Where is the toner cartridge and how do I find it?


Plug the Lexmark 2600 into an electrical outlet and press the power button. Allow the unit to power up. The power button will turn green when ready.


Turn on the Printer and Open the top cover of the Lexmark 2600 by lifting the cover upward. you will find all cartridges down there.



Now you see how to replace them


Remove the black ink cartridge from it's packaging. Remove the tape from the black ink cartridge first and place the cartridge into the left ink cartridge holder. Press the cartridge down into until you hear it lock into place. Close the ink cartridge holder lid by pressing it down firmly. This secures the ink cartridge in place.


Remove the colored ink cartridge from the packaging and remove the tape from the cartridge. Place the cartridge into the right cartridge holder and press down until it clicks into place. Push down the cartridge holder lid.


Close the lid of the Lexmark 2600 and allow the print cartridges to align. The power light will be blinking while the cartridges are being aligned; once the power light turns solid, the printer is ready for use.

I have a HP 2600 color printer that I would like to print only with the black ink. Can I remove the empty colored cartridges and override their settings for the black print only?


No.
The Color cartridges must stay in the machine or it will not feed the paper through.
It is a colour printer, and will always need cartridges. Even if set up for mono printing, there mat still be a tiny amount of colour toner added to the page. (Model dependant)

My Canon MP190 will not print with only the black cartridge installed. Is there a way around this? It doesn't make sense to be required to buy both when I could buy a brand new printer with cartridges for...


the ink can probably just be left empty in the tray, this will be color has no ink left, but black dose, hence you should be able to print with the black only now. taking out color or tricolor will result in nothing being printed. some printers have the option to select black and white print modes only, this will be your best bet to use only black and white. and will yield more then 15% efficiency over color that uses far more ink due to pixelation and blending modes.

I put in a new color cartridge and my printer, not compatible..


Consider this: Using name brand cartridges is more expensive... but works. If you're using the name brand replacements... good. If you've chosen to use refilled ink, some of the features do not work as well as the original replacements. I used refilled cartridges in my Lexmark All-In-One and the "Ink needs refill" applet did not work correctly... so I turned it off...

Can't print black and white only with Lexmark 2600!


Hi MikeC,

Most of the time this is due to the black cartridge being out of ink. The Lexmark uses all the colors to create black when the black ink cartridge runs out, but won't let you print black because it is essentially saving ink.

Hope that's the reason and it isn't the printer failing. Good luck! :)
