SOURCE: dell 922 printer alignment problem-

try this...

Aligning Ink Cartridges Your printer automatically aligns the ink cartridges when they are installed or replaced. To verify your ink cartridges are aligned, you can print an alignment page. After you close the printer unit, press the Menu button. The alignment page begins printing. During printing, the operator panel display reads Alignment Page Printing. When complete, the message reads Auto Alignment Complete. Your ink cartridges are now aligned for optimal print quality.
You may also need to align ink cartridges when characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin, or when vertical or straight lines appear wavy.
To align the ink cartridges:

  1. Load plain paper. For more information, see Loading Paper.

  2. Click Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo AIO Printer 922® Dell Printer Solution Center.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab

  4. Click Align to fix blurry edges.

  5. Click Print.

The ink cartridges align when the page prints.


If this helps you plz rate this fixya. Thank you kindly. If you need more help post it & I'll be glad to do what I can.

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartidges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat

SOURCE: Dell V305w Printer Alignment problem.

In my case this happened with black cartridge out of ink, colour cartridge low; replaced black: had permanent alignment problem, though test print looked OK; wouldn't print black. Replaced colour cartridge, then it all worked OK, straightaway!

Hi

I believe the the carriage of the ink cartridge had jammed. Open the cartridge door and turn off your printer. Move the print head from left to right and from right to left. Close the printer door and try to print again if the error message disappear.

Please let me know if you need more help

Dell v305 printer allignment problem


Hello Michelle,

You are using Dell Series 9 ink cartridges, correct?

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 9 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 9 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)

It's possible to get a Dell Series 9 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Power on the printer. Open the printer and take out the Dell Series 9 Black cartridge. make sure all the tape is off the cartridge and put the cartridge back in. Now do the same for the Dell Series 9 color cartridge.

Dell Series 9 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 9 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

Black cartridge = black side(left side) Color cartridge = color side(right side)

Photo cartridge = black side(left side) Color cartridge = color side(right side)

It is possible to get a Dell Series 9 cartridge with a bad sensor. Contact the place of purchase for a replacement.

Black lines (bars) through anything I print in black ink. Printer is a dell v305.


The printer needs to be cleaned and aligned. Go to start, devices and printers, open your printer, go to properties and there should be some kind of a maintenance tab. You will want to align the cartridges and clean the cartridges. It might take several times. Please let me know if that helps. If not, we'll have to troubleshoot further.

Some ink s do not have the right chips on them to talk to the printer for you. you have to buy cartrightes that are from the manufactor or it will not work. Compatiable inks are not that way. get new inks for that printer.

My printer wnt work i boght new ink but it wont print


Hi

whenever you put new ink cartridges,your printer prints an alignment sheet
if your printer isn't printing,
one of the concern could be that it didn't print the alignment,uninstall the cartridges and put them back again.

also try printing an alignment sheet using the printer driver located in the control panel,printers and faxes
once you go into the properties and click on the device settings and click on service this device you will get option to print alignment sheet
this should work
