Just make sure the printer is on when you lifted up the top cover for the ink cartridge holder to move to the right side.

You may also try this, try copying a blank paper, look inside the printer when you see the ink cartridges move in the side, disconnect immediately the power cord at the back of the printer. Now lift up the top cover and replace the ink cartridge.

Dell printer model# A940 50c error


Test your cartridges.

Remove the color ink cartridge then lower the cover of your printer. If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new one (or return the new one). Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge then lower the cover. If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new color cartridge.
Note: My manual indicated that the printer might have detected a short circuit in a cartridge. I returned a month old black cartridge got a new one and my printer is working fine now. Good luck.
