Lexmark s300-s400 will not print black

My lexmark printer will not print in black. I have replaced the cartage twice so I know that is good. Test pages reveal a VERY slight gray color where the black should be but it is extremely faint. I have cleaned all the heads and realigned everything to not success.

SOURCE: Printer not printing properly

When you changed the cartridges, the printer automatically prits a test / calibration page. This page must be placed in the scanner, then you have to press the "scan" key (the green one). It will calibrate an align the system. Then you'll be able to print.

SOURCE: Black Lines running down the right side outside of the print area

It may be the fuser. Take it out and inspect the roller on it:

  1. Switch off the device, disconnect the mains plug and wait for 30 minutes before continuing.
  2. Ensure that the bypass tray is closed, or you will not be able to open the front cover.
  3. Open the front cover by pressing the release buttons as shown.
  4. Pull the front cover down towards you.
  5. Disconnect the green plug - squeeze the sides of the plug and pull.
  6. Push the left and right levers outward to unlock the unit.
  7. Pull the unit towards you as shown and lift it clear of the device.
  8. Check the roller for wear marks, If so replace it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: Brother DPC-165C has 'Init Unable AF' error

Yup. I suspect the head has been removed from the unit. There are adjustments on some printers. It was assembled wrong. The grating noise is likely the auto cleaner. If it cannot go 'home' the unit will not initialize. Possibly the head detect sensor is broken or covered. If the head will not home (moves out and back more than once or slams home hard), 'Init Unable AF'. You may be able to order a service manual from Brother for this. A repair shop can order the manual as well. (I suspect you need a new print head as well. You might want to replace the printer) see tips on bubblejet printers.

Compatible with windows 10?


Looks as though it may well be compatible as it mentions models around '7350'. Are you running it on Win8.1?

Products with limited support These products were developed before Lexmark had knowledge of the re-designed Windows 10 printing system, but will support basic printing features. Microsoft may choose, at its own discretion, to completely discontinue printing support for these products in future Windows 10 operating system updates.
Use existing Windows 8, 8.1 print drivers for the following inkjet models:
Lexmark S815/S816 (Lexmark S800 Series)Lexmark Pro901/Pro902/Pro905 (Pro800-Pro900 Series)Lexmark Pro802/Pro805 (Pro800-Pro900 Series)Lexmark Pro702/Pro705/Pro706/Pro708 (Pro700 Series)Lexmark Pro202/Pro205/Pro208 (Pro200-S500 Series)Lexmark S602/S605/S608 (S600 Series)Lexmark S502/S505/S508 (Pro200-S500 Series)Lexmark S402/S405/S408 (S300-S400 Series)Lexmark S302/S305/S308 (S300-S400 Series)Lexmark X2650/X2670/X2690 (2600 Series)Lexmark X4975/X4950 (4900 Series)Lexmark X6675/X6650/X6690 (5600-6600 Series)Lexmark X5650/X5690 (5600-6600 Series)Lexmark X7675 (7600 Series)Lexmark X3650/X3690 (3600-4600 Series)Lexmark X2600/X2620/X2630 (2600 Series)Lexmark Z2300/Z2330/Z2390 (Z2300 Series)Lexmark Z2420/Z2490 (Z2400 Series)Lexmark X4630/X4650/X4690 (3600-4600 Series)

Missing Yellow cartridge in printer can I still print?


If you are using one of Lexmark printers that has the new ink system based upon individual tanks (like the following models: S300, S400, S500, S600, Pro200, Pro700, Pro800 & Pro900 Series), these models require all cartridges to have ink them to continue printing.
However, there are some previous Lexmark models that are able to continue printing even if one cartridge is empty.
Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this answer your concern, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

  1. With your document/file open, click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Click Printing Preferences/ Properties.
  4. In the Lexmark S300 Series Printing Preferences window, select print using black ink only.
  5. Click OK to save the settings.
  6. Click Ok again to print your file.

For Mac operating system:
  1. With your document/file open, click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media in a drop down box and select print in black and white.

If you wish to set this as your default print setting, please follow steps below:
For Windows:
  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Open Printers and Faxes.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark S300 Series print object and click on Properties.
  4. In the Lexmark S300 Series Properties window, go to Advanced tab. Click on Printing Defaults.
  5. Under Ink Use, select Print using black ink only. Click OK.
  6. Click OK button in the Lexmark S300 Series Properties window to save the changes.
Your printer will print in black only the next time you send a print job to the printer.

For Mac:
  1. With the file (you wish to print) open, click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media in a drop down box and select print in black and white.
  4. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).

Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.
Note: The 100 standard cartridges yield around 175 ISO Pages. You can also save on ink and stretch your ink investment if you use only 100XL high yield cartridges. These contain almost 3x as much ink as a standard cartridge for a small increment in price.
