Make sure there are no print jobs stuck in the queue. If you're using Windows, go to the Control Panel > Printers > double-click on the Lexmark print object. Delete all print jobs pending. If you can't clear all print jobs, follow the steps below:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)


Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.


Reboot your computer. Then, try to scan again.

After you changed the printhead, even full cartridges need some time to fill up the head. So just copy a newspaper, put in a normal sheet of paper, and tell the printer it is a Photo, with Photo paper. It then will press the most ink.
If one of the colours start, it could take a complete A4 photo, before all colours are coming through.
I assume you did install the new head correct and not something else was defect before you started to change the head anyway. Because when something else was defect in the first place, a new head won't change that.

Check and see is the printer sitting over a heat source like home heater / water heater or electric heater.
External heat will dry up ink.
Try to relocate printer and computer to a cooler spot.

Try using the Lexmark Printer Home when scanning. If you have a PC, to access it click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > Printer Home. You can scan to a .jpeg, PDF or .doc.

If you're scanning from the control panel of your printer and you're getting an error message, "Cannot Retrieve Application List", most probably your firewall is blocking your printer from downloading the applications. You might want to add the Lexmark files in the exception of your firewall. Click on the link on how to add exceptions to your firewall.

If you're trying to scan to email (email client), try to check this link: http://bit.ly/k0w0Hp

Make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If you are, try the steps below:

- Update the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.
- Perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If you still have the same problem after performing those steps, it could be a problem with the printhead. You might want to contact Lexmark's technical support.
