If you're using Windows XP, check to make sure that your Lexmark is selected as the default printer.

You can do that by clicking

  • Start -->
  • Settings --> Control Panel --> Printers
If the Lexmark has the checkmark, it is currently the default printer. This means that all applications should print to it.

If this isn't the issue, please respond with the model of your printer, and your operating system, as well as the application you are trying to print from that isn't working.

Why is paper blank


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 3600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.


After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

How do I correct this printing problem? My colored letters on the page print. Black print doesn't print onto the paper. I have a lexmark z615 printer.


Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center by going to the Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > click the Maintenance tab > under Select Maintenance tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks > click Print. The printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that doesn't help, remove the black cartridge and try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirt and clogs. After wiping the nozzles, reinsert the cartridge into the printer. Print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.

My lexmark x2650 printer will not print


Check that your printer is set as default printer in Windows control panel.

If there are duplicates of the printer, remove them, and leave only the printer that is printing the test page.
