Glad you included the comment that it has sat for 6 months.
1 of 2 things.
The cartridges them self may have dried out. Ink jet print cartridges do have an expiration date, and without use they can just stop working.
The second thing, and pretty much related to not being used, is the area under the cartridges can get very gooey when the sit for a while.
You can clean that out, if you carefully do this. UNPLUG the machine ,, remove the cartridges,, place some paper towels under the print head. Below the where the cartridges go, and trickle some alcohol in that area to disolve the dried out ink.
So, either replacing the cartridges or cleaning out the dried ink under them should fix it up for you.

My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.

My Lexmark X1270 printer at one time worked, everything was good, then when I put a new color to black will not print any other color or a black color, print only a little pale, almost do not see anything...


Lexmark products work best with genuine supplies. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, remanufactured, or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
You can try to clean your cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer. From your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X1200 Series folder > select Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that does not help, maybe it would be best to replace your supplies with genuine cartridges.
I hope this helps.

I lost my manual for my lexmark x1270 all in one printer.Can you tell me in what order is the ink cartridges placed.Black first or color first?


Here's the link to download the Lexmark X1270 setup sheet: http://bit.ly/9PWpTr. Actually, it doesn't matter what goes in first as long as you have the right cartridges installed. Black cartridges for X1270 are #16 and #17, and color cartridges are #26 and #27.

Black will not print properly


your cartridge is about 100 pages of ink. Try to buy #16 black and #26 color for best results and economy, since #16 have about 250 pages resource.

Lexmark x1270 poor printing


Try these steps after these if you face the same problem then you need to get the cart exchanged as it may be defective as Lexmark cart comes with 6 months warranty ...

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
