Question about Lexmark X7170 All-In-One Scan/Copy/Fax and Photo Printer
Frustrated. I keep troubleshooting, w no result. tests come up great, when trying to print , I get message that ink is low. I detached all cords and re attached, same message. If you could help, it would be greatly appreciated. ty
The Lexmark x7170 should let you continue printing with the ink cartridge regardless of the estimated ink with most cartridges. The only exception to this is if the cartridges are part of Lexmark's returns programme. I would advise removing the cartridge and checking for small text stating "Return Programme Cartridge" on the label. If this is present sadly there is no way of continuing, apart from buying a new cartridge.
With regards to the low ink estimate, am I right in assuming you are using a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge? If so this is unavoidable but should not prevent you from printing until the ink physically runs out.

Take out the Cartridge & get a new one if the problem persists then get the printer software reinstalled & if still it is not printing then clean up the cartridge head with cotton swabs dipped in hot water!
This should clean the head & black will be on paper
DO THIS AS FINAL REFUGE
If still its not working then there's some problem in the copper contact surface in the printer on the cradle so get a new Printer.

turn the printer i turned on and Press the cleaning button ,. Cleaning takes about two minutes, the printer makes some noise when it finishes you run a nozzle check for print quality and reset the cleaning cycle.
load paper . go to the printer menu as follows: click Control Panel, and then double-click Printers. Select the Epson printer if have more than one printer is installed. Click File, click Properties, click the Utility tab, then click the Nozzle Check icon.
The printer will print a Nozzle Check pattern in black, and in cyan, magenta, and yellow. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If any dots are missing, clean the head again.
If your software is different, and does not have these options, you can do it this way:
1. Same as above.
2. Same as above.
Turn off printer and computer. Disconnect interface cable from printer. Load paper. Hold down the load/eject button and press the power button to turn on the printer. Release both buttons.
3 Same as above.
4 Turn off printer and reconnect the interface

Try these steps after these if you face the same problem then you need to get the cart exchanged as it may be defective as Lexmark cart comes with 6 months warranty ...
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

SOURCE: I have a Lexmark x7170.
Some older print cartridges are not compatible even if your model is listed on label. I'm talking a few years difference. The printer knows this and that is what the error is telling you. Make sure you have the right number in the right slot.
