Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Lexmark x 4270

My printer is saying I need to remove the tape off the print cartridge or check trouble shooting. Does anyone know what I can do to resolve this issue. I have removed the tape and it's a brand new cartridge.

    I bought new cartridges today, put them in and the black works just fine. It keeps telling me that the color cartridge is missing and to remove tape or see troubleshooting. I tried cleaning with alcohol but still won't work. Please help!

Try cleaning the cartridger connections, in the carriage & on the cartridge. Use some lint free cotton & isopropyl alcohol, wipe from the top of the foil strip down to the printhead.

DO this until the wipe comes away clean. The connections in the carriage can also be just as dirty.

Put in new black cartridge and it says remove tape or trouble shoot, and of course the tape is removed


There is a piece of tape that goes around the new cartiage covering the print element. Remove it and the message should go away. Typically it starts on one side and has a easy to remove tab / flap.

Try this ---

take out the ink cartridges from printer
Take a tissue paper and make it damp with water
Then CLean the bottom part of cartridge where you see some golden contacts , just wipe it off with damp tissue .

Check if there is any ink coming on the tissue or not .
If No ink coming out , may be u forgot to pull out the protective tape or there is no ink inside the cartridge

Let me know what happens

My Lexmark 5470 won't print anything but the alignment page. Then it says to remove the tape from the cartridge. There is no tape on the cartridge. I have cleaned it and it still won't print. Help I need...


I have the same problem as posted by tahoeowner. The printer indicates that I have an alignment issue and tells me to remove any tape from the cartridge. There is no tape on either cartridge, nor will the printer work with any other cartridges. I'm getting tired of wasting paper and ink with all the printer's "retry" messages.

Incorrect ink level reading


kiwipom, While ink cartridges look like plastic cups that only hold ink...they are not. The information the printer needs to think it has a "NEW" set of ink cartridges is on the cartridge itself. You must fakeout the printer to believe you are inserting "new lexmark" inks. Printer companies make money from the repeated sale of the ink, not the printer itself. I had an old epson that I would refill I would then have to place pieces of tape on the cartridge turn the printer on, remove the cartridge move the tape to another side of the cartridge turn on again etc. Anyway lexmark may need the same. When the new original cartridges show try them first to get the printer "thinking" correctly. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
