Question about Lexmark P707 Photo Jetprinter InkJet

Won't print text

Hi, My P707 will not print any text either from a word doc or from a web page. It'll print things like links and underline but won't actually print the text. I've checked the inks and also cleaned the nozzles but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Won't print text

I have to disagree with the previous solution. I have a P707 and it can certainly print word documents etc. I think the problem is with the print heads. If your last cartidge ran out and then sat around for a while before you replaced it, it may be that the ink has dried on the heads and blocked them. If you have not recently changed cartridge then I'm unsure -- but certainly, the P707 is not exclusively a photo printer -- it can take a black cartridge and run off that alone.

Re: Won't print text

This is a photo printer. My regular printer will not print photos and if I am correct photo printers will not print regular documents. They are made for separate document types (ex. doc and jpeg). This is so the corporate winners can steal more money from the consumer. I am sure there are printers out there that do both, but your printer is specifically a photo printer. Ask a tech at Best Buy or Circuit City. Let me know what they say.

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....

I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

We have a new hp lasterjet 4015n. It will print two sided, but it won't flip up the back side. I have my driver set to duplex print and flip up, but it won't flip up. Is there some setting on the...

I assume that you attached the two-sided printing accessory (duplexer) to your product:

The duplexing has to be set in the printer's
Printing submenu


This item appears only when an optional duplexer is installed. Set

the value to ON to print on both sides (duplex) or OFF to print on

one side (simplex) of a sheet of paper.
The default setting is OFF.

Print on both sides (Duplex) Click Print on both sides. If you will bind the document along
the top edge, click Flip pages up.

How do I install an ink cartridge in a lexmark P707 printer

Perhaps the Lexmark P707 User's Guide will be able to help you. Just click on this link: Scroll to Replacing the print cartridges, Page 43, for instructions on how to install/replace the cartridges.
In some cases, the ink cartridge carrier won't position itself in the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the white tape in the middle inside the printer. The other end of it is connected to the carrier. Gently slide the carrier to the center. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Hope this helps.

Why won't my HP Photosmart C4400 printer print the full emails.


I would like you use HP Smart Web Printing utility which will resolve this issue. With this fast, free download, this enhancement to Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox improves upon IE and Firefox ability to print what you see on the web page. HP Smart Web Printing allows users to:
  • Select text and graphics easily from any web site and save a handy list of clips
  • Save paper by combining portions of numerous web pages
  • Preview and modify clips before printing
  • In addition, HP Smart Web Printing automatically fixes right-edge clipping, eliminating wasteful prints containing clipped pages or sparse lines of useless text (IE 6.0 only).

  • Please click on the link below to download it.

    keep rocking!
