"set ink cartridge" is the message preventing me from printing however all of the ink cartridges have been set (installed) which I have dbl.checked. I have tried simply turning the printer off and on again and re-installing the inks (which are brand new,) I have tried pressing various buttons and I just get beeped at. What the heck is going on?!

You may need a new carriage assembly, with the ink removed, with a mirror you can see down in front where the ink cart. circuit board contacts the carriage. Each slot should have 4 gold wires all of them straight. Bent ones can be straightened carefully, any missing, you'll need a new carriage assembly, a shop repair.

Lexmark x7170 changed ink cartridge. test sheet comes up great, print something and it says ink low. i tried to shut off 5x's to maybe reset/ reinstalled ink cartridges same message. cleaned heads


The Lexmark x7170 should let you continue printing with the ink cartridge regardless of the estimated ink with most cartridges. The only exception to this is if the cartridges are part of Lexmark's returns programme. I would advise removing the cartridge and checking for small text stating "Return Programme Cartridge" on the label. If this is present sadly there is no way of continuing, apart from buying a new cartridge.

With regards to the low ink estimate, am I right in assuming you are using a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge? If so this is unavoidable but should not prevent you from printing until the ink physically runs out.

Disable the empty cartridge indicator


You won't be able to disable the notification. Also, you won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all of the cartridges with sufficient ink levels to continue printing - that's to prevent damaging the printhead.

I have a Lexmark Pinnacle Pro 901 printer and its set up to print using black ink only, but it keeps telling to replace color cartridges and it won't let me print at all, how do I print using blac


The printer would need all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to continue printing - that's to prevent damaging the printhead. Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.


To save on your ink investment, try printing in draft mode and by making sure that your printing preferences is set to print using black ink only.

Ink shows full but color won't print


Uncommon faults are with the electronic drivers in the printer system that drive and control the printer cartridges. This is providing the cartridges are proven to not be defective. Also, jammed nozzles will prevent printing.

Make sure your software is not set to print in monochrome (B&W) only .

Replaced all the ink cartridges, yet is will not print



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

hi,
Ink-backup mode lets you continue printing with one print
cartridge when the other print cartridge has run out of ink.
Ink-backup mode allows the printer to operate using only one print cartridge. It is initiated
when a print cartridge is removed from the cradle.
Exiting Ink Backup mode
Install two print cartridges in the printer to exit ink-backup mode.


Cheers !!!!
