Dell Inkjet 922
Dell aio 922 printer
My printer keeps on saying paper is jammed but there no paper in it and it won't print , when it dosent do that the paper won't go through for it to print . Help !!
What can I do if my printer is telling me print head error?
I have the same problem.
When printing from an application or from the main control, it always produces an "Out of Paper" error. But, when printing the test page, or producing a scan/copy, it feeds fine.
It also does not feed serve up the first page as it used to when powered ON. If manually feed, it FF's this page blank before saying no paper loaded.
Wierd for sure.
I even uninstalled/reinstall the printer driver and other printer software from scratch. Same deal.
Earlier, it was producing the "Paper Jam" error, but cleaning the rollers seemed to have cleared that up.
Careful on the hinges. IF the right one breaks, it's impossible to keep the lid sensor lever in place. It gets knocked off each time the cover is closed due to poor alignment. I finally had to just tape the lever down.
My printer says lid open and I have opened it and closed it several times and it continues to read lid open. How do you fix it?
I accidently dropped my printer one day and when i tried to repair it it came with an error: Print Carrier Stall Check for obstructions. or something along those lines. I have taken the machine apart near completely and cleaned and checked if anything was broken. Nothing seemed to be blocking the path on the bar. when i turn it on it jerks to the left all the way and then returns to the right. nothing looks bent or out of place.... been workin on it for afew dayz so... can anyone help me?
Does this printer have a feature that allows the operator to view and choose which pages to print? If so, does anybody know how to set the printer settings for this feature?
my printer say that i have to clear carrier jam. i have cleaned the carrage rail, but that did not help it is still doing the samething, could someone please help me. i would be so greatful
I have an error message reading Carrier Stall - Clear Carrier Jam. I've tried everything. There is nothing in the way. Help! Does anyone know how to fix? Thanks, N.
Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartidges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat.
I recently replaced the color cartridge in my Dell 922 All in one. I reeived the message - 'incompatible cartridge'. I reordered the cartridge and the same thing happenend. I verified the cartridge number. I reloaded the printer program. No luck! Any help?
omg it totally worked. thanks printerman.
i just cleaned the chrome rod with a moist napkin, after my printer said there was an obstruction.
I unplugged it and plugged it back in, I shook it, turned it upside down, and I even tried playing with the paper sensor. Finally, I figured "I'll fix it or replace it" then GENTLY ran a small screwdriver under the thin rollers just under the chrome bar (lifting the black plastic ever so gently as I went across) and OUT rolled a one-inch nail. (Go figure...)
Thanks very much for this site. Were it not for all of you and sharing the pain as well as the good ideas, I would have had to do without for a much longer time.
Has anyone found a solution to the print head error message. It appears as soon as I turn the printer on.
I have a Dell AIO Photo 926 printer. My encoder strip has somehow fallen off. How can I repair this?
My printer was working fine before I went on vacation. When I came back, it wouldn't print. It acts like it's printing but the paper is blank. I thought the cartridge was bad, so I ordered a new one. I just got the new one today and it has the same problem. It sounds like it's printing, but it just spits out a blank sheet of paper. Can anyone help me?
Printer is telling me "left cartridge incorrect"; but the cartridge had been working fine and there was no warning that it was getting low. Now it acts like it's printing, but sheets come out blank. Please help!
I have a new dell computer with the Vista operating system and the 1720 laser dell printer;however, I also have the AIO 922 dell printer which I like to use for printing color pictures and its copier function. I tried to scan recently and the machine would not scan. What can I do to restore the scan function?
does anyone know why my Dell AIO 922 printer says cover open..but it isn't?? Can't print anything, green power button won't turn off, I unplugged power source, USB cord..plug em back in..nothing..HELP PLEASE??
