Dell Photo All in One Printer 964

I replaced my black cartridge and now I cannot print in COLOR. The ink levels are good on the color cartridge, I cleaned the cartridge per manufacturer's instructions. When I align the cartridge, or when I clean the nozzles, I get color on the output sheets, but cannot print any documents in color. Everything wants to print in draft black and white. I've changed the print options in my software and and in Windows and still cannot print in color. Help?

    How do you clean the ink jet nozzles on the 966 dell printer? the print is uneven when it copies - I have cleaned around the cartridge heads excess ink from the cartridge but I don't know where the nozzle is to clean it and what to use to clean it.

Try printing a windows test page from the driver software, START-SETTINGS_PRINTERS-DELL964- properties,,etc. If the test page prints with color then I believe that your driver is set to print in greyscale. If you can't find that option in the driver you might try to re-install the driver from your original cd.

Black cartridge is new. registers low ink level and does not print at all.

Unplug the printer from the wall. Noe remove the power brick from the printer for 60 seconds. This will reset any error message the printer is getting. Plug the printer back in.

Turn on the printer. Open up the printer and take out the black cartridge and reseat it. Do the same for the color cartridge. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page. Any error messages?

If you still get the error message, then it's possible that the sensor in the Dell Series 5 ink cartridge is bad. If this is a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge, then take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement or refund.

black = black side(left) color = color side(right)

photo cartridge = black side(left color = color side(right)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to purchase a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. Please take it back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

Refilled ink catridges and printer still shows that the ink is low

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 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 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)

Black ink wont print, but color works fine

The black cartridge needs replacing it sounds like. On many printers, that is the only way that you get black.
