Try turning off the printer then reboot the PC, then turn on the printer if this doesn't work try the software may not be installed properly. Try the following:
1 Right-click the My computer icon.
For Windows XP, click Start to access the My computer icon.
2 Click Properties.
3 For Windows 98 or Windows Me, click the Device Manager tab.
For Windows 2000 or Windows XP, select the Hardware tab, and then click
the Device Manager button.
4 Look for the Other Devices category. If there are any Lexmark devices
shown here, highlight them and, then press the Delete key.
Note: The Other Devices category appears only when unknown devices
are present. Do not delete any Lexmark items unless they are
present under the Other Devices category.
5 Insert the CD, and install the software again. Do not restart the computer.

My ink cartridges are reading almost full and it says printing started and goes through the motions of printing my page...altho the page turns out blank. What do i do?


Get a swab and try cleaning the copper contacts at the base of the ink carriage. Then clean the base of the ink itself. Even a full cartridge can dry out around the nozzles if you go too long between print jobs.

Prints a blank page only


First try to clean the cart with following procedures if this did not work then heat walls of the cart with hair dryer for 3 to 5 min then insert the cartridges and try to print :
# 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.

Lexmark Ink Cartridge Issue


Ink cartridges do have a shelf life - usually about two years from manufacturing, but it's more likely that the nozzles have become dry or clogged as result of disuse. You may get things corrected by putting regular rubbing alcohol on a clean soft cloth and gently wiping the contact points between the printer and the cartridge. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to replace the cartridges.

Printer wont print, but it is going through the motions.


If ink cartridges are new, perform print head or maintenance cleaning at least 3x consecutively.

Blank page


Check to make sure the ink carts are actually expelling ink. To do so take them out, get a piece of paper towel and press the ink cart onto the bottom of the cart ( where the ink comes out ). If the ink comes out and you see the colors, Open the Lexmark Solution Center, click on Maintance, and click on "clean horizontal streak". If that does not work then chances are they are clogged and you will need to replace the printer. You can do so through Lexmark Tech Support if the printer is within the 1 year Warranty
