Ive just filled my ink cartridges but have the following error message when trying to print: (see add details section)

You need to reset the chip in the cartridge that tells the printer when it's low. The part can be found on sites that sell refill kits.

Why is my printer not printing right

This sounds like the chip on the ink cartrige, try cleaning the chip or replacing the red magenta ink. How a printer works, information from the Dynamic Link Libary is sent to the printer driver, this information is where to print on the paper and what colour to print, ie turning the ink jets on and off, the depth of colour comes from each ink by mixing the inks from the information in the photo or text. All ink problems are usually from ink faults, miss printing comes from driver information. Phill

My Lexmark printer 1270 only prints in black and white although the colour cartriges have good ink levals. This has just started happening, it was happily printing in colour not long ago. Many thanks.

Jast go to print option. Then Mantainance. Then try to print a nozzale. If all the colour comes out properly ( with out dot or misline), your cartrige head is goog for print. If not, your printer cartrige head is block. To reque from the problem follow the proces:
1. Unpluge colour cartrige.
2. Try to clean the cartrige head with soft cloth and amonia gentaly.
3. Try to out the ink through the head nozzale pore by using shaking or gentaly swape by soft tissue.
4. Now put the cratrige head upon a soft tissue. ( ink will comes out). If not, repit stage 1-4 until ink come out.
Thank you

Cartridge problem

Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
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.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Black ink not printing properly

This could be a driver problem. Could you uninstall the driver and reinstall it. go into the printer and faxes and delete your printer and reinstall it if you have the origional install disk. Otherwise go on to the internet and download the driver from the makers site first before you uninstall it. You may have delete a part of the driver by mistake or maybe it got corrupt.

. Otherwise there could be a problem with the printer itself.

Try it and see how you get on