Can anyone help me with this problem;
I can print with no problem but when I try scanning it doesn't work. I wanted to trouble shoot and went to START ALL PROGRAMS DELL PRINTERS DELL PHOTO AIO printer 922 and what I should also have seen would DELL ALL IN ONE PRINTER but there is nothing there. It disappeared. I know I didn't delete anything and I was scanning 3 weeks ago with no problem. Any clues? Thank you in advance.
I am getting a Paper Jam error when there is no paper jam - has anybody figured this one out?
What a fantastic website. I hope you've all fixed your printers. I have the same error message, it came on when I moved the cartridges into the middle to change them and now they've locked and won't move. Any ideas on how to get it working again?
Any help is welcome my lovely new dell aio 922 which was working cool up till last night, is now no longer printing in blue did the little test, thing and the yellow - red and blac are there but not the blue line???
"printer keeps on saying paper is jammed but there no paper in it"
Same here. And my printer isn't so old, about a year i think. what a piece of junk.
if anyone knows how to fix the perpetual dell all in one paper jam error message (which does not allow you to print) please reply.
i have nothing jamming the printer.
I think it is a production error and DELL obviously is not taking the credit.
I advise do not buy printer etc from DELL. I do not want to say anything about their choice of suppliers for laptops and notebooks but for other stuff they are really in trouble.
Any idea how to fix printer head error?? PLEASE
I have a new printer. the screen always says "cover open" I tried to open and close it several time. but the message does not go away. Because of this message I can not even do the alignment test. Can someone help me?
I seem to be having a problem with the paper feeding crooked, then it jams. I have had this printer for about a year and I don't know why this is happening. My ink is getting low again and I seem to remember the feed acting up the last time I was low on ink. I have tried all suggested remedies and haven't fixed it yet. Any help would be appreciated.
Success!!! After months of my 922 printer displaying "paper jam" when there was blatantly no paper in there at all, I have fixed it! For anyone with the same problem, try this...
lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver and now everthing works fine!
Hope that makes sense and it works for everyone who has the same problem, Jon
my printer will not feed the paper correctly....does anyone know how to fix it because i do not want to have to buy a new one!!
Please Reply soon!!
YOU FIXXED MY PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i had a problem with my printer dell 922 and that is realy helped me
under the chrome that the carts are running on there are two small tips just has to push them in and it's working!!!!!!!!!
I had the same problem as others with the Dell 922. The paper would not feed automatically, I had to assist it with my hand each time which was really annoying. The solution for me was to take the rubber band off the feeder roller and turn it inside out. It worked fine after that. I think the band had lost it's grip! Hope this helps
My printer says, "Clear the carrier jam," I have checked everything I can think of and it still says it!!! What do I do???
I fixed my problem (sheet feeding in crooked, misaligned, paper jams) by using a cotton swab and rubbing alchohol on the feeder roller in the back, and the main roller under the chrome rail. Seems to work now. :)
I need help my print keeps saying that I have a print head error I don't even know what a print head is, so if you could please, please, please, help me I would really be greatful, THANK YOU.
I am now on my second Dell all-in-one, and I a VERY unsatisfied with my purchase. Are these things pieces of junk or what? With my first, I recieved the paper jam error. With this it is the carrier jam. I am done with Dell!
Well, I shook the Dell AIO 942 upside down too and must have jarred the jammed cartridges. I was then able to push them right and then all the way to the left. I hit select and by golly, it's working again.
Thanks Dell ....or should I say NO THANKS for the lack of technical support. Sad that shaking a printer upside down seems to help!
If you have shaken your printer and found nothing inside I have the solution for you. I took the printer apart and I noticed that there is a plastic lever that detects when there is paper in the printer. This lever can be bent in such a way that it does not return to its "no paper" position and so you get a paper jam condition.
I've been trying to print stuff and all i get is " CLEAR CARRIER STALL"
i've checked for any jams, and i just cannot figure it out.
SOMEBODY HELP ME!
