What is the cause of new cartridges running out of ink while checking trying to align print head?


You must replace the print head., as long as printer detecting that nozzles are not firing properly., it keep on cleaning the head, result it will drains the inks from the ink tanks...once you replaced both print head & tanks, take print outs at least twice in a week., perform nozzle cleaning once in a month to avoid this type of nonsense..

Black ink will not print


Have you tried setting the color to black cartridge only. You may be printing the black with a combination of colored inks. I occasionally have a similar problem. Sometimes I can get the black to work by taking a paper towel dampened with distilled water and holding it against the cartridge print head until I see black ink coming out. Replace the cartridge and try printing again. If this doesn't work try a new cartridge and run through your Printer Settings, making sure they are all set properly.

I was only getting the bottom half of printed words. Ran test pages, alignment, clean printheads. These inks are brand new. It also did it with my other inks which is why I replaced them. I have Kodak...


Cleaning the print-heads is the correct action to take -- if the ink-jets are clogged, then the ink (in either old or new cartridges) cannot be sprayed onto the paper.

Note that the print-head has multiple jets -- like painting across a wall with a wide paint-brush.
So, if you don't have paint on the top half of the brush, then only the bottom half of each row on the wall will get painted.

Try some more head-cleaning cycles.

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

My copy prints come out blurry after changing ink cartiges


Try this:
Checking the print quality:
  1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY and press Menu/Set or Set.
  4. Press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP begins printing the Print Quality Test Sheet.
  5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the print quality needs improvement.
  6. Closely examine the print quality of the four color blocks that are formed by short diagonal lines on the Test Sheet.
    If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (YES) and press Stop/Exit.
    If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO) and go to Step 7.
  7. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors. Press 2 (NO) for black or three colors with the problem.
  8. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
    Press 1 (YES) and the MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
  9. After the cleaning is finished, press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.
  10. If you can see missing short lines in any of the four color blocks press 2 (NO) and repeat the quality check and cleaning process. Repeat this procedure at least 5 times if print quality remains a problem. If short lines are still missing after the fifth cleaning and test print, replace the necessary ink cartridges. If the print quality of the 4 color blocks is OK, press 1 (YES).
Setting the Alignment:
  1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT and press Menu/Set or Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key to select ALIGNMENT and press Menu/Set or Set.
  4. Press Black (Mono) Start or Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP begins printing the Alignment Check Sheet.
  5. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the alignment needs adjustment.
  6. Examine the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI test prints on the Alignment Check Sheet. If the number 5 sample of both the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI most closely matches the 0 sample, press 1 (YES).
    If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.
  7. Press Stop/Exit.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please RATE it.
    Thanks, Joe

The black cartbridge is not printing and won't align


Dies this model have a separate print head? Or is the head part of the cartridge? If it is the latter then it seems to be a data transfer problem- which means possibly the contacts in the machine that mate with the contacts on the cartridge are dirty or damaged. In the first instance try gentle rubbing with a moist tissue the in machine contacts then try. Also try the Lexmark website Tech Support Team.

Black not printing


I just ran into a similar issue with my MP390. Actually both the color and black inks were not printing very well. I would get very inconsistent printing. Fixed the problem very easily and quickly as follows: On the top of each print cartridge, there is a small hole. Remove the print head (lift the gray bar at the front of the print head and lift out the print head) with the cartridges still in place. Holding the print head over a piece of paper/paper towel, blow into the holes on the top of the cartridges (either directly or using a straw/tube of some kind). You should get ink coming out of the botton of the print head, both color and black. Replace and print head and test print.
