It seems there is a possibility of a problem with the printer itself, or perhaps the cartridges. You should first self-test the printer. Since we are unsure where the problem exists, we must do eliminative troubleshooting to rule out parts of the printing system. The self-test allows us to rule out software and the cable by testing the hardware by itself. Please note that this is not a "fix," but rather a diagnostic test to determine if your hardware is at fault.
Please begin by disconnecting the power supply from the wall (not the back of the printer) for at least "30 seconds." Then plug the printer back in.
Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Power the printer off.
2. Press and hold the "Paper Feed" button.
3. While still holding the "Paper Feed" button, press and release the "Power" button. Continue holding the "Paper Feed" button.
4. When the printer starts pulling paper, release the "Paper Feed" button. It should print a test page at this point.
5. Power the printer off, as this test is continuous.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, please try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only a color cartridge installed (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed). If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.
If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues - we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault. The issue may be a communication problem, or perhaps a software conflict.

Error message print cartridge missing


Does this happen with every cartridge you install ?
I've seen this problem before with several brands of printers, it's usually a sensor issue connected to a fairly flimsy 'ribbon' wire. Either the wire (ribbon) has come loose or the sensor has failed. Hopefully this isn't your issue as the cost of repair is usually more than the cost of a new printer.

Try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Launch the application from All Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series Printer > Tools > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal lines. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Once done, try to print again and check if black is printing properly now. If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the other is fautly.

Try to reseat your cartridges. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset itself. If that doesn't help, try to clean your cartridges and check if print quality improves. If you're using Windows, go to Start -> Programs -> Lexmark X74-X75 -> Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center -> Maintenance -> Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks.

I have a new black cartridge, butwhen I try to print it states faulty cartridge, can you help please



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. 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

Lexmark x1290 all in one. how do i clean the pritner jets ?


There are a few things you can try. First run the printers cleaning software that was installed.
In a windows XP operating system, Click the start button, than slide to and click on Printers and Faxes. Your default printer will have a check mark to the right of the printer icon. Right click on that icon. A pop-up window will open, slide down and left click on "Properties". Than click on "Printing Preferences". Next, Click on the "Services Tab". Than, click "Service this device". You should be able to run the, "Clean the Print Cartridges". After the printer finishes cleaning, print a test page. If this helped but not enough than manually clean the ink cartridge' (s). Remove one ink cartridge and lay it onto a few paper towels. Take a clean lint free cloth and dampen it with some water. With the print heads facing down slide it across the dampen cloth a couple of times. Now clean out the ink carriage. Dampen some cotton swabs and clean the inside of the carriage. Use dry cotton swabs to dry the carriage. When you look into the carriage you'll find a copper plate with dimples. Use a drop or two of house hold alcohol and wipe the surface of the copper. Re-insert your ink cartridge. Repeat for the other cartridge and carriage.
Water breaks down any dried ink. The alcohol removes oils. Below is a link to Lexmark;

Alway keep your printer openings covered.

Good luck!
