A roach and a broken piece of plastic from the feeder tray. I print about pages a month on the 6mp laser but only about 25 pages a month on the Dell. I don’t use the color one anyway, so my problem is solved. My message was 50c don’t know if that is the same as c50 my computer is at least years old and have never had a problem. When you turn the printer on the lcd will scroll a message to print an alignment page mine does this even for Dell cartridges.

Dell a940 error C50

I just want an answer to how to Last night I finally prevailed over the A print problem. This is MY priint and MY fix to the Dell A c50 or 50c cartridge error- First lets explain that my printer had a previous problem that I did not bother to completely fix.

Just wondering if anyone knows how to increase the counter setting or whatever tells the cartridge how many pages it can w940. I have not since tried to fix my color, nor do I care since I only use this printer for black printing. Not sure I have any answers yet either.


I found this blog quite by accident today looking for answers to why I was getting this error message. I’m buying a new printer tomorrow, and it will not be a Dell!!

I know what you deol Dell will not help you unless you pay for help. I start getting a “Low Ink Alert” after just a few color prints. Dell won’t help because warranty is expired.

I think the black cartridge is the problem as it is seeping extra ink.

Some new Lexmark cartridges can be used but they will show empty or so I am told. Privacy Policy Terms of Use. This site in other languages x.

Fix It” and I look forward to any advice you have on solving this problem. After cleaning it all well I did the following: The cartridge prints perfectly.

The black tops are a lot harder to get off, they are glued all prinnt way round. Maybe Dell has something going on so it can detect the same cartridge going in over and over and does that so you have to buy a new one? Thanks for marking this as the answer.

Good luck everyone, and Merry Christmas! The cartridge actually started to bleed out ink as some of you have said in your posts.

Just found your replies on other Dell printers. The complaints are numerous.

I will never buy a Dell system again. I know what is wrong. One day I may try and fix the color, but probably not. I am putting my VW on Craigs List to sell to someone else who needs a good wireless printer that doesn’t mind spending a lot of money on ink cartridges.

I printed a test page and it was BAD, with slurry colors and almost no crisp black showing. Instead I used a qtip to clean off the older print cartridge that was in the color side.
