Do an internal test print from the printer itself. If it prints a self test page O.k., then there is a communication problem either with the driver or the application.

Lexmark 730 not printing


Regarding the Lex1 cartridge's no printing/severe fade (or similar) during printing, my answers are provided below:

For the poor print quality problem (degraded image quality) you are observing, we suggest you first visit the "Print Quality" page of the "General Information" section of the Inkjet 411 website and follow the suggestions provided: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1432

A. 1. Cartridge & Printer maintenance should also be evaluated - ensure both ink cartridges and flexible driver contact cables (where the cartridge interfaces to the carriage inside the printer) are thoroughly clean: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.2. Perform a hot-water flush on the suspect ink cartridge, refer to video procedure here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.3. Run a quick test print to evaluate cartridge performance (i.e. 4-color test print):

For information on North American ink refill services (for Lexmark 1, 2 and 3 ink cartridges) at a major retailer near you (should you wish to save ~50% on ink costs), general printing problem resolutions or advanced Lexmark printer diagnosis procedures (advanced cartridge diagnostic tests/cartridge error bypass & printer reset methods, etc.), please visit Inkjet411: http://www.inkjet411.com

Ran out of ink, changed the ink and the printer prints a blank paper...checked the ink everything is good...still nothing printing??


Make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges.
Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > unplug / re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, firmly reinsert the cartridges. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. Open the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer by going to Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > Maintenance tab > Under Select a Maintenace tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. > click Print. Then try to print a document again.

Folkpottery@bellsouth.netmy z705 is 3yrs old and takes print command ,goes through the print mode but nothing on paper.refilled black cartridge but still nothing on paper?cartridge blots ink on paper...


It could be a cartridge, hardware or a software problem. Try to print a hardware test page on the printer. Please follow the steps in this article from the Lexmark website How to Perform the Hardware Test on the Lexmark Z705 Photo Jetprinter. This is a good way to start the troubleshooting. Keep me updated. Thanks.

Yes, please make sure that empty cartridges are full but this time while your computer is powered up, try disconnecting it for 10-20mins then reconnect it and power it back on. This should definitley solve that issue.

Nothing prints out on paper.


Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Have you removed the tear off tape from top of cartridges, it lets the air in and ink flows.

My lexmark printer series 6170 will not print.


For the tech to give you that response was indeed to the point, but of little use to most people.

There is a nozzle cleaning utility in the Lexmark Solutions Center. Use that to clean the nozzles of your ink cartridges. The Lexmark Solutions Center is installed on your computer. You can find it in the Windows Start Menu under "All Programs" in a folder marked "Lexmark".

If your printer has been sitting without use for more than a few weeks, the nozzles may be too clogged with dry ink to clean by conventional means. The only thing left to do is to replace the ink cartridges.

"Printing" fine, but no ink is output.

Black ink


Did you remove the tape from the cartridge when you installed it?
Has it ever printed black from this cartridge before?
You may need to wipe the cartridge with a moist paper towel at the place where the ink comes out. If there is dried up ink the nozzles could be clogged. Try running the Lexmark Solutions Center from the Windows Start menu (Start -> Programs -> Lexmark 1100 Series) and make sure the black ink level is good. You can also select "Clean Nozzles" in there and that may help.

No ink coming from cartridges.


Sounds like maybe the nozzles are clogged up. Try using the printer maintenance utility to "Clean Nozzles". I think for most Lexmark printers it is call the "Lexmark Solution Center" in your Windows Start Menu. If that doesn't work, try maybe wiping the cartridge with a damp paper towel at the place where the ink comes out.
