Cartridge installation error

I received your solution. I do not accept it until I purchase two new cartridges, install them and see if that fixes the problem.

    At your suggestion, I replaced both cartridges with new ones and still get the same error message. Can someone else on your team suggest something else?

    To answer you question, when I attempt to print, the alarm light goes on and blinks 7 times. The message for that is, a cartridge is not installed properly. Open the printer cover and check the cartridges positions.



    I did that, and even removed them and reinstalled them. Still I received the same message. Therefore, I do not accept your solution, nor should I be charged for this problem. I will however, use your service in the future.



    I will attempt to resolve my problem this time, by going back to the store where I purchased the printer less than 2 years ago.



    Thank you for you attempt to help me.

INkCartrige error 50c. Will not print. Display this note each time I try to make copy or print from computer.


Hi there

You should always mention the printer model as well as what operating system you use.

This is what i found on LEXMARK's website about your error, and it seems you have one or 2 faulty cartridges, or you are using compatible cartridges instead of Lexmark Originals:

Problem Error messages; Error: "Cartridge Error 50C"; Cartridge error; Black cartridge missing; Color cartridge missing Solution Cartridge Error 50C
Your print cartridge has shorted.

  1. Power off your All-in-One and unplug it.

  2. Plug in your All-in-One again and turn it on.

  3. Uninstall and then reinstall your cartridges.

  4. If this does not resolve the issue, try the troubleshooting steps for the other cartridge errors below.

Error: Black Cartridge Missing
The black cartridge is not installed. (Install cartridge PN 82)
Error: Color Cartridge Missing
The color cartridge is not installed (Install cartridge PN 83)
Cartridge Error
Complete the following instructions:

  1. Power off your All-in-One.

  2. Use both hands to lift up the scanner unit until the scanner support holds it open.

  3. Turn the All-in-One on. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

  4. Remove the color print cartridge.

  5. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  6. If the error message reappears, replace the black print cartridge with a new print cartridge.
    If it does not repeat steps 1-3 and then go to step 7.

  7. Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black print cartridge.

  8. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  9. If the error message occurs again, replace the color cartridge.

  10. If an error message reappears, repeat steps 1-3 and reinstall both print cartridges.

  11. Lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

  12. If you receive the error message again, replace both cartridges.
Hope it helps

Brand new lexmark original cartridge is not recognised. error report' no cartridge'. all contacts cleaned machine dismantled and cleaned and reassembled. has done this before on occasion with refilled...


1. Open the top front cover of the printer. If the display DOES NOT read Close cover or Insert cartridge, the 32 error is not caused by the toner cartridge and printer service will be required to fix the problem.

2. Make sure the correct toner cartridge is installed for this printer model.
1. Check Lexmark for a list of compatible cartridges for your printer.
2. If the wrong toner cartridge is installed, remove it and install the correct one.

3. If the correct toner cartridge is installed, it may not be seated correctly. To ensure that this is not the cause of the error, do the following:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Reseat the toner cartridge.
3. Close the lid.
4. Power the printer back on and check the display.

4. If reseating the toner cartridge does not clear the error message and the error started as soon as you installed this particular toner cartridge, the cartridge may be broken. You can check this as follows:
1. Power off the printer and then reinstall the old cartridge. (You can also try a different new cartridge to see if that clears the error.)
2. If the error does disappear, the problem may lie with this cartridge. Please contact the point of purchase, especially if the cartridge is brand new out of the box.

5. If the error cannot be cleared by putting in a new toner cartridge or one that is known to be working, the printer may require service to fix the problem.

Phaser 4510 replace toner message won't print until new toner installed - new toner installed and still has the replace toner message


  • This product can be configured to use a metered or non-metered Toner / Print Cartridge. A non-metered machine requires a non-metered cartridge be installed to operate, while a metered machine can accept both a metered or non-metered cartridge to operate.
  • Make sure the correct cartridge is used for the machine. If you are receiving metered print cartridges but the machine will not accept them, contact your reseller or supplier to ensure that your machine is properly set up as a metered machine, and that the metered PIN has been entered

  • Make sure you don´t have any stickers on the toner box.
  • If you sure all paper and stickers are out then reset the nvm values from the device in order to reset the printer information.
