I don't understand the printer message. Even though it may be "compatible" to a Lexmark, you may have to get the Dell cartridge because it will only recognize a Dell branded cartridge. At least try to reinstall the old one and see if you get the same message. If you do, then you may have a printer problem. If not, then the cartridge is the culprit.

My dell photo 966 says'left cartridge missing Insert black or photo cartridge'.I've put in a new cartridge but I still get the same message.


the contact that detects the left cartridge may be dirty or not functioning at all. clean it with cotton and 100\% isopropyl alchohol then reinsert the cartridge. if it still doesn't work, it must be replaced.

Dell Photo 966 Ink Cartridge Keeps Gumming up. Cleaning Cartridges doesn't help. Wipe cartridge off and maybe it works for one or two pages before quality goes down. Replaced cartridges but still have same...


Since you already replaced the cartridges there is a problem with the printer.The cartridge must have made the pinter bad.Now you have to take it to the Service Center.