Had to laugh... Tried this forum in desperation, couldn't get paper to feed... Tried shaking it over my head in a last ditch effort, a pen fell out! Works fine now.... :)
Too funny! See? Miracles can happen. Now, you draw a picture with your printer-produced pen and I'll nail it to the wall with the nail that came out of my printer.
Happy for you, Pete.
Help! My printer is telling me the Cover is open! But it is not open. And there is no way to open it up! Does anyone know how to fix this?
Hmmm.. I just got this printer and I'm getting, My printer is displaying a "1200 - Cartridge Stall" error. as soon as I put it on it makes a big loud noise, it scans fine but doesn't print or copy. I called DELL and they basically told me nothing, check the cartridges it may be the cartridges and if it is they said to order new ones, those bastards!!! Anyone know what the problem is??
FOUND A TAC JAMMED IN THERE> HAVENT USED THIS PRINTER IN 2 YEARS BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM.
KEPT GETTING "CLEAR PAPER JAM" ERROR WHEN THERE WAS NO PAPER ANYWHERE.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE POSTS!!!!!!!! REALLY MADE MY DAY
I recently got a Dell aio 922 refurbished on-line. The first time I replaced the black cartridge all I get is error 1200 Cartridge stall. I don't want to force anything but the cartridges are stuck under the plastic housing so I can't take it out to check it. What to do?
I recently performed a clean format of my pc. I had all original DELL software and OS (XP)at hand. I haven't had a problem with any other hardware what so ever on reboot - it even picked up my dsl modem w/o the disk BUT - I keep getting an error about the 922 button blah blah blah and upon exiting the error up pops a window asking me to install this DLBTHPEH Dell injet file. I used the "DELL photo All-in-one printer 922" disk but it cant seem to find the file on there. Tried all the other disks that had various drivers and such on them but still.....empty handed. Any suggestions?
I changed the ink cartridge 3 weeks ago and get error 1200 print carrier stall. I need help or will be forced to take it somewhere and pay alot to get it fixed.
I've checked for obstructions like it said but nothing. It still won't print!
ok so i just bought new ink cartridges and its telling me that the black ink is low and i don't get it....it prints ok but the black ink is real light..what do i do??????? please if u can help me that would be awesome!!!
I gave up! Printers are so cheap now you'd be better off just buying a new one like I did. I bought a new Lexmark aio for only about $40! The aggrevation wasn't worth it!!
You're lucky if you get a few months of printing out of the printers made now-a-days. The gears(cheap plastic) or the cables break. I waste time and miney trying to fix mine until I just gave up and bought a new one. It isn't working good either!
I am getting a cover open error, any hekp ?
Odd forum. Lot's of questions; many more me-too's. Few answers. If your problem was already mentioned, why do you ask again? Others just have to wade through the repetition looking to see if maybe somebody provided a solution.
I get the Open Cover error pretty often. Can't figure out why. I've taken to powering off by pulling out the power cable and reinserting it. The fresh power cycle clears the error, at least for awhile.
My ink cartridge is stalled...Error 1200...They won't move swiftly on the rails. What do I do???
I had to just reach in and pull the cartridge carrier out from the side. It worked
You might also have a blockage from one of the little (aluminum?)mini-gears under the carriage assembly. Printing in my aio 926 froze at 99\% every time, responding with paper jam. I noticed the carriage was almost in the middle of the printer, and did not appear to ever move. I pushed to the sides until it gave way, and one of those little gears was sticking up where the carriage used to be, attached by some spring wire. I pulled it out and all the extra wire, and the carriage moved freely. Printing good after.
can any one tell me why my dell 922is printing /copyinf onto the second page plase?
My printer will not register that is has paper in it . Sure could use some help.
It's funny to think that when you buy a dell product, it gives us a one year warranty and after 1 year you will see this problem. My printer keep saying "CLEAR CARRIER JAM" i had tried everything, all the suggestion that i could gather here but none of them works. Is there any other suggestion or should i buy a new printer?
