Lexmark X1185 printer will not print color......everything else works fine

My Lexmark X1185 printer will not print in color. It prints in black and white, but when I ask it to print color, it feeds the paper, even sounds like its printing, but the page is blank. I've changed print cartridges, but still no color.

The ink is clogged not the cartridge but were the ink feeds into the printer. there should be a cleaner tab in the printer preference tab if available

If the ink cartridge is not empty it is probably clogged. The Print nozzles are very sensitive and cleaning attempts can make the situation even worse if carried out wrong. You can try cleaning with dry gas alcohol as it contains no water. Use a piece of leather sham or other non lint material like eyeglass lens cleaner wipes and the dry gas. Wet your cloth and gently hold it on the print nozzles allowing the alcohol to dissolve the dried ink in the nozzles. Do not rub hard or you will ruin the print head. Hold it in place for at least 2 minutes with a generous amount of alcohol in the cloth. Imm
ediately place the cartridge in the printer and perfom the clean nozzle function.
If this does not remedy your problem the print cartridge must be replaced. Hope this helps you out.
