An unsupported black toner cartridge is installed


Some replacement cartridges require a new "chip" be installed to tell the printer that the cartridge is a match. I would check with New Egg and see if they forgot to send the chips, if required. I don't know of a manual bypass to the system.

My Dad bought new ink cartridges ( black and color) and installed them in the printer and it is not registering that they are installed. What are some things I should check for and how can I fix this????


After installing new ink cartridges in your Dell all-in-one 926 printer, you may receive an error message telling you the print does not recognize the new cartridges. Refilled or third-party cartridges, which Dell does not recommend using with the 926, often trigger the error message. You may also receive this error after you have been using the same ink cartridges for some time. Whether the cartridges are new or not, the error can be caused by a number of sources. Following the steps below should clear up print cartridge problem.

  • 1

    Open the Dell 926's front cover with the power on and wait for the cartridge carriage to come to a stop. Remove the ink cartridges by pressing on the tabs at the top of each cartridge. Check the cartridges to make sure you have removed all of the blue protective plastic film. Look for the "Dell" logo stamped into the cartridges' lids to ensure they are genuine cartridges.

  • 2

    Clean the shiny metal portions of the ink cartridges with a damp microfiber cloth. Allow each cartridge to dry completely.

  • 3

    Clean out any paper, staples or other debris that you may be able to see, then reinsert the cartridges into their appropriate slots. Put the black ink cartridge into the left slot and the color cartridge into the right slot. Make sure both click back into place.

  • 4

    Close the Dell 926's front cover and turn off the printer. Unplug the power cord and USB cable from the printer for five seconds, then reconnect them.


  • If your Dell 926 fails to recognize the print cartridges after following the above instructions,

    take it to a repair shop for servicing.


    Good Luck and Happy Printing

    DELL PHOTO 926- ALL IN ONE- ERROR CODE- "UNSUPPORTED INK CARTRIDGE" HOW TO FIX THIS?


    Follow the below instructions

    1. Lift the printer unit up. Position the scanner support beam between the tabs to hold the printer unit lid open. The ink cartridge carrier moves to the loading position in the center of the printer.

    2. Press down on the lever in front of the right and left ink cartridges lid. The lid opens and raises up.

    3. Remove the color and black ink cartridges from the carrier. Inspect the cartridges to ensure that it is compatible with the Dell 926 printer. The proper cartridge is called Dell 926 Standard Capacity Color Ink and Dell Standard Capacity Black Ink.

    4. Examine the cartridges for any tape over the ink nozzle. New cartridges have a strip of tape covering the bottom of the cartridge that must be removed before installing into the printer.

    5. Insert the cartridges into the carrier so the label is on top with the color logo side going in first. Press the lid down to snap it into place.

    6. Push the scanner support bar back to release it. Lower the printer unit until it is closed.

    7. Turn the printer off. Restart the computer. Turn the printer on. If the error message appears again, the cartridges may be defective and needs to be replaced.

    I hope this clears up your problem.


    Good Luck and Have a Nice Day!!

    Ink cartridge problem?


    Try to re-seat the ink cartridge.

    1. Press your printer's button to position the ink heads for replacement
    2. Then gently pull out the problematic ink cartridge.
    3. Turn the printer OFF to reset the printer's memory.
    4. After about 3 minutes, turn ON your printer and it should now ask for the missing ink cartridge.
    5. Now gently put on the problematic ink cartridge in place.
    6. Let the printer re-charge the inks and clean the ink heads afterward through the printer's maintenance program installed in your computer. (Go to "Printer's and Faxes, right click on your installed printer, then click "Printer's Preferences. Go to the "maintenance tab" and click on something like Print Head Cleaning.)
    Just give it a try.

    Try this...shut down the printer. Insert new cartridge, let the printer cycle out with new cartridge. then reboot the computer. This should solve the problem. The cache in the printer will not cycle out. It wants to see the printer as a new entity

    How to install hp 21 cartridge into dell 926 printer


    Use only genuine cartridges with your printer. Printers these days have a built in sensor that can sense non compatible/generic/refilled cartridges and wont install them. It will only cause you more problems in the long run if you use a generic cartridges.

    Best bet is to buy genuine inks..
