Perhaps the Lexmark P3150 User's Guide will be able to help you. Click on the link to download: http://bit.ly/bk5IRX. Scroll to Maintenance, Page 38, for instructions on how to replace/install the cartridges.
Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't position automatically to the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the carrier to the middle of the printer. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.
there is a small magetic switch where the front of the cover touches. or at the cover hunger, try to put you hands on the cover and press down a little, not too hard see if that helps. if not, then the printer need a service call.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
Error 30 Top Cover Open or Print Cartridge Missing
Make sure the spring-mounted pin on the print head shroud is installed
properly and that it is detected by the ramp on the print cartridge as
the cover closes. The pin should enter the tower on the HVPS and
depress the cover switch.
Unplug the printer. Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer. Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.
