No - you have to have both cartridges in the holders, even if you use an empty color cartridge. the printer has to detect both. it will guide you through the rest of the steps.

Have a lexmark x5495 and have new cartridges. when printer is turned on, message states left cartridge incorrect.


Make sure that you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges and the correct versions for your model. The Lexmark X5495 takes 28/34 black or 29/35 color cartridges.
Try to re-insert your left cartridge and make sure it is properly seated in the carrier.
You can also try to reinsert your old left cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

Lexmark X1290. I have been using the black cartridge....its still got ink in it and I am getting a Cartridge Missing Error. I have cleaned the cartridge and still no luck. What else can I do to fix the...


Try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Launch the application from All Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series Printer > Tools > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal lines. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Once done, try to print again and check if black is printing properly now. If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the other is fautly.

Cartridge Error message on our Lexmark X5150


The Lexmark machines are designed to kick out anything it suspects may be refilled. If your old cartridge has bad print nozzles this may be tripping the error. Printers are typically for sensitive with their color cartridges anyway because the manufacturers make more money on the color ones. You can try looking around the settings on the machine and in the printer preferences to see if you can tell it to ignore the ink levels and see if you can continue to print.

Changed black ink and get error #1203


Anytime your All-In-One has a problem, make sure:
• Your All-In-One is on.
• The scanner is unlocked.
• You removed the stickers, transparent tape, and foam from the bottom of the print cartridges. For help, see page 39.
• The paper is loaded correctly.
• You installed both of the print cartridges. The Lexmark X5100 Series will only work if you have both cartridges installed. For help installing the cartridges, see page 38 in your manual.

Lexmark x6100 wont print black ink just changed thought it might


To solve the printing problem..

# 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.

Not printing anything but bold black strips


you need to check if the cartridge is ok. take out the cartridge and reboot your printer. if it ask for a cartridge, turn off the printer and install the cartridge., if problem still persists, then try changing your cartridge with a new one. If problem still persists, i suggest reinstall the drivers of the printer. Pm me if your problem is solved. thank you .

Color cartridge missing


You may want to remove the power brick at the back of your printer, wait a few seconds and reinsert back. Then try the steps listed in the user guide to install new carts, page 42.

Colored Ink problem


Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for the Z35. They should be #26 (color) and #16 (black).

Make sure the contacts are clean where the cartridge connects to the printer electrically. A little alcohol wipe is good for this. Clean contacts on both the cartridge and the carrier in the printer.
