Question about Lexmark Z640 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark z640 has stopped printing - goes through the motions but no ink on page

Printer was working fine - plenty of ink - switched it off to move it somewhere else - reconnected to same laptop but now it just rols out blank pages - sounds as if it's printing but no ink appears. have removed cartridge and replaced it but noticed that i didn't get the window which asks the questions about "is this a new cartridge" etc, so it's as if it's not installing the cartridge after i've removed it. won't print a test page - just blank.
thanks

Some third party cartridges will not work with your printer as they are remanufactured from used cartridges.
It is more expensive to buy genuine Lexmark ink, but atleast you know it will work.
You may try reinstalling the driver before buying new ink.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Hi. My lexmark z640 printer has stopped working. When i double click the z640 icon on the desktop the window opens and says that the current job is deleting, this has been like this for hours. tried to...


Try to clear the print queue first before sending a new print job. Follow these steps to clear print jobs stuck in the print queue(for Windows):

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder

3. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

4. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)

5. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.

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.
