Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

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.

I am having trouble with my printer its a Lexmark Z605 Z600 Series I bought a new Black Cartridge16 and it wont print out clearly it come out very faded i had a 17 Black in before this one.Cheers Bev.


Are you sure your new cartridge compatible with your printer....

A faded print image is normally the result of one of three conditions: The printer is getting low on toner, the print density is set too low, or Economode printing is turned on.

Printer acts as though it's printing but nothing shows on the paper


If you have not used your printer for a while the phe ink cartridges can dry out, or you have run out of ink. You may need to install new cartidges, you could try cleaning the print heads wich is done with a button on the control panel or from your PC.

Lexmark z605 color printer


The ink in the cartridges has most likely dried out and they will need to be replaced.

I have a Lexmark x1100 Series printer and cannot print anything now. This printer has been working but it stopped printing. Do not have the CD.


Need more info. Any error messages? Did it just stop pumping ink on paper. Are you trying to print black text or color picture? If no error, your cartridges may be empty. If black text does not work, try color picture. Usually one cartridge goes empty and the other still has ink. If color pic prints replace black cartridge. If neither black or color prints at all, it may be a toasted printhead

If you need to reinstall the software, uninstall it, then go to lexmark.com and get new drivers from their site. RESTART COMPUTER! Reinstall from the downloaded file.

If all the above fail to make it work, it is hosed, shop for new printer.

My Z600 series color jetprinter


Your printer works with lexmark 16 or 17 for black and 26 or 27 cartridges for color.

They are simple, without any problems, so if your printer doesnt print at all, they are 2 possible reasons:

  1. The cartridge you have now are defective, dryed out or with with bad electrical contacts. You should try new ones, better spend a few extra money on original lexmark cartridges so you can be sure it's not problem no.2
  2. The printer has a problem with the neddle-like contacts where the cartridge electrical circuits lean on, maybe some dirt is ther, you should check that.
If it doesn't work after cleaning the contacts and with ORIGINAL cartridges, it's an other issue, but i can bearly help you from a distance with so few details you give about the problem.

But, considering the very low price of suc a printer, maybe it's cheaper to get a new one.

Rate the solution if it helped you.

Thx!
