I have a Lexmark X5495 printer and I had it refilled , I still have a message that goes "Order new ink" or something and i check the cartridge but it is full. I try restarting the printer and even the computer but the printer STILL won't let me print.
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.

Once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer report it's true ink level. Just an FYI: you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.
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
“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.
I have a Lexmark X5495 printer and I had it refilled a couple of weeks ago, suddenly i have a message that goes "Order new ink" or something and i check the cartridge but it is still full. I try restarting the printer and even the computer but the printer STILL won't let me print.
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.
