Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

I have a Dell al in one center prrinter Photo 924 and it is worthless and wasteful. The problem is that when I print a sentence on a white page, the sentence appears OK, but antire page is pitch black. At this rate, I can only print a few pages per cartridge. What the hell is going on with my Dell printer?

    Not exactly. The black sentence is reprinted black on a small white field. But the rest of the page comes pitch black. (Normaly, only the print should be black, the rest of page white).

    In another case. when I print a book page, the print appears ok, but there are wide margins around tainted black.

    I don't know what pdf means, Sir/Madam. If it means, say, a book page, and I uncheck "Print Color as black", do I have to check something else, or leave all blank? Moreover, the problem appears not only for book pages; it appears when I print only one sentence. (the sentence is on a small white field, but the rest of the page is black).

    Now I've noticed that I do not have "Print color as black" you mentioned. I only see: Color Document, Color Photo, Black & White Document, Black & White Photo. So I cannot uncheck what you tell me to uncheck!

    I do not have anu problem with drivers. My problem is only ink related. We do not seem to get any closer to the solution of this simple problem. If the drivers were bad, or malfunctioning, all the printing would be bad. My problems so far appears only when I print two things: book pages, and loose sentences. (one two sentences on a regular page). If I print this post, for example, it will appear on a white field same size as here. The rest of the page will be black (a lot of ink wasted). If this doesn't suggest a solution to you, forget it.
    Thank you. George.

Would you mind if I ask you few questions? I need to know the operating system installed on your computer, the program from which you are printing (Ms-word, or photo or etc..etc.). Is this a new printer or have you been using it without any problem?

This must be a Vector issue, not the cartridge, nor the printer, if it's the cartridge problem, you'll get a full black or greenish without seeing anything or you may get only blank page. Or if it's printer's problem, you'd see unusual activities like zigzag, or fussy printouts.

If you don't mind, let me know so that I can help you fix it.

Thanks and awaiting.

    You're printing pdf documents, right? In that case, on the Print window uncheck the "Print color as black" checkbox.

Missing lines of print


hello
You either have to change the ink cartridge or try to clean the ink cartridge nozzles as described in the user manual;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/924/en/om_en/om_en.pdf
On page 54 it states the following:

To clean the ink cartridge nozzles:
1 Load plain paper. For more information, see "Loading Paper" on page 19.
2 In Windows XP, click Start-Control Panel-Printers and Other Hardware-Printers and
Faxes.
In Windows 2000, click Start-Settings-Printers.
3 Right-click the Dell Photo AIO Printer 924 icon.
4 Click Printing Preferences.
The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.
5 Click the Maintenance tab.
6 Click Clean Print Cartridges.
7 If the print quality has not improved, click Print Again.
8 Print your document again to verify the improved print quality.
9 If you are not satisfied with the print quality, wipe the ink cartridge nozzles, and then print
your document again.

hope this helps.

Won't print but few lines til black fades out


It pretty much sounds to me like you have "outdated" or old cartridges. Are you using the photo setting to print photos? Before you purchase more expensive cartridges do a head cleaning! Good luck.

Dell 924 all in one will not print magenta


run a nozzle clean, perform the following steps:
  1. Verify the All-In-One Printer 924 is powered on and connected to a computer.
  2. Verify that the paper support (input tray) has clean, plain white paper loaded.
  3. Press the Menu button.
  4. Press the Down button until Mode: Maintenance appears on the LCD screen.
  5. Press the Menu button.
    The Dell 924 Maintenance Menu appears on the LCD screen.
  6. Press the Down button until Clean Cartridges appears on the LCD screen.
  7. Press the Start button.
    The AIO 924 prints the cleaning page. This process cleans the ink cartridges and resolves many print quality issues.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
