Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.
This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.
clean the print cartridge nozzles. On your computer, go to Start menu >
All Programs / Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > select Lexmark Solution
Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
Your printer will then print a clean test page forcing ink through the
cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your document again and to
check if print quality is achieved.
1. Remove the black cartridge
rub your finger against the small round opening at the bottom of the cartridge to see if you get ink on your finger.

I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.
