Top 20 Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer Questions & Answers


There is a bit of a problem with this printer. Lexmark are not supporting it under Windows 7. If you attach the printer via USB Windows might be persuaded to look for a driver for you. This would get basic functionality going if it works. Use the link Brett Duxbury has given. Some things you could try are the Vista drivers and then the XP drivers. Even if it does come up as a scanner you will have to use the Windows built in scanning software and not the Lexmark one. In all seriousness give this printer to an XP user and go and buy a non-lexmark printer.

In the Google.com search box type:

nameofyourbrand + model + "driver download"

Be careful. Virus originators posing as driver providers are thick and heavy on the Internet. Virus scan any downloaded files before running them.

You need the Lexmark CD which has the scanner software. If Windows 7 downloaded the print drivers automatically rather than you using a CD to make the printer work then this is why it prints but you have no scanning. You maybe able to download the CD software but it's usually better with Lexmark to never lose the CD.

If it is printing, but there is nothing on the paper, it would lead me to believe that the print heads would require cleaning. Have you done maintenance on it recently? I do not think it would print if it were out of toner totally but perhaps that is an option also?

I don't know about Lexmark, but I know that with my own printer, the instructions say that if you are getting blank print-outs, try taking out each toner, give it a little tap/shake, then put in back in.

The problem could be due to a communication failure between one of the printheads (cartridges) and the All-In One (AIO) or by a short in one if the printheads. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

You may try to clean the rollers using a slightly damped paper towel.

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:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 5100 Series folder.
  4. 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 cartridge nozzles.

If you are using one of Lexmark printers that has the new ink system based upon individual tanks (like the following models: S300, S400, S500, S600, Pro200, Pro700, Pro800 & Pro900 Series), these models require all cartridges to have ink them to continue printing.
However, there are some previous Lexmark models that are able to continue printing even if one cartridge is empty.
Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this answer your concern, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

Make sure that you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges and the correct versions for your model. The Lexmark X5495 takes 28/34 black or 29/35 color cartridges.
Try to re-insert your left cartridge and make sure it is properly seated in the carrier.
You can also try to reinsert your old left cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

If you are encountering power problems with your printer, please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure the power cord is plugged in securely and directly to the power outlet. Power surge protectors can draw power away from the printer.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet and the back of the printer and then reconnect it.
  • Check the power supply box (if there is one) to see if it is warm or cold, as there could be a defective power supply issue.
  • If there is access to a voltmeter, test the power supply to ensure that it registering the correct amount of voltage (most Lexmark printers have a 30Volt output).
  • Make sure the correct power supply is connected to the printer.
