No, they need to be replaced.

Did you remove the plastic tape from the carts?

Lexmark wireless printer 1400 series prints blank pages


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark Z1400 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.


After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have installed a new ink cartridge and gone through the cleaning process serval times but I can not get anything to print in black. If a document is in all black, all I get is a blank sheet. If I change...


The first thing to check would be your print utility. Make sure that it is aware that there is a black cartridge installed. If you've gone through the cleaning process, try printing a test page and see if that will print the black. If not, it is either a setting in your utility telling it not to print in black and white, or a hardware issue with your printer. I will look up some documentation for your make and model printer to see what else the problem might be. Please advise with any changes when you check the print utility.

My lexmark 640 printer is not printing ie blank page after printing, yet the ink levels are high as i've hardly used it. what can i do, please? sandy


Print quality issues can be due to clogged print cartridge nozzles. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Try to remove the cartridges from your printer
  2. Close the printer cover.
  3. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  4. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges.
  5. Your printer will then try to print an alignment page. It will help clean the cartridge nozzles.
  6. After the alignment page comes out, try to print a document again to verify if problem is resolved.
If the problem continues, try to launch the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Go to Maintenance and select Clean Cartridge.
You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if it's a cartridge problem.

I have try to print but its not printing. i've allready fill the ink still the page come out blank.


It could be due to the refilled cartridge that you are using. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance.
You can try to clean the cartridge nozzles. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. On the printer control panel, press Copy.
  2. Press Options until Maintenance is highlighted.
  3. Press the right arrow until Align Cartridges or Clean Cartridges appears, and then press Select. A test page will then be printed forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print your document again to verify that the cartridges are working.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your cartridges with new genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Fulll ink cartridges but paper blank after printing


I've tried many kinds of cleaning and nothing helps save the old printhead. The only repair is to replace the printhead which costs around $100.00 for the part alone. It's not easy and should be done by a shop but a new machine would be less than the repair and you start again with a one year warranty.

Black Won't Print On MFC 420 CN


Use another new genuine (original brother) BK cart. Do the cleaning twice only for BK. Wait some time (4 hours). If the ink has dryed up, the cleaning ink will break up the dryed one. Do the cleaning again. If it doesnt work, please write again.
