Lexmark P4350 new cartridge print quality

  Plastic Dracula 20:36 27 Aug 2008

Ive got a Lexmark P4350 all in one printer. Its been telling me for a while that it was out of ink but it was still printing so I have left it for a while and changed the cartridges today, using new, genuine Lexmark cartridges.
After changing them, the print quality is still crap. Using the software that comes with the printer the only option I have is to 'clean to fix horizontal streaks'. I have done this about 10 times now and the quality is no better.
What else can I do? Should I keep cleaning until it gets better or runs out of ink :P
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks in advance

Well its going to cost more than its worth, Plus you could buy a lot better one cheaper. Carts for Lexmark as a Expensive as new Printer nearly

2 cartridges cost £15
If you can find me a new better printer for £15 then please show me the way

Its the print head thats the problem just check price for one of those, If self cleaning will not do it, thats the only way to go

Where did you get 2 Genuine Lexmark Carts for £15? These ones are about £12-£15 EACH at most outlets.

Woodchip - Lexmark printheads are part of the cartridge, the main reason they are so expensive.
