Lexmark X5690 Use no. 4/5, after refilling, printer will not accept cartridges and won't print.


Try to reseat the cartridges into the printer.
Note that Lexmark does not recommend the use of 3rd party/refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These type of cartridges tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance.

Installed new 28 and 29 cartridges in lexmark x2550 and it won't recognise the cartridge and won't print at all, very frustrating please help urgently


It could be that your cartridges need some cleaning. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Solution Center. Click Start menu > Programs or All Programs >Lexmark 2500 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print again.

How do i change my lexmark x4650 print cartrige?


Installing/Replacing your ink cartridges:
1. Open the printer, and then press down on the cartridge carrier levers. printmastert_52.jpg

2. Remove the used print cartridge or cartridges. 3. If you are installing new print cartridges, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the color cartridge, insert the cartridge in the right carrier, and then close the color cartridge carrier lid. 4. If a black cartridge is included in the box contents, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the black cartridge, insert the cartridge in the left carrier, and then close the black cartridge carrier lid. 5. Close the printer.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

Do I need a color cartridge to print in black ink


the paper was black or blank? i think you mean blank, the ink will dry out over time replacing the cartridges will most likely solve the problem, or for the cost of the two cartridges u may want to consider a new cheap printer.

I keep getting a message saying Install a color print cartridge on right side. There is one installed and I have tried changing it but it still won't recognise that one is there.


When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I just reconnected my computer after 6 mo... the printer appears to be working fine, paper going thru etc, but there is no print on the paper! all the ink is full, I have no idea why it isn't printing on...


I think your problem is that the ink cartridges have dried up. It took 1 month of non use for my brand new cartridges to dry up once with my Lexmark. If you don't use them semi-regularly, they will dry up and need to be replaced. Please correct me, though, if the cartridges are new and I can help you further.

Blank paper


That is the most likely cause.
Also under the cartridges, there are some ports and pads that may have dried out. In that case unplug the machine, and remove the cartridges, trickle some alcohol slowly to dissolve the sticky ink in that area. Place some paper towels under the print head area as you trickle in the alcoholl and allow it to drip into those towels. Then allow some time to dry.
The cartridges and those port areas can dry out or become very tacky.

My printing displays wrong ink levels and prints blank pages


If your cartridge is new (or full) and you know that not just from ink levels display, then you did not used the printer for a while (at least a month) and the nozzles of the cartridge are clogged. If u used the cartridghe 4 or 5 moths ago, then the whole cartridge is dryed out, so get out and get yourself a new cartridge.

If it's just a month, then you should put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the cartridge with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridge in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles. Then clean gentle the nozzle part of the cartridge on some sheets of tissue.
Install the cartridges it in the printer and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

If the cartridge is new and just installed in the printer, and you have the inklevels but it does not print, then get it out of the printer and back to the store, they should replace it for you. I hope you removed the protective plastic stripe that covers the nozzles before installing the cartridge?...

OK, let ne know please how things evolve.

Hope it helped you, rate the solution.

Almoust forgot: ink levels are displayed by Lexmark inkprinters by estimating the ink consumed trough you printing process, it has no sensors in the cartridge. It's just kind of a counter, you can evan set an empty cartridge to be seen as a full one.

Lexmark Z517 wont print black ink


I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.
