Question about Lexmark Z600 InkJet Printer

Cartridge holder broken

The small plastic clip that holds the cover onto the colour cartridge has broken. As I also have three other Lexmark printers that all seem to have the same cartirdge holders (and potential problem) can I replace the cartridge holder, please? If so how (is it just a case of undoing the retaining screws) and where can I obtain the holders from? Best wishes.... Neil (neil@rta-investigations.co.uk)

You could try the Lexmark parts store at

https://parts.lexmark.com/wpo-catalog/US_en/search_by_part

If they do not sell the part, if I were you I wopuld visit the second hand stores in your area (Goodwill,Value Village, Salvation Army,etc) and see if I could find a used printer with the part intact for a few dollars.

Where is the toner cartridge and how do I find it?


Plug the Lexmark 2600 into an electrical outlet and press the power button. Allow the unit to power up. The power button will turn green when ready.


Turn on the Printer and Open the top cover of the Lexmark 2600 by lifting the cover upward. you will find all cartridges down there.



Now you see how to replace them


Remove the black ink cartridge from it's packaging. Remove the tape from the black ink cartridge first and place the cartridge into the left ink cartridge holder. Press the cartridge down into until you hear it lock into place. Close the ink cartridge holder lid by pressing it down firmly. This secures the ink cartridge in place.


Remove the colored ink cartridge from the packaging and remove the tape from the cartridge. Place the cartridge into the right cartridge holder and press down until it clicks into place. Push down the cartridge holder lid.


Close the lid of the Lexmark 2600 and allow the print cartridges to align. The power light will be blinking while the cartridges are being aligned; once the power light turns solid, the printer is ready for use.

Drum error. slide green tab in each color


1. power down the printer.
2. remove all color cartridges from their slots.
3. inside the color slot, you will see a green slide that will not move until you pick up the plastic cover.
4. rotate the plastic cover forward.
5. slide the green slide 3 or 4 times. (DO NOT TOUCH SMALL WIRES!)
6. return slide to original position.
7. snap the plastic cover back in place
8. return each color cartridge to it's slot.
9. replace color cartridge holder back to printer.
10. close all covers
11. turn printer back on.

If you still get the "move green slide" error, just repeat these steps

This took me about 10 minutes for the process, after understanding what the "green slide" meant.

How do I get the cartridge out to replace with new one???


The steps of replacing cartridge with a new one.

1) First You keep the printer power on. Open the printer cover - you will find the cartridges holder will come in proper place (the position varies printer to printer) so that you can easily remove the old cartridge.

2) Press gently the upper front portion of the cartridge you want to remove out of the printer holder - you will find it will be unlocked - just remove the cartridge carefully. (in some printer there is a cover on top of the cartridge holder which you can open to perform the step 2.

3) Unpack the new cartridge.

4) Don't forget to remove the plastic tape from the cartridge head (Ex.in HP, Lexmark cartridges etc).

5) Look the printer holder and look to the cartridge - you can easily decide the position of the cartridge in the holder.

6) Gently and carefully  put the cartridge in the holder - press the upper portion of the cartridge from front side - the cartridge will be locked autometically in the holder.

7) Put the printer cover in proper place. 

8) Print Now - it will print test page first. Now print as usual.

I hope the solution is helpful to you. Thanks for using fixya.com.

How to replace ink cartridge


I hope you already got your cartridge replaced. If not, here's a link to the Lexmark website on How to Install the Cartridges in the Lexmark X5150. This also applies on replacing cartridges. http://bit.ly/akqijS. Follow the instructions.
In some cases, the ink cartridge carrier won't position itself in the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the white tape in the middle inside the printer. The other end of it is connected to the carrier. Gently slide the carrier to the center. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Hope this helps.

Hi there

You can try this but it lots to do but may help

This message may be resolved by resetting the unit. Please follow these
steps:

1. With the printer powered on, open the cover. The ink will move to
the left hand side.

2. Push down on the end of the black cartridge. A clicking noise will
be heard.

3. Slide the cartridge out of the holder towards you.

4. Push down on the end of the colour cartridge. A clicking noise will
be heard.

5. Slide the cartridge out of the holder towards you.

6. Once both cartridges are removed, unplug the power to the printer
(without turning it off).

7. Reconnect the power cord.

8. Turn on the printer.

9. Open the cover. The carriage that holds the ink will move to the
left hand side.

10. Make sure the orange cap is off of the bottom of the black
cartridge.

11. Place the black cartridge in the bottom of the printer.

12. Slide the black cartridge back until is cannot go back any further.

13. Push up on the end of the black cartridge, a clicking noise should
be heard.

14. Make sure the orange cap is off of the bottom of the colour
cartridge.

15. Place the colour cartridge in the bottom of the printer.

16 Slide the colour cartridge back until is cannot go back any further.

17. Push up on the end of the colour cartridge, a clicking noise should
be heard.

Please note that the colour cartridge will stick out further than the
black cartridge.

Close the cover. The printer should make some noise for a few moments,
and then return to standby.

If the message persists, to clear the low ink-warning message, press and
hold down the button for at five seconds, and then release
it. This will disable the ink detection until that cartridge has been
replaced.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Lexmark x7170 printer cartridge error


Remove the color ink cartridge and double check that the plastic tape, which you removed from the cartridge is completely removed. I've noticed that sometimes a small piece of the protective tape tears and stay stuck on the cartridge causing the printer to give a false error. When replacing the cartridge be sure its fully inserted into the color cartridge holder and the locking mechanism locks securely.

Black cartridge is not being recognized, amber light blinking


There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.
