Hi there! I have a lexmark x5150. The problem is that I couldn't print black. So what I did was I opened up a word document, and changed the text from black, to dark gray... it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!! But...


Don't put your e-mail up for hackers to send you a virus!
Try to print from another program. It can't be as obvious as low(or completely dry) black cartridge could it? worth a shot? You can make a dark grey from the color cartridge just not dark black.

My x5150 won't print black. I replaced the carterage and still no luck. I thought the new carterage may be duff so I got another. Same problem. I've tried the original black one back in, but not even any...


Take it back if it is new. If you've had it for a while and it's been sitting unused there may be dried ink in the print head. A visit to the Lexmark website might be useful for any troubleshooting. Good luck.

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.

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.

My lexmark x5150 printer won't print the last two inches of printing on the right hand side of the paper. how do I fix this?


Is it from every progam/application? If it's only from MS Word for example, it could be your margins.

If it's from all applications, maybe your paper size is set to something other than what's really in there?

Printing only black


How long ago did color print correctly? If it is more than two weeks your cartridge has dried out and must be replaced. A test page including all colors and black is included in lexmark and dell printer programs. It should be run every week minimum and daily in hot, dry environments.

Printer has suddenly stopped printing envelopes


Just fixed it thanks to Lloyd at Lexmark.com Go to Technical Support > LIVE CHAT. To print envelopes all I needed was to check the print in "Black" only button. Under Quality make sure the Print Color images in Black box is checked, select Apply and OK.

Printer malfunction


2 possible soultions,

1. The color required to print the text ( ie: black or a variation of ) may have run out and needs to be refilled or replaced.

2. The other way that could help, is to select only the text you wish to print, by highlighting the entire text of the email, and then press and hold Ctrl while you press P to bring up printing shortcut menu and then check the "Print selected only" before attempting to print.

This should give you only the selected text, but if your black or the color required to print is empty, it may appear blank on the page, or show a low ink error.
