Question about Lexmark X6570 InkJet Printer
I bought a 41A Lexmark Cartridge so I could refill it. however the printer does not recognize the refill cartridge and continues to show that I need to replace the color ink cartridge. How could I correct this problem
Please note that I am not an expert, in this field just an attorney and that is why I am putting my full disclaimer right here at the top---That i am not an expert but only speaking from experience.
Earlier this morning, I just pulled the cartridges to check the Lexmark print (X6570) cartridge numbers (41&42). When I typed these numbers in on inksell.com to retrieve the price and other information for these cartridges, they did not have any refill kits or anything of that nature for these specific cartridges.
To answer your question about why the printer is not detecting that your cartridge is full is probably because the cartridge has a chip in it that essentially disables it once the original manufacturer ink is empty. tHEY [Lexmark & Dell] do not want outside competition In other words, the printer manufacturers make the bulk of the money on selling new cartridges (for a fortune) . To make matters worse, they always seem to be half empty even though they are ‘brand-new’ ink cartridges The bottom line is that the faster you can go through a printer cartridge, they can sell many more of the cartridges that they are charging us a fortune for.
Needless to say, I am just going to go and get me another HP printer. My advice would be to check to see if ink-refill kits (see sites like inksell.com) are available for any future printers that u purchase.
