Re: 946 AIO printer

You installed the firmware using the USB Cable, correct. The firmware you installed was R152145.exe, correct?


Disconnect your printer. Download and run this patch to completely remove the printer from your computer.


Restart your computer.


Download the proper drivers.


XP Drivers


Vista 32-bit Drivers


All other drivers



Go to device manager(right click my computer, left click properties, left click hardware, left click device manager)


Go to the USB Controller section and click the + sign.


Starting at the bottom, USB Root Hubs, and working your way to the top, USB Universal Controllers, un-install everything in that section.


Restart your computer. Windows will find everything again and correct the problem one. Please be patient. The new hardware wizard may work 3-5 minutes before it's done.


Install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect your printer(powered on)




Scanning using USB connection, open the Dell All-In-One Center, click on scanning and copying and scan from there.


Scanning wirelessly, use the scan buttons on the printer.
