These models use a "3 colour" printing process. In other words, these printers do not contain black ink when the BC-05 colour cartridge is installed. To produce black print, a 3 colour printer mixes an equal amount of the three primary colours. This process is known as "composite" black.

As the ink in the cartridge runs out, one of the three primary colours will run out first, depending on the material that has been printed. After one of the three colours has depleted, this colour will be missing from the mixture required to print black, and the print will change colour. This is the indication that the cartridge needs to be replaced. Usually the remaining colours in the cartridge will run out soon afterwards.

    Yes you are correct. But you can swap the black cartridge for a photo cartridge for six-color printing. Please check you have a black cartridge and it has sufficient ink to print the documents. If it exhausted, The the printer starts using the tricolour cartridge.

Try this approach instead:
  1. From the printer operator panel, press Setup button > and then press Ok.
  2. Press the up or down arrow button until Clean Cartridges is highlighted, and then press OK.
  3. Press OK again. A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.
  4. Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a lexmark 464de mfp. How do i setup scan to e-mail on windows 7 on this network printer?


Multi-function printers cannot scan and then e-mail the scanned image. They can scan and then fax a document.
You need to scan the document, then save the scanned image, open your e-mail program and create the e-mail then attach the image file (file attachment) to the e-mail before you send the e-mail.

I was wondering how to scan more than one page at a time with the x7170. also is there any way to save the scanned document as a microsoft document?


The Lexmark X7170 printer can only scan one page at a time. However, it has the capability of scanning multiple pages using either the scanner glass or through the automatic document feeder. Refer to the Lexmark X7100 Series User's Guide for more information.
For your second question, Yes, you have an option to save your scanned file to a Microsoft document as long as the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer. The scan software is only available on the installation disc (not available as part of the downloadable driver on the Lexmark website).

Pls, how could i scan (Lexmark X7170), an article of 20 pages in one pdf file? thanks!


Go to Adobe Acrobat. Click on FILE. Click on CREATE PDF. Click on FROM SCANNER. Click on SCAN. You should now be scanning your first page, after completing it you will be asked if you want to scan any more pages or close. Select to scan more pages till finished. You can also select to have Acrobat do an OCR after the scan which will allow you to search the document. To do this, click on DOCUMENT, click on RECOGNISE TEXT USING OCR and click on START.
