Poor print quality


Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Lexmark products work best with original supplies. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured, or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
Check your cartridge ink levels. From the printer operator panel, go to Maintenance > View Ink Levels. Replace the cartridge that has low ink level. If your ink levels are still substantial for printing and you are using genuine Lexmark supplies, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

Original Vs Compatible Ink Cartridges - Which is Better?


If you will be printing large numbers of documents and other files then compatibles make good financial decision.
Compatibles are cheaper than originals. However you should check that you are getting good quality compatible ink cartridges.
As long as you are printing at least once a week then compatibles will serve you well without problem. To keep your printer in tiptop condition you should swap for an original cartridge once in a few months. This may seem like a foolish idea when you are saving money, but an original cartridge will help clean your print head and keep your machine working optimally.
If left for a long time ink can dry out in the cartridge and on the print head causing damage. Original ink usually has extra chemicals and agents to prevent this from happening. As you are likely to have to buy a new compatible cartridge if this happens any cost saving you achieved lost immediately.

How to print using black ink only on Espon dx5050?


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges??

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


If you have Genuine Epson Cartridges, and have ink in ALL THE CARTRIDGES, to print in black only, Make the following settings on the control panel. SEE BELOW:

Select the number of copies.
Select l [Plain Paper].
Select the paper size you loaded.
To make a color copy, press the
x StartE[Color] button.
To make a black-and-white copy,
press the x Start D [B&W] button.

IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE
BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.


The next step would be to disassemble and clean the Pads/Heads.

Put in a compatible red ink cartridge but no red ink printed. Can't put in the original cartridge in to verify the printer as it is detected as empty. However, for other colors that I replaced with same...


So, is the new cartridge "compatible", or is it not as compatible as they claim?

Try a "genuine" replacement cartridge.

Start the software that came with the printer.
There is a "ink-jet test" utility, and a "head-cleaning" utility.
Run each of them, to see if anything is "clogged".

Wrong colours!


Hi Dannydoda,

I understand that, you are using different compatible ink cartridges and having problem with colors.

HP printers has a small built in firmware, which can detect the original ink cartridges and the ink level.

Using other compatible ink cartridges may damage the print heads of the printer.

I suggest you to replace the ink cartridges with original or Genuine HP cartridges.

You can also try some of the steps to fix the issue as given in the web link.

please click on the web link given below and perform the steps carefully.

This should fix the issue.
Have a great day!
