Try soaking the print head in a shallow dish of really hot water. Blot dry with a paper towel. You should be able to see the colors on the towel if you cleared the clog.

Lexmark printer not dispensing ink


First, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Second, try updating the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

If the firmware update doesn't help, please perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If it still doesn't help, please contact our technical support team.

Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on your printer. On the printer touchscreen, touch Ink Levels > More Options > Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, please contact the Lexmark Technical Support Center or point your browser to http://bit.ly/lFKDzs for online technical assistance.

If you wish to set this as your default print setting, please follow steps below:
For Windows:
  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Open Printers and Faxes.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark S300 Series print object and click on Properties.

  4. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).

Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.
Note: The 100 standard cartridges yield around 175 ISO Pages. You can also save on ink and stretch your ink investment if you use only 100XL high yield cartridges. These contain almost 3x as much ink as a standard cartridge for a small increment in price.

My pro905 stopped printing in black although cartridge is showing 50% full. what could be the problem?


Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. It could be that your black cartridge needs cleaning. Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on the printer. Press Ink Levels -> press More Options -> select Deep Clean Printhead. The printer will then print a clean cartridge nozzles page. If black ink is not printed on the page, you may need to update your printer's firmware. The update corrects print quality issues on your printer. You can easily download and install the update using this link Lexmark Platinum Pro905 Firmware Update. Download and install the Pro905 update. Thanks.

Lexmark 1240 black ink prints in streaks.


Take the cartridges out, then unplug the machine so the cartridge holder stays in the middle. Take a bunch of wet q-tips and clean all around where the ink would come out. Check rollers and anywhere the ink could have dripped. Double check the maint. station, sometimes there is a wiper thingy that jumps up to wipe the inks.

Lex 5150 - not printing black well


what you may have to do is clean the rollers, good place to clean is where you insert the cartridges, open the lid so the machine thinks your going to repalce the ink, cut the power from the mains, now you can proceed to to clean the inside, remove both in cartradges and clean where they instert, toilet roll or kitchen roll will do because they soak up the ink, then, and be very gentle, slide the mechanism to the left hand side so you can clean underneath, after cleaning power the printer up so that it still thinks you are changing the ink, the cartridge housing should be where you can access them so you can the put the ink back in, then you need to use the the lexmark software to re-align the cartridges and also print a test page, keep on doing this until the inkjets are performing properly

Black ink not printing


Try replacing the ink cartridge first, just to ensure it is not the cartridge.

If the printer still does not print, then try performing head cleaning procedure from printer software, under start menu in Windows.

If still no luck, then that means that the printer head is clogged with dry ink, or it is defective. The printhead must be removed and soaked in cleaning solution overnight.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.


Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.
