It is possible that you may just need to clean the printer. The link below will help you do that.

Also was the Photo Black working before and it so how long had it been since you last used that color.

Printer prints fine so far as text, but a black and white photo has streaks in it. Black Ink level shows it isn't low


Try to clean the printhead nozzles. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your photo again to verify that the print quality has improved.
Also, make sure your printer is udpated. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Pro200 Series Firmware Update. The update will help give you a highly reliable print system.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Epson R2400 does not display all the paper types available, currently only a small number. Why is this please?


It depends on which Black cartridge you have installed. For Glossy Photo papers the Photo Black (PK) needs to be in the printer. For all other papers to appear then you need to change it to the Matt Black (MK) cartridge.

We want to put a 1992 Park Ave 3800 motor into a 1999 Pk AV 3800. Is that posssible


the motor may bolt up - the fuel line connections - throttle body wire connections and other wire connections will probably not connect - the main difference is on the top side from heads up on the 2 motors - the design change was for 1996 cars

My incoming faxes won't print. both black ink cartridges r full


Is there any message when you try to print the faxes?

If there is an "Image Quality" message, probably the printer is set up to "Copy" in "Photo" or "Fine" mode and it needs to be set to something other than "Fine" or "Photo"

Epson stylus k3 r2400


Hi Lisa
The R2400 has the choice of two black inks, MK and PK. One is for Matt printing, the other (called photo black) is for gloss.
If the printer has the matt cartridge fitted it only allows suitable options, including paper choice, to be selected. If you change the black cartridge from the MK to the PK one, you should then have the choice of gloss paper.
