    Same problem.
    Reinstalled driver, checked inside for anything that could obstruct the cartridges but still getting the same error.
    I try printing an alignment, it prints but then it gives the message "there's a problem with the printer" and says to make sure the tape is removed.
    The printer worked fine a week ago, nothing has changed since then.

    BTW, the alignment that came out, the fifth line is of blue squares, but at the end they ar more spaced apart with red (sometimes) yellow squares.

Hi alyciaadamo;
im not sure but i think uninstalling and reinstalling will not get the printer set back to default settings. can you navigate through the menu even if you see the error? press the cancel or something? if you can,look for reset factory settings.

also try to remove all the ink cartridge, and power cable from the printer, wait for 30mins and try it back.

I just want to know if your using genuine lexmark ink for you printer. :)

Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridges for your model. The Lexmark X5470 uses 32 or 34 black cartridge and the 33 or 35 color cartridge.
Try to follow the steps below to identify and fix the problem:
  1. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Check the encoder strip (transparent strip usually found behind the cartridge carrier) and make sure it has not gotten unseated from its position.
  2. Close the cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  3. When the printer turns on, check for any errors on the printer display screen. If "alignment problem" error appears, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.
  4. If no error appears, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover and check for errors.
  5. Reinsert the other cartridge.
  6. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. It may be faulty. You may also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the cartridge you're currently using is defective.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a X5470 Lexmark printer and it keeps telling me there is an alignment problem and is asking me to remove tape from the cartridges. There is no tape there that I can see.


It could be the cartridges in the carrier. Open the printer cover. Remove both cartridges. While the cover is open, check for any obstructions in the cartridge carrier's path. If all is well, close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first then close the cover. Check for any errors. Then, open the printer cover again and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. Or you can try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for your model. Try to remove both the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges when prompted. Close the cover and check for any error. If none, try to print again.

I installed a new cartridge and I keep getting an error message to remove the tape, which I did before the install. The alignment test fails.


Printer normally does the alignment printing whenever you do something on the cartridges (removing, reseating or replacing). Try to remove the cartridges from the printer. Clean the nozzles using a damp paper towel, if necessary. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. When it's ready, insert the cartridges. Let the printer print the alignment page again. Let it finish the whole page without cancelling it.
Check if the problem persists.

Alignment problem


Disconnect from computer - remove cartridges - wipe the bottom of them - not the side - reinsert - reconnect - try again - should ask to realign cartridges... cheers

Changed color cartridge and getting error


I had the same problem with my X8300 printer. As the printer was less than a year old Lexmark sent me a new printer. I will keep this printer until it to goes wrong and then buy another brand. Lexmark - cheap and nasty, I am afraid.

Clean the heads, printer is not reading new cartridge or refilled cartridge. You may also have a paper jam if alignment is affected. Check for little jams, post back if no go lilacgerry xxx

Error after reloading color ink


Remover Black and color cartridges. Place small paper towel to protect ink outlet on bottom of printer. Use WD-40 spray on copper surfaces,both sides(Blk& Color). Dry surfaces with paper towel. remove small towel placed in bottom . Reinstall both cartridges. This cleared my 1102 error. Die Rote Baron!
