In this case make sure that the catridges are inserted in the right slot...... The Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black Catridges should go on the left side.... Make sure the catridge which u are using on this printer is the right one.......... It should not be a refilled cartridge if it is it will not work because Lexmark printers are not designed to work with Refilled catridges it may damage ur Printer......... If everything here is fine just take out both the catridges...... Take a Dry Paper Towel........ Clean the copper contacts on the printer as well as the Catridges....... Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer............ Replug it in and if still it says catridge is missing then may be a problem with the catridges.............. Hope it Works..... Good Luck........

Test page prints fine alignment problem


Try to re-seat your cartridges into the printer. If the error continues, try to do the Alignment function using the printer software on your computer.
  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Align Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page that will help align the cartridges.

Lexmark X4270 gives an error message...black cartridge missing. It is not missing. what is the problem


Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark black cartridge. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
Try to reinsert your black cartridge and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier. If error comes back up right after placing it in the printer, then it could be a faulty cartridge. Try to replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. If you are already using a genuine Lexmark cartridge, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

INkCartrige error 50c. Will not print. Display this note each time I try to make copy or print from computer.


Hi there

You should always mention the printer model as well as what operating system you use.

This is what i found on LEXMARK's website about your error, and it seems you have one or 2 faulty cartridges, or you are using compatible cartridges instead of Lexmark Originals:

Problem Error messages; Error: "Cartridge Error 50C"; Cartridge error; Black cartridge missing; Color cartridge missing Solution Cartridge Error 50C
Your print cartridge has shorted.

  1. Power off your All-in-One and unplug it.

  2. Plug in your All-in-One again and turn it on.

  3. Uninstall and then reinstall your cartridges.

  4. If this does not resolve the issue, try the troubleshooting steps for the other cartridge errors below.

Error: Black Cartridge Missing
The black cartridge is not installed. (Install cartridge PN 82)
Error: Color Cartridge Missing
The color cartridge is not installed (Install cartridge PN 83)
Cartridge Error
Complete the following instructions:

  1. Power off your All-in-One.

  2. Use both hands to lift up the scanner unit until the scanner support holds it open.

  3. Turn the All-in-One on. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

  4. Remove the color print cartridge.

  5. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  6. If the error message reappears, replace the black print cartridge with a new print cartridge.
    If it does not repeat steps 1-3 and then go to step 7.

  7. Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black print cartridge.

  8. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  9. If the error message occurs again, replace the color cartridge.

  10. If an error message reappears, repeat steps 1-3 and reinstall both print cartridges.

  11. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  12. If you receive the error message again, replace both cartridges.
Hope it helps

My printer is a lexmark 2600. i bought a black ink only. when i wanted to print, its not working. it said that i have to alignment it first. i did it already many times, but it's still not...


Some of the Lexmark printers have a sensor that looks for the cartridges and if one is missing it may not print.

The first thing you could try is to reload the Lexmark software from the CD that came with the machine and see if that works. If it does not, you may have to have a cartridge in the color slot to make it print. You could try an empty color cartridge in the slot if you cold find one.

Good luck................Pete

My lexmark 2600 printer is not finding my color cartridge. they keep on telling me cartridge is missing and to install the cartridge, I repeatedly take out the cartridges clean them and re-install them....


Hi,

You can try the following,
  • Take out the color cartridge, you will see golden points at the back of it
  • Use soft lint free cloth to clean the points
  • You will also see some golden points on the carriage, where the cartridges are placed
  • Clean the circuit points on carriage with a soft lint free cloth
  • Place the cartridge back and try to print
  • If it still don't work, you can try replacing the cartridge
Causes: Dirty contact points (Golden circuit points), Carriage gone bad, Cartridge gone bad

Can't print black and white only with Lexmark 2600!


Hi MikeC,

Most of the time this is due to the black cartridge being out of ink. The Lexmark uses all the colors to create black when the black ink cartridge runs out, but won't let you print black because it is essentially saving ink.

Hope that's the reason and it isn't the printer failing. Good luck! :)

Lexmark X5150 printer (serial #10450991811): Error message reads "color cartridge missing." It is not. With the last cartridge, printing was light and scattered; could not print anything...


Went to online chat with Lexmark. FREE.

They offered to replace cartridges as they felt the ink was dried out in one, and the ink jets in the other were damaged.
