# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

I have the same issue....two flashes of the light on the power button the repeat. The carrier is clear, so I don't know what else to do. Also, when I turn the power on, the carrier goes back and forth, hitting the sides very LOUDLY! Anyone else having this issue? This printer is a few years old, so no warranty, and of course, I just bought replacment ink for it, so now it won't work..worked fine till the ink ran out this time! PLEASE HELP!
That piece of plastic that is out of the machine helps the print head to know where its at on the paper think of it as a guide of a sort you may be able to place it back in.I wouldn't turn the printer back on until the part is put back in you may damage it beyond repair.
Normally thats a sign of a printer driver error, remove the printer and go to add/remove programmes and remove the dell/lexmark printer driver.
You will need your installation cd you got with the printer, so re install the software/driver and then re connect the printer when promped and try printing again.
The drivers can be downloaded from here if you have no cdrom, but if the solution doesnt work, then the printer may need replacing, as it's not economical to repair.
