SOURCE: how do i refill Lexmark prospect SE pro208 Ink Car...

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.

      Prospect pro205 not printing red


      Step one, do a deep clean printhead, which if you have a touch panel on the printer, go to the ink the ink menu - on the top right of the printer panel, press More Options - then choose the option Deep clean printhead.
      If you have a non-touch panel printer, press the Setup button, and go to the Maintenance menu, then choose the option Deep clean printhead.
      If this doesn't fix it then you may need to update the printer firmware. Here is a link:

      What ink do I buy for the Pro205?


      The Lexmark Prospect Pro205 printer uses the 100 standard cartridges (black, cyan, magenta and yellow) which offers around 170 ISO Pages; and the 100XL high yield cartridges (black, cyan, magenta and yellow). These have a higher sticker price, but contain almost 3 times as much ink as their standard yield cousins. Please click on the link for the compatible cartridges for your printer: http://bit.ly/lcgWB1
      I hope this helps.

      Lexmark prospect pro 205 not supported by this all in one


      Please make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges. Lexmark printers work best with original supplies. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from the ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.

      Our Lexmark Prospect Pro205 has sufficient ink in the black cartridge. The error message says there is interference with the black ink cartridge. Black ink does not print, but color inks print.
