Make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Also, check if the firmware of your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.


Performing a maintenance on the cartridges would also help. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

SOURCE: Lexmark X1185 won't Print Color

On your printer, there is a clean print head adjustment,it is in your menus on the printer itself, It should also be on your print driver in properties. I would try running that up to 5 times before proceding to anything else.
Check and be sure the cartridge expiration date is not exceded. The liquid ink cartridges have an expiration dates. Even though the cartridge is new, Do not rule out a bad or for some reason dryed out cartridge or blocked port at the bottom. If it is indeed brand new and you have the receipt, I honetsly would suspect the cartridge itself.
Ok now, we tried the print head cleaning, and a second cartridge.
Next, I would remove the cartridge, turn the printer off and lightly, very lightly dampn a dusfree cloth with some alcohol, and where the cartridge is located, clean those contacts. reinsert the cartridge and see what happens.
Lastly, you can unplug the printer, remove the cartridges, and place a paper towel under the area where the cardtidge latches in, and dribble in a soapy cleaner, like fantastic, because those inks will dry out in the ports and not allow the ink to flow properly, If you do that, wipe all the excess cleaner up and leave the printer off for an hour or two to allow any remaining liquid to evaporate. Don't use a lot, but trickle it in until you see the ink start to wash out and all the ink is removed.
Take your time, and go from easiest to more difficult. I think that is the process I presented.

SOURCE: I have a lexmark s405

This is unfortunate with Lexmarks I have one its a 3500 series did the same exact thing what i had to do was buy a new print head for it. It cost me $45 bucks when I purchased it.

The nozzle, print head in the carriage was so clogged that it just needed replacement.

I hope this is not your case but it was mine and that is why I am leaving this with you.

also if you used refilled cartridges and then went back to the originals your going to need to purchase what I told you regardless.

We hate referring you back to the manufacture because they just going to rob you into thinking you have to purchase a whole new printer and that is not the case. all you need is the carriage that reads the print cartridge "print head".

Hope this helps please update me with any other information so I can better help you in this manner.

Regards,

    SOURCE: Bought compatible cartridges for lexmark

    For the most optimal output experience with your AIO, Lexmark recommends that customers update their firmware. The firmware helps ensure that customers receive the highest yields of ink available from the cartridges, which offers the greatest value and means fewer necessary cartridge replacements.


    If you choose to upgrade firmware, note that unauthorized use of third-party 'cloned' cartridges will no longer be possible.


    When purchasing ink cartridges, Lexmark customers have two options:


    Regular ink cartridges without license terms (100A/100XLA) that you may a) return to Lexmark free of charge (for recycling by Lexmark), b) refill, recycle or remanufacture themselves, or c) provide to third parties for refilling, recycling, or remanufacturing. Any Regular ink cartridge can be refilled by a customer or a third party and will continue to work in their Lexmark printer.


    Return Program ink cartridges that provide customers with an up-front discount in exchange for their agreement to use the ink cartridge once and return it only to Lexmark for remanufacturing and recycling.

      S405


      If you're using a genuine Lexmark cartridge, try to reseat the cartridge and unplug the power of the printer for about 30 seconds.

      If you're using a remanufactured/refilled cartridge, it will not detect the ink levels and might damage the printhead.

      The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels for you to be able to print. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have ink - this will prevent damaging the printhead.

      The Lexmark S405 printer requires all cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing.

      The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.

      I just bought 2 new catridges (black & color) but the color ink dosen't print.


      I'm not familiar with Lexmark but I think your printer is set only to print on black cartridge (black only option) There's something wrong with the settings. Check the settings, look for the color options.
