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.

just make sure the printer driver is installed: start--> printers (choose add if not listed)

Wayne I would disconnect Printer combo remove all drivers and download the new ones from dell. Install all drivers before hooking up Printer.

If he had to reinstall, why was this not the accepted solution...misleading!!!
