SOURCE: How to install ink into printer 926 dell

There should be a button on your printer, you would need to press it in untill the carriage moves over into the install new cartridge position, you will know when it happens you should hear it.

Take out old cartridge 7 install a new one, normaly when you shut the lid down the printer will automaticaly do a head clean better known as priming the cartridge, you should then be ready to print.

SOURCE: paper jam on Dell Photo 926

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Printing only left side of a page, right side totally blank


What application are you using to print text? Word?
Try a simple application, like Notepad or Wordpad, to print some simple two-liner text.
Does printer print ALL the text on left side or just the half of printable material?
Even if you are indicating that page size is correct, looks to me some problem with the selection of print area.

Maybe it has not ink for the color you want to print or the printhead is clogged. In this last, you should change the printhead.
