Have you tried to uninstall and reinstall the printer? I've seen corrupted drivers cause this problem on a few older HP printers.

Scanning Pink


It could be due to your color cartridge. Try to do the clean cartridge function using the printer software on your computer.
  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 1200 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

Try to scan again to verify that the print quality has improved. If not, try to replace your cartridge.

My printer only prints in color I can not get it to print in black even after I change the black cartridge.What is my problem?


Try to open Lexmark Solution Center application on your computer and check if the software recognizes the ink levels of your cartridges. Go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series folder > Lexmark Solution Center.
You can also use the software to clean the cartridge nozzles for possible dirt and clogs. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Make sure you are inserting the correct color cartridge versions for the Lexmark X1150 (either #26 or #27).
Try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center, click Start > Programs > Lexmark X1100 Series > Lexmark X1100 Series Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page that will help clean the nozzles from possible dirt and clogs.
If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working cartridge (e.g. your old cartridge or another new cartridge). It could be a faulty cartridge issue.

Try to reseat your cartridges. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset itself. If that doesn't help, try to clean your cartridges and check if print quality improves. If you're using Windows, go to Start -> Programs -> Lexmark X74-X75 -> Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center -> Maintenance -> Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks.

You may have to change the communication format called the "Spool format."

Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:

1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."
3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.
4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark 1200 series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
If this does not help the situation, please describe any differences it does make.
