If you have access to a a voltmeter, check the voltage at the end of the power cable that plugs into the printer. If you can read the voltage that is usually printed on the power supply, then you have a printer problem.

Will not start


smor4u,

There is no reset or fuse to reset. You may need to get replacement power supply. If the computer is plugged into a power strip or surge protector you can bypass it and plug the system directly into a wall outlet and power up.
Power Supply Light-on the back of the computer.
The light is a Green Light by the power supply.
Power Supply light is lit by a signal in the power supply called Power_Good (PG).
If the Power Supply Light Led is not light up, the power supply is defective.
If you need to replace the power supply you can contact the Dell Spare Parts Department at 1-877-717-3355bsat4ube4gblqiaaaaasuvork5cyii= or click the link below.

When I print from the internet my copy prints my color comes out a different color I think it might be my black ink is off I have a dell 946 all-in-one printer.


Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Can you copy a document under the glass? Black & White and color? Do they look ok?

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 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 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 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges .

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would that these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

Some power supplies have an independent switch to turn on the power supply before you can power up the computer from the front. Does yours have a switch on the back?

I havd a Dell Dimension 8200 that sometimes shuts down and power light turns yellow. I can usally open case and plug and on plug to get it to power back up. Recently replaced fans due to fan failure....


Thank for the detail, it really helps...
Most people forget about the power supply. If the power supply overheats, it will shutdown. When shutdown, it will cool off then operate again.

A power supply goes by WATT ratings, the average size power supply is now 450 watts for an average system and should cost around $60.

good luck and don't forget to vote.

HI, CHECK THE MEMORY CARD AND VIDEO CARD, FIRST UNPLUG THE PC REMOVE TWO SCREWS FROM THE RIGHT COVER SLIDE BACK THE COVER, YOU WILL SEE ON THE RIGHT UPPER SIDE OF THE MOTHER BOARD ONE OR TWO RECTANGLE LONG BOARD/CARD THAT IS MEMORY CARD, ON BOTH END IS A LOCKING TAB, BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE CARD ON LEFT HAND TOUCH THE MAIN FRAME OF THE PC THEN PUSH BACK THE LOCKING TABS TOWARD TO THE MAIN BOARD THE MEMORY BOARD/CARD WILL POP OUT.

Wont turn on


If the power cables are all the way in there and you don't, for example, have the power cable plugged into a wall outlet tied to a light switch that's off, or into a powerstrip that's off, ... this is a good time to figure out if you're under warranty. If you can't get power to it, there's not a lot of options or things to try.
