Take a l;ook at the slot where the cartridge goes. Does it have any dried ink or ink blobs. If so you can turn off the machine and unplug it and clean the slots with0a little rubbing alc0hol on a Qtip. At the same time, make sure that there ae no bent or broken wire holders and that the cartridge seats well. Also look at the cartridge itself. Is it leaking?

When you have finished this try turning off and unplugging your printer for several minutes and see if it will reset itself.

It says I have no black ink but it's a new cartridge


I have an MG2560 which did the same thing twice. The first time, there was still a bit of tape on the electronic connections on the ink cartridge. Once I cleaned this off, it worked fine. The second time, no matter what I did, the error message kept saying no black ink. I took the cartridge back to the shop and got another one. I fitted it and the printer worked perfectly.

Make sure you are inserting a genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to insert a different known working cartridge, maybe your old black cartridge, to determine if your new cartridge is faulty. If inserting your old black cartridge gives you a message saying "very low ink" or something to that effect, then most probably there's something wrong with the new black cartridge. Have it replaced with a new one from the store where you bought it from. You may also contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

  • Store the cartridges in an air-tight container, such as the storage unit you received with your photo cartridge, or dispose of them properly.

  • If you are installing new ink cartridges, remove the sticker and transparent tape from the back and bottom of each ink cartridge.
    NOTE: The following illustration shows a black cartridge and a color cartridge (used for normal printing). For photo printing, use a photo cartridge and a color cartridge.

    Insert the new ink cartridges. Make sure the black or photo ink cartridge is secure in the left ink cartridge carrier, and the color ink cartridge is secure in the right ink cartridge carrier.

    My lexmark z611 only prints blank pages with nothing on them, i bought a brand new ink cartridge that is black ink for it and it says it is low on ink for some odd reason but when i print things in color...


    Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

    Lexmark P315 InkJet Photo Printer Ink Cartridge Problem


    Hi, I know this might sound really bad but have you made sure that you have taken ALL the little bits of plastic and covers that are sometimes on the new cartidges?

    Also are you using the exact same cartridge as before?

    Another thing you could do to bypass the problem is to have your one refilled. That will at least fix the problem for the immediate.

    Does your printer have some software where you can run a clean print head and do an align and other stuff. If so you could try those too.
    Lets us know.
