How to replace the ink cartridges on a Dell All-In-One 948 Inkjet Printer

6. If you are installing new ink cartridges, then remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.

Note: If you are wanting to print photos you will want to install a photo cartridge along with the color cartridge. Also if you are switching between the photo and black cartridge but they still have ink in them be sure to store then in an air tight container so they do not dry out.

7. Insert the new ink cartridges. Making sure that the black or photo ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier and the color ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

8. Snap each lid closed

I keep getting a cartridge error message. I have replace the ink cartridges but still have the error.


Are you using Dell Series 11 ink cartridges?

Open the printer with the power on and remove the Dell Series 11 black ink cartridge and make sure the tape is off the cartridge, then reseat the cartridge back in. Now do the same for the Dell Series 11 color cartridge. Now when you close the printer, it should print an alignment page. Any error messages?

Black = Black side(left side) Color = Color side(right side)

Photo = Black side(left side) Color = Color side(right side)

Dell Series 11 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 11 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It possible to get a Dell Series 11 Cartridge with a bad sensor. Take back to place of purchase for a replacement.

Refilled my Dell Ink Cartridge


yes, it's safe, and if you are dissatisfied with the cartridge, take it up with the cartridge re-filler...better yet, spend about $100 on a black & white laser printer (HP), and get 2000 pages per cartridge, and reduce cost per page by 20 times or more! And If you buy compatibles for this (which are more reliable) -save even more.

Refilling black cartridge


The printer will never do that, once the cartridge is spent a little divine device inside tells the printer it's been used and spent. You can still print to from the cartridge but it wont warn you when your low on ink, price you pay for not buying a new cartridge.

Low warning annoying me


Dell's proprietary grip on its printers causes this message to appear with any non-Dell or refilled cartridge. The messages/ink filled levels will only be reset if you buy a new Dell ink cartridge or have a way to update their encoding strip.

The good news is that you can still use refilled cartridges just minimize the level warnings to the task bar and ignore them when they come up. Everything should still print fine.
