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.

SOURCE: alignment of cartridges
To align the cartridge from the control panel:
Please follow the steps given below:
1. Please Load a plain paper.
2. Press and hold the "Scan" button for three seconds.
3. An alignment page prints.
4. Place the alignment page onto the scanner glass.
5. Press the "Scan" button.
6. Once scanning is complete, the cartridge has been aligned for optimal print quality. Alignment must be complete before continuing with any print jobs.

Yes you do need 2.
All ink cartridge bays has to be filled with a working cartridge, for the print driver to allow you to print. That is why I prefer single ink type printers, so it is not so expensive to maintain the inks you don't use.

I think your printer need a reset.
please follow the steps:
1. remove the cartridges on the carrier then wipe or clean the cartridges with wet cloth.
also clean the gold connectors on the cartridges, and on the carrier also.
2. return the cartridges on the printer.
3. Turn On your printer and then OFF it by pulling the cord from the outlet.
4. Turn it On and do align cartridges.
Good Luck & please rate..
