Double check to see if the cartridges that came with your machine are really the correct ones. And if they are then make sure they are snapped in securely as they must make a solid contact to read the cartidges. Also make sure the drivers and software are properly installed onto your computer.Also make sure that the tape that is usually on the cartridges to protect them in handling and shipping are removed before installation.

i had the same problem! I replaced two cartidges at once and one of the lights continued to stay red,The red light stayed on and therefore the printer would not print !!!!!! I decided to fool the printer-----I took the cartridge out and inserted into my chip resetter and then back into the printer--bingo worked like a charm.....I noticed the same type of problem when I changed ink cartidges befor when I was using different types of ink.
I think that the printer doesnot always know that there is still ink in the cartridge that has been removed and then reinserted into the printer again even if its a new one. Using the chip resetter reprograms the cartridge. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. The chip resetter cost about nine dallars--buy one on line. good luck-----Glenn

Found the solution at
Try pressing down on the cartridges after inserting them and closing the top of the cartridge carriage. Worked like a champ on my R320 printer!
Cleaning the contacts on the cartridge with a soft tissue may help too.

i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.
also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.
also possible, bad printhead.

you better have your printer check by a qualified printer tech thus avoiding any further damage to the printer the printer head is the most likely problem to

Tips for a great answer:
1 Replace the Ink Cartridge that has failed.
2 If the message continues to appear, clean the electrical contacts
inside the Ink Supply Station (power OFF the Printer first).
3 If the message continues to appear after cleaning the Ink Supply
Station, replace the Ink cartridge again.

Open the Dell 926's front cover with the power on and wait for the cartridge carriage to come to a stop. Remove the ink cartridges by pressing on the tabs at the top of each cartridge. Check the cartridges to make sure you have removed all of the blue protective plastic film. Look for the "Dell" logo stamped into the cartridges' lids to ensure they are genuine cartridges.
Clean the shiny metal portions of the ink cartridges with a damp microfiber cloth. Allow each cartridge to dry completely.
Clean out any paper, staples or other debris that you may be able to see, then reinsert the cartridges into their appropriate slots. Put the black ink cartridge into the left slot and the color cartridge into the right slot. Make sure both click back into place.
Close the Dell 926's front cover and turn off the printer. Unplug the power cord and USB cable from the printer for five seconds, then reconnect them.
If your Dell 926 fails to recognize the print cartridges after following the above instructions,
take it to a repair shop for servicing.
Good Luck and Happy Printing
