Common problem with Epson Printers.
Either the print head is clogged, or the tube that goes from the pump to the printhead fell off.

Open the printer cover so that the ink cartridges are in open view and then UNPLUG THE PRINTER" so that the ink cartridges wont go back to home position. (If there is a change INK cartridge button, then press that then uplug the printer when the cartridge stops moving.)

You can try to clean the print head by folding up a couple paper towels, then saturate it with windex with amonia. Place it under the print head assembly and manually move the print head assembly over the paper towel back and forth to clean the bottom of the print head assembly. You should start seeing ink on the paper towel.

After cleaning, run the cleaning program that Epson has, and try it out.
If it still doesn't work, then you might have to repeat this a couple more times.
If it still doesn't work, then it might be time to get a new printer.
Hope this info helps.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Printer dock won't print. Says ''no Paper,'' but is full

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: lexmark x1270 printer power button blinking won't print

I had the same issue with my Lexmark X1290, I solved it by opening up the device, so the ink cartridges should pop, they didn't so I pressed the power button to switch it off, and then switched it back on (with the device open!) and all the paper flowed out, the flashing stopped and it could print again. Good Luck!

Not printing


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

Do my pages print out blank


It could be that your cartridge nozzles need some cleaning. Long period of non-usage can lead to drying of ink and clogging in the cartridge nozzles. To clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on 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. Then try to print your document again to verify that the cartridges are functioning now.

Lexmark X1270 All In One Printer not printing.


If the printer has not been used for a while the catridges my have dried ink on them. Sometimes you can get them to work if you touch an alcohol wipe to the cartridge where the ink comes out. note: only touch the wipe to the cartridge for a second or two each time. I would try this for about 3 or 4 times to see if the ink will come out. Put the cartridge back in after each try to see if it works. The other option is to replace the cartridges.

My lexmark printer wont print, goes through the motions but will NOT PRINT!!!!


Check your owner's guide (or download if you don't have it) for instructions for printing a test page. Or, open the Lexmark software and go to maintenance to print a test page.
If it still comes out blank, then the printhead/cartridge is either empty or completely clogged.
If you are not getting any flak from the Lexmark software about being empty, remove the cartridge(s) and set them in a 1/4" of household ammonia for a half-hour, blot them on an absorbent paper towel to see if they produce a stain, clean any residual ammonia from the cartridge(s) and reinstall them. Your printer will likely ask if you have replaced cartridge(s) and answer 'yes.' This should start the cleaning/realignment routines and finally, maybe even printing.

Printer not printing. Printer goes through the motions, but nothing on paper. Ink cartridges are full


1. Make sure plastic (all of it) is not on the cartridge contacts.
2. Wipe the print area (bottom of cartridge) with damp cloth, If does not work, try warm water - even letting it stand for a few minutes.
3. Go to the printing services and service the device (this function let the printer try to clear any clogged areas that may exist.

Lexmark x1270 not printing in color


Is the cartridge a Lexmark cartridge or a refilled cartridge?

Remove the cartridge from the printer, take a damp paper towell and wipe the cartridge in one direction on the bottom. Is Ink coming out? If yes then put the cartridge back in the printer and try to print again. If the answer is no and the cartridge is brand new you need to return it to you point of sale and get a new one as its a bad cartridge.

If the cartridge is a refilled cartridge that is probably the problem. Lexmark printers do not support refilled cartridges.

Thanks
