Maybe the cartridges are dry. Try running a test page after running the maintenance nozzle cleaning.

The inkjets nozzles in the black print head maybe blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

It could be due to the printer driver not installed properly. Try to uninstall your existing printer driver then re-install using the driver from the Lexmark website. To uninstall, on your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 5100 Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Reboot pc when prompted.
When your computer turns on, please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X5150 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system > click on "FILTER" > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation.

Make sure the computer and the All-In-One are on.
• Make sure the computer is connected to a phone line. A phone
connection is required for faxing to function.

sent, and then send the current fax again.

Series #1279lexmark printer

Are they genuine lexmark inkjets? Sometimes an alternative brand of ink will have a degraded quality than the genuine inks.

Try taking the colored inkjet out, shake it a little then put it back in. Also make sure the plastic seal that protects the ink has already been taken out of the ink replacements.

Then run a print head cleaning. You can do this from the printer's properties window. Maybe under the maintenance tab or similar.

Black ink cartridge

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

How to print with black ink only when color is empty. I change the settings but still keep getting the same error. Is this because the color is empty it won't let this function work?

Correct - the same for most InkJets- Full complement of cartridges
re uired -- Many years ago some basic Z series Lexmarks had colour/black swappable casrtridges- but that is long gone.
