It is highly impossible for two of the same brand, exact same product, to have the exact same problem! Lexmark has sold these defective all in one printers and is not offering any assistance to the people that purchased them! My printer is saying "Clear the carrier jam and then press the START * to continue" I not be the smartest person, but I know that this has happened to plenty more people

you may check your only black ink cartridge

longer time less using cause ink chanel(holes) dryer, could not print out even refilled.you may take out the ink cartridge and put it's surface of bottom (just touch ) in the clean water 1 -2 Hrs, then set back and test it. still not fixed, you also need to do same thing if your print head is separated from your ink cartridge

Lexmark 3600-4600 stops at 34% when trying to print a test page. Color ink is low, but I only want black in any event.


If your color ink is already empty or not substantial for printing, then you must replace it with a new cartridge. The Lexmark printer will continue to print when there's substantial ink in the cartridges.
If you prefer to print in black and white as your default print setting, please follow the steps below: (make sure your black and color cartridges ink levels are good)

For Windows OS:

1. Go to Control Panel.

2. Open Printers and Faxes.

3. Right-click on Lexmark 3600-4600 Series print object and click on Properties.

4. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window, go to Advanced tab. Click on Printing Defaults.

5. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Printing Preferences window, under Ink Use, select Print using black ink only. Click OK.

6. Click OK button in the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window to save the changes.


Your printer will print in black and white draft mode the next time you send a print job to the printer.


For Mac OS:


1. With the file (you wish to print) open, go to Print. A window will pop up.

2. Select the Lexmark printer.

3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media.

4. Under Paper tab, select Print in Black and White.

5. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).



Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.

Can't print black and white only with Lexmark 2600!


Hi MikeC,

Most of the time this is due to the black cartridge being out of ink. The Lexmark uses all the colors to create black when the black ink cartridge runs out, but won't let you print black because it is essentially saving ink.

Hope that's the reason and it isn't the printer failing. Good luck! :)

In the printing preferences you need to select Black and white.

1. open the document you want to print
2. click file
3. click print
4. select printer from list, then click on preferences
5. look around the pages.

In Color tab I found a print in Grayscale - this setting will print the document in black and white colors, the pages may be diffrent on diffrent printers. look for black and white setting or Grayscale.

picture: printing preferences, color page on a hp printer, select grayscale with black cartridge only.

Ink cartridge


If you have a 3470, you need a #1 cartridge. If you have a 3480, you need a #2 cartridge. If it is a 3400 series, there is only one cartridge. It lets you print both in color and in black.
