Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. They tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance since refillers don't have access to Lexmark ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.
Note that when a cartridge is refilled it can no longer register its ink level.
According to your problem it seems your cartridge has been damaged or choked so change your cartridge. Because some times when we use refilled cartridge, Ink goes dry and printer's sensor can not sense the ink.
“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink
cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print
head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be
covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.
First, Lexmark does not now or ever support the use of a third party cartridge or a refilled cartridge ink cartridge even if it is a Lexmark cartridge. Lexmark considers this to product tampering.
That said, please get a new Lexmark cartridge that is designed for your model of printer and see if it works. If you still get the failure, use a lint free slightly dampend cloth to wipe the contacts where the new cartridge goes. If that does not work, call Lexmark Technical support and see if there is still any warranty left on the printer.
Worst comes to worst, you can just replace the printer given the cost of ink jet printers nowadays.
There are many different tries I have read about & even suggested to people & tried my self. Most fail & I end up feeling bad. The truth about most printers one way or another they keep track of the cartridges. (They remember). Some have small chip & others keep track through software. If your going to re-fill your cartridges I suggest you keep three cartridges handy for each color. Mark them 1 2 3. As one emties use the next & so on. Never allow the ink to dry up in a cartridge & always store them standing up. If you lay them on their side the ink may dry at the nozzles. (Not Good). If you receive an error that a refilled cartridge needs replaced. Ignore it & see it still prints. It just may. Bottom line. Printers are cheep & theres a reason. I'll bet you already know why. You know it! Cause the ink cost more. Two replacements & you could have bought a new printer, maybe three. So Hansonkirk, for now buy your lexmark ink new & when it emties drop a refilled in. Keep your refilled cartridges in a cool dark place waiting it's turn.
