Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Hello, I want to ask how come i still have a black background. even I already changed the charge roll. My model is Lexmark T430.


Poor development or poorly charged toner particles cause excessive background. This is more noticeable as the print cartridge nears end of life.

Make sure the print cartridge is correctly installed and the high voltage contacts are clean.
If the cartridge is installed correctly and the problem persists, try a new cartridge. The cartridge may be nearing end-of-life.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge


Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

I have poor print quality on my Lexmark 4550


That obviously shouldn't happen. Did you print an alignment page after you inserted the new cartridges? There could also be some clogged nozzles on the new cartridges. If you haven't contacted Lexmark technical support through www.lexmark.com, suggest you do so.

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.

Poor or no printing


When inkjet printers are not used much, the ink dries up in the cartridges and on the print head, causing poor printing, and, as the dried ink builds up, no printing at all. no matter how many times the cartridges are changed, the dried ink won't work out. Some people have had luck with this problem by using alcohal and a q-tip to clean the print head. If that doesn't work, you will need a new printer.

Black ink won't print


Any tape/plastic left on the contact points on the cartridge, or any dirt on the contact points on the cartridge or cartridge holder? Will your old cartridge work, except poor print due to empty of ink? If so your new cartridge may be broken.

See if you can try a cartridge known to work in your printer and also try your cartridge in a printer similar to yours to eliminate source of error.

Poor print quality when cartridge replaced


Sometimes you need to perfom 1 or 2 head clenaings to prime the printer with the new ink.

The cleaning will clean your heads and refill the ink.
