Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

The copy feature does not copy the whole page

I insert my page on the flatbed, close the cover and select either black or color - copy. Only 1/4 of the page prints. I've tried it from my printer software and it prints fine. I don't always have the time to go to the computer to print and I don't have a regular copy machine.

SOURCE: won't print black!

I had same problem after refilling a cartridge, tried wiping head with damp cloth...kinda worked. I finally put my mouth over the refill hole and blew gently into it to create some pressure to unclog the cartridge. This worked very well for about a week. Then the problem recurred and I haven't had any luck getting black to print either.

SOURCE: Prints Blank Pages

I had a the same problems.

The Fix - Below where the cartridge ride on (side to side). There is a strip touch it is probably tacky with ink residue, it prevents the cartridges from moving freely. This causes friction and slows the printer down causing the errors.

Wipe it clean with windex. And that will clear all the issues with this printer.

Right catridge not correct

Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge versions for your Lexmark X5470 printer. Color cartridges compatible for your model are #33 and #35.
Try to re-insert the right cartridge into the printer. If that doesn't help, remove the right cartridge from your printer again. Close the printer cover. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. When the printer turns on, re-insert your right cartridge. Close the printer cover and check for any errors. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to do the Clean Cartridge function from the printer operator panel. On Copy mode, press the Menu button > select Tools > select Maintenance > select Clean Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the error still appears on the display screen, you probably have a faulty cartridge. Please replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

How do i change my lexmark x4650 print cartrige?

Installing/Replacing your ink cartridges:
1. Open the printer, and then press down on the cartridge carrier levers. printmastert_52.jpg

2. Remove the used print cartridge or cartridges. 3. If you are installing new print cartridges, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the color cartridge, insert the cartridge in the right carrier, and then close the color cartridge carrier lid. 4. If a black cartridge is included in the box contents, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the black cartridge, insert the cartridge in the left carrier, and then close the black cartridge carrier lid. 5. Close the printer.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:

1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

Instructions for scanning on epson cx4300/cx5500/dx4400

Hi there,
Scanning the Document

Place the original on the glass.
1) Open the document cover and place your original face-down on the glass, in the upper left corner. Move your original about 1/10 inch away from the top and left edges so all of it will be copied. 2) Close the cover gently so you don't move the original . Caution : Never open the document beyond where it stops and do not place heavy objects on top of the CX4600. If you need to copy or scan a thick or large document, you can remove the document cover. Just open it and pull it straight up. If you need to press the document flat while you copy or scan it, do not press too hard and be careful not to move it. Caution : Do not use excessive force on the document cover, and do not twist it diagonally. You may damage the document cover. When you are done, replace the document cover by inserting the tabs back into the slots. Copying a document. 1) Load paper. 2) Press copy button until you see the desired number of copiesin the Copy window You can select up to 9 copies at a time. 3) Press the paper type button to select PLain Paper. The light indicates which type is selected. 4) Press the paper size button to select Letter. 5) If you want your copies automatically reduced or enlarged to fit the loaded paper size, press the Fit to Page button. 6) To make color copy, press the Start Color button To make black and white copy, press Start B&W button. The ON light flashes and after a moment the CX4600 starts printing. If you need to stop copying at any time, just press the Stop button. Do no pull out paper that is printing, it will eject automatically to the output tray. Hope this helps. Please rate my response. Thanks Have a good day.

Can't work out how to use the multiscan? I press scan and it comes up with multiscan and I put the first piece of paper in but don't seem to get asked for any more sheets and it therefore just scans one...


Put the pages in the "multiscan" all at once, not just one sheet at a time. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) will feed one sheet of your document at a time untill all of the pages are scanned...

Copier feature (Black or Color) only produces a Black page

I beleive you are not able to make a color copy, once try to scan from the computer or all-in-one to check whether the scanner mechanism is working properly or not, if the scan comes out fine then remove the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with soft cotton cloth and also check the ink level of the cartridge, if the issue persists replace the color cartridge and if even the scan does not comes out good then there is an issue with the scanner mechanism.
