Will the Lexmark C720 print with only the black


There are some Lexmark color laser printers that are capable of black-only printing w/o the color cartridges installed, unfortunately, the Lexmark C720 printer is not capable of printing with only the black cartridge installed.

Cartridge Error message on our Lexmark X5150


The Lexmark machines are designed to kick out anything it suspects may be refilled. If your old cartridge has bad print nozzles this may be tripping the error. Printers are typically for sensitive with their color cartridges anyway because the manufacturers make more money on the color ones. You can try looking around the settings on the machine and in the printer preferences to see if you can tell it to ignore the ink levels and see if you can continue to print.

I have a lexmark X5470 bought a lexmark #33 color cartridge. the printer states: right cartridge incorrect. at the store it said that it is compatable with my printer. how do i get my printer to work?


According to the Lexmark site an number 33 color cartridge is the correct color cartridge for the printer.

Are you trying to print potographs? If so, then you would need the #32 cartridge and the color cartridge together in the priter.

If you believe that the cartridge is defective, contact Lexmark at 1-800-232-3000 and let them know you received a defective cartidge.

RResetting Cartridges after refilling


Can't be reset. The Lexmark 32 & 33 (and porbably som others) contain a low ink sensor in the cartridge that once activated can NOT be reset. The key would be you have to refill before the low ink sensor gets activated. Don't know at what ink level that is, probably around 1/4 remaining.

Printer installed & ready but wont print


found solution: driver software had an error while installing & only installed half the proper software. i had to uninstall the lexmark 5200 serious software completely & download it again from the lexmark website.
i talked to the lexmark customer service live chat line on their website & found out what the problem was. they are very helpful, i highly recommend using it if you have a problem with your lexmark product!

pretty simple solution, its just a little time consuming.
