Yes, If it is connected to a computer on your home network, right click the printer, setup sharing. For example, if you have a laptop on the same home network, Add a network printer to the laptop and print wirelessly without a wireless printer.

The hinge underneath could be broken the only way to fix this is to remove the plastic hinge.. You will need to unplug the printer and examine it, the broken hinge is likely to be impeding the lid from closing,

The only things I can think of besides a mechanical failure is that somehow your brightness and contrast settings got messed up or your scan area has been reduced to a black area of the picture. What size are the resulting files that come out all black?

Try going to the dell website and doing the automatic driver instilation/ auto installer. This may help.

Here are some useful steps you can try:

try to power cycle the printer for about 2 mins. then try a test print with just single paper

Make sure that the paper is aligned properly.

You can also check if there's any foreign object stuck inside the printer

If you are able to reach the paper roller on the printer, try cleaning it.

Lastly turn off you printer, try to lift your printer up, put it in an upside down position
then shake it from left to right for about a min. then turn the printer on again
try a test print.

If none of this steps resolved the problem
then the issue is with the printer itself.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to FixYa.

The text size of your printed document depends on what application you use to create/open/edit the document. Let's say you are using the popular Microsoft Word, all you have to do is:
  • highlight the text(s)
  • right click on the highlighted text
  • select FONT
  • a dialog box will come up where you have the option to modify the text size

Keep me posted.

There is no replacement part available from Dell. Temporary fix is removing the hinge spring under the small concave white plastic piece (you can remove that also) allows the cover to close. The nub under the cover has to press a "lid closed" switch which is not possible if the lid hinge is broken.
