Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for your printer. Try to remove your cartridges from your printer. Close the cover. Unplug and replug your printer into th power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert your cartridges. If that doesn't help, try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. Open the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer -> From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Click Print. A page will then be printed, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.

Prints no ink


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 1300 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center / All-In-One 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.

Do my pages print out blank


It could be that your cartridge nozzles need some cleaning. Long period of non-usage can lead to drying of ink and clogging in the cartridge nozzles. To clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark X1200 Series folder > select Lexmark Solution Center. From the maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Then try to print your document again to verify that the cartridges are functioning now.

A faint line shows up down the middle of the page, when printing a photo


from cnet review of the product

  • Unfortunately, as with the Z1420, fast print speeds come at the cost of print quality with the Z1300. Black text prints, though nicely dark, were beset by obvious jaggedness. The color graphics print had a slightly faded look to it and color blocks showed graininess and faint horizontal striations. Barcode-style patterns were muddled, too. For our tests, we printed color 4x6 photos with the standard black and tricolor cartridges, as Lexmark did not include photo ink tanks with the test unit. The colors were dull, details were hazy, and again, the entire print was marred by graininess and faint horizontal lines. That said, nobody buys a $25 printer to print photos for framing or to create displays for a classroom science project. A $25 printer is a convenience item for occasional reference prints, and as such, the Z1300 does its job.

Print half of full page


If the printer starts to print and stop in the middle check the eletricity of your place, this may have a variation. If the printer prints a half page and give you the paper, with no jam, check the cartridges and then the main board.

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.
