Take the plastic strip off the ink jet cartridge before putting the thing in the printer.  Check the ink jets to see if they are clogged.

Dell 720 printer won't print with color cartridge. I put a new color and B&W cartridge in and doesn't print. If I take the color one out, the B&W prints fine


I have the exact same printer and had to replace the print head. This dell 720 is a discontnued model and may or maynot be worth the $35 fix. the issue is the print head gets clogged up prematurely in these 720 series dell paperwights.

the best course of action:

1. purchase priont head
2. or buy a new printer

You can try print head cleaning kit but you may be wasting you time and money on the ket because it does not work 100 percent of the time.

thanks for your question, i would thank you for your ratings and feedback in advance!

Dell 720 printer


Delete the printer icon and disconnect the USB cable. Restart the laptop, reconnect the USB cable to see if your laptop recognizes the printer. If so, install the printer driver. If not, probably USB cable or port issue. Hope this helps.

Dell 720 Printer not printing envelopes.


I got the printer to print envelopes again. I completely uninstalled the printer, then reinstalled it by simply pluging the USB connection in. After I had first uninstalled it after the envelope problem started I had been using the 720 printer CD to reinstall it, and it still wouldn't print envelopes. I looked for and found the printer installition instructions and saw that I didn't need the CD to install it. (It was causing a software conflict). The Dell 720 Printer came with my Dell Dimension E310 PC new and the printer software was already on the hard drive. All I had to do was plug in the USB cable, and the printer was up and running like new again. Don't forget, if you don't want Dell to monitor your printer use, DO NOT check the box to allow that when it comes up during installation, other wise you'll get that icon showing up. Hope this helps. Chuck
