That is the most likely cause.
Also under the cartridges, there are some ports and pads that may have dried out. In that case unplug the machine, and remove the cartridges, trickle some alcohol slowly to dissolve the sticky ink in that area. Place some paper towels under the print head area as you trickle in the alcoholl and allow it to drip into those towels. Then allow some time to dry.
The cartridges and those port areas can dry out or become very tacky.

Dear Freddie ,
you are right the ink of your printer is dryed , you can do one thing , just plug out the ink cartridege from the printer and shake well then install again . i hope this will work .

Because some times if printer is not in use for a longtime then the HEAD of cartridege comes dry if you try it again then it will work.

Takecare

I have a lexmark z715 printer connected to windows xp. recently it stopped printing. the paper moves and the machine makes sounds similar to printing, but it doesn't print. i think the sound is s


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

I installed the Lexmark z715 printer driver on my Mac and it is connected fine, but when you attempt to print documents, it prints blank pages instead. The ink cartridges are brand new. Please help me...


Ok, you need to clean the print heads they are probally clogged, what operating system are you using on your computer? I can walk you thru on what to do, very simple, if you have windows xp, do this: Go to start then all programs then go to your printer, there should be an option to align paper, clean print heads, print test page, you need to pick clean print heads, then after that print a test page, then if you see something printed but not good qaulity, clean print heads again....if this doesn't work you can take a damp cloth and wet and wipe under the ink cartilige where the ink comes out but is dried and clogged up until you see a rainbow streak of red, blue and yellow, be carefully not to wet any other part of cartirige, you can use a moist q tip if you want.

Do I need a color cartridge to print in black ink


the paper was black or blank? i think you mean blank, the ink will dry out over time replacing the cartridges will most likely solve the problem, or for the cost of the two cartridges u may want to consider a new cheap printer.

Lexmark Z715 will not print but computer says it is printing


The Z715 needs a #50 black ink cartridge and a working color cartridge to print. To check if there ios ink coming out of your black or color cartridge touch the bottom of it to a paper towel and if you see a solid black blob or 3 blobs of Yellow, blue and red for the color then your problem is else where. If U are printing stuff from the internet sometimes the printer will try to use the color cartridge to print this so even though the black is working it comes out blank if the color is dry

Blank printout


If you are able to drag out your users manual, most lazer printers have a self cleaning process for the head, which takes around 3-5 minutes to complete, after that try to run a test page to ensure the colors are working fine.

Failing that, unless the printer is brand new, and or unless it has been sitting ( unused - regardless of age ) the print heads can dry out leaving a blockage ... hence, no ink, hence blank page.

The only other suggestion after running a Print head clean, would be to replace or refill the ink cartridges.
