Well, first off ,it's dell's fault, not yours. Even Official Dell cartridges are temperamental at best. The cartridge error you are explaining is common with Dells. They even have what's called a marriage issue, meaning the cartridge will work in only one single printer. However, I'm not sure how to fix it. Sometimes, you can install a new one and the other cartridge you never touched gives you fits, and goofs up. I'd say get a new printer. Dell is increasingly getting more stingy with their ink, and truth be told, I don't think their quality (*lexmark makes dell, so stay away from them too) matches HP or canon. If you want the best cost per page, get a canon that has individual ink cartridges. They are easy to refill, and print a great picture. You pay more $$ up front, but you'll save a ton in the long run

Hi try these steps

STEP: Disconnect and Reconnect the Printer Power Supply
Top of Form 1
Bottom of Form 1

Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
Wait 15 seconds.
Reconnect the power supply to the back of the printer.

Ensure the printer is powered on.

Lift the scanner unit.

Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier
Take a clean, damp cloth and wipe the nozzle of the print cartridge from front to back.
Turn the cartridge so that you are looking at the contacts on the back side of the cartridge
Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the contacts so that no dust or other contaminants are visible
Clean the contact inside the printer with the dry cloth used to clean the cartridge contacts.

Replace the cartridges in the carrier and close the scanner unit.
STEP: Verify Each Cartridge Carrier Has an Ink Cartridge
Check to make sure the left cartridge carrier contains a black or photo ink cartridge.
Check to make sure the right carrier contains a color ink cartridge.
Remove each cartridge and examine it to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the contacts and the print head.
Replace each cartridge in the proper carrier.

Let me know the status.

Regards

SOURCE: Problem with Dell ink jet refill....

Hi ,
The dell printers will not identify a refilled cartridge,but still you can print . i think u have refilled the standard color cartridge and you have the dell 924 printer. regarding the software , the dell printers have an inbuilt software which will automatically detect a new cartridge( not a refilled one). But if you want to do it from the computer you can try this.

click on start-------> All programs--------->dell printers------> Dell AIO 924 printer--------> Dell All in one center.

once you click on All in one center , you will find a page coming up on the screen , and on the top center of the page you will get an option called " Maintenance /Troubleshoot " click on that and then you will get an option " install New Cartridges" click on that and then install the refilled cartridge.

Let me know if it works....

Install old cartriage, if you still have it, let the machine tell you that it is empty, then go through the install process with one of the new ones.

Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Can you copy a document under the glass? Black & White and color? Do they look ok?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

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

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

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 get a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would that these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

Dell AIO Printer 946 I can't print a word document in black and white. When i click on printing preferences, it doesn't allow me to click on " print in black and white" Please help


In printing properties have you selected the 'grayscale' option, if still not working, in printer properties select maintenance > select Ink and cartridge settings > there select "black Ink only"

My printer want print black but have a new cartridge i have a 946 dell printer ...it keep telling me right cartridge missing


You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the blank ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.

Left ink cartridge incorrect. It is the right ink


A trick which may work is cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer.

Make sure you've switched it off first, I'd try gently buffing with a soft dry cloth first.

HP reccommend using distilled water and cotton buds, but not alcohol based cleaning fluids.

Allow the water to evaporate before replacing cartridge and switching on.

Can you print to a Dell 946 All-In-One InkJet


Dell does not have Mac drivers for this printer. Your Dell printer was made by Lexmark and if you can find a similar printer on Lexmark’s website, it might or might not work. You can also try Gutenprint for Mac OS X which may or may not work.

I just put a new cartridge in my dell AIO 946 printer but it still says the ink level is low.


well this always happens with all printers. I have a HP, in the beginning when I first bought the printer, it came with a ink cartridges, it showed the levels. But after the ink was all gone, it showed empty ink levels. The best way to solve this is to ignore this. When you see that your paper is poorly printer, then your ink cartridges need changing.

Dell 946 new ink still says low ink


You can't. Certain cartridges are not able to indicate a fully charged cartridge after having been refilled. This is due to the fact that they have an ROM chip---Read Only Module--that is not programmable after it has been "used up" by indicating an empty ink reservoir.
