Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Low ink reading

I have a dell aio 924 printer. The first time I ran out of ink, my parents ordered online as directed. It gave us a low ink warning, but printed normally, for it was known that it would read off like that. The next time we ran out of ink, we bought replacements from office depot. For we find it very inconvienient to order online, when we can simply go to the store. This time when the low ink warning appeared - I'd print something the color is wrong. It's also blurry and faded. I have many projects due for school and I need to find a way to get this printer going. Thanks for your help.

Re: low ink reading

Thats a cartridge problem. Office max, staples and office depot do not have very good dell compatibles. I've heard since lexmark makes them, they use generic ink for all dell/lexmark. take it back, and go to cartridge world. They have specific inks for dells.

My dell 924 printer shows right cartridge incorrect and I just had both cartridges refilled what is wrong?

I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges through I got 4 for the price of 1 through Dell. After installing the first cartridge, it printed for a few days and then I got the same message "left cartridge incorrect". Unfortunately, I did not read the piece of paper that came with my cartridge that says "STOP" read this before you install the cartridge.
I had to throw out the cartridge that I had just installed and put in a new one and follow these steps:
1. If you recieve a pop-up message indicating that the cartridge has been depleted or a low ink level warning, please disregard.
2. Check "Don't display this dialog again" and click "ok" or "continue printing" if necessary.
3. In the printer status window, since you have already ordered ink, do not click the "order ink online" button. If you have the option, check "I have ordered my ink, please don't remind me again." If not, close the window and continue printing.

I'm not sure why, but these instructions were vital to getting my remanufactured cartridges to work.

I am posting this reply to hopefully help out the next person that has this problem. Unfortunately, I lost a perfectly good ink cartridge because I failed to read the instructions the first time. But the next one worked just fine when I followed the instructions. Good luck!

Installing ink cartridge

I've had this problem too. The only way to make the message go away is to buy the ink from Dell. Although generic ink cartriges will work the printer will not/can not reset the "low ink" message unless you buy the cartriges directly from Dell. So you can use another brand, but you'll just have to overide the low ink message when it pops up by telling it to continue printing. Then you can tell when the ink is low by seeing it when it prints out.

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.

Refilled black ink before it ran out-now can use at all

After hours of reading about this I finally found the solution. This will NOT reset your levels but you will be able to print without being told you have empty levels.

Start, Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes.
On the next screen, Right click on your printer then on Printing Preferences. Now select the Advanced tab.

Near the bottom left, you will see more options. Click that and then Appearance. Check NEVER display printing status and make sure under Complete-A-Print, all is unchecked. Click OK at the bottom.

You can print without the stupid messages coming up. Dells printer ink cartridges have a computer chip in them and the refurbished ink does not which causes these error messages telling you your ink cartridges are empty.
