This is a "cartridge short" error which sounds like a defective/broken cartridge. I suggest your return or replace it.

X6150 printer worked fine until I was running out of ink. So replaced both 82 and 83 cartridges (new). Then got online help with 50C error message; moistened gold area on both surfaces of cartridges and...


Try to do the Clean Cartridge function using the control panel on your printer. 1. Press Copy. 2. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display. 3. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display. 4. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
If problem continues and it's beyond return period, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Installed refilled ink catriges,both black and color used for a few days all was well then, it reads Catridge Error -Error: 50C Go to users guide. what do I do Now cannot find users guide. plzzz help.


Though Lexmark does not recommend using refilled inks. You may refer to this article from the Lexmark website on Cartridge Error 50C and Other Errors on the Lexmark X5100/X6100 Series LCD Screen. If this does not help, try to insert a genuine Lexmark cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty. Thanks.

I have a "Lexmark" X6150 Scanner/Copier/Printer.It list a an error as being "Cartridge error 50c" I put in new cartridge & it still won`t print a "Alingment Page" The Cartridge before didn`t last very...


Unplug the printer/copier from the main source of electricity, make sure it is a full ink cartridge, wait 10-20 seconds, plug it back in. Sometimes it takes unplugging it from the computer and doing the same.

Yes I have an cartridge error 50C and I can't seem to fix the problem.


Hi there Error 50c

Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Won't print reads error code 50c



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

I went to the Lexmark site and downloaded the manual. Looked for my problem 'Cartridge Error 50c' and found that my color ink was empty. It took some playing around, but that was it.
