Lexmark z500-z600 wont print pictures

My printer wont print pictures. it will only print documents like words or whatever but not pictures.for example i wanted to print an attachement (which was a DL that had been scanned and emailed to me) and it just wouldnt print when I would open the attachement it would "pretend" to be printing but the page would come out blank.but if i would just print out the email the driver license WOULD print but in a very small size. I also saved the DL to my documents and pictures and then tried printing it and it just never did.and also when it prints a picture with words for example a clownfish and the information of its life cycle, the clown fish will come out black and white even if it has a colered ink cartridge and I already checked the settings in the printer and i dont have the "make colored copies print black and white" box checked. but when i print a "test" page it does print both color and black im so frustrated Im already looking to buy a new printer and im getting ready to break this piece of junk into tiny pieces.

SOURCE: Lexmark Z517 wont print black ink

I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.

SOURCE: Lexmark Z600 ONLY print test pages

Seemes very daft, and sounds like a twit, but not really.

When I recieved the new cartridge I placed it in the correct cartridge retainer in the printer matching up the dark green colour of the cartridge and the top clip, and it printed nothing even after a tryed re-seating it.
So I placed it in the other thinking maybe I somehow might have placed it in the wrong slot, so I placed it in the other (Colour), and set that up as I did the other, and it printed a blurred page but then stopped printing.
After that I then placed it back in the other cartridge retainer, set it up as the previous times when it did not work, and then it worked.

Seems strange and simple, but it did not work the first time at all, and after faffing with it finally did.

This might help someone, and then again might not.

SOURCE: printer not printing

In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel.......... Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer the Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black on the left........ Unplug the Power Supply from the printer....... Press and hold the Stop/Clear button on the Printer and Plug in the Power Supply while holding the Stop/Clear button it should say clearing on the screen at that point u can go ahead and release the Stop/Clear button.......... Now the Printer will ask for the Date Time and Country Language......... Set everything up...... Now try to Print i am sure it should work.......... Good Luck............

Try these steps after these if you face the same problem then you need to get the cart exchanged as it may be defective as Lexmark cart comes with 6 months warranty ...

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

I first scanned all the docs into the picture gallery. My professor needs them all in pdf format. How? I've got an HP Pavilion laptop. My professor's waiting for me to call her tonight when...


PDF format means legal form which is handled in Adobe Acrobat. You said you scanned your docs into the picture gallery, and I am hoping that you left them in the default format that your scanner uses instead of changing them to a picture format (like JPEG, or TIFF) or this may be too complicated to assist via email.

If you do not have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat & Adobe Reader, do a search on the internet and download then install them. They are free. Once the programs are installed, open Adobe Acrobat and click on "file" at the top left side of the screen and try and open one of the documents you saved in the picture gallery in the acrobate program. If they are compatible, all you have to do is rename and save the document in Adobe. To save it, after you have opened it in Adobe - click on file and then "save a copy" or "save as" and choose whatever the documents name is and .pdf at the end (save to a pdf format) and then you are done.

If the file format of the documents are not compatible and will not open and easily save in PDF format using the Acrobat, then I would suggest asking your teacher for an extension.

Good luck!

The black ink is NOT showing empty but it will not print


Firstly two things here assuming everything is fine with your printer.

Firstly have you changed the options in the document or picture youre trying to print? For example, if printing a document from Word, go to printing options and click advanced then print in 'black/white' rather than 'color'.

Secondly when you installed the ink cartridge in the printer, have you removed the plastic/paper sticker attached which protects the circuits and ink leakages?

good luck,

kc

Can I scan a document to PDF?


any scanner, indeed any document, picture format can be saved as pdf. i would suggest first scanning the document as text (for example to words, or openoffice or indeed whatever you use as your document management program) and then port it (sort of print operation) to any free available "translator" program which allow you to save file as pdf. alternatively you can scan your document as jpeg and then save it as pdf, but this tend to produce very messy outlook and results are usually horrible.

How do I print a Word document from a thumb drive?


IF you want to print the Word document from thumb drive using OJ Pro L7590, IT will not recognise the format of File.

If you can convert the File as Picture file, you will be able to print
this printer has OCR facility ( Optical Character Reade ) but it is Driver built and has to be used from the Software not from the Printer

The printer Pictbridge ( USB Port) to detect the Thumb drive will be able to show you pictures and let them print, however printing any RTF/TIFF/Text document, you may not be able to do so.

My printer prints email etc. but will not print anything from my computer...example: word documents


I assume you mean that you can print from Outlook or other e-mail program (Outlook Express, LiveMail, Thunderbird). Are you reading your e-mail on the same computer that can't print Word documents?

If yes, one thing to try is to change the font on the Word document. For some reason, certain fonts just do not work. (Most often it is an issue with a document (or template) created on a different computer (or before upgrading the OS) and the font info gets scrambled in the transfer.) Just select all (control-A or Edit, Select All) and choose a new font. If the document has multiple fonts, do not use select all but highlight the sections separately and change the font.

If it is a different computer, check that the network is active and that all the correct drivers are installed. (One thing to check is a Universal Print Driver (UPD) software needs both the 32 and 64 bit drivers if the network has a mix of OS's. This comes up when the printer is attached to one computer and it serves as the print server.)

Lexma all in one 5400


That has to be done from within the program you're printing from. So if you're in Microsoft Word, for example, you can dclick and drag the mouse to highlight just what you want to print, and then when you go to print, you should be able to change from 'Whole document' to 'Selection' and it will only print what you had highlighted. Not all programs will let you do that, though.

If you want to print just part of a picture, you'd have to load it in an image editor (Paint is the only one that comes free with Windows) and actually erase what you don't want, or copy and paste just what you do want into a new picture, and then print it.