>>>After replacing the black cartridge, I now get a stalled carriage and Printer Error 1200. Please help me as I'm desperate to copy the Crosword Puzzle for my lovely wife!
>>>A repeat of earlier request. Printer Error 1200 after replacing Black Cartridge. Please help!
CANNOT SEE OR READ COPY JUST A OUTLINE OF IMAGE -TOO LIGHT
Thanks for your help. Discovered that closure on Color Cartridge had become open. Wife fixed. Can now print he Crossword Puzzle.
I am also getting "right cartridge incorrect". Bought new colour cartridge & installed it and have been looking at above message since.
*plugging in/ out
*taking out & reinstalling cartridge many times
*shaking upside down
*shouting at it
*praying to vishnu/ buddha/ satan
*spending more time with the stereo in a vain attempt to make the printer jealous...
Help -- my printer feeds the paper only about half way and then continues printing, but the paper doesn't move. I have had this printer for about 3 years, but it only gets light use. I would rather not have to replace it.
Well, I didn't have a pen fall out, but when I rolled my 926 over a few times, something rattled around. Sounded like a small plastic fragment or object. Didn't fall out, but must have settled somewhere neutral enough to allow the paper skewing to stop.
Can anyone help...
my dell 922 printer remains dead in the water with the message print head error, I have tried all things in the manual but the message remains...re installed the software, disconnected and replaced the cables etc, cleaned and replaced the cartridges, any suggestions please or do I just bin the machine and buy another brand.
Thank you anonymous..6/27/08.
It was one of the cartridges defective (short), as you say a simple solution, but not posted in the 922 manual. thanks again gordon pau. (Aust)

I've been using the refill cartridges from cartridge world. I've been managing ok with these cartridges. I last used the printer a couple of days ago and it worked fine. Now it's printing blank. I replaced the cartridges and it's still printing totally blank. I've restarted things and unplugged the printer, but it's still not printing. Any suggestions?
Printer roller in top feed tray pulls paper in the middle and outside paper ends up crunching up on sides from the tension. I made the attempt to turn it upside down and make sure there wasn't torn paper, or any "foreign" object keeping the roller from pulling the paper in correctly...but no go so far. anyone have any ideas? hollar at me...thanks!
I have just fixed a paper jam on my printer, but now even though I have recently replaced the black cartridge, when the paper feeds it will not print anything. I took the cartridge back out and made sure I removed the tape and I did. Why is it not printing? Thanks for the help!
hi,i can not turn on my 922 printer.i press the power button and nothing.i tried disconnecting the usb,power cord and restart the computer with no success.this all seem to happen after i cleaned the nozzle,and align.can you please help me?marc
Out of nowhere my printer has been printing a lot of black solid lines and smeared lines all over the regular printed document, and then started giving me the alignment problem pop-up box. So I've tried cleaning the carts, reinserting them several times, made sure the paper is perfectly being fed in, rebooted it, and it is still doing this. What else can I possibly do to fix this alignment problem? I haven't really had any big problems with this printer considering I've had it for about 4 years now so it's been good to me.
My printer wouldn't "read" the new colour cartridge I installed so Dell mailed me a replacement cartridge. It didn't work either, and then the ink cartridge carriage stuck in the open position. I looked for the various bits and pieces you folks suggested cleaning or prodding, but couldn't really figure that out, but I followed the suggestin to give the beast a good shake. Nothing much happened. By that time I figured a new printer was in order, so with that decision made I stopped being gentle and used all my strength to force the carriages back to their lefthand position. Good grief! Now the foolish beast is working again. And obviously using a lot of pressure on the carriage didn't hurt anything.
i have a dell aio 922 printer and am getting the error 1200: print carrier stall, check for obstructions....did that and nothing....talked to dell and got no where....can someone please help me solve this problem.....
