Unplug the power, Take the ink out of the carrier. Turn it on and see if it asks for it. The machine is not seeing the ink cartridges.

SOURCE: Dell 942 carrier jam

This morning I replaced the cartridges in the Dell 942 printer, they jammed to the left which made a loud grinding noise and the cartridge jam error came on.

I solved the problem by turning the printer on with the top up which moved the cartridges to the right a little so I could reach back, push one down a little manually which freed them to move over to the middle.

Dell does not have Mac drivers for this printer. Your Dell printer was made by Lexmark and if you can find a similar printer on Lexmark’s website, it might or might not work. You can also try Gutenprint for Mac OS X which may or may not work.

SOURCE: My dell 946 printer prints out blank pages but ink

Hi there

Just some thing for you to try.

First make sure you got the printer driver handy, then close down the PC and restsrt and reinstall the printer driver back, and dont put the Usb lead in till the software asks you to do so.

All the best Pineworks

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.

I bought remanufactured ink cartridges for my Dell 946 printer. When the reserve tank screen pops up, there are no boxes around the "continue printing" and "cancel printing" options. It won't let me click...


ink cartridges are made in such a way that they have electronic parts which communicate with the printer to get the correct information in order to work.
did you purchase from dell or retailer. did you get the exact part number and not a just look alike cartridges.
Also try reinstalling the drivers by removing them and installing again, scan the pc for registry errors before and after uninstalling and again after installation of the drivers with a programme such as uniblue registry booster or tuneup utilities to clear your pc or errors.
good luck

Will not fax long distance calls


fax machines do not chose this. who is your long distance carrier? you need to take an old single line phone and plug it into the fax line and call the number. you should hear a message from the carrier telling you information. then correct what they tell you.

I just put a new cartridge in my dell AIO 946 printer but it still says the ink level is low.


well this always happens with all printers. I have a HP, in the beginning when I first bought the printer, it came with a ink cartridges, it showed the levels. But after the ink was all gone, it showed empty ink levels. The best way to solve this is to ignore this. When you see that your paper is poorly printer, then your ink cartridges need changing.

First time to install (change) ink cartridge, at a loss, raised top, do not see cartridge slot.


Just lift open the cover on the printer, wait for the ink cartridges to slide into view, release the cartridge that you are replacing,.........

then open the box to your new cartridge, on the bottom is aprotective plastic tab (it's obvious if you look, it keeps the ink contact points clean) Remove that... plug the cartridge in........it will go in rather easy, just be sure to line it up........

Close the Lid

Try to Priint.

Dell 946 new ink still says low ink


You can't. Certain cartridges are not able to indicate a fully charged cartridge after having been refilled. This is due to the fact that they have an ROM chip---Read Only Module--that is not programmable after it has been "used up" by indicating an empty ink reservoir.
