Question about Lexmark Color JetPrinter 7000 InkJet

1 Answer

Help!!! I need to print off my CV to take to an employer RIGHT NOW and the quality of my print is rubbish!! I changed the cartridge, and that hasn't improved anything. I can't find out how to clean the ink thing! Ink-Head? Ink-nozzles? I don't know what they're called, so that doesn't help much!! My printer is a Lexmark 700. Thank you. Amanda

Why have my ink pads come to an end already and how do you change them i have an epson px700w?



Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using.


You do not say if you are using original Epson branded or compatible generic brand cartridges.

You do not say if the printer is new and if this is your first cardtridge change, or not.

Sometimes the cartidges that come with the printer are low volume, starter cartridges. The 2 types of cartridges have slightly different codes to distinguish them.

Some people prefer generic brand, compatible cartridges, which are generally cheaper but can be of inferior quality and some can contain inferior quality ink. Others prefer original Epson branded cartridges, which can be more expensive.

Some Epson printers can take both economy volume and high volume cartridges.

In Windows operating systems, generally:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson PX700W icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

or

Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions> head cleaning >print test page.

Cleaning inkjet nozzles


Here's what I found here:

http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x5150/eng/ug.pdf

Cleaning the print cartridge nozzles
To improve print quality, you may need to clean the print cartridge nozzles.
Clean the nozzles when:
• Characters are not printing completely.
• White dashes appear in graphics or printed text.
• Print is smudged or too dark.
• Colors on print jobs are faded or they differ from the colors on the
screen.
• Vertical, straight lines are not smooth.
43
You can use the operator panel or the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution
Center to clean the nozzles.
Using the operator panel
1 Load paper in the All-In-One. For help, see page 16.
2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display.
3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display.
4 Press Select.
A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the
clogged nozzles.
5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
6 To further improve print quality, try wiping the print cartridge nozzles
and contacts (see page 44), and then print your document again.
7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
Using the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center
1 Load plain paper in the All-In-One. For help, see page 16.
2 Click Start Programs Lexmark X5100 Series Lexmark X5100
Series Solution Center.
3 Click the Maintenance tab.
4 From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
5 Click Print.
A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the
clogged nozzles.
6 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
44
7 To further improve print quality, try wiping the print cartridge nozzles
and contacts (see page 44), and then print your document again.
8 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
Wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts
If the print quality does not improve after cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles, dried ink may be on the nozzles or contacts. To wipe the print
cartridge nozzles and contacts:
1 Remove the print cartridges. For help, see page 38.
2 Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
3 Hold the cloth against the gold nozzle area for about three seconds.
Gently blot and wipe dry in one direction (this prevents the colors in
the color cartridge from mixing).
4 Hold a clean, damp section of cloth against the contacts for about
three seconds. Gently blot and wipe dry in one direction.

Contacts

5 Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
6 Reinstall the print cartridges, and then print your document again.
7 If the print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
8 If print quality is still unsatisfactory, replace your print cartridges. For
help, see page 38.

My printer is has new cartridges in it and it's printing spotty all over the page, and I've tried changing cartridges and it still does it no matter what.


Ive got a OfficeJet Pro 8500 with changeable print heads. im not sure if yours is the same but i would think so. sounds like you need to change them aswell. also use only genuine ink cartridges unless you managed to find good quality aftermarket ones. i tried cheap ones and they rubbish. hope this helps.

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.

Fading cartridge problems


That printer is pretty old. Are you selecting "Best" quality when you print or is it possible that some documents are being printed in Quick Print mode (which puts less ink on the page)? If you're doing the same thing on each print job but the print quality changes, there's definitely a problem. If you're printing from web pages, the print quality may be a factor of the design of the pages. If you print two pages of a multi-page document and quality declines, you should be able to get help through Lexmark's technical support.

A service partner has to adjust the printhead by special software. This cant be done by user. After adjustment the printing quality will be as good as brand new.
