Lexmark x6150 won't print after being stored

My printer was stored in a climate controlled setting for months. When I took it out, it would go through the motions, but nothing would come out on the page. I changed the black cartridge, and after I printed the test page (which didn't print very well), it said to "cartridge not aligned, remove tape from cartridge" or something like that. When I sent a document to the printer, it barely printed anthing on the page.

My black ink all of a sudden won't print and I get an error message that says remove tape from cartridge...there is no is a Lexmark 6150

If the problem continues even after re-seating the black cartridge and cleaning its nozzles, then it could be a faulty cartridge issue. Replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

I have an x6150 and it had been working fine. I ran out of ink and replaced the cartridge not too long ago. I printed a few items (not much) and all of a sudden when I hit print, it acts like it is...

Print quality issues could be due to clogged or dirty print cartridge nozzles. Try the steps below to improve print quality on your Lexmark X6150 printer:
  1. Load paper in the All-In-One.
  2. On the printer operator panel, press Copy.
  3. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display.
  4. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display.
  5. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
  6. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
You may also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if it's not a cartridge issue.

Lexmark X6150 Inkjet - Problems Communicating with Printer

For scanning - use window drivers, try under window Photo Gallery. Works fine. For printing, the problem is when it tries to "delete" a file it prints it fails. Can not figure this one out.

I had this problem also. After some research I found this was the only way to clear the cue.

Go to Control Panel > Printers > Right click on your Lexmark Printer > Select "Run as Administrator" > select "clear print cue"

It will ask you if you are sure - click yes/ok.

Your print cue will now be clear.

Trying to use task manager will not clear your print cue in the system, only the window notifying you of print cue items.

Unfortunately Vista and the Lexmark 6150 do not get along and this will probably keep happening.

Network Printing Issues

have one too, this happened with an x73 when i upgraded from win98 to winXP, It happened with the X6150 when i upgraded to vista. to correct this problem, Get an HP printer and be done with it. I like lexmark because the ink costs less, but if they do not work, they are of no help, Lexmark needs to invest in engineers to write drivers, they will not do so unless we stop buying their good printes controlled by flawed software. Unfortunately, after having installed the latest driver, from their site, on a computer that had never had a printer installed before and was out of the box with all the windows update, it is a LEXMARK problem. Everything else works fine. LEXMARKS problems continue to be an issue. This is my last LEXMARK.

I had the same problem and used Solution #3 (above) from a "Guest". Since I was only immediately concerned with printing in black, I took out the color cartridge and the printer is now working fine!
