The lid (the top few inches) is supposed to lift up. It might be a little stuck. It's hinged at the back like the scanner cover.

You can download a manual at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/a940/a940en1.pdf

Check pages 39 and 40 for replacing ink cartridges.

Print problems with A940 dell printer


The print-head pulls ink from the ink-cartridge, and sprays it onto the paper, unless the print-head has become "clogged".

Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle, to try to unclog it.

Try find another printer(same model- says printer B)...take printer head from printer B to your printer(says printer A),use your ink cartridge and test your printing....if all color seen on paper, then the problem is your printer head, to make sure is it true or not, use printer head from printer A into printer B.see the result...

My Dell A940 is not printing with black ink.


how long have the cartridges sat? I've noticed after about a week, that dell ink clogs up. Also, Lexmark makes most Dell printers. In my time as a cartridge refiller, we blow through dells and lexmarks and when they **** out, usually it acts like it prints, but nothing comes out printed, only blank pages

What to do now....


I've had that problem. There's something wrong with that particular model in terms of the black ink slot. My recommendation would be to upgrade to regular printer or HP All-in-One and keep the A940 strictly as a scanner.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

Dell A940 smeared printing


Our Dell AIO A940 stopped printing black ink (it went throught the motions but he paper came out blank). Finally got it to print by selecting:

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY

Maybe it will work for you! Good luck!

Dell A940....remanufatured ink cartrideges


Hi There,
I refuse to pay Dell prices for ink and have used branded Lexmark cartridges for aroud 5 years in my A940 with absolutely no problems (with a very simple modification - see below!).
The Dell A940 can use Lexmark type 82(black) and type 83(colour) which are marketed for the Lexmark X5100, X6100, Z55 and Z65 series of printers.
NOTE: the cartridges have a slightly different shape 'key' on the top. The cartridge retaining clips in the printer each have a plastic pin near the back on the left side, which locates on a Dell cart but not a Lexmark one. Simply lift the retaining clip right up, and cut the pin short with wire cutters. They have no other function, and you will then be able to use either brand of cartridge in your printer completely hassle free.

I hope this helps!
