A friend has a Lexmark X75 printer. It has not been used in some time. I hooked it up and tried it out. The page come out without a single mark on it, but you can hear the print heads moving back and forth, line by line. Tried with both a .txt and a .doc document.
There is a little picure of the ink cartridges which comes up on the monitor when I send a print job to the printer. This little picture seems to say that there is adequate ink in the cartridges.
I went to the Lexmark webpage for advice. "Contact us" got me an offer to answer my question for 20 bucks! I never saw that kind of thing before.
Question: Are the ink cartrridges probably dried up from disuse?
As you know, those cartridges are expensive. I'd like to be confident about this before I tell my froend to go buy new cartridges.
