Per Dell this is a problem with either the ink cartridge or the cartridge carrier. The only advice given is to reinstall the cartridges, disconnect the printer power then reconnect and turn on. If that doesn?t work the next step is to replace both cartridges with brand new, genuine Dell cartridges, not refills or equivalents. If that fails the next step depends on if your printer is over 1 year old. If it isn?t then I would contact Dell support immediately for a warranty replacement since the next steps involve taking things apart. Let us know how to proceed.

go to dell AIO center
click maintain/troubleshoot on the top
under trouble aio problems - click ink levels
click maintenace tabs
and then clean print cartridges and align print cartridges. then try printing a test page.
if this does not work, remove the cartridges and install them again.
let me know how it goes

Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.
Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.
After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.
If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.

SOURCE: cannot recognize ink cartridge
I have about 6 canon printers with a 3in 1 using PG40 and CL41. I have never encountered the problem you have. I have looked into some other sites and noticed a number if CLI-8 cartridges being replaced by Canon. I think there are only 2 probable problem areas, he cartridge or the software you are using. I suggest you call up Canon and complain about this problem. Seems like you got the printer 6 months or so ago. You should able to get to do something like replace the printer or cartridges. I'm assuming that you don't refill or have your cartridges refilled so the contact points should not be messy w/ ink. You can try cleaning the contact points on the cartridges and printer. But I'd call Canon and explain to them the situation and see if they can solve your problem. Solve I'm implying is to replace your cartridges or printer. Let me know if this helps.

This sounds like a typical Developer Drive failure. The Developer Drive for color is different that the black developer drive. This is why black can print fine, but colors are faint or non existant. see below,a recent bullitin about this exact issue from Dell. ( the ROS, is the printhead, and is located behind the 4 developers.
Print Quality Issue
1. Problem: - Color images are extremely faint or not produced, but black images are produced without any problem.
Resolution: - Replace Developer drive assembly (H6702) and clean ROS Window/Glass.
If you chose to persue this repair, you can probably find a replacement developer drive by doing either a google search for the part number listed ( H6702 ) or an ebay search for the same. We can also provide you with removal and replacement instructions.
