Lexmark x2600 printer; color looks great for 1st 2 inches of printing then changes; green went blue, yellow went white, red to purple.


Your cartridges may need to be cleaned. Open the Lexmark Solution Center and select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. This will force ink out through the cartridge nozzles, cleaning it from dirts and clogs. This will improve print quality on your printer. Also, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges to achieve high quality results.

If the cyan or the blue ink is printing out in purple here's what you can do:


Clean the Printhead & Print a test page by doing the ff:


1. Press the Ink Management button press the Up or down arrow key to select Test Print, then select Print Quality press OK and press Black or Color START. Check all the colors including the black & check if there are any missing dots and if there are any colors not printing correctly.


2. Press the Ink Management button on the control panel and select cleaning press ok

3. Press the up or down arrow key to select Color press ok and press Black Start.


*After the cleaning process the printer will ask you if the quality is OK, press up or down to select yes or no, and it will ask you whether black or color is ok, once you have selected you're answer press Black or Color START to print another test page. Compare the 1st and 2nd test page if it's improving, you may need to do this 3-5 times or until you get a better quality

Picture prints have no yellow, purple tint


I've solved this with multiple head cleaning. I cleaned the print heads 7 or 8 times and it's working ok again now.

To clean your print heads do the following:

  1. On your computer, start the KODAK AiO Home Center.
  2. If the Help toolbar is not open, click the Help (?) icon in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. From the Help toolbar, select Maintenance.
  4. Click Printhead Cleaning, and wait for the printer to complete the cleaning.
hope this helps
