Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Was working great. changed black cartridge, then not printing black (printed very faintly) tried another cartridge - it worked for 1 print, then again, faint or no black print. Have aligned, realigned, turned off/on, reinstalled both cartridges. help!
What you may have to do is clean the rollers, good place to clean is where you insert the cartridges, open the lid so the machine thinks your going to repalce the ink, cut the power from the mains, now you can proceed to to clean the inside, remove both in cartradges and clean where they instert, toilet roll or kitchen roll will do because they soak up the ink, then, and be very gentle, slide the mechanism to the left hand side so you can clean underneath, after cleaning power the printer up so that it still thinks you are changing the ink, the cartridge housing should be where you can access them so you can the put the ink back in, then you need to use the the lexmark software to re-align the cartridges and also print a test page, keep on doing this until the inkjets are performing properly
