    I try to put black cartridge in place of color and his work.

    My color and black printer cartridges are new, but the output is a page with very little print on it. It's as though something is blocking the area between the cartridge and the paper that's being printed.



    I've replaced and cleaned the cartridges.

Printer lexmark x5150 not print


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  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 Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Hi I bought a lexmark S405 and when my ink finished, i decided to refill the black catridge but the print wont print unless i buy a new catridge which is expensive than buying a new printer. I wanna...


The Lexmark S405 printer requires all cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing.

The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.

Try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Launch the application from All Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series Printer > Tools > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal lines. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Once done, try to print again and check if black is printing properly now. If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the other is fautly.

I have a Lexmark X6690 and bought new Lexmark print cartridges today - Black and Colour. The printer is recognising the colour cartridge but not the black one. Driving me nuts!! Please help x


Try to reseat the black cartridge. If that doesn't help, try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On the printer operator panel > press Setup button > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges > Ok. Your printer will then print a page, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean them. Try to print again. You may also try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. If your new cartridge is faulty, return it to the purchase store (if within return period) or contact Lexmark technical support for assistance.

My printer hp psc 1350 keep on blinking check print catridge even after change new catridge both colour and black..how to settle?


Tried removing the cartridges again, then turn off you printer for 2 mins.

clean the print nozzles of the cartridges, turn the printer on
insert the cartridges again, then check if the problem persist.

You can also try to put the original cartridges that came with the printer
to isolate the problem, if it's really the ink cartridges.

I bought two new cartridges for my printer but the printer prints funny. there is no color and the black appears faded. my printer is about 2 years old. have any ideals?


Sounds like the jets may be clogged. You may have to run multiple times till they are good. Print a test after each clean and see if that helps.  You can use the operator panel or the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center to clean the nozzles. Using the operator panel 1 Load paper in the All-In-One. For help, see page 16. 2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display. 3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display. 4 Press Select. A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved. 6 To further improve print quality, try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts (see page 44), and then print your document again. 7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times. you can get the owners manual on line at this address:  http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x5150/eng/ug.pdf

please rate this and good luck.

Any colour print is flooded with blue ink


Sounds like a bad cartridge and it will be about empty by now anyway.
You can clean the contacts on the cartrdge gently with a pencil eraser.
If it does this with a new cartridge you should uninstall and reload your device with the latest drivers from the website.
Lexmark is notorious for poor driver support.
Good luck! Jidza

I bought a replacement color ink cartridge for my x5150 inket printer. The computer shows that the color ink is full, but I can't get any color ink to print out.


remeber to remove the tefflon that was used to cover
the ink nozzle.then u can remove the ink & clean the printing head gently with soft tisseu paper.
then u can use a fresh tissue paper & gently press it on the nozzle ,the three colours must show on the paper if not the nozzle might have get problem. u can as well shake the catridge to feel the pressence of any ink inside.
thanks.
