A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Clean the contacts on the cartidge and printer ( open the replace ink door wait for the printhead to come to center and turn off power) if that does not work then replace cartridge, it might be a recycled one that they did not chane the chip.

SOURCE: printer wont print at all. error message is 50C.

Hi Try These Solutions:

its quite simple really just turn off your printer then unplug it remove both cartridge's get like a wet baby wipe or something similar let them sit on it for @ 10 secs then just real easy wipe the front piece as well take the same wipe and wipe the heads in the printer well sort of dab them dont wipe let dry for @ 10 secs put them back in (note you will need to move your cartridges over to where load position by hand to and back) run a cleaning test then align test , then print a test page and wah lah works on every one i ever had to do . sort of fix the things u know. have fun hope this eases your day or better. merry christmas to all and to all good night in essence what has occured is the cartridge got shorted and has dried at the surface as well. try it any other tips you need well ask but not to many thats why i quit giving tips like 15000 email a week blow your mind apart

or
Well, I did all that but no dice. But then I noticed that the "protective" tape on the new cartridge had left sticky junk on the cartridge -- but NOT on the print heads, just on a regular part. I got rid of the sticky stuff and voila!

Check your color ink by dabbing on a damp paper towel, you should see 3 distinct lines, one for each color.If any color is weak or missing it will never pass alignment and you need a new cartridge.

I'm getting an error code Illegal attribute value on my hp 4050 printer


Nothing to worry about. It just means that you have printed a page or pages that all the trays do not have the correct paper size. Say your trays all have A4 papers and you printed a PDF document (US letter size) downloaded from America. Printer prints the page, then print another page with your error message just to tell you your pages do not match the papers. This is HP PCL6 code. A Postscript printer driver will just refuse to print if page size mismatches and keep the user wondering why.

To avoid the message, just make sure that your documents have the same page settings as papers in your printer trays.

If there's a carriage jam. While the printer is turned on, Open the access door of you printer.
If the carriage is stuck at the left side, try moving it manually by hand to the right most part of the window. If it's stuck on the right, try moving it by hand to the left.
If you've already done that. While the printer is turned on, unplug the power cord from the back. Close the access door. And then plug it back in.
Make sure you restart the computer first just to avoid documents getting stuck in the print queue. Try printing again. Usually it does the trick.
