My Lexmark X1270 printer at one time worked, everything was good, then when I put a new color to black will not print any other color or a black color, print only a little pale, almost do not see anything...

Lexmark products work best with genuine supplies. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, remanufactured, or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
You can try to clean your cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer. From your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X1200 Series folder > select Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that does not help, maybe it would be best to replace your supplies with genuine cartridges.
I hope this helps.

My Lexmark printer 1270 only prints in black and white although the colour cartriges have good ink levals. This has just started happening, it was happily printing in colour not long ago. Many thanks.

Jast go to print option. Then Mantainance. Then try to print a nozzale. If all the colour comes out properly ( with out dot or misline), your cartrige head is goog for print. If not, your printer cartrige head is block. To reque from the problem follow the proces:
1. Unpluge colour cartrige.
2. Try to clean the cartrige head with soft cloth and amonia gentaly.
3. Try to out the ink through the head nozzale pore by using shaking or gentaly swape by soft tissue.
4. Now put the cratrige head upon a soft tissue. ( ink will comes out). If not, repit stage 1-4 until ink come out.
Thank you

Some time it prints in pink

Do you see the color cartridge icon in the progress window being low ?. Or do you get an low ink warning dialog when you print a job. First try cleaning the cartridges if that doesnt help, you may need to replace your color cartridge.

See the below link for cleaning your cartridges, the procedure is near the end of the page:

Black will not print properly

your cartridge is about 100 pages of ink. Try to buy #16 black and #26 color for best results and economy, since #16 have about 250 pages resource.

Does the printer attempt to print? Did you replace the black or colored ink? If it was the black ink will it print in color?
If it prints in color, check the black ink cartridge for tape residue on the gold contacts. The blue tape will sometimes leave the adhesive on the cartridge and not the tape. It cleans off easy with a soft cloth.

Lexmark 3 in 1 x1270 scanner does lousy with certain colors ----blurry

Scanners (or copiers) can't improve on the image they are seeing.
If you view the labels under a bright light, you will see what the scanner is seeing too.

The only thing you can do is as you already have, use a photo editor to correct those cosmetic flaws before printing.

Will not print color

The printhead is dry. I cant say that getting it wet will help because thats dangerous with electronic equipment. But its what i did to mine and it works now.

It sounds like the #26 color cartridge needs to be replaced.
