    Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for your model. Try to remove both the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges when prompted. Close the cover and check for any error. If none, try to print again.

    Brand new ink cartridge for Lexmark X3650. Error message to remove tape from cartridge. Tape has been removed. Print alignment prints in only black and same thing on cleaning process.


    You can try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirts and clogs. You can also clean the nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer. If you're using Windows, go to Programs/All Programs > Lexmark 3600-4600 Series folder > From the printer folder, click Maintenance > Clean Cartridges > Print. A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.

    My Lexmark Z 515 printer does not print clearly especially the second part of a piece of paper. How can I clean the printer?


    Hi there,
    To improve print quality
    1 On the operator panel, press Options repeatedly until
    Cartridges appears.
    2 Press the right arrow button until Align appears, and then press
    Select.
    An alignment page prints. Once the alignment sheet prints, your
    automatic alignment is complete.
    You may need to clean the print cartridge nozzles.
    Using the operator panel
    1
    Load paper in the All-In-One.
    2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display.
    3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display.
    4 Press Select.
    A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the
    clogged nozzles.
    5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
    6 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
    7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
    nozzles up to two more times.
    Using the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center
    1
    Load plain paper in the All-In-One. 2 Click Start Programs Lexmark X5100 Series Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center.
    3 Click the Maintenance tab.
    4 From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
    5 Click Print.
    6 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
    7 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
    8 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
    nozzles up to two more times.
    If the print quality does not improve after cleaning the print cartridge
    nozzles, dried ink may be on the nozzles or contacts. To wipe the print
    cartridge nozzles and contacts:
    1 Remove the print cartridges.
    2 Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
    3 Hold the cloth against the gold nozzle area for about three seconds.
    Gently blot and wipe dry in one direction (this prevents the colors in
    the color cartridge from mixing).
    4 Remove the old cartridges
    5 Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
    6 Reinstall the print cartridges, and then print your document again.
    7 If the print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print
    nozzles up to two more times
    8 If print quality is still unsatisfactory, replace your print cartridges.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks
    Have a good day.

    How do I align ink jets?


    Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me:
    (Applies to all printers)

    1. Click Start, Programs, Lexmark Series.
    2. Click Lexmark Control Panel.
    3. Click Print Cartridge installation.
    4. Depending on which cartridges you are using and which printer model you have, select Install Color Cartridge or Install Black Cartridge or Install Photo Cartridge.
    5. Carefully remove the tape covering the printhead of the print cartridge. Important: Be sure to remove all of the tape. Do not touch the copper area on the back of the cartridge.
    6. Insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge carrier.
    7. Push the cartridge back until it clicks into place.

      • If the print cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it is not locked into place. Repeat step 7.

    8. Click the appropriate Cartridge Installed option in the printer software.

      • If you choose to install a new print cartridge, you will be prompted to align your print cartridges. The printer will print a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. Follow these steps to align the cartridges:

        1. On the printed test page, locate the number under the Bi-directional Alignment pattern that comes closest to forming a straight line.
        2. Enter the number as the Bi-directional Alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge screen.
        3. Click OK.

    9. Close the front cover of the printer.

    1 Answer

    Color cartridge stopped working.


    Try cleaning the contacts on both the ink cartridge and the carriage with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. If that does not work, the nozzles on the color ink cartridge may be clogged with dry ink.

    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.

    It nothing works, replace the color ink cartridge.
