Ink may be new, but their nuzzles may be blocked; depending on manner of storage. To be sure apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you still have a good amount of ink in it and the nuzzle is not blocked. If not blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nuzzle is blocked. To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so that the nuzzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nuzzles, the procedure may be repeated over to get results.

However you may also
need to run the maintenance program for the printer, and align the new cartridge. The printer will do that with the numbers & letters you put in, after it prints a setup page.

Dell v305 printer allignment problem


Hello Michelle,

You are using Dell Series 9 ink cartridges, correct?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 9 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 9 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)
photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

It's possible to get a Dell Series 9 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would take these back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Bhautesh,

Printer says allignment is off and I need to remove tape from Black ink but there is no tape on black ink, bought new cartridge even though I did not need one and still says same thing


If you're still experiencing the same problem even with a new cartridge, it could be your printer itself that is the problem. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

Refill colored ink, what holes, lexmark x5470


To open the printer, just above the front control panel you use both hands & pull upwards. The whole top of the printer will open up. The ink cartrifges will be close to the center of the opening. The printer should be on for this. There are two ink cartrages. The one with the black lid is for your black ink. There is a small tab in front of the cartridge lid. Push down on the tab & the lid will open. Remove the old ink. Remove the tape that is protecting the the bottom & copper back side of the new ink. Place the ink into the printer. The copper back that runs from the bottom & up the back side about 3/4" goes into the printer cartridge. The colored ink goes into the other cartridge holder, it's lid is blue. Again press the tab just in front of the lid & it will pop open. Repeat the above removing the protective tape & install the ink.
The ptinter will want to run either a test page or allignment page or both. You will need your manual. If you do not have your manual you can download it from this site. Click the link below.

Not copying or printing


Your printer is telling you it cannot allign the cartridge due to tape, did you remove all the tape off a new cartridge? I use the cleaning solution that comes with the ink refil kits to clean the printer heads and bottom of contact, and have you checked for roller jams, paper jams etc inside unit itself. Also, could be a commincation error. Try turning off unit, unplugging it and reverse, try agian, this resets it. Good luck, post back if no go cheers lilacgerry xxx
