Lexmark P6250 black ink cartridge won t print

When the black ink cartridge runs out of ink I replace it with a new one and it won't print. I repeat the process and it still won't print. I've used alcohol swabs to clean the print area and it still won't print. Please advise. Thanks.

    Installed new black & color cartridge.

    Printing skips in places and the ink smears.

    Have tried cleaning with swab in alchol

    What is the foam type item that runs along the printer behind the cartridges ? This appears worn

    Thank You

Write to Lexmark - you won't get any joy, but their reply might be interesting. I suspect that Lexmark builds a chip into their cartridges preventing it being refilled. When replying to me they did not admit this, but did not deny it, simply stating that their cartridges were designed for single use only. When I said that, apart from the cost, I wanted to minimise my impact on the environment by refilling cartridges, they pointed out their proud association with Planet Ark. I suspect that Planet Ark is happy to be an apologist for corporate vandals, and I seriously question their 'green' credentials. Order your next cartridges from Europe where the printer companies are not allowed to chip their products.

If you have thoroughly cleaned down in print cartidge area, and printhead, with no ink coming away, remove cartridge. Repeat manual clean, use a baby wipe and wipe gold head that ink comes out of as well (if your cartridge has this. Replace. Reset ink levels in main profile page of printer interafce. Try again. If no go, try turning printer off, unplugging, replugging after a while, turning on. Retry print job. Make sure no print jobs are queued up by cancellin all jobs before you try and print again. If nothing else works i would buy a new cartridge and hope you have receipt as it may be a dud. This can happen. I have had a few over the years.

    you are most welcome Unoroby. Most cartridges can cause some issues at some time, but not usually major. Keep a list of techniques next to the priter to remind you what to do when little things go wrong. I refil my ink cartridges myself and still occasionally get air bubbles denying uniform printing until you blow in it to clear it, but when you are on the spot it is hard to remember what to do. I have a llittle checklist myself! Good luck in future. You save heaps by refilling yourself.

You could try removing and reinstalling both carts, not just the black.

I have a Lexmark Pinnacle Pro 901 printer and its set up to print using black ink only, but it keeps telling to replace color cartridges and it won't let me print at all, how do I print using blac


The printer would need all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to continue printing - that's to prevent damaging the printhead. Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.


To save on your ink investment, try printing in draft mode and by making sure that your printing preferences is set to print using black ink only.

My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.

Can one reset the Lexmark P6250 printer refilled cartridge?


No, you can usually tell your printer to "ignore ink levels" when it gives the ink low warning on your computer screen. As long as they print just keep printing until they run out.

New black ink cartridge is fitted correctly, but not recognised by the printer, why? lexmark p6250 model



Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Your ink cartridges have dried out. Replace the black to confirm this prognostication and, if black works, replace color also. If you are into refilling ink cartridges youself try soaking the black one in 91% rubbing alcohol in a small ziploc type bag for several days. when the alcohol becomes ink colored, remove the cartridge from the baggie, dry it with tissue paper, reinstall it in the printer and up to 3 times run a clean the nozzles page until it prints a solid black line. Repeat with the color cartridge. Good luck.

There are 2 possible problems, or the cartridge is a refilled one or some problem by the cartridge itself. Try to change the cartridge.
