This is usually a sign that the print head is out of alignment. There’s not much you can do to avoid this problem—all print heads become misaligned over time. Your printer utility should include an option for correcting the problem. This is an on going problem for lexmark printers my advice get a different brand treat yourself for christmas good luck and happy holiday.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls cleaning the guide rod and the encoder strip. The guide rod is the stainless steel round bar that serves as the guide rail of the print head. The encoder strip on the other hand is the clean narrow but long plastic strip with markings similar to barcodes. The marks and the spaces tell the printhead its location.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Do you know how to purge the inkjet cartridges?

If you go to the maintnance section of the properties of your printer, there should be a mode to do that.

Printer says cant print until cyan ink is replaced. Have replaced it with 2 different cartridges, but still wont print


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

My Lexmark 5600 series will not align properly. Ink levels are both within operating levels, above 75% Will not print documents. The LCD screen flickers up and down, pixels are all scrambled. I have...


Pull out the cartridges and clean any residual glue on the bottom of them by scratching them with your fingernail. Wipe the contacts in the printer and the cartridge with a LINT FREE cloth. Gently replace the cartridges. If they don't go in easily then you're doing it wrong. Clean and realign the cartridges. If these steps don't work then the only thing you can do is hit the cancel (red x) button on the printer to bypass the message for every print job you do.

Nothing there


Did you try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles.

Press Function once and up arrow 2 times
Press the right arrow once and the up arrow once
Press the right arrow once
Press Start/Memory button
It will print a test parttern page

Once you insert the new cartridge did the machine recognize the new cartridge? You had to press 1 for new

When 1 is selected you will get a prompt New Cart: OK?
OK press start.

If you selected NEW the display will show the alternating messages at right. Align Cartridge----1 Print 2 Set

Press 1 to print an alignment page

Hopefully, it will printed. Let me know one way or the other.
