Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me:
(Applies to all printers)


  1. Click Start, Programs, Lexmark Series.
  2. Click Lexmark Control Panel.
  3. Click Print Cartridge installation.
  4. Depending on which cartridges you are using and which printer model you have, select Install Color Cartridge or Install Black Cartridge or Install Photo Cartridge.
  5. Carefully remove the tape covering the printhead of the print cartridge. Important: Be sure to remove all of the tape. Do not touch the copper area on the back of the cartridge.
  6. Insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge carrier.
  7. Push the cartridge back until it clicks into place.

    • If the print cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it is not locked into place. Repeat step 7.

  8. Click the appropriate Cartridge Installed option in the printer software.

    • If you choose to install a new print cartridge, you will be prompted to align your print cartridges. The printer will print a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. Follow these steps to align the cartridges:

      1. On the printed test page, locate the number under the Bi-directional Alignment pattern that comes closest to forming a straight line.
      2. Enter the number as the Bi-directional Alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge screen.
      3. Click OK.

  9. Close the front cover of the printer.

Alignment failed


It sounds like your print cartridge is not releasing any ink. Recommend you start with replacing that. It could be due to the ink jet being dried over or clogged.

HP ink jet 1200..prints only test page after replacing the yellow cartridge.test page only shows black and blue inks are good.need help.


Important thing: HP inkjet printers having self align technology & its aligns automatically after replacing the ink cartridge/s.In the process of align it will prints align page &it will read it on the model.
Suppose if you replaced yellow cartridge, as usually it will print align page, but if one or more cartridges not printing properly align will not completes. Results every time it will prints the align page when its switching on. Align will completes only when all cartridges/print heads are in healthy condition.. Check the alignpage find out which colors are not printing properly, replace it to over come from this issue. Now you decide what to do?..

All photos, when printed have stripes/bands, especially noticeable on blue sky. Any way to improve, or is that just a problem with the model?


Change the ink jet cartridge for the blue or other colors. Make sure you align the print heads through the printer control panel or 'service' area of the printer on the computer.

If changing the ink jet cartridges and aligning doesn't help, then the printer is at fault. Usually, though, servicing these two things will rectify things.

Good luck with this repair.

Dell 922 printer alignment problem after refilling cartridge


Sounds like the cartridge ink jets have dried up. Try running a cleaning on them to see if you can unclog them. If this fails to work try gently rubbing the ink jets with a Qtip and alcohol. If this doesn't work for you then you will need to purchase new cartridges.

Please check :-
Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has been removed. Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.

Then try and do a head clean and printer head alignment.

OfficeJet K60 All In One Problem:Aligning Cartridges


In the process of alignment there are two phases:

1. When the message comes to align the ink ..press ok and the page is printed out.

2. Once the page is printed then place the page on the scanner glass and tehn scan the same.

Follow these two steps in the same order and it will never give Align Ink Cart message again.

Yellow won't print with old or new cartridge


Some ink jets are differant. Some have an Ink jet cartridge system that has the print head on the cartridge itself. Others use a seperate print head. When you pull out the ink cartridge is there another small unit below the cartridge that you can pull out? If so that is the print head and you will need to replace it. Also make sure that you have taken off the tape off of the air pilot hole on the ink cartridge so it can work properly. www.tonerovernight.com

I have a Lexmark Z11 that sat unopened in the box for several years until it was given to me as an emergency printer. The black ink cartridge had been pilfered by the original owner ( he got several of the se printers on clearance for $15 each). I bought a remanufactures high capacity cartridge. It workef fine for the three days of printing I did last week (about 25-30 pages of resumes and reference letters). When I went to use it a week later, it goes through the motions of printing but no ink is put on the page. I ran the clean cartridge several times but still no ink. I tried the new still-in-the-box color cartridge and did get color on the page in the alignment trial, but it was faded and full of white lines. I figured the cartridge was just old. It could be the ink leaked out of the remanufactured cartridge, but when I gently blew on the air hole I got a small splat of ink. (I used to be a sales rep for Canon printers a dozen years ago and we were told to do that to see if the cartridge still had ink.) I deleted and reinstalled the printer, unplugged and replugged cable and power cord twice. The printer receives the command and goes through the motion of printing, but as I said, no ink is put on the page. I have come to the conclusion the perhaps the remanufactured cartridge is at fault and I should take it back for an exchange, Can I get your take on it - is it the cartridge or the printer? Thanks! -Kathleen Brockway
