Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Lexmark 5150 printer was working perfectly fine until a week ago. Instead of printing black, the letters are tiny, pink and blue, and unreadable. I've done everything: reinstalled the black and color ink cartridges, cleaned and aligned everything, cleaned the inside encoder strip...everything, and it still won't print in normal black anymore. Any ideas?

Prints purple instead of black on photos only

My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!
