Won't print or copy

Relatively new - took out black cartridge and shook as stated in solutions.
How much black ink is supplied with new printer? Haven't printed any more than 20 pages since first getting printer.
Started giving me a problem with printing colors, but not black.
Do I need a new black ink?

If printer was idle for weeks, even if "relativly new", run cleaning in control panel/printers and faxs/maintanence.
If still inoperative contact manufactor, see about support or warrenty claim. Not to bash lexmark but, the cheaper of their printers work the best, the costly ones like the all-in-one I bought from them, was used for three months, I hated it and threw it out.(cost $300.00)

Sounds like the JEt for the Black might have clogged or the print head has malfunctioned.

Not copying or printing

Your printer is telling you it cannot allign the cartridge due to tape, did you remove all the tape off a new cartridge? I use the cleaning solution that comes with the ink refil kits to clean the printer heads and bottom of contact, and have you checked for roller jams, paper jams etc inside unit itself. Also, could be a commincation error. Try turning off unit, unplugging it and reverse, try agian, this resets it. Good luck, post back if no go cheers lilacgerry xxx

Phisically unplug the printer and wait a minute. Plug it back in with the new cartridge installed while the printer is off.

Printing Problems

My compaq ij300 was doing the same thing. I removed the cartridge, took a kleenex and wiped the back of the cartridge until it was completely dry and shiny looking...until no more ink would come off on the kleenex. Replaced the cartridge and aligned it using the printing software. I didn't use the test page, just typed a one-line document and hit Print. That took care of the problem.
