Hi There

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 want ti print in color only,how do i do that,?Lexmark X1240 All-In-One InkJet Printer


On your computer, with your file open (your document/picture, etc. that you wish to print), click File > Print. From Print dialog box, click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup (depending on the program). The Print Properties dialog box appears. From the Quality/Copies tab, make sure there is no check mark in the "Print Color images in Black and White ". Then hit OK button to save the setting. Once you print your colored document/pictures, etc, it should come out in color.
I hope this helps.

My printer only prints in color I can not get it to print in black even after I change the black cartridge.What is my problem?


Try to open Lexmark Solution Center application on your computer and check if the software recognizes the ink levels of your cartridges. Go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series folder > Lexmark Solution Center.
You can also use the software to clean the cartridge nozzles for possible dirt and clogs. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Even with out the Black cartridge installed the X1240 should use the color cart to make a "composite" black. I would suggest calling Technical support to troubleshoot that issue ad get you to test the cart itself
