Printer cyles fine but no printing appears

The printer had been setting for a while. I installed new cartridges and everything runs fine. However, the ink isn't getting to the paper. Is there a need / procedure to clean the transfer tubing and print head?

You said you installed new cartridges. Did you install new printheads? These are probably what are giving you the problem. The printheads are treated as a consumable on this printer. (#11 printheads)

I just installed a new color cartridge in my 8650 Lexmark printer. The ink cartridge acts as if it is empty. Printer keeps telling me to align cargridge. Worked perfectly before the new ink installed. Not...


  1. On your computer, go to "Start," "Programs," "Lexmark Series." Click "Lexmark Control Program."
  2. Step 2 Select the "Cartridges" tab. Click "Change Cartridges." The Change Cartridges screen appears, displaying the animated instructions for installing or changing cartridges. When you have finished viewing the animation, click the "Finished" button.
  3. Step 3 Remove the tape covering the print head of the new print cartridge. Insert the new print cartridge as shown in the animation.
  4. Step 4 When the "Choose Cartridges" screen appears, select the cartridge(s) you installed in your printer from the list boxes. Click the appropriate box to reset the ink levels to full. Click "OK."
  5. Step 5 The Automatic Alignment screen appears. Click "Align" to align the print cartridges for best print quality. The printer prints a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. On the printed test page, locate the number that comes closest to forming a straight line under the bi-directional alignment pattern. Enter that number as the bi-directional alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge dialog box. Click "OK."

just to be sure i'm going to ask this ??.. have you removed the little sticky clear film located on the new cartridge? not sure what kind it is but double check that.. if that's not the case, i would go into your printer properties and check thru your options and be sure you do not have some setting set to off that would affect your color.. if there is a default option, set it back to default settings, then reboot.. hope this helps.. d

Will not print


Try using the 'clean cartridge' setting with your printer, this usually forces the ink through the installed cartridges.

Good luck!

CANON BJC-85 Won't print black...


Turn on printer, press cartridge button, remove cartridge. On left side of remaining cradle, unsnap the cradle, lift up and remove. Take the cradle to your sink, wet a paper towel, and GENTLY wipe the long print head with the wet paper towel. Then run a small stream of clear cool water through the cradle, from the round pad that your cartridge rests on, until the pad looks ink-free. Dry everything with tissues and a hair dryer set on low, replace cradle in printer, replace cartridge, turn on printer, press Resume until it beeps three times, which runs the deep cleaning program, and after the procedure is finished, your printer will print as new.
