1 Answer

Have trawled all over the web...untill I found a sloution that worked for me!
1 Take out what looks like the battery pack ( your wire, plugs into this )
2 Ensure the green light goes out ( two pieces of wire crossing over at the contact point( like trying to fuse the battery ) will make the light go out immediately )
3 Take out the ink cartridge, Clean the ink cartridge with alcohol ( I used GIN! )..clean the internal contacts for the cartridge as well.
4 When dry ( let dry naturally )...put back the ink cartridge
5 Put back the "battery pack" and mains connection into this pack.
6 turn back on....system thinks you are low / out of ink but allows you to print..hope this works for you

I have done a refill with the inkjet cartridges and it is not working, this is #14 black and #15 coloured


Lexmark Printers doesn't Support Refilled Cartridges, When a Lexmark Cartridge is refilled it automatically blows the Fuse out of the cartridge so that it will not be recognized by the Printer, Please a Genuine Lexmark Cartridge and let me know if you face the same problem!
Good Luck!!

Try to remove both black and color cartridges from the printer. Close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert both cartridges and make sure they are properly seated and secured in the carrier. Close the cover. If error continues to show on the display screen even if interchangeably insert your 35 or 33 cartridge, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Hello, I now have a Lexmark x 5470 printer. My other model: x5495. Do both use same cart. # 28 /29? Thanks Mike


Your Lexmark X5470 printer uses 32/33 standard yield cartridges and 34/35 high yield cartridges only. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.

No color 5470


HELLO FIXYA..

THE FIX WAS TO UN-IN-STALL THE (5470) SOFTWARE AND RE-IN- STALL. I COULD MAKE COPIES FROM THE COPIER BUT NOT FROM COMPUTER(BLACK OR COLOR).THE COLOR PROBLEM APPEARS TO BE THE INK CARTRIDGES

I DO NOT KNOW IF THE PROBLEM WAS WITH THE SOFTWARE (CD) THAT WAS SENT WITH PRINTER OR IF I CAUSED THE TROUBLE MYSELF.

I WILL OBTAIN NEW INK CARTRIDGES TOMORROW AND CHECK THAT PORTION OF TROUBLE
IF IT DOES NOT CLEAR THE COLOR PROBLEM UP,I WILL UPDATE YOU..

THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN,

BGC

PS I RECEIVED SOME GOOD HELP FROM LEXMARK SUPPORT CENTER ALTHOUGH I HAD TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING HIM. HE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE.
