Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I also have the printing blank problem, except I usually get a few lines (once, half a page) and then the ink fades out as if it had just run out. Any subsequent page prints completely blank. I also refill my cartridges. The problem began immediately after finishing a 980-page printing, including three refills. If the printer is allowed to 'rest' a day, it will print some of the document on the first page only. Very bizarre. I was resigned to buying a new cartridge, but after the similar problems I've read here, I'm becoming resigned to a printer funeral. Any ideas?
The ink cartridges REALLY are designed for the original life of the cartridge. I'm not saying that you absolutely should not refill them, but count on refilling only once - twice at most. Replace the cartridge with an original and your problem will be solved. I see this all the time, but I usually get to charge them $35 and THEN sell them a new cartridge! You're home free Ed
