Question about Lexmark X6150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

X6150, does not turn on with power button

When the machine is plugged in short vertical bars appear across the display. The power button changes nothing in the display. I checked the transformer and it is putting out 30 V. The previous owner said that it worked when she last used it. It is not connected to the computer.

    The machine has been sitting a few months. The cartridges are in place, but the carriage does not move.

I can't figure out where to plug in the power supply
to the Printer for the X6150. On the back there is a
big square hole that looks like something is missing
and I can't find a manual On line.

X2600 printer has EC5 problem


The error indicates that there is a short in one if the cartridges. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have an x6150 and it had been working fine. I ran out of ink and replaced the cartridge not too long ago. I printed a few items (not much) and all of a sudden when I hit print, it acts like it is...


Print quality issues could be due to clogged or dirty print cartridge nozzles. Try the steps below to improve print quality on your Lexmark X6150 printer:
  1. Load paper in the All-In-One.
  2. On the printer operator panel, press Copy.
  3. Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display.
  4. Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the display.
  5. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
  6. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
You may also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if it's not a cartridge issue.

Alignment problem hardware error 0502. Printer is an X6150.Can n


The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.

The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.

The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test.

To self-test the printer, please follow the steps given below:

1. Press the "Options" button 9 times. "Maintenance/Align" should now appear in the display screen.
2. Press the "Right Arrow (+)" until "Test" appears.
3. Press "Select."

You should see text followed by a thick 1-inch black bar. Under this bar, should be a process gray bar about a 1/2-inch thick. Below this line should be a set of railroad like bars of cyan, magenta, and yellow.

Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.

If you cannot repair the strip, please contact Lexmark tech support for further assistance.

Error 0xc18a0401


This can be a failure of the firmware which means the printer is in hardware failure status but it can sometimes be fixed. Follow these steps EXACTLY as written.

Press and hold the “*” key. Press the “#” key and release both keys.
Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
Press and release in sequence the "1”, “2” and “3” buttons.
Display should say “Support” and display the FW rev (something like R0631R)
Mine reads R0631M
. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer.
Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page. Good Luck!

How to change paper tray on pixma ip4000 canon?


There is a button I believe just above the USB port on the front of the machine. The picture is of a printer and there are two areas that will lit up. If the light is on the bar that is in the vertical direction, this indicates you are using the top feeder. If the bar is lit that is horizontal you are using the paper tray feeder. The Default is normally on the top feeder. Most people do not even realize there is a paper tray on these machines. They are hidden well.
To change tray settings simply push the gray button found under the picture of the printer with the vertical and hrizontal bars usually lit in green!
