Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Should "cleaning the print nozzles" do anything with the color cartridge?


First, make sure the cartridge isn't dry. You may have to get into the Printer Preferences and check to see if the software hasn't been changed to 'black only'.

I ran out of both black and color ink. I replaced the black ink b/c I do not print in color. But I cannot complete the alignment steps without the color ink.


Lexmark printers usually require both cartridges to have ink left in them to continue printing. But try to press the Cancel button for the Alignment process (this is not recommended). Then try to print a document again to verify that you are able to continue printing without an empty color ink.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your color cartridge with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

NOT PRINTING COLOR (INK LEVEL GOOD) PRINTS ON BLK/WHITE MODE


Your color cartridge may need some cleaning. If you're using Windows, go to Start menu > Prorgrams/All Programs > Lexmark 2600 Series > Solution Center. Go to Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If problem continues, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

The Lexmark Z645 will only print blue, yellow and black


Hello. The nozzles of the color cartridge may need cleaning since it's doing the same thing on two different printers. Here's an article in the Lexmark website on how to properly clean the nozzles of the cartridge. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/9wzuAL . If it still won't work, try your old color cartridge if you still have it and still working. If it works properly with the old cartridge, maybe you got a defective new cartridge. Hope this helps. Good luck!

The cartridsge printe red and blue fine. No yellow


The print head for the yellow color may be clogged. Check the manual to see how to turn on your print head's cleaning system. Run it until the yellow starts to print properly. If after running the cycle 4 or 5 times you still can't get any yellow to print you will probably have to take the printer to your local repair depot to have them diagnose the problem.

Cartridge lexmark 15 is compatible with lexmark x2690?


No, a Lexmark # 15 is not compatible with the 2690.

The 2690 uses a #4 (Black) or #5 (Color). Also a # 4A (Black) and a #5A (Color). You can also use a #31 (Photo Print) cartridge.

Cannot install x2600 series printer w/WMe


Your operating system is not supported by Lexmark (http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/product/home/508/0,6970,204816596_653399443_1189433852_en,00.html?tabId=7)

You could try selected another Lexmark printer from your list of printer in WME. Start with the color ones first and then try the B/W ones. Failing that try installing some color printers from other manufacturers IBM for example.
