    I have the same problem. Tried refilling, color did not work. Bought new, still does not work. Cleaned contacts with water blotting first; did not work. Then tried Q-Tip with alchohol on cartridge and printer; still did not work. Tried cleaning with an eraser as suggested by a sales rep at cartridge refilling store, still no luck. I think this is the last Lexmark I will buy.

I have a Lexmark 1200 printer. Colour promlems


It could be that the cartridge has become dry.
you have to try several head cleans using the printer software and if that doesnt help then the cartridge needs to be replaced.

Can ip1300 print with just black ink cartridge?


AS far as I know you cannot put a black cartridge in the place of a colour cartridge it has to be a colour one. Check your printer properties to see if you can set your printer to work in black only, if you can then set it to black but leave the empty colour cartridge in place. This works for my 1800. Give it a try.

I keep getting cartridge error or it prints a blank page. There is no tape on the cartridge and they are installed properly. It prints sometimes but not all the time Printer keeps saying cartridge error


This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!

Refilled color cartridge for lexmark Z845


The only work around to this is to use two catridges(2 color and 2 black and white). The reason is the printer has a mechanism to check if the same catridge is being used again. SO when you have two cartridges when one is finished refill the other and use and vice-versa. This way you will be able to refill and use for ever without any problems..

My Lexmarkx1270 will not print any black text etc


Is it a new cartridge? If the cartridge has been sitting a while it can get clogged. Try using a moist paper towel and gently wiping the cartridge where the ink comes out.
You could also try running the Lexmark Solutions Center program and use the clean nozzles option to force it to squirt out some black ink.
