When you say "printer cartridges shooting from side to side when poweed on or lid opened & closed", do you mean that it's banging from side to side? Turn off the printer. Remove the cartridges from the printer. While the cover of the printer is open, check inside for anything out of the ordinary like any tapes or strips that are loose. If none, turn off/on printer and reload the cartridges. If the banging noise is still present, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. It might be a mechanical problem in the printer.

Lexmark X1150 - how do I change ink cartridge


Make sure the printer is on. Lift the scanner unit to access the cartridge area. The cartridge carrier will automatically move to the center at the loading position. Squeeze the tabs on the cartridge lids, and then lift the lids. Remove the used cartridges. (refer to sample image below. printer shown may not look like your printer, however, the steps are the same.)

Insert new cartridges. Color cartridge should be in the left carrier and the black in the right carrier. Snap the lid closed. Lift the scanner unit and push the scanner support back while lowering the scanner unit until it is completely closed.
Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't position automatically to the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the carrier to the middle of the printer. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source.
Thanks.

How do i install the ink cartridge in my lexmark z35 printer


Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

Hi.. i have a lexmark z617 printer and everytime i want to print a document with colours, it power button starts blinking. When i removed the colour cartridge, then the power button stops blinking. what...


When did this start happening?
After a long time not being used, the ink dryes and clogs the heads. Try cleaning the heads and install a new ink cartridge. Run any fresh install that is issued with the printer.

Colour Printing


Take the cartridge out to make sure there is no residue from the blue tape that you removed. Then try this cleaning process.

Document color differs from screen color- lexmark z617


Sounds like the print head is clogged. Some models have the head in the cartridge, others don't. Those that do, a cartridge replacement will help, others need cleaning manually. Also, a software head cleaning may be all it needs.

Hi,

Go to http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi enter your region and country.

Then enter lexmark z617 as the search term. It will take you to a page that will allow you to download the driver.

You can also do a search in google for "lexmark z617 drivers" This give many sources, but you are better off going to the Lexmark site.

Cannot install lexmark z617 printer have lost disc


Hey there spud1,

Click Here for the Lexmark Drivers and Downloads page.

Type the model in to the left search box (z617). A drop down menu will appear. Click on z617 (I didn't write it). Then Click on Select.

Select your Operating System and follow the prompts.

Be advised, some older Lexmark printers are not supported in newer operating systems (Don't shoot the messenger). Other than that, this will get you going.
