Question about Lexmark X1240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark x1240 will not print

Installed drivers & utilities successfully. Printer goes thru all of the motions; head moves, paper feeds, but nothing prints. The black ink cartridge is new. The color cartridge is old and probably out of ink. My question is: does the color cartridge have to be functional in order to print a black only document?

Thanks everybody.

Lexmark x1240 Feeding incorrectly/crooked


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Printer wont print, but it is going through the motions.


If ink cartridges are new, perform print head or maintenance cleaning at least 3x consecutively.

Lexmark x1240 printer / scanner


I don't have a 1240 printer but we have had this problem. Usually we just align the paper and there is usually a movable piece that keeps the printer snug and aligned. Usually we move it right at the edge of the paper. This usually prevents the paper from crinkling. If this doesn't work I would guess that one of the rollers is not working. But my guess is more of the paper guide that you need to move so that the paper stays aligned when it goes in. Let me know if this helps.

Restart after replace ink cartridge


my CX4800 has done the same thing. I ran the utilities dozens of times, replaced every cartridge and it feeds papers the print head moves like it's printing but nothing is imaged on the paper.
Searching the web is my last chance to fix it before i toss this 18 month old printer and never buy an epson again.
