Printer will not print anything I have an old Lexmark Jetprinter 1000. I have cleaned the nozzles and tried to print test page, but nothing prints. I have the black cartridge in machine. It did sit a while without being used. Is there any further cleaning I can do?

What do you mean? it prints blank pages?? I think you answered your own question.
You know a low end laser printer is less than $100 now? (buy an HP) and you will get about 20 times the yield from the toner cartridge vs. your inkjet for about the same money...cut your losses.

Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. On your computer, go to Start menu > All Programs / Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > select Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a clean test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your document again and to check if print quality is achieved.

I ddon't know how to get the printer to recognize the color ink that I have installed. The printer will not print.


Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge for your model. Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles using the computer. Load plain paper. Open the Lexmark Solution Center (go to Start, Programs, Lexmark 1100 Series, Lexmark Solution Center). From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Click Print. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through to clean the clogged nozzles. Try to print your file again and check it's properly printing now.

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.

My Lexmark Z25 has been packed away for a few years. I have new cartridges but, the pages still print blank. It makes all the noises like it is printing but, nothing. Can't find original software for...


The blank pages is normally due to dried ink in the print head nozzles. Even by replacing the cartridges, the blockage remain.
You can clean the print head with some wet lint less (camera lens) paper soaked in iso-propyl alcohol.
If the blockage is wet, running a cleaning cycle a few times will normally remove the blockage after doing the above steps.

I bought two new cartridges for my printer but the printer prints funny. there is no color and the black appears faded. my printer is about 2 years old. have any ideals?


Sounds like the jets may be clogged. You may have to run multiple times till they are good. Print a test after each clean and see if that helps.  You can use the operator panel or the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center to clean the nozzles. Using the operator panel 1 Load paper in the All-In-One. For help, see page 16. 2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display. 3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display. 4 Press Select. A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved. 6 To further improve print quality, try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts (see page 44), and then print your document again. 7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times. you can get the owners manual on line at this address:  http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x5150/eng/ug.pdf

please rate this and good luck.

3200 not printing


absolutely. that's a good idea, but unusual for what you're experiencing. The test page is generated locally, through memory on printer. The applications depend on the driver set, interpreting the print information.
