Hello everybody. Try this :

Go to the printer properties by right clicking the default printer icon on Printer & Faxes in the Control Panel.

Go to Advanced Options and select the option that reads "Print Directly to the Printer."

It worked for me :p . the printer was not printing from Word and other programs but was printing test pages ok and the ink cartridges are new.

How fast did you refill it! Could be air bubbles. Place cartrige print head on a damp towel, see if ink comes out...leave to weep for a few minutes, then reinstall.
if you are using a generic ink, could be the wrong type of ink. Many printers now, use pigmented ink. Generic is dye based (old style)

1 Right-click the My computer icon.
For Windows XP, click Start to access the My computer icon.
2 Click Properties.

For Windows 2000 or Windows XP, select the Hardware tab, and then click

Can not get the color to work in my lexmark x1240 printer to work? we tried to refill the old cartrage first but it leaked after a couple uses than we bought a new cartrage but it won't work.


Make sure that you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges and not refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges from the 3rd parties. Lexmark products work best with original supplies. If you are using genuine cartridges yet the problem persists, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

How to replace the ink cartridge


1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.


2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.


3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.


4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.


5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

Printer do not recognise color catrige


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

All in one printer does not scan or copy


If the Ink Status is showing a ? symbol after you have replaced the tanks, you just need to tell the printer that you replaced tanks ,

To do that , open your lexmark solution centre from the Lexmark start menu group.

Which black cartridge does this need?


Yes you can refill the cartridges. Also Walgreen's refill cartridges now. $10. for black and $15. for colr cartridge refills. I've been using their refills and they work fine. It's less mess that doing it myself. And they use good quality ink... But you can refill them.They also carry universal refill kits at walgreen also. Also the cartridges are not hard to find you can order them at several places online. Google x1240 for sites. Also Staples sell the cartridges.
