Please note that the #2 cartridge is the starter cartridge and the after market cartridge is the #1 cartridge.
The Lexmark X2470 printer uses the #1 cartridge which prints both color and black accordingly. While printing black it uses processed black. Hence, to print color images in "Black Only," please follow the steps given below:
1. Click on "Start," "All Programs," "Lexmark X2470 printer" group and then "Lexmark Photo Editor." 2. Click on "File" and then "Open" to select the color image file. 3. Click on "Image," "Mode" and then select "Grayscale." 4. Click on "Print."
This will print the image in gray.

Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to
plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do
so. To fix a
fouled install: (1)
Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs (2)
Shutdown the computer (3)
Disconnect the printer from the USB port (4)
Restart the computer (5) Run
the Driver Installation software (6)
Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer (7) When
the software asks for the printer connect it and continue
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with

printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
