    Lexmark P3150 worked well in B/W and color for years. Now will not print color. Replaced cartridge a couple of times and used qtip to wipe connections with rubbing alcohol. Still doesn't work.

Good Evening HERIB :


Hope that you are wellJ


First, try updating your drivers or uninstalling and reinstalling your printer software.


Next, try.

Adjust printer settings


Click Start , click Settings, and then click Printers.
Right-click the icon (picture) of the printer.
Click Properties .
In the Properties dialog box, click the Details tab.
Look for the text Print using the following driver .
Under Print using the following driver , verify that the name of the printer is listed.
Click the Color or Color Management tab.
Click Automatic .
Click the Setup tab. If you do not see a Setup tab, click the Device Options tab. If you do not see a Device Options tab, click the Details tab, and then click the Setup button.
Locate the text Print Quality .
For Print Quality, choose Best or Presentation .

Look for the text Paper Type , Media , or Media Choice . If you do not see any of these options, click the Paper tab.
Click in the box under Paper Type , Media , or Media Choice .
In the list that pops up, choose the type of paper or film you are using.
Under Photo Paper printing , choose PhotoREt .
PhotoREt is available only if you have chosen HP brand paper under Paper Type. If you don't have a PhotoREt option, look for the text ICM . If you see ICM , click in its checkbox to add a checkmark, and click OK .
If you see a tab called Advanced , look for text Saturation , Brightness , and Color Tone .
Move the sliders next to Saturation , Brightness , and Color Tone to adjust these settings. If you cannot find these settings, click the Graphics tab and then click the Color button. Choose the options that match the type of document you are printing.
Click OK .
Close the Printers window.
Open the software application that you were using to print.
Try printing.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

And, remember, always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful evening.

Lexmark All in One - Forever searching for scanning applications!


I had the same problem with my Lexmark x1150. After a few hours of searching on the internet I found the solution at this forum http://www.techsupportforum.com/hardware-support/printer-support/64233-lexmark-p3150-3100-a.html

Lexmark made a fix for this Goto the FTP server of lexmark and download the Searching for scanning applications fix for your printer @ ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/

Lexmark P3150


Some people have success with varying brands of generic carts, some don't. You can try copying many pages of anything many times. say 50, then run head clean routine. Repeat up to 250 copies. If after this still white pages, get genuine carts and repeat until it works. If no go the head is probably clagged up with generic ink. Then you need to pull it and soak, but don't hold your breath.....
