Steps to fix the problem when Dell E515dw Can print but Can't Scan -

  1. Take a USB power cable and then connect your Dell printer to the computer. After this, you have to install the drivers that are included in the Dell product because without installing the latest drivers your computer will not import the scan pictures to the internal memory.
  2. To fix the problem, start your Dell printer and then place the image on the scanner glass. Confirm that image is positioned on the corner side where the green arrow indicates the right posture. Then close the scanner glass and save the image on your operating system.
  3. In the next step, go to Start button and then choose All Programs> Accessories> Scanner & Camera Wizard.
    If you are using Windows then there exists a pre-installed application. Then select the Scan feature and then choose Dell E515dw printer icon. After this, click on Scan and now your printer will scan the image and displays the digital version on computer’s screen.
  4. Then click on File that is appearing in the upper left-hand side of the desktop screen and then clicks on Save. Now a save window will appear on your system’s screen. Just give a unique name to your image, choose a location and finally click on Save button.

Now scanned image will save on your system, print it or upload on Facebook without any hassle.

Hope, these steps will help you to resolve Dell Printer’s issues and you can once again enjoy hassle-free printing with your Dell printer.
