Question about Lexmark X1240 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cartidge prob?? Hi hope you can help. My son and I were doing a science project and couldn't purchase any ink at that time of day. The warning sign came up that we were low on light magenta, but we kept pushing ok to just print without it to finish. Then it came up cannot print to ensure printer health. Purchased a new cartridge and installed it but it still says "replace the following empty cartridge to resume printing. Have tried factory resets, unplugging, cleaning contacts etc

You are good at taking things apart and not destroying them, then the problem can usually be fixed easily.

Remove the ink carts.
on either side of the carrage there is a screw, remove both of them.

CAREFULLY slide out the silver bar those screws are holding. Be sure to note its orentation for putting the thing back in later.

also carefully remove the silver "fingers".

remove the black clip/cover on the right side of the carrage that covers the ribbon cables.

lift the head (you see 4 nipples in there-- that is the top of the head assembly)

gently pull out the ribbon cables.

on the bottom of the head is 2 screws, remove them

now the head will come into 4 parts. Nipples, Gasket, nozzle block, and a metal guard.

get some windex with amonia.

soak the parts for a day or 2.

blot dry, then let it set for atleast 2 days to be sure it is COMPLETELY dry.

reassemble, charge the ink, do the printers head cleaning, and boom. back in business.

this works 90% of the time
any further assistance reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye

Incompatible print cartridge


If you purchased the cartidge recently (30 days or less), then just bring it back to the store and tell the associates that it simply stopped working, they may be able to exchange it for you.
If not, you will probably need a new cartidge. The good thing about HP cartidges is that the print head (which is probably your problem) is built in, so issues are usually solved by just buying a new one. This, of course, means you have been replacing your print head every time you run out of ink, which adds up quickly in costs; but thats another subject
Hope that helps, Good Luck!

HP PSC 2410xi color printing issues


Try using warn distilled water and Q-tips to gently clean the area where the ink cartridge and the carriage mate up. You may have dried old ink in there which is clogging the print nozzles. Allow to air dry, reinstall cartidges, start machine and let it go through its cleaning cycle. Also check www.hp.com. Hope this helps.

Dell 924 all in one printer cannot remove low ink warning


Hello,


This happens if you are not using the Dell ink Cartiridges. However there are few work arounds on this issue.

Firstly, Please try to remove cartridges and then clean cartridge slots and make sure that printer is OFF and completed disconnected from Computer. Remove the cable between Printer and Computer while you do this.

After that restart the computer and then try to reconnect every thing and check if this happens


if else, then open the printer properties or printing preferences and locate the option that says Calibrate the cartidges. and do the calibration of cartidges. Calibration is compulsory once if you replace the ink cartidges.

if still fails then reinstall printer software. This should resolve the issue.

Thank you.

No Yellow Or Cyan Ink


Hi do the following and hopefully it will help you. If it doesn't then you have a fault carriage or main PCB.

  • Remove ink Cartridge
  • With a soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the carriage unit and the same on the ink cartridge
  • reinstall the ink cartridge
  • Click start
  • Select printers and faxes
  • Right hand click on the printer icon
  • Select Properties
  • Click on Services Tab
  • Click on clean print heads
  • Then click on Prime.
Hopefully this will work

Thanks J