I was given a Dell AIO 922 today: the previous owner didn't know if it worked or not (their policy at work is
does anyone know where the hinge cover plate goes? is there a pic of where it goes? thanks for the help. pulled jammed paper out of machine and it came out with it. [email protected]
You are a genius (re. the non-jammed paper)
does anyone know where the hinge cover plate goes? is there a pic of where it goes?
My Dell 926 printer has a paper jam. It does not read as paper jam,It says load paper, but there is obviously a paper jam. Does the printer open up so I can get it out of the roller ?
My Dell 922 AIO Printer won't communicate with my
Dell Inspiron 6000. Please help. Thank you.
okay so this stupid printer ismaking me so bad i keep getting a carrier jam message ive done everything under the sun shoke it beat it banged it one the table cleaned everything on the inside now im covered in ink pissed off and still nothing the printer cartriges dont even move when i open it and when i push the select button like it tells me its makes this grinding sound and the carrier slams fromside to side so hard the whole thing shakes......any ideas or is my printer screwed?
I have purchased a black and color cartridge for my Dell AIO 922 Printer twice. I continue to get the "alignment problem" remove tape from cartridges. There is no tape on cartridges. Any suggestions on how to resolve this very, frustrating problem? would greatly appreciate ANY and ALL assistance.
Hi, I'm getting white lines, a 2nd page prints, distorted first page, some line print almost on top of each other (creating blurs) Any help would be appreciated
i FIXED IT...if you read below, I was able to fix this error message...
Apparently, my kids (yes, they did it again) had put a piece of clear tape in the paper slot of printer and caught on a rod & registered as paper jam. Once I took tape off & popped rod back in place, printer works just like normal.
thanks to this website for help. awesome! i was beginning to feel helpless!
I have the same problem with my A922.. ERROR 1200...
When I turn it on it sounds like it's in a one printer destruction derby.. i turned it on with the lid up and the carriage is slamming into the left side and then slamming back into the right side and then it stops and gives me the error message.. is there supposed to be some kind of sensor in there to tell it when it's near the end of the run?
I tried shaking it upside down...
..I tried cleaning the chrome rod..
I tried taking the ink cartridges out..
Save me PrinterMan.. you're my only hope!
I think i have a theory as to what's going on... i noticed there is a plastic strip running parallel to the chrome bar with black lines all along and then clear about where it should stop... i noticed a red glow coming from the side of the printer mechanism too like the light in an optical mouse.. so i figured that this plastic strip must be part of an opto-coupler sensor.. i didn't see a red glow coming from the back of the printer carriage though so i took the whole thing apart and sure enough, there's a plastic disc on the side where i saw the red glow coming from, but when i took the carriage off the rail i saw that there was a glow there too - hmm... i cleaned the sensor out really good and put it back together, but it still did the same thing..... so i guess there must be a fault somewhere on the control board :(... it sounds like it's time for a new printer :(
printer is not recognizing connection...help! I can copy, but not print...any ideas would be appreciated...all connections are made.
I had a message come up that my printer was stalling. The ink cartridges were stuck on the left handside of my printer. I called Dell and did not get an answer, so I just played around with it and tried to physically move the ink cartridges. With a gentle pull the ink cartridges become unstuck and now it works perfectly!
After replacing the black cartridge, I now get a stalled carriage and Printer Error 1200. Please help me as I'm desperate to copy the Crosword Puzzle for my lovely wife!
My printer begins to pull the paper in to print but then the paper gets stuck.
I have exactly the same symptoms as "I just want to sew"; demolition derby or what! The head thrashes to lhs and then rhs; it would take your fingers off it's so violent and then stops and gives error 1200...
Haven't seen this one before. It seems to be intermittent too; I managed to print 3/4 of a page tonight before the derby started! I think it is as you say I just... a problem with opto coupling on the servo strip; I suspect the flat cable feeding the head tho - this is the most likely place for a problem to develop with a break in 1 or more tracks from all that flexing. I wonder if these are available anywhere at a reasonable price coz the printer does a pretty decent job still. Otherwise I think you are right - it may be time for a new printer.
