Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Lexmark X420 is not printing

My printer is scanning alright but it is not printing.
I tried everything but it doesn't work.....
The cartridges are new .....Please help My Lexmark x4270 was printing just fine, but one day it decided to quit. Now it will fax out just fine, but it doesn't receive fax and now it refuses to print anything. I've tried to download the software that it came with, but I guess I have to get rid of the previous download which it refuses to do. This is extremely frustrating.

    You need first to do the following:

    Check first a different usb cable (if it scans shouldn't be the case).

    Check that the printer is the default printer or you are not printing to a different printer installed in windows

    Do driver setup procedure.

    Disconnect printer from usb.

    Go to 'installed printers' and remove the printer from windows (right click and delete). If you have documents in printer cue you may need to purge documents in cue.

    Restart computer (printer disconnected).

    Re-install drivers from disk (printer disconnected).

    Only connect printer to usb when required by printer install software or after installing software.

    If the above did not work the printer can be faulty, in this case usually it shows some dignostic message, like flashing red light etc.

    Check also that is not a windows problem, by installing in on a different computer (get a laptop) and printing a test page.

Wont print


It could be that your cartridges needs some cleaning. Try to follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Make sure your printer is connected to your computer and is turned on.
  2. From your computer, go to Start menu.
  3. Go to Programs or All Programs.
  4. Go to Lexmark 1200 Series folder.
  5. Select Lexmark Solution Center.
  6. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them from possible clogs and dirt. After successfully printing the page, try to print your document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, you can manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly damped paper towel. Then reinsert the cartridges and try to print again.
If the problem continues, then it could be a faulty cartridge. Try to insert a different known working cartridge or better yet a brand new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Lexmark products work best with original supplies.
I hope this helps. Thanks.

Ran out of ink, changed the ink and the printer prints a blank paper...checked the ink everything is good...still nothing printing??


Make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges.
Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > unplug / re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, firmly reinsert the cartridges. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. Open the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer by going to Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > Maintenance tab > Under Select a Maintenace tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. > click Print. Then try to print a document again.

How do I correct this printing problem? My colored letters on the page print. Black print doesn't print onto the paper. I have a lexmark z615 printer.


Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center by going to the Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > click the Maintenance tab > under Select Maintenance tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks > click Print. The printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that doesn't help, remove the black cartridge and try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirt and clogs. After wiping the nozzles, reinsert the cartridge into the printer. Print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.

Lexmark Series X1150 My printer does not recognize the color print cartridge and only prints in Black even though the color cartridge is new. First time this has ever happened. I've had the printer...


Make sure you are inserting the correct color cartridge versions for the Lexmark X1150 (either #26 or #27).
Try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center, click Start > Programs > Lexmark X1100 Series > Lexmark X1100 Series Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page that will help clean the nozzles from possible dirt and clogs.
If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working cartridge (e.g. your old cartridge or another new cartridge). It could be a faulty cartridge issue.

When i refil a new ink printer after i close it cannot print, black cartridge missing, so how i solve it.


Try to reseat the cartridge into the printer. If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
Note that Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled / 3rd party / remanufactured cartridges. These type of cartridges tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance.

I have a Lexmark X6690 and bought new Lexmark print cartridges today - Black and Colour. The printer is recognising the colour cartridge but not the black one. Driving me nuts!! Please help x


Try to reseat the black cartridge. If that doesn't help, try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On the printer operator panel > press Setup button > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges > Ok. Your printer will then print a page, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean them. Try to print again. You may also try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. If your new cartridge is faulty, return it to the purchase store (if within return period) or contact Lexmark technical support for assistance.

All in one printer does not scan or copy


If the Ink Status is showing a ? symbol after you have replaced the tanks, you just need to tell the printer that you replaced tanks ,

To do that , open your lexmark solution centre from the Lexmark start menu group.
