Question about Lexmark Z640 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer shows ink levels full, but nothing prints...

It's been at least 6 months since ive tried printing anything. My Lexmark Z515 has been unplugged collecting dust in a spare room. I plugged it back up and everything seems to work..except the ink is invisable. I realize that i may just need to go buy more ink, but i was wondering if there might be something simple i'm missing here. Can ink cartridges go bad maybe?.. You tell me. please...

Yes .. The cartridges can dry up and or nozzles/heads get plugged. I ma not completely familiar with this printer but if it has a cleaning utility use it.

Why was my printer showing my print level to be 3/4 the way full for both the black & color, & then I went to print again and there are ? marks on my ink levels, & a error that says cartridge problem?


printers are calibrated to only measure ink levels for original cartridges ( Lexmark)
if you refill or use generic cartridges the machine will not read the levels and will send a ink level warning or will not print because it thinks the ink is out and will not work to protect the printer
Talk with a lexmark service center for proper diagnosis

  • Open up the "Printer Solution Center." If there is no icon on your desktop for your Lexmark printer, click on the "Start" menu button, which is located at the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Click on "All Programs," and then look for "Lexmark." Select the "Printer Solution Center.

    Choose "Install a new printer cartridge" under the "Maintenance" tab.

  • Click on "Next" until you see the "Print the Alignment page" option, then choose "Print."

  • Repeat steps 1,2 and 3 if the ink level gauge still isn't showing sufficient ink.

    Lexmark Z600 ONLY print test pages


    Seemes very daft, and sounds like a twit, but not really.

    When I recieved the new cartridge I placed it in the correct cartridge retainer in the printer matching up the dark green colour of the cartridge and the top clip, and it printed nothing even after a tryed re-seating it.
    So I placed it in the other thinking maybe I somehow might have placed it in the wrong slot, so I placed it in the other (Colour), and set that up as I did the other, and it printed a blurred page but then stopped printing.
    After that I then placed it back in the other cartridge retainer, set it up as the previous times when it did not work, and then it worked.

    Seems strange and simple, but it did not work the first time at all, and after faffing with it finally did.

    This might help someone, and then again might not.

    Lexmark Z517 wont print black ink


    I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.
