Question about Lexmark X1240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The printer is connected correctly, the printer goes through the motion of printing, but the pages come out blank. What is the problem? I use new ink cartgages and old ones, they both produce the same outcome. What do I do?

Try to take a xerox or photo copy form the printer and if it come ok than it is simple driver problem so uninstall drivers from the add & remove program and than try to install it again.

Just getting blank pages


It would help to know what kind and model printer.

Some printers can get clogs and not print. Those mostly have "head cleaning" in the maintenance tab in the print setup screens.

Many printers have ink gauges, but they really don't measure how much ink is in the carts, it's easier for them to count how much ink has likely been used. Sometimes you actually run out of ink before the printer think you're empty, though mostly it's the other way around.

I just inserted new ink jets into my Canon MP 490. When I request a print test page, it goes through the motions but the page is blank.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

My HP 3550 deskjet will simply not print. It goes through the motions and seems to be printing --but the page is blank or very faint. I have already cleaned and re-calibrated the printer


Check ink-levels -- no ink means no printing.
Run a few more "print-head-cleaning" cycles -- clogged ink-jets cannot spray ink onto the paper.

Your printer cartiage will be out of ink.

Printer performs as if printing yet gives only blank pages


Check whether you removed the yellow strip of the cartridges. remove the upper unit and check when head cleaning the ink goes throw the ink tube. if not you can sure that the head cleaning unit is to be repaired.

Lexmark z640 has stopped printing - goes through the motions but no ink on page


Some third party cartridges will not work with your printer as they are remanufactured from used cartridges.
It is more expensive to buy genuine Lexmark ink, but atleast you know it will work.
You may try reinstalling the driver before buying new ink.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.
