Question about Dell 942 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I bought a new Dell color ink jet cartridge for my Dell All in One 942 printer and after I replaced it it still showed it as an empty color cartridge. I order it as new directly from dell. I tried to take it out and put it back in but still shows as an empty cartridge and won't print in color. I also ordered a black one and that one worked fine.

My color ink jet is empty--I have put a new black cartridge in, and want to print only in black but cannot override the printer saying the color one is empty--I need to print stuff for work-how do I do...


with that printer you have to have both cartridges in the printer if you have the old color cartridges put it in and see if that works but more the likely you are gonna have to buy a new color cartridge

I bought a ink cartridge for my dell 942 printer. The box at staples says its for a 942 (it's the "offical" dell ink) but when I try to install it, it won't "snap" into place.


compare your old 942 cartridge with the one you just bought, if they're the same type then try putting the cartridge again, make sure that you have taken out the sticker on the cartridge copper contacts then put it in the right way. otherwise, have the cartridge replaced by the store you bought it from or contact Dell tech support and have them do the replacement.

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 942 all-in-one printer problems.


The problem is simple. Try inserting your old in cartridges. If the old ones work, the ink cartridges are defective. Contact Dell and get these replaced.
Otherwise the printer has a problem. try cleaning the metal contacts of the ink cartridge and the ink carrier.

Dell 942 AIO printer cartridge problem


Was your replacement cartridge a new dell product? If it was, the sensor on the prnter should recognize it as new and reset the indicator to full. If, however, the cartridge was refilled, remanufactured, or otherwise an off brand, the ink indicator will show it to be empty. Just ignore and use the printer as normal -- it will print just fine, but you may need to press the select button to get it to start printing the first page.
