Question about Dell 926 All-In-One InkJet Printer

926 ink cartridges

How do I alter the manufacturers set up which only allows the use of DELL cartridges. I have seen alternative cartridges in stores, but because of the in built programme, it says these are not compatible, and only DELL cartridges can be used
Thanks
Doug

I have used remanufactured ink cartridges for a long time. They work; it is just that the printer keeps saying that the ink is low. Ignore it. The remanufactured ones last a lot longer than the ones that I buy from Dell.

My Dad bought new ink cartridges ( black and color) and installed them in the printer and it is not registering that they are installed. What are some things I should check for and how can I fix this????


After installing new ink cartridges in your Dell all-in-one 926 printer, you may receive an error message telling you the print does not recognize the new cartridges. Refilled or third-party cartridges, which Dell does not recommend using with the 926, often trigger the error message. You may also receive this error after you have been using the same ink cartridges for some time. Whether the cartridges are new or not, the error can be caused by a number of sources. Following the steps below should clear up print cartridge problem.

  • 1

    Open the Dell 926's front cover with the power on and wait for the cartridge carriage to come to a stop. Remove the ink cartridges by pressing on the tabs at the top of each cartridge. Check the cartridges to make sure you have removed all of the blue protective plastic film. Look for the "Dell" logo stamped into the cartridges' lids to ensure they are genuine cartridges.

  • 2

    Clean the shiny metal portions of the ink cartridges with a damp microfiber cloth. Allow each cartridge to dry completely.

  • 3

    Clean out any paper, staples or other debris that you may be able to see, then reinsert the cartridges into their appropriate slots. Put the black ink cartridge into the left slot and the color cartridge into the right slot. Make sure both click back into place.

  • 4

    Close the Dell 926's front cover and turn off the printer. Unplug the power cord and USB cable from the printer for five seconds, then reconnect them.


  • If your Dell 926 fails to recognize the print cartridges after following the above instructions,

    take it to a repair shop for servicing.


    Good Luck and Happy Printing

    I just had my cartridges refilled but my printer still says low ink i used my old cartridges from dell how can i get my 926 printer to work with the refilled cartridges it will not print.


    With this type of cartridge your printer will always think refills have low ink. This is because the electronics on the cartridge cannot be reset to tell the printer it is full of ink. However you should still be able to print and just ignore the ink levels. I think the problem you are having is that the electronics on your cartridge are no longer functioning. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this problem. I know you can buy refills from Cartridge World stores, but I don't know about other retailers.

    Dell series 9 refill and low ink warnings


    The series 9 cartridges can be refilled. As long as the electronics are still functioning on your cartridge you should be able to print no problem. There is no way to reset the ink levels on these cartridges so you will just need to ignore the ink level warnings. I would recommend Cartridge World for ink refills. Many other stores and on-line sellers don't do the cleaning, vacuum filling, electrical testing, and print testing that Cartridge World stores do to make sure your cartridge works.

    Hi there


    Replacing Ink Cartridges 1. Turn on your printer. 2. Lift the printer unit. 3. The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy. 4. Press down on the ink cartridge lever to raise each ink cartridge lid. 5. Remove the old ink cartridges. 6. Store the cartridges in an air-tight container, such as the storage unit you received with your photo cartridge, or dispose of them. 7. If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge. 8. 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. 9. Snap each lid closed. 10. Close the printer unit. 11. An alignment page automatically prints.

    Dell 926 injection refill kit didnt work


    The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.

    Dell cartridge are quite expensive, and refilled and non original cartridge are often not accepted by Dell printer. If you use non original cartridge often you keep getting this message unless you replace both cartridges.
    Be also careful also if you use refilled, sometimes refilled can leak all over the inside of your Dell printer right when ink is coming to the end.
    In your case try replacing both cartriges at the time, this usually clears the error.
    A suggestion: Dell small inkjets are sold at a price often inferior to the cartridge set price, and now you know why, ask the price for a new Lexmark, HP, Epson,Brother, Canon etc. next time you have to replace a cartridge set, it may be worth buying a new printer.
    Apart small inkjet sector, Dell produces excellent laser printers, computers, laptops and more.

    You can read more opinions on small dell inkjets here or using google.
