I recently had my ink refilled using my x3470 lexmark but when trying to print it says my ink level is still low. Should I get my money back from walgreens or not.

I've just took my ink cartridge to Walgreens where they refill ink cartridges, and Lexmarks is one of the ones they provide this service for. However, once I got home and installed them in the printer, I...


Seeing as the printer was working before you had it filled at Walgreens, I would have to say that there is a problem with the cartridge, buy a new one and if it doesn't work try to find a new Lexmark that can use this cartridge!

My lexmark X5410 will not accept the black and colored refilled ink cartridges from walgreens. It keeps reporting that the right cartridge is missing.


If you have refilled the cartridges 28 and 29, it's pretty normal that your printer won't print. Those cartridges are not for refill (they can be refilled, but won't work once the printer says they are empty). If you have refilled a 28A and 29A and it doesn't recognize the one of the cartridges, try removing them and clean the electric contacts with a dry cloth. Put them back in. If that doesn't help, I suggest you buy a new cartridge.

My Lexmark X5410 Printer will not recognize a refill cartridge.


Hi there

This is the same old story with Lexmark printers, you cant do any thing about it the chips have a small fuse inside them and soon as they emty it blows the fuse, and thats it so I beleave the only way is to buy new ink, or a diferent printer.
Not know any fix for them myself sorry.

Can try.
Turn printer off. Unplug power cord and other cables. Wait 30 seconds. Plug cords and cables back in.

Also seen this on the net.
Use clear tape over left hand row of sensors on front of cartridge and re-insert. ink now shows with question mark but reads as full and prints fine.

but yeah, best bet, never ever buy lexmark.....:)

If that doesn't work, try disabling your ink monitoring software.

Refilled ink cartridges at Walgreens, printer won't recognize


Hello!
28 and 29 are not meant to be refilled. They can physically be refilled, but they won't work. That is because Lexmark has put in a smart chip that doesn't allow refill.
You need to buy 28A and 29A or 34 and 35, those cartridges can be refilled with no problem.

My Lexmark 1240 printer has a new Bkack ink in it (Lexmark 16 cartridge) but still does not print black text or lines.


Check to make sure you have removed the plastic covering on the new ink cartridge contact.  Run a calibration/alignment test on your printer. (If you're not sure how to do this, Google "how to align cartridges on----- your modle printer).  Finally, you may want to do a "hard-reset" on the printer. Turn it off, unplug it for 30 seconds and try again. 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.

Refilled cartridges


Walgreens had gave me the wrong print cartridges back. They had my info on them but they belong to a HP printer instead of a Lexmark. We took them back and had to go thru a lot to get them straighten out. My cartridges were nowhere to be found so I'm sure the HP customer will be looking for their cartridges also. From now on no more refilled cartridges for me. Lexmark only! Thanks for the help.
