If the ink is that old it is most likely dried up most computer shops will have Value compatible ink at a much cheaper price then big box stores

Lexmark 730 not printing


Regarding the Lex1 cartridge's no printing/severe fade (or similar) during printing, my answers are provided below:

For the poor print quality problem (degraded image quality) you are observing, we suggest you first visit the "Print Quality" page of the "General Information" section of the Inkjet 411 website and follow the suggestions provided: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1432

A. 1. Cartridge & Printer maintenance should also be evaluated - ensure both ink cartridges and flexible driver contact cables (where the cartridge interfaces to the carriage inside the printer) are thoroughly clean: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.2. Perform a hot-water flush on the suspect ink cartridge, refer to video procedure here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.3. Run a quick test print to evaluate cartridge performance (i.e. 4-color test print):

For information on North American ink refill services (for Lexmark 1, 2 and 3 ink cartridges) at a major retailer near you (should you wish to save ~50% on ink costs), general printing problem resolutions or advanced Lexmark printer diagnosis procedures (advanced cartridge diagnostic tests/cartridge error bypass & printer reset methods, etc.), please visit Inkjet411: http://www.inkjet411.com

Blank pages printing


Sounds like the printhead is pretty severely dried. As standard cleaning cycles haven't helped I would recommend picking up some LC900 cleaning cartridges from eBay etc. These are cartridges filled/partially filled with cartridge flush and break down ink inside the printer.

Most of them contain a mix of ink and flush and you can carry on printing as usual. Given the severity of the dried/blocked printhead you have I would recommend just running cleaning cycles, but leave 10 minutes or so between cleans to avoid overheating the printhead.

Blank Pages HP Officejet d125xi


Here are a few things to try: 1. Remove and then reinstall the ink cartridges 2. Clean the ink nozzles because they may be clogged which can be done manually or sometimes using the printer control panel like so: Open the print or fax window > right click on ink jet printer icon > select Properties > on the general tab click printing preferences > click services tab > click clean the print cartridge. If you have this option it will automatically clean the print nozzles, if not you will have to do it manually (check your documentation if you still have it for details on how to do this). Take cu-tips and remove the ink cartridges > dip the cu-tips in distilled water (not tap water) and squeeze any excess water out of the cu tip > Hold ink cartridge so that the nozzle plate faces up and use the swab to wipe clean the area around the nozzle plate > Hold cartridge up to light to make sure all dust, dirt, dried ink, or cotton fibers are not left behind > Dry them off and replace into printer and print a test page. 3. Try different settings for the print quality to see if any changes occur. 4. Turn the printer on and leave it on for about 30 minutes to warm up to loosen or melt any dried ink that may have blocked the nozzles. If this does not work there may be more serious problems that will require a qualified technician to deal with. Hope this helps and let me know if you need further assistance.

Hi,

I undertand that you are receiving a blank page when printing from computer.

Please follow the below given instructions to get the issue resolved which is caused due to DEP feature of Operating sytem.

Disable the Data Execution Prevention in Windows XP and check by following the below steps:

1. Click on Start

2.Control Panel->System->Advanced->Performance->Settings->Data Execution Prevention

It needs to be set to "Turn on for essential windows programs only", which is the default.


If you set it to "Turn on for all programs except those I specify", then the all-in-one driver stops working and you get blank pages.

1) Right-click on My Computer, and select Properties.

2) Click on the Advanced tab.

3) Under Performance, click Settings.

4) Click the Data Execution Prevention tab.

5) Select the Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select: option.

6) Click Add....

7) Browse to C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\hpzeng05.exe
Or
C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\hpzeng07.exe

and click Open.

8) Click Apply.

9) Click OK, and OK again.

Then restart the computer so as the chages to be effective

PRINTING BLANK SHEETS


You need to put the test page that was printed into the scanner part of the printer and then press the scan/blue button. This is so the printer can calibrate the new ink. When you have done that the next time you turn on the printer a blank page will not be printed. When you next change ink you will have to repeat the above procedure.
