Hi
There is a place in your driver when you go to print a docs there are some tabs there which will have Tools Tab you can clean heads from there, if heads not clean then try some tricks I used

Here.

Ok it got to be the heads blockage
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

My ink cartridges are full but when I print something it does not print blue or green. What can I do?


Assuming you've recently changed your ink cartridges the first thing you can try is seeing if you've placed the cartridges properly (did you remove all the plastic covering the cartridge so the ink can flow into the printer?)

If you haven't actually changed your cartridges in a while the printer might be registering the wrong ink levels. This will result in your cartridges not being as full as you think.

Another thing you could try is checking the printer head for anything that's keeping the ink from flowing. By printer head I mean the thingy that houses your ink cartridges. Perhaps there's some old dried up ink blocking the way?

Lexmark X5470 is not printing but the software thinks the printing is complete. What's wrong?


It could be that your cartridges need some cleaning. From the printer operator panel, while on Copy mode, press the Menu button > Tools > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them from possible clogs and dirt.
If that doesn't help, try to re-seat your cartridges into the printer. You may also replace your cartridge with a different known working cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

You can gave it a good clean out try.
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Lexmark Z600 ONLY print test pages


Seemes very daft, and sounds like a twit, but not really.

When I recieved the new cartridge I placed it in the correct cartridge retainer in the printer matching up the dark green colour of the cartridge and the top clip, and it printed nothing even after a tryed re-seating it.
So I placed it in the other thinking maybe I somehow might have placed it in the wrong slot, so I placed it in the other (Colour), and set that up as I did the other, and it printed a blurred page but then stopped printing.
After that I then placed it back in the other cartridge retainer, set it up as the previous times when it did not work, and then it worked.

Seems strange and simple, but it did not work the first time at all, and after faffing with it finally did.

This might help someone, and then again might not.

Blurred bands in prints


Try changing ink cartridge. Print only "grayscale" and if that happens, you need a black cartridge changed. If, not color
