Printing blank paper


At a guess you've bought a compatible generic cartrige. I had a similar problem different printer.

I had to by a genuine cartrige, worked fine. Contacted the generic cartrige provider, explained the problem. Returned cartriges and got refund no problem.

It looks like the generic cartrige makers are seeing some solutions to chipped cartridges but not all.

Low toner advise keeps on after changing toner and/or printing


Have you tried to unplug your printer and plug it back in, that will force the printer to re-check all its settings and it should notice that the toner is now full.

After changing the blank ink cartridge a test print was done. Now every time I switch the printer on to print a page I get another test print page before i can print what I need to print. This is stressful...


hi my name is pete and hope you are not stressing out to much here how you fix your printer when you change a blank ink carriage and stop printing off test prints you will notice on the back of the inks theres a chip something like what you would find on a visa card now the printer uses these chips to reconise the carriages are there so the ink will work now unplug the printer from the computer and switch off the printer from the mains leave for 10 minutes so it can reset the inks for you after doing so plug the printer back in but dont plug into computer yet let the printer set it self up when ready plug back in to computer open programme you use and find out if the test page is on or got a tick on it if so click it off and then try to print anymore problems let me know

DELLA 940 DOES NOT PRINT


Hi there Error 50c

Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

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

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
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.
