My documents will not print the colored part. just Black and white


I would first check to see how low the color cartridge is. If it is out of ink, you will need to replace it.
Your Lexmark has two cartridges, one for colors and one for black.
To check the level of the ink cartridges, go to the Lexmark Solution Center. This is the software that was installed to run you Lexmark printer.
Check the cartridge ink level images that appear on each tab. If a cartridge is low, or if you have received an Ink Low message on the computer screen, install a new cartridge. An empty or low cartridge is marked with an exclamation point ( ! ).

To order print cartridges:

1 }}--> }}-->Open the }}--> }}-->Lexmark Solution Center .

2 }}--> }}-->Click the Contact Information tab.

3 }}--> }}-->Click Ordering Ink and Supplies.
For help installing a cartridge, go to How to install the print cartridge.

Changed black ink caertridge but still getting the low ink warning


If you are using a remanufactured cartridge, the low ink warning is actually normal. Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink. Unfortunately, when the cartridges are remanufactured, the chip is unable to be reset. Here is a link to a site that sells remanufactured cartridges on how to bypass the low ink warning on Lexmark printers:

Lexmark X83 prints streakily or not at all


Have you used a new cartridge.

Do the test for running and cleaning new cartridge heads and the alignment procedure..

(Go to Start, settings, printers, right click on printer then click properties, cartridge maintenance.)

Other thing that might cause problem is build up of ink in right side of machine below printer cartridges.

You will have to strip down machine to get at this area.
Make a note of exactly what action you take when doing this so that you can bits back together.

I use cotton buds to get at the build up of ink or tissue wound round end of pointed object.
Go gently. When you have cleared what you can care reassemble bits and go through above procedure again. Check for any unusual noises that may denote part of mechanism has worn.

Lex 5150 - not printing black well


what you may have to do is clean the rollers, good place to clean is where you insert the cartridges, open the lid so the machine thinks your going to repalce the ink, cut the power from the mains, now you can proceed to to clean the inside, remove both in cartradges and clean where they instert, toilet roll or kitchen roll will do because they soak up the ink, then, and be very gentle, slide the mechanism to the left hand side so you can clean underneath, after cleaning power the printer up so that it still thinks you are changing the ink, the cartridge housing should be where you can access them so you can the put the ink back in, then you need to use the the lexmark software to re-align the cartridges and also print a test page, keep on doing this until the inkjets are performing properly

Lexmark X83 Changed black cartridge print warns Black ink low Prints so faintly can't be read


the printer heads probably need cleaning. If you go to control panel>printers and scanners> right click the printer you are using> click in properties, there should be an option there for maintenance. Choose clean print heads. When the heads have been cleaned print out the result. If this has improved but is still a bit faint repeat the steps until the page is clearly readable.

Black cartridge not activating properly


There's a blue protective strip on the bottom of the cartridge when you buy it, and it needs to be removed before you put the cartridge in the printer.