I just refilled my ink cartridge but my computer and my printer read that the ink levels are still where they were before I refilled my cartridge. How do I get this thing to recognize there is more ink!
I followed the adivce of someone who said to clean the bar. Then I unplugged the printer and the carts moved. It then responded by saying to clear the jam. It was jammed alright, with a small cog and spring. Hope that wasn't important, I got it out and the carts can move fine now.
My Dell aio 922 was printing blank sheets. I replaced both cartidges and cleaned the chrome bar. Managed to get it to print a copy of page perfectly. Now it is printing blank sheets again. Help?
Lindsay Baby, you made my day!
I was about to through that heap of junk through the window when i read your post. With my hopes set low I unplugged the printer, turned it upsidedown, and out feel a small piece of plastic. Now it at least prints! Still not straight, but hey, it's a start.
Frig, went to use my scanner today and got a 1200 error.
Tried some of the suggestions and still nothing.
Even took the dang thing apart. Nothing.
I'll keep trying a bit longer before I throw this thing out.
Worked good for a couple years at least and was free so, can't complain too much.
My scanner will not work, I recently had a problem with my computer and I had it fixed, they had to remove all my software and my printer/scanner/fax was removed. My printer (Dell Photo AIO Printer 922) works just fine, but my scanner will not scan. I no longer have my disc to reload it, what do I do??? Please help!!!
anyone have a solution to "cover open" on my Dell AIO 922 printer? Says it is open..but it isn't..tried unplugging USB cord,power source..shut down computer, restarted..and still says"open"..HELP??
Same problem here! I can't find a solution to this problem..?? Doesn't anyone know why my 922 says "cover open"..it isn't..i haven't been able to print anything for 2 weeks now..HELP??
Yess!! This worked.
I replaced my printer cartridges and then all of a sudden got the error message "Print Carrier Stall Check for obstructions". I tried cleaning the chrome rod as people suggested and that didn't work. Then I tried shaking it and that didn;t work. Then I realized that the buttons on the print cartridges weren;t pushed down all the way. The printere must have sensed the blue and black things being loose and produced this error message.
Thanks for the help!
can anyone help me with a "cover open" message on my Dell 922AIO printer..it isn't open.
What is the solution for correcting the "cover open" message error. My printer is locked up and will not print.
My printer has decided that when I press the "Scan" button, it will sit there, and do nothing. Seems like the only explanation is that this thing is junk. I don't expect any help from DELL though, considering that after having several problems with my computer after purchasing it, having them send techs out to my house, replaced my hard-drive(to no avail), and eventually told me that due to the number of problems I was having they would be sending me a new system. I waited the 14 days, and called them back, asking where my computer was, and they responded as if they had never heard of me. "We can't do that" was their final statement. I will never in my life purchase anything from DELL again, nor will I advise it. As a matter of fact, I will actively campaign against them. Because, as i like to say, "DELL SELLS LEMONS"
DELL 922 AIO Printer
Installed two new ink cartridges and get error message on machince that right cartridge is incorrect. Try to print and pages come blank. How do I fix?
I have a new laptop with Windows 7- is there any drivers or patches that will make this printer work with my new lapop? Apparently the printer is not compatible?
Thanks in advance
My Dell aio 922 ran out of black ink. When I put refilled cartridge in, it gave me a message of "print head error". After taking cartridge back to place where it was refilled, it was checked out. Then when I reinstalled the cartrige, gave me a message of "black cartridge missing".Then I purchased a new cartridge and when it was installed, it gave me the message of "print head error".
I am whits end. I about ready to throw the printer in trash.
Error message: Print head error
This type of error message typically happens when the printer head is not clean enough. You could try installing software that is used to clean the head of the printer. You could try clicking on ‘start’ then go to ‘settings’ and then ‘printers’. Select your printer and right click on it and go to ‘properties’. Check to see if there is any such software installed. If cleaning does not seem to work then the other option is to try replacing the printer heads.
