Question about Dell 926 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I put a new black ink cartridge in the printer. When attempting to print, no black ink is being used, just color ink, even though the little level indicator on the printer window the appeared when one prints says the cartridge is not empty. Earlier, the printer told me to take the tape off the cartridge, which, of course, I had already done. Any idea what's wrong?

Goto maintenance, on the panel of your printer..choose clean printhead..or wipe your black cartridge with a wet cloth..maybe your cartridge suffered clog that covered the nozzles ..

Replace your color cartridge and power printer on. The color cartridge is probably empty (even though there might be a little ink left in it). Many inkjet printers require the color cartridge for composite black even if you are not printing in color.

Many printers always use a small amount of each color even if you are only printing black, to prevent the color nozzles from drying out and getting clogged (and, it forces you to buy more ink, which is a profit center for printer manufacturers)

For this reason, some printers will not work if ANY of the cartridges are empty.

It should work again if you replace the color cartridge. Make sure to select "black ink only" or the option to print in black and white or grayscale to minimize color ink usage. It may still use a little, but that's OK.

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

The Kodak printers are designed in such a way so as to work with combination of Both color and black ink..In other printers,the prints are not that sharp,but In kodak printers color are awesome because even if we print black and white,the color from the color ink is also taken to give you those lifetime prints.Unfortunately There is no way to overcome this ink indicator.You cans et the preferences in the printer settings to print in black and white in your computer .

Black Cartridge Not Being Used While Printing


try printing in monochrome mode or gray-scale mode, and specify that it use only the black cartridge.

another problem could be that the head have gotten dry, remove the cartridge, get a soft cotton towel, wet it with a little bit of water, put the head of the cartridge (where the ink comes out from) on the cotton towel, you will see some ink come out of the cartridge, if yes, then put the cartridge back into the printer, and give it a try.

if not try to blow some air into the cartridge as if doing CPR ;) to the cartridge, this will help the ink get out of the cartridge.

if all this fails, get a new cartridge, as sometimes the head could have gotten damaged.

good luck

Maybe you can try to rest the black ink level 1st. To reset the ink level:
1) Goto the Lexmark Solution Center application.
2) Press button Maintenance>Install a new print cartridge, follow the instruction on screen. U may then have your new full ink level. Note: u only can reset to full level, cannot customize the level by your own.
Hope this help.

0% color ink


We cannot bypass the color ink check, since the all-in-one uses little amount of even the color ink to print in black. Once check the expiry date of the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge and reinsert it again and then try to print. If the issue still persists replace the color cartridge and check for the result, if we experience the same issue even after replacing the color cartridge then the issue is with the all-in-one.
