Question about Lexmark Z600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer now only prints blank pages.

My colour 27 cartridge has been low on ink for a while, but I do not use it much so I dont bother with it.

Then my black 16 was getting low so I refilled it using a refill pack. I have done this before a few times already and had no problems. But this time, when I replaced the black cartridge in the exact same slot, the ink level of the colour cartridge read full and the black was still low!! The cartridges are in the right place. When printing, all I get are blank pages. Even the test pages are blank. I have switched on/off several times to see if it will reset the ink readings, but no.

    I have a Lexmark Z645. I replaced my colour no.26 cartridge with a new one and refilled the black no 17 with ink. The black prints, but no colour.

    Thanks for your replies. I did clean the contacts and even uninstalled and reinstalled the driver but no success. I guessed that the life to the cartridges came to an end. I ended up buying a new Kodak printer with has cheaper cartridges than to buy a new set of Lexmark cartridges.

Try wiping the contacts (gold colored spots) with a tissue, and after wipe the ink despensing end.

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

New cartridge and still shows ink low


Since the printer cannot detect the amount of ink in the cartridge, the OEM companies place a chip inside of each cartridge that counts the number of pages that you print. When the cartridges reach a certain number of pages, they automatically tell your printer that you are running low on ink, even if it is not empty yet.

If the cleaning steps on your printer is still not fixing the color, try the very first tip on this page:

I have found that using warm water on the paper towel clears the prints up better.

I keep getting cartridge error or it prints a blank page. There is no tape on the cartridge and they are installed properly. It prints sometimes but not all the time Printer keeps saying cartridge error


This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.
