My a920 wont respond to anything

Does both cartridges have to be in the printer for it to respond? or can just one, say the black ink one alone.

Both. All inkjet printers are built to never run out of ink by no operating if one of the cartridges are almost empty or missing.

My Dell A920 prints blank paper.


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.

Can the locking mechanism on the Dell 920, that locks the black ink cartridge in place be replaced..


My wife just had the same proiblem today with the same cartridge carriage. Target's has a Lexmark (which makes this Dell) for $49 which is probabpy better than trying to repair. FYI the ink cartridges for the Dell will not fit the Lexmark.

Dell A920 cartridge stall error.


Hi, I HAD the same problem, but not anymore!! I just opened the top to expose the "inside of the printeri" and checked the long clear band at the rear behind the print head. Make sure that the clear ribbon is NOT TWISTED. There is a small metal bar with a small extended part on the far left interior of the printer. Just make sure that the slot on the clear band is fitted on that extended part. This will put the print head back "on track" This worked for me!!

I just replaced black ink cartridge and snapped all cartridges back in place and recharged the printer now it wont recognize the black ink cartridge even though it was just replaced


Try wiping the copper contacts on the new cartridge with a dustfree cloth dampened with some alcohol. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling.

Hoirizontal white lines and poor quality in black and white print on dell a920 inkjet printer


If you are sure your ink cartridge is not empty, it may be worth running the head cleaner a few times then print a test page.

Worth a try for nothing.

Good luck.

Dell A920 Printing Problem


You should check:

1. Did you insert correct the cartridge in the holder?
2. Check if the contacts are clean in the cartridge holder, maybe something is ther and the needle-type contacts from the printer does not push right on the cartridge contacts.

Flashing Green Light/ Computer can't communicate with printer......


Hi. The flashing code signifies that there is a fault with the connection between the ink cartridge and the printer - usually because either the tape is still on the cartridge or maybe some glue from the tape still on the contacts. In my case, I think the cartridge was simply knackered, so I threw it away and opened yet another ink cartridge. It now works fine.

If you want to test yours, simply take out both ink cartridges, and re-insert them one at a time. If you've put a working cartridge in the flashing will stop; if you've put the dodgy one in it'll still flash. Just replace the dodgy one.

Hope this helps.

Unable to print using black printer cartridge


Well, Yeah mine did the same thing!!

And I got soooo fusy! and etc. But yeah okay go to the manul script and look for the ink Number then once you find the ink number go and buy the ink that has the same number of ink as yours!

Then,

Once you get home replace it with the others.

BUY THE BLACK INK! not the TRI-COLOR!
