I have a Lexmark Prospect SE Pro208 and let cartridges run empty. I then purchased refill ink made the proper hole and needled
ink into the cartridges. Only thing is that the printer does not measure how much ink is in the cartridge it guesses by quality, amount of ink used on each sheet. It uses the chip on the cartridge as a install date and serial #. when I tried to print it said
the cartridges were empty still. BUT!!! if I took a memory stick and stuck it in the printer port I could print the picture from the
mini screen. that would mean that the program installed on the computer was "edited" would that work to fix $100 of ink to be purchased??? just a thought.

Your cartridge may need to cleaned. On the printer operator panel, press Setup button -> Maintenance -> Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that doesn't help, your printer probably needs to be updated. The firmware update, available at http://bit.ly/p205fw, will help fix print quality issues.

SOURCE: How do you reset ink
Ink levels are usually calculated several ways. It typically does an average page count for the cartridges, and starts notifying you when you're running out of pages. There is also a microchip on the cartridge itself that notifies of the level. Sometimes there are even additional ways, such as cartridge weight, etc. If you're trying to reset the levels to get more life out of your cartridge, don't worry about it. It'll keep printing until the ink is gone. When you see the quality start to decline (IE colors aren't as vibrant, pages aren't as dark) that means it's time to start looking into more ink.
