Check the print setting in the driver config,
Check the print options in the document itself.
Check the print options in the printer menu.
Reseat the color cartridge in the carriage assembly.
Clean the connectors on the carriage assembly that connect to the ink cartridge with a slightly damp cloth or que-tip. if you use a que-tip make sure there is not any cotton left behind.
Try a factory reset on the printer, and reinstalling the drivers.
Also are you using a print server or any kind?

Replaced new ink keeps saying right cartrige is incorrect wont let me print. the cartrige is correct i paid $50.00 for a two pack of black and color ink!!!

Wiping the nozzles with a moistened soft cloth or removing and reinserting the cartridges usually helps. The cartridges for the Lexmark X7170 are black: 32/34 and color: 33/35. If these are the cartridges that you purchased and even tried your old and new cartridges yet the problem persists, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark technical support.

Print with single cartrige. I rarely use color. The color cartrige ran dry and nothing will print in b&w until I buy a new color cartrige ( for about $37.50) and install it. HOW DO I BYPASS THIS...

as long as the color print cartridges remain in the printer you should be able to print in only black and white.
If the error message does not come up and prompt you to chose this option, you should be able to tell the printer to print in black .

(1) go file print or print
(2) a gray box will pop up click on properties
(3) Click color
(4)click gray scale

This should do it for you!
(5) select black print cartridge only

After cyan ran out, installed new cartrige. Printer produced everything colored blue as red. Purchased new cyan cartrige and the problem recurred.

The problem seems from your new cyan cartridge.
It doesnt print cyan ink.
Try to clean print head and test print for each color

450c color problem

The 430 ID is B/W, you need to load the 450C driver to get color, renaming the driver isn't enough.
