Question about Dell 810 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Dell 810 all-in-one printer.

I recently ran out of ink and my printer stopped working, it wouldn't even scan. today i inserted a new ink cartridge and the printer then asked me to print as i wanted to re align the printer and the to scan that printed page, but the problem is that the paper keeps getting dragged to the right and gets jammed. i have the paper inserted correctly and have the paper guide in the correct place. i also uninsulated and reinstalled the printer but the same problem exists. Thanks.

    Many Thanks, but the problem was solved shortly after i posted the question. I turned the printer upside down, gave it a shake, and hey presto out popped a piece of a toy belonging to my son, and now its working fine. Thanks Again.

Your drive rollers are losing their grip.

This sometimes works: use pure alcohol, not rubbing achohol which contains water, wet the lower half of a sheet of quality, heavier paper (the cheap stuff may lose too many fibers), place the wet end in the manual feed, do a form-feed (normally rejects a sheet) and intermittently stop it from passing through several times while the printer is trying to transport it.

This may help to remove accumulated paper fibers and air-borne contaminents from the drive rollers.

Otherwise, you will have to do some disassembly to access them for more thorough cleaning.

How to change printer cartridge Dell 810


Open the printer cover with it turned on and connected to your pc. When you open the cover, the printer should bring the ink cartridge carrier to the front and center so you can access cartridges easily. Press or pull the plastic tab next to the ink cartridge that you wish to replace and it will pop it up towards you and out of the carriage. if there is no plastic tab to eject the cartridge, grab a hold of it with your finger and pull upward and out towards you. Don't worry about breaking anything or harming the cartridge. Once you remove the old one, remove the plastic tape tab on the new cartridge before inserting. Then close the printer cover and it should walk you through aligning the print heads on the display. Good luck!

Printer is blinking. I installed a new ink


Sounds like your cartridge may be unseated or it is really incompatible. You do not state clearly that you have printed successfully with this cartridge before.

Ink


  1. Buy only genuine Dell replacement cartridges. Dell states their printer cartridges cannot be refilled with ink and that only their cartridges work in the printer.
  2. Bring the cartridge carrier of the printer to the center so you can access the ink cartridges. Open the cover of the printer and the carrier slides to the center. Make sure the printer is turned on.
  3. Remove the old black ink cartridge to use the color cartridge. If you allow the old black cartridge to remain in the printer, you will get error messages that the ink is low. The printer may also keep reverting back to the black ink as the default color when printing.
  4. Open the package of the new color cartridge carefully. Remove any blue packing tape that's on the ink cartridge. Take care not to touch the gold area or you could damage the cartridge. Insert the new color cartridge into the correct slot in the printer, the right side of the cartridge carrier. The ink cartridges aren't interchangeable; they need to be placed in the correct slot.
  5. Close the cover on your printer after installing the color cartridge. Run a print test to make sure the color cartridge is installed correctly. Use the Dell Ink Management System to monitor your printer and all-in-one functions. Thanks Thiru

Dell 810 All-In-One InkJet Incompatible Ink Cartridge error message


Well, first off ,it's dell's fault, not yours. Even Official Dell cartridges are temperamental at best. The cartridge error you are explaining is common with Dells. They even have what's called a marriage issue, meaning the cartridge will work in only one single printer. However, I'm not sure how to fix it. Sometimes, you can install a new one and the other cartridge you never touched gives you fits, and goofs up. I'd say get a new printer. Dell is increasingly getting more stingy with their ink, and truth be told, I don't think their quality (*lexmark makes dell, so stay away from them too) matches HP or canon. If you want the best cost per page, get a canon that has individual ink cartridges. They are easy to refill, and print a great picture. You pay more $$ up front, but you'll save a ton in the long run
