agitation. The first soak quickly turn the water black, the second
end with the water a dark grey color. The hot distilled water dissolved the dried ink in the small ink
passages from the cartridges to the ink ejection part of the print
head. Carefully dry the print head as per instructions, clean the
electrical contacts on the printer, and placed the print head and the
ink cartridges in the printer.Turn off the printer, then unplugged it for one minute.Then turn it on...and print an alignment sheet...

Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark
printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or
turns red instead of the standard green.
Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name
or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You
can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.
Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides
of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink
cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the
cartridges for refill.
Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective
tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink
cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.
Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several
pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink
cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green
