Question about Lexmark X3470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
For no apparent reason the cartridge starts going back and forth then after so many times stops and the light stays on with no message and I can't turn it off or print. I tried a new cartridge, brand new, not filled. Tried cleaning contacts and going into the hardware test and nothing happens except it goes into the mode but won't change when I hit the mode button three times like the test says to try. Of course I didn't buy the extended warranty on this one. Any ideas?
I cant put inkjet into printer

Stop your pain and replace, printhead is stuffed too expensive
Faulty cart (I assume you have relaced both with new) too expensive,
Board fault too expensive to fix.
I know you bought a new cart but you are throwing good time and money after bad, get a new one with a warranty and new inks, don't compromise product with refills, enjoy hassle free printing...
I guess that this machine has in the past had dodgy ink running in its vains and now it showing the signs of it
........but there is another possibility, printers have a thin plastic strip on them that runs the width of print area.
This strip has lines on it and the printers head reads these lines to know where it is. This strip can get dirty (usally from refilling), you could try cleaning it gently with metho and a rag
(some inkjets use disc on side of machine instead)
