Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I can't get the printer and windows vista to communicate. Also I have #82 black cartridge--is that the right one. When I got the printer it had #50 in it.

I can't get any communication between the Lexmark X5150 all-in-one printer and my windows vista operating system. Also I tried to make a copy and I started smelling something like it was burning and the paper jammed.

Is this a new printer? how old is the printer?


If you do not have the cd's for the printer you can download the software from

Then install the software and follow the instructions on the screen.

FIRST

Unplug the USB cable from your machine WITH WINDOWS STILL LOADED. shut down windows, Restart, and run your downloaded setup file from the above URL.

Follow the instructions on the screen, should go smooth, I just completed one ok.

My printer is printing blank pages. The test print prints all the colors though. But when I print a document all I get is a blank page. I just installed a new color cartridge.


Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Says "NO COLOR CARTRIDGE".


Try this:

According to the Dell website, this is how the cartridges for the Dell All-In-One Printer/Copier/Scanner Model AIO A940/A960 are supposed to look like. (see attachments)
Black cartridge P/N: 7Y743 with U-shaped "lump" on the (black) lid. (equivalent to Lexmark "82")
Color cartridge P/N: 7Y745 with square with corner cutout "lump" on the (blue) lid. (equivalent to Lexmark "83")

BUT, the black Dell cartridges have the identical corner cutout "lump" as their color cartridges. In other words, they have the lid from the color cartridge, but in black instead of blue.
Both cartridges are made by Lexmark and rebranded for Dell. But Dell made the black cartridge intentionally with a different "lump", so customers are forced to buy expensive Dell cartridges.

Stupid actually, because now the black and the color cartridges each fit in the other's slot!

Beat Dell at their own game, don't pay their rip-off prices!
When you open that Dell printer, lift the black lever that closes over the black cartridge. From the underside of that lever you will see a small "pin" sticking out, that corresponds with the corner cutout "lump" (as depicted on the color-cartridge). Cut that pin off with a sharp knife or a wire cutter.

All of a sudden, the cheaper Lexmark "82" black cartridges fit in (and any other remanufactured equivalent).
Money in your pocket!

Have lexmark 5070 printer getting error msg saying ccomputer not communicating with printer tried unplugging everything usb, printer


It seems there is a possibility of a problem with the printer itself, or perhaps the cartridges. You should first self-test the printer. Since we are unsure where the problem exists, we must do eliminative troubleshooting to rule out parts of the printing system. The self-test allows us to rule out software and the cable by testing the hardware by itself. Please note that this is not a "fix," but rather a diagnostic test to determine if your hardware is at fault.

Please disconnect and then reconnect the power supply on the printer and make sure it makes a setup noise when the cable is reattached. Will the printer perform a form feed with paper loaded when the purple/silver button is pressed?

Next, I'd like you to attempt this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Press the "Settings" button on the printer.
2. Press the checkmark button when you see "Maintenance" on the display. 3. Press the right or left arrow key until you see "Print Test Page," then press the checkmark button.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault. The issue may be a communication problem, or perhaps a software conflict.

However, please let us know the windows operating system installed on the computer.(Windows XP / 2K / NT, Windows Vista, Mac)

Error 50


Is that an error code "Cartridge Error 50C" ? If so, see below....

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.

Refilled a black ink cartridge Lexmark 82


Your printer will probably only work with orignal Lexmark cartridges. Your printer now thinks you are out of ink, so it won't print any more.

Printer and computer arent' communicating


no, a missing black cartridge is not the problem. If other USB devices (do you have a usb mouse or camera) work on your HP, you must try the printer on another PC to test the printer is functional. Many outlet stores like Best Buy will allow you to bring in your printer to test it communicating.
