Did you follow dells installation instructions to the T. You have to install drivers First then printer. I had a similar problem on same printer. Uninstalled everything and reinstalled works fine now.

Ya, its being weird right now, It will let me scan but it won't find a printer. Mind you, this is an ALL-IN-ONE printer/scanner.
