Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem. I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this. There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure. How old is the printer? Is it a genuine lexmark cartridge? Have you cleaned the machine?

If this is not a simple fix, I;m not going to put much time or money into it. i'm planning on replacing it. I am using reman cartridges.

As I said to find out we would need to troubleshoot and you may need a part to get it to use any cartridges. In order to start troubleshooting I need the answer to those questions.
