Question about Barebone Systems

My X6100 series printer is not working properly. I put in a new black cartridge and find that the alignment of the cartridge carrier is not lined up properly. When I send to printl, it prints only two thirds on page and bangs on other side. What can I do to rectify this?

Sounds like your printer has a major mechanical problem. You can try doing an alignment using the printer software. I don't think it will solve all your troubles, but is the first thing to try. In any case here is the link to all the library provided by lexmark for your printer.

Cheers

If you have an instruction manual, it will give you directions about how to align the printer.
You can access the driver program in your computer.
There should be an icon on the desktop or go to the start menu and chose the program for your printer from there.
You will see when you bring up the program, how to troubleshoot and tweek it.

I no longer have my manual, how do I change the ink cartridges for the HP Officejet 6300 all-in-one?


To replace the print cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.
Caution If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door
to access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the
cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print
cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove
them.
2. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.
3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a
print cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the
slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge
from the slot on the right.
4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
5. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print
cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an
airtight plastic container.
If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the
print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many
countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge. For
more information, go to the following website:
www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/recycle/inkjet.html
6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch
only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the
upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
8. Close the print cartridge door
9. If you installed a new print cartridge, the print cartridge alignment process begins.
10. Make sure you have plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press OK.
11. The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print
cartridge alignment sheet.
12. Press OK.

Hi I have just inserted a new HP ink cartridge 94 into my HP PSC 2350, as the ink was running low. I was printing photos, which keept printing with a red line throughout the picture. After inserting the...


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.

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.

When printing black, the first page comes out in clear black, however subsequent pages are printed in red. In doing a second document the same thing occurs.


Be sure to update your printer drivers with the newest (correct) manufacturer's drivers.

Also, make sure when you print a document you are printing in greyscale. Otherwise, you're wasting your color cartridge. Speaking of which I would try another set of cartridges, and aligning them using the software that came with your printer. Your color cartridge could be malfunctioning.

I have a fine line across some of my printing. I am using and hp psc 1205 all in one printer. What could be the problem and how can I solve it.


Usually a line across your printing indicates a bad inkjet head. Luckily on HP printers the printer head is built into the inkjet cartridge. Have you replaced the cartridge? Does it do this on any color or a particular color?

My advise is to replace the cartridges and perform an alignment. If that doesnt fix it, it could be a bad board.

Have a problem loading cartridges for a C3100 All-in-One. They do no click into place, and the black cartridge is popping out after the door is closed.


Have you checked for any obstructions in the carriage? And I assume you are using the proper cartridge for the printer (92 for black and 93 for color)
