Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The electronics on print cartidges are only good for a limited number of refills if any, they then will sometimes not be recognised or report the incorrect amounts, or not properly align....and this goes for aftermarket discount cartidges as well.

try to clean the cartridge on the copper side with tissue with and alcohol maybe the contact points doesnt meet or the cartidge itself is already defective. try also use an empty good cartridge just to to determine wich cartridge is defective.

Just unplug the printer from the back and plug it back in. Problem solved. I did this on my mother's printer and it worked like a charm for this same error msg and issue.

gently push a wooden cocktail stick in each hole and it will tell you. Presume the 926 cartridge are all the same and on mine the bottom left hole is yellow, bottom right is cyan and top is magenta

There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.

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