20 Most Recent Dell 922 All-In-One InkJet Printer - Page 5 Questions & Answers

A couple of things to consider:
Have you install the printer in one of the computer correctly?
Are you sharing that computer on your network?
Are you sure the two computers are connected? (can you see the shared folders of each other?)

If not, then you must do that before being able to print.
If you did, then:
Did you ADD the shared printer from one computer to the other?
If you did,
Have you select that shared printer as your default printer?

After you check all this points, you must be able to print from either one.
Good luck

Check the Dell support site; you may need a new driver. Most companies do support their products with updated drivers for several years after production has ended.

Its usually better not fill up your cartridges completely ti the brim. About 3 - 4 ml at a time should do. Or observe the body of the cartridge for any volume indicated on it. If it is 4ml you may put in about 3 ml etc.

Good luck & God bless!

where does the alignment tape go? in the dell all in one 922 ,can't seem to find where to connect

Dell 922... | Answered on Oct 16, 2010

Howdy there! It sounds to me that the alligning tape has broke. Is there any way that this printer is older? Maybe not used for a spell? If it is older then it could have dried up and the line will crack and eventually break..... If this is the case, unfortunately, you need to replace the printer as the repair is just about the same cost.... Guy

Access the manufacturer's web-site for your Photo All-In-One:


and look at the pull-down which lists the supported Operating Systems.

If Windows 7 is not listed, then "experiment" by trying the Windows Vista device-driver.

You may need to align ink cartridges when characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin, or when vertical or straight lines appear wavy.

Ink Cartridge Maintenance

To align the ink cartridges:
1 Load plain paper.

2 Click Start?Programs or All Programs?Dell Printers?Dell Photo AIO Printer 922?Dell Printer Solution Center.

3 Click the Maintenance tab

4 Click Align to fix blurry edges.

5 Click Print.

The ink cartridges align when the page prints.

If you have already tried the above, you may need to do this part:

To clean the ink cartridge nozzles:

1 Load plain paper.

2 Click Start?Programs or All Programs?Dell Printers?Dell Photo AIO Printer 922?Dell Printer Solution Center.

3 Click the Maintenance tab.

4 Click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.

5 Click Print.

When the page prints it forces ink through the clogged nozzles to clean them.

6 Print your document again to verify the improved print quality.

7 If you are not satisfied with the print quality, wipe the ink cartridge nozzles with a q-tip, and then print your document again.

If neither of these fix it, then you have a larger hardware problem going on here.... You will either need to contact Dell about repairs / replacement (I recommend you do this if it's still within the warranty period, if you are unsure please call them and find out at 1-800-624-9897)

If it is definitely out of warranty, and neither of those fix it, I would suggest an inexpensive replacement printer (that is better actually anyways) such as:

If the power is completely missing then the source inside it has failed - normal for such an old printer, they tend to fail after 5 years. The printer is fixable, a good electronics repairman would fix it in less than an hour. But, with the same money you would give him to fix your present printer you could buy a brand new one with better characteristics.
Time for a new one.

Ok, this is a problem with that model printer.
Right click start, left click explore, click the + sign on the program files folder. Look for the Dell Printer 922 folder and click on it. Look in the folder for dlbtjswx.exe in the folder and double click on it. This should install it, if it didn't install. If that doesn't work, then try re-installing the printer following the instructions below.

Disconnect your printer. Download and run this patch (a MUST with Vista machines) to completely remove the printer from your computer.

Restart your computer.

Download the proper drivers

XP Drivers

Vista 32-bit Drivers
Install the proper drivers. You'll be prompted when to connect your printer.

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.

You need to install the program from the CD that came with the printer OR download the software from dells website and install it.

Even thought its a dell machine and a dell printer, the drivers still need to be installed for it to work.

if you don't have the cd you can obtain the program from http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/

This is a software problem please uninstall and reinstall the printer software to resolve the issue.

Dell 922... | Answered on Aug 21, 2010

I am having exactly the same problem. I was told to uninstall the printer and reinstall it, following instructions on the computer. But at the end of downloading the reinstall, it tells me to put in the cd that came with the printer to finish. I do not have the cd, so I would like to know how to get one?

Dell 922... | Answered on Aug 21, 2010

Change the power cord and the power adapter. It should work perfectly. Cheers
