Hello,I haven't been able to use my printer for some time and the ink heads are blocked,can you help please?

To clean the cartridge via the operator panel, follow the steps below:
  1. Press the Menu button once. The Photo Menu will appear.
  2. Press the down arrow until Clean Cartridge (Press SELECT) appears.
  3. Press Select to begin the cleaning process.
  4. When the page has finished printing, press Stop/Clear to exit the Photo Menu.
However, if you have made several tries already yet cartridges are still not printing properly, it may be time for you to replace those old cartridges with new ones.

P315 print cartrige error

What we surmised is that the little wire contacts on the print cartridge were bad. One suggestion was to use a pencil eraser over the area where the small wire dots are on the cartridge, then wipe clean with a lint free cloth. That didn't work either so I exchanged the cartridge and the problem went away.

I went to the Lexmark site and downloaded the manual. Looked for my problem 'Cartridge Error 50c' and found that my color ink was empty. It took some playing around, but that was it.

Lexmark P315 InkJet Photo Printer Ink Cartridge Problem

Hi, I know this might sound really bad but have you made sure that you have taken ALL the little bits of plastic and covers that are sometimes on the new cartidges?

Also are you using the exact same cartridge as before?

Another thing you could do to bypass the problem is to have your one refilled. That will at least fix the problem for the immediate.

Does your printer have some software where you can run a clean print head and do an align and other stuff. If so you could try those too.
Lets us know.
