Question about Dell 810 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a Dell 810 All-in-one inkjet printer. After getting fed up paying Dell's high prices for replacement ink cartridges, I purchased a compatible ink cartridge from somewhere else. I worked fine and I had no problems printing. It started getting low on ink and all of a sudden I started getting "Replace cartridge" messages. I bought another Dell cartridge from Dell this time and installed it. Now the printer won't print and keeps popping up an "Incompatible Ink Cartridge" error screen/message. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer but toward the end of setup, the incompatible message popped up again and I can't use the printer. There is a Dell cartridge in the printer! I know (NOW) that I shouldn't have used a non-Dell cartridge but how can I fix this problem? I don't want to throw the printer away but it's looking like that may the solution right now. Any help?????
Well, first off ,it's dell's fault, not yours. Even Official Dell cartridges are temperamental at best. The cartridge error you are explaining is common with Dells. They even have what's called a marriage issue, meaning the cartridge will work in only one single printer. However, I'm not sure how to fix it. Sometimes, you can install a new one and the other cartridge you never touched gives you fits, and goofs up. I'd say get a new printer. Dell is increasingly getting more stingy with their ink, and truth be told, I don't think their quality (*lexmark makes dell, so stay away from them too) matches HP or canon. If you want the best cost per page, get a canon that has individual ink cartridges. They are easy to refill, and print a great picture. You pay more $$ up front, but you'll save a ton in the long run
