Question about Lexmark P315 InkJet Photo Printer
Changed printer cartridge for first time. resulting photos appeared a bit green (compared to photos printed with cartridge provided with printer). Removed cartridge - no red ink coming out. thought faulty cartridge- so tried another - same problem. Now printer won't print any red, which does produse great Andy Wahol style prints but no good to show the family! :-) Think this is a printer problem as won't clear with a new cartridge, but a bit confused as it happened straight after a cartridge change. Read some other faults on forum - they seem to suggest faults after changing cartridges so wondered if anyone has a fix. As this is a stand alone printer (ie don't need a pc) I'm abit lost as can't reload a driver, etc, etc. So I'm thinking perhaps time to get the screwdriver out and try to reset factory settings??? Help anyone!!!?????
You have blocked printhead. You need to remove all cartridges, and thoroughly clean printheads, with solution and cotton buds (q tips) until no residue left. Do printers cleaning systems too, print a test page. Never open the unit unless it is absolute last resort. Try the cleaning. Try completely unplugging unit all cords and cables after switching off and replugging. Try printing now.
