Did you remove the the tape covering the contacts? Of course you did. Re-install new cartridge. Open the lexmark all-in-one center software and in the top left corner the third option is "Maintain/Troubleshoot". Click on "Maintain or fix quality Problems". Click on "install new print cartridge" and follow the instruction.

What to do


Lexmark X4270 gives an error message...black cartridge missing. It is not missing. what is the problem

Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark black cartridge. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
Try to reinsert your black cartridge and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier. If error comes back up right after placing it in the printer, then it could be a faulty cartridge. Try to replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. If you are already using a genuine Lexmark cartridge, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

My lexmark x4270 constantly say's black cartidge missing..but I just placed a new cartridge in...please help me!!!!

Make sure you are inserting a genuine Lexmark cartridge.
Try to re-insert the cartridge into the printer. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
Should you still experience the problem even with a genuine Lexmark cartridge, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.


First time using, says error #1200

The 1200 error indicates that either the cartridge/s is not properly installed or snapped in the cartridge carrier, the encoder strip (transparent strip behind the cartridge carrier) is out of place or something is blocking the cartridge carrier's path. This article 1200 Error Message on a Lexmark X4250/X4270/F4270 All-In-One will help you identify and resolve the issue.

The lexmark x4270 does not print black. I just put in a new cartridge.

I replaced the black ink cartridge and I keep getting a message saying that there's no black cartridge. What should I do?

Hi Good day!!! try to re insert your black cartridges maybe it is not properly inserted that's why your printer did not recognizing it.
Don't forget to vote thanks!!!

I need help!!!!!

Yes that should be the proper cartridge for that machine. We at Cartridge World have started to notice that some machine's are rejecting Lexmark non-prebate cartridges. I would suggest getting a refund from where ever you purchased the cartridge that is not working and trying a Lexmark "prebate"or "return program" original cartridge.

I have a lexmark X4270 fax machine, and I have just got a new black ink cartridge. The old one was a lexmark 71 the man at Quill said to get a lexmark 75 hi-yield. so I did my machine keeps saying black...

Did Quill sell you a "OEM" (Original Manufacturer's Equipment) or a cartridge a third party cartridge?

If it is a third party ink or cartridge, then that's your problem. Lexmark does not condone the use of third party ink or cartridges. This is considered to be product tampering by Lexmark and they will void the printer warranty if damage results from the use of these type cartridges.

I do apologize for the bad news, but I do ask that you do not shoot the messenger. :-)

I keep getting cartridge error or it prints a blank page. There is no tape on the cartridge and they are installed properly. It prints sometimes but not all the time Printer keeps saying cartridge error

This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.

Lexmark x5470, alignment error

hi alyciaadamo;
im not sure but i think uninstalling and reinstalling will not get the printer set back to default settings. can you navigate through the menu even if you see the error? press the cancel or something? if you can,look for reset factory settings.

also try to remove all the ink cartridge, and power cable from the printer, wait for 30mins and try it back.

I just want to know if your using genuine lexmark ink for you printer. :)
