Cheap ink/refill suggestions for lexmark printer x4550

I have the lexmark printer x4550. It cannot be refilled by a professional, and I found out that the printer is so smart that it knows what cartridges I have used in it and will not let me use that same cartridge even if I try filling it myself. Please help. Thanks.

Yes, always use genuine cartridges. Printers these days have an inbuilt sensor to detect generic or refilled cartridges..

HOW TO REFILL LEXMARK X5495 PRINTER


When you try refilling your ink cartridges, you are taking chances that something may go wrong. I would search the web and purchase re-manufactured ink cartridges, which would be less expensive than the new ones from Lexmark.

Hi ive just bought a lexmark printer its model no is z2300 im having problems locating ink cartridges or compatible ones please can you help im almost out of ink!


You are going to have to refill the cartidges you have, They no longer manufacture them. Here is a link I found for you for the best deal on the cheap tool and Ink that you will need.

http://www.ink-refills-ink.com/printer/Lexmark+Z-2300+Ink/16264/?src=gpsearch&gpprod=Lexmark+Z-2300&gptype=bulk

Also, Before you refill your cartidges I suggest you clean the print nozzles with automotive drygas on a clean piece of lint free cloth. Soak the cloth with the alcohol and hold it on the nozzles for at least 1 minute. After you fill the cartridges run the clean printhead function as soon as you put them back in.
Never rub the nozzles, this will kill them. Follow these instructions and they will last almost indefinately.
If you need further assistance feel free to contact me and I will call you For any of your computer tech needs for free. I'm retired at 42 and I do this as one of my favorite hobbies.
Ps. Don't forget to vote Fixya for me when you get this printer all filled up. Another thing, the more ink you buy the better the deal you get. Way cheaper than buying new cartridges.

Hope this helps you,
George

Ink levels on lexmark z1300


I bought this same printer and after trying numerous things to refill the cartridges (which are detailed at fixyourownprinter.com), I have concluded that if you are using black cartridge #28 and/or color cartridge #29 you cannot refill because these are the "return program" cartridges. These specific cartridges cannot be refilled and technically any attempt to refill them is against Lexmark contract which you agreed to when you opened the sealed bag the cartridge came in.(Dont believe me? check the bag) I think the bag also said that there can be criminal charges filed against you if you refill these cartridges but I seriously doubt that lexmark would go after you since it has never happened before. My recommendation is to purchase the more expensive 34 and 35 high yield cartridges which I believe but cannot confirm will let you refill. What did you expect from lexmark? This printer is sold at a loss and do you really think that they would sell you a printer so darn cheap and not expect to make that money back somehow? These printers are usually picked up by cheapskates (such as myself) who have no intention to buy any more cartridges other then the initial one. Well ive learned the hard way that lexmark as well as other printer companies are now fighting back. If you want cheap ink I hear that KODAK is selling a printer that is a bit more expensive then the other brands but has very cheap cartridges. Oh and If you did buy the high yield cartridges then please reply so I can update the thread on fixyouownprinter.com and let everyone know.

Hope this helps makes things a bit more clear. Thanks for reading!
