Printers (Lexmark X1100)

Lexmark / X1100
May 7, 2009 at 13:47:58
Specs: Windows XP
My printer won't work. I bought a 16 cartridge for it and I usually use the 17s. There is a no communication message and the printer won't even move the cartridges. I've tried reconnecting wires and restarting my computer but there is no change. What should I do?

Seems like you installed the wrong cartridge.

The cartridge box and the printer manual says that this cartridge is compatible. And sorry for the mess up but the printer is actually Lexmark X1110. If this changes anything.

What is the difference in the two numbers then? Is the new cartridge a genuine Lexmark?

Yes I got it at Walmart and it is an official Lexmark cartridge. I don't understand why it doesn't work.

Did it work before you put the new cartridge in? Why did you install a new cartridge, was it dry?

The old cartridge ran out of ink and it was working like a dream before I got this new cartridge.

You may need to change settings in the printer setup. Or the cartridge isn't compatible. Or the cartridge is defective.

The solution is to buy another cartridge. Preferably the same as the one that was working.

It's compatible and the cartridge is not defective. I don't understand the problem. It works in my brother's printer and it's the same one.

May be the same model but different firmware onboard. Either that or some settings.

So if I never used this before then I may need to install firmware? Where do I get this from? Do I go to the official site?

First thing to do is to compare the printer settings in both yours and you brother's.
