Default Lexmark Problem

I am using lexmark X85 printer since a year. Everthing was fine but suddenly from yesterday it is only printing colour, not the black colour, like it prints colour letters but not black letters.

I went to lexmark control, it shows i have suffice cartidge.But when i print they are like faded ltter or alomst no print.

Any ideas?

unfortunetly, with ink the way it is nowadays, it drys so fast that it builds up and even with the self cleaning utilities the printer comes with it doesn't do the job. thats why especially after a year old, it is just better to buy a new one. they are cheap so just get a new one. please don't get a used one either, used printer=trouble
