Something may have gotten stuck in the blue ink and clogged it. If the cartridge is new you may be able to send it back and get it replaced, If not you may just be out of blue ink.

After refilling my cartridge it shows ink level low for one cartridge and gives two error messages for every printing but prints. But for another cartridge it does not print and give message to buy a new...


Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.

My lexmark X1270 Printer is only printing in colour ......wont print in black


It could be that your black cartridge needs cleaning or is not properly seated in the carrier. Open the printer cover and reseat the black cartridge. Close the printer cover. Open Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Go to Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal lines. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the nozzles and clean them.

We have a X5650 Lexmark printer. The ink cartridges were both replaced with certified cartridges (parts 36 and 37xl) . When installed the printer does not recognize that the cartridges have ink and...


It could be that the cartridges are not inserted properly in the carrier or just needs cleaning. Try to remove both cartridges from the printer and manually clean the nozzles. You may refer to this article on How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually. Then reinsert one cartridge first and close the cover. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error. You can also try the Clean Cartridge function on the printer by pressing the Setup button -> Maintenance -> Clean Cartridges. It will then print the clean nozzles test page. If error continues, replace the faulty cartridge.

Lexmark x1270 printer will not print any colour 2 new ink cartridges fitted ,only black ink working



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. 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

Lexmark x1270 poor printing


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.
