Resetting the Ink Counter When an ink tank is replaced, the ink counter must be reset. The low ink warning is only displayed properly if the ink counter is reset.
Message Prompting Confirmation of Ink Tank Replacement If an ink tank is removed, the printer will output a message prompting you to confirm replacement of the ink tank at the start of the next print job. When an ink tank has been replaced, follow the procedure below to reset the ink counter. The low ink warning is only displayed properly if the ink counter is reset. Important If infrared communication is performed in Windows XP or Windows 2000, the printer will not output the message asking for confirmation of ink tank replacement. Reset the ink counter from the printer driver when you replace the ink tank.
1 Check the message, and click Yes.
Note Mistakenly clicking No instead, will prevent the low ink warning from functioning properly. If this happens, be sure to open the driver's Properties dialog box and manually reset the ink tank counter in the Maintenance tab.
2 Select the replaced ink tank, and click OK. The dialog box allows you to select the replaced ink tank. When both black and color ink tanks have been replaced, select both Black and Color. If you have not replaced the ink tank with a new one, click Cancel.

I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.
Just make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, remanufactured or clone cartridges, you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
Try cleaning the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software installed on your computer instead: 1. On your computer, go to Start menu.2. Go to Programs.3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.5. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean it from dirt and possible clogs. If that doesn't help but you're using genuine Lexmark supplies, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance, otherwise, please replace your color cartridge with a genuine one.
Try to re-insert the color cartridge into the printer and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print nozzles. Please follow the steps below:
1. Press Copy.
2. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display.
3. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display.
4. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
5. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
Make sure you are inserting the correct color cartridge versions for the Lexmark X1150 (either #26 or #27). Try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center, click Start > Programs > Lexmark X1100 Series > Lexmark X1100 Series Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page that will help clean the nozzles from possible dirt and clogs. If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working cartridge (e.g. your old cartridge or another new cartridge). It could be a faulty cartridge issue.
that is because ur head of ur printing cartridge is damaged.
remove ur cartridges black as well as color
n install only black cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur black cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of black cartridge is damaged
after this process remove the black one cartridge and install the color one cartridge n check d blinking of lights on ur printer if it doesn't blinks it's mean ur color cartridge is OK but ur blinking of light on ur printer is same it's mean ur head of color cartridge is damaged
now take a dry cotton cloth n gently clean ur cartridges head
install both cartridges on ur printer n check ur blinking light on ur printer
that will work only if u r too lucky other wise u have to purchase a one cartridge.
Make certain that the cover is off the jets - if you forgot to pull the strip off or it broke leaving part of the tape on the cartridge, it won't work. Try to do a clean process on the cartridge. If that doesn't work, and you don't have another printer to try the cartridge in, return it to the place you bought it and get another new one. If the printer is printing pink, the color cartridge is probably empty also so that it cannot make black from the other colors. These sound like refilled cartridges - OEMs would have failed with some form of error code or warning.

hi, it is possible that the black cart was not installed properly. Try reseating the black cart and see if it works. You can also try to calibrate the printer. you can do this by pressing the menu button then go down to calibrate printer. after that it would also help to perform a deep clean which can also be found on that same menu. then try to print. If all these fails, try to call the kodak hotline 800.421.6699
