Question about Lexmark X5650 All-in-One InkJet Printer
Try to reset the printer to the factory settings ..It has to be in the main menu (setting menu ) This will make it default itself it it have an odd setting ..
another thing that you should do is to download the driver and make sure it is the correct one..
It also may be something wrong with the usb cable ..but in this case it will not respont and will not be seen by the computer ..
Anyway you can run the fax and printer from the start ..and complete the wizard..this way you will know for sure it is detected..
the issue I see is that it is recommended for windows XP ..and it may not be compatible with windows Vista ..the driver on the support site is for xp ..anyway ..
I found this one..http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=product&linkSelected=node0&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US#2

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.
