Dell 962 printer showing an error message "right cartridge incorrect". It printed from that cartridge for the past few months. Now nothing. I had to take it out to get the printer to print at all. Now only black and white but its faded without the color cartridge. They are Authentic Dell Cartridges and show about half full. I have tried cleaning, running alignment and even removing and reinserting. Help please!

I just sprayed windex on bottom of cartridge several times and wiped with paper towel until dark streak of black appeared. Then I dried off cartridge and replaced. It works now. Must have been clogged.

Hi Sobek70,

Please check if the cartridge is not dried out.

It will get dried out if you have not used that cartridge for certain period of time.

Try to replace the color Cartridge.

Incorrect cartridge


To reset the error code, disconnect the power cable from the back of the printer. Wait for 60 seconds. Then connect everything again.

If that does not work--you may also check with owners guide for cleaning the printer contacts (removing the cartridges). Cleaning often involves using a Q-tip with water to clean the contacts of the printer carriage. Below is a link for the basic owners guide.

Scanner not working, but printer does print


Can you copy a document, when you put it under the glass? B&W and color?

If so, then it is a driver issue. Try reinstalling the printer by following the instructions located at...

962 All-In-One Inkjet Printer owners thread (W7)

If not, then...

Unplug the printer from the wall. Noe remove the power brick from the printer for 60 seconds. This will reset any error message the printer is getting. Plug the printer back in.

Turn on the printer. Open up the printer and take out the black cartridge and reseat it. Do the same for the color cartridge. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page. Any error messages?

If you still get the error message, then it's possible that the sensor in the Dell Series 5 ink cartridge is bad. If this is a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge, then take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement or refund.

black = black side(left) color = color side(right)

photo cartridge = black side(left color = color side(right)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to pirchase a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. Please take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Right cartridge incorrect" and "Left cartridge incorrect


Many newer HP Printers internally keep track of your cartridges by a serial number embedded into the cartridge. When it's low, the printer remembers. This is entirely done within the printer itself, and not the printer software. Some printers EXPIRE the cartridges after 18 months according to the installation date even it is not empty.

Outrageous, but true.

A fix? Most HP printers will only keep 2 cartridges in memory, so if you have 2 extra cartridges, (even empty ones) you could cycle them through to reset the printers memory, and reset the ink level to full. Basically, even though you've refilled your cartridge, the printers has the cartridge's serial number stored in memory. This will reset it.

Dell AIO 962 printer faulty


Hi,
The error you are referring to could be related to either the cartridge or the printer, so please perform the steps below to check if the issue lies in the printer or the cartridge.
Power on the printer and open the top cove, the cartridges will align in the middle of the printer, remove both the cartridges form their slots and interchange them, yes put the Black cartridge in the Blue slot and the Color cartridge in the Black slot, then close the top cover of the printer and power off the printer and restart it, at this point of time check if the error message is changed or not if the error message is not changed and till showing the same as “Right cartridge is incorrect” then you can try to update the printer firmware form the Dell support site, here is how you can do it.
  1. Go to www.support.dell.com.
  2. Click on Drivers & Downloads.
  3. Under Option 2: Select a Product as printers.
  4. Locate the printer(s) 962 printer and click Go.
  5. Select an Operating System that is installed in your computer then choose downloads and look for Firmware.
  6. Download and install the firmware, then restart the computer and the printer, however please make sure that you do not restart your computer and the printer when the download and the installation is in progress.
If the issue is still not fixed after you upgraded the firmware then I believe that you will have to replace it. However if the error message changes to Left cartridge incorrect after you have interchanged the cartridges earlier then try these steps below.
  1. Remove the color cartridge and clean the metal contacts of the cartridge with a dry cloth thoroughly please make sure that you are using a soft dry cloth to clean the metal contacts of the cartridge.
  2. Make sure that the cartridge holder snap which sits on the top of the cartridge is fixed firmly.
  3. Make sure that you are using a Dell branded cartridge and it is not a refilled one cause Dell printers often give error message when you use a refilled cartridge or a cartridge of some other brand.
  4. If the issue is still not resolved replace the color cartridge.

Just found this partial fix: "Try removing the color cartridge and try printing with the color cartridge out. If it gives you a message that the cartridge is missing, it will still allow you to print by clicking "continue". And from there, it will allow you to print black. I think it really is a problem with your color cartridge." From searching the net, this seems to be a major problem with no solution from Dell!
