Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer ink works once, then stops.

I've had my printer for about 2-3 years, used rarely, and about a year ago I replaced the ink cartridge and could only print once before the printer refused to print again. I've replaced the ink 3 times and each time the printer only works once before failing again. I currently have a new ink cartridge in the printer right now.I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer to no avail. Please help!

SOURCE: New cartridges do not work in Lexmark 3550 Printer

Are you sure that they are installed correctly, seated, etc.? Do you have the right cartridges? Have you aligned them?

Windows 98, is your operating system, thank you for clearing that up. Windows 98 is very unstable and the most hacked operating system in the hacker community. I recommend trying Ubuntu. Download for free and burn it to a CD-R and reboot to try it. You can always install it later if you enjoy it. It's simple to learn because of the new GUI. Most drivers are automatically configured and I think your printer is supported for Linux (ubuntu).

      If you refilled the cartridge, it won't be able to detect the ink levels. If you're having problems finding genuine Lexmark cartridges, you can always purchase it online at www.lexmark.com.

      Canon mx860 printer not using ink from PGBK 220


      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.

      Hi,

      If you are getting Incompatible ink cartridge error and These cartridges were replaced a year ago, I think its time you call them once again. ( 1-800-474-6836 ) and report the issue. They will ask you for the Cartridge details like part # and expiry date on the cartridge.

      Regards,

      Stylus CX3900 won't turn on


      Do you used ORIGINAL epson cartridges? I used false ones, the yellow one exploded (I'm NOT kidding) inside the printer, and it died. Too, may cause errors on the printer's motherboard, on each cartridge, have a chip who don't metter the ink inside, calculate an extimated value. When you put a false cartridge, the chip may send wrong/corrupted data to the printer system, making it dizzy, and stop working... Epson products have short lifetime, i rarely saw an epson printer go more than 6 years, the most ones die on the first year. Is what i know, good luck.

      Canon is still making ink cartridges for printers that came out 15 years ago. I doubt that they will stop making cartridges for the MP160 (which uses the same cartridges as about 15 other models) any time soon.

      Black ink print failure after cartridge replaced


      The Edge, -Clean the electrical contacts on the printer where the cartridge connects with alcohol. After it dries clean the same contacts with a regular pink, non-abrasive pencil eraser making sure you remove all the debris when done. -Its also possible there is an air bubble preventing the flow of ink. You can try inserting a full cartridge of ink in the printer and letting it sit overnight then running a nozzle clean job or two. Another alternative if you have a syringe you may want to try gently forcing ink into it. If you?re really desperate you can try drilling a small hole into the cartridge to give gravity feeding a hand. BE WARNED the air hole will let ink flow pretty well and you run the chance of making a mess. Before you pull the cartridge out of the printer make sure you cover the hole with tape so the ink doesn?t make even more mess. -Check the cartridge alignment making sure the contacts are mating to the printer. -If it still doesn?t work I would try cleaning your nozzles. Even though I doubt you have clogged nozzles its worth a try because of the following: If you search the Internet you?ll find that this specific model is know for failing to print some or all colors after about 1 ½ to 2 years of use, even with Epson inks. Most of the posts I?ve seen blame it on clogged nozzles but I suspect a good number of them, like yours, have another explanation for their failure. Ink jet printers use resistors to create heat to create a bubble in the ink to eject it out of the nozzle (Bubble jet) or in the case of Epson, vibrating crystals push ink into and out of the nozzles (piezoelectric). We?ve already cleaned the electrical contacts and cleaned the nozzles so what remain are defective nozzles, short between the nozzle and the controller board or a defective controller board. Since the printer is only worth 1 or 2 hundred dollars repairs at a shop or buying these repair parts can easily exceed ½ its cost. Hope something here works for you, I just recently had to toss a great printer too. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
