The problem could be due to a communication failure between one of the printheads (cartridges) and the All-In One (AIO) or by a short in one if the printheads. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

SOURCE: refilled black cartridge 36 on my 5650 won't work

The cartridge is electronically dead. This is a common occurrence from improper refilling. To be correctly refilled it must be done under a vacuum to prevent air from entering the print head, which has likely happened. As ink flows through the print head it acts as coolant in an engine, when air is introduced the print head cannot cool, over heats, and ruins the cartridge. These cartridges are difficult enough for us professionals to refill successfully, my recommendation is to leave it to us, or buy original. A refilled integrated print head cartridge will always continue to read as empty because there is no way to reset the cartridge, the manufactures do this on purpose. Lexmark cartridges in general are designed to only last one cycle anyways, multiple refills is attained only with proper technique.

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.

My lexmark x 5650 keeps saying alignment error, try to remove tape. I've done this multiple times, tried cleaning the cartridge, and it keeps saying alignment problem. ive unplugged and plugged back in...


alignment error usually means that one cartridge is not printing, or paper tray is empty.
try removing both cartridges then stamp each printhead on some folded tissue paper. You should get one solid strip of black ink with the black cart and 3 colour strips with the colour cart.
If you don't...there is your problem.

good luck

I've refilled my black ink cartridge #36 and put it into my Lexmark 5650. My computer will not let me print - not even to "complete a page" print. It says that I need more ink. I have windows vistas. What...


Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges cannot be refilled. When your ink levels drop below a certain point your printer deactivates the electronics on your cartridge so you cannot refill them. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling shop and I sell Lexmark originals for the 36 and 37 because of this reason. Unfortunately you purchased a machine that you have to buy expensive original ink for. You need to buy Lexmark original 36 and 37 to get your printer to work. As a refiller I never recommend someone buy a Lexmark printer if they ever want to use refills.
