Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Several months ago I purchased a new #83 color cartidge for my Lexmark Printer. I opened it' foil container and removed the protective tape and repleced my old cartidge with this new one. Tested it and found it fine. After about a month it was doen to one-half a cartridge and it began poor color reproduction. Reds were faint then dark, then brown, then absent intermitently. I took it back yesterday to the Office Depot where I bought it and they said they could do nothing about it. What recourse, if any, do I have with Lexmark as it was an expensive cartridge .

How to replace the ink cartridge


1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.


2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.


3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.


4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.


5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

I need to down load my Lexmark X7350 all in one S


If your referring to loading the software; make sure the USB cable is not connected untill the software prompts you to connect it. If you want to load an ink cartridge open the top cover with the printer on and the ink carrier will move to the center. press the release tab and remove the old cartridge, if applicable, and replace with new cartidge. Be sure to remove all of the tape on the bottom of the cartidge first. Close the cartidge cover and the printer cover and you should be all set to go.

Lexmark x7170 printer cartridge error


Remove the color ink cartridge and double check that the plastic tape, which you removed from the cartridge is completely removed. I've noticed that sometimes a small piece of the protective tape tears and stay stuck on the cartridge causing the printer to give a false error. When replacing the cartridge be sure its fully inserted into the color cartridge holder and the locking mechanism locks securely.

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.

X1270 NO COLOR PRINTING


I know what you mean by an inexpensive printer. The cartridges cost more than the printers! A simple, but often overlooked solution is to make sure that the tape protecting the bottom of the cartridge has been removed. Check that and let me know the results.

Installed black print cartridge will not print now?


nope, there should be no tape on the cartridge. This is preventing the ink from coming out.

Refill colored ink, what holes, lexmark x5470


To open the printer, just above the front control panel you use both hands & pull upwards. The whole top of the printer will open up. The ink cartrifges will be close to the center of the opening. The printer should be on for this. There are two ink cartrages. The one with the black lid is for your black ink. There is a small tab in front of the cartridge lid. Push down on the tab & the lid will open. Remove the old ink. Remove the tape that is protecting the the bottom & copper back side of the new ink. Place the ink into the printer. The copper back that runs from the bottom & up the back side about 3/4" goes into the printer cartridge. The colored ink goes into the other cartridge holder, it's lid is blue. Again press the tab just in front of the lid & it will pop open. Repeat the above removing the protective tape & install the ink.
The ptinter will want to run either a test page or allignment page or both. You will need your manual. If you do not have your manual you can download it from this site. Click the link below.
