Lexmark 2500 and turning off alignment

I like this printer but it wants to print an alignment page whenever it is low on ink and when I install new cartridges. This is very annoying (and uses a lot of ink)! Can I turn this feature off?

thanks

    Very annoying, it does it even when i don't change cartridges. i want to turn this **** off

  • Anonymous May 03, 2009

    I personally have been using an uncalibrated printer for over a year now (because I always dismiss the annoying message), and I have never had any issues.

    It IS stupid.

    It DOES need to go...(check my proof above; 1 1/2 years sans "calibration").

    I'm sure there is some sort of registry switch that would do it...

Nope..it's part of the reset for any printer..and a good idea, to ensure that you are working with a printer that is calibrated..

Why do I have to waste all my ink on an alignment page everytime I put in a new cartridge? Why can I wait to see if my printer needs to be aligned? Is there some way to turn this bothersome step off and...


The printer is designed to align the cartridges whenever it is re-inserted in the cartridge carrier. You can press the Cancel button to disregard the alignment funtion. However, Lexmark does not recommend this action. This is to ensure proper printing on the paper.

Do I NEED 2 ink cartridges on the Lexmark 2500. Never use the color ink. Installed new black cartridge, did the alignment and now printer won't let me print. Help


Yes you do need 2.
All ink cartridge bays has to be filled with a working cartridge, for the print driver to allow you to print. That is why I prefer single ink type printers, so it is not so expensive to maintain the inks you don't use.

  1. On your computer, go to "Start," "Programs," "Lexmark Series." Click "Lexmark Control Program."
  2. Step 2 Select the "Cartridges" tab. Click "Change Cartridges." The Change Cartridges screen appears, displaying the animated instructions for installing or changing cartridges. When you have finished viewing the animation, click the "Finished" button.
  3. Step 3 Remove the tape covering the print head of the new print cartridge. Insert the new print cartridge as shown in the animation.
  4. Step 4 When the "Choose Cartridges" screen appears, select the cartridge(s) you installed in your printer from the list boxes. Click the appropriate box to reset the ink levels to full. Click "OK."
  5. Step 5 The Automatic Alignment screen appears. Click "Align" to align the print cartridges for best print quality. The printer prints a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. On the printed test page, locate the number that comes closest to forming a straight line under the bi-directional alignment pattern. Enter that number as the bi-directional alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge dialog box. Click "OK."

Changed ink cartridges cannot print alignment page, out of ink


You need to reset the ink level before the printer can print further, to do these please follow the following step:
1) Goto the Lexmark Solution Center application.
2) Press button Maintenance>Install a new print cartridge, follow the instruction on screen. U may then have your new full ink level. Note: u only can reset to full level, cannot customize the level by your own.
Then try again with printing alignment task.
Hope this help.

Printing Blank Pages


Try checking the ink cartridges and make sure they have ink in them or it will keep printing blank pages. Then try printing a test page by going to control panel, clicking on printers and faxes and right clicking on your printer and going to properties. Then go all the way down to the bottom of the page and click print test page. It will clean the printer cartridges and align them to print correctly. It should work after that.
