    Have replaced the black pot and this printer will not recognize that I replaced the black pot. I have tried every trick in the book and it is time to junk this lexmark and buy an Epson.

I want to print using my lexmark X6170 but I don't want to print color so I didn't put a color cartridge in. It keeps coming up with an error message and won't print at all.


Some printers require you to have the color cartridges in them even when you are printing black and white. You usually can in your print options choose black and white over color.

Lexmark 3600-4600 stops at 34% when trying to print a test page. Color ink is low, but I only want black in any event.


If your color ink is already empty or not substantial for printing, then you must replace it with a new cartridge. The Lexmark printer will continue to print when there's substantial ink in the cartridges.
If you prefer to print in black and white as your default print setting, please follow the steps below: (make sure your black and color cartridges ink levels are good)

For Windows OS:

1. Go to Control Panel.

2. Open Printers and Faxes.

3. Right-click on Lexmark 3600-4600 Series print object and click on Properties.

4. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window, go to Advanced tab. Click on Printing Defaults.

5. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Printing Preferences window, under Ink Use, select Print using black ink only. Click OK.

6. Click OK button in the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window to save the changes.


Your printer will print in black and white draft mode the next time you send a print job to the printer.


For Mac OS:


1. With the file (you wish to print) open, go to Print. A window will pop up.

2. Select the Lexmark printer.

3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media.

4. Under Paper tab, select Print in Black and White.

5. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).



Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.

Replaced the colour cartridge with a photo one (both Lexmark) and the photo cartridge is not recognised and I'm only getting black and white printing


The photo cartridge goes in the black cartridge carrier. Keep the color cartridge in the color cartridge carrier to continue printing.

Lexmark printer cannot print with black ink only, why?


Hello, Char.

Most inkjet printers are designed to require both black and color cartridges, even though you may be printing in black, only.

Please let me know if I have not understood your question.

Hope this helps.

Lexmark z1300 printer - one cartridge


if you look at the options in the printer there should be an option to use the color cartridge to print black. How does this work? Well what the printer will do is mix all three colors to make a light black. This will eat up your color cartridge faster but is useful when you are out of black ink and you need to print
