    Hey Joyce. Seriously. Its tough to fix. The only way is to replace the whole cradle via Lexmark and they are expensive. Better buy another printer. these days, a color and black in tank together costs more than a brand new printer 3 in 1 with half filled ink tanks included. Trust me. Plus you get a renewed warranty! Aha!

Please tell me how do I change the ink cartridge in my Epson TX650?


1) Looking at the front of the printer/scanner there is an indent on the left hand.

2) Lifting up on this portion should reveal the inside of the printer.

DO NOT touch the flat cable inside the printer, DO NOT force the lid, it should open easily.

3) The ink cartridge is underneath the plastic cover in the back right-hand side of the printer. Gently pull up on the cover until it swings open.

4) pinch the clips holding the ink cartridge in the printer and pull up.

5) Unpack the new ink cartridge.

6) Remove the tape that is on the ink cartridge.

(If you forget this step the printer won't print. If that happens, remove the new cartridge, remove the tape and then reinsert the cartridge)

7) Insert the ink cartridge and push gently until it clicks into place.

8) Close the cover over the ink cartridges, and then close the printer cover.

9) Follow any direction on the front display (hit OK)

How do i install the ink cartridge in my lexmark z35 printer


Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

Can i use a lexmark 24 color ink cartridge for a lexmark x 3470?


The Lexmark X3470 uses the following color cartridge: 18C0781

Most color cartridges only use 3 colors (Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow) to be able to print 24bit color prints.

Hope that helps.

My hp deskjet 3745 wont print because it is off line. how do i get it back on line and for it to stay that way. this happens often.


hello lblb45. Under control panel - printers and faxes - doble click on your HP printer and you will see the status of the printer (either printer offline, out of ink, or out of paper, etc. Click on printer option on the top and unselect the "Use Printer Offline" option. That usually happens because the print spooler service looses connection to the printer at some point. Did you try with another USB cable or reinstall the drivers? I hope this helps.

I have a pixma mp830. I try to print in color but it comes out mostly pink with lines everywhere. I have taken all ink cartridges and replaced them with new ones. I took out the holder for the cartridges...


Hi and good day, I have been in an ink refilling for almost 6 years. Base on the problem that you encountered, I also encounter it several times. The thing that you have mentioned about cleaning can be helpful if your ink cartridge's printer head is still good.

Now, you do the cleaning in the maintenance, if you have not done it. If the print does this same thing, I conclude that the problem is the printer head of your cartridge. Your ink cartridges printer head have it's life span. If your printer is EPSON the printer head is attached to the printer right? then you need to replaced it with a new printer. But if your printer is canon, you an buy a new ink cartridges with a good printer head status.

Hope this help and if my answer doesn't help.. hope I could get more questions that could help me make my answer clear to you.
