Question about Lexmark Z715 InkJet Printer

Uncompleted printing job

Machine says "cartridge stalled." Have tried to remedy, but no results. Have already tried to uninstall and reinstall, but still no results. Prints 3/4 of first page, then stops.

Have unplugged all cords, plus black box on reverse of printer, waited several minutes, and then replugged. No results. Same message "cartridge stalled."

    I have the same problem. I found the mylar strip that goes behind the print head had broken on one end. I assume this is some sort of limit strip. I have not been able to find any info on purchasing a new strip. Can anyone help?

    I have the same problem. I found a mylar strip that goes across the printer behind the print cartridge had broken. I assume this mylar strip is what limits the head from hitting against the sides of the printer. I have not been able to find where I can purchase a new strip. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

My Lexmark Z715 printer has always worked fine until this morning. I turned it on and the light blinked so I turned it off and then on again and the cartridge slamed one side of the pinter and then slamed the other side. I tried it several times and always the same. It would not stop in the middle so I could check it out. Does it need replacing?

Print job disappearing and not printing

1. Check for a paper jam. Paper jams occur when one or more sheets of paper become stuck in the feeding or printing mechanism. Gently remove any jammed paper and reset the printer.
2. Check ink levels. Those ink cartridges run out fast. If your printer looks like it is printing but nothing comes out on the page, you might be out of ink. Try replacing the cartridge and printing again.
3. Check for a clogged print head. If you know you have ink, the print head might be clogged. Navigate to "Control Panel > Printer > Right Click > Properties > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges" to attempt to clean the print head.
4. Reinstall printer drivers and software. If none of the above helps, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer and software to correct possible software bugs, errors or conflicts.

5. Check printer drivers. Navigate to "Control Panel > Printers > Right Click > Properties > Update Driver" to check for a new driver for your printer. You can also find drivers and software on the Canon Support site (see Resources).
6. Resolve the Waste Ink Error. Press menu on the printer and press scan/copy to enter service more. Press the right arrow to access "NVRAM." Set ABS-M level to 0. Set ABS-P level to 0. Press "Stop" to exit.
7. Resolve Wrong Cartridge Message. Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord. Remove the cartridges and the print head. Clean the print head in lukewarm water. Set it aside to dry. Clean the contacts gently with an eraser and wipe with a tissue. Reinstall the print head and reinsert the cartridges. Run a cartridge alignment.
8. Resolve E0D02 error. Clean the cartridges and the sender strip. The sender strip is behind the rubber drive belt behind the main hatch. It runs horizontally across the machine. Wipe it gently with a lint free cloth.

Have an MD 1300. printer begins then stops before actually doing the job. Get message: "cartridge change error - cannot complete print job." I have tried putting in a new cartridge but same...

What color are the cartridges that you are putting in? Are they blue or are they greyish in color? If you are trying to print on laser or other such paper, you need to be using the greyish cartridges. Also make sure that the cartridges that you put in have plenty of ribbon in them and that you've put them in facing the correct direction, you should be able to see the color names when you open the printer. If you don't, you've installed them facing the wrong way. Also make sure that you have all the correct colors installed for the print job. Unless you're printing strictly in black and white, you'd be surprised at what colors are needed to make a color, unless you're using pure Cyan, Magenta or Yellow. Any colors other than those will need to use a combo of those colors to reproduce colors properly. I hope this helps. If not, write back and say what steps you've followed to try to remedy the error.

Printer Prints nothing as it moves.

print a test print from the printer first without sending the command form the pc, if this works, that rule out the printer problem. then check the printer's history and see if you don't have uncompleted work on the status. if you have delete and resend. if you don't, uninstall and reinstall the printer. good luck

Lexmark 2500 printer problems

its very possible the new cartridge is faulty. I would suggest getting another one. Some new cartridges are acutually refurbished and just refilled and sold. Eventually they stop working correctly.

Printer shows ready, whenI send a print job to the printers it displays printing, but does not print. The unable to cancel or remove printing jobs.

Check if the printhead starts moving when powering on the printer. The problem might lie in the printhead electrical contact pints in which case clean it gently. Alternatively replace the print cartridge where at least black ink is present. If these are OK but it wont pull in the paper then the rollers might be jammed. If its a laser printer,check by changing the tober cartridge amd post the result as a comment.........sodeep
