Question about Lexmark X83 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark X83 printer has streaks printing color pictures (but text is fine)

My Lexmark X83 printer is having problem printing color pictures. It shows horizontal streaks across the picture on all 3 yellow, red, and blue colors and especially bad on yellow.
Lexmark X83's Control Program is showing that my cartrige is full.
I have already done the "Clean Nozzles" functions 5 times with no improvement, if anything, it got even worse.
Please help me get rid of these streaks so I can print nice pictures. Thank you.

Printer prints fine so far as text, but a black and white photo has streaks in it. Black Ink level shows it isn't low


Try to clean the printhead nozzles. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your photo again to verify that the print quality has improved.
Also, make sure your printer is udpated. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Pro200 Series Firmware Update. The update will help give you a highly reliable print system.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a Lexmark x1100 Series printer and cannot print anything now. This printer has been working but it stopped printing. Do not have the CD.


Need more info. Any error messages? Did it just stop pumping ink on paper. Are you trying to print black text or color picture? If no error, your cartridges may be empty. If black text does not work, try color picture. Usually one cartridge goes empty and the other still has ink. If color pic prints replace black cartridge. If neither black or color prints at all, it may be a toasted printhead

If you need to reinstall the software, uninstall it, then go to lexmark.com and get new drivers from their site. RESTART COMPUTER! Reinstall from the downloaded file.

If all the above fail to make it work, it is hosed, shop for new printer.

Printer does not print correctly.


It sounds like you have a clogged printerhead without seeing test page it is always abasic guide. I would thoroughly manually clean all cartridge printheads (whether on the cartridge or the unit) with cotton buds and proper cleaning solution. Try and print once you reset your ink levels. post back if no help.
