Have you checked the printer settings? Maybe set to use black only.

Hi! Thank you for your reply,
Yes I have checked the printer settings, set to use all available ink. Looks like I may have to contact Lexmark.

Have you tried a test print directly from the printer itself? That will tell you if it's a printer issue or a Windows issue.

Hi,

Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Thanks everyone for all your suggestions, it turns out there was a fault on the printed circuit of the printer head. Lexmark were able to get me a full refund as the printer had a 3 year guarantee.
