Re: lexmark p315

You mention two problems, are they both still active? The memory card issue could be a defective card; I've had brand new cards not work a number of times. It could also be a defective card reader in the printer but its more likely the memory card may simply need to be re-formatted. - Save any pictures you may have on the card to your PC if you need to keep them. - Format the card using the camera utilities. Do not use the computer to perform the format. - Try it again. If formatting the card doesn?t do it you might try another card you know works. If it does work in your printer then its probably the card, if not that strongly suggest the printer card reader is at fault. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

I have replaced black ink but printer keeps telling me to replace black ink cartridge

If the it's a remanufactured cartridge (not genuine), the printer will not detect the ink in the cartridge.
If it's genuine, you might want to give Lexmark's technical support a call to have the cartridge replaced.

Hello,I haven't been able to use my printer for some time and the ink heads are blocked,can you help please?

To clean the cartridge via the operator panel, follow the steps below:
  1. Press the Menu button once. The Photo Menu will appear.
  2. Press the down arrow until Clean Cartridge (Press SELECT) appears.
  3. Press Select to begin the cleaning process.
  4. When the page has finished printing, press Stop/Clear to exit the Photo Menu.
However, if you have made several tries already yet cartridges are still not printing properly, it may be time for you to replace those old cartridges with new ones.

I refilled my Lexmark cartridge but it continues to say I need to install a new cartridge. The printer model is x2670.

Hello there,

The reason why your Lexmark printer keeps on telling you to install new cartridge because the printer have ink cartridge detection. Meaning it will detect whether that particular cartridge is an old one or not.

Each Ink Cartridges have its code and it will be registered to the printer once you have connected it. The printer will assume the ink level and once it is empty, that particular Lexmark Ink Cartridge will be registered to your printer as an empty ink cartridge and needed to be replace with a new one.

I would suggest getting a genuine new cartridge instead of refilling the ink cartridges.

the issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad... I would suggest you to try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again. But if you tried that and it doesn't work just call up their support number and check for replacement.

Lexmark P315 InkJet Photo Printer Ink Cartridge Problem

Hi, I know this might sound really bad but have you made sure that you have taken ALL the little bits of plastic and covers that are sometimes on the new cartidges?

Also are you using the exact same cartridge as before?

Another thing you could do to bypass the problem is to have your one refilled. That will at least fix the problem for the immediate.

Does your printer have some software where you can run a clean print head and do an align and other stuff. If so you could try those too.
Lets us know.
