Dell Printer 926 cartridge error

Installed a new cartridge, got a "left cartridge error" message. Fiddled with it for a while, ended up getting an "error 1203" message. Unplugged and replugged the machine from the power outlet, am now getting "left cartridge error" message again. I have removed and replaced the cartridge about three times, no help at all.

    keep getting a "left cartridge incorrect" error. printed fine yesterday. taking cartridge out and putting back in doesn't correct problem

  • ssharrieff May 21, 2009

    Same problems that are described with Del 962 printer. Left cartridge incorrect. Is it an ink cartridge made in the Pillippines problem, or a real one?

If the old cartridge can be detected and the new ones are not
Try rubbing the metal contact on the ink cartridge with cotton or clean clothes there is a very thin film covering the contact that sometimes prevented the Printer from recognizing the Cartridge

Hi, i'm getting error message 1203 on the printer and we've lost the user's manual. Can you tell me what this is?


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203



Error 1203 is a very interesting cartridge error. It means your cartridges overflow even from brand new cartridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the cartridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the cartridge


Solution:
I use the lint free cloth(coffee filter work great) with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the cartridges a couple times then run clean cartridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of lint free cloth(coffee filter work great on those holder contact panel.

My Dad bought new ink cartridges ( black and color) and installed them in the printer and it is not registering that they are installed. What are some things I should check for and how can I fix this????


After installing new ink cartridges in your Dell all-in-one 926 printer, you may receive an error message telling you the print does not recognize the new cartridges. Refilled or third-party cartridges, which Dell does not recommend using with the 926, often trigger the error message. You may also receive this error after you have been using the same ink cartridges for some time. Whether the cartridges are new or not, the error can be caused by a number of sources. Following the steps below should clear up print cartridge problem.

  • 1

    Open the Dell 926's front cover with the power on and wait for the cartridge carriage to come to a stop. Remove the ink cartridges by pressing on the tabs at the top of each cartridge. Check the cartridges to make sure you have removed all of the blue protective plastic film. Look for the "Dell" logo stamped into the cartridges' lids to ensure they are genuine cartridges.

  • 2

    Clean the shiny metal portions of the ink cartridges with a damp microfiber cloth. Allow each cartridge to dry completely.

  • 3

    Clean out any paper, staples or other debris that you may be able to see, then reinsert the cartridges into their appropriate slots. Put the black ink cartridge into the left slot and the color cartridge into the right slot. Make sure both click back into place.

  • 4

    Close the Dell 926's front cover and turn off the printer. Unplug the power cord and USB cable from the printer for five seconds, then reconnect them.


  • If your Dell 926 fails to recognize the print cartridges after following the above instructions,

    take it to a repair shop for servicing.


    Good Luck and Happy Printing

    DELL PHOTO 926- ALL IN ONE- ERROR CODE- "UNSUPPORTED INK CARTRIDGE" HOW TO FIX THIS?


    Follow the below instructions

    1. Lift the printer unit up. Position the scanner support beam between the tabs to hold the printer unit lid open. The ink cartridge carrier moves to the loading position in the center of the printer.

    2. Press down on the lever in front of the right and left ink cartridges lid. The lid opens and raises up.

    3. Remove the color and black ink cartridges from the carrier. Inspect the cartridges to ensure that it is compatible with the Dell 926 printer. The proper cartridge is called Dell 926 Standard Capacity Color Ink and Dell Standard Capacity Black Ink.

    4. Examine the cartridges for any tape over the ink nozzle. New cartridges have a strip of tape covering the bottom of the cartridge that must be removed before installing into the printer.

    5. Insert the cartridges into the carrier so the label is on top with the color logo side going in first. Press the lid down to snap it into place.

    6. Push the scanner support bar back to release it. Lower the printer unit until it is closed.

    7. Turn the printer off. Restart the computer. Turn the printer on. If the error message appears again, the cartridges may be defective and needs to be replaced.

    I hope this clears up your problem.


    Good Luck and Have a Nice Day!!

    Error message clear carrier jam, when I opened the top of the Dell Photo 926 a long clear strip fell out, What do I do to fix this.


    The long clear strip is the encoder strip that the cartridge carriage reads to know where it is in the printer. It should not have just fallen out. There should be a small hole at each end of the strip to attach it to points in the printer. If one of those holes is broken you might as well get a new printer. Paying someone to buy a new encoder strip and install it will most likely cost more than the machine itself.

    Dell 926 won't recognize new color cartridge


    Try this...shut down the printer. Insert new cartridge, let the printer cycle out with new cartridge. then reboot the computer. This should solve the problem. The cache in the printer will not cycle out. It wants to see the printer as a new entity

    Dell 926 printer


    Dell cartridge are quite expensive, and refilled and non original cartridge are often not accepted by Dell printer. If you use non original cartridge often you keep getting this message unless you replace both cartridges.
    Be also careful also if you use refilled, sometimes refilled can leak all over the inside of your Dell printer right when ink is coming to the end.
    In your case try replacing both cartriges at the time, this usually clears the error.
    A suggestion: Dell small inkjets are sold at a price often inferior to the cartridge set price, and now you know why, ask the price for a new Lexmark, HP, Epson,Brother, Canon etc. next time you have to replace a cartridge set, it may be worth buying a new printer.
    Apart small inkjet sector, Dell produces excellent laser printers, computers, laptops and more.

    You can read more opinions on small dell inkjets here or using google.