Im glad everyone has had sucess fixing their printers. But my problem is software related. Anyone up for a challange? I keep reloading my software and it says driver already installed and then says it is updating the driver. But when I try to print, it asks me to find a printer and tells me when I select the 922, there is no driver installed for it! It did have the icon down in the quick launch showing status ready, but thats not showing up anymore since I tried to remove the printer and reinstall it completely. I have more than one hard drive installed on my dell dinension 2400. Might be a conflict going on somewhere? Frustrating! Maybe someone has experienced this and has a fix.
My printer was working fine until I tried to use it a couple of days ago. I haven't used it in a while since I only use it when I need to print in color (Laser printer for B & W). I bought an ink refill kit like I used to do for my HP printer. Filled the cartridges, and now the paper won't feed. I didn't know if this was the problem, so I bought new cartridges and installed them. The printer will still not feed. The paper starts going in, then it seems like only 1 side is feeding, causing the jam. It does this no matter what kind of paper is used. Is there a way to fix this?
I'm just trying to scan some photos. Press the scan button and nothing happens. What am I missing? It's connected to the laptop that is running Vista. Ideas?
I cannot get the housing over the black cartridge to close properly since I installed a new cartridge. Even tried putting the old cartridge in and it won't click close.... but it will if there is no cartridge in there so it's not like it's broken... just won't close with a new cartridge.
I tried to register and put the wrong address in and I can not correct it . Please help ASAP.
I have replaced a Black ink cartridge for the dell AI 0ne 922 printer and I cannot get the printer to work...
it comes up on scrren showing its still on the reserve tank within the software template... Can anyone tell me what I have to do to reset it to work.... my colour cartridge is very low and at the moment it only prints out in Red .. I could not find any instructions on How to reset the printer be it a switch on the printer itself or within the software...
Also can anyone tell me if they have ever used a refill kit to refill their cartridges... I have also tried this and still get the same message that I am still on reservve tank
I have pressed continue, but it wont accept it or work..
My printer has several problems:
1) It skips to about 1/3 down the page and then smudges & skips.
2) Most of the time it jams the page unevenly.
3) The power button sometimes won't power off until 3 or 4 tries.
I used a non Dell ink cartridge on the black side and after the 4th cartridge I started having trouble. I've since then purchased Dell ink cartridges but it still does'nt work. I don't want to trash it and I can't afford a pro so if I can salvage it I will. Please help. Thank you.
Ok what is a print head and how do I fix the "print head error".
PREVIOUS PROBLEMS AND FIXES/WORKAROUNDS:
Problem: Paper jams, prints crooked
Solution: As many users have posted, shaking the printer upside down to try to get foreign objects out works pretty well. In my case there were a bunch of Styrofoam peanuts in there from packing it one time. I had to take it all apart and put it back together.
Problem: Doesn't recognize that there is paper loaded
Solution: After taking apart my printer for the last problem there was one part that I didn't know where it went back in. I believe now that it was the sensor for detecting if paper was in the tray. I left it off to the side, hanging by its wire. There's a small circuit board on it, with 4 stiff wires connecting to it and holding it in place. I took a paper clip and shorted all the wires together - the error went away.
Problem: Tries to print test page every time the printer turns on. Started after completing the previous two solutions.
Solution: ?? It went away eventually. May have been related to changing to Windows 7 and upgrading the driver.
Problem: Windows Vista driver not compatible with Windows 7.
Solution: Windows 7 compatible driver (may want to uninstall and clean up all current drivers [google for cleanup tool]):http://support.dell.com
Problem: Having trouble scanning.
Solution: Turn on printer. Open Dell All-in-one center on computer. Go to scan tab there and select options, etc. This seemed to work better than choosing to scan from the printer buttons.
