If I schedule a print for my Lexmark X83 it feeds one sheet of paper straight through to the tray but does not print anything. No alarms anywhere on system. Same thing occurs if I ask for test print or...


Sounds like a clogged print head. In the lexmark printer software there should be a maintenance tool where you can try and clean the print heads.
By the same token the X83 is about 10 years old and well past the life cycle of most ink jet printers so if the troubleshooting tools don't get it back in order, it will be cheaper to replace than to repair.

I installed new color and black ink cartridges and keep getting: color cartridge short. Press power key. Hence, the printer will not work.


It could be a "short-circuit" type of electronic problem inside the colour cartridge.
Turn the printer off.
Remove the colour cartridge.
Purchase a new colour cartridge.
Insert it.
Turn the printer on.
If you still get the error, take the printer to a qualified technician.

No printing


  1. Snap the cartridges in and out of the printer a couple of times.
  2. Clean the copper contacts with a dry cloth.
If this did not work then you need to give for service shop ,if they charge more than $50, you can buy new printer for the same charge..

Printer does not connest to pc


I think "Cartridge short" is refering to a short circuit to the ink cartridges, remove them and clean the contacts, and try again, if this persists try replacing the cartridges
