I put in a new colour cartridge and subsequently printed a (black and white) letter.
When the printer was next used, the paper jammed, and the printer was switched off. The paper was pulled out (and there is no sign that there is any left), and the printer switched on again. Ther was then a continuous motoring noise for about four seconds followed by a flashing on/off light. The printer will not print, and when the front is lifted up (as if to change a cartridge) the cartridges do not move to the centre.

Re: X1270 - flashing light.
Sounds like the paper jam might have stripped some teeth off the gears in the printer or the motor might have failed have a visual look at the gears that pull the paper through if broke measure it and tell me how many teeth it has i might have one, or even the motor i have extra printers lexmarks for parts.

when you press ctrl+p for print there is a setting there by the bottom left which says "Print:" beside it check the check the list if it says "all pages in range"if not press it and then press the word
There should be four ink cartridges inside the printer: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK.
While monitors build colours out of three emissive (active) base colours, red, green and blue, printers usually build them out of four absorbing (passive) inks, so-called CMYK. The black is referred to by its last letter to avoid confusion with Blue.
On most printers, since they usually print in black ink over white paper (and black is used to darken all other colours), the K cartridge is either bigger than the others, or needs to be replaced more often.
I think you printer cartridge as sensor which ink levels as it is failed in the black cartridge ,you can either clean the contacts the printer and cart with dry tissue paper and replace and set printer installing new cart or use it like this because the printer company doe not support refilled cartridges to be used .
I can't imagine where toner could possible go from one of these sort of cartridges except on to your paper, I had a customer once with the same request and I found on their letter head that they printed with it had a single band of yellow across it hence excess yellow use,,,,,, Do your print runs of anything contain dark bands/underlines? I guess check to see if white background in any prints has a blueish tinge to it, or possiblly somehow black is running out and it is printing the blacks by mixing the colours (Check black block and text to see if it is really black not heaps dark blue to ensure black toner is operating)
next I'd be questioning if cartridges where brother ones?
Is it a new cartridge? If the cartridge has been sitting a while it can get clogged. Try using a moist paper towel and gently wiping the cartridge where the ink comes out. You could also try running the Lexmark Solutions Center program and use the clean nozzles option to force it to squirt out some black ink.
click on start, then click run, type in the word services.msc, you will then get a list of options scroll down the lost to the letter p and find the word print spooler. click print spooler once then in the left corner you will have to options, either to stop or refresh, before doing anything take the usb out of the back of the printer, then click on stop, then click start, then click refresh, after this put your usb back in the printer, and that ''should'' solve the problem. email me if works or does not, thanks
