Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My printer Lexmark x5470 just started to print horizontal black solid bars
1/8'' thick and 1/8'' apart, covering what is being printed. It looks like I'm trying to block out what I try to print
The problem with the printer could be due to two things the first one could be a print quality issue. Here is a link where you can find very good details on how to clean the printhead and cartridges. http://bit.ly/amSQwY
The second problem could be software related which I don't think could be the problem with your printer but if the print quality does not work then this is worth a try. Just uninstall all the Lexmark Software completly restart the PC, download the latest driver from the lexmark website and it should be good to go.

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer
cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you
printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where
the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer
turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document
again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print
cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues
with your model:
From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print
If that doesn't help, please visit the Lexmark website to update your Lexmark X5470 printer driver. Select your operating sytem > click on FILTER > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation. Then try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.
