Question about Dell 922 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper feed skipping

The paper feed in my printer is not smooth. I get random places in documents where the ink skips down. I have tried all the troubleshooting solutions given by Dell. This is not an issue with the cartridge or nozzles. It is something with the paper feed gears.

    I actually can't figure out how to get the printer apart. I don't see any tabs or screws!

    Have you cleaned all of the rollers with a cotton cloth and isopropyl alcohol? That would be the thing to do, because there is likely build-up on some of them causing the rollers to lose traction briefly.

You should be able to access most of the rollers that would need cleaning without dismantling the printer. Once you remove the paper, you should be able to see and clean the initial rollers. When you open the cover for the inkjet cartridge removal/installation, you should be able to clean the majority if not all of the remaining rollers.

Hope this helps you.

My 1988 Plymouth Reliant has a skip in it, when I press the accelerator, it drives smooth and then randomly skips


If tune-up, (plugs and wires) fuel filter changed, throttle body cleaned etc, hasn't been done in a while, that would be a good place to start.

My printer skips lines when it is printing. I've tried cleaning the ink heads, but it didn't do anything. I may have cleaned the wrong thing, I'm not sure. It does it worse when I'm printing pictures...


For this operation, first get the cartridges into the center and pull the plug on the printer so it won't try to put them away while you are working on them. I haven't tried this scheme on a printer yet, but it's worked in other tight spaces: dampen a paper towel with isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Wrap it once around the end of a strip of poster board the width of the cartridge and long enough for convenient handling, and hold it with just enough tension the paper towel to keep it in place. Slide this under the ink heads and gently wipe them with the paper towel. Flip the cleaning tool over and repeat with this side. Replace the strip of paper towel and repeat as necessary. And while you are at it, gently wipe out the head parking zone so it doesn't re-contaminate the heads.

Of course, it is possible you really are out of ink - sometimes ink feed to the heads gets erratic when the level is very low.

D7160 error messages showing put the papers facing down , its correct selection from our side but keeps showing the messges


Print a self-test report. See the section on how to use these solutions at the beginning of this document.
  • If the self-test report prints , try printing the original document again. If the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the self-test report prints, but the original document does not , continue to the next solution in this document.
  • If the self-test report does not print , try printing the report again. Listen for the rubber paper-pick rollers; you should be able to hear them rotating. Then, try slowly pushing the paper farther in until the roller engages to pick up the paper. Be careful not to push the paper in too far, which can cause paper jams.
    • If the self-test report does not print when slowly pushing the paper farther in , repeat the previous steps to clean the rollers again. If the issue continues after repeated cleaning, skip the next solution in this document, and then service the product.
    • If the self-test report prints when slowly pushing the paper farther in , try printing the original document again. The paper might not have been loaded far enough into the product. If the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
    • If the paper only feeds through the product when you slowly push it farther in , repeat the previous steps to clean the rollers again. If the issue continues after repeated cleaning, skip the next solution in this document, and then service the product.

MFC-490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer: how to send a fax...


Most of these will send a fax without even using the PC. Just connect a phone line, place the document in the proper position, usuallu print side up on newer models, and push the fax button, it should prompt you for the number. Once dialed,, the paper will feed into the scanner portion of the multi, and you will see it on the menu bar saying sending page 1, 2 etc, after if is done sending, it will dial and connect, yu should hear the typical noise a fax makes. then it will say fax sent or end or something similar, that's it, try sending one to a friend to make sure it's working. Now some simpler machines require you to open the scanner portion and lay the paper down in the glass manually, mine does it both ways. In that case just skip the feeding part, and dial wait for it to scan and send.

WILL NOT PRINT!!!


Confirm that the ink tanks are installed properly When replacing the ink tanks, confirm that the new ink tanks are installed properly. (See the illustration below this paragraph for ink tanks recommended for this model.) If the ink tanks are not locked into place, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be supplied to the print head. sj402022.jpg

Ink Tanks:
- BCI-24 Color
- BCI-24 Black
  1. Make sure the power is turned on.

  2. Lift the Scan Unit until it locks into place (1). The Print Head Holder moves to the center.

  3. Open the Paper Output Tray (2).

  4. Open the Inner Cover.

  6. When installing the ink tanks, push the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

    Note: If the ink tanks are not installed properly, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be ejected.
