Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

My x5150 won't print black. I replaced the carterage and still no luck. I thought the new carterage may be duff so I got another. Same problem. I've tried the original black one back in, but not even any faint print. The screen says that the black carterage is full. Any ideas please?

Take it back if it is new. If you've had it for a while and it's been sitting unused there may be dried ink in the print head. A visit to the Lexmark website might be useful for any troubleshooting. Good luck.

Hey there!! I have the same problem... I found out something interesting though.... open up a word doc... type something... highlight it, change the color from black to Gray with 80% black... .. you know how there are different shades of gray? well use the darkest one.. believe it or not it worked for me.. I can't print black.. but I can print in gray... unfortunately whenever my printer has to print something that is black, it wont work :( if you ever figured out your problem, by all means please email me at darga33 at g mail dot com.. the reason I wrote my email like that is so an email bot doesn't pick it up and start spamming me. I hope that works for you atleast so you can print dark gray text!! Jordan

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

I just ran out of black ink while printing invitations, i replaced the carterage wtih a new one i bought last week, now it doesn't print black at all. i have test printed and set it to clean but no...


Try unpluging the power to it for about 5 min or so and plugging it back in, that sometimes does the trick. Is the printer even recognizing that you changed the carterage? Sometimes you have to manualy reset that too.

Same thing...


It sounds like the sensor unit that detects the amount of ink/new cartridge.

There's no point in trying to do a repair yourself unless you know where to look. If it is not under warranty, it's time for a new printer.

Your ink cartridges have dried out. Replace the black to confirm this prognostication and, if black works, replace color also. If you are into refilling ink cartridges youself try soaking the black one in 91% rubbing alcohol in a small ziploc type bag for several days. when the alcohol becomes ink colored, remove the cartridge from the baggie, dry it with tissue paper, reinstall it in the printer and up to 3 times run a clean the nozzles page until it prints a solid black line. Repeat with the color cartridge. Good luck.
