The fact the other cartridges print ok, but that one does not suggests.. (i hope you dont get offended0 but i have sen a million times.. people dont see the tiny clear peice of tape they put over the nozzle on new cartridges, which wuld prevent it printing.. if you have removed all tape ect ect it may just need a head clean, you can do this yourself by removing the cartridges, and the print head, and simply pouring boiled water through the nozzles.. or you can get a bottle of god old fashioned nozzle rocket (NZR) and pour that slowly through the nozzles to remove blockages.. if the print head isnt removable.. remove the print cartridges, put about a cap full of boiled water or NZR on the nozzles, then do a head clean, do this over until it starts to print all colors

hope this helps

Try reinstalling the printer drivers and software, sometimes the printer does not communicate with your PC properly.

Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.

Good luck.

Try to reset your printer it might fixed your problems:
To reset your device do the following steps.

While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
Try printing again. I think it will help you.


Thanks

LEXMARK X75 BLACK INK STOPPED PRINTING.


When was the last time you changed the black ink on the printer? If it's been a while then I would suggest you change it. If you recently have changed it then you can try pulling the cartridge out of the printer and giving it a small shake. Put the cartridge back in and run an alignment operation on the printer. You can do that through the printer utilities installed on your computer.

Printer won't work


Norma930,
Try cleaning the Print Head (a function you should find within your printers properties). Don't do it if you have already done so since replacing the cartridge as the process uses quite a bit of ink.
Good luck.

Hi,

Just to confirm pls:
1. the new print cartridges are original HP inks;
2. you have remove the bright pink tape from the ink cartridges;
3. the black is on the right side and the color is on the left side.

You can try removing both cartridges and clean the gold colored contacts where the pink tape was. Pls do the same to the mate pins in the cartridge holder in the printer.

Try again. If this does not be corrective, you may need to change inks again.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The cartridge needs cleaning. There are several things you can try. Using a wet paper towel, you can wipe the gold portion of the cartridge to try and draw out ink, or you can dunk the entire cartridge in warm water for a couple minutes or so (I have done this with success). The process is more clearly explained here:
