First uninstall the older driver by going to Add/Remove programs in the Control panel. Next, reinstall the downloaded software and plug in the printer only when it tells you to do so in the installer.

If that doesnt work, try a new printer cable cable. If that still does not work, then you may have to take it in for servicing or buy a new one (whichever works out cheaper for you..)

This sounds as if the printer software didn't install properly. Try uninstalling the software, rebooting, the reinstalling the software for the printer. Then you will need to go in and readjust the printer settings.

Printer is working but will not print the ink on the paper


Be sure to allow time for the ink to settle to the bottom of the ink cartridges. Clean the ink heads this may speed up the process. Your printer may be out of ink, in which case you would purchase new ink cartridges.

How to restore your inkjet printer so it prints just like new!


Inkjet printers all operate the same basic way. There are differences but the basics are the same for any inkjet devices. Eventually a buildup occurs enough that your printer doesn't print. Cleaning cycles use more and since inkjet ink is worth about $8000 a gallon, this is a expensive way to clean something.

So what can we do to clean this just a bit cheaper? We need to find a suitable solvent that will dissolve these deposits without harming the print head. And the one that works great and is dirt cheap is good old household white vinegar. Next we want to get some lint free (preferred but not critical) paper towels. And a clean clear table top to work. You may want to put down some newspaper. This isn't that messy to do but it can get the odd bit of dissolved ink on things.

Now we take the printer and remove the paper and the ink cartridges and set aside. The print head is a small stamp sized thing on the bottom of the cartridge holder. Take about 1/3 of a sheet of paper towel and wet it with vinegar. Next you want to get the wetted towel under the print head. It should fit as this is where the paper goes you print. The towel is a thicker but it is soft. move the print head back and forth over the towel. When the towel is covered with ink, change it and repeat. Keep repeating this until the towel comes clean. It will only take a few minutes. When the towel is clean then you are done. Replace the ink cartridges and paper and you are ready to print.

My printer is not printing anything orange, it comes out pink. Just put in new cartridges.


It sounds like your yellow is not printing correctly (probably a clogged nozzle). If your printer has separate cartridges, replace the yellow. If you are using aftermarket cartridges, you should try using OEM cartridges since they are spec'd to the printer. If you are usng aftermarket or reloaded cartridges, the ink may not be up to specs. In any case the yellow ink cartridge needs to be replaced. Make sure to run a deep cleaning and alignment after replacing the cartridge.

Greenish tint to black type


This is a dot matrix printer. The way they work is there is a print head that has a heap of little needles with flat tops on them, and they push out at high speed against the ink ribbon, and the ink ribbon is pushed against the paper to make a dot. Then the pin is retracted, spring loaded.
Pretty amazing that it can work that fast, eh!
So the only thing that can influence the ink colour on your paper is the ribbon.
Are you using original Lexmark ribbons? If so, my recommendation would be to take a sample print to where you got the printer from and get them to demonstrate the print quality of one of these printers, then compare it with yours.
Dot Matrix printers will not produce print as black or as high a quality as a laser printer, for example.
Perhaps the ink ribbons you are using have a less than top quality ink in them, and there is a bit of "bleeding" going on - it can only be the ribbon.
Another thing you can experiment with to get the best print quality is the print head gap - there will (should) be an adjustment, and getting that right will make a difference to print quality.
Hope this helps you.

Lexmark x5470


Let the ink settle in the cartridge for awhile. Make sure no ink is on the outside of the cartridge which adversely effects the signal to the printer.

I have a lexmark 1200 series x1270 all in one and when i try to print something it comes out red. The cartridges are full. Help?


You should have a toolbox utility which will allow you to troubleshoot these settings. Before doing that I would pull the cartridges out and make sure the packaging covers are completely removed from the ink cartridges.
Let me know if this helps

My lexmark 2500 printer won't print. I have a meeting in one hour and it's 45 minutes across town. My black ink cartridge is totally empty but my color cartridge is brand new. Do both cartridges have...


Both cartridges have to have ink them. I know that it sounds stupid, but that is the case. It's also a very bad practice to let your cartridge run completely out. By letting that happen you reduce the chance of it being successfully refilled. It can burn out the cartridges chip, as well. I wish that I had better news for you. Good luck.

Lexmark x3430 need ink cartriage


This is the only information I could find. Didn't your printer come with a black and color ink cartridge? If it did, all you need to do is take the ink cartridge out and write down the numbers written on the cartridge. The only ink cartridge I could positively confirm was the #24 color ink cartridge. The Lexmark website does not list any black ink cartridges for this model. This information was obtained from Officemax.com.
Lexmark - 24 Ink Cartridge - Color
Compatible with Lexmark Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;
Lexmark - 23 Ink Cartridge - Black
Compatible with Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
