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

I have 5150 it has full black cartridge not much color almost out I want to print in black and it will not goes trough the motion not print though just light blue.


Your description of the problem means that in your word processor you have specified color printing. Here you must change it to B&W. Then it will print black. Also do the same in Print manager.

Faint print


Check the print driver settings, this may need to be changed.
Also clean the cartridge nozzle with damp paper towel - should work.
You can service the device in the driver properties.

OfficeJet G85 Makes Unreadable Copies


Usually, it's the print cartridge. I recently installed a new black cartridge on a 6110 printer and it, too, was very faint in printing. It turned out to be "dried up", even though it was a new cartridge in a sealed bag (but purchased in 2005).
