Color printer won't print color

Dell Photo AIO Printer 922. I installed a brand-new color cartridge and no colors will print. I tried a simple Word document with three colors and the page was blank. Black prints just fine. The printer is about 4 years old. Please advise.

Normal 0 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

My dell v313w printer gives the message that I need to replace cartridges even after I have put in new cartridges


Are you using Dell Series 21,22 ink cartridges?

Try Cleaning the Printhead on Dell AIO V313w, V515w, V715w, P513w, and P713W Printers

Troubleshooting Printhead Problems on the Dell AIO V313w, V515w, V715w, P513w, and P713W Printers

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 21, 22 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 21, 22 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 21, 22 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 21. 22 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 21, 22 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

Hi, Even though I have replaced the black cartridge, I continue to get the message that the ink is empty. I would love some guidance!!!!


Hi snascent,

It's possible that you may also need to replace the color ink cartridge. If this is not the case, then the message you're receiving could be due to any of a number of factors:

1) Make sure that you've removed the sticker and transparent tape from the new cartridge before installing it.
2) Make sure that the new cartridge is snapped in securely, and that the lid over it is snapped close.
3) Make sure that the black cartridge is on the left and the color one is on the right (silly as this may seem, it can actually cause problems).
4) If all of these are done and you still get the same message, you might try powering off and back on.
5) If it still doesn't recognize the ink, you might have a clogged print nozzle. To clean the print nozzles, click Start Menu > Programs > Dell Printers > Dell Photo AIO Printer 922 > Dell Printer Solution Center. On the "Maintenance" tab, click "Clean to fix horizontal streaks" - then click "Print."

I hope this helps you - please let me know if you still have problems, or if I can be of any other assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H

Printer Always Indicates Ink is Low or Cartridge is Incorrect


To get rid of the low ink warnings google the specific error message with 'ink refill' and look for 'engineers reset' or similar ..

NB. Dell printers (re-badged Lexmarks) are notorious for ink usage and high costs .. so my best recommendation would be to throw it away and purchase something else ..

DELL AIO 922- All in one- Printer won't print


Remove the right ink cartridge (color). You will get an error saying the cartridge is empty, but ignore that. Hit cancel on your printer. Print your job...when your print screen comes up, under preferences check the box for print colors in black and white. Your printer should print just fine without the color cartridge. Ignore the flashing red light.

Just found this partial fix: "Try removing the color cartridge and try printing with the color cartridge out. If it gives you a message that the cartridge is missing, it will still allow you to print by clicking "continue". And from there, it will allow you to print black. I think it really is a problem with your color cartridge." From searching the net, this seems to be a major problem with no solution from Dell!
