Question about Dell 948 All-In-One InkJet Printer

I have been refilling my own printer cartridges and now the cartridges have a "?" on them, a notice saying cartridges missing, and it will not print. I don't want to purchase expensive Dell ink cartridges, suggestions?

HI,
Regarding the resolution couple of information that I would like to share:
I have noticed quite a lt of times that over a period of time, some of the contacts get covered or partially covered with ink droplets... try cleaning the contacts on the cartridge and the carriage with a q-tip and water (wipe dry with another before putting it in again) and see if that helps any.

You also need to check if you have inserted the black or photo cartridge in the left cartridge carrier and a color cartridge in the right carrier.

Could be a case of a bad sensor as after refills the sensor seem toget jammed resulting in the error message.

    Hi,

    A great bit of information that I found from one of the forums:

    The best way to fix it would be to purchase new cartridge snap-down levers (the levers that snap down inside the dell printer to hold the cartridges, blue for color and black for black)

I just installed two refilled lexmark cartridges color and black yet printer is reading black cartridge missing and color cartridge missing. I am unable to print


Refilled cartridges become unreliable and can damage your printer - you will need to try an original Lexmark cartridge before considering replacing your printer.

My lexmark X5410 will not accept the black and colored refilled ink cartridges from walgreens. It keeps reporting that the right cartridge is missing.


If you have refilled the cartridges 28 and 29, it's pretty normal that your printer won't print. Those cartridges are not for refill (they can be refilled, but won't work once the printer says they are empty). If you have refilled a 28A and 29A and it doesn't recognize the one of the cartridges, try removing them and clean the electric contacts with a dry cloth. Put them back in. If that doesn't help, I suggest you buy a new cartridge.

Missing ink cartridge


Try cleaning the contacts. Ink/dust/dirt will prevent a cartridge from being recognized.

I bought refilled cartridges on Ebay for my Dell 924 Inkjet, they are in place, but the printer says cartridges missing and wont print anything. Help!


You've got dead electronics. Since you bought off Ebay, I'm assuming you can't return them. Welcome to the wonderfully scandalous world of on-line ink refills. You need to get new refills or new Dell brand cartridges for your printer to print. I recommend Cartridge World stores for refills because they test the electronics on their cartridges before they are sold and with their 100% satisfaction guarantee getting replacements or a refund is easy.

Refilled cartridge for Lexmark 2600 InkJet and it says it needs a new cartridge, it is the worst printer ever!!!!!!!!!! What should i do now?????????????


Hi, this is common for a Lexmark. They won't recognize a cartridge that has been remanufactured or refilled. All you can do is ignore the warning and go ahead and print your job. Use the cartridge until you notice a deterioration in print quality, then replace it. If this helps you, then please rate the answer. Thanks! Hal

Printer won't print-says color cartridge is missing and it is there


Just a shot in the dark, was it a refilled ink cartridge. I know HP has a problem detecting the remanufactured cartridges from time to time. And too, if it is not refilled cartridge perhaps you just have a bad cartridge.
Oh, of course Julie remembered to pull the tape off of the bottom of the ink cartridge, correct?
Hope this did some good, please leave rating,
thank you kindly.

We have an issue of missing or replace yellow cartridge. Please feel free to contact the HP support for replacement of the printer, if the printer is in warranty status. HP would replace the printer.
