I have recently bought a v525w with the main intention of having the ability to print from iphone & ipad.
I have installed it on our local wireless network and everything prints ok from the laptop (windows 7)
When I print from the apple devices it will not recognise the printer. The wireless light is on and I have enabled appletalk from the set up menu.
Can anyone assist on this one - HELP !!!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Prior to updating the firmware, remove the Printhead from the printer following the steps in the link below.
Close the latch.
Close the printer cover after removing the Printhead.
Turn on the printer.
Press the cancel button (Red X button) on the printer Operator Panel when the status message displays “Open the printer cover to install the Printhead”.
Now, download and update the firmware of the Dell V525W printer from the link below.
Restart the printer and now the Apple iPad or iPhone will detect the printer and can easily print.
Please post back the results.
Thanks & Regards
Hi there Sudeep S,
I followed your instructions and it worked a treat. Restarted everything and both iphones and the ipad picked up the printer immediately. I had a bit extra work to do as I had already installed the ink cartridges. Otherwise perfect.
I would also like to thank you for your quick response - much appreciated.
PS : As Dell is selling this as a PC free printer and it is listed on Apples website for approved printers you might want to ship the printer out with the correct firmware !!
Worked like a charm! Thanks, now I can take full advantage of my V525w printer and print from my laptop, ipad or iphone. I'm not too tech savvy, but the instructions were clear and easy to follow
I was doing this process, and somehow my laptop froze, I did was I wasn't supposed to do, now my screen on printer is black. I'm afraid I corrupted the file. Please help. Thanks..
