Question about Lexmark X5650 All-in-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

My Lexmark 5650 works fine printing photos off my digicam card but I can't seem to make it print any photos or documents off my computer. I have tried downloading the latest drivers. I can see the printer light up when i try to print a computer document but no printing occurs. USB is hooked up properly. I am using 32bit windows Vista as my OS.

    I think this is bad advice, like told you the printer works fine when i plug in my Digcam card and i can print a photo fine. If the print head was not clean or non-functioning the printer would not be able to print a photo. I have already tried starting and restarting and installing the drivers.

    The problem is not solved as of yet, going to have Lexmark remotely use my computer and see if they can resolve it.

    i got the printer working but it had nothing to do with the information you gave me, I went to the lexmark website and they remotely fixed my computer by changing an icon. Drivers were fine and so were the print heads.

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.

What is a scanner and how do i use it on my lexmark 5650 copier?


Hello. The scanner enables you to scan and print photos, text documents, magazine articles, newspapers, and other publications. You can also scan a document for faxing. The scan software must be installed in your computer. Use the installation cd that came with the printer to install the software. Here's an article in the Lexmark website that will show you how to use the scanner. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/9ShAN7 . Hope this helps.

Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

Lexmark 1270 scans but will not print


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue
