My LexmarkX1270 All-in-One was working fine with color. All of a sudden it stopped printing the color. I changed the cartridge out to a new one even though it indicated I still had plenty of ink. Still no color!

Yes in the Iqueue advance printing part click it from color to mona and remove the cyan magenta and yellow drums and that will prevent the black toner for hitting the drums and marking before it gets to the fuser
I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".
This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.
what do you mean changed color, please elaborate so i can help you out, in similar scenario it could be a sliping clutch that controls the developing unit causing the respective color to disengage while working on, M, C Y, K pls identify which is which, if you can try one of each color independently as a diuagnostic then youcan start from there which color is malfunctioning,remember the combination of each color depends upon each other color, thus maybe is the reason you can see a sudden changed of color
Loks like there is a "well" under the "docked" position of the heads (at the right end of the unit, facing it - under the control buttons.) In my unit, ink had built up in this well to the point that some of the mechanical bits were scraping the top of the built-up ink pile. After I carefully removed about two TootsieRoll's-worth of old dried ink with a long scewdriver (using a flashlight to illuminate the area), the color printing seemed to be doing better. Can't tell yet if this has completely resolved the problem, as I have not yet printed enough pages to prove the point...
