compare your old 942 cartridge with the one you just bought, if they're the same type then try putting the cartridge again, make sure that you have taken out the sticker on the cartridge copper contacts then put it in the right way. otherwise, have the cartridge replaced by the store you bought it from or contact Dell tech support and have them do the replacement.
There's really no help to offer except to suggest you either buy original replacement cartridges or to switch to another vendor if you want to keep using refurbs. The refurbished cartridges often don't work, or work unreliably. I personally have had trouble even with the refurbs sold by the big office stores. About all you can do is check the vendor's warranty and see if you're eligible for replacement cartridges.
if the cartridge is chipped, it will still be recognised as empty, since the cartridge uses a backwards counter to estimate the amount of left-over ink. there are tools to reset the chip on an ink cartridge to refill it, which you can normally buy in the shop where you bought the refill-kit (if not already included). please note that the cartridge may not warn you again about being empty. when print quality deteriorates, refill. if print quality stays bad (even after a refill), replace the cartridge with a new (original) one.
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.
