Printer Ink Cartridges

I own a Lexmark "all-in-one" printer/scanner, # X1240. I'm having difficulty locating ink cartridges for this model......I've checked Target and Wal-Mart! After printing an item last night, I was going to order them thru Lexmark, but could not even find # X1240!!! There IS a # X1270, but not 1240.

HELP!!!

Hi,

I understand not all the same series of printer models have used the same cartridges. Better to check with Lexmark company's website or authorized service center. I'll try to check myself also I could with my old college friend working in Lexmark but not 100% due to territory model production while am living in Asia, Philippines.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

How to replace the ink cartridge


1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.


2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.


3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.


4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.


5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

Printer do not recognise color catrige


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Lexmark Ink Cartridge Issue


Ink cartridges do have a shelf life - usually about two years from manufacturing, but it's more likely that the nozzles have become dry or clogged as result of disuse. You may get things corrected by putting regular rubbing alcohol on a clean soft cloth and gently wiping the contact points between the printer and the cartridge. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to replace the cartridges.

Need to change the ink cartridge on lexmark model #x2350


1- Turn the printer on by pressing the power button. Usually, the power button is located on top of the Lexmark printer. If the Lexmark printer does not power on immediately, then hold the button down for a few seconds before releasing it. Once the Lexmark printer has powered on, the installed cartridges will begin to move back and forth for a few minutes.
2- Raise the Lexmark printer cover up towards you. Doing this will give you instant access to the inside components of the Lexmark printer. Lift the cartridge release lever and remove any installed ink cartridges. Be careful when doing this because the ink may leak out. It's best to have a disposable bag or paper towel near you when performing these steps 3- Remove the plastic from the brand new cartridges by carefully cutting them open with scissors or tearing along the perforated edges. Once you have removed the plastic, there's a yellow tag located near the bottom of the ink cartridge. Take this tag off only when you're ready to insert the ink cartridges into the slots.
4- Tear the yellow tag from the ink cartridges and place them into their corresponding slots. Each one will be easily identified by its color. The cartridge release lever will have the same color as the ink cartridge. If you mistakenly place the cartridges in the wrong slot, then you'll risk having your Lexmark printer stop working properly.
5- Press the ink cartridges into the slots and listen for a clicking noise after the insertion. Although you will need to firmly place the ink cartridges into the available slots, it still needs to be done gently. Close the Lexmark printer cover when you’ve completed the previous steps. Wait a few minutes for the Lexmark printer to recognize that you have inserted brand new ink cartridges. After a few seconds, it will go through some diagnostic steps to make sure the ink cartridges were correctly inserted.
6- Print a test page on your Lexmark printer. This will help you to determine if the ink cartridges are properly working. You can view the newly printed images and text after the Lexmark printer has finished printing. Get rid of your used ink cartridges by throwing them away or sending them to an online store that accepts empty ink cartridges.

Printer wont print, but it is going through the motions.


If ink cartridges are new, perform print head or maintenance cleaning at least 3x consecutively.

All in one printer does not scan or copy


If the Ink Status is showing a ? symbol after you have replaced the tanks, you just need to tell the printer that you replaced tanks ,

To do that , open your lexmark solution centre from the Lexmark start menu group.
