Hi there

Thanks for posting your problem on fixya

the cartridge will be seen moving left and right whenever you take any print out... just open the flap you will see the cartridge.. try to pull out slowly some printers doesnt have flaps..in such cases just put your hand inside the printer and try to pull it out. Take out your cartridge and see the ink level if your has ink it means your ink supply is correct otherwise refill it

Is this solution helps you then please vote for me

Thanks
Robert

Where and How to Buy Cheap Ink

The aftermarket for printer ink can be a tricky place to shop. Third-party cartridges cost less than the manufacturers' brands--which is why people buy them. But it can be a lot harder to tell whether a third-party vendor sells high-quality ink products.
One time-tested method is to shop at an established retailer (online or brick-and-mortar) that guarantees the quality of its products. Obvious examples include office supply chains such as 123Inkjets, Cartridge World, Office Depot, Office Max, and Staples, all of which carry third-party ink cartridges.
But finding third-party ink for your specific printer model can be a challenge, particularly if your unit is very new, very old, or not very popular. Before driving around town to find the right cartridge, do a little homework online. At today's insane gas prices, you could end up spending $20 on fuel just to save $10 on an ink cartridge.
Like the online arms of other major retailers, Staples.com has an Ink & Toner Finder. Click the link for to find a decent assortment of third-party supplies for Brother, Canon, and Lexmark printers. If you find compatible ink, you can buy it online or check with your local outlet to see whether it has the product in stock.
If you're dealing with a vendor that you haven't used before, ask questions. A reputable online ink retailer will provide names and contact information for the ink manufacturers that it buys its supplies from.
When shopping for remanufactured cartridges, ask the third-party supplier how thoroughly it inspects used cartridges before refilling them. "Do they look for cracks? Do they test the electrical characteristics of the cartridge? A cartridge can look fine but have a broken electrical component, and then it won't work," says Tricia Judge of the International Imaging Technology Council. The vendor should also test the cartridge after the refill, Judge adds.
For our latest in-depth coverage of the pros and cons of printer manufacturers' inks versus third-party inks, see our feature article, "Cheap Ink: Will It Cost You?" and the related slide show, "Head-to-Head: Printer Manufacturers' Ink vs. Cheap Third-Party Ink." For additional advice on reducing the cost of running your inkjet printer, see "The Cheapskate's Guide to Printing," "Save Money on Inkjet Printer Ink," and "How to Spend Less on Printing and Get Better Results." Our digital photography expert, Dave Johnson, has written helpful articles on photo print longevity ("Digital Focus: Make Your Photo Prints Last") and printer paper ("The Paper Chase: Pick the Perfect Paper for Your Printer"). And finally an earlier three-part PC World series on the issues of counterfeit name-brand inks ("Bogus Ink Stink"), third-party ink quality("Cheap Ink Probed"), and high ink-cartridge prices ("Why Do Ink Cartridges Cost So Much?") provides valuable historical background and additional test results for various ink cartridges.

Dell 944 instruction to install new ink cartridge


Replacing Ink Cartridges

CAUTION: Before performing any of the procedures listed in this section, read and

follow the safety information in "CAUTION: SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS" on page 9.

Dell ink cartridges are only available through Dell. You can order more ink online at

www.dell.com/supplies or by phone. To order by phone, see "Ordering Supplies" on page 2.

Dell recommends Dell ink cartridges for your printer. Dell does not provide warranty coverage

for problems caused by using accessories, parts, or components not supplied by Dell.

1 Turn on your printer.

2 Lift the printer unit, and position the scanner support between the tabs to hold it open.

The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

3 Press down on the ink cartridge lever to raise each ink cartridge lid.

4 Remove the old ink cartridges.

5 Store the cartridges in an air-tight container, such as the storage unit you received with

your photo cartridge, or dispose of them properly.

6 If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the

back and bottom of each ink cartridge.

7 Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the black or photo ink cartridge is secure in the

left ink cartridge carrier, and the color ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge

carrier.

8 Snap each lid closed.

9 Lift the printer unit, and hold the scanner support up while lowering the printer unit until
it is completely closed.

Printer wont print it has a new black ink cartridge but the color inks has no more.how can i print black only.


You cannot print unless both cartridges are installed and have a decent supply of ink left in them. It doesn't matter if your printing only black and wont need to use the color cartridge. It still have to be installed with ink for your printer to work. There is no way of getting around this problem.
I wish I had better news for you.

Printer is feeding paper and ink cartridges are showing plenty of ink, but there is no ink reaching the paper. The sponge pad on the left side is sodden with ink



Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using the manufacturer’s new ink cartridges, then please contact their technical support group. Factory new cartridges usually have warranties on them.

Says ink tank level low when it is still half full.Then will say out and still lot of ink in cart left yet.


This usually happens when you are using aftermarket inks. The sensors on the cartridges are not always up to specs. The problem does not occur on OEM cartridges.
Sometimes you can remove and reseat the same cartridge and the printer will resume. If the problem persists after trying the remove and reseat procedure, the cartridge should be replaced and the defective cartridge discarded.
If you are near an office supply that rebates for old cartridges and you are reloading your own cartridges, take the old cartridge in and replace it with an OEM cartridge so the problem doesn't repeat.
Hope this helps.

Officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message


HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.
