Right catridge not correct


Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge versions for your Lexmark X5470 printer. Color cartridges compatible for your model are #33 and #35.
Try to re-insert the right cartridge into the printer. If that doesn't help, remove the right cartridge from your printer again. Close the printer cover. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. When the printer turns on, re-insert your right cartridge. Close the printer cover and check for any errors. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to do the Clean Cartridge function from the printer operator panel. On Copy mode, press the Menu button > select Tools > select Maintenance > select Clean Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the error still appears on the display screen, you probably have a faulty cartridge. Please replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

Please help, the Power light is blinking green rather that just solid and nothing will print. When I open the cartridge door the ink carriage is in the middle rather that to the right as it usually is....


Sounds like it is trying to tell you to change the ink cartridge as that is where the cartridge parks for changing? My printer blinks green when it needs paper, does yours have paper and is it inserted properly? Have you checked for a paper jam?

The clue will be in the manual's troubleshooting pages.

Modern printers have a chip on the cartridge itself and these can sometimes give wrong information to the printer..

My hp deskjet f4140 keeps showing a paper jam and won't print the page I need, there isn't a paper jam.


There is probably a problem with the position of the cartridge carriage. Try reinstalling the cartridge and make sure that the carriage is in the center of the cartridge access area and the center of the cartridge assembly bar. If it is not try moving the cartridge assembly in either direction and restore the printer for printing. Note any sounds as the cartridge attempts to go to its home position. Any grinding noise may indicate that the position of the cartridge needs to be adjusted. Be patient and adjust the cartridge position again until no grinding sounds are heard. It may help to unplug the printer for 30 seconds between adjustments. Good Luck!

Printer wont print


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.


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
