My Lexmark prevail pro 705 has stopped printing anything colour even after i have replaced all the cartridges??

This article on How to Troubleshoot the Vizix Ink Technology will help fix print quality problems on your printer. To run the Deep Clean Printhead function on your printer -> on the printer operator panel, press Setup -> Maintenance -> select Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print the test page. Hope this helps. Thanks.

I have a Lexmark 1200 printer. Colour promlems

It could be that the cartridge has become dry.
you have to try several head cleans using the printer software and if that doesnt help then the cartridge needs to be replaced.

My lexmark printer wont print, goes through the motions but will NOT PRINT!!!!

Check your owner's guide (or download if you don't have it) for instructions for printing a test page. Or, open the Lexmark software and go to maintenance to print a test page.
If it still comes out blank, then the printhead/cartridge is either empty or completely clogged.
If you are not getting any flak from the Lexmark software about being empty, remove the cartridge(s) and set them in a 1/4" of household ammonia for a half-hour, blot them on an absorbent paper towel to see if they produce a stain, clean any residual ammonia from the cartridge(s) and reinstall them. Your printer will likely ask if you have replaced cartridge(s) and answer 'yes.' This should start the cleaning/realignment routines and finally, maybe even printing.

My black ink wont work black ink is weak and isn't evenly distributed on the page, all other colours print fine

Replace the cartridge or get it refilled. If it is full you can take a Q-Tip and some rubbing alcohol and clean the head off. This has worked for me in the past.

Lexmark Z600 ONLY print test pages

Seemes very daft, and sounds like a twit, but not really.

When I recieved the new cartridge I placed it in the correct cartridge retainer in the printer matching up the dark green colour of the cartridge and the top clip, and it printed nothing even after a tryed re-seating it.
So I placed it in the other thinking maybe I somehow might have placed it in the wrong slot, so I placed it in the other (Colour), and set that up as I did the other, and it printed a blurred page but then stopped printing.
After that I then placed it back in the other cartridge retainer, set it up as the previous times when it did not work, and then it worked.

Seems strange and simple, but it did not work the first time at all, and after faffing with it finally did.

This might help someone, and then again might not.

You can try another USB port. The USB port may be disabled that you are using.
