If the printer has been sitting idle for a length of time, the printheads can clog.
Try running the Dell printer's Head Cleaning Utility.

Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Rightclick on your printer's icon > Properties > Maintenance

From there you should see the controls for Printhead Cleaning.
You should see an improvement after about 2-3 runs.
If not, we will have to try something else.

Fold a paper towel into quarters and moisten with water.
Take out one of the cartridges and (very gently) see if it will blot a consistent pattern with light pressure.

If the cartridges will not blot, they have dried up and you will have to replace them.

Thanks for posting back with your findings !

It's generally recommended that with an inkjet printer you should try to print at least one full-color page a week to keep the printhead clear.

I'll often print the 10-day forecast from Weather.com to have something at least semi-useful as a result.
