Yes, there are kits available on the market that help you do that. But honestly, i wouldn't recommend doing that, as they only tend to screw up the printer in the long run. Moreover, printers these days have sensors that detect refilled or 3rd party cartridges, and will not work properly. This is being done by the printer manufacturers to prevent people from using cartridges other than their own....

I refilled the cartridge but it still willnot print


Please note that Lexmark does not recommend use of a refilled cartridge. Refilling a cartridge can affect print quality and may cause damage to the printer. For best results, use Lexmark supplies.
You may try to re-insert the cartridges and make sure they are seated properly or clean the cartridge nozzles. Manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from possible dirt and clogs. Then, reinsert the cartridges in to the printer. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, please replace your refilled cartridges with new genuine Lexmark supplies.

Lexmark x4650 refilled ink cartridge but printer says it's empty and won't print


Lexmark does not recommend using refilled cartridges. However, if you have successfully used one before, there's a possibility that the refilled cartride got damaged along the process of refilling. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. Or better yet, try to purchase a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

My lexmark x6690 wont print after i refilled the cartridges,it tells me the cartridges needs re placement,how can i overide this ?


if you are using cartridges number 36 and 37 (or 14,15/ 23,24/ 28,29/ 41,42), you can only override it by buying new cartridges. But they need to have a letter A after the number, i.e. 36A and 37A- those cartridges can be refilled, the ones you get with the printer can't. They are, as Lexmark calls them, "return program cartridges", which means they can be used only once. "Return program" means you can send them back to Lexmark and they will refill them for you (not sure if that is true, but that's what Lexmark says on their website)

Hope that helps!

I need to reset my ink levels so my X3550 refilled cartridges


If you have refilled the cartridges you got along with the printer, you can't reset them. 23 and 24 are not meant to be refilled. They are what Lexmark call "return program cartridges"- they can't be refilled, you can send them back to Lexmark ( that's why they are called "return cartridges"). You need to buy either 23A and 24A or 34 and 35, those cartridges are refillable.
Here is a link to Lexmark, with a list of cartridge compatibility for your printer:

IBM Infoprint1120 and Lexmark T520 toner cartridges.


You cannot use Lexmark toner cartridges in IBM models and vice-versa because the toner carts have a smartchip that identifies the toner to the printer. IBM printers expect to see IBM toners and Lexmark machines expect to see Lexmark toners. If you put the wrong cartridge in you will get '32' Unsupported print cartridge error.
Some refillers may swap the smartchip when they refill cartridges and this would be the only reason why you may have seen it done before.. IS your current toner a refilled one? It's technically possible to make an IBM printer into a Lexmark printer to accept Lexmark toners by replacing the System Board... but why would you bother doing that...just use the right toner.

Printing with generic cartridges


Lexmark International does not recommend the use of third party inks or inkjet cartridge refill kits. Genuine Lexmark inks and cartridges are perfectly matched to the printing system. Using genuine Lexmark ink and cartridges ensures that every document produced is of the highest possible print quality, providing long-term dependable service from your Lexmark printer.

Lexmark cannot assure the excellent print quality and reliability of its inkjet cartridges after a cartridge has been refilled. Using incompatible inks in an attempt to extend the life of a genuine Lexmark cartridge beyond its recommended usage can cause failures in several different areas of the printer. Inkjet cartridges and printer failures caused by refilling or a third party ink are not covered by your Lexmark printer Warranty, Extended Warranty or Service Agreement.

Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Is it possible to refill ink cartridge on Lexmark x6690 printer?


Take out all cartridges, switch printer off and then on again and let printer see that there are no cartridges. Do this 5 times, it resets the cartridges. Then install refilled cartridges

I refilled a 33 colour cartridge still says low


I would like to inform you that Lexmark printers does not support refilled cartridges. Please note that #33 cartridge is know as a rushmore cartridge and in this cartridge it has memory chip on it to identifiy the ink estimation. hence it is not possible to change the low ink indication.

Please note: using refilled cartridge may void ur printer warranty.

I need help with getting my printer to read that I refilled the Cartridge!


There are many different tries I have read about & even suggested to people & tried my self. Most fail & I end up feeling bad. The truth about most printers one way or another they keep track of the cartridges. (They remember). Some have small chip & others keep track through software. If your going to re-fill your cartridges I suggest you keep three cartridges handy for each color. Mark them 1 2 3. As one emties use the next & so on. Never allow the ink to dry up in a cartridge & always store them standing up. If you lay them on their side the ink may dry at the nozzles. (Not Good). If you receive an error that a refilled cartridge needs replaced. Ignore it & see it still prints. It just may. Bottom line. Printers are cheep & theres a reason. I'll bet you already know why. You know it! Cause the ink cost more. Two replacements & you could have bought a new printer, maybe three. So Hansonkirk, for now buy your lexmark ink new & when it emties drop a refilled in. Keep your refilled cartridges in a cool dark place waiting it's turn.
