Question about Lexmark X2600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Both cartridges in my X2600 show full and have had little use. The printer has not been used for 2-3 months. A test page will only print faintly. I have tried cleaning several times, but it does not improve. How can I rejuvenate the cartridges.

The cartridges may already have dried out due to non-usage. Try to clean the cartridges again. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water, and then place the cloth on a flat surface. Gently hold the nozzles against the cloth for about three seconds, and then wipe in the direction shown.

That should force ink out of the cartridge and hopefully will unclog the nozzles and clean it from dirts. If this tip doesn't help, maybe it's time to replace your cartridges.

My lexmark x2600 keeps telling me i need to realign the cartridge but nothing is really wrong.. wont let me print anything but alignment test pages. How do i fix this


One of the utilities included with the Lexmark software will print a "test" page.
Then, you view the test page, and enter some numbers into the utility.
The utility uses those numbers to (ectronically) align the print-heads.

Myprinter will not print all colours they are mainly blue and yellow but very faint. I have carried out ALL the maintenace procedures several times without success and have checked that all the cartridges...


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Printers
Right-mouse-click on your printer, and choose "printing preferences" or "properties".
There may be an option to control how "light" or "dark" the printing will be, i.e., use "less" or "more" ink per page.

Also, click "print test page", to ensure that the test-page has all 3 "primary" colours.

Also, click "clean ink cartridges", to try to repair any blockages inside the ink-cartridge.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.


Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.

1. check the cartridge on another printer to check if the cartridge is OK.
2. If cartridge is OK, print a test page on the printer. If the paper comes out properly, the mechanism turns properly, does it have any print out even a faint one.

Try these and keep posted.
