Question about Dell V305 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Dell V305w All in One printer, 2 years old...now getting unsupported right cartridge message. I have been using recycled cartridges successfully until now...same company. Recently replace right cartridge (color)...worked fine. Just replaced left cartridge (B/W) and now getting message Unsupported right cartridge. Have tried unplugging power & USB, rebooting several times...No luck! I've read some feedback from others that even replacing with Dell cartridges did not resolve. Any suggestions?

Problem Unsupported Cartridge; Error: "Unsupported cartridge"; Incompatible cartridge error; Incompatible cartridge in the printer; Cartridge not recognized Solution What you will see
When a cartridge is inserted, an Unsupported Cartridge error message is displayed on the printer operator panel.
Affected printers
This issue affects printers sold exclusively in the Dixon Store Group (DSG) in Europe and in Circuit City in the U.S. NOTE: The cartridges for these printers are sold exclusively in these stores or on their websites.
Explanation
The printers listed in the table below are compatible with a #2 cartridge (in single cartridge printers) or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges (in two-cartridge printers). They do not support the standard color 28A 35, and Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges. If the standard color 28A 35 or Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges are used in these printers, they will fail to print and the printer will post an Unsupported Cartridge error message.
Solution
Lexmark recommends using either a #2 cartridge for single-cartridge printers or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges in two-cartridge printers.

Colour ink cartridge not recognized. Dell 305 Printer


Have you tried restarting your computer with the printer switched? This sometimes works. Other than this you can get a little device that resets the chip on the rear of the cartridge. This sometimes happens with refilled cartridges.
There are many stationers who stock this gadget.

hi there !

-try the old cartridge or a new cartridge and check if you will get the same message
-if you have the same error message it is a problem with the printer; if you the error disappears it is a problem with the cartridge; contact your manufacturer for a replacement cartridge

Dell 944 error message 1102 after fitting new DellBlack Cartridge


hi there,

you can try these steps:

try to remove the new black cartridge. get a clean cloth. gently wipe the copper strip of the cartridge. unplug the power cable of the printer. gently wipe the contacts of the black cartridge carrier (where you put the black cartridge in). close the carrier, plug the power cable back in. install the black cartridge. then check for the error code.
if you still have same error code, try the old cartridge.
if the old cartridge still works, you need to contact dell for the replacement of the black cartridge (if you purchase the black cartridge from dell)
if the old cartridge is also giving same error. try the steps on the color cartridge as well, it might be with the color cartridge error.
or both.
worst case scenario the contacts on the printer carrier might be broken already.
but in this kind of situation. 98% it's the cartridge that's causing the issue.

have a great day :)

take them back then. It's obviously a chip problem from whoever did them for you.

Unsupported cartridge error


Sounds like a falty cartridge. Call Dell tech support. The cartridge should have a warranty even if the printer iself does not. They'll replace it.

Incorrect right cartridge - unsupported cartridge.


I had the same "unsupported ink cartridge" thing going on with hp until I got fed up and uninstalled the hp software and just used my windows devices and printers. Windows will automatically find drivers for your printer and you should be able to choose how much of that software you want to download and install. Eventually I did get some software from hp but I still use Windows fax and scan. When I had a chance to participate in a questionnaire, I made it plain to hp that it's my printer, my ink, my cartridges and I'll do what I want with them. I'll take them out and use them for a planter if I want! In the meantime, I do expect them to print with whatever I put in them. It might not be as good a quality as the original, but it's still my right.

I could be mistaken but I am pretty sure the right cartridge should be the black one. I would double check it. Also make sure you are using Dell brand cartridges.
