Greenish tint to black type

\015 When I print a normal Word document on my Lexmark 2480, the black type comes out with a greenish hue to it. I think it's always done this. Tried changing cartridges, did the same thing.\015

\015\012clean the print head, with a coth with either alcohol or 409 cleaner let it dry and start printing again
This is a dot matrix printer. The way they work is there is a print head that has a heap of little needles with flat tops on them, and they push out at high speed against the ink ribbon, and the ink ribbon is pushed against the paper to make a dot. Then the pin is retracted, spring loaded.
\015\012Pretty amazing that it can work that fast, eh!
\015\012So the only thing that can influence the ink colour on your paper is the ribbon.
\015\012Are you using original Lexmark ribbons? If so, my recommendation would be to take a sample print to where you got the printer from and get them to demonstrate the print quality of one of these printers, then compare it with yours.
\015\012Dot Matrix printers will not produce print as black or as high a quality as a laser printer, for example.
\015\012Perhaps the ink ribbons you are using have a less than top quality ink in them, and there is a bit of "bleeding" going on - it can only be the ribbon.
\015\012Another thing you can experiment with to get the best print quality is the print head gap - there will (should) be an adjustment, and getting that right will make a difference to print quality.
\015\012Hope this helps you.
