Try to reseat your cartridges. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset itself. If that doesn't help, try to clean your cartridges and check if print quality improves. If you're using Windows, go to Start -> Programs -> Lexmark X74-X75 -> Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center -> Maintenance -> Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks.

Black printing very faint or not at all, cleaning print head makes little difference Brand new Cartridge


Sometimes it will print faint black even if there is a new black cartridge, because the color cartridge needs to be replaced as well.

Make sure that the cartridges are genuine Kodak cartridges, as well, for maximum performance and reliability.

Cleaning heads can use up a lot of ink, by the way.

My printer is printing very faint, in both colour and black & white. The cartridges are new. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?


This might be sometimes to the low black ink present in it and very often you would assume that the reason is that there is low black ink in the printer. If the black ink is low then you could replace it with a new one.

Just changed brand new black ink cartridge but printout for black is very faint even though the best print quality is chosen. All other coloured ink cartridges are more than half filled. Pls help.


You got it! Just take out the ink cartridges and take a cotton ball and dabble a small amount of alcohol on the ink outlets, then place back in and print right away, it is more than likely tha the port is dry. Please let me know if I can help further, a pleasure to help out! Guy

The black ink print is very very faint


Indicates that the printer is using only color ink to create a black color. Check printer settings to see if you can set it to use only black cartridge. Also try printing with only the black cartridge inside if the printer permits, this way you can be sure if the black print head is faulty.
