Question about Lexmark X73 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing mostly blue with lines across page

I have a Lexmark 73 all in one printer. I've solved the problems of communicating between XP and the printer. However, when I try to print images (colour or black and white), the images come out mostly blue and with horizontal lines across the page. I have tried all sorts to fix this problem - I have new cartridges, I have cleaned the nozzles, been through the troubleshooter and still can't solve the problem. Test pages are printing fine.

    I seem to have solved this problem now. Go to Control Panel on PC. Double click Printers & Faxes. Right click on the printer icon and choose properties. When the window appears, click on Colour Management tab. Mine was set at Manual, so I changed it to Automatic and this solved the problem.

Printer has stopped printing blue

Make sure that you are inserting only genuine Lexmark cartridges in your printer. Removing then re-inserting the color cartridge into the printer is a quick to minor cartridge communication issues.
Make sure that your color cartridge still has substantial ink level for printing using the Lexmark Solution Center software on your computer.
Click Start > Programs > Lexmark X74-X75 > Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center. Check the ink levels.
If color ink level is still good, then it probably just needs some cleaning. Print quality issues can be due to dirty or clogged print cartridge nozzles. From the Maintenance tab in the Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center, click Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a test page. Try to print a color page again to verify that the problem with the blue color is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

First print line print fades away across page,

The page size is off. Try readjusting it in your "printing preferences". Otherwise, if it is new, back to the store for a replacement. It really should not do that.

Color printing with green tint

Most probably your ink color RED and BLUE has run out. Refill/replace the color ink may help to solve your problem.

Faint grey lines Every 1/3rd of a printed page

This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge or cleaning roller but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.

Printer is printing pages with blue lines all over

Did you install the drivers and software for the printer? Sounds like a communication problem between your printer and computer.
