Printer dell 940a printer

  • JOANN Jan 23, 2013

    I REALLY did not describe my problem, see the DELL 940 a -printer- is from my previous dell computer which I had from 2004-2010, the new computer which I've had exactly three years from now is also a Dell, well the printer has been giving me various problems from not grabbing the paper, from the computer giving me a message saying that the printer and the computer are not communicating giving me the option to cancel my print job and NOW the computer tells me it is a cartridge problem to reload the cartridges, before this though I researched the help topic for the printer & it said to unplug it from the surge protector and plug it directly into the wall socket which I did, but that was a previous problem I had, it seems that I had to shut down the computer & reboot it, and when the computer came back the printer would print the various print jobs, it is really frustrating b/c last month I had a problem with the computer shutting down by going into safe mode which I had to unplug the computer about 5-10 times at least for it to start up again,so I researched this & finally found that I could put the monitor on high performance so the monitor never shuts down while the computer is on, so far it has been working well ........ but the printer just keeps coming up with new problems

Why won't my 940A print in color anymore?

Hi There


Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.


There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
