My dell v313w printer gives the message that I need to replace cartridges even after I have put in new cartridges


Are you using Dell Series 21,22 ink cartridges?

Try Cleaning the Printhead on Dell AIO V313w, V515w, V715w, P513w, and P713W Printers

Troubleshooting Printhead Problems on the Dell AIO V313w, V515w, V715w, P513w, and P713W Printers

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 21, 22 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 21, 22 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 21, 22 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 21. 22 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 21, 22 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

Dell 944 instruction to install new ink cartridge


Replacing Ink Cartridges

CAUTION: Before performing any of the procedures listed in this section, read and

follow the safety information in "CAUTION: SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS" on page 9.

Dell ink cartridges are only available through Dell. You can order more ink online at

www.dell.com/supplies or by phone. To order by phone, see "Ordering Supplies" on page 2.

Dell recommends Dell ink cartridges for your printer. Dell does not provide warranty coverage

for problems caused by using accessories, parts, or components not supplied by Dell.

1 Turn on your printer.

2 Lift the printer unit, and position the scanner support between the tabs to hold it open.

The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

3 Press down on the ink cartridge lever to raise each ink cartridge lid.

4 Remove the old ink cartridges.

5 Store the cartridges in an air-tight container, such as the storage unit you received with

your photo cartridge, or dispose of them properly.

6 If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the

back and bottom of each ink cartridge.

7 Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the black or photo ink cartridge is secure in the

left ink cartridge carrier, and the color ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge

carrier.

8 Snap each lid closed.

9 Lift the printer unit, and hold the scanner support up while lowering the printer unit until
it is completely closed.

Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer


The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

Cartridge error 1203


First of all, please verify each cartridge carrier has an ink cartridge :
  1. Check to make sure the left cartridge carrier contains a black or photo ink cartridge.
  2. Check to make sure the right carrier contains a color ink cartridge.
  3. Remove each cartridge and examine it to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the contacts and the print head.
  4. Replace each cartridge in the proper carrier.
Step 2 :

Wicking the cartridges and cleaning the contacts on the back of the cartridge should be performed if the nozzle clean was performed and the quality was not satisfactory.
Wicking the Cartridge
  1. Ensure the printer is powered on.
  2. Lift the scanner unit.
  3. Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier (Figure 1).
  4. cartout922%281%29.jpg
    Figure 1: Removing the Cartridges from the Printer
  5. Take a clean, damp cloth and wipe the nozzle of the print cartridge from front to back (Figure 2).
  6. printer1.jpg
    Figure 2: Proper Cleaning Direction
    new_note.jpg Note: Never wipe the cartridges from side to side, as this causes cross-contamination in color cartridges.
Cleaning the Contacts
  1. Turn the cartridge so that you are looking at the contacts on the back side of the cartridge (Figure 3).
  2. cartridge_back_contacts.jpg
    Figure 3: Turning the Cartridge To View the Back Contacts
  3. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the contacts in the direction shown (Figure 4), so that no dust or other contaminants are visible.
  4. new_note.jpg Note: Do not use the same cloth that was used to clean the cartridge nozzles. This may cause more contamination on the cartridge.

  5. Clean the contact inside the printer with the dry cloth used to clean the cartridge contacts.
  6. Replace the cartridges in the carrier and close the scanner unit.
  7. Print the document again.
  8. If the print quality does not improve, repeat the steps for cleaning the nozzles and contacts up to two more times as needed.

  3. Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier
  4. Take a clean, damp cloth and wipe the nozzle of the print cartridge from front to back

  3. Clean the contact inside the printer with the dry cloth used to clean the cartridge contacts.
  4. Replace the cartridges in the carrier and close the scanner unit.
  5. Print the document again.
  6. If the print quality does not improve, repeat the steps for cleaning the nozzles and contacts up to two more times as needed.
Verify the Ink Cartridges Are Installed in the Proper Slot
  1. Remove the ink cartridges from the printer.
  2. Read the label on the side of both cartridges to identify which is color and which is black.
  3. Install the black cartridge in the slot on the left and the color cartridge in the slot on the right
  4. Close the ink cartridge lids and make sure they lock in place.
I hope it helps!!!

Changing ink cartridge in dell photo 966


It's probably located under the scanning bed.
Look for another section break below the scanning bed.
Lift it up. The print cartridges should be inside.
