If you refilled the cartridge instead of buying a new one, than that is your problem. New printers won't accept refilled cartridges, you must purchase a new one.
Let me know if this helps, and please rate my answer. Good luck.

My ink cartridges are nearly full but it is only printing blank pages


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Have you taken out the tape (which protects the pad from drying up) from the new cartridge which covers the ink pad before fixing the new cartridge? If not done do so now.

We just installed a new black cartridge in Dell printer A940 and it will not print black or copy what is going on


Black printer ink in Dell Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

It is possible that the cartridge that you bought is not working and it happens, I experience it myself. Since you have done most of the troubleshooting for printer cartridge issues, you may want to contact Dell technical support to have that cartridge replaced. They might ask you to do those steps again to validate the replacement.

Dell 720 printer wont print black


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the

I have put in brand new color and black and white cartridges. The black works fine on the test pages, but not one bit of color shows. How can I fix it?

Dell 720 printer won't print


Our Dell AIO A940 stopped printing black ink. Tried so many things, and finally (a year later) got it to print by selecting:

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

It's worth a try! Good luck!
