Hello, i see that this model takes the hp 92 black ink, and the hp 93 color ink, sometimes one of the colors on the 93 color cartridge fails, either thru drying out, or runs out of, what you can try is take a paper towel, get it wet, take the cartridges out, and clean the printhead area of the cartridges, you might also want to use alcohol and clean the elctronic contacts, this might work, but if cartridges are old, or near empty, then you may get some improvement.

Depending on the age of the printer, the service staion may need to be cleaned. The service station is where the cartridges "park" when they are not in use. Over time ink can collect in this area and therefore the ink cartridges do not get a thorough cleaning. I would go to HP's website and look for cleaning instructions for your printer model. Hope this helps

HP 1610xi printer printing very lightly, barely legible, after changing to new HP cartridges and doing cleaning maintenance repeatedly.


Check the settings in your printer driver. I have seen similar issues with a setting often called draft or eco mode. Where it prints very faintly.

Thanks

I have replaced both my color and black cartrigages for my x2500 printer, restarted the computer, and it is still giving me an empty cartrigage message


is this a pc or mac?

for windows general make sure you folowed these steps:

  1. Click Start, Programs, Lexmark Series.
  2. Click Lexmark Control Panel.
  3. Click Print Cartridge installation.
  4. Depending on which cartridges you are using and which printer model you have, select Install Color Cartridge or Install Black Cartridge or Install Photo Cartridge.
  5. Carefully remove the tape covering the printhead of the print cartridge. Important: Be sure to remove all of the tape. Do not touch the copper area on the back of the cartridge.
  6. Insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge carrier.
  7. Push the cartridge back until it clicks into place.
    • If the print cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it is not locked into place. Repeat step 7.
  8. Click the appropriate Cartridge Installed option in the printer software.
    • If you choose to install a new print cartridge, you will be prompted to align your print cartridges. The printer will print a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. Follow these steps to align the cartridges:
      1. On the printed test page, locate the number under the Bi-directional Alignment pattern that comes closest to forming a straight line.
      2. Enter the number as the Bi-directional Alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge screen.
      3. Click OK.
  9. Close the front cover of the printer.

Your ink cartridge (s) is dried up, even some new ones are dried up, even tho' they're sealed.

Some self-tests don't use black.
