Re: My Printer won't print colour properly

Remove inks from printhead and soak in a shallow amount of windex window cleaner overnight, rinse well with warm, to hot water, wipe completely dry(and blot with paper towels at the ink recievers) re-install with the inks and run cleaning mode 2-3 times.
This should take care of the problem.

Blue colour is missing from colour cartidge

Something may have gotten stuck in the blue ink and clogged it. If the cartridge is new you may be able to send it back and get it replaced, If not you may just be out of blue ink.

My lexmark X1270 Printer is only printing in colour ......wont print in black

It could be that your black cartridge needs cleaning or is not properly seated in the carrier. Open the printer cover and reseat the black cartridge. Close the printer cover. Open Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Go to Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal lines. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the nozzles and clean them.

Lexmark x1270 won't print in colour

There is nothing wroung with refilling but there is something wroung with the cartridge if it does not print. You might have ran out of refill cycles on that particular cartridge and not even know about the cycle requirments for lexmark printers. Your issue could be resolved by purchasing a new cartridge fixing the old one is not going to cut it.

Thanks and please do rate your experience with my solution.

Same thing...printer is running, new cartridges but no ink on the page!! :

Have you cleaned the printer heads? Go into your lexmark program and look in maintainance. Clean nozzles or heads. If this doesnt work take the cartridge out and put it in a cup with about 1 cm of hot water for a few minutes. Dry the cartridge on some tissue and hopefully you will see all three colour on the tissue. Reinsert and clean print heads again. This normally works.

Scanner problem

If you have internet access you need to get on lexmark site and look for Lexmark Imaging Studio,from downloading this all your problems can be sorted,pretty self explanitory and user friendly,if you are using your printer to print off photographs it is unfortunate that your colour cartridge will suffer!!

Help - Black not printing

Try cleaning the contact points of the cartridge itself and the unit that holds the cartridge with alchol. If still not printing try nossle cleaning from your printer properties.

My Lexmarkx1270 will not print any black text etc

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.
