    I replaced my color cartridge with a Dell cartridge and now I am getting the cartridge error message. I have cleaned the copper connections and cleaned some gobbed up ink from within the printer, but I still can't print! I've searched high and low and the internet and cannot find a solution. Please help.

    After changing my ink cartridges the printer says, "cartridge missing install color ink cartridge on the right side." There is a brand new cartridge installed and, I have even tried another cartridge with the same results.

You can either try 'wicking' the cartridge - remove and wipe on a wet towel, then dry. Otherwise you can try to power cycle the printer with the cartridges out of the unit.

Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Can you copy a document under the glass? Black & White and color? Do they look ok?

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 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 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)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges .

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would that these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

My printer want print black but have a new cartridge i have a 946 dell printer ...it keep telling me right cartridge missing


You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the blank ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.

Left ink cartridge incorrect. It is the right ink


A trick which may work is cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer.

Make sure you've switched it off first, I'd try gently buffing with a soft dry cloth first.

HP reccommend using distilled water and cotton buds, but not alcohol based cleaning fluids.

Allow the water to evaporate before replacing cartridge and switching on.

Dell 946 A10 Printer will not accept genuine Dell Cartridge


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Install old cartriage, if you still have it, let the machine tell you that it is empty, then go through the install process with one of the new ones.
