If it isn't a fractured power cable or loose power socket either at the wall or the printer power supply which plugs in the rear of the printer, then it must be a fault with the printer itself. Try pushing the power supply in and then pull it out a few times then make sure it's fully pushed in. Are you sure it's completely closing down? If it's just stopping it could be a near empty ink cartridge or maybe a faulty cable from the printer to the computer (USB). I doubt it would be the software but a reinstall (make sure you uninstall first) certainly won't hurt. Software can do weird things at times :-) BMW

    To rule out the software, disconnect the computer from the printer and see if you can copy and print out a document. The computer isn't needed for this task. If everything works then it's either the USB cable or software problem.

    Make sure the power plug which plugs into the power supply is pushed in hard too.

Need to know how to install lexmark 5150 printer


I too have a Lexmark 5150 so here's what I did btw I am using Fedora 6 and I have installed cups and using the frontend interface localhost:631

1 : Download the Z55 Driver for Linux from the Lexmark Website
2 : Create the following directory temp_lex
3 : tar -xvf CJLZ55LE-CUPS-1.0-1.tar.gz
4 : tail -n +143 lexmarkz55-CUPS-1.0-1.gz.sh | gzip -cd | tar xvf - -C temp_lex
5 : cd temp_lex
6 : rpm -Uvh z55llpddk-2.0-2.i386.rpm lexmarkz55-CUPS-1.0-1.i386.rpm
7 : Install your Lexmark 5150 and from the driver list you should see a driver for a Z55.

Works very well for me...
hope you too,, regards

Pick up the printer with both hands, hold it shut, turn it up side down, and shake violently in every direction until something falls out (which it will!!!).
