Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls goto Control Panel, Printers, right click on Lexmark 2400, click on Cancel Print. Do this several times until it no longer shows. Thereafter proceed with the alignment.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Turn the machine off. Un plug everything, inlcuding the USB cable and open all the access doors you have. Remove power from the supply.

Leave power off for several minutes. Close the covers, reattch power but leave the USB off. Press and Hold Cancel or Reset and then Power On. Keep Cancel or Reset pressed down. See if the printer will go into a diagnostic or maintenance mode.

let us know your results

I changed my printer ink cartridges and now it no longer wants to print. It does not give an error message or anything of the sort...please help me out.


  1. Make sure the printer is switched on, the old cartridges are still in the printer, and the cartridge cover is closed.
  2. Click on Start, Programs (XP: All Programs), Lexmark <Printer Name>, Lexmark <Printer Name> Solution Center.
  3. When the Solution Center screen appears, click on the Maintenance button on the left-hand side. (This button is the third from the top and bears a picture of ink drops.)
  4. When you see the Install or obtain a New Cartridge option, click on it once. A pop-up displays a brief description of how to physically remove an old cartridge and install a new one.
  5. Follow these instructions and click Next. The software will prompt you to confirm whether the cartridges are new or old.
  6. For the new cartridge you just inserted, select No, it's new. Important: Make sure the setting for any old cartridge stays on Yes, It is old.
  7. Once your selections have been made, click OK. The program will want to run the alignment for any new cartridges you installed. This applies whether you changed one or both cartridges (in the case of printers that can hold two cartridges). An alignment screen with a red and white bull's eye will appear.
  8. Make sure the cartridge cover is closed and that there is paper in the printer.
  9. Then click the Print button on the alignment screen. A sheet of paper will print from your printer with a series of arrows and numbers on it, with one set of solid bars above them. You should see four groups of lines, unless you have a single cartridge. If you have a single cartridge, you will only have one set of lines.
  10. In each group, locate the arrow that looks the most solid. It may help to circle the number under each arrow you choose as you go along.
  11. On your screen, you will see an area where you can enter the alignment values. When you have identified all the numbers, select those same numbers for each group on your screen, using the up and down arrows next to each value for A, B, C, and D (or A if you have only one cartridge).
  12. When all the numbers have been changed to reflect the chosen numbers on the printed alignment page, click OK. The cartridge installation procedure is complete.
  13. You can now exit from the Solution Center.

Lexmark x2600 alignment page skip


I have this same problem and no solution! (I'm on a Lexmark 2400 and Windows XP.) The problem is how much ink it wastes on one alignment and NO BYPASS option - an ink cartridge is $25, we can't waste it on a USELESS test!!! They're trying to make money but let's not fall for it. We need a way to bypass the ****. Somebody heeelp.

I installed a new Lexmark cartridge for printer 2400, it printed out test page and the cartridge is stuck on the left hand side of printer and will not work. The bulls eye diagram comes up says print...


Try doing "start", "control panel" then "click on printers & fax's", & when you get it open to the "icon" that shows your printer", right click on the printer in use icon, & you get the drop down menu", try clicking on "properties", you should get a "pop up box" with a line saying, "printer is busy", & maybe even written several times, click on & delete all of the lines, if that don't do it right away, turn off & unplug ur power cord until you hear a "noise from ur printer", this is "resetting & releasing it", (probabIy less then a minute, maybe even reboot the PC) printer will not print until you get rid of these "commands", I couldn't be more "precise", on getting the "box", to appear, as it will only "come down & appear", if ur having this problem, hope this helps....Don
