The printing preferences must have been set to print in grayscale. Try checking on the preferences.

How do I get my Lexmark X2600 to print? I got a message telling me that I would soon have to replace the black ink cartridge, and it just stopped printing. I put a new cartridge in, and it still will not...


Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove both cartridges from the printer > re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds > when the printer printer turns on, firmly re-insert the cartridges into the printer. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
You can also try to manually clean the cartridge nozzles. Wipe the cartridge print nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from possible dirt and clogs. Re-insert the cartridges and try to print a document again.

Im trying to print a black and white document but it wont let me print because my color cartridge is missing


The Lexmark X2600 requires both cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing, even if your printing in "black and white". To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink. , Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality issues.

I want to use a black only cartridge, it prints an alignment page that is black only, obviously. When I put it in then to scan it (and yes i have it placed correctly in the scanner) it gives me an error...


The diagnostic setup program assumes all the parts are loaded, including color ink cartridge.

In normal printing you can set the preferences for black ink only, no color in the Lexmark control panel software.

I installed new ink cartridges in my Lexmark X2600 printer. Print quality is faded. Cleaned cartridges twice. Print quality is still light. How do I fix this?


Go into printer properties and make sure that you don't have print quality set to draft. Try normal or best and see if that makes any difference.

What are proceedures for replacing print cartridges for Lexmark X2600 ink jet printer?


Perhaps the Lexmark X2600 User's Guide will be able to help you. To download it, click on this link: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/2600/v7649663_en.pdf. Scroll to Removing used print cartridges, Page 45, for instructions on how to replace print cartridges.

In some cases, the ink cartridge carrier won't position itself in the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the white tape in the middle inside the printer. The other end of it is connected to the carrier. Gently slide the carrier to the center. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Hope this helps.

How to refill a lexmark x2600 black ink cartridge?


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
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.

Can't print black and white only with Lexmark 2600!


Hi MikeC,

Most of the time this is due to the black cartridge being out of ink. The Lexmark uses all the colors to create black when the black ink cartridge runs out, but won't let you print black because it is essentially saving ink.

Hope that's the reason and it isn't the printer failing. Good luck! :)
