Re: Colored Ink problem

Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for the Z35. They should be #26 (color) and #16 (black).

Make sure the contacts are clean where the cartridge connects to the printer electrically. A little alcohol wipe is good for this. Clean contacts on both the cartridge and the carrier in the printer.

My documents will not print the colored part. just Black and white

I would first check to see how low the color cartridge is. If it is out of ink, you will need to replace it.
Your Lexmark has two cartridges, one for colors and one for black.
To check the level of the ink cartridges, go to the Lexmark Solution Center. This is the software that was installed to run you Lexmark printer.
Check the cartridge ink level images that appear on each tab. If a cartridge is low, or if you have received an Ink Low message on the computer screen, install a new cartridge. An empty or low cartridge is marked with an exclamation point ( ! ).

To order print cartridges:

1 }}--> }}-->Open the }}--> }}-->Lexmark Solution Center .

2 }}--> }}-->Click the Contact Information tab.

3 }}--> }}-->Click Ordering Ink and Supplies.
For help installing a cartridge, go to How to install the print cartridge.

In order to replace the ink..please follow the following steps

Spread out a piece of newspaper where you plan to work. Remove the supplies from the refill kit. The Lexmark 44 will have one bottle of black ink, one thumb drill and one syringe. The Lexmark 43 will have one bottle each cyan, magenta and yellow, three syringes and one thumb drill.
Remove the label from the ink cartridge. The black refill hole is at the top of the ink cartridge. Use a toothpick to check the color of each fill hole on the color ink cartridge. Generally, the magenta is at the top of the cartridge, the yellow is at the left center and the cyan is at the right center.
Use the thumb drill to open up the fill hole to fit the syringe needle. Place the tip of the thumb drill on the fill hole and twist until the hole opens up larger. Do this for each color hole on the color ink cartridge.
Fill each syringe with 7 ml of color ink (one for each color) and 15 ml of black ink. Insert the syringe needle into the bottle of ink and pull the plunger upwards.
Place the tip of the syringe needle into the fill hole. Slowly press down on the plunger. If the ink seeps out while filling, stop filling the cartridge and wipe up the ink with a paper towel. Some cartridges may not need the full amount of ink. Repeat this step for each of the colored ink fill holes.
Replace the ink cartridge in the carriage of the printer. Run one to three test pages to cycle the ink and check the printing. Use any document with color on it for the Lexmark 43 and any document with black text for the Lexmark 44.

Cartridge Error message on our Lexmark X5150

The Lexmark machines are designed to kick out anything it suspects may be refilled. If your old cartridge has bad print nozzles this may be tripping the error. Printers are typically for sensitive with their color cartridges anyway because the manufacturers make more money on the color ones. You can try looking around the settings on the machine and in the printer preferences to see if you can tell it to ignore the ink levels and see if you can continue to print.

My printer wont print in color & its a new color ink cartridge

have the printer preferences been changed accidentally to print in greyscale? Is the cartridge installed correctly? Now and again if the cartridges are opened and not installed straight away the ink dries up in the nossel and clogs the printer head, easily rectified with some cleaning solution. Cartridges also go out of date. hope this helped

Removal of black ink cartridge Lexmark Z35 printer

Put your printer "on", then open the central lid, where "lexmark z35" is written. The cartridges appear.
Open the dark green lid (on the right), same color as your new cartridge. Remove the old cartridge and put the new one in, after removing the tap.
Your printer should print a test page. If it doesn't, go to "printers" in the "control panel" (panneau de configuration in french !), right click on your printer name and chose "properties".

Your ink cartridges have dried out. Replace the black to confirm this prognostication and, if black works, replace color also. If you are into refilling ink cartridges youself try soaking the black one in 91% rubbing alcohol in a small ziploc type bag for several days. when the alcohol becomes ink colored, remove the cartridge from the baggie, dry it with tissue paper, reinstall it in the printer and up to 3 times run a clean the nozzles page until it prints a solid black line. Repeat with the color cartridge. Good luck.

Colored Ink problem

Make sure the printer settings are set properly to print in color on the PC. Even if there is a color cartridge, if the PC only tells it to print black ink it's not going to use the color cartridge.
