After installing the new ink, it will print a paper for U. put that paper in the scanner and press scan. It's a self-calibration. If that's not the problem, please state what the problem is.

I just installed a new color cartridge in my 8650 Lexmark printer. The ink cartridge acts as if it is empty. Printer keeps telling me to align cargridge. Worked perfectly before the new ink installed. Not...


  1. On your computer, go to "Start," "Programs," "Lexmark Series." Click "Lexmark Control Program."
  2. Step 2 Select the "Cartridges" tab. Click "Change Cartridges." The Change Cartridges screen appears, displaying the animated instructions for installing or changing cartridges. When you have finished viewing the animation, click the "Finished" button.
  3. Step 3 Remove the tape covering the print head of the new print cartridge. Insert the new print cartridge as shown in the animation.
  4. Step 4 When the "Choose Cartridges" screen appears, select the cartridge(s) you installed in your printer from the list boxes. Click the appropriate box to reset the ink levels to full. Click "OK."
  5. Step 5 The Automatic Alignment screen appears. Click "Align" to align the print cartridges for best print quality. The printer prints a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. On the printed test page, locate the number that comes closest to forming a straight line under the bi-directional alignment pattern. Enter that number as the bi-directional alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge dialog box. Click "OK."

Hp psc 750 won't print with new color ink cartridge


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Installed new ink cartridge and it won't work


HI
did you check if the printer printed a cartridge alignment sheet.
you can try power flee initially
take out the cartridge
unplug the power cord
press the power button for 30 seconds
and then replug the cable
when it asks for putting the cartridge
put the cartrige in its respective slot
also make sure that you keep t least one paper on the tray so thst the printer prints an alignment sheet
,it shjould work fine


Hope this helps

My HP printer PSC 1510 All-in-One no longer asks me to align my ink cartridges after a change of cartridges. Now, after a system recovery, it prints an alignment page every time I turn it on, whereas...


The only way to stop this is to press the cancel button, just as it tries to print the test page.

Various people have said the printer won't align (calibrate) successfully unless both ink cartridges are more than 50% full, and until it aligns successfully, it will continue to print the test page on start-up.

It is a total waste of ink and paper, so remember to hit the cancel button when you turn it on.

Computer says there is no ink cartridge


OK guys, I don't know if this will work for you but it worked for me. Here it is:

  1. Uninstall all Lexmark software from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.
  2. Reboot the computer as suggested by the uninstall software
  3. Start the ALL-In-One Installer
Now, the first thing the installer does is load the drivers to your hard drive.

4. When the driver is installed it will ask you what ink cartridges you have. Tell it which ones you have and say they are both brand new (even if one is empty or not new). If it asks you to align the printer or print a test page, say no!

After this is complete, the installer will begin to put in the other software (i.e. fax and scan). It will pause and ask you to click next, but do not do this.

5. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, select the installer task and click end task to stop the installation process.


6. When you print for the first time, it may ask you what cartridges you have installed again. Just select the cartridges you have installed select the option from the drop-down boxes that say that both cartridges are new.

Hope it helps since it worked for me. Good Luck

HP Photosmart C3100 series


I just got off the HP help line.  After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on.  This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink.  I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty.  It turns out that you cant do it.  HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings.  And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer.  The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.
