It sounds like your cartridges should be alligned. In your Lexmark 1180 Program Group (Start->All Programs->Lexmark 1180) there should be a Lexmark Solution Center or Lexmark Productivity Studio.

If Lexmark Solution Center - go to the maintenance tab and run the alignment process.
If Lexmark Productivity Studio - click on Printer Maintenance and then select Align

Lexmark x5470 not printing on all the page, some text are missing


What is the operating system installed on your computer? It could be a printer driver issue or could be due to clogged cartridge nozzles. Try the steps below to fix the problem:

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 5400 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

If that doesn't help, please visit the Lexmark website to update your Lexmark X5470 printer driver. Select your operating sytem > click on FILTER > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation. Then try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

INkCartrige error 50c. Will not print. Display this note each time I try to make copy or print from computer.


Hi there

You should always mention the printer model as well as what operating system you use.

This is what i found on LEXMARK's website about your error, and it seems you have one or 2 faulty cartridges, or you are using compatible cartridges instead of Lexmark Originals:

Problem Error messages; Error: "Cartridge Error 50C"; Cartridge error; Black cartridge missing; Color cartridge missing Solution Cartridge Error 50C
Your print cartridge has shorted.

  1. Power off your All-in-One and unplug it.

  2. Plug in your All-in-One again and turn it on.

  3. Uninstall and then reinstall your cartridges.

  4. If this does not resolve the issue, try the troubleshooting steps for the other cartridge errors below.

Error: Black Cartridge Missing
The black cartridge is not installed. (Install cartridge PN 82)
Error: Color Cartridge Missing
The color cartridge is not installed (Install cartridge PN 83)
Cartridge Error
Complete the following instructions:

  1. Power off your All-in-One.

  2. Use both hands to lift up the scanner unit until the scanner support holds it open.

  3. Turn the All-in-One on. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

  4. Remove the color print cartridge.

  5. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  6. If the error message reappears, replace the black print cartridge with a new print cartridge.
    If it does not repeat steps 1-3 and then go to step 7.

  7. Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black print cartridge.

  8. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  9. If the error message occurs again, replace the color cartridge.

  10. If an error message reappears, repeat steps 1-3 and reinstall both print cartridges.

  11. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  12. If you receive the error message again, replace both cartridges.
Hope it helps

Hi,

Sure you can install without a disc but you need to download the setup from Lexmark.

Click on the operating system that you have and then download.

Lexmark x1180 blank ink not coming through


You can refill cartridges only a certain number of times.
Check the copper contacts and see if they look like new. any amount of wear and they wont work anymore. That being said, All printer manufacturers say to buy new and not refill.Maybe that is a moneymaker for them, however, I have never had good luck with refilled cartridges.

Lexmark x1180 printer all in one


Clean the contacts on the cartidge and printer ( open the replace ink door wait for the printhead to come to center and turn off power) if that does not work then replace cartridge, it might be a recycled one that they did not chane the chip.
