    did nothing to the printer, but it says remove and check the left cartridge.

    left = color - and it may be empty, but still should NOT do this ****.

    Also, HP SHOULD let us use ONLY the 'black' cartridge, which is one of the print options, but no, it is ****-WARE, because it forces you to have both cartridges full and in place - that is bloody stupid. If I only HAVE a black cartridge, then I should be able to run the printer and print only from that cartridge. What a joke.

    It says "remove and check left cartridge" I put a new one in and it still says the same thing. I am stuck.

    Is this a new or old cartridge?

    If it is new, please check that the protective tape has been removed which protects the nozzles (bottom of cartridge) and electrical pads (back side of cartridge).

    Also make sure that there is no dirt or other obstruction between the electrical pads (gold coloured dots) and the matching pins inside the printer.

My x5495 black and color cartridges are not printing. they have ink in them, but will not print. have cleaned cartridges and still will not work.


Try this approach:
  1. When you're on Copy mode, press the Menu button on the printer operator panel.
  2. Press left/right button until Tools is selected on the screen.
  3. Press check.
  4. Choose Maintenance.
  5. Press left/right button until Clean Cartridges is selected on the screen.
  6. Press check.
Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. After the page is printed, try to print your document/file again to verify if problem is resolved.
You may also try to reseat the cartridges by removing both cartridges from your printer > close the printer cover > unplug/re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, firmly re-insert the cartridges. Try to print again.
If that doesn't help, try to insert different known working cartridges.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Welcome to Fixya

This means the the printer cannot determine which cartridge is causing the error. Make sure that you are using original HP cartridges.

Please see troubleshooting procedure below:
  1. Remove the color cartridge from the left stall (which has a blue latch) and refasten the latch. Leave the other cartridge in place.
  2. Close the printer, wait 10 to 15 seconds, then look at the LCD display.
    • If the LCD display reads Insert Color Cartridge in Left Stall , the color cartridge may be causing the problem. Follow the steps below:
      1. Clean the color cartridge contacts. Click here to see how.
      2. Reinsert the color cartridge into the carriage and close the blue latch.
      3. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.
      4. If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , replace the color cartridge.
    • If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , follow the steps below:
      1. Reinsert the color cartridge.
      2. Remove the black or photo cartridge, depending on which one is installed in the right stall. The right stall has the gray latch. Be sure to refasten the latch on the empty stall.
      3. Clean the black or photo cartridge contacts.
      4. Reinsert the black or photo cartridge.
      5. Close the printer and wait 10 to 15 seconds.
      6. If the LCD display reads Remove and Check Print Cartridges , replace the black or photo cartridge.

Print cartridge

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Cyan or yellow ink cartridge light stays on. Can not print.


I had this problem after I ran a print cartridge out of ink on my HP business inkjet 1200. The Print color light stayed on solid, and would not print.  After much frustration and trying many other things, I purged the air from the print cartridge pump, and that cleared the problem. To get rid of the air (which I could see through the translucent wall of the pump) I inserted a syringe needle (without the syringe) into the nozzle of the cartridge, and expelled some ink with the air. This is messy, so I recommend gloves. I have been refilling my cartridges for years.

The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge


There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.
