Try to see how you can restore the settings to default. There may be a setting to don't print text somewhere that got marked accidentally. Check your document type in the settings, it may be set to "picture" instead of mixed type document (I don't know what the setting is called, just that it's there) Also press the stop / clear button after printing an image to return to default settings

Cartridge Error message on our Lexmark X5150


The Lexmark machines are designed to kick out anything it suspects may be refilled. If your old cartridge has bad print nozzles this may be tripping the error. Printers are typically for sensitive with their color cartridges anyway because the manufacturers make more money on the color ones. You can try looking around the settings on the machine and in the printer preferences to see if you can tell it to ignore the ink levels and see if you can continue to print.

Will not print,shows65% on screen then printer shows cartridge error 50C see user guide book which I cannot find. My printer is registered with you.


this problem is most likely a damged, defective, or offbrand cartridge. that is what the error code 50C stands for. to test my theory, get an original lexmark black and color cartridge. don't buy it unless you have to. borrow it from a friend or from work. then, clean the inside of the printer with a vaccum and (using isopropal alchol). after performing these tasks, put the new cartridge in one at a time. Make sure you have one old and one new. for example, a new black and an old color. this will tell you which cartridge is defective and needs to be replaced. then fin yorself another company that sells the cartridges and try them.

Color cartridge missing


You may want to remove the power brick at the back of your printer, wait a few seconds and reinsert back. Then try the steps listed in the user guide to install new carts, page 42.

My Lexmark x5150 will not print in color


The only thing that I can think of is if you have not used that color ink cartridge for awhile it may have dried up. I had this happen to me on my printer. You could try taking out the ink cartridge and taking a damp papertowel and wipe down the nozzles. Also check and see if the contacts where the ink cartridge comes in contact with harness are gummed up with old ink. If this helps plese rate. Thanks.

Lexmark X5150 black ink cartridges won't print


The original Lexmark-branded 81 and 82 cartridges shouldn't cause a problem - regardless of the country of origin. I can't speak to any reman or refills, because quality varies widely. Have you contacted Lexmark's technical support - accessible via www.lexmark.com? There should be a solution for the Lexmark-branded cartridges. If that doesn't work, put one of the "bad" Lexmark cartridges in their recycling bag and include a note about your problem, including your email address.

HP Laserjet 1500 Color, Print out Blank


Hi devi960:
Pages print, but all
colors do not print or
the pages are
completely blank.
One of the print cartridges might be
low or empty.
Run an engine test and see if all four colors print. If
not all colors print, replace one or more of the print cartridges. If the
engine test is successful, replace the formatter.
If the printed pages are completely
blank, the file might have blank
pages.
Check the file to make sure that it does not contain blank pages.
A print cartridge might be low or
empty.
Check the printer control panel for a Supplies Status message,
print a Supplies Status page, or use the embedded Web server
(HP color LaserJet 2500 series printers only) to see the levels
remaining in the print cartridges. Replace any print cartridges that
are low or empty. Messages are not created for non-HP print
cartridges.
If you are using non-HP print
cartridges, one or more print
cartridges are low or empty. The
control panel lights do not indicate
low or empty for non-HP print
cartridges.
Replace one or more of the print cartridges.
Font DIMM might be selected but the
font DIMM is not physically installed in
the printer. (This issue applies only to
HP color LaserJet 2500 series
printers using an Asian-language font
DIMM.)
In the settings for this printer, clear the Font DIMM check box on
the Configure tab if no font DIMM is installed in the printer. Select
the Font DIMM check box only if the font DIMM is physically
installed in the printer. If you think that the font DIMM is installed,
make sure that it is installed correctly.
The paper curls when
exiting the top output
bin.
The paper needs to print to the
straight-through paper path.
Open the rear output door to print to the straight-through paper
path. Remove each sheet as it exits the printer.
The stack was slightly curled when it
was placed in the tray.
Turn the stack over in the tray.
The paper does not meet
specifications.
See the user guide for information about print-media specifications.
If you are printing on light media, the
Type setting might not be correct.
Select Light in the Type is field in the printer driver.

My priter prints blue lines across all colored pictures or text.Any Idea?When printing black only,there is no problem.any colored - blue lines are added.I did reintal the drivers,used old and new but...


Have you tried cleaning the print heads or replacing the color cartridge? where as it it printing black fine it leads me to believe the problem lies in the color cartridge. my first recomendation would be to run the clean print head wizard in the printer settings and if that does not work then replace your color cartridge.

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.
