Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Small thin film fell out

I have a Dell 924 AIO Printer. It was working great until a small, thin, transparent, plastic film strip came out with a printed page. It has two small holes on either end that seem to connect to two pins on either side of the printer. I tried to re-attach it, but it won't stay. Now the ink cartridge slams back and forth inside the printer whenever I start it or try to print something. Can I fix this? Is it worth paying to get it fixed?

Try to cut off a thin plastic strip. just try to copy that. it basically guides the cartridge on where to print. also i remember that it should have a spring connected to the holes.

The plastic strip you are referring to is the mechanisim to move the cartridge carrier back and forth, you may need to take it to a certified technician to see if it can be replaced or if not damaged put back into the printer.

Error message 1200 Dell AIO 922 printer


Buy and HP. Seriously though, you can look in the printer and should see a small thin plastic strip that looks tinted and sits behind the path of the print cartridge carriage. This strip has many vertical lines the printer counts to know it's position on the path. If this is dirtied with ink, a common problem, the printer can skip lines due to an inability to shine light through and count them. If this look inky, wipe it with a damp paper towel and COMPLETELY dry it. Unplugging the printer while the carriage is in motion will give you the ability to slide if freely. Good luck.

New colour ink cartridge not being recognised by my dell 924 it is the correct one (series 5 J5567) and the plastic films have been removed . the printer only prints in black


Please check the driver or printer properties to make sure that you have not set the printer to print "Black Only," or "Gray Scale Only."
