Nextlife Ink FAQs
Q: Is Dell planning on offering any other remanufactured ink in the future?
A: Dell will continue to evaluate the market, but has no current plans to introduce re-manufactured ink or toner.
Q: What should I do if I have a bad cartridge from a Dell Direct order within the 1 year warranty period?
A: Go to www.support.dell.com and chat or email Dell technical support to request a replacement. Please include your Dell Nextlife ink order number, contact full name, ship to address and phone number.
Q: What should I do if my printer is not detecting ink levels after installing new Nextlife Ink cartridges?
A: Printers are not able to read ink levels on most remanufactured ink cartridges. Ignore out of ink or low ink alerts and continue to print. We recommend users disable ink alerts on the printer when using remanufactured ink.

A: No. Nextlife Ink purchased through retail should be returned to the retailer for all product returns or warranty replacements.
