I purchased a photo print cartridge 31 to replace my color cartridge in my printer. When I put it in it said 'right cartridge incorrect". My original color cartridge just says " color cartridge 29". What is the problem?

Could be that cartridge 31 is not compatible with your particular model. Please read the manual for a list of compatible cartridges. If it is compatible with your model, ensure that you have removed the backing plastic from the print head and fitted it properly into the slot.

Dell v305 printer allignment problem


Hello Michelle,

You are using Dell Series 9 ink cartridges, correct?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 9 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 9 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)
photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

It's possible to get a Dell Series 9 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Bhautesh,

There are many videos on you tube to clean the cartridges. They are pretty good. One additional suggestion remove all cartridges and use any good contact cleaner to wipe the contacts on all the cartridges well. Your black cartridge may be just blocked. One of the videos suggested making a cleaner with household ammonia and isopropyl alcohol. Put it onto a lint free tissue on the pad and let the head soak in it for a day or two and run the cycle again.

Ummm ... "rubbing alcohol" contains oil.

Just put new color cartridges in and tested print and it showed all color bars however when i ask it to print it does not print out anything in black


You didn't say what brand/model of printer you are using, but a lot of printers nowadays have a color cartridge(s) and a separate black cartridge. Perhaps the black cartridge needs to be replaced, too?

Only prints in yellow color


The printer must be able print all colors in order to execute the alignment. Part of the alignment process involves scanning printed colored (all colors including yellow) bars. See the web page below for a sample of the printout. I suggest that you clean the carriage and cartridge electrical contacts with a cotton swab moistened with water. If you still fail to get yellow, test the cartridge in another printer. ping me for the make of printer, anyways if it an HP series refer to the website below

The Problem is that the Cartridge needs to be Reset or has been reset Incorrectly. Visit your Local Staples For a After Market Reset Card. Place the Cartridge Onto the Card and There ya have it. (All Reset Cards are Brand Spacific, so please be sure to purchase the correct one.)

Unfortuantely , to solve the issue , sadly, yes you will have to replace the empty cartridge to continue to use the printer in a normal fashion. Its a sneaky and dirty trick many printer manufactuers do to make more money off of the customer through the purchase of printer ink.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.

My printer will not print.


Is there a cable physically connecting the printer to the computer? If so, do you see the printer in Printers and Faxes?
