Lexmark x4270 Alignment Problem

It prints with text overlapping, so I tried an alignment. However it prints, but then I get a "there's a problem with the printer" and it says to remove tape from cartridges. I reinstalled the driver, checked for anything that could be obstructing the cartridges, but still nothing.
The printer was fine a week ago, nothing has happened since then.
The alignment that gets printed is attached. Notice the red squares. At times they are yellow.
Any help is appreciated.

    No change.
    I tried printing an alignment again, it came out with the same error and the page this time showed up with yellow squares instead of the red squares you see in my previously attached image.

    Text alignment is off sometimes. It seems like it printed the same text but a half inch to the right or left.

When you say you checked to see if anything is obstructing the cartridge, please also make sure the clear tape/tab on the cartridge head was completely removed before use.
If you put another head in, does it work? Sometimes the cartridges are bad, if they have been exposed to extreme temperatures.
A fragment of the protection tab would explain the error as well as the printout, as you don't seem to have any yellow at all.
Hope this helps.

X4270 won't copy after replacing black cartridge. It did run an alignment page, however.


Try this approach:
  1. On the printer operator panel, on Copy mode, press Options.
  2. Select Maintenance.
  3. Select Clean Cartridges
Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print your document again to verify that Copying is properly functioning now.

unplug the power cord from the outlet and wait 3 or 4 minutes.
Plug it back in and choose the alignment program.

Each line of text is printing multiple times, lines overlap, and printing


Hello. That's an alignment problem in the printer. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Clean the nozzles using a damp paper towel. But, if it's possible, try to use new cartridges. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. When the printer's ready, re-insert the cartridges. Let it print an alignment page all the way through.

Poor and inconsistent quality from the black ink.


the problem seems to be un-even distribution of ink. try a different and new ink cartridge. Since you are refilling the cartridge, the ink inside of the cartridge is getting magnetized, there by, the ink stick to the drum of the cartridge and don't distribute the ink evenly. shake would clear it. you need to demagnetized the drum.

The printer should have an alignment setting for the print head. Go to start, printers, select the default printer, right click on it and select properties. Look for printer device settings and look for align print head.

Check to see if any ink is smeared inside the holder where the contact panel is located. Normally gold contacts.
Clean off the contacts with a paper towel or q-tip.
Then try reprinting the alignment page. Then print the test page a few times.

Hope this helps
