Question about Lexmark X2500 All-In-One Printer
Depending on the model, you probably only have 2 ink cartridges. one for BLACK and one is a tr-color (Cyan-Yellow-Magenta). That is if Lexmark is still shipping cartridges with their printers. They are probably only "starter" cartridges with limited ink in them. Is your Lexmark printer utilities telling you that a cartridge is missing? Did you remove the protective tapes off the cartridge heads before installing them? Try reinstalling the cartridges again and when the utilities screen pops up, tell it the cartridge has already been used, or try telling it that they are new. If this printer is new to you but is OLD stock, it may have been sitting for quite some time and the ink is dried up. Cartridges really only contain a relatively small amount of ink in a saturated sponge and they do dry up. If you want, and the printer is older, get some lab swabs (longer than a Q-Tip with cotton at one end only). Ask a pharmacy clerk if they have any. Moisten with alcohol and try cleaning the place where the cartridge seats into the carrier. I don't remember if Lexmark print heads are in the cartridge itself, or separate in the carrier. Worst case is make sure the drivers you are using for the printer are matched to the operating system you are using. Unplug the printer, uninstall the Lexmark drivers, reinstall the correct drivers, plug the USB back into the printer and start over. Printer and printer DRIVER problems seem to be the worst. If any of this helps, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck.
