Question about Lexmark Z715 InkJet Printer
I was trying to print on photo paper last night when the paper jammed and ink spit all over the inside of the printer. Now, when I print I have a line go down the page of color. Seems like the printer heads are dirty. I have it hooked up to a Gateway PC computer. How do I solve this? Do I use a paper towel and clean up the inside or do I go into the printers and faxes folder on the command panel to clean the printer heads or cartriage? I have a Lexmark Z715.
My printer is printing light then dark.. and I've tried to run the printer clean thro the computer n it seem to work then it went back to light n dark printing
Can u help

To do a manual clean (ie not using your pc's printer cleaner, which you should do as well anyway) you need proper cleaning solution, unscented baby wipes, cotton buds and paper towel. You open unit, remove cartridges, clean inside where cartridge sits until no colour comes out anymore, clean all visible ink leaks and marks you can see, especially is it spat ink out etc, also, clean the heads of cartridges conatct, but be very careful not to apply too much pressure as you can damage the points. Replace cartridges, try and print again. Remeber to reset ink levels.
