    I have the same problem. I tried to refill my cartridges at least four or five times and it will not print for me. It keeps saying order new ink. I just thought that maybe they made the printer so that it would not work if you refilled the cartridge. It goes through ink so fast, it seems like every week I'm buying new ink.

After refilling my cartridge it shows ink level low for one cartridge and gives two error messages for every printing but prints. But for another cartridge it does not print and give message to buy a new...


Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.

When i get my ink cartridge refilled printer says cartridge low on ink


The magic words "refilled cartridge" says it all. Like all the other makers they put a little bit of ID info on each cartridge. This is detected when "replacing" there own existing empty / dried up cartridge.

Refilling uses the same cartridge and so no new cartridge ... so to the simple low tech sensor .. you are still out of ink. Lex usually asks questions to verify old new etc. Don't worry enjoy the low cost re filling gives you. You can also turn off the messages .. GL be happy

Printer does not recognize carts


I have refilled my cartridges many, many times. A messy job, but well worth the savings. Never over fill, handle carefully.
The printer will give an error message, but just press cancel, do not order a new cartridge, Your refilled cartridge will work on the lexmark x5470. Good luck.

Lexmark does not allow refilled cartridge on any of their products.

Lexmark, HP and Canon and-many other vendors use proprietary code to protect themselves against the damage of OEM inks.

All companies will void warranties.

Refilled x5495 cartridge


hey jose022-it sounds like the ink on the header has dried up . Try pulling the cartridge back out and blotting it on a clean napkin .I f there isn't a small display of the three colors on the napkin , the cartridge end probably dried up before you refilled it.In this case you need to use the head cleaner kit and follow the instuctions that comes with it.
If there isn't aclear low of all three colors coming out the sensor will recognize it as only as the previous empty cartridge.




good luck !

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.

Lexmark advertises the cartridges supplied with this printer as cart. #28 and #29. They claim these are nonrefillable. The refillable cartridges are #28a,29a, 34 and 35, the last two being the high yield carts. Make sure you have one of these.
