Z11 Printe Cartridge Stuck

Replaced the cartridge and had to load up the driver. The system asked to run an alignment process and proceeded to push two pages out of the printer with no printing. The system reported an error with the print job. Now the print cartridge and holder are stuck to the extreme right of the machine. Can't move it.

Hi,
According to your problem first make sure the cartridge you have replaced are original and not refilled old cartridge. Always using original cartridge is recommended. If the all of the above conditions are OK then first align the cartridges and also clean the cartridge head. You can also replace the same cartridge after a little shaking of cartridge. Take out the cartridge from the printer by the recommended process, shake the cartridge and make sure the ink is OK and not dry, then replace it again. open the printing preferences window form printer properties in your PC and align the cartridges, then reboot the printer after deleting all print job in print queue.

If an alignment page does not print when the product is turned on or off, the issue is resolved. If an alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, you should replace the cartridges with new HP cartridges. Continue to Step two: Remove the print cartridges.

I have a non HP cartridge in my K550 it will printe one copy and then ask for an authentic HP cartridge, I reset and will again get one copy and then the request for HP cartridge...How can I by-pass this...


Each printer require certain matched type of cartridge, if you use another type of cartridge it may broke the system or the printer itself. Instead of trying to skip this notification, I think it would be wiser if you change the cartridge with the original one. It may more expensive, but guaranteed compatible with the printer and the software.
If you resist use this non HP cartridge, try to re-install the driver with this cartridge attach in the printer.

Hope this help.

Lights are flashing on printer and it will not print . the voice says there is a problem with the printer. I did the alignment process but the voice keeps saying there is a problem. I took both cartridges...


There 3 light on the printer that able to indicate to user when problem occur. Which is the light u mean here?
37d307a.jpg
1st button light blink rapidly = the printer may be out of paper, so load more paper and press the 1st button itself to continue. Or may be paper jam is occur, so clear the paper jam and press the 1st button light itself to continue.

If 1st button light blink slowly = mean the cartridge carriers are stuck, so raise the scanner unit and remove any object blocking the path of the cartridge carrier, make sure the cartridge are closed and installed properly, then lift the scanner unit, gently push the scanner support towards the cartridge carriers, and carefully lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed. After that press the 1st button itself to continue.

If 2nd LED light blinking = the color cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 2nd LED light is ON = the color cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

If 3rd LED light blinking = the black cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 3rd LED light is ON = the black cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

Triple vertical printing with Z11


Here's what worked for me: (I'm using a black ink cartridge, but my 'printer properties' were set for a color cartridge, thus basically sending a '3-color signal' to my printer; making it print in triple vertical.)
Go to Settings > Control Panel > Printers. Right click on your printer, and click Properties. Click the Cartridge Maintenance tab, then click Install / Change Cartridge. Select the cartridge you are using in the drop-down list, and click Continue. Print an Alignment Page. If this dosen't work, close everything and try it again: I had to do it twice to get mine to work. Hope this helps!

Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?


Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from www.cables2u.co.uk). First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!

Your printer thinks you are using a color cartridge. If have the lexmark printer manager software, go to "install new cartirdge" and tell it that you are using a black cartridge. Otherwise, install a printer driver, reinstall the printer, and set it up again.
