Customer Question
Printer keeps saying replace...

Printer keeps saying replace black cartridge. Put in a new one and it still says replace black cartridge and won't work

Technician's Assistant: What's the model of your printer?

Dell C1765

Technician's Assistant: Are you getting any error messages? Are you able to open the lid that covers the cartridges on your printer?

Just replace black cartridge

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Was working just fine until I printed out an article about 25 pages and then it just stopped working all together even though it said there was plenty of black ink left in the cartridge. I replaced with a brand new one anyway and still says Replace black cartridge and it won't print. It keeps calibrating but the same message appears.

Are you using original ink toners or compatible ones?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
compatible ones
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
i have used the compatible cartridges without any problem for the past two years.
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

OK, have you updated the firmware on it? New firmware 5.3.2 will block compatable ones

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
no, it was working this morning. I printed an article of 26 pages and then it stopped working.
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

Can I connect into the system

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
i am uncomfortable paying another 39.00 on top of the 31.00. At this rate, I can almost buy a new printer
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

Ok we can continue as a Q&A then?

Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

Turn on and off

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it is asking me language, time zone etc
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it now says printer settings are complete and the message that emerges is Replace Black Cartridge
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

OK - so after a reset it is the same?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

OK so we have a hardware issue, when did you purchase it and how many prints are you doing a week?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it's about 3 years old and I do about 3 prints a week
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I have only needed to replace the cartridges once. I don't do a lot of printing
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

I would suggest replacing the printer. It is not under warranty anymore and it would cost quite a lot to get it fixed at a reseller.

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I kind of thought that might be the response. Do you have a good home printer, copier combo that connects easily to the wifi for apple computers, iPads ect.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
i am asking for a recommendation.
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

Yes of course, what is your budget?

Hello?

Are we finished?
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

Can you tell me your budget and I will recommend you a printer

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Around $200.00. The cartridges are so incredibly expensive but I do like the laser printer for professional printing and color quality
Technician: John Castle, Engineer replied 2 months ago

I would recommend canon, the laser printing range costs a bit more than other printers however, the quality is great and the build is much better.

They last unlike other printers and wont break down, best part is they come with a 3 year standard warranty.

They are expensive(ish) so I would suggest going into a Best Buy and purchasing an open box one were you can get 30-40% off and a set of toners.

If you would like to follow up please do however If you can use the STAR's above to rate me 5/5 it would be great!
