Hey, I have the X7170 printer and haven't used it for about a year. Now, the fax, and scan works fine, but when I print a paper, it comes out blank even if the ink catridge is full. Seems that there is...


A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:
1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page.
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:
1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.
Good Luck!!!!

My pro905 stopped printing in black although cartridge is showing 50% full. what could be the problem?


Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. It could be that your black cartridge needs cleaning. Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on the printer. Press Ink Levels -> press More Options -> select Deep Clean Printhead. The printer will then print a clean cartridge nozzles page. If black ink is not printed on the page, you may need to update your printer's firmware. The update corrects print quality issues on your printer. You can easily download and install the update using this link Lexmark Platinum Pro905 Firmware Update. Download and install the Pro905 update. Thanks.

Not dark enough


If you use a refilled cartridge all print quality problems should go back to the supplier of the ink.

Lexmark does not now and never has authorized refilled cartridges on their products for this exact reason.

Lexmark cannot guarantee the quality of the ink.

What should I do if my Lexmark X 1270 keeps on paper jamming?


To solve the printing problem..


# 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.

Refilled a black ink cartridge Lexmark 82


Your printer will probably only work with orignal Lexmark cartridges. Your printer now thinks you are out of ink, so it won't print any more.

Lexmark 1270 only prints green!


Sounds like you're missing blue. Using the Lexmark software (maintanance section) that's on the PC, Clean the print heads. You should see all 3 colors (blue, red, yellow) and black. If not, buy a new cartridge as the head on the blue ink are clogged.

Hope that helps...
