I have a problem with All in one Lexmark X5150...it prints white pages...I have checked for ink level, i tried with a new cartridge, I read the trobleshooting from X5150 but I still could not figure out whats wrong. The plastic foil is off, the printer is on ready status and is set as default, the ink level is ok, the paper is ok, the connections to USB are ok, but still doesnt print. I restarted the PC and the printer, but still nothing...I really dont know what else to try...
Uninstall the printe driver,then try reinstalling the printer back.if no luck,change the usb cable or printer cable as the case may be,if doesn't work,try using the printer on a friends machine.
did it work?let me know.

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer
cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you
printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where
the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer
turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document
again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print
cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues
with your model:
On your computer, go to Start
Go to Programs.
Go to Lexmark 2600 Series
Select Lexmark Solution Center.
From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print
After printing the test page, try to print a document again to
verify that the problem is fixed.
It could be the print setting on your computer.
If you're using Windows, with your document open, go to File > Properties/Preferences. In the Print Setup tab, make sure to select "Print using all available ink" in the Ink Use section.
On Mac you can select Color in Print Setting in any expanded print dialog.
If not printing anything go to printer properties and print a test page. If nothing visible replace cartridge. Cartridges known for drying up when not frequently used. Use cotton swab with rubbing alchohol to clean any dried ink from ports and reciever.
You need to reset the ink level before the printer can print further, to do these please follow the following step: 1) Goto the Lexmark Solution Center application. 2) Press button Maintenance>Install a new print cartridge, follow the instruction on screen. U may then have your new full ink level. Note: u only can reset to full level, cannot customize the level by your own. Then try again with printing alignment task. Hope this help.
take out the ink cartridges from printer
Take a tissue paper and make it damp with water
Then CLean the bottom part of cartridge where you see some golden contacts , just wipe it off with damp tissue .
Check if there is any ink coming on the tissue or not .
If No ink coming out , may be u forgot to pull out the protective tape or there is no ink inside the cartridge
Pull the cartridge check to make sure you removed the seal. Take a damp cloth gently wipe across the ink openings. If you get ink reinstall. Go to printer settings and make sure you are not set on documents black and white but on colour printing. Go to maintainance run test page several times. hope this works for you.
