SOURCE: Dell 942 AIO printer cartridge problem

Was your replacement cartridge a new dell product? If it was, the sensor on the prnter should recognize it as new and reset the indicator to full. If, however, the cartridge was refilled, remanufactured, or otherwise an off brand, the ink indicator will show it to be empty. Just ignore and use the printer as normal -- it will print just fine, but you may need to press the select button to get it to start printing the first page.

I would recommend cleaning off the contacts where the cartridge is loaded as well as the any other spots to see if maybe there is just something on the contacts.

Tip

How to change an ink cartridge on the Brother MFC-240C


The Brother MFC-240C uses an individual cartridge for each color (black, yellow, cyan, and magenta). When one of the colors is out of ink, the printer will tell you to replace the ink cartridge. To replace a cartridge, follow the steps below.

All four cartridges are located on the right front side of the printer, behind a cover. Pull the cover forward from the side, where there is a slight cutout for you to grab. When the cover falls forward, you'll see the ink cartridge holders.

For whichever ink cartridge you are replacing, push down on the purple handle for that color. The ink cartridge holder will open and fall forward, revealing the ink cartridge itself. Push down on the cartridge holder and the cartridge should pop toward you a little bit. Grasp the cartridge and remove it.

Open the new cartridge and remove it from its wrapper. Discard the yellow cover, unless you plan to use it for the old cartridge.

Insert the new cartridge into the correct slot (from left to right: black, yellow, cyan, magenta) so that the word "brother" is right-side up and located toward the top of the cartridge. Once it is most of the way in, push the ink cartridge holder up by the purple handle until it snaps into place. Then close the ink cartridge cover.

If you were out of ink, the machine should recognize the new cartridge and perform its calibration. If it doesn't automatically recognize it, it will ask if you have changed one or more of the cartridges. Press "1" for Yes.

Once you have printed a test page with all four colors to verify that everything is working, either discard the old cartridge in the trash or save it to recycle. But don't get rid of it until you are sure the new cartridge is recognized and working.

DELL PHOTO 926- ALL IN ONE- ERROR CODE- "UNSUPPORTED INK CARTRIDGE" HOW TO FIX THIS?


Follow the below instructions

  1. Lift the printer unit up. Position the scanner support beam between the tabs to hold the printer unit lid open. The ink cartridge carrier moves to the loading position in the center of the printer.

  2. Press down on the lever in front of the right and left ink cartridges lid. The lid opens and raises up.

  3. Remove the color and black ink cartridges from the carrier. Inspect the cartridges to ensure that it is compatible with the Dell 926 printer. The proper cartridge is called Dell 926 Standard Capacity Color Ink and Dell Standard Capacity Black Ink.

  4. Examine the cartridges for any tape over the ink nozzle. New cartridges have a strip of tape covering the bottom of the cartridge that must be removed before installing into the printer.

  5. Insert the cartridges into the carrier so the label is on top with the color logo side going in first. Press the lid down to snap it into place.

  6. Push the scanner support bar back to release it. Lower the printer unit until it is closed.

  7. Turn the printer off. Restart the computer. Turn the printer on. If the error message appears again, the cartridges may be defective and needs to be replaced.

I hope this clears up your problem.


Good Luck and Have a Nice Day!!

Replaced ink cartridge still shows ink low needs to be replaced but is printing? Can it be reset?


  1. Remove your current empty cartridge from your Dell printer. Turn on your printer and lift the cover and top half of the unit. You can suspend it in place by lifting the blue plastic lever and securing it to hold up the top of the printer. At this point the ink cartridges should move to the center of the printer and be easy to access. Follow the instructions locate on your printer to remove the cartridges. You can do this by pressing on the blue tab to remove the colored cartridge or the black tab to remove the black cartridge. Once you press the tab, the cartridge cover will pop open. Carefully pull out the exposed cartridge from it’s setting. Save the empty cartridge so it can be refilled.
    Remove the sticker from the newly refilled Dell ink cartridge. Follow the directions on the opened printer to insert the cartridge. Hold the cartridge so the writing is on the top and the ink spot is on the bottom. Gently push it into the opened setting until it is securely in place. Close the cover of the cartridge holder by pressing down on it gently until it clicks into place. Remember that the black cartridge goes into the black setting and the color cartridge goes into the blue setting. Close the top of the printer. You will hear the ink cartridges move back into place.
  2. Test your newly refilled Dell ink cartridge and load your printer with paper.Print a document so either in color or black and white (depending on the type of cartridge you had refilled). Review your printed document to make sure the color is consistent and you are pleased with the outcome.
    Repeat whenever you run out of ink.

I bought a ink cartridge for my dell 942 printer. The box at staples says its for a 942 (it's the "offical" dell ink) but when I try to install it, it won't "snap" into place.


compare your old 942 cartridge with the one you just bought, if they're the same type then try putting the cartridge again, make sure that you have taken out the sticker on the cartridge copper contacts then put it in the right way. otherwise, have the cartridge replaced by the store you bought it from or contact Dell tech support and have them do the replacement.

How do i eject the ink carrier?


hi there,

  1. Look at the Epson printer's LCD screen to see the ink levels for each cartridge. If your cartridge is completely empty, simply press the "Color" button. If your cartridge has a low ink level, press "Setup". Hold down the button on the upper left side of your LCD screen until the words "Replace Ink" appears, then press the "Color" button.
  2. Wait until you see the words "Open the scanner" on the LCD screen. Then lift open the printer top by pulling up on the side grips next to the scanner unit. Make sure that the scanner lid remains closed. The ink cartridge holder should move to the far right of the printer.
  3. After the cartridges have completely stopped moving, pull the cover of the ink cartridge holder up and toward you. Press in the tab of the cartridge you need to replace. Lift the cartridge straight up to pull it out of the holder.
  4. Unwrap the replacement cartridge and insert it securely into the holder. Press straight down until the cartridge snaps into place.
  5. Close the cartridge holder cover and make sure it clicks into place. Close the scanner unit and wait while the printer charges the new replacement cartridge. Wait until the word "Charging" disappears from the LCD screen before using your printer.
Do not turn off your Epson printer while the "Charging" message is still on the LCD screen because this may cause your inks to not fully charge. Turn off your printer only if there has been no response for over five minutes.
Clean up any ink spills with soap and warm water.

Replacement ink cartridge: Black (T048120); Cyan (T048220); Magenta (T048320); Yellow (T048420); Light Cyan (T048520); or Light Magenta (T048620)

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

Thanks

Dell 942 all-in-one printer problems.


The problem is simple. Try inserting your old in cartridges. If the old ones work, the ink cartridges are defective. Contact Dell and get these replaced.
Otherwise the printer has a problem. try cleaning the metal contacts of the ink cartridge and the ink carrier.
