You have to recalibrate the print heads. The printer should have a utility to do this. Or do it from the properties pane on the printer's icon.

S605 ink printing patchy


A firmware update for your model addresses print quality issues. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark S400 Series Firmware Update. If more than one download is listed for your model, choose the first download in the list. If it is the wrong firmware level, an error message will tell you which firmware level is correct.
Try to print again to verify that the print quality has improved.

Should the problem continue, it could be that the printhead itself is the problem. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

Our kodak ESP5 wont print properly. We have installed new ink (a number of times now) but the ink is still very faded when printed. fed up of having to buy ink and still wont print out dark.


Sounds like print head needs replacing, try the troubleshooting guide on Kodak website to confirm, appears to be a common problem with these Kodak printers, if new it should be covered under warrenty although if not they are expensive

Print keeps fading, even though using new ink


check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

I have just changed my black ink cartridge however still patchy


Typically you do not have to change the color cartridge when you replace the black cartridge.
As far as the spotty printing, it sounds like you have some clogged nozzles caused by the lower quality of ink in refilled or aftermarket cartridges. There cartridge inks may not be up to specification. This is especially true for the ultra fine printers.
To clear the problem you need to insert an OEM cartridge, run the deep nozzle cleaning utiliity at least twice followed by the alignment utility. This should clear up the problem with the spotty and washed out printout.
Let me know if this solves your problem otherwise we can explore other solutiions. For the record, which printer do you have?
Please rate this solution. Thanks.

I have a canon 1200s printer that has new canon cartridges, ALTHOUGHI'vw clEANED THE PRINTHEAD IT STILL PRINTS ONLY PATCHY, FADED COPY WITH LINES RUNNING THROUGH IT. ANY IDEAS? THANK YOU C


Run a a deep cleaning cycle then run the alignment test and realign the head correctly. Then print the test sheet again. It sometimes takes a few cleaning cycles to get the ink flowing correctly especially if the prinetr is in a warm environment and has not been used for a while.

Incomplete patchy printing


Hello,

Please try to do a printer head cleaning. You can do it by getting a small earbud and soak it with a small amount of water. Or try to adjust it by doing an alignment. Usually, the printers have this functionality. Please refer to the user manual.
