Hi,

Issues in color printer are many. The most common one is the non-printing of color prints. This issue might be due to corrupted or incompatible drivers in your printer. When the driver installed in a color printer is corrupted or not installed correctly it might lead to issues. So in order to solve this issue you need to install or replace the corrupted driver with a new powerful driver; or reinstall the driver since the issue might be due to wrong installation of drivers. get more information to fix printer not printing error hope this helps you.

Hi
There is a place in your driver when you go to print a docs there are some tabs there which will have Tools Tab you can clean heads from there, if heads not clean then try some tricks I used

Here.

Ok it got to be the heads blockage
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

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.

My Dell A920 prints blank paper.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Run cleaning utility


  • Clean the Ink Cartridge Nozzles
    • 1 Load printer paper into your Dell A920 Printer.
    • 2 Open the Dell Printer Solution Center on the computer. Click "Start," located in the bottom left corner of your computer. Select "Programs" from the menu displayed. Click "Dell printers." Click "Dell AIO Printer A920" and then click "Dell Printer Solution Center" to open the Dell Printer Solution Center.
    • 3 Click on the "Maintenance" tab and select the option that says, "Clean to fix horizontal streaks."
    • 4 Click "Print." This will print a nozzle print page, which forces ink through all of the nozzles to clean and unclog them.
    • 5 Print a regular document again to see if the print quality has improved. Repeat the cycle up to two more times to improve printing quality.

    Dell A920 cartridge stall error.


    Hi, I HAD the same problem, but not anymore!! I just opened the top to expose the "inside of the printeri" and checked the long clear band at the rear behind the print head. Make sure that the clear ribbon is NOT TWISTED. There is a small metal bar with a small extended part on the far left interior of the printer. Just make sure that the slot on the clear band is fitted on that extended part. This will put the print head back "on track" This worked for me!!

    Hoirizontal white lines and poor quality in black and white print on dell a920 inkjet printer


    If you are sure your ink cartridge is not empty, it may be worth running the head cleaner a few times then print a test page.

    Worth a try for nothing.

    Good luck.

    Flashing Green Light/ Computer can't communicate with printer......


    Hi. The flashing code signifies that there is a fault with the connection between the ink cartridge and the printer - usually because either the tape is still on the cartridge or maybe some glue from the tape still on the contacts. In my case, I think the cartridge was simply knackered, so I threw it away and opened yet another ink cartridge. It now works fine.

    If you want to test yours, simply take out both ink cartridges, and re-insert them one at a time. If you've put a working cartridge in the flashing will stop; if you've put the dodgy one in it'll still flash. Just replace the dodgy one.

    Hope this helps.

    Well, Yeah mine did the same thing!!

    And I got soooo fusy! and etc. But yeah okay go to the manul script and look for the ink Number then once you find the ink number go and buy the ink that has the same number of ink as yours!

    Then,
