SOURCE: Lexmark P6250 black ink cartridge won t print

Write to Lexmark - you won't get any joy, but their reply might be interesting. I suspect that Lexmark builds a chip into their cartridges preventing it being refilled. When replying to me they did not admit this, but did not deny it, simply stating that their cartridges were designed for single use only. When I said that, apart from the cost, I wanted to minimise my impact on the environment by refilling cartridges, they pointed out their proud association with Planet Ark. I suspect that Planet Ark is happy to be an apologist for corporate vandals, and I seriously question their 'green' credentials. Order your next cartridges from Europe where the printer companies are not allowed to chip their products.

SOURCE: Lexmark X1185 won't Print Color

On your printer, there is a clean print head adjustment,it is in your menus on the printer itself, It should also be on your print driver in properties. I would try running that up to 5 times before proceding to anything else.
Check and be sure the cartridge expiration date is not exceded. The liquid ink cartridges have an expiration dates. Even though the cartridge is new, Do not rule out a bad or for some reason dryed out cartridge or blocked port at the bottom. If it is indeed brand new and you have the receipt, I honetsly would suspect the cartridge itself.
Ok now, we tried the print head cleaning, and a second cartridge.
Next, I would remove the cartridge, turn the printer off and lightly, very lightly dampn a dusfree cloth with some alcohol, and where the cartridge is located, clean those contacts. reinsert the cartridge and see what happens.
Lastly, you can unplug the printer, remove the cartridges, and place a paper towel under the area where the cardtidge latches in, and dribble in a soapy cleaner, like fantastic, because those inks will dry out in the ports and not allow the ink to flow properly, If you do that, wipe all the excess cleaner up and leave the printer off for an hour or two to allow any remaining liquid to evaporate. Don't use a lot, but trickle it in until you see the ink start to wash out and all the ink is removed.
Take your time, and go from easiest to more difficult. I think that is the process I presented.

SOURCE: I just refilled black ink of my new printer

“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

    SOURCE: My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.

    You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels 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.

    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.

    HP L7590 black ink printing poorly even with new HP cartridge


    I have had the same problem It is the print head not the cartridge If your printer is still under warranty have the printhead(s) replaced if not Open the unit where the print heads are and hold the OK button for 5 seconds. The Print head carriage will move to the left

    Carefully remove the KY (Black & Yellow) Print head with a cotton swab and alcohol clean the contacts and replace the printhead. If this does not work remove the printhead and then with a spray bottle spray the nozzle area on the bottom (DO NOT TOUCH THE NOZZLES AS THEY WILL BE DESTROYED) HP techs have told me this will void any warranty so act accordingly I use a printhead cleaning solution available from most any online ink supplier

    Replace the printhead after it has dried out (less than a minute). The printer will then go through an alignment cycle and should print I had to do this several times before the print head performed as it should

    Lexmark x1270 poor printing


    Try these steps after these if you face the same problem then you need to get the cart exchanged as it may be defective as Lexmark cart comes with 6 months warranty ...

    # 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.
