    When you say you have turned it off, do you mean you have disconnected it from the electrical socket or just used the on/of button on the printer?

I replaced the black ink and the error light is on and the out of black ink light is still on. Won't print


Try it.......

Remove the print head and soak it for three 5-minute cycles in hot (~170 F) distilled water about 3/4 inch deep with continuous mild 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...

Red light under ink cartridge


The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.
  3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.
  8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
  10. Load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Hi I have just put in ink cartridges and the reg light check print cartridges keeps flashing is there anyone there to help me


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir/Ma'am If the Check Print Cartridge message is shown and Red Light Flashing then it means that Either ink Cartridge is not installed properly or the function for detecting the ink level is disabled. For it Make sure that you install ink cartridges at correct position as indicated by the label on the print head holder. Press push mark until ink cartridge click into the place.
If you are sure then you have installed ink cartridge properly then try following to stop the flashing of red Light.
  1. Lift the lid to the printer (cartridges are on the right side.)
  2. Turn the printer off, then power it on again.
  3. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts.
  4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct.)
  5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover.
  6. Reconnect the power cord. The power and the resume lights (green and red) should be on.
  7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and close the top cover.
Now Turn On the printer, Mostly this issue is resolved by this,
But if still you get the message and red light still flash then surely its an issue of Ink Cartridge, your ink Cartridge is defective, You need to change the ink cartridge, Your problem will be solved.
I hope this solution helps you.Don't hesitate to let me know if you still have some confusion in your mind.
Please Rate my solution as "Maximum Stars" and then give your Words of Appreciation as a Feedback.
Thank you Sir/Ma'am for taking my service and fir using FixYa

Lost my manual, need to change the ink cartridge, help


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
  3. Step 3 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.
  4. Step 4 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.
  5. Step 5 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 color.
