Printing
For information about setting up your printer, refer to the
setup sheet. See page 26 for a diagram of the printer parts.
Printing with your printer is as easy as:

Insert the appropriate print cartridge (see next section).
Load the print media (see page 2).
Customize the printer settings (see page 4).
Print your document (see page 6).
Step 1: Insert the appropriate print cartridge
Your printer uses one cartridge at a time: either a black
cartridge or a color cartridge. Your printer came with a color
cartridge, Lexmark part number 17G0060. You may also
purchase a black cartridge, Lexmark part number 17G0050.
• To print your entire document using the cartridge already
installed in the printer, select Automatic from the
Document/Quality tab of the Printer Properties.
• To print the black pages of your document separate from
the color pages, select Color Sort from the
Document/Quality tab of the Printer Properties.
The black pages print with the black cartridge, and the
pages containing color print with the color cartridge. The
printer sorts the pages into those two types, prints all the
pages of one type, and then prompts you when it’s time to
change the cartridge.
See pages 4 and 5 for information on selecting Automatic
or Color Sort in the Printer Properties.

Loading banner paper
Although the paper support holds up to 20 sheets of banner
paper, load only the number of sheets needed to make your
banner. For example, if your banner is 12 sheets long, load
only 12 sheets.
Printing
Use banner paper recommended for inkjets only. We do not
recommend using continuous form paper for dot matrix
printers.
1 Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.
2 Load the banner paper:
a Pull the paper support up
slightly to unlock the front tabs.
b Tilt the paper support back until it
locks in the horizontal position.
c Place your stack of banner paper on
the paper support.
d Insert the leading edge of the first
page into the sheet feeder.
3 Slide the paper guide to the edge of the banner paper.
4 Continue with “Step 3: Customize the printer settings” on
page 4.
5 After your banner prints, remove the banner paper and
return the paper support to the upright position.

Compare the diagonal line above the printed bars to the
diagonal line below the printed bars. Look for a break in the
diagonal line above the printed bars. A broken line indicates
clogged nozzles.

Note: In the examples above, there are no broken lines,
indicating that the nozzles are not clogged.
• If the bottom line has breaks, run the test up to two more
times. If the print quality is satisfactory after running the
test three times, the print nozzles are clean.
• If the print quality is not satisfactory after running the test
three times, continue with the next section.
Wiping print nozzles
If print quality does not improve after cleaning the print
nozzles, you may need to wipe the print nozzles. Refer to the
“Troubleshooting: Print Quality” section of the printer driver
Help. For help accessing the printer driver Help, see page 7.

Preserving print cartridges
To ensure the longest life from your print cartridge and optimum
performance from your printer:
• Keep a new print cartridge in its packaging until you are ready
to install it.
• Do not remove a print cartridge from the printer except to
replace, clean, or store it (see the following section). The print
cartridge does not print correctly if removed from the printer
and left exposed for an extended period of time.
Lexmark’s printer warranty does not cover repair of failures or
damage caused by a refilled cartridge. Lexmark does not
recommend use of refilled cartridges. Refilling cartridges can affect
print quality and cause damage to the printer. For best results, use
Lexmark supplies.
Storing an extra print cartridge
To install the cartridge storage unit and the extra cartridge:
1 Insert the tabs of the cartridge

Note: See page 26 for an explanation of printer parts, including
the buttons, lights, and locations of cable connections.
When your printer has a problem, first make sure that:
• The power supply is plugged into the printer and a properly
grounded electrical outlet.
• The printer is turned On.
• The printer cable is securely attached to your computer and
printer.
• If you are using a parallel cable, make sure it is an IEEE
1284-compliant parallel cable that supports bidirectional
printing.
• If you are using Windows 98, your printer port is set to an
LPTn port for a parallel cable, or to a USB port for a USB
cable. To check your printer port and change it if necessary:
1 From the File menu of your software application,
select Print (or Printer) Setup.
2 Check your printer port in the Where area.
3 If you need to change your printer port to a USB port,
uninstall and then reinstall the printer software. Follow
the instructions on page 21, making sure to click Next
on any screens.
If you need to change your printer port to an LTPn port,

Printer prints slowly or doesn’t print
Your printer and your computer may not be able to communicate
properly.
The following events also indicate two-way communications
problems:
• A message displays on your computer screen indicating your
printer cannot establish bidirectional communications with
your computer.
• Error messages (such as Printer Offline) and job progress
information do not display on your computer screen.
Before proceeding, verify that:
• The parallel or USB cable is securely attached to both the
printer and the computer.
• Your printer port is set to an LPTn port if you are using a parallel
cable or to a USB port if you are using a USB cable. For help,
see page 13.
• The printer is plugged in and turned On.
If you have a switch box or other device (such as a scanner or fax)
connected to the computer's parallel port, make sure it supports
bidirectional communication. You may need to disconnect your
printer from the switch box or other device and connect it directly
to your computer.

interference that may cause
undesired operation.
The FCC Class B limits are
designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful
interference in a residential
installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate
radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will
not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio
or television reception, which can
be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the
following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the
receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation
between the equipment and
receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an
outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver
is connected.
• Consult your point of purchase
or service representative for
additional suggestions.
The manufacturer is not
responsible for any radio or
television interference caused by
using other than recommended
cables or by unauthorized changes
or modifications to this equipment.
Unauthorized changes or
modifications could void the user's
authority to operate this
equipment.
Note: To assure compliance with
FCC regulations on
electromagnetic interference for a
Class B computing device, use a
properly shielded and grounded
cable such as Lexmark part
number 1329605 for parallel
attach or 43H5856 for USB attach.
Use of a substitute cable not
properly shielded and grounded
may result in a violation of FCC
regulations.
