    I just bought this Lexmark x5495. I have not been able to use it because the black and white doesn't print. The color prints perfectly. I checked the cartridge-brand new and tape remove, properly installed on the left.

SOURCE: help - Black not printing

Try cleaning the contact points of the cartridge itself and the unit that holds the cartridge with alchol. If still not printing try nossle cleaning from your printer properties.

SOURCE: black ink will not print. Colours ok

Get a syringe, remove the needle, remove the ink cartridge and use the syringe to blow air GENTLY through the hole the cartridge connects to. Make sure you have a cleaning cloth to remove ink dislodged from pipe connected at the print head, do this gently to remove any obstruction and there should not be too much mess and can easily be cleaned up.

Printer only prints in black/white. have put new


It could be the print setting on your computer.
If you're using Windows, with your document open, go to File > Properties/Preferences. In the Print Setup tab, make sure to select "Print using all available ink" in the Ink Use section.
On Mac you can select Color in Print Setting in any expanded print dialog.

Replaced the colour cartridge with a photo one (both Lexmark) and the photo cartridge is not recognised and I'm only getting black and white printing


The photo cartridge goes in the black cartridge carrier. Keep the color cartridge in the color cartridge carrier to continue printing.

I have a lexmark z2320 inkjet printer the colour cartridge is empty should it still print the black is full


I'm not a computer geek at all, but I find the color cartridges always run out first. Try to change your printer settings so it will only print in black and white and so uses the black cartridge and not the color one. If the the color cartridge is empty, the page will not print correctly. It may print some of the black color only.
