I have the exact same printer and had to replace the print head. This dell 720 is a discontnued model and may or maynot be worth the $35 fix. the issue is the print head gets clogged up prematurely in these 720 series dell paperwights.

the best course of action:

1. purchase priont head
2. or buy a new printer

You can try print head cleaning kit but you may be wasting you time and money on the ket because it does not work 100 percent of the time.

thanks for your question, i would thank you for your ratings and feedback in advance!

SOURCE: won't print black!

I had same problem after refilling a cartridge, tried wiping head with damp cloth...kinda worked. I finally put my mouth over the refill hole and blew gently into it to create some pressure to unclog the cartridge. This worked very well for about a week. Then the problem recurred and I haven't had any luck getting black to print either.

SOURCE: dell 924 dell printer head ;error 1203;change

Hey do a power drain by removing all the cables from the rear of the printer and then hold the power button on the printer of 15-20seconds with all the cable out connecting the printer... Then power on the printer if you still see the error code message displayed on the printer display screen do a nozzle clean in the computer, check on if the printer prints the nozzle clean test page perfectly.If not remove the cartridges and clean the nozzle of the cartridges with a clean cloth and be careful so that you do not destroy the copper contacts, clean the same you see on the carrier(where you place on the cartridges). I think this should work.
If not call in technical support.

Dev,
Printer Technician.

How do I install the printer cartrige? I do not have the booklet...


  1. Turn on your printer.

  2. Open the front cover.

The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

  1. Press the tabs on the cartridge lids, then lift the lids.

  1. Remove the old ink cartridges.

  1. Store the cartridges in an air-tight container or dispose of them properly.

  2. If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.


NOTE: You can use your printer with one cartridge (color or black) at a time. To extend the life of your color cartridge and improve printing speed, install both a color cartridge and a black cartridge at the same time.
  1. Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the color ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier and the black ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

  1. Snap each lid closed.

  1. Close the front cover. The front cover must be closed to start a print job.

  1. Open the Dell Printer Solution Center by clicking Start® Programs or All Programs® Dell Printers® Dell Photo Printer 720® Dell Printer Solution Center.

  2. Click the Maintenance tab.

  3. Click Install a new print cartridge.

  4. Click Next.

  5. Select the type of cartridge you installed.

NOTE: Specify whether the cartridge is a new cartridge or an old cartridge (one that has been used before). If an old cartridge is incorrectly identified as New Cartridge in the Dell Printer Solution Center, ink levels may be incorrect.
  1. Click Next.

Dell 720 color cartridge doesn't seem to be printing with enough 'green'...all pics tinted red. New cartridge. Is is possible to balance the color any better?


Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle -- some of the ink-jets may be clogged, thus reducing the amount of ink reaching the paper.

Try "photo-quality" paper.

Dell 720 printer , new ink cartriges but prints blank pages


I know it sounds silly, but never underestimate the obvious.

Did you remove the plastic protectors from the cartridges?

Another solution maybe to return the cartridges to the store for an exchange. It has only happened once to me, but I exchanged the cartridge for another "new" one and it worked fine.

Good luck
