My Lexmark X75 PrinTrio Won't Print Color

I've tried everything, including cleaning it (although there wasn't really anything to clean in the first place), but it just won't print in color. It prints fine in black but nothing else. I've bought 2 different sets of color cartridges and I get the same problem. Can anybody offer me some much needed assistance with this issue?

    Hi there Bubbabear and thanks for the super quick response. I've already made sure that the "Print Color images in Black and White" box is unchecked. I was thinking that maybe the contact points are the problem. I've just emailed Lexmark to see if they could maybe give me a few pointers as to what to do or what could be the problem. Ugh, next time I'm going with Canon...

Go into the control panel. Select printers. Move the mouse over to the printer icon. Press the right mouse button. Select properties. Select printing preferences. This is where it changes my mfg but make sure that print in grey scale isn't checked off or any other settings in the finish section that would disable you from printing in color.

If that doesn't work, it could be the contact points going to the cartridge on your printer. It could be the ribbon cable. If these are the case you should take it into a shop to specifically pinpoint what the problem is.

    One thing I found out with Canon is they love to use error codes that only a technician can find the answer for provided they have the service manual.



    At least that the consensus I'm finding on here.

Printer has stopped printing blue


Make sure that you are inserting only genuine Lexmark cartridges in your printer. Removing then re-inserting the color cartridge into the printer is a quick to minor cartridge communication issues.
Make sure that your color cartridge still has substantial ink level for printing using the Lexmark Solution Center software on your computer.
Click Start > Programs > Lexmark X74-X75 > Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center. Check the ink levels.
If color ink level is still good, then it probably just needs some cleaning. Print quality issues can be due to dirty or clogged print cartridge nozzles. From the Maintenance tab in the Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center, click Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a test page. Try to print a color page again to verify that the problem with the blue color is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

Lexmark X75 won't print in color. Tried cleaning print heads, didn't work. What now?


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

X75 My color won't work. Black is fine. I installed a new one at Xmas and it worked fine. I hardly printed anything.. Yesterday the test page with peacock showed no blue and everything came out yellow. ...


run the print head cleaner tool using the lexmark software. since you hardly used the color the print head nozzle is dried up and needs to be clean.
run the print head cleaner atleast 5-10 or more times as needed.

Try to reseat your cartridges. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset itself. If that doesn't help, try to clean your cartridges and check if print quality improves. If you're using Windows, go to Start -> Programs -> Lexmark X74-X75 -> Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center -> Maintenance -> Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks.

Lexmark X75 won't print in colour anymore


When you print a color document do you get any color output ?. You may want to try to print a test color document, consisting of say Red, Green and Blue color blocks. If any of the blocks is missing you may want to replace your color cartridge.

I have an X75 at home and I remember the computer has to be on to copy, so it's really just doing a scan and then an immediate print. Are you copying from the button on the X75 or from the All-In-One Center software on the computer? If the button, try it from the software.

Not printing color


sounds like what you're looking for is not in the printer, but a software issue. try going into your printer properties by either using the Lexmark software, or navigating to it by going to the windows Control panel (if you're using Windows), opening Printers (also known on XP and vista machines as Printers and Faxes), right clicking on your printer and selecting "properties"

there should be an option somewhere, if you navigate around for a bit, that allows you to change wether or not you want to print in Colour, or B&W.

Hope this helps!
