Question about Lexmark X1150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Lexmark X1150 printing problem

Although the color cartridge continues to function properly, the black cartridge suddenly stopped with an error message I'd never seen before. Even with a brand new black cartridge, absolutely nothing prints from the black cartridge. It's as if some essential connection broke for the black cartridge, but not the color cartridge. Any suggestions?

Try a "hard restart ", which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You might want to visit the Lexmark website to see what solutions are being offered for printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you want to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

INkCartrige error 50c. Will not print. Display this note each time I try to make copy or print from computer.


Hi there

You should always mention the printer model as well as what operating system you use.

This is what i found on LEXMARK's website about your error, and it seems you have one or 2 faulty cartridges, or you are using compatible cartridges instead of Lexmark Originals:

Problem Error messages; Error: "Cartridge Error 50C"; Cartridge error; Black cartridge missing; Color cartridge missing Solution Cartridge Error 50C
Your print cartridge has shorted.

  1. Power off your All-in-One and unplug it.

  2. Plug in your All-in-One again and turn it on.

  3. Uninstall and then reinstall your cartridges.

  4. If this does not resolve the issue, try the troubleshooting steps for the other cartridge errors below.

Error: Black Cartridge Missing
The black cartridge is not installed. (Install cartridge PN 82)
Error: Color Cartridge Missing
The color cartridge is not installed (Install cartridge PN 83)
Cartridge Error
Complete the following instructions:

  1. Power off your All-in-One.

  2. Use both hands to lift up the scanner unit until the scanner support holds it open.

  3. Turn the All-in-One on. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

  4. Remove the color print cartridge.

  5. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  6. If the error message reappears, replace the black print cartridge with a new print cartridge.
    If it does not repeat steps 1-3 and then go to step 7.

  7. Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black print cartridge.

  8. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  9. If the error message occurs again, replace the color cartridge.

  10. If an error message reappears, repeat steps 1-3 and reinstall both print cartridges.

  11. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  12. If you receive the error message again, replace both cartridges.
Hope it helps

Lexmark Series X1150 My printer does not recognize the color print cartridge and only prints in Black even though the color cartridge is new. First time this has ever happened. I've had the printer...


Make sure you are inserting the correct color cartridge versions for the Lexmark X1150 (either #26 or #27).
Try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center, click Start > Programs > Lexmark X1100 Series > Lexmark X1100 Series Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page that will help clean the nozzles from possible dirt and clogs.
If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working cartridge (e.g. your old cartridge or another new cartridge). It could be a faulty cartridge issue.

When I get ready to print it is saying that the cartridges are missing and I have replaced both cartridges and also I put the old ones back in and it is still saying the same thing.


What cartridge versions(model #) are you using? Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Cartridges for the X1150 are black: #16 or #17 and color: #26 or #27. Try to remove the cartridges from your printer. Close the cover. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and make sure they are properly inserted and secured in the cartridge carrier. Close the cover and try to print again. If error continues, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

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.

I have a Lexmark X1150 printer that is printing purple only.


Try the "better" or "best" print options - They give more ink - might do the trick - (beware it also prints a lot more slowly....)

I have not had that type of problem as such as both my ink slots work, but I did have purple/bluish print instead of black once - It worked for me -
Hope that helps -

I have also found that despite cartridges being new somethimes they are not as full as they should....
