Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lemark X4270 have been using it for almost two years but now everytime I print anything with red in it I get thin black lines through the red portion only. I have tried all the cleaning fixes but nothing changes. I have called Lexmark Support and they say I need to buy a new printer. Any thoughts on how to fix the problem?

    Yes, I have tried both brand new cartridges and problem still exists. Are you saying the internal ribbon and cold contact need replacement and therefore I need a new printer?

Have you tried new cartridges? If new cartridge does not fix it is a internal ribbon ar cold contact problem requiring there replacement.

    That would be my guess from the details you have provided. Im sure due to the clarity of your description that you are quite adapt as this. I am figuring that you have already tried removing both cartridges and cleaning the cold contacts on the Shuttle. You might also want to check the Ribbon or flex cable for deterioration, Which would allow the signal to cross and send false reading to the Black.

unplug the power cord from the outlet and wait 3 or 4 minutes.
Plug it back in and choose the alignment program.
a sheet of paper will print out a series of lines and etc.
once finished , the printer cartridge is alligned properly and will print nice and clear.

My printer is only printing half the line.. can you help


do a deep clean cycle from you computer, and see if that solves the problem. type up one or two lines and change the color to blue or red. those are different ink tanks. if it prints in those colors, then your black ink is out or needs a deep cleaning.

Lexmark X4270 works great except thin black lines started to


In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be 
dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the 
catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 
Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same 
way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a 
Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper 
Towel.......... Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer.............. Good Luck

Remove the black ink cartridge and examine the print head on it - you will probably find a small piece of tape (very thin) covering the jets - usually blue in color - remove it and reinstall the cartridge.
