Lexmark X75 printing difficulties

I am having trouble printing anything off internet or text document. I can print pictures but nothing else. I recently bought this used and installed colored ink. If black was empty, couldn't I print words in color?

If the black was empty you would notice the difference in the pictures as well, but if the word print is black, it wont print in colour it's supposed to print what you see.

Cant make it work!!!


Unfortunately with the X75, a ‘flashing’ Status LED indicates one of two conditions:
  1. The unit is out of paper (or thinks that it is out of paper)
  2. A problem in another area (I know, not very helpful, but that is straight from the X75 User’s Guide)

I did find a reasonable Trouble Shooting guide in the X75 User Guide and not wanting to plagiarize the Lexmark document, I found two URLs that point to the actual document:

User Guide:

As this unit was recently relocated, the method in which it was relocated could help explain where the problem may be.
  • If the unit was carried by hand and carefully, then there could be a seating problem or loose hardware inside the unit enclosure.
  • If the unit was shipped by a mover (meaning it was packed and boxed) then the problem could be a broken paper tray sensor, a misalignment of the print cartridges, a misalignment in the print cartridge belt, or something related to the ‘print cartridge position sensors’

Something to consider is that just because there is paper in the unit, does not mean that the sensor logic is functioning properly to report this condition.

I hope this helped,

How do you copy without using the software?

...ok, here is the problem solving page for the X75 at

...and here is the user's guide pages and setup info::

Please try the 'test sheet' (or sample printout' first) before you attempt anything else. You DO need the software to access the spooler memory cache and/or store a document before printing. See if you can
run the direct USD test program and test it from your system.

in order to fax your lexmark must be hooked to the phone and to the computer by usb cable.

Lexmark X75 won't print in colour anymore

When you print a color document do you get any color output ?. You may want to try to print a test color document, consisting of say Red, Green and Blue color blocks. If any of the blocks is missing you may want to replace your color cartridge.

My Lexmark X75 will print but not copy. When I

I have an X75 at home and I remember the computer has to be on to copy, so it's really just doing a scan and then an immediate print. Are you copying from the button on the X75 or from the All-In-One Center software on the computer? If the button, try it from the software.

Prints only color ink nothing in black

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer malfunction

2 possible soultions,

1. The color required to print the text ( ie: black or a variation of ) may have run out and needs to be refilled or replaced.

2. The other way that could help, is to select only the text you wish to print, by highlighting the entire text of the email, and then press and hold Ctrl while you press P to bring up printing shortcut menu and then check the "Print selected only" before attempting to print.

This should give you only the selected text, but if your black or the color required to print is empty, it may appear blank on the page, or show a low ink error.

Printing problems

Uninstall every instance of AOL. Go to the tools>internet options>advacnced to se if background printing is checked. Font can be printed as small as 1024x768 on some printers. The X75 is a buggy printer and Lexmark has had several problems with this model.
