Question about Dell 946 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I bought remanufactured ink cartridges for my Dell 946 printer. When the reserve tank screen pops up, there are no boxes around the "continue printing" and "cancel printing" options. It won't let me click on these so I can start printing. The only way to get rid of this screen is to restart the computer.

Ink cartridges are made in such a way that they have electronic parts which communicate with the printer to get the correct information in order to work.
did you purchase from dell or retailer. did you get the exact part number and not a just look alike cartridges.
Also try reinstalling the drivers by removing them and installing again, scan the pc for registry errors before and after uninstalling and again after installation of the drivers with a programme such as uniblue registry booster or tuneup utilities to clear your pc or errors.
good luck

Unplug the power, Take the ink out of the carrier. Turn it on and see if it asks for it. The machine is not seeing the ink cartridges.

Left ink cartridge incorrect. It is the right ink


A trick which may work is cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer.

Make sure you've switched it off first, I'd try gently buffing with a soft dry cloth first.

HP reccommend using distilled water and cotton buds, but not alcohol based cleaning fluids.

Allow the water to evaporate before replacing cartridge and switching on.

My dell 924 printer shows right cartridge incorrect and I just had both cartridges refilled what is wrong?


I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges through amazon.com. I got 4 for the price of 1 through Dell. After installing the first cartridge, it printed for a few days and then I got the same message "left cartridge incorrect". Unfortunately, I did not read the piece of paper that came with my cartridge that says "STOP" read this before you install the cartridge.
I had to throw out the cartridge that I had just installed and put in a new one and follow these steps:
1. If you recieve a pop-up message indicating that the cartridge has been depleted or a low ink level warning, please disregard.
2. Check "Don't display this dialog again" and click "ok" or "continue printing" if necessary.
3. In the printer status window, since you have already ordered ink, do not click the "order ink online" button. If you have the option, check "I have ordered my ink, please don't remind me again." If not, close the window and continue printing.

I'm not sure why, but these instructions were vital to getting my remanufactured cartridges to work.

I am posting this reply to hopefully help out the next person that has this problem. Unfortunately, I lost a perfectly good ink cartridge because I failed to read the instructions the first time. But the next one worked just fine when I followed the instructions. Good luck!

Won't print with one cartridge


I can get my 946 to print with just a black cartridge, as long as I select black and white printing (there is an error message on the PC but I can just select 'continue'). But with just a photo cartridge (i.e. a combined black and colour one) it won't work - looks the same, but the 'continue' option doesn't work.

Hp 5550 print cartridge light flashing.power light on,not flashin


All HP ink cartridges are dated. If you are using the remanufactured ones the date is not changed and will not work properly at all. By HP ink only and you will never run into this again.

I just put a new cartridge in my dell AIO 946 printer but it still says the ink level is low.


well this always happens with all printers. I have a HP, in the beginning when I first bought the printer, it came with a ink cartridges, it showed the levels. But after the ink was all gone, it showed empty ink levels. The best way to solve this is to ignore this. When you see that your paper is poorly printer, then your ink cartridges need changing.

Dell 946 new ink still says low ink


You can't. Certain cartridges are not able to indicate a fully charged cartridge after having been refilled. This is due to the fact that they have an ROM chip---Read Only Module--that is not programmable after it has been "used up" by indicating an empty ink reservoir.

Printer goes throught the motions of printing, but what comes out is a clean page - no ink


Some of them do. Try going into the printer properties and disabling bi-directional support. This will not allow the printer to check. HP has set some printers to not function if its disabled, but hopefully yours is not one of them.

Ink Cartridge


Lexmark/Dell info
Before you buy a remanufactured Lexmark or Dell inkjet cartridge please carefully read and understand the following:
The more recent ranges of remanufactured colour Lexmark and Dell ink cartridges have been remarkably unreliable - the failure rate being massively higher than all other remanufactured goods we supply. Our remanufactured HP's, Canon, and older Lexmark/Dell ranges remain very reliable.
At seems almost certain the micro-electronics in these cartridges have been developed in the factory to ensure failure at a given point. THE MODELS MOST LIKELY TO CAUSE PROBLEMS ARE THE LEXMARK No1, No2, No3, No29, No33, No35 and No43, AND THE DELL MODELS TO FIT PRINTERS 922/924/942/944/962/964 and Dell printers sold in the last 12 months. For some reason the problems seem to be with colour cartridges - black units remain reliable.
On the reverse of a brand new Lexmark 29 colour cartridge box (in print so small it's almost impossible to read) it says: "THE PATENTED PRINT CARTRIDGE CONTAINED INSIDE IS LICENSED FOR A SINGLE USE ONLY AND IS DESIGNED TO STOP WORKING AFTER DELIVERING A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF INK. A VARIABLE AMOUNT OF INK WILL REMAIN IN THE CARTRIDGE WHEN REPLACEMENT IS REQUIRED." In plain English this means the cartridge will certainly fail - even when there is ink inside.
Although this is not printed on the boxes of certain other models, the high failure rate suggests similar technology is deployed. A perfectly good remanufactured cartridge can be installed, and used - albeit temporarily. Suddenly and without explanation, an error message "UNSUPPORTED CARTRIDGE" appears, and the cartridge refuses to work ever again. Most will almost certainly end up in landfill.
