This problem is caused by dried ink. The ink cartriges or the cartridge carriers are caked with dried ink, either inside or on the outside. You need to physically clean the cartridge nozzles (usually silver) and the cartridge electronic board (usually gold) with a rubbing alcohol wetted paper towel (removing the dried ink) OR To clean the electronic boards (usually gold) on the cartridge carrier (where the cartridge mates against), using the a similar alcohol wetted paper towel. If physical cleaning does not fix it ( 85% says it will) then you need to run thru the printer deep cleaning procedure or buy replacement cartridges. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

This could happen for a number of reasons. The worst case could mean a malfunction that will require service but there a few things to try before jumping to such expansive unpleasent conclusions: 1. Use the Hp tools to clean the cartridges and realigh the device 2. You may want to try to physically clean or even replace the ink cartridges. they are known to brake and cause such symptoms. Try to borrow a cartridge from friend to test the device before spending money. Good Luck

This is the same problem. You need to run the cleaning cycle on the printer. Go to Control Panel > Printers > Select your Printer > Printer Properties > Maintenance > Clean Print Nozzles.

Lexmark x9350 has horisontal lines and gaps

horizontal lines mean that there are inks overflowing on the print head and has some ink on a part of the printer where the paper is coming out while gaps are clogged heads. You may need to clean the print heads. I suggest to go to your local store and get kleenex with some distilled water and wipe the head area to take the lines out. for the gaps, just do a standard cleaning of printer heads using the software provided with your printer.

How to clean Lexmark Z1320 printer.

hi..

You can clean the cartridge using the following steps:

Click on "Start," go to "All Programs," and down to the Lexmark. Click on the "Solution Center." Next, click on the "Maintenance" tab. Select "Clean to fix horizontal strips." This will produce a printed page.

The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.

If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:

1. Please open the "Solution Center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge (or cartridges) from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. Also, wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier).
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" one more time. If this fails to address the problem, the entire procedure may need repeating.

try out..
