Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have just installed a new black ink cartridge (16) and now my Lexmark won't print "black" at all.
It is not unusual to receive a bad cartridge. The ink or the fiber in those cartridges are subject to blocking ( drying) while not in use.
That would be the most likely problem.

Wweluvgolf, sometimes after you remove the protective tap from the ink cartridge, it leaves behind tape residual. Suggest you clean the ink cartridge's copper contacts with alcohol & cotton swabs. (No dripping alcohol). Do not clean the bottom of the ink cartridge. Also clean the copper contacts in the carriage. Allow all to dry. Reassemble & try printing a test page.
In the future keep your recipts when buying ink. From time to time you will buy a bad cartridge. With the recipt you'll be able to exchange it for another (free). Always store ink in it's upright posistion.
If this did not help please let me know & post the model number of the printer.

Check to make sure you have removed the plastic covering on the new ink cartridge contact. Run a calibration/alignment test on your printer. (If you're not sure how to do this, Google "how to align cartridges on----- your modle printer). Finally, you may want to do a "hard-reset" on the printer. Turn it off, unplug it for 30 seconds and try again. Good luck!
