According to Lexmark's website, the printer will not read a memory card larger than 256MB. They specifically mentioned xD cards, but not cover the other types of cards. I have a 512MB SD card, and had the same problem, so I would guess it can't read anything over 256.

Has it done this before or is it a new issue, ie have you successfully read from this card before to the printer. Sometimes a card can be incompatable with certain types of printers. Check manual to see if compatable. If it has read it before, you may need to completely unplug all usb cables and cords after switching unit off and replugging to reset printer. Make sure all print queues are cancelled. Try again. If no better,try uninstalling and reinstalling printer.

    hatinLexmark seems to be correct if other solutions did not help. Sometimes certain printers are not compatible with certain softwares. The solution obviously to obtain a compatible card, or try to obatin compatible drivers from manufacturers site and try this. Did you try unisntalling driver for it and reinstalling it (the card) most software has drivers. Good luck.

Printer will not recognise camera memory card hp p315 photo printer


Was your Lexmark P315 printer able to detect this particular memory card before? Try to re-insert the card - it could be due to a slight communication problem. Have you tried inserting a different known working compatible memory card into the printer's card slot? This could be due to faulty memory card.
Also, please refer to Memory Cards Supported by the Lexmark P315 Photo Jetprinter.

Hello,I haven't been able to use my printer for some time and the ink heads are blocked,can you help please?


To clean the cartridge via the operator panel, follow the steps below:
  1. Press the Menu button once. The Photo Menu will appear.
  2. Press the down arrow until Clean Cartridge (Press SELECT) appears.
  3. Press Select to begin the cleaning process.
  4. When the page has finished printing, press Stop/Clear to exit the Photo Menu.
However, if you have made several tries already yet cartridges are still not printing properly, it may be time for you to replace those old cartridges with new ones.

P315 print cartrige error


What we surmised is that the little wire contacts on the print cartridge were bad. One suggestion was to use a pencil eraser over the area where the small wire dots are on the cartridge, then wipe clean with a lint free cloth. That didn't work either so I exchanged the cartridge and the problem went away.

You mention two problems, are they both still active? The memory card issue could be a defective card; I've had brand new cards not work a number of times. It could also be a defective card reader in the printer but its more likely the memory card may simply need to be re-formatted. - Save any pictures you may have on the card to your PC if you need to keep them. - Format the card using the camera utilities. Do not use the computer to perform the format. - Try it again. If formatting the card doesn?t do it you might try another card you know works. If it does work in your printer then its probably the card, if not that strongly suggest the printer card reader is at fault. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
