Lexmark x7550 Printer, Scanner, Fax - Clicking Noise Question

When my printer comes out of energy saving mode and the printer aligns the cartridges and gets ready to print, before doing so......this rapid clicking noise is made. This clicking noise is loud and very rapid. After it is done....my printer works just fine.

This problem started after I installed new ink cartridges....everything prints fine...so can't figure this out. Need help!

I have read a lot in the last hour about clicking noises with the lexmark printers, scanner, fax.

Thanks,
Terry

I could see no piece of loose rubber on the feeder wheels that guide the paper through for copying. The clicking is coming directly from that area. So for now....I just open the top of my printer where I scan pictures....and then copy from there.

Top feeder for the scanner (on my x6570) had a loose piece of rubber stuck between the feed wheels. The rubber is part of the guiding mechanism that guides the paper to the feed wheels. Remove rubber strip and reattach it where it belongs.

My x7550 wont print pictures.....says its printing and ink level goes down, but photo paper comes out blank


It could be that your cartridges need some cleaning. From the printer operator panel, scroll to the Maintenance menu and select Clean Cartridges. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridges nozzles and clean them.
After doing the clean cartridge function, try to print another photo to determine if the problem is fixed.
Hope this helps.

Where can i find parts for lexmark x7550


If the "clip" or the cartridge latch on your printer has broken, I'm afraid there's no replacement for that part.

Wont see new cartidges


hello,
Check whether you installed the cartridges correctly.
Turn off the printer and open the cartridge compartment.Make sure:-
  • The black cartridge goes to the left carrier.
  • The color cartridge goes to the the right carrier
  • The transparent paper at the bottom of the cartridges is removed before installing them.
  • The cartridges are securely fixed.
  • The scanner unit is closed after installing cartridges.
Hope this helps.Thanks!

Had the cartridge filled instead of buying a new one. I was told at costco that the printer sometimes shows low ink when it's filled to check the manual there is an option that needs to be changed. I...


Some menus on the X8310 and X8350 are repeated in the Copy Mode, Scan Mode, Fax Mode and Photo Card menus.
If you press the Menu button while in any of the above menus, two ancillary menus will be listed, Maintenance and Device Defaults.
To select either of these menus, press the check mark pattlnk_442006_155-selects.gif at the center of the navigation keys on the printer.

The ink levels should reset when the ink jet cartridge is installed

Another thing which is mentioned at their support site is quote:
If you have refilled the cartridges you got along with the printer, you can't reset them. 23 and 24 are not meant to be refilled. They are what Lexmark call "return program cartridges"- they can't be refilled, you can send them back to Lexmark ( that's why they are called "return cartridges"). You need to buy either 23A and 24A or 34 and 35, those cartridges are refillable.
Here is a link to Lexmark, with a list of cartridge compatibility for your printer:

I have refilled the ink cartridge on my lexmark x7550, but it does not register, why?


Hi there

Lexmarks not work when you refill the cartridges up. they have a fuse inside the cartridges that blow when they go low, this is down to Lexmark not let them refill so you have to buy there inks.

Bold lines on Fax and Scan


A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below: 
1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.  2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks."  Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page. 
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps. 
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below: 
1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.  2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.  3. Get a damp paper towel.  4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.  5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.  6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.  7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.  8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."  9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.
