Message reads "cartridge short press power key"


The error indicates that one or both of the cartridges has a short circuit. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Make sure the printer is on.

2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.

3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I installed new color and black ink cartridges and keep getting: color cartridge short. Press power key. Hence, the printer will not work.


It could be a "short-circuit" type of electronic problem inside the colour cartridge.
Turn the printer off.
Remove the colour cartridge.
Purchase a new colour cartridge.
Insert it.
Turn the printer on.
If you still get the error, take the printer to a qualified technician.

Carrier Stall is the error


Hi,
Please do the following..

To check the cartridge carrier:
  1. Unplug the printer.
  2. Move the cartridges to the left by hand and then take them out.
  3. Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier. Do you still receive a Carrier Stall error message?
  4. If not, put the cartridges back into the carrier and snap them in at the back. The message should no longer appear.
If the power light on the printer is not blinking, the error message may be caused by a communication error. Do the following:
  1. Remove any other devices attached to the USB/LPT port.
  2. Uninstall the Lexmark printer.
  3. Connect the printer directly to the PC and ensure that power is being supplied to the printer.
  4. Reinstall the printer.
Thank you....

No printing


  1. Snap the cartridges in and out of the printer a couple of times.
  2. Clean the copper contacts with a dry cloth.
If this did not work then you need to give for service shop ,if they charge more than $50, you can buy new printer for the same charge..

Printer does not connest to pc


I think "Cartridge short" is refering to a short circuit to the ink cartridges, remove them and clean the contacts, and try again, if this persists try replacing the cartridges
