    Ink cartridges are half full, sounds like it is printing, but the page comes out completely blank. It has been quite a while since i used this printer. Is it possible that the ink is just dry, or could there be something else with the printer. I have turned it off, taken out the ink and put it back in, but nothing fixes it.

Normal 0 This doesn’t help fix all printers because each situation is different and in most cases we don’t have enough information to determine the fix. So hope this will provide some help.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Goes through all the motions but does not print


Replace your Ink Cartridges. Ink dries up fairly quickly, sometimes only lasting a few weeks if the printer is frequently unused.

Can't print


Three years unused cartridges might have become really very tough by now. The heads must be clogged and really very hard. Please dip it (cartridge head) in a bowl of warm water (only the head portion), if possible, **** out some of its contents or you can use the refill kit to do some suction job (use soft tissue paper or cotton to wipe off the head after doing this). I would suggest you to replace the cartridges. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Prints blank


I know this may sound silly - but on th ebottom of the new cartridges there are little plastic slips which need to be removed before using... make sure these have been removed.

If this helped you then please help me and vote kindly.

Try find another printer(same model- says printer B)...take printer head from printer B to your printer(says printer A),use your ink cartridge and test your printing....if all color seen on paper, then the problem is your printer head, to make sure is it true or not, use printer head from printer A into printer B.see the result...

My Dell A940 is not printing with black ink.


how long have the cartridges sat? I've noticed after about a week, that dell ink clogs up. Also, Lexmark makes most Dell printers. In my time as a cartridge refiller, we blow through dells and lexmarks and when they **** out, usually it acts like it prints, but nothing comes out printed, only blank pages

Black cartridge not printing


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.
