IT WON'T PRINT DO i NEED A USB CABLE IF SO WERE DO i PLUG IT INTO ON PRINTER? THANK YOU ALSO DO i NEED A BLACK INK CARTRIDGE?


Hello Grannie,

You will need a printer USB cable to connect the printer to your computer. These cables a standard for all printers and look something like thispatzky.jpg.
You should find a square like opening on the back of the printer to connect the cable.

As for the ink cartridges, I believe lexmark only requires either a color cartridge or a black cartridge to be installed. Use one of the two and the printer should work.

Thanks,

Pat

Right hand side page print quality very poor, almost unreadable


this is cause of the lens is dirty with toner droping..
open the front cover and on the right side, there is a level for you to pull out.. at the right side of the printer, open the small cover and you will be able to find a cleaner. To clean..pull out the holder few times.. by applying slight pressure..that will clean the bottom lens..and u should be able to print out fine now..

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

Dell A940 and A960 printers will not print in black ink, just purchased ink cartridges from Office Max, have deleted all info from computer of previous A940 and A960 printers, reinstalled program via disc....


I had the exact same problem with a replacement black cartridge directly from DELL. I called support, and they just had me clean the cartridge manually by swiping the print strip, then running the standard cleaning commands in the computer. I had to do that a couple times, but eventually the black ink started working again. VERY ODD. I hated dealing with it, but these steps worked to fix it eventually. Hope that helps.

Incompatible Ink Cartridge notice with proper HP ink


These types of severe cartridge errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print cartridge(s) problem", etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics of the HP #74 / 75 (or 74XL/75XL) cartridge(s) are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge, are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on most models which use HP 74/75 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:
