Question about Dell Inkjet 720 Printer
I replaced the cartridge, and now it just prints a blank piece of paper
I had the same problem. What happened to mine is that the ink crusts up on the cartridge. Remove the black (or color) cartridge and take a paper towel dampened with warm water and wipe it over the the area where the ink is dispensed on the bottom of the cartride until ink seems to be flowing freely. Then pop it back into the printer and use it as normal.

I 've had this printer for four years, never used til now. Loaded new cartridges got color but no black ink. Put black cartridge in very hot water for several minutes changed the printing speed to high quality now it's working,

Don't buy Dell printers! It'll only give you headaches, so don't waste your money!
I'd rather buy EPSON, cheaper and never had problems with it....

I had the same problem with my printer printing blank pages a few days after I refilled the black ink cartridge. I put it in hot water for about 5 to 10 seconds then wiped it off with a dry q-tip and now its working fine. Just make sure you run the clean nozzle application for the Dell Solutions menu.

I found that envelopes may LOOK like they print with black, but are actually using color to make black. If you don't want to use up your color ink or have to replace it (which also should fix the problem) go to control panel, printers, dell720, printing preferences and put a check in the box that says print color images in black and white only. Reverse when you need to use color.

Some of these problems happen sometime when you need to clean your nozzle, you can do this by going to start on your computer, clicking control pannel, go to your printers, right click the printer you are using and go to prefrences. to the search thing and type nozzle, it should give you an option to clean the nozzle and run the tests and it will clean the nozzzle for you.

Take the plastic strip off the ink jet cartridge before putting the thing in the printer. Check the ink jets to see if they are clogged.
