Actually your printhead on the cartridges is probably clogged. I usually take the cartridges out, wet a paper towel and put in a dish and put in microwave for 20 seconds, then put the cartridge printhead on the paper towel for 10 seconds, and then blot with a dry towel. You should see the various colors in the color and black cartridges. Do it several times until ink in freely flowing. Put back in printer and run a clean cycle and try printing normaly.

May be too much info blocking up print memory. Before printing off sites, make sure you clear print queue and slect printer friendly versions. Check to see if your printer has a work online or offline setting in preferences too.

      Blocked print head nozzles
      Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
      Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
      After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required. Also try - Removing the print head, run it under hot water for 2 mins, then let soak for 10 min. then used a can of compressed air to dry thoroughly. It may fix the blocked nozzles.
      A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

      Lexmark S405 isn't printing color when I just bought new cartridges.


      Make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Also, check if the firmware of your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.


      Performing a maintenance on the cartridges would also help. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

      Printer has stopped printing blue


      Make sure that you are inserting only genuine Lexmark cartridges in your printer. Removing then re-inserting the color cartridge into the printer is a quick to minor cartridge communication issues.
      Make sure that your color cartridge still has substantial ink level for printing using the Lexmark Solution Center software on your computer.
      Click Start > Programs > Lexmark X74-X75 > Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center. Check the ink levels.
      If color ink level is still good, then it probably just needs some cleaning. Print quality issues can be due to dirty or clogged print cartridge nozzles. From the Maintenance tab in the Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center, click Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a test page. Try to print a color page again to verify that the problem with the blue color is fixed.
      If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

      Lexmark X75 won't print in color. Tried cleaning print heads, didn't work. What now?


      Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
      If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
      It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

      I cannot print --lexmark x4270. Replaced both cart color and black. What have I done--will scan but not print. Thanks


      Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

      Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
      If that does not work then follow the next step.

      Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

      How do I get my color ink to print on Lexmark x4270 series


      Most drivers default to color. In Windows, go to your printer folder, right click the driver and click on Properties. Check the settings to see if color is selected as default.

      If it is color, your application is overriding the driver color settings and would have to be changed in that before printing.

      Remove the black ink cartridge and examine the print head on it - you will probably find a small piece of tape (very thin) covering the jets - usually blue in color - remove it and reinstall the cartridge.
