printer is merely a LexMark printer with a special ink cartridge that requires you to buy from Dell.
Give away the printer, and buy a Canon, HP, Samsung, Fujitsu, or Brother if you want fairness... but do not get an all in one.

Hello Dorothy,
Here is the problem. You plugged the printer in without first installing the USB drivers and program. get all the Vista updates especially .net framework and Java.
copy and paste the links beginning with HTTP
Unplug the printer and uninstall the printer drivers by running this patch:

Reboot your computer to complete the uninstallation Procedure
Without plugging in the printer, install the drivers, they can be found here:

Forget about Dell printers, they are cheap heaps of crap, that EAT ink.
Their junk is made by Lexmark (owned by Dell), which sells under its own name as well.
If you want a nice all-in-one, look at these models of Canon:

When buying a unit like this, most people overlook the cost of ink (horrendously expensive from Dell/Lexmark).
Many HP and Dell/Lexmark units come with 1 black and 1 multi-colour cartridge. You need to look for individual colour cartridges, and also check the price of these cartridges.
In this respect it's very hard to beat the Canon prices.

This may be in the wrong thread so feel free to move it.
I have a Dell A920 printer. When I go to print there are white lines through the text and when trying to print thin black text a yellow line prints instead. I thought it was that my ink cartridge was messed up so I got two new ones( black and color) and I keep having the same problem. Ive done all the troubleshoot cartridge things the printer tells you to do so I'm not sure if its the printer itself thats the problem

Either the printer electronics or the print head is faulty, in my view.

You could eliminate the printer driver software on the PC by doing a printer self test (the manual will tell what buttons to press)

I'm having trouble finding a Win7 driver for this printer, the printer is about 6yrs old and the latest driver I can find is the Dell 21/08/2006 and this doesn't seem to work. I can see the printer listed in Devices and Printers, but it cannot print a test page or anything else. Any help would be appreciated. I have tried the usuall unplug and replug, restart etc, have tried reinstalling the driver but to no avail, even tho it says the device installed correctly. Operatiing system is Win7 Premium X64.

Here you go: Drivers and Downloads

Those are the 64-bit Vista drivers, but they should work for Win7 too.

Good luck!

I have a second hand Dell AIO Printer A940. I installed it with the cd that came with it. The scanner does not work. When trouble shooting it said to go to the AIO Printer Center that I do not have. How do I find just that soft ware to install?

Here is the Dell support and software site for the Dell A940 All-In-One.

Are you using Windows 2000, XP, or Vista? That unit appears to be 6+ years old and was designed for Windows 2000 and XP.
