DELL AIO 966 Carrier belt detached from printer

The belt goes through the back of the ink carrier.

There is a spring somewhere that keeps tension on the belt with the white roller.

The belt itself hooks into the frame of the machine.

The drive belt on the inkjet carriage came off it's wheels.

You'll have to disassemble the printer, remove the bottom of the printer and turn it upside down to where the belt and underside of the ink carriage (where ink comes out) is exposed. Take the closest loop of the belt and insert it around the plastic piece attached to the carriage [see image]. Then reassemble the printer. If you aren't good at taking things apart and re-assembling them you may have a hard time with this. Also, you may severely damage your printer if you break something mechanical or electronic in the process. Don't blame me.ff8bdfe.jpg

Refilled Ink Cartridge on Dell 966 all-in-one,how do i reset it?

I had this same printer but never was able to reset it. It has some type of sensor on it. That will not let it reset. I was told to unplug it from the computer. Turn the printer off. Reboot the system and plug the USB connector back into it once the system is booted. You may also try to reinstall the printer driver. I also find out that when the printer software says that the ink is low, it really is not. So keep on printing. What I eventually had to do is get a HP. No problem with HP, I can get a refill and it works. Now that I am think about this. See if you can disable the ink monitoring option in the software.
I hope this helps.
Please rate.

Dell 966 doesn't recorgnise lexmark cartridges

I don't understand the printer message. Even though it may be "compatible" to a Lexmark, you may have to get the Dell cartridge because it will only recognize a Dell branded cartridge. At least try to reinstall the old one and see if you get the same message. If you do, then you may have a printer problem. If not, then the cartridge is the culprit.

Changing ink cartridge in dell photo 966

It's probably located under the scanning bed.
Look for another section break below the scanning bed.
Lift it up. The print cartridges should be inside.

Trouble installing ink cartridge


We've met several problem like this. Hope you can manage to look for the lock notch at the top of the ink tray, or it may be located beside of the tray holding the body of the ink cartridge. If you found out the lock notch is broken, you can revised by putting a piece of paper to tighten just enough to hold on the ink cartridge to pop-out.

Best regards,
