Question about Lexmark X6180 Printer

Open Question

My printer is printing pages with a blank space in the upper right hand side of the paper. It also prints blank pages. Further, I get error messages that tape need to be removed from the cartridges. II am using official LexMark ink cartridges. I have also run cleaning and alignment program. What can I do?

    Does the problem also happen when you only make a copy using the operator panel? Have you already tried uninstalling the software then reinstalling it?

SOURCE: my lexmark 3550 printer wont print

If you have storage your printer for nearly a year then myself I think the heads have gone dry and blacked you will need to clean the heads, if the heads are on the inks then no problem just get new ink but if it been standing that long and the heads are on the printer itself and not on the ink cartridge then you will have to find the heads some will clip out but some will have to be screwed out and then you can clean them by dabbing a little worm water on a cloth on the heads to try get them clean.
It not good to leave them standing, if you go to store them for a long time then you go to take out the inks and clean the heads before storage.

    Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for your model. Try to remove both the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges when prompted. Close the cover and check for any error. If none, try to print again.

      You can try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirts and clogs. You can also clean the nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer. If you're using Windows, go to Programs/All Programs > Lexmark 3600-4600 Series folder > From the printer folder, click Maintenance > Clean Cartridges > Print. A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.

      I am trying to print a booklet 2 pages per sheet double sided. Printing is OK but spacing is no good for the binding when the pages are cut in two. What instructions should I give the printer to allow...


      By spacing, I assume you mean the margins at the centre.

      The default margin settings are not the same for the right and left hand side of the page, so the printing on the reverse side is offset from the printing on the first side.

      The right margin is always wider to allow for punch holes in file paper.

      It is not the printer settings you need to adjust, it is the page layout of your word processing software.

      Adjust the margin settings manually. In MS Office 2007:

      Page Layout > Margins > Mirrored Margins.

      Hope this helps.

      My printer -X1185 prints the page with a 3 inch blank area on the left side and some of the right side printing is off the page. This is typical in my e mail page, and even if I center the letter on...

      Web site designers create Web pages for display on a monitor, not for users to print on 8.5- x 11-inch pieces of paper. This becomes obvious the first time you try to print a Web page. Content you need may get chopped off by the right printer margin, whereas content you don’t need, such as the site’s copyright information, will print on its own sheet of paper. Fortunately, you can avoid such problems with a little foresight.

      Before printing any Web page, open Internet Explorer’s File menu and select Print Preview. The current Web page will appear on-screen exactly as it will print on paper. Scan the preview carefully. If it appears that some content is chopped off by the right margin, click the Page Setup button located directly to the right of the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. In the resulting Page Setup dialog box, adjust the left and right margins so that each is set to 0.25 inches. The extra inch of space you gain by resetting the margins should provide just enough room to accommodate all of the content on most sites. Click OK to save the changes and return to the Print Preview window.

      Next, scan the preview to determine which pages contain the content you want to print. Take note of those pages and click the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. Locate the Print Range heading and select the Pages option. Type the number of the first page you want to print in the From field and type the number of the last page you want to print in the To field. For instance, if you want to print just the first three pages of a Web page’s content, type 1 in the From field and type 3 in the To field. If your browser doesn’t have To and From fields, type the range of pages (such as 1-3) in the corresponding field. Make sure your printer has paper and click Print.

      I have a grey/black line all the way down the right hand side of the page

      Run a half test.
      Put paper in the manual feed tray.
      Print something, anything
      When the paper is 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover.
      Pull out the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper.
      Does it have a black line on the right side?
      If yes, replace the cartridge. If no, replace the fuser.

      It will not print Word documents. it pulls a blank piece of paper through. It will print in notepad

      there is something wrong with your Word printer setup. Go to Word, then from the File menu select the Print option and when the print window opens see if the HP deskjet is selected as default printer. Then, in the upper right quadrant theres a button called Advanced Settings, or Prefferences (depending on your Word version). Click that button and check to see if the HP printer is set as On Line, and is set to print odd and even pages. Also, check the margins of the paper. Ink Jet printers cant print over the full page, there's always a need of some margin on each side of the paper, so you'll need to set the margins from all sides on at least 0.5 inches

      Put spaces in your type to move it over if you cannot move the margins. You might also be able in print options page setup to indent the margins or paragraph so it prints inside the page.
