Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Here's a direct link to this printer's owner's manual:
I assume you performed the steps outlined in page 54 of this PDF file.
I would also suggest cleaning the contacts of the cartridge both on the cartridge & the carriage. Use an electric contact cleaner (non-oily) or isopropyl alcohol to do this.

Note: if the printer is out of warranty, and instead of getting a low ink message, the printer just fade out, then you have a dirty or clogged printhead. The printhead can be cleaned thoroughly by removing it from printer and soaking it into cleaning solution or isopropyl alcohol solution.
