The EC5 error code indicates a short has been detected in one of your cartridges. Open the printer and remove both cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover and check for any errors. Open the printer cover again and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to pop up. Or you can try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

Printer error flashing 1 then E then C, after changing printer cartridge on lexmark x650, which installed correctly.

Try turning of printer, disconnect from power, Now removing ALL Ink, clean both the cartridge, and where they go, make sure is real clean. Now replace them. Then reconnect Power, & turn on. Hopefully this will have reset the printer. If NOT then your printer for what ever reason has developed a fault, OR that new cartridge is incompatible for whatever reason, perhaps a refilled, or counterfeit one?

X2650. False Paper Jam indicator.

There are a few options for you. You can power it completely off for a few moments to see if that clears the error. During that time I would recommend using a can of air to spray out the inside of the printer. The sensors can get dust on them and make it appear that you have a paper jam. Also if there is a small piece somehwere the pressurized air will hopefully dislodge it.

Good Luck!

Problem with cartriges

EC5 = Print Head Short. Short test detected short circuit in printhead. Fix is to replace print cartridge(s).

Sounds like one or both of your new cartridges are defective and need to be returned to where you purchased them.

Error on newly installed printer.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
