Black ink doesn't print

I have a Lexmark Z611 printer, which always worked perfectly, but two months ago it suddenly stopped printing in black ink!
I tried everything - refilled the cartridge, even bought the new one, cleaned them both... nothing helps!!!

What should I do??? I am tired of going to the library everytime I need to print something!

thanks,
Olga

I've had it with printers!
I'm on my second one and it's costing me a fortune!
It's cheaper to go to the library and make copies or take a disk to a photo printing booth.
My first printer was a Lexmark x73 it doesn't print anymore and I'm the un-proud owner of two almost new ink cartridges but I kept it because it sill scans and quite well I might add!
My second printer is a HP and very very inexpensive! I ran out of black ink after printing about 10 pages in a lot of black and haven't even thought about trying new ink cartrides yet!
I now go to the library!
The problem with some of these printers is that if you don't use them often enough the jets will clog and it will never print again unless you rebuild it while. Others just use a lot of ink and cost a lot!

You could try paying for a FixYas' Guaranteed Solution as it's guaranteed and someone might have a way to get it going for you again!

Hope this was helpful.
Good Luck!

My lexmark z611 only prints blank pages with nothing on them, i bought a brand new ink cartridge that is black ink for it and it says it is low on ink for some odd reason but when i print things in color...


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

This article on How to Troubleshoot the Vizix Ink Technology will help fix print quality problems on your printer. To run the Deep Clean Printhead function on your printer -> on the printer operator panel, press Setup -> Maintenance -> select Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print the test page. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Printer only won't print in black


My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.

Will not print any black Z611 Lexmark Printer


It's possible the black nozzles may have become clogged or the black cartridge may not be properly seated. Recommend you contact technical support via www.lexmark.com.