Problem: Open document, hit print, printer does nothing. Print job manager on computer says it is printing but nothing ever happens. Hit cancel on job manager, changes status to Printing-Deleting, but still nothing ever happens. Cannot delete job, cannot print anything else.
Solution: Restart computer. Even if you have tried to cancel the job it may still print. Make sure there are no other jobs in line behind it. Try to avoid sending a print job to the printer while it's still finishing another. This seems to cause the error more often, but it can happen randomly.
Problem: Scanner is cropping and only scanning small parts of it. I want to scan the whole page.
Solution: Scan using the Dell All-in-one center. Go under See More Scan Options > Advanced, and choose Select Area to be Scanned (instead of Auto-Crop). Choose your paper size.
Problem: Plugged in and turned on printer. No light on power button, no screen light, no reaction to power button. Only activity is about once a minute the cartridges will move a bit right, then left and click a couple times. Then the roller that normally spits out the paper closest to the output will spin very quickly for a beat (sounds like a scraping noise). No buttons do anything. Power cycling does nothing (plugging-unplugging). Tested on different outlets, attempting to print says Communication is unavailable.

after I click on print it takes 4-5 minites to start printing. This is very annoying when I have a lot to print. Please help. Thanks. glennie.
I am getting a solid black line from the top to the bottom on any page scanned and printed. I do not get any erros, lines or any other problems at all when I just simply print. SO there has to be a problem with the scanner- Can anyone help??
I have just re-installed my dell AIO 922 printer after it sat for a good 5 years. I did a test print- knowing I was out of black ink, but am certain that I had plenty of color, and nothing showed on the paper. I realize after setting for so long the ink may have dried up(?) Is there anything I need to be aware of it setting for so long? I hate to buy ink if I may need to have other things checked out.
Thank you for any help. Roni
Out of nowhere my printer has been printing a lot of black solid lines and smeared lines all over the regular printed document, and then started giving me the alignment problem pop-up box. So I've tried cleaning the carts, reinserting them several times, made sure the paper is perfectly being fed in, rebooted it, and it is still doing this. What else can I possibly do to fix this alignment problem? I haven't really had any big problems with this printer considering I've had it for about 4 years now so it's been good to me. I have also realigned several time and same error message pops up on printer.
I turn on my dell 922 it says paper jam with no paper jam, or paper in it at all. all buttons are froze an can't do anything.
Has anyone been successful make this printer work with Vista OS?

I have a big problem with a very high screaming noise from my w5300 Dell laserprinter, when I start to print something.
I can't hear where the noise is coming from, but it's in the back of the printer, I have tried to lubricate all the bearing with no luck, I have tried to change the exit module with no luck.
I can it be the fuser, even I have made the lubricant.
i am trying to scan a document from my dell AIO printer scanner to my dell inspiron 1521 laptop and it wont do anything when i press scan how do i make it scan the document onto the computer so i can save the file?
I have power to my AIO 922 printer, the power light is flashing, but the little window is blank. When I try to print, I get an error suggesting there is a communications problem. My PC can't communicate to the printer. All connections are connected. The only problem I see is that the window on the printer is blank. It will normally be defaulted to "copies - 1". There is nothing in that window. How can I fix this?
this site is old just like my dell 922 but i can't afford another printer or even repair. the gray strip came out and the cartridges are banging. i need to put the strip back in but don't know where it goes or if i need a tiny flashlight. i've had the dell for ten years and like it. i'm sorry it's causing problems. i've dealt mostly with software fixes to get it to work on a new laptop years ago. i also had to do it several times after restoring laptop. i need this printer and it was working fine until this gray plastic strip came out and i see on here or online, it needs to be put back where it belongs. where does it belong
I PITCHED MY DELL MONTHS AGO. DELL WOULDN'T HELP ME WITH ANYTHING, AND I PURCHASED A KODAK ESP 3 ALL-IN-ONE...LOVE IT!!
