SOURCE: The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge

There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

SOURCE: Dark prints when printing from my Imac using Leopard

What worked for me was to pre-set the Epson Stylus Photo (in my case SP R1800) as the DEFAULT PRINTER before (very important BEFORE) launching Photoshop.
Following is a quick summary of key steps. It is assumed that you are familiar with a CS3 workflow. It is not a step-by-step guide for users new to this. All this is really adding is the tip I read in another forum (thanks to whomever it was) to set your photo printer as the default before launching Photoshop.

Before I did this, I had all sorts of problems that I had to fix with letting the Printer Manage, and making Levels or Brightness compensations in Adjustment Layers.

MacBook Pro (early 08, 2.6GHz, 4GB; Leopard; Cinema Display (calibrated and as dark as possible); CS3. Epson Ultra Premium Luster, and Epson Double-sided Matte.
Workflow: Calibrate the display; Install and update all the Epson Drivers; Select SP as Default Printer in Print and Fax System Prefs; Convert or assign Adobe RGB as Working Space and Image Profile; Choose SP in Page setup and the right paper size. In Color Settings Dialog under CS3 File Menu, choose North American PrePress; in the Print Dialog in CS3, Allow Photoshop to manage color (popup), and choose the Printer+Paper profile combo under the popup.
Then when you do Print, make sure all your paper settings are correct and Color management is set to off.
Now I can also nail prints out of Pages and Preview (but need to set color management to ColorSync in the Print Dialog).
No guarantee this will work for you. But it did for me, providing I was doing EVERYTHING ELSE by the book. You may want to cut up larger sheets of expensive paper to use as test prints first. Just make sure they will pass through the printer (don't cut too small, and make sure they are rectilinear). Choose a standard paper size that is slightly smaller than what you have cut. The check "scale to fit media. Should work

SOURCE: Black ink cartridge is 2/3 full, but doesn't print

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: my Dell AIO printer keeps blinking right ink cartridge incorrect.Exclamation light keeps blinking too.

Try going to the Dell site and searching for that printer model. Then see if you need to have both ink cartridges populated and filled with ink, to make it work.

You might also clean the contacts on the ink cartridges, to make sure the printer knows you have both cartridges in the printer, even though they're not both filled with ink.

It just might require both to be filled, before it will print for you.

See what Dell says.

Good luck.

Error code 093-921

If you are seeing any or all of these error codes on the Dell 3130cn Laser Pinter that there is a Firmware Update to address this issue. However, the firmware cannot be applied when there is an error present, so first try reseating all toners. You may need to repeat this several times before errors are cleared. Once error-free, download the Firmware from the Dell Support website and apply.

Reset the Cyan toner properly.

  1. Verify all packaging has been removed from the printer cartridge. This includes any tape or red handles. Also verify the toner cartridge is properly installed.
  2. Remove the toner cartridge and clean the toner housing of any excess toner with a clean dry cloth. Reseat the toner cartridge when finished cleaning.

How do you reset maintenance count on a dell 3130?

You don't. You can't.

When you install a replacement Transfer belt (it has it's own counter chip) that resets the transfer belt pagecount, and as a result clears any transfer belt life related warnings/errors.

When you install a REPLACEMENT Fuser (that has it's own counter chip) that resets the fuser pagecount, and as a result clears any fuser life related warnings/errors.

PLEASE NOTE - The fuser supplied with the DELL 3130 when new DOES NOPT have a counter chip - the fuser life warnigs are triggered by the printer pagecount. Installing a fuser from another printer (even if it has a ZERO pagecount WILL NOT reset the fuser pagecount (because the 'ship with' fuser has no counter chip.

3130cn not a clean print

This is a bit vague for a description of a problem.


How is it not clean?

Is it an overall colour background?

Is it producing 'smudgy' prints (that rub off the page)?

The pagecount of the printer could be useful - indicates how much use the printer has had 0 could point to wear somewhere.

Have you replaced any of the toner cartridges, fuser, of transfer belt recently.

Are you using different paper (than when you were getting good print)?

Just bought Dell printer 3130cn, and am trying to install it on a network. Unfortunately the printer says "error 006-370 restart printer". I have tried restarting multiple times in different ways...

This error relates to condensation that was detected in your printer. You should not use the printer for more than one hour.

If this does not solve the problem, you should contact Dell at 1-877-293-119.

I ran out of toner, so i refilled the toner and put it back into the printer, it is still reading empty and will not print unless i put in a new cartridge. please help

Today printers have a chip in the toner that indicates if the cartridge is empty or full. Even if you fill the cartridge, it doesn't matter. The chip is telling the printer "it is empty", so as you can see, Dell wants your money.

Sorry about that.
