I just bought a recycled ink cartridge from enviroinks.com (half-of dells prices) and these were their instructions. (I shortened them)
"Dell has changed their software so that recycled cartridges will read as low or empty.
Find your printer, right click and go to printing preferences, then 'Advanced Tab', then 'More Options', under 'Appearance Mode' make sure that 'Never display the printing status' is selected.
Also make sure that the options under 'Complete a Print' are left unchecked.
This worked for me until I downloaded an updated driver now it sounds like it's printing but it's a blank page.
I'm now going to un-install the printer all together and re-install it from disk and then follow the instructions above again.

Just got a new lenovo laptop and my dell 946 will not print anything from it. Not sure if it's a compatability problem?


Did you install the DELL printer-driver software onto the new laptop?

If you've lost that CD-ROM, access the manufacturer's web-site:

http://support.dell.com

and enter '946' and do a search for the device-driver software.

I have a Dell 946 printer that is a couple of years old. It has started printing crooked on the pages. I have done the alighnment and that did not fix the problem. Can you help?


probably no much you can do the correct the problem because The problems that users encounter while using a Dell printer
varies with the model. However the common problems all Dell printer models suffer from are their slow speed and faulty paper feed mechanism. Quality of prints varies from one model to another, but most of the models do not produce prints having very fine qualities. A Dell printer is particularly notorious for its poor and faulty feed mechanism. They tend to cripple the papers or take in large number of papers at a time and print parts of documents on each page. They keep on generating messages indicating lack of paper, no matter the paper is being supplied or not. Such a problem makes the printer absolutely useless
