Thanks, so even if I had a empty cartridge in the slot the printer would work.

No- the printer/fax has to detect both cartridges, even if you use an empty cartridge in the color slot.

My printer is a lexmark 2600. i bought a black ink only. when i wanted to print, its not working. it said that i have to alignment it first. i did it already many times, but it's still not...


Some of the Lexmark printers have a sensor that looks for the cartridges and if one is missing it may not print.

The first thing you could try is to reload the Lexmark software from the CD that came with the machine and see if that works. If it does not, you may have to have a cartridge in the color slot to make it print. You could try an empty color cartridge in the slot if you cold find one.

Good luck................Pete

LEXMARK X63 NOT RECONIZING LEFT CART.


I did find a procedure online to clear the memory and that did the
trick. Here it is, may help someone in the future:

Open lid, take both cartridges out. Physically remove the power cord from outlet or back of unit. While pressing the Stop/Clear button, plug cord back and kee pressing until a message saying "clearing memory" comes on. Reinstall ink. You're done, the message should go away.

"color cartridge missing"


Try cleaning the contacts on both the color ink cartridge and the carriage with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. It nothing works, the color ink cartridge is likely faulty.

Check that your print quality is not set to "Draft" in Windows.
Check for ink residue on your color cartridge.
Try replacing the color cartridge

If all else fails...

My X63 printer is not working.


Try clearing the print queue under printer preferences and then try turning unit off and wait, then on again to reset it.

If the contacts are different, then you may have bought a damaged cartridge, or just simply the wrong cartridge and this would explain why your printer cannot recognise the cartridge. Make sure you bought the same number Lexmark cartridge as the old one. Return it to the store as a damaged cartridge if it is the exact same cartridge. Lexmark would not change the design of a working cartridge to exclude customers from using a printer.
