Dell ink cartridges have a chip that allows the printer to "read" whether the cartridge is full or empty. Problems may arise when you refill the Dell cartridges or install a third-party ink cartridge in your printer. The printer can get confused in these situations and tell you that you are out of ink when you actually have a full cartridge. The solution is to bypass the printer ink chip in your Dell 924 printer via the software.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn off your printer and then turn it back on. You should get a message on your computer that says "Your ink cartridge is almost out of ink."

  2. 2

    Hit "OK" when the screen says "New Black Cartridge?" but do not check the box that says "Complete-A-Print."

  3. 3

    Check the box that says "Don't display this dialogue again." This will ensure that you no longer receive any warnings about low ink.

  4. 4

    Turn off your printer. Restart your computer. Turn your printer back on. You should now be able to use your printer as usual.

Tips and warnings

  • If this doesn't work, you may need to buy genuine, unused Dell ink cartridges for your printer.
