Why is my printer printing blotches and all different colors?
I have a lexmark printer which I usually have good luck with and it usually does a nice job. Suddenly today I'm getting black ink blotches on pages printing out. Also, the ink cartridge is pretty new - hardly used - and reports are printing out mostly red, green, and/or black when they should be printed in all black. Anyone know what to do about this?

one or both of your ink cartridges may be damaged, leaking, or not in their proper positions in the printer. Check those possibilities first.

Make sure your ink cartridges are in place properly. Sometimes even new ones aren't filled up right and depending on where you got your printer may actually be recycled cause that's what happened to me once. You may need new cartridges.
