Inkjet alignment and cleaning

I can't remember where to find the program that prints the alignment test and cleans the inkjet nozzles. I tried Control Panel - Printers - Properties and don't see it. Thanks.

Manteinance program run automatically every time i try to print something


Its not maintenance programme, its print head alignment page.Once print heads are aligned successfully, you wont get this page.
Reason: One or more print head nozzles are not firing/blocked/dried up the align page will not prints properly to read result printer unable to align P.heads. You can observe the print quality, based on that replace/clean the particular print head(s) and check. Verify that each line it will read & marked as a "right tick". If its marks like "X" ensure that align page not successful.
If you are confused better replace all(four) print heads, to get out of this issue peacefully.But ensure that before replacing the print heads,all cartridge ink level should be more then 50%.

The printer will not print in black ink


Hi

Try going into Printing Preferences in the Kodak Printer Program and perform Maintenance.

You do not say which operating system you are using.

Start > (Control Panel) > (Category View) Printer > right click on the Kodak icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Nozzle Check > Head Cleaning > test print > repeat nozzle check, head cleaning & test printing until problem is gone.

If this does not fix the problem, replace the black cartridge > head cleaning > test print.

You might need to perform head cleaning after every cartridge change.

I hope this helps.

I have try to print but its not printing. i've allready fill the ink still the page come out blank.


It could be due to the refilled cartridge that you are using. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance.
You can try to clean the cartridge nozzles. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. On the printer control panel, press Copy.
  2. Press Options until Maintenance is highlighted.
  3. Press the right arrow until Align Cartridges or Clean Cartridges appears, and then press Select. A test page will then be printed forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print your document again to verify that the cartridges are working.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your cartridges with new genuine Lexmark cartridges.

I just got a new black ink for my Lexmark X6150 printer and when I did the alignment test, it turns out a like dark grey instead of black. The printer also said to remove tape from ink but all the tape has...


You should try cleaning your cartridge nozzles. If you're using Windows, go to Start -> Programs -> Lexmark X6100 Series -> Lexmark Solution Center -> Maintenance tab -> Clean to fix horizontal streaks. The printer will then print a test page.
You can also manually clean the cartridge nozzles. Follow the steps in this article : How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually.
Thanks.

Hi, my Epson 2100 is printing with faint lines at regular intervals right across the page. I've done various alignment tests and cleaning tests but can't seem to clear the lines. Any advice much...


Are your alignment tests show good results? If they are, try head cleaning 3 consecutive times without printing nozzle checks. After 3 head cleanings do the nozzle check. If problem persists try printing at BEST PHOTO or whatever is the slowest print setting for your printer. Good luck!

My Lexmark Z 515 printer does not print clearly especially the second part of a piece of paper. How can I clean the printer?


Hi there,
To improve print quality
1 On the operator panel, press Options repeatedly until
Cartridges appears.
2 Press the right arrow button until Align appears, and then press
Select.
An alignment page prints. Once the alignment sheet prints, your
automatic alignment is complete.
You may need to clean the print cartridge nozzles.
Using the operator panel
1
Load paper in the All-In-One.
2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display.
3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display.
4 Press Select.
A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the
clogged nozzles.
5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
6 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
Using the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center
1
Load plain paper in the All-In-One. 2 Click Start Programs Lexmark X5100 Series Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center.
3 Click the Maintenance tab.
4 From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
5 Click Print.
6 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
7 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
8 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
If the print quality does not improve after cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles, dried ink may be on the nozzles or contacts. To wipe the print
cartridge nozzles and contacts:
1 Remove the print cartridges.
2 Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
3 Hold the cloth against the gold nozzle area for about three seconds.
Gently blot and wipe dry in one direction (this prevents the colors in
the color cartridge from mixing).
4 Remove the old cartridges
5 Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
6 Reinstall the print cartridges, and then print your document again.
7 If the print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print
nozzles up to two more times
8 If print quality is still unsatisfactory, replace your print cartridges.

Hope this helps.
Thanks
Have a good day.

All pictures appear pinkish


Either a problem with your ink, inkjet nozzles, or really bad filter on your photo program.... Try cleaning the nozzles first (print a test page and check the lines), then clean the heads a couple times, print test page again. (Control Panel, Printers/Faxes, Right Click on your printer, you'll have some option for cleaning/testing.)
