For the first time I am attempting to print photos on my home Dell Photo 924 - and the results have been lack-luster, sticky, off color, incredibly slow drying photos.
I am using the correct ink (regular color series 5 M4646 in the right holder and the photo ink series 5 P/N: J4844 in the left), and I get off color, sticky, non-glossy results. I have tried several types of glossy photo paper, including Dell's brand, and I still get the same results. I have gone into quality settings and test alignments, etc, with no results. It's almost like the printer isn't matching color codes correctly, and the ink is not adhering correctly (like trying to use ANY paper but Epson paper on the Espon R2400).
My job entails printing archival and museum quality images on several types of computers and printers, and I have never had a problem with any of the other printers that I haven't been able to solve. I find it hard to believe I am missing something obvious.

hello You either have to change the ink cartridge or try to clean the ink cartridge nozzles as described in the user manual; http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/924/en/om_en/om_en.pdf On page 54 it states the following:
To clean the ink cartridge nozzles: 1 Load plain paper. For more information, see "Loading Paper" on page 19. 2 In Windows XP, click Start-Control Panel-Printers and Other Hardware-Printers and Faxes. In Windows 2000, click Start-Settings-Printers. 3 Right-click the Dell Photo AIO Printer 924 icon. 4 Click Printing Preferences. The Printing Preferences dialog box opens. 5 Click the Maintenance tab. 6 Click Clean Print Cartridges. 7 If the print quality has not improved, click Print Again. 8 Print your document again to verify the improved print quality. 9 If you are not satisfied with the print quality, wipe the ink cartridge nozzles, and then print your document again.
