Ran out of ink, changed the ink and the printer prints a blank paper...checked the ink everything is good...still nothing printing??


Make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges.
Try to re-seat the cartridges into the printer. Remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > unplug / re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, firmly reinsert the cartridges. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. Open the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer by going to Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > Maintenance tab > Under Select a Maintenace tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. > click Print. Then try to print a document again.

Prints purple instead of black on photos only


My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!

If using aftermarket inks you sometimes have to rap them on a paper towel to break an air lock.If you see ink coming out after rapping them try to print again.If nothing comes out you may have a bad print head or purge pump.
Try cleaning the head (without cartridges)in a 10-20% ammonia warm water mixture for 30-45 min.
Completely dry the head before returning it to printer.
