Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

How do I attach the cartridge holder top? The springs and cover came off, nothing broken.

I have a hard time seeing well enough, to see how and what I do first to replace springs and cover back on. The printer cannot work without. Does the printer cover move further back than when just lifted up to change ink cartridges? It would help to see in there better. Thanks!

SOURCE: Dell 922 All In One Printer wont print

I have this exact same problem, but when I replaced the black ink cartridge it worked for 3 days. Now it isn't recognized. The printer icon has a big question-mark over the black ink cartridge. Replacing it with another cartridge does nothing.

My solution. Throw out the darn thing and buy a laser jet.  Paying for ink is too expensive anyway.

SOURCE: ink cartridge carrier jam

If possible, shut off the printer completely and manually move the ink carriage to where the cartridges can be swapped out. turn it back on and try again. try to see if some mechanism that holds the missing cartridge in place has swung down and is bumping into something, preventing the carriage from moving past a certain point.

SOURCE: How do I manually center the ink cartridges on my A960 ?

The ink cartridge had jammed the carrier and prevented it from moving. I stuck my little finger in the bottom of the carrier, pushed the cartridge up a bit, freed the carrier and was able to move it manually. I replaced the cartridge and all the messages went away. The printer now works as it should. Must have been a bad cartridge.

How do i refill my INK Cartridge ?

There are 2 distinct method
1) Black has a bladder
2) Color contains sponges - we need 3 sirenges with needle
to fill the Color cartridge with sponges - simply punch

COLOR CARTRIDGE

1. If you see the Cartridge turn it round and locate the filler holes by removing the plastic top cover of the cartridge.
You may need to pry plastic top or hole cover off using a thin metal blade.
please make sure that you do not damage the sensors on the back of the cartridge whilst doing this.

2.Using the picture(on the cartridge which shows you the 3 differedcolored spots), fill syringe with the corresponding color ink.

3. Insert the syringe into the correct hole of the color being filled and push all the way down.
Notes : You will feel resistance as there is a sponge inside.

So Slowly inject approximately 8ml of ink until you can just see the ink surface on the top of the sponge, any more and it is over-filled.
If this happens simply draw back on the syringe a little.

4. Rinse the syringe and needle thoroughly before proceeding then repeat the process for the other colors.

8. Re-attach the cover securely with adhesive tape and continue using the cartridge.




BLACK CARTRIDGE

1. Fill the syringe with approximately 20ml of black ink.

2.Push the syringe all the way into the filling hole and SLOWLY injectall the ink into the cartridge or until the reservoir is full.

3. Replace the cartridge and run 1 - 3 cleaning cycles as per printer instructions.

4. If necessary leave cartridge in printer for up to 24 hours. (This allows ink to flow to the print head).

The drum got loose because the one of the top drum springs got unhooked. The spring holder on the plastic drum cover is broken. It was noticed in time and turned off. So it seems that nothing else is...


will the plastic ring in the second ring move to the other ring . the danger is if you put the spring in the second ring the drum may not be line up straight when you look from the top (the motor may be further back) causing the motor and back to rub on the back plate when loaded might be better to drill new hole ?

Putting in the ink cartridge


It is a little hard for words to be easier to follow than pictures, but I will try to help. The connection is not as "concrete" as you might be accustomed to with other equipment, a there is not a box-like holder to place the cartridge in. Below, the "head" of the cartridge is the end with the ink openings.

When you lift the printer cover and it locks into place, the cartridge holder will move to the far left side of the printer. The cartridge fits into the right side of the cartridge holder, and what you probably see in the diagram as a holder is actually a depiction of where the cartridge will end up when it is properly positioned. It actually attaches at the back - along the back side (the head) for the ink nozzles, and at the top of the back to a small piece that juts out and has a V-like projection downward that snaps onto the cartridge and holds it in place.

When you have taken the tape off, hold the cartridge with the head tilted slightlty upward, at about a 20 degree angle. (Be careful NOT to put the cartridge in with the head downward.) Using your left hand, your thumb would be just under the front outer edge (facing you), and your index finger on top. Slide it in slowly on the right side of the holder until the head comes in contact with the strip for the nozzles. At this point, the top should also be contacting the top piece referred to above, just behind the V-like downward projection.

Move your index finger to the top of the machine just above the back of the cartridge area, and use your thumb to lift the front (the side facing you) up until it clicks. You should feel/hear it snap into place. Then you can proceed to close the cover and go on with your use/setup of the machine. Hopefully this explanation will help you enough to be able to understand how to get the cartridge in, especially with the pictures to supplement.

If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.

Hp Office jet print cartridge error


Remove the cartridge and look at the cartridge holder. There should be a spring sticking out from the right side of the holder. The spring on these often breaks loose and will not allow the cartridge to seat properly. (Look at the left holder and compare it to the right one. They should look alike.) If the spring is loose, meaning the holder is broken, the holder needs to be replaced. I've tried gluing the spring in place but did not have good luck with this.
