Actually your printhead on the cartridges is probably clogged. I usually take the cartridges out, wet a paper towel and put in a dish and put in microwave for 20 seconds, then put the cartridge printhead on the paper towel for 10 seconds, and then blot with a dry towel. You should see the various colors in the color and black cartridges. Do it several times until ink in freely flowing. Put back in printer and run a clean cycle and try printing normaly.

In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel.......... Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer the Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black on the left........ Unplug the Power Supply from the printer....... Press and hold the Stop/Clear button on the Printer and Plug in the Power Supply while holding the Stop/Clear button it should say clearing on the screen at that point u can go ahead and release the Stop/Clear button.......... Now the Printer will ask for the Date Time and Country Language......... Set everything up...... Now try to Print i am sure it should work.......... Good Luck............

can you clarify? This is a fairly straightforward replacement.....Lift up the face of the machine, wait for the carriage to come over and fully stop moving, remove old cartridge and replace with new.....maybe more info on what is actually happening or not.....

Please follow the steps given below:
1 Turn the printer/All-In-One off and unplug the power cable from the outlet.
2 Open the printer/All-In-One lid so that the cartridge carrier can be accessed.
3 Remove the print cartridges.
4 Using a dry, clean cloth wipe the carrier contacts gently from top to bottom.
5 Repeat Step 4 for the other cartridge slot (if applicable).
6 Reinsert the cartridges, slide the cartridge carrier to its original position, and close the printer/All-In-One lid.
7 Plug the printer/All-In-One back into the power outlet and turn it back on.
Next, try to perform a Self test:
1 Press the Copy button on the operator panel once (this button is located under Mode).
2 Press the Options button ten times until Maintenance appears on the display.
3 Press the left arrow button (-) once. The display should now read Self Test Page.
4 Press Select. The printer will print a hardware test page.

Unfortunately I suspect there is a major fault that isn't worth repairing.
My father had a X1270 which developed a similar fault which could not be cured with cleaning or replacement cartridges. Dismantling it revealed no physical problems with connectors or cables, so it had to be the electronics.
Cost of a repair by a Lexmark agent would be far more than a new printer ! Printer only 15 months old when fault appeared.
My father has now moved and his new neighbour has just thrown his Lexmark in the bin - also less than two years old.
Personally would not touch a Lexmark again.

Well due to some problem in cartridge you would be facing this problem.however you can do try this.
Please clean your cartridge once again with some spirit.
Fix it well in the printer afterward.
Than use normal paper and print in color.
If than also it does not work that means the bar-code of the cartridge has problem in it so the printer is unable to read that code, so for that you need to change the whole cartridge.
Or if your printer had valid in warranty period and it still in that period just give it to a service center.
If you still had any confusion regarding the same problem or nay other please do reply.
