Use good ink cartridges
Sometimes, the ink cartridge or printhead nozzles in your Dell printer might be clogged or the printer cartridge may be running out of ink.

You can run the cleaning program and check if the print quality has improved.
Install suitable drivers
Your printing problems might be related to your printer driver also. A printer driver is a particular type of software that converts the image, document or web page you want to print to something that the printer understands. Printer drivers are most often designed for specific printer series or models with different versions depending on the operating system for the PC to which the printer is connected to.
A Dell printer that is switched on usually will have a green indicator light. If the light is not green, check that the power button is turned on. When power is switched on, you will be able to hear the printing mechanism moving inside your Dell printer. Also check that the printer cable connecting your Dell printer to the PC is firmly attached at both ends. Apart from this cable, there should be one more cable that is connected to the wall outlet. If none of these solutions makes your Dell printer work, then contact a technician at a Dell outlet or post a query on the official site of Dell customer support center.
