Check that there is no foreign objects stuck in the middle and that the cartridges are well in place.

    That means that the cartridges are not well snapped in place, or that you are using the wrong cartridges.

    Ensure the cartridges are the right ones, the ones listed for your printer.

    Ensure that they are snapping well in place.

    Ensure that the cellotape on top of cartridge is being removed.

    Check that there is no foreign object (eg.paper) inside the ink carriage.

Alignment problem error message.


It could be due to cartridges in the printer. Try the steps below to identify and fix the problem:
  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, try this approach:

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 4200 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Align to fix blurry edges. Your printer will then print a page that will help align the cartridges.

Lift the print cartridge latch to the open position. 5. Slide the print cartridge out of the print cartridge cradle. 6.

Green light flashing wont print


Many possible issues:
1) the cover is open (close cover)
2) Out of paper (add paper)
3) printer can't pick up media (change media, change printer print mode setting or paper type selection)
4) Paper jam (remove all media from the paper trays, press the power button once, remove the back cover and pull the jammed paper from that point then close the cover, reload the paper and try to print)
5) Problem with the cartridge (remove the cartridges and then reinsert them, try a cleaning cycle. Alternatively manually clean the cartridges (remove them from the printer and power down and unplug the unit). Use distilled or bottled water and cotton swabs. Slightly moisten the swab and wipe the face, edges of the cartridges - do not touch the contacts or nozzles. Wipe down the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls. Reinsert the cartridges, close the cover and power up the unit. Calibrate the cartridges. If this doesn't help, replace the cartridges.)
6) Loss of electrical contact between the carriage connections (press and hold the power button and open and close the top cover 4 times. Look at the resulting self-test print out. Remove and reinsert the cartridges and try to print. Next clean the cartridges and cartridge cradle as above. Replace the cartridges.)

I hope one of these solutions work. Otherwise the printer needs service.

Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
