Lexmark z23 cartridge banging

Whenever I try to print with my Lexmark Z23, the cartridge bangs against the left side of the printer and fails to print. I haven't seen any obvious problems inside the machine (everything seems connected properly, in my inexpert opinion). I tried reinstalling the driver, and that also didn't help. My priner keeps on saying that mmy ink cartridges are out of ink but i just bought new ones,

The encoder strip may have become unseated. please follow the steps given below:
The embedded links in the table lead to specific troubleshooting steps.
1 Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cable from the back of the unit.
2 Open the printer's front cover.
Pinch the top of the carrier belt and gently move the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.
3 On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Gently push the encoder strip down and back up to get it into the slot. NOTE: If the strip is completely out of the slot, it may be necessary to move it first forward and then back.
4 Move the cartridge carrier back to the left-hand side of the printer with the carrier belt.
5 Reconnect the power supply and turn the printer back on
If the issue persists after you have attempted the steps with a new color cartridge, continue to Contacting Lexmark.

My lexmark z23 printer keeps leaving blots of ink or marks all over the pages that it prints


You may need to clean the nozzles on your cartridges. Please follow the instructions in this article in the Lexmark website on How to Unblock (Clean) the Cartridge Nozzles in the Lexmark Z13/Z23/Z33 Color Jetprinter.If problem continues, try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty. Thanks.

In this model, if the colour does not work then your colour cartridge is either dried up or empty. Try running a few head cleans through your maintenance section and see if it rectifies the problem. If not a new cartridge will fix the problem.

the ink cartridges may have dried up. try getting one color cartridge to test (color because it can also print black).

Lexmark z23 cartridge banging


Unfortunately, this is a known problem with Lexmark printers. First, try turning the printer upside down and shaking it - it's been known to work. If it didn't help, try cleaning the parts with alcohol solution. Wipe everything inside including the top strip, the metal bar and then pull the ink cartriges out and wipe the copper and the actual cartrige too. And to finish it, hit the side of the printer a couple of times.
