Cartridge Error message on our Lexmark X5150


The Lexmark machines are designed to kick out anything it suspects may be refilled. If your old cartridge has bad print nozzles this may be tripping the error. Printers are typically for sensitive with their color cartridges anyway because the manufacturers make more money on the color ones. You can try looking around the settings on the machine and in the printer preferences to see if you can tell it to ignore the ink levels and see if you can continue to print.

Color won't print.


Make sure you removed the plastic tape from the cartridge.
Make sure color is enabled in printer properties on the computer.

My Lexmark x5150 will not print in color


The only thing that I can think of is if you have not used that color ink cartridge for awhile it may have dried up. I had this happen to me on my printer. You could try taking out the ink cartridge and taking a damp papertowel and wipe down the nozzles. Also check and see if the contacts where the ink cartridge comes in contact with harness are gummed up with old ink. If this helps plese rate. Thanks.

Hardware error o504


It shows color cartridge is missing because either the cartridge is not well placed or it is not there.

When you try to run the Clean option from the Ink Cartridge menu, the following message may appear: Hardware Error 0504.

To resolve this issue:
  1. Take both cartridges out of the printer.
  2. Switch off the printer using the power button.
  3. Disconnect the power cable from the back of the Lexmark X5150.
  4. Leave the power cable disconnected for 30 seconds.
  5. Reconnect the power cable and switch the printer on again.
  6. Reinstall the cartridges. (Follow the instructions on the LCD screen or refer to the following document: How to Install the Cartridges in the Lexmark X5150)

Printing only black


How long ago did color print correctly? If it is more than two weeks your cartridge has dried out and must be replaced. A test page including all colors and black is included in lexmark and dell printer programs. It should be run every week minimum and daily in hot, dry environments.

Your ink cartridges have dried out. Replace the black to confirm this prognostication and, if black works, replace color also. If you are into refilling ink cartridges youself try soaking the black one in 91% rubbing alcohol in a small ziploc type bag for several days. when the alcohol becomes ink colored, remove the cartridge from the baggie, dry it with tissue paper, reinstall it in the printer and up to 3 times run a clean the nozzles page until it prints a solid black line. Repeat with the color cartridge. Good luck.
