Question about Dell 922 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I installed a remanufactured color cartridge and now my prints are all in magenta. The realignment page is not black and blue, but magenta and black and misses most of its print. Never had a problem with cartridges ordered directly from DELL, tried to save money and pay "only" $26.00 instead of over $30.00 plus shipping, now I'm at the end of my ropes.... I have removed the sticker and tape, took both, black and color cartridges out and back in, restarted computer, wasted tons of ink and paper in cleaning and realigning, still only printing in pretty pink... that's it! Anybody know what to do??? Please help, before I throw that printer out the window!!!! Eva :O
ALL 3 COLORS RECIPE:
Fill coffee mug ¼ full of water. Heat in microwave for 1 min 30 seconds. Remove coffee mug from microwave. Put tip (head) of cartridge in coffee mug for 15 minutes. Take cartridge out of coffee mug and hold tip (head) under hottest faucet water for a few minutes. Dab (do not WIPE) on a paper towel to see if all 3 colors are present. If they are - allow cartridge to dry for 30 minutes then put back in printer. If all 3 colors are not present - repeat process. Good Luck! It works GREAT for my DeskJet 840c - EVERYTIME!

I refill ink cartridges on site at my retail store. Sounds like the cartridges you bought got dried out (on the yellow and cyan outlets). Try taking a damp paper towel (not dripping wet) then take your cartridge and with the damp paper towel over your fingers--run the end of the ink cartridge over the paper towel. (where the ink comes out). This will 1. moisten the printhead, and 2. clean off any dried ink on the print head. One other thing you can do if this does not work...take the damp paper towel and set on something you do not mind getting ink on (cardboard box) then place the ink cartridge where the print head (where ink comes out) directly touches the paper towel. Check it in about 5 minutes--you should see a rainbow of the 3 primary colors--if not, it is clogged or dried out more then just at the print head. If this does not work...the ink cartridge needs additional cleaning. I use a sonic cleaner which works great. A sonic cleaner is similar to a jewelry cleaner--it vibrates the print head of the ink cartridge in a water just enough to cover the print head. This breaks loose any old or dried ink inside the print head. Either way-remanufactured work best when you can actually take them to a retail store that cleans and refills your original cartridges on-site. That is what I do at my store and have about a 95% success rate. Do not loose faith in remanufactured or refilling stores that sell these. Recycling can save you a lot and helps the environment. The success rate is still good (95%+) on remanufactured products. You just got one of those 5%. If you were my customer--I would clean it free and guarantee it to perform.

Hi.....I did what Inkshoppe requested, I also had the same problem with only Magenta coming through...didn't work for me..I rang my lovely office supply guy and he told me to deep clean printer...following steps for a PC click on Computer Panel, Printers and Faxes, right click under Canon Pixma, scroll down to properties..click under Maintenance Tab, then click under Deep Cleaning.....my printer works fabulously now..Maybe this will work for you..

Technically speaking your printhead might already damage or severely clogged, have you tried to conduct nozzle check, and how many times have you tried to execute cleaning, if you have tried it for four-up times there's notheing you can do but to call replace the printhead together with the pump cap assembly, yeah right pump cap assembly must be check if it still suck ink thoroughly during cleaning process.

Our black ink quit printing, cleaning did not help. I finally got it to print by selecting:
