My dell all in one 948 printer always have low black ink. After I put in a new black ink and after five prints the indicator said low black ink. Please provide a solution.


The ink sensor is malfunctioning, make sure the area it plugs into(contacts and ink port is not dirty fouled or clogged up and that any plastic or strips are removed that are supposed to be removed, a cotton swab dipped in alcohol goes a long way with printer problems. make sure its unplugged and hold the power button down for a few seconds before touching any sensors for safety even unplugged machines can hold a charge in them.

Machine won't print


Scanner failure means that the scanner bulb is no longer working. There are a few things that can sometimes bring it back but it may be a permanent issue.
1) Make sure printer is directly into the wall and not a surge protector or power strip
2) Remove cartridges from printer
3) Unplug power from back of printer and wait 30 seconds
4) While printer is unplugged press the # and 6 keys and plug power cord in. Keep holding # and 6 until the printer has either powered off or it says semi-full reset
5) Go through initialization process - if it works great the issue with firmware is fixed. If not then the scanner bulb isn't functioning and you are looking at replacing the unit.

Complete the steps below in the order presented to resolve the problem. It might not be necessary to complete all of the steps.
NOTE: The printer will not operate unless all six ink cartridges are installed. Also, HP cannot guarantee the quality of refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges. Step one: Reset the printer CAUTION: Do NOT perform any other type of reset on the printer before the ink initialization process has been completed.
  1. Without turning the power off, remove the power cord from the back of the printer and from the wall socket.
  2. Wait 30 seconds and reconnect the power cord to the printer and to the wall socket. Turn the unit on if it is not already turned on.
  3. Check the printer for the error message. If the error message still displays, go to the next step.
Step two: Clean the cartridge contacts
  1. Lift the top cover. Figure 1: Lifting the top cover c00372271.gif
  2. Locate the ink cartridge indicated in the error message. Squeeze the gray tab below the cartridge slot to release the latch and then lift the latch. Figure 2: Unlatching the cartridge c00372272.gif 1 - Black cartridge 2 - Color cartridges
  3. Remove the cartridge indicated in the error message. Figure 3: Removing the cartridge c00372273.gif
  4. Gather the following cleaning materials:
    • Distilled, filtered, or bottled water. Do not use tap water, alcohol, or platen cleaners.
    • Lint-free cloth or swab. Eyeglass wipes and coffee filters work well.
  5. Lightly moisten the swab or cloth and squeeze out the excess moisture.
  6. Holding the cartridge by its handle, wipe the copper contacts. Figure 4: Wiping the contacts c00372274.gif 1 - Copper contacts
  7. Replace the cartridge and then close the latch and the printer top cover.
  8. Check the printer for the error message. If the error message still displays, go to the next step.
    NOTE: The printer may take up to 15 seconds to clear the error and recognize the cartridge after closing the cover.
Step three: Replace the cartridge If the error message still displays, replace the indicated cartridge with a new cartridge.
Or Please let me know what is the exact error message you are getting.

Replace the ink tanks and make sure they are snapped in / seated properly.
Try cleaning the contacts between the cartridges and the cartridge carrier.

If the problem is not solved, unplug the printer for half a hour, try again. Try restoring the printer to defaults.

Take all carts out. Close cover. Unplug machine from power. Wait a minute. Plug in machine to power. Machine demands carts. Insert new (!) cart as demanded from machine. In case when asked push 1 for YES: cart changed.

BTW:
Always print until machine stopps printing. Display says NO INK XY. After replacing the cart machine will print the rest data out of its memory.

NEVER change cart when machine says low ink (This is only a hint to buy a new cart!). At this point the cart has about one third of ink left!

Ink says empty but cartridge is new


On the phone for an hour with those idiots in India, same exact problem. Here is what you do: 1: Unplug AC cord from back 2: Hold down the # and 6 key, plug in the powe cord and continue to hold the kes for 1 minute. 3. Printer will power off durning this time. Release the keys and plug in the power cord. 4. You may need to press the power button on. This will hard reset the printer. It will go throught the initialaztion process and suck your cartridges but should solve the problem. HP SUCKS!
