If the red light under the cartridges blinks, then it should be cartridge related issue, but there's another, the clicking sound. This makes the problem more tough to guess and bring out the solution. For now I can only suggest you to reseat the cartridges and clean the cartridges contacts. You should also clean the contacts on the printer, use a piece of cotton soaked with alcohol or acetone to clean the contacts, and don't ever touch the print head, it is easily damaged and really fragile.

Do this while the printer is turned off and make sure the power chord is unplugged. If you can reach the cartridge parking portion (the compartment where the cartridges with the carriage rest while there's no printing in progress) with a tweezer and clean the waste ink pads,(sponges that collect the wasted ink dropping from the cartridges) that'll help a lot. Catch a piece of cloth with the tweezer and try to absorb the waste ink accumulated at the corner.

After you are done, take a blower and blow inside the compartment and paper passage of the machine to make sure there's no foreign particles obstructing the movement of the mechanisms.

I am not sure what and what you've already done, but I do hope that you might have atleast tried some basics troubleshooting methods. If you've already done all these, don't try to continue it if you are sure about it. No need to waste time and money, rather call Lexmark and let them send their man to inspect the machine. You may not like to hear this but that's the only final destination.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Alright, looks like that the gearing skipped. This will need to be calibrated to set the gearing in right place.

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.
