You may check your only black ink cartridge

longer time less using cause ink chanel(holes) dryer, could not print out even refilled.you may take out the ink cartridge and put it's surface of bottom (just touch ) in the clean water 1 -2 Hrs, then set back and test it. still not fixed, you also need to do same thing if your print head is separated from your ink cartridge

Im trying to print a black and white document but it wont let me print because my color cartridge is missing


The Lexmark X2600 requires both cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing, even if your printing in "black and white". To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink. , Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality issues.

I want to print using my lexmark X6170 but I don't want to print color so I didn't put a color cartridge in. It keeps coming up with an error message and won't print at all.


Some printers require you to have the color cartridges in them even when you are printing black and white. You usually can in your print options choose black and white over color.

Lexmark x2600 printer; color looks great for 1st 2 inches of printing then changes; green went blue, yellow went white, red to purple.


Your cartridges may need to be cleaned. Open the Lexmark Solution Center and select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. This will force ink out through the cartridge nozzles, cleaning it from dirts and clogs. This will improve print quality on your printer. Also, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges to achieve high quality results.

Can't print black and white only with Lexmark 2600!


Hi MikeC,

Most of the time this is due to the black cartridge being out of ink. The Lexmark uses all the colors to create black when the black ink cartridge runs out, but won't let you print black because it is essentially saving ink.

Hope that's the reason and it isn't the printer failing. Good luck! :)

Can't use black cartridge only to print


Unfortunately it is all true.
Personally I would stay away from Lexmark, I am a Canon fan, the MP520 looks real nice, but it's personal choice at the end of the day.
