Question about Dell 924 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Low ink and also, paper carriage problem

I replaced my black ink cartridge yet my printer tells me the ink is still low. How do I fix this? I've turned off the printer and unplugged the adapter and took out the cartridges then replaced them after I turned the printer back on. It still says the same thing.
My other problem is that my paper carriage won't pull the paper into the printer when I'm printing something. I have to manually feed the paper in. What can I do to adjust the carriage for proper paper feed?
thanks for your help,
Lyn

You should be able to go to Dell.com for a solution and they will probably tell you to uninstall your printer softwear and re-install it and see if that solves the prolem.

Welcome to FixYa.
There should be a way to open the front cover of your printer where the ink cartridge will be exposed. Check for anything that stops the cartridge from moving. A common example is a piece of paper that got stuck. DO this while the printer is unplugged.
If you are having trouble opening the front cover of your printer, please reply back with the complete make and model of your printer so that I can guide you.
Thank you for using FixYa.

The orange light is lit up on the printer. What does this mean?


There is a problem with the printer. Press resume button again and see if the light orange light goes off. If not then switch off the computer wait for sometime and start again. If it still persists read the error code.

Hi
If you replaced the cartridges with genuine Canon cartridges then there's probably a build up of ink under the cartridge carriage. Pull out all the cartridges and lift up the carriage. Clean it using a non alcohol cleaner. While you're at it put some cleaner on a folded up paper towel and wipe the ink reservoir located on the right hand side, where the carriage sits when idle. If you replaced your Canon cartridges with off brand cartridges then you might not have changed the chips over. On the old cartridges there's a tiny chip glued to the plastic in front. This chip must be popped off and snapped onto the new cartridge. Good luck

If the ink cartridges are stuck you can manually slide them back to their default position and check for paper or junk which may have slipped down the paper chute and is blocking the ink cartridges.
Remove the blockage
Reset Printer
Done
I just had this problem and it was easy to fix.
If this not help, buy another printer! Cheaper than service...

Try unplugging the unit and then plugging it back in. When you first power it up, it should do an initial system check, which involves moving the print head. Unplug the unit the moment the print head is in a position to change the cartridge. I did this with my old Canon when I had the same problem and it worked. Hope it works for you too.

Remove ink cartridge


I found that the proper way to do it only worked when the ink light was flashing red. Then when I pressed the stop button it moved across and stopped beneath the marker to show which cartridge needed changing. The I pressed the stop button again and it moved to a place where I could change it.
This happened despite the fact that the pictures I was printing blatently showed that I needed to replace my ink, it wasn't until I had printed the liney pictures a few times that the printer decided the ink level was low enough to turn the flashing light on and let me change it.
