Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Gap in printing

On my Dell 924 printer, I actually have two problems:
1. When I print, the whole page prints, on the middle 1/3 of the paper, the printing is "wiggling". I realigned the cartridges (Dell cartridges) a couple of times but that did not solve the problem.
2. When I run a test page, in the section where it prints alternating blue and black boxes, I only get one row of them. Then it skips several rows and starts with the blue only.

Thanks for your help!

    The printer is fairly new and the cartridge monitor shows that both black and color cartridges are full so I don't know if that is the problem. Can you think of anything else I can try?

    Thanks!

Missing lines of print


hello
You either have to change the ink cartridge or try to clean the ink cartridge nozzles as described in the user manual;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/924/en/om_en/om_en.pdf
On page 54 it states the following:

To clean the ink cartridge nozzles:
1 Load plain paper. For more information, see "Loading Paper" on page 19.
2 In Windows XP, click Start-Control Panel-Printers and Other Hardware-Printers and
Faxes.
In Windows 2000, click Start-Settings-Printers.
3 Right-click the Dell Photo AIO Printer 924 icon.
4 Click Printing Preferences.
The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.
5 Click the Maintenance tab.
6 Click Clean Print Cartridges.
7 If the print quality has not improved, click Print Again.
8 Print your document again to verify the improved print quality.
9 If you are not satisfied with the print quality, wipe the ink cartridge nozzles, and then print
your document again.

hope this helps.

I have inserted new ink into dell 924 but not printing


This can happen to cartridges with attached print heads such as HP, Lexmark or Dell. All cartridges are weighed and tested before leaving the factory so lack of ink isn't the problem. It usually has to do with the print head of the cartridge not having any ink to feed it. This happens because cartridges are kept flat or upside down for weeks or months before being used and the ink settles away from the print head. The easiest remedy is to open the box and stand the cartridge upright for a few minutes before using. Then get a damp paper towel, fold it into quarters and sit the cartridge print head down onto it. Hold the cartridge down to the damp paper towel for three minutes. This will help pull the ink out of the print heads, priming them and getting them ready to print. Finally, install the cartridge into your printer and print a few test pages.
