Are the two cartridges *EXACTLY* the same width?
If not, then it's not possible to put a cartridge into the wrong slot.

If they are, then insert both cartridges, and turn the printer OFF/ON.
If the lamps on the printer flash, due to "incorrect loading" of those ink-cartridges, then remove both cartridges, and flip-flop them, and try again.

I replaced the black ink cart. but the ink light still blinks. do i have to replace the color cart also? or what else could the problem be? thanks so much


Hi:
I would say replace them both, but first make sure you removed the print head protectant strip from the cartridge. Go into you printer properties and check your ink levels to see if the color is empty, also make sure you use HP ink cartridges, off brands do not meet the required spec's all the time. And never use ink refill for cartridges as sometimes the ink they use is to thick for the HP Printer.

My 926 dell printer will not recognize my color cartridge. How can I fix it?


This could be a few things. It could be dust or some debri blocking the connection. take out the ink cart and use a lint free cloth to wipe off the copper looking contact. if that doesn't work then it's one of 2 problems. it's a bad ink cart, or the printers sensor is bad. It's usually a bad ink cart. If the ink has been refilled, then i guarantee that's the problem. Best thing to do is buy a new ink cart. If that fixes the problem then you are set. if not, the printer is faulty. Dell's ink carts have a 2 year warranty. If the ink cart is under warranty, then they should be able to replace it. Just be sure to tell them that another ink cart resolved the problem. If the printer is the problem and it's out of warranty. pitch it. Dell is gonna charge somethign like 29 dollars to troubleshoot and tell you the same thing. If it's still under warranty, the of course, call dell and get it replaced.

"More Than One Ink Tank Of The Following Color Is Installed"


Try using clean cotton cloth, like from an old t-shirt, and clean the contacts on both the ink cartridge and the seat inside the slot where the ink cart goes. If you clean them both, for each cart color, you might fix this problem.

Be sure that the power is off when you do this first!

Hello


Did you use generic ink carts? If yes and those have a scotch tape as a seal, ink has splashed and stained the led-control board.

Do use a full brother ink cart and place it into the machine. m
always make sure that the colored latches are secured (clicked into position.

Another chance is that the generic cart is a bit too small. feed some paper BENEATH the cart. Leave some more paper to be pressed by the latches.
