Question about Lexmark 83 Color Ink Cartridge (Twin Pack) Printer
What model printer is this? Is it an official Lexmark brand or a generic brand cartridge? If it is a generic brand it must not have been manufactured properly. Your old cartridge became streaky towards the end because of the fact that Lexmark ink tends to dry up very quickly. It needs to be used every now and then or it will start to clog the holes at the bottom of the cartridge. Also check to see if the box has some sort of expiry date. Some cartridges have a shelf life on only 2 years. It may have been on its way out.
Thanks for reading!
Hope this helps

1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer.
You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red
instead of the standard green.
2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand
name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You
can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.
3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the
sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink
cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges
4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the
protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink
cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.
5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print
several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink
cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.
