My Dell AIO 962 symptoms were the same. I could print but not scan from the My Computer, Dell Photo AIO Printer 962, Scanner and Camera Wizard (or paint, etc.). I could scan from the Start, All Programs, Dell Photo AIO Printer 962, All-in-One Center application. My printer was connected via USB.Rumor has it there is a Microsoft patch for the Dell AIO 962 printer which if applied corrupts the printer drivers (never trust MS). I called the DELL hotline and after two days of being passed from one tech support to another, I got RJ; apparently the only one who actually knows the secret fix. Here's what my $60.00 got me.Do the following with the printer connected and turned on and a document in the scanner..0. Backup your system and or set a restore point.1. Go to C:\WINDOWS\twain_32\2. Rename wiatwain.ds to something like wiatwain.dsw so the system can't find the file.3. Try to scan something (it will fail).4. Rename the file back to the original name wiatwain.ds5. Go to Control Panel, System, Hardware tab, Device Manager button.6. Locate the Imaging devices entry and click on the + sign.7. Locate the Dell Photo AIO Printer 962 entry in the list.8. Right click and uninstall the Dell Photo AIO Printer 962.9. Your system should find the printer automatically, think it is a new device, and reinstall it correctly.At this point my printer started scanning just fine from the Start, All Programs, Dell Photo AIO Printer 962, All-in-One Center application, and paint, and... I hope your's does as well.Okay, The paragraph breaks are gone. Cut and paste this message and put a new line before the numbers. It will make reading the procedure much easier.
Gordo's right! Thanks so much for the tip! I was able to print & fax, but could not scan. I downloaded the drivers & updates from Dell's website, but it didn't work. I followed PuddyOne's instructions & now everything is working! Thanks again for the help!

If the printing function of your Dell Printer 962 is working properly then it is not a usb cable problem.Maybe its len which is used for scanning has gotten weak.
You have to go to the paper setup on your printer and change the size and it should work
What you do is you hit the arrows until it says scan. Press the check button. Then you should find what you want to save to it. Then press the check button and the press the start button on the wide right. If it doesn't work, ask a computer specialist to come and see if it is fully installed to your computer correctly.
I am also having trouble with my 926. It scans but doesn't print??
How do I scan with my dell photo 926 all in one printer and be able to email what I have scanned?
