Problems with a Dell V105.

I've had this problem with my Dell V105 lately.

Before, it would print my pictures at a decent quality in both grayscale and colour. Then, I ran into this problem in which, for some reason, the black ink cartridge wasn't being recognized. I switched it out, and it seems to work sometimes.

However, now, I'm finding the colour doesn't work at all. Anything with colour in it will cut off half way through the print or sometimes even at the beginning. I've tried aligning the cartridges many times, as well as cleaning them and even changing them out. Nothing seems to want to do the trick. I'm starting to think it's a problem with the actual jet, or maybe even just a really strange alignment issue? I'm unsure. If there is anyone out there that might have suggestions, please feel free to let me know. Unfortunately my latest print jobs were urgent, and now I can't deliver.

Hello!

Thank you very much. I'm afraid none of these steps worked, though. I still have the same result as I did before. I'm just really hoping it's not broken!

Re: Problems with a Dell V105.

Hi Tegami,

Have you checked the printer with different cartridge. If the issue still occurs with replacing the cartridge as well then it might be an issue with the print head.

Unfortunately print head is not a separate part in this printer so if it goes faulty complete printer needs to be replaced for the same.

Please let us know this information so we can advise you further.

Re: Problems with a Dell V105.

I have issue with V105 scanner.  the Dell V105 software "scan" button never works.  I keep clicking it, and nothing.  So, I tried the Scan button on the printer case, again, nothing.  Any ideas what might cause the scanner to never work?  Running WIN XP 32-bit SP3.

Re: Problems with a Dell V105.

Hi Sandeep;  I was able to download the software and follow the installation.  This did not resolve my scanning issues.  The software scan function hangs and well as the Scan button on top of the printer.  Pressing it, open the Dell V105 software and hangs on scan screen.  Now, I lost on what ideas you have next to solve scan issues?

thanks

Dell_user_XPS8500,

 

Do you have the OCR Program installed?

 

Start, all programs, ABBYY FineReader 6.0 Sprint, ABBYY FineReader 6.0 Sprint

 

Do you have the printer disk?

 

What virus program and firewall are you using?
