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)

try turning off the printer then reboot the PC, then turn on the printer if this doesn't work try the software may not be installed properly. Try the following:
1 Right-click the My computer icon.
For Windows XP, click Start to access the My computer icon.
2 Click Properties.
3 For Windows 98 or Windows Me, click the Device Manager tab.
For Windows 2000 or Windows XP, select the Hardware tab, and then click

shown here, highlight them and, then press the Delete key.

“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.

MY X1240 will not print the text .


Did you run test page AFTER new cartridges installation?
Please print text from different programs: Noterpad, Wordpad, Office word, excell, Browser etc..
If you see text in some other program check settings in "text not printing" program : MSWord has a setting in Options blocking texts.
If you never see a text, check "Printer Preferences.." different from "Printer Properties.."
Let we know if fixed by scoring this solution or tell us results for any further support.

Printer wont print, but it is going through the motions.


If ink cartridges are new, perform print head or maintenance cleaning at least 3x consecutively.

Printer not working


Try changing the cartridges for sh*t's and giggles. Some cartridges are refills and do not work. They say 50% of refilled cartridges work. Pretty low stats if you ask me. Let me know how it goes.

Prints a few lines, then blank


This is worth attempting to discuss with Lexmark's Tech Support line. Or take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com
