The Lexmark X5650 cartridge error can bug some users from time to time, but there’s nothing to worry about, and it can always be fixed with some easy troubleshooting.
The problem may result from a failure of the connection between one of the cartridges and the AIO. Most of the printheads may have a short one in them, too.
- First, to solve the issue, one has to make sure that the printer is on. Then the cover of the printer should be removed. The print cartridge carrier normally stops between movements at the loading position when the All in One is in use. The carrier should be in the center, and if it is not, the printer should be unplugged from the power source and carefully placed in the center.
- Remove both the cartridge from the carrier, and the cover of the printer should be closed. The black box power supply behind the printer where the power cord goes in-must be unplugged and plugged in again after 30 seconds.
- If the printer is switched on again, the cartridge must be inserted first. The printer cover can be re-installed, and if there are no defects, the cartridge can be re-installed, and the printer cover firmly re-installed.
- Replace the cartridge that caused the error with the new Lexmark cartridge. Print a test document to make sure the printer is working properly.
Various other error messages are coming up, and most of them occur when the cartridge is improperly installed. Misinstallation of cartridge replacements causes communication difficulties, or there may be a problem with alignment. Any other foreign body debris blocking the path of the cartridge may be another explanation. The toner sensor could also not work correctly, so installing a new cartridge would be a warning.
There are also some simple solutions to these issues, and these include checking that the alignment of each cartridge is safe until the printer is turned off. Cartridges can also be tightly secured or snapped in places. The control panel will work properly. Often, once the cartridge is returned and the power is switched on, allow the printer some time to read the cartridges. Repeat the process if the problem continues and replace it with a new cartridge.
