    Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for your printer model. Try to remove the cartridges from your printer. While the cover is open, check for any loose stip (transparent encoder strip) or any foreign objects that can block the cartridge carrier's path. If none, unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert your cartridges.

SOURCE: X2480 unable to bypass print/scan of alignment page

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer. 


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

SOURCE: Lexmark X2580 won't print after cartridge refill

I know this is something that you may not want to hear... I used to work for Pitney Bowes fixing postage machines.. these machines have inkjet printers in them. If you use refills other words ink not from the manufacturer it will cause you problems. I know that it might work a few times without problems... but I have seen it first hand at Pitney Bowes... If you don't use the manufacters ink it will destroy your printers. In your case go back to using the Lexmark cartridge... see if that solves the problem. Which it very well could work off the Lexmark brand again. Printer manufactures do this on purpose you have to buy their ink! In any case good luck.

SOURCE: Printer keeps showing : Press

I have found that if I put in an old aligned page the printer reads it as and the alignment is accepted. As for the cancelled message being in the window, I have had this problem too. I've ignored it and selected the copy button and it took the command. The only problem with hitting cancel is that you cannot turn off your printer. Every time you do you have to repeat the aligning and cancellation process.

The Lexmark x5495 printer is not printing correctly. The printout is not aligned properly. The printout is crooked. How can you solve this problem?


Try to re-seat your cartridges and make sure they are properly inserted in the cartridge carrier.
If that doesn't help, please do the Align Cartridges function on your printer. From the printer operator panel, while on Copy mode, press the Menu button > Tools > Maintenance > Align Cartridges. You printer will then print a test page that will help align the cartridges.
After the page is printed, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed. Thanks.

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.

Lexmark X4650 InkJet Printer black prints fuzzy. Color is fine, but the black appears out of focus.


Try to check and make sure your black ink level is still good and not about to go empty. On the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Maintenance > Ink Levels.
If the black ink level is still good, make sure the cartridges are aligned. Try this approach. On the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Maintenance > Align Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them as well as align the cartridges.
Try to print a document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
