Most printers don't come with a USB cable. You'll have to purchase one from someplace like Best Buy or Office Max. Just tell them th model number of you're printer and they'll get you the correct USB cable.

You can look up the user manual for your printer on the manufacturer's website (like Canonusa.com, or hp.com), by entering the model number of the printer in the Search box.

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,

How I can refill my HP 27 Cartridge at home...


Hi,

please follow the instructions........

  • 1

    Purchase an ink refill kit that is specific for the HP 27 color ink cartridge. Look over the packaging to insure that it states that the kit is for the particular make and model. Using other types of cartridges may not work properly.

  • 2

    Place several paper towels down to prevent any ink residue from damaging other objects. Place the ink cartridge onto the paper towels. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to prevent ink from staining hands.

  • 3

    Peel off the top label gently from the cartridge.

  • 4

    Observe the three holes that are located on top of the cartridge. There is a solo hole located near a rectangular tab that protrudes and two other holes located next two rectangular indentations into the plastic on the top of the cartridge.

  • 5

    Take a toothpick and gently stick it down inside each hole to verify the color. Take a sharpie marker and mark next to each hole with the correct coloring for ease. Use "M" for the magenta color, "Y" for yellow and "B" for blue.

  • 6

    Take a piece of masking tape and place over two of the holes to prevent ink spillage from mixing into other color positions.

  • 7

    Read over the ink cartridge refill kit for the appropriate amount of ink needed to fill the syringe with the correct color for the uncovered hole.

  • 8

    Expel any excessive ink from the syringe. Insure that you have the correct amount of ink by following the markers on the side of the syringe.

  • 9

    Place a paper towel over the end of the syringe and while holding the tip upwards, gently press or tap the syringe plunger to expel any air.

  • 10

    Insert the syringe needle into the appropriate color hole until the tip hits the bottom of the cartridge. Pull the syringe up a little from the bottom of the cartridge to prevent blockage when expelling ink.

  • 11

    Expel the ink into the color hole slowly. Stop if ink begins to protrude out of the color hole. Take a cotton swab and gently wipe the outside of the color hole and then cover with tape.

  • 12

    Take the syringe apart and rinse thoroughly to prevent ink colors from blending. Take a cotton swab and dry out the inside of the syringe.

  • 13

    Repeat above steps for the remaining two color positions that are left.

  • 14

    Gently take a needle and put a hole in each tape that covers the color holes for ventilation. Allow the cartridge to sit for at least one hour after completing refill instructions.

  • 15

    Reattach the original top label.



  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    Im not realy familiar with Kodak printers but my best advice would be change the scaling in the printer settings. There should be a setting that allows you to alter the coloration, if not try cleaning the cartridges. There should be a selection for that within your printer settings.

    Changing ink default to BLACK


    Not possible.
    Epson uses the black cartridge mostly, but also adds color to the black printing in order to keep the color inks from drying in the print jets on the printhead.
    They also make lots of money that way...

    The solution center shows a question mark on both ink cartrages, and says no comutaion with the printer.


    Take the cartridges off and check the connections. Make sure that there is no dust or debris on the contacts. Also take some Alcohol on a swab and clean both areas with it. I would recommend a clean swab for each contact so you do not cross contaminate the leads. When you put the cartridges back in make sure that they seat all the way. I know that there are some cases where the cartrages look like they are seated properly but not.

    Lexmark x3430 need ink cartriage


    This is the only information I could find. Didn't your printer come with a black and color ink cartridge? If it did, all you need to do is take the ink cartridge out and write down the numbers written on the cartridge. The only ink cartridge I could positively confirm was the #24 color ink cartridge. The Lexmark website does not list any black ink cartridges for this model. This information was obtained from Officemax.com.
    Lexmark - 24 Ink Cartridge - Color
    Compatible with Lexmark Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;
    Lexmark - 23 Ink Cartridge - Black
    Compatible with Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;

    I've recently installed my black ink cartridge and nothing happens when I try to print out. I've removed the sticker and checked all troubleshooting problems, and when I try to print, it comes out blank....


    As this is a printer problem as opposed to a PC problem, we are in need of additional information. Please provide info regarding the printer model as well as the PC. Was this a routine cartridge change, and have you done it before with no negative consequence? Is the printer new or how old is it, and how old is the cartridge?

    As you indicate black cartridge, it sounds as though this is a color printer. Have you tried to print a color document? Go to your printer settings and make sure it is set to print in color; then choose some color page (even this web page) and attempt to print it. If the color prints and the black doesn't, it is a bad cartridge.

    It is also interesting that you mention the USB cable being attached. Do you have reason to believe the PC and printer are not communicating? If so, go to the Control Panel (Windows) and check your Printers to see if the printer is listed there. Check all the windows for status and any indication of an issue. If it is not listed, there could be a problem with either the cable, the USB port, or an intermediate piece of software.

    If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently, as well as responding to the questions posed above, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.Thank you for using and rating FixYa!
