I ran out of both
Lexmark printers usually require both cartridges to have ink left in them to continue printing. But try to press the Cancel button for the Alignment process (this is not recommended). Then try to print a document again to verify that you are able to continue printing without an empty color ink.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your color cartridge with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

Print cartridge would not move
the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even
when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:
Unplug the printer from the power source.
With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier
assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to
the center of the printer.
Remove the used cartridges.
Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.
Plug the printer back to the power source.

Describe your X2690 All-In-One InkJet
Why do you want to reset it? For not using original Lexmark Cartridges? A lot of the newer printers will not work with compatible cartridges, regardsless of what the sellers of such cartridges tells you. You might want to try the following:
Power off the printer.
Hold the cancel (red) button in while powering on. Keep the cancel button in for atleast 10 seconds. On some Lexmark printers this will reset the cartridge error, but it does not work on all Lexmarks

NOT PRINTING COLOR (INK LEVEL
Your color cartridge may need some cleaning. If you're using Windows, go to Start menu > Prorgrams/All Programs > Lexmark 2600 Series > Solution Center. Go to Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If problem continues, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
