    will not print only blank paper comes out

  • terimotley Dec 11, 2008

    I just cleared a paper jam, and now, though the printer makes all the right printing noises and motions, and the print utility looks normal, the printer just spits out blank paper. The jammed paper came out in pieces, and I had to get it out both from the back and the front, but I think I got it all. How can I check to be sure that all the paper pieces are out?

Lexmark pro901 stopped printing black ink


Try updating the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update. Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. If not, replace the cartridge.

My printer does not acknowledge presence of ink cartridges.will only print in black


It could be that the color cartridge is not seated properly or just needs cleaning.
Try to re-seat your color ink cartridge. Open the printer cover > remove the color cartridge > re-insert the color cartridge and make sure it's properly seated > close the printer cover. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark Z600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center / All-In-One 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.

After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Please take out the new cartridges and re-position them correctly i.e. color cartridge on the left and black cartridge on the right seating. Check that you hear a click sound when the cartridge is placed in the seating. Print a test page. Then switch off the printer for some time. Re start the printer and now carry out the gray scale printing.

I have a dell all in one printer 944. When I turn it on it keeps sending the message, "change ink cartridge" I have changed the cartridge twice and message remains the same. Is it broken?


Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message, please read bleow.

Black cartridge = black side(left side) Color cartridge = Color side(right side)

Photo Cartridge = Black side(left side) Color cartridge = Color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It is also possible to get a new ink cartridge with a bad sensor. Please take it to the place of purchase for a refund or a replacement one.

Black is not printing, I changed black ink cartridge, and I performed print head cleaning at least 6times still no luck. What causes black not to print?


Please check if the cartridge has been seated correctly. When you replace it it there should be a little click sound which confirms that it has seated properly.
Also, I hope you removed the thin cellphone covering from the ink pad. It is there to prevent drying up when the cartridge is packed for long storage. Check
If it still does not work then the print head is damaged which you have to replace it.

Double check to make sure that you have seated the ink into the head correctly and that the printhead is locked in correctly. Sounds like the printhead isn't in properly and the printer can't read the inks as it normally does.

I changed the black ink cartridge and the printer


Calibrate your new blank ink cartridge, have some nozzle check, cleaning check, and printer alignment. This are procedure that new ink cartridge will have to calibrate before you use. Epson printer are very sensitive when capable of changing ink cartridge. Unlink HP directly work without any print test because the cartridge head and ink join together, Epson with ink cartridge and the head separate.
Have some test on it at Printer Maintenance.
I'm sure 100% works on it.
Good luck!
