Does your Dell photo printer need a new cartridge?
First, make sure that you really require a new cartridge. Most Dell printers provide you a "Low Ink" or "No Ink" warning on their display screens. However, sometimes these warnings can be misleading. This happens when an unauthorized cartridge is being used. While the replacement may work, the printer does not recognize the new cartridge and it keeps on displaying the “Low Ink” warning. The ‘sure-fire’ sign that appears will tell you that the Dell photo printer needs a new ink cartridge. If you notice text and images getting blurred or the appearance of blank unprinted areas, you should change the cartridge. it would be a good idea to buy a Dell cartridge, though some users prefer non-branded or refilled cartridges for saving cost.
