I ddon't know how to get the printer to recognize the color ink that I have installed. The printer will not print.

Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge for your model. Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles using the computer. Load plain paper. Open the Lexmark Solution Center (go to Start, Programs, Lexmark 1100 Series, Lexmark Solution Center). From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Click Print. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through to clean the clogged nozzles. Try to print your file again and check it's properly printing now.

I have a Lexmark x1185 and it doesn't print anymore (It worked fine a few weeks ago). I can scan with it normally though. Basically, when I turn it on, the power button flashes... I already tried...

Hello. You might want to give it a fresh start by properly uninstalling it from your computer. To uninstall the software properly on Windows 7, go to Start Menu > Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Restart the pc. To reinstall, use this driver from the Lexmark website. Just click on the link: . Though it's a 64-bit Vista driver, it's the same driver used on Windows 7. Download and install the software.

Printer wont print, but it is going through the motions.

If ink cartridges are new, perform print head or maintenance cleaning at least 3x consecutively.

Lexmark x1180

This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.

Lexmark x1180 blank ink not coming through

You can refill cartridges only a certain number of times.
Check the copper contacts and see if they look like new. any amount of wear and they wont work anymore. That being said, All printer manufacturers say to buy new and not refill.Maybe that is a moneymaker for them, however, I have never had good luck with refilled cartridges.
