Samlabbe,

First I would go to the lexmark wesite at http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=en&page=product&productCode=LEXMARK_X5150&segment=SUPPORT&userlocale=EN_US#1
and download and install the latest driver. It may require uninstalling the current driver. The newest driver will have any updates and corrections and may solve your problem. Even if this is not the problem it can't hurt to have the most current driver.

If this doesn't solve your problem, when you are ready to print do a "print preview" which will show the layout and how many pages you are going to print. If it shows two pages (one being blank) see if there are extra spaces at the end of your text which is causing it to spill onto another page. You can also reformat the page with narrower headers and less margin which should allow your text to fit on one page. This can be done by selecting "page setup" under the "File" header. The default for most printing has very large margins/headers and they can be reduced.

The last change you could make would be to choose a smaller text to fit all the information onto one page. Additionally if none of the previous solutions work when you print, a window will open, called "page range", which allows you to select the pages you want to print . You could either choose "current page" or click on the bullet for l"pages" and type "1" in the box. This will limit the computer to printing only the first page.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the Great rating.

Prints blank page


Have you checked the print que
Printer problems can be a real hassle.
From time to time, due to document layout or settings on your computer, in your software of choice, or even on your printer, a blank page may get "printed" with the rest of your document.
Fortunately, this issue is a simple one to troubleshoot.
Click "Print Preview" when you are finished with your document and ready to print.
Observe your document.
If you see an extra, blank page, you have created a second page.
To delete the second page, close Print Preview, go back into the document and eliminate any blank lines in your documents that you may not need.
You may also find an inadvertent page break at the end of your document.
Place your cursor on its symbol and delete it.
Locate the symbol by clicking on the Show Formatting paragraph icon in the toolbar.


Circumvent this "ghost page" if you do not see a second (or additional) blank page in Print Preview.

Specify the number of pages you wish to print, within the Print dialogue box.
This is typically done by selecting the "Print From" option, then entering the page numbers desired.
If your document happens to be ten pages (without, of course, that final blank page), then enter in the "Print From" field the numbers "1-10".
This will print only pages 1 through 10, without an eleventh (blank) page.

Printer Printing blank pages


Does it print at all? Have you tried a demo print? menu->information->print demo

Is it printing additional blank pages are all pages blank?

The first thing to check would be the toner.

Try printing out the supply status page (menu->information->print suppies status).

You could also try diagnostics-> PQ troubleshoot.

Canon iR C6800 prints leading and trailing blank pages


There is an option in the print driver to print a separation page (typically just a blank page unless you specify otherwise) so that each person's print jobs can be differentiated easily.

This option probably got enabled somehow on her PC. Have her go into the print driver's properties (right click on the Canon in the list of printers and select Properties) and look for the option that says separation page or separator page and deselect it. Then click Apply or OK, and it should be good.
