Re: incompatible print cartridges?
just click on them to say ok, and accept the unsupported cartridges ( if applicable ) do you get the choice.
certain printers, have an option in printer prefs, to change cartridges. check the cartridges are the same ( or compatable )
if the cartridges have a chip fitted, they need to be reset if recently filled.
hope this helps mike @ Compurepair.

Some older print cartridges are not compatible even if your model is listed on label. I'm talking a few years difference. The printer knows this and that is what the error is telling you. Make sure you have the right number in the right slot.
If you receive an error message that tells you that you have an
unsupported cartridge, then you need to remove the cartridge. After
installing the appropriate type of ink cartridge you should no longer
receive the error message and you can then perform a print test. Instruction on how avoid unsupprted cartridge message.

What you will see When a cartridge is inserted, an Unsupported Cartridge error message is displayed on the printer operator panel. Affected printers This issue affects printers sold exclusively in the Dixon Store Group (DSG) in Europe and in Circuit City in the U.S. NOTE: The cartridges for these printers are sold exclusively in these stores or on their websites. Explanation The printers listed in the table below are compatible with a #2 cartridge (in single cartridge printers) or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges (in two-cartridge printers). They do not support the standard color 28A 35, and Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges. If the standard color 28A 35 or Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges are used in these printers, they will fail to print and the printer will post an Unsupported Cartridge error message. Solution Lexmark recommends using either a #2 cartridge for single-cartridge printers or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges in two-cartridge printers.

Nowadays, the cartridges have a microchip installed to assure you are not using "unauthorized" ink. Maybe the chip is defective. try replacing it with another cartridge and take that one back to the store for an exchange.
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
