# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

New ink, printer's status is "ready", but it gives out blank pages. The machine acts as if it was printing with clear or invisible ink. Looks like it's doing its job, but you don't see it. Thank you

After installing new ink cartridges, when printing black and white, every 4th line of text is only partially printed


Some of the black print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

My printer has not been used in a few years and it is not printing now.....do you think the ink is dried out? If I only purchase the black ink....will it work?


ink drys out quickly and yes years means its dry.
no you can't just buy a black and make it work. lexmark requires working color and black if the printer prints for both. kinda an unfortunate thing. honestly i suggest getting a kodak printer. tons better than a lexmark and the print is the cost of your 2 ink carts. also the ink for kodak is ~30$ usd total for both black and color not just one of them.
