This may sound silly but many times people forget to take off the tape which is usually found on the print head of a new cartridge. Have you checked for this sticky tape?

Hope this helps,

Have tried printing from computer and tried printing test page from printer. both times the pages come out blank.. how do I check the toner levels in printer. thank you

The draw back of inkjet technology printers are, if it is not using quite long period of time,cartridge nozzles will dry up, result printer will act just like a printing some thing but nothing will come on paper(blank page) even ink levels are showing full.
Try to recover the both cartridges through 'clean print cartridge' process from the system,if not better consult cartridge re-filler to clean the nozzles..Replace new cartridges if above said methods are not worked out.

Replace cartridge message after new cartridge installed

If the cartridge you are installing is a refilled/remanufactured cartridge it may be that you need to indicate to the printer that it is a used cartridge and not a new one upon installation. This is because the cartridge works on a basis of counting pages and calculating page coverage to estimate how full it is. It has no way of telling that it has been refilled and can indicate to the printer that it is running low and needs replacing.

This message could however be the result of something as simple as the printer not being able to recognise the cartridge. In which case I would recommend wiping the contacts on the cartridge with a piece of kitchen tissue and re-installing. if this fails to helps I would recommend replacing the ink cartridge.

My ink cartridges are full however when I print something the paper comes out blank or with very, very faint lines. I have taken the ink cartridges out and shaken then but that didn't help. Not sure what...

Remove the cartridge and clean the electrical contacts with a q-tip and bottled or distilled water (do not use alcohol, this can cause problems). DO NOT CLEAN THE HEAD AREA.
Clean the contacts in the cartridge carriage as well.
Make sure you removed the protective tape from the ink cartridge. It may have ripped and still be covering the head area.
reinsert the cartridge.
Try printing about 5 pages.
If the 5th page is still blank, either the printer is defective, the cartridge is empty or not a genuine Dell cartridge, or the cartridge is defective (in this case, call 310-DELL and get it replaced).
if the printer is defective (IE - if you tried ANOTHER cartridge, and are getting the SAME results) then the printer needs to be serviced. If it's under warranty, call Dell - they will replace it.

Does not print, printer head moves across the print but only black pages i only get blank pages. all the ink cartridges are full

Has the printer sat for a while without printing? Are you using a refill kit or new cartridges?

An ink cartridge will dry-up if it sits for two long. When this happens the computer will read that they are full, but in reality they are bad.

If you are using a refill kit to refill them then they are likely clogged (common problem with refilling). You can try cleaning the cartridges where they meet the paper, with a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol.

Most likely the cartridges need replaced.

Page blank when printed

remove the ink cartridges and use a qtip dipped in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY clean the printhead on the cartridge. Reinsert and try printing again. If it prints anything at all, keep going till it becomes normal. If still nothing, replace the ink cartridges.

No cartridge the printer say. i put new cartridge in

It mean that the black cartridge is not recognised. It the black cart is original or compatible? Some printer won't recognise cartridge, if the black and colour is not same type. Try to install the black only. Is it recognised?

U150 Canon no cartridge recognised

Because these a refills inks the Chip things they are full so you must replace the cartridge with a new Canon one and the fault will go. If not just replace the chip with a new one!

Then your error u150 will go.
