    My print cartridges won't align either, I've tried the scan thing, no luck. I just installed new cartridges & wish I hadn't.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

If you refilled the cartridges, you may want to try new Dell branded cartridges.

SOURCE: Dell Photo 944 won't print black and white

I had the same problem and just figured it out! On your control panel, choose printer and then Properties. Go to Printing Preferences and click on the Advanced tab. Under this tab is a button for More Options and then a section Complete-A-Print. I had to uncheck "use color cartridge for all black printing" and then check "use black cartridge to print in black and white." Then I had the option back to print in black and white. I have a Dell Photo 964 but I'm assuming the options should be the same. Hope this helps someone!

When I print from the internet my copy prints my color comes out a different color I think it might be my black ink is off I have a dell 946 all-in-one printer.


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.

In printing properties have you selected the 'grayscale' option, if still not working, in printer properties select maintenance > select Ink and cartridge settings > there select "black Ink only"

Won't print with one cartridge


I can get my 946 to print with just a black cartridge, as long as I select black and white printing (there is an error message on the PC but I can just select 'continue'). But with just a photo cartridge (i.e. a combined black and colour one) it won't work - looks the same, but the 'continue' option doesn't work.
