Question about Lexmark X6170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark X6170 I replaced the color cartridge (which I thought was empty) but now it seems like the carriage is jacked up. It keeps telling me to remove the tape from the cartridge. Any ideas?

    Sorry to bother you folks. I am a moron. It turns out that if you want color ink you shouldn't install a black cartridge in the carriage. Thanks for your support.

Hi,

You can try the following,
  • Take out the color cartridge, you will see golden points at the back of it
  • Use soft lint free cloth to clean the points
  • You will also see some golden points on the carriage, where the cartridges are placed
  • Clean the circuit points on carriage with a soft lint free cloth
  • Place the cartridge back and try to print
  • If it still don't work, you can try replacing the cartridge
Causes: Dirty contact points (Golden circuit points), Carriage gone bad, Cartridge gone bad

Regards,
Shrey

I am unable to find color ink for my lexmark x6170. Additionally, are all the inks the same (quality)?


Lexmark X6170 uses these two ink cartridges: -
Black Print Cartridge (18L0032E)
Colour Print Cartridge (18LX042E)
It is highly recommended that you use the original cartridges as the cartridges and ink vary from printer to printer.
However, if you are unable to find the cartridges, you may look for refilling option.

The error is telling you that the color or black cartridge is missing. It's not recognizing one of your cartridges, most probably the new black cartridge. Here's a link to the Lexmark website to guide you on what to do with that problem. http://bit.ly/bkCWPF

Color cartridge is new. quality is poor. Have


make sure the cartridge is firmly seated in the carriage. If so you may just have a defective cartridge. Return it to Walmart and exchange it as a defective cartridge otherwise.

"color cartridge missing"


Try cleaning the contacts on both the color ink cartridge and the carriage with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. It nothing works, the color ink cartridge is likely faulty.

Lexmark X6170 printer shows hardware error 0502 when printing


On the multi function machine there seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe this rod with a kleenex and the problem seems to go away. Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error.
You may have to do this from time to time if the error keep reoccurring.

Error C50 on Lexmark X6170 printer


The ultimate permanent fix for the x6170 printer would be to purchase new cartridge snap-down levers (the levers that snap down inside the dell printer to hold the cartridges, blue for color and black for black). If you purchase snap down levers for a Lexmark printer series X5100 or X6100 or Z55 or Z65, the little guide peg inside the snap lever would work with an unmodified 83 and 82 Lexmark cartridge. All Lexmark did for Dell to make the Dell unique, was to put special Dell snap levers on the printer. I considered breaking off the little guide peg on the snap lever, but decided against it as it appears to help hold the cartridge in alignment
