Question about Dell 926 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Printing alignment I replaced the color cartridge and now it keeps telling me that there is alignment problems and to remove the tape which I did. I pulled out the power brick and that didn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer and that didn't work. Help--I didn't have problems until I replaced the color cartridge.

    I changed both the black ink and color ink cartridges, and the printer tells me that there is an alignment problem and to remove the tape. There was no tape on the cartridges.

    Ordered a new color cartridge (from Dell) for the Lexmark AIO 926 and installed it, but the printer displayed an "Install new cartridge" message or tells me to remove the tape strip (which I also did). A local cartridge filler cleaned the cartridge and told me its ink reservoir was full. My PC display shows a "?" over the color cartridge picture and the printer prints only black type.

I have a 926 Dell All In One Ink Jet Printer. I am having an issue where only certain items are printing. For example I can submit a word document and maybe the first two lines will print then nothing else will print. But on my Print Preveiw screen it is showing that everything should be printing. I thought it might be just that document but I have tired printing off the web, Excel, Emails and I have the same issues. I have uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it. I went to Dell support and downloaded any upgrades or patches. So I have not clue what to do next. Can someone help. Thanks

Greetings my name is mark and I will be glad to assist you. HP printers like a lot of HP products are designed to be proprietary even right down to the ink they put in. Did you replace the cartridge with a factory cartridge if not that is your problem if so take a soft cloth with "denatured" alcohol and clean the points on the cartridge and in the printer. the reason for the denatured alcohol is regular rubbing alcohol contains 80% water and may damage the contacts. Let me know if this worked if not we will try another solution.
Be mucho blessed,
Mark

Color Cartridge Failure


You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!

Try swabbing the print surface of the color cartridge with a q-tip and a little alcohol. It may be clogged.
