Try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the printer control panel.

  1. Load paper.
  2. Press Copy.
  3. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display.
  4. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display.
  5. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
  6. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
Also, check your ink levels. Make sure your ink levels are substantial for printing.

Make sure to set the correct paper setting on the printer or the Lexmark software before sending the print job. Adjust the printer's paper guide to the correct envelope dimension.

When i receive a fax everything is perfect,when i send a fax it reaches the destination where im sending it as a blank sheet of paper


Hi,

If you are able to receive fax and it is printed out fine, there is nothing wrong with your printer. If the other person is receiving blank fax, you may be placing the documents to fax in opposite way, If you are placing the paper upside ( with text ), try to face it down and fax. It should work.

Ron

Lexmark x6170 stopped printing text will only pint images


First, print a test page from the printer's menu and see if the black lines and text look okay on that. If there is no or poor black printing, you need to replace the black cartridges or try cleaning the cartridge's nozzle with rubbing alcohol. If that looks fine you need to check the printer's settings in its properties on the system lift of printers.

Paper has black marks only on the edge


There are several issues that will cause a problem like that.
1, As X box mentioned is a problem with the drum. That is part of what is called the print cartridge or imaging unit. There is most likely a shutter or opening in the cartridge which you can shine a flash light at and see if the defect is visible. If so you will have to replace that cartridge. I would suspect that is the most likely issue.
2. There may be something in the paper path. A small piece of paper riped off in it, something else, a piece of tape, label, etc may have made it into the machine, that will make contact with the paper and smear the image.
3. Lastly, your fuser roller may be bad causing the reprint.
How to determine where the issue is, shut the machine off while it is printing and jam the paper in the image area. See if the defect is on the paper before the fuser. Eliminates the fuser ....
