Re: will not turn on

Probably a power supply issue...but make sure the plug works (the outlet on your wall).

My dell 924 printer has stopped working. I get an error message that there is no USB connection. All connections & USB cable are fine. For some reason this printer is no longer on a USB port - have...

It sounds like a issue with the hardware inside the printer. if possible try the printer on another PC, or try another USB Cable. Sometimes the cable can appear fine but can have small breaks inside it. You can also try your current cable on another persons printer to rule out the cable.
If you can not get the printer working on another persons computer I would suggest replacing it. it is cheaper than getting a tech to fix it.

I have a dell 924 printer and I cannot seem to find the right port for it. can you help me?

The system will assign the port. You can download the driver and manual for the 924 at

To connect the printer, connect the printer and computer using a USB cable, download and install the driver, turn on the printer. The system should sense the printer and install it so it can be used. Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.

Dell photo 924 is completely unresponsive. Power

Pitch it. There does not appear to be a firmware update. That would be the only thing that would have a chance of fixing this. Otherwise, the controller board is shot. The cost of repair is more than the printer, buy a new one.

I have just purchased and inserted two new cartridges in my Dell 924 and it continues to give me the Cartridge error #1203, any ideas?

error 1203 means ink overflow i think. Here are some solutions you can try:

Solution #1:
use a klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder. Sometimes ink is smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge.

Solution #2:
place your old cartrages back in and see it if works without giving you an error code. If so, return the new ones back to Dell because they are probably defective and Dell will replace them for you.

Solution #3
turn off printer. Remove AC power cord and USB cable from back of printer for 1 minute. Replug and retry. This actually should be your first step.

Hope this helps!

924 says that black ink cartridge not installed

Hmmm....that sounds to be an issue with the ink cartridges...

You might be using ink cartridges purchased other than Dell or Staples...since these are the two who sell Dell Ink.

If thats not true, then take out both the cartridges in the printer.

Lets isolate the issue

1. Try only Black cartridge on Color slot(right). If you get Install both ink cartridges error, then its an issue with the Black ink cartridges and if you get message that install Black ink cartridge then its an issue with the prrinter.

2. Now install only color cartridge on Black cartridges slot(left), If you get color cartridge missing then its an issue with the Black cartridges which you are using and if you get install both ink cartridges then its an issue with the black slot on printer.

3. If issue found to be with Black ink cartridge then wipe the Nozzles(bottom) of the ink cartridge with lint free cotton cloth from back to front 5-6 times.

4. Also try replacing the ink cartridges purchased only from Dell or from Staples. Purchased from somewhere else or refilled might not work.

5. If issue found to be with printer, then i would suggest you to purchase new printer then.

Hope this fix the issue

try using the old black cartridge to check for the error msg . if it doesn't give any error with the old one then its an issue with the new black cartridge .

i would recommend you to purchase a new cartridge thru dell , you will get a warranty of 2 years on the hardware error of the cartridges .

Dell AIO 924 - Can't get the Print In Black Only option to work

I had this problem. It's actually very easy to fix:

- Print -> Properties
- Go to "Advanced" tab
- "More options"
- Deselect "Use color cartridge for all black printing"
- Select "Use black cartridge to print black and white"
- Click "Ok"

You should be able to select the "Print in black and white" option now and stop all the frustration!
