Hello,

First of all, I would suggest you to disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer and reconnect it after 60 secs. Once you are done with this, try turning on the printer. If the carts doesn't come to the middle, then there should be something wrong with the printer hardware. Do you see any lights flashing on the printer? If you are hearing a slamming noise when powering on the printer, that is an indication that the encoder strip (the strip which holds the cartridge in position) is off! This needs to be fixed by a hardware specialist. Incase if the printer is under warranty, you could ask for a repalcement.

Merry Christmas!

I ddon't know how to get the printer to recognize the color ink that I have installed. The printer will not print.


Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge for your model. Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles using the computer. Load plain paper. Open the Lexmark Solution Center (go to Start, Programs, Lexmark 1100 Series, Lexmark Solution Center). From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Click Print. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through to clean the clogged nozzles. Try to print your file again and check it's properly printing now.

Start buton is blinking


Hi,
Open the printer cover and check if the carrier is moving to the center. (Mine didn't)

The power light is blinking because the printer carrier is not moving.

Open the printer cover again, if it won't move to the center, pull the white cable that you will see there. Please be very careful in doing so.

After moving the carrier to the center, take the cartridges out.

Close the cover again and open it. Check if it will move.

If in case the carrier did not move to the center, unplug the black box behind the printer.

Turn the printerupside down (I kid you not).

Shake the printer for 10-20 seconds. (still not kidding)

Check if you will see any foreign objects falling from the paper feed path. (nothing fell out of mine)

After that step, plug up the printer again and check if the carrier will move to the center. (Mine did)

Put the cartridges back in and print.

Hi need to know how to open my printer and get to where i need to put the new cartridges in it i have a lexmark x1185 please help me


Hello,

The entire top of your printer lifts up. (Scanner unit.)

Refer to this setup guide:

Lexmark X1100 Series Setup Guide

See steps 6 through 9.

Once the lid is lifted, there are locking tabs on each cartridge. Squeeze and lift up. You can then lift up and out on the cartridges. Reverse the procedure to install the new cartridges.

NOTE: Make sure the printer is ON during cartridge removal and replacement.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My ink cartridges won't move to the center when I open the printe


Be sure the printer is powered on as it needs power to move the cartridges - this is a common mistake.

I cant figure out how to change the ink cartridges on my lexmark


On an X4850 the whole top of the printer opens up to reveal the cartridge carriers. Press down on the latch of each side to reveal the cartridges.

Here is a link to the User guide: X4850 User Guide It is described on page 94.

Lexmark X1185


If the ink cartridge is not empty it is probably clogged. The Print nozzles are very sensitive and cleaning attempts can make the situation even worse if carried out wrong. You can try cleaning with dry gas alcohol as it contains no water. Use a piece of leather sham or other non lint material like eyeglass lens cleaner wipes and the dry gas. Wet your cloth and gently hold it on the print nozzles allowing the alcohol to dissolve the dried ink in the nozzles. Do not rub hard or you will ruin the print head. Hold it in place for at least 2 minutes with a generous amount of alcohol in the cloth. Imm
ediately place the cartridge in the printer and perfom the clean nozzle function.
If this does not remedy your problem the print cartridge must be replaced. Hope this helps you out.

looks like you may need to replace the black cartridge.
usually when you open the cover of your printer, cartridge carrier will move to the center. that's where the cartridges are, you can open it buy pushing it down and release it.

x1185 and x1100 are most likely the same.

Clean the contacts on the cartidge and printer ( open the replace ink door wait for the printhead to come to center and turn off power) if that does not work then replace cartridge, it might be a recycled one that they did not chane the chip.
