Dell photo924 printer alternative ink cartridges

I have a dell all in one photo924 printer. My neighbor has a lexmark printer that looks exactly the same as my dell printer. Can I use other ink cartridges in my dell photo924 printer rather than ordering them from Dell? Any suggestions, other ink cartridge #'s I can use?
Any information would be greatly appreciated...

Although most manufacturers "suggest" using their cartridges exclusively, there are generic versions available. The only potential problem could be if the printer is still under warranty, they may not want to honor it if you do not use their ink. Do a web search for discount printer cartridges or something along those lines. I use a few myself but it may not be appropriate to advertise them here.

I have a dell 944 printer which is broken is there any lexmark printer that can use the same ink cartridges as I have a quantity of same


I've heard that some are but I don't know exactly which ones. You can look at this site http://www.inkjetsuperstore.com/lexmark-printer-ink-cartridge (and look at this page you'll see what I mean.You can see that your cartridges are compatible with some lexmark printers but it's hard to track down specific model numbers. I would call their customer service and ask them. I'm sure they could tell you.
Good luck

Can the locking mechanism on the Dell 920, that locks the black ink cartridge in place be replaced..


My wife just had the same proiblem today with the same cartridge carriage. Target's has a Lexmark (which makes this Dell) for $49 which is probabpy better than trying to repair. FYI the ink cartridges for the Dell will not fit the Lexmark.

My Dell A940 is not printing with black ink.


how long have the cartridges sat? I've noticed after about a week, that dell ink clogs up. Also, Lexmark makes most Dell printers. In my time as a cartridge refiller, we blow through dells and lexmarks and when they **** out, usually it acts like it prints, but nothing comes out printed, only blank pages

Dell 810 All-In-One InkJet Incompatible Ink Cartridge error message


Well, first off ,it's dell's fault, not yours. Even Official Dell cartridges are temperamental at best. The cartridge error you are explaining is common with Dells. They even have what's called a marriage issue, meaning the cartridge will work in only one single printer. However, I'm not sure how to fix it. Sometimes, you can install a new one and the other cartridge you never touched gives you fits, and goofs up. I'd say get a new printer. Dell is increasingly getting more stingy with their ink, and truth be told, I don't think their quality (*lexmark makes dell, so stay away from them too) matches HP or canon. If you want the best cost per page, get a canon that has individual ink cartridges. They are easy to refill, and print a great picture. You pay more $$ up front, but you'll save a ton in the long run

Dell A940....remanufatured ink cartrideges


Hi There,
I refuse to pay Dell prices for ink and have used branded Lexmark cartridges for aroud 5 years in my A940 with absolutely no problems (with a very simple modification - see below!).
The Dell A940 can use Lexmark type 82(black) and type 83(colour) which are marketed for the Lexmark X5100, X6100, Z55 and Z65 series of printers.
NOTE: the cartridges have a slightly different shape 'key' on the top. The cartridge retaining clips in the printer each have a plastic pin near the back on the left side, which locates on a Dell cart but not a Lexmark one. Simply lift the retaining clip right up, and cut the pin short with wire cutters. They have no other function, and you will then be able to use either brand of cartridge in your printer completely hassle free.

I hope this helps!

Ink Cartridge


Lexmark/Dell info
Before you buy a remanufactured Lexmark or Dell inkjet cartridge please carefully read and understand the following:
The more recent ranges of remanufactured colour Lexmark and Dell ink cartridges have been remarkably unreliable - the failure rate being massively higher than all other remanufactured goods we supply. Our remanufactured HP's, Canon, and older Lexmark/Dell ranges remain very reliable.
At seems almost certain the micro-electronics in these cartridges have been developed in the factory to ensure failure at a given point. THE MODELS MOST LIKELY TO CAUSE PROBLEMS ARE THE LEXMARK No1, No2, No3, No29, No33, No35 and No43, AND THE DELL MODELS TO FIT PRINTERS 922/924/942/944/962/964 and Dell printers sold in the last 12 months. For some reason the problems seem to be with colour cartridges - black units remain reliable.
On the reverse of a brand new Lexmark 29 colour cartridge box (in print so small it's almost impossible to read) it says: "THE PATENTED PRINT CARTRIDGE CONTAINED INSIDE IS LICENSED FOR A SINGLE USE ONLY AND IS DESIGNED TO STOP WORKING AFTER DELIVERING A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF INK. A VARIABLE AMOUNT OF INK WILL REMAIN IN THE CARTRIDGE WHEN REPLACEMENT IS REQUIRED." In plain English this means the cartridge will certainly fail - even when there is ink inside.
Although this is not printed on the boxes of certain other models, the high failure rate suggests similar technology is deployed. A perfectly good remanufactured cartridge can be installed, and used - albeit temporarily. Suddenly and without explanation, an error message "UNSUPPORTED CARTRIDGE" appears, and the cartridge refuses to work ever again. Most will almost certainly end up in landfill.
