  1. I replaced color cartridge as suggested. No color printing. I removed the cartridge and wet the contacts to induce color. That worked, replaced the cartridge...still no color. Any suggestions?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    From what I can gather. This seems to be a fairly common problem with Lexmark printers.

    Sorry, but I don`t know how to fix your problem.

    The only advice I can give is. Ditch the Lexmark, and get a Canon printer. Much more reliable, and a damn site cheaper to run. I.E the cartridges won`t cost you an arm and a leg.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Many thanks...do you think the carriage holding the cartridge may be clogged and prevents the ink from flowing onto the paper?...if so, how can it be cleaned?
