I have Lexmark X125 and get message "Check Cartride" I put a new Black Cartride in and get message " None Changed" Printer won't print. What can I do?


What is the black cartridge version that you are using on your Lexmark X125 printer? If you are inserting a photo cartridge on your printer, please follow these steps: 1. Remove the black cartridge and insert the photo cartridge. The printer LCD screen will display CARTRIDGE? NONE CHANGED. 2. Press the Options button to select NEW RIGHT and then press Start. The printer LCD screen will now display RIGHT CARTRIDGE? 3. Use the Options button to select the STD PHOTO cartridge type and click Start. An Alignment page will then print. When the Alignment page is fully printed, the LCD screen will display CARTRIDGE ALIGN. 15 [00-30] A , where - 15 represents the straightest line on the page; - [00-30] is the value range you can select from, between 00 and 30 - A represents the line in each section. 4. Use the numbers on the keypad to select the number of the line you think is the straightest. As you press the number, the LCD will change to the next line automatically. Select the number representing the straightest line in each section.

    Replacing the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif
    1. Turn on the HP PSC and lower the print-carriage access door.
      The print carriage will move into the access area. Figure 1: Opening the print-carriage access door
      c00034850.jpg
    2. After the carriage stops moving, push down on the top of the print cartridge to release it, and then pull it toward you out of the slot.
        NOTE: The black cartridge is on the right side of the print carriage.
      Figure 2: Removing the print cartridge
      c00034851.jpg
        NOTE: It is normal to see ink buildup in the print cartridge slots.

    3. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging and gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
        CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles. Install the cartridge immediately upon removing the tape to prevent ink from drying in the nozzles.
      Figure 3: Removing the plastic tape
      c00034852.jpg
    4. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot at a slight angle, until it clicks into place.
        CAUTION: Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot. It must slide in at a slight angle.
      Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge
      c00034853.jpg
    5. Close the print-carriage access door.


    Using a photo print cartridgegtabtop.gif To use the photo print cartridge, remove the black print cartridge and insert the photo print cartridge in its place.
    The photo print cartridge can be purchased separately and will optimize the quality of printed photos.
    With the tri-color print cartridge and photo print cartridge installed, you have a six-ink system, which provides enhanced quality photos. For printing regular text documents, use the black print cartridge.
    Use a print cartridge protector to keep either print cartridge secure when it is not being used. Figure 5: Storing the print cartridge

    Aligning the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif After installing or replacing a print cartridge, the HP PSC will automatically print a cartridge alignment page.
    1. Place the alignment page face down on the left front corner of the glass with the top of the page facing the left side.
    2. Press Scan .
      The HP PSC will align the print cartridges. During the alignment the button LED will blink until the alignment is complete.
