Cartridge error 50c

I have the lexmark x5150. every time i try to print, scan, anything it says "cartridge error 50c". i have looked everywhere trying to fix the problem and the only thing that i have found is complaints about this model. please help!!!!!!!! Error 50C. I've unplugged the unit several times. I've checked the cartridges several times, making sure that it seats properly. Will replacing the cartridges (even though they are not empty) guarantee that it will work? Has anyone done this successfully?

Have you tried the Lexmark Knowledgebase?

http://support.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/knowledgebase.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:133:0:0&framed=&docid=ENUS8448&relevance=1

It addresses this specific issue. It sounds like a shorted cartridge. However, sometimes this just means that the contacts in the cartridge carrier need to be cleaned. You can do this by removing both cartridges and cleaning the electrical contacts on the cartridges as well as the ones they touch in the cartridge carrier on the printer. You can do this with a slightly damp soft cloth. You can also use a bit of rubbing alcohol as well.

I would try cleaning the electrical contacts as I described above before I'd do anything like getting new cartridges. If the problem persists after that and after following the instructions in the link I posted above, then it might be time to get new cartridges.
