Printer problems Dell 720

  Mr Zippo 20:44 03 Nov 2007


A Dell 720 printer came as part of a Dell package I purchased two or three years ago. I didn't use it straight away as I had some ink to use up with my existing Epson 440. When I came to use the 720 it fails to print in black - word documents come out blank! - and the colour is not great. Someone suggested the ink in the Dell cartridges had dried up due to lack of use, so I bought replacements last week. Same problem. I dont want to spend a fortune on a service, particularly if exceeds the economic value of the printer. Any ideas?

I've got the same problem, but with the colour cartridge. If I put the black one in the colour side, it prints, but the colour side seems to be blocked. Haven't found a solution as yet.

"Any ideas?"

Buy another printer. A new Dell 720 costs about tuppence three farthings.

It's not worth repairing, unfortunately
