Have you tried unplugging the printer from the wall for 5 minutes to reset it? If that doesn't work you either have a defective ink cartridge or the printer is defective. Due to the very low prices of new printers replacing it in almost all cases is the cost conscious thing to do.
Often the ink cartridge is damaged where the connection takes place with the printer (this is usually the issue).
OR the printer needs to be reset. To reset the printer turn it off. Turn the computer off. Unplug everything. Wait one minute, plug everything back in. Turn the printer on first and then the computer. All printers made in the last 7-8 years have the feature that they completely reset when all connections are removed.
As soon as I started using recycled ink cartridges, I started getting a paper jam error on my printer. The control panel message instructs me to remove the back panel and clear paper jam. I've done this several times but there is no paper to clear and the message keeps coming back. I've tried turning of the printer and unplugging it to clear the memory, but that doesn't help. Could it be that the chip on the ink cartridge is messing with the printer's operating system?
Hi there Dell Printer 944 error message 1102 Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message Why does my Dell ink cartridge level still show up as "low ink" after refilling them? Dell ink cartridges have a sensor that reports the ink level as low once it reaches a certain level. The sensor can not be reset. If you refill an ink cartridge that previously reported low ink, it may print fine, but the sensor will always report low ink. Buying or replacing ink cartridges with new Dell cartridges will resolve the low ink message. Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems. This post is in no way a validation of refilling ink cartridges. Why my printer is reporting “low ink" after using refilled/remanufactured ink cartridges? Most ink cartridges have sensors that report the ink level.The “Low Ink” is usually the last sensor (fuse) before running out of ink. Since the sensors are fuses that open when the ink level drops, they cannot be reset.If you are using refill or remanufactured ink cartridges, the best thing to do is to disable “ink alerts” on the printer’s software so you don’t keep getting “low ink” messages. To disable “Ink Alerts” on Dell inkjet printers: 1.Open the Dell printer software (All-In One Center, Tool Box, etc) 2.Go to Settings 3.Advanced 4.More Options 5.In the “Appearance Mode, window, check “Never display the Printing Status window” and “Display the low ink alert only when the cartridges are almost empty. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Double check to make sure all the cables are securely plugged in. There is also probably a switch in the back of the printer, usually by where you plug in the power, that you might want to check. otherwise, unplug it and plug it into another outlet just to make sure the outlet on the power strip isn't bad. You may also want to try completely unplugging it from both the wall and computer, and then just plugging the power back and then the computer if that helps.
Take a l;ook at the slot where the cartridge goes. Does it have any dried ink or ink blobs. If so you can turn off the machine and unplug it and clean the slots with0a little rubbing alc0hol on a Qtip. At the same time, make sure that there ae no bent or broken wire holders and that the cartridge seats well. Also look at the cartridge itself. Is it leaking?
When you have finished this try turning off and unplugging your printer for several minutes and see if it will reset itself.
I hope this works for you, If not be sure to get back to us. Thank you for using Fix ya. i would appreciate a rating for this solution.
exchanged the black cartridge (57): the printer told me there was a problem with it, that I should remove it and re-insert it. I did, the ink button still blicks. After several efforts the printer started to work again, printed one document and then told me there was a problem with the colour cartridge. I removed it, re-inserted it several times. Finally a test page was printed - everything was okay.
Then the printer refused to print anything - the yellow LED lamp blicks continuously. Have turned the printer on and off, have also shut down the computer and re-started.
The only thing that will work now is the black cartridge, if I remove the colour one.
On the phone for an hour with those idiots in India, same exact problem. Here is what you do:
1: Unplug AC cord from back
2: Hold down the # and 6 key, plug in the powe cord and continue to hold the kes for 1 minute.
3. Printer will power off durning this time. Release the keys and plug in the power cord.
4. You may need to press the power button on. This will hard reset the printer. It will go throught the initialaztion process and suck your cartridges but should solve the problem.
If ink comes out of the ink nozzles on the cartridge then you probably just need to reset the printer page counter. Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an empty cartridge message appears and a blinking amber light will display on the printer. Hold the paper feed button down for 3-5 seconds, and that should override the counter.
If ink isn?t coming out of the ink nozzles then you may have an air pocket preventing the flow of ink. Try running your printer cleaning cycle a couple of times to see if that helps. Lastly you might try letting the cartridge site for 24 hours to let gravity try to fix it. As a last resort you can try unplugging your refill hole in the cartridge. If your cartridge ink is going to flow it will now, just be ready to re-plug the fill hole.
