How do I install the printer cartrige? I do not have the booklet...


  1. Turn on your printer.

  2. Open the front cover.

The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

  1. Press the tabs on the cartridge lids, then lift the lids.

  1. Remove the old ink cartridges.

  1. Store the cartridges in an air-tight container or dispose of them properly.

  2. If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.


NOTE: You can use your printer with one cartridge (color or black) at a time. To extend the life of your color cartridge and improve printing speed, install both a color cartridge and a black cartridge at the same time.
  1. Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the color ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier and the black ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

  1. Snap each lid closed.

  1. Close the front cover. The front cover must be closed to start a print job.

  1. Open the Dell Printer Solution Center by clicking Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo Printer 720® Dell Printer Solution Center.

  2. Click the Maintenance tab.

  3. Click Install a new print cartridge.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Select the type of cartridge you installed.

NOTE: Specify whether the cartridge is a new cartridge or an old cartridge (one that has been used before). If an old cartridge is incorrectly identified as New Cartridge in the Dell Printer Solution Center, ink levels may be incorrect.

720 printer didn't print well; installed new dell cartridge; won't print at all; goes through all motions; command voice instructions normal. Nothing, not a mark on a page. What do do?


This may be a printer that may have the same issue as all the other Epson models

The issue is that this printer may have caked and stopped up ink in something called an ink tube runner. This plastic tube runs the excess ink off the cartriges and funnels them to some ink pads below the printer assembly. You would need to get a matanace manual to see what new pads to buy as well as going to fixyourownprinter.com to get the cleaning liquid to unclogg the tube from all the stopped up ink trapped in it

Dell 720 color cartridge doesn't seem to be printing with enough 'green'...all pics tinted red. New cartridge. Is is possible to balance the color any better?


Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle -- some of the ink-jets may be clogged, thus reducing the amount of ink reaching the paper.

Try "photo-quality" paper.

Hello out there.... Trying to use Recycled photo ink cartridges from Enviroinks.com in my Dell Photo 926 printer. Printer not recognizing new cartridge at all. Any suggestions??? Or has Dell succeeded in...


Do noit waste your time.

Most companies delibertly reject 3rd party ink or refilled cartridges.

Some companies consider this to be product tampering and will even void warranties because of these inks,

No, its not just to keep the market price hiogh, Its because these companies have no way to protect the intergity of their products. More often then not this "Cheap" ink, will cause leakae, poor print quaklity and damage to the print heads.

The next logical step is to try to gfet the printer fixed or replaced under its warranty.

Ink is chemicall developed to work with each printer. There is no way, for example, that I can say your ink will work in my product without extensive testing. Now if you want to pay me to do the testing...

Dell 720 printer , new ink cartriges but prints blank pages


I know it sounds silly, but never underestimate the obvious.

Did you remove the plastic protectors from the cartridges?

Another solution maybe to return the cartridges to the store for an exchange. It has only happened once to me, but I exchanged the cartridge for another "new" one and it worked fine.

Good luck

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
Try to print a test even this fails then you have cartridge head short in the printer ...

No black ink print. Prints in light blue


Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.
