If white lines are present in the alignment page, then try this, warm some bottled water on the stove or microwave untill it almost boils. Then pour the water about a quarter of an inch deep in a plastic clean cup, place the printhead section of the cartridge, (the part that the ink sprays out of), in the water and let set for about 5 to 10 minutes. When you remove the cartridge from the water, dab it several times on a lint free paper towel or an old cotton cloth, DO NOT RUB or touch the printhead with your fingers or anything else. Then using a cotton swab dampened in rubbing alcohol, clean the shiney electrical contacts on the cartridge and where they touch in the machine. If you still cant align, then probably its time to replace the cartridge. You can only refill so many times before the printing elements burn out with usage.
Hope this helps,

Refilled ink printer. still shows empty on the printer,s screen


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and printer/cartridge performance.
Please note that once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

I have try to print but its not printing. i've allready fill the ink still the page come out blank.


It could be due to the refilled cartridge that you are using. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance.
You can try to clean the cartridge nozzles. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. On the printer control panel, press Copy.
  2. Press Options until Maintenance is highlighted.
  3. Press the right arrow until Align Cartridges or Clean Cartridges appears, and then press Select. A test page will then be printed forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print your document again to verify that the cartridges are working.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your cartridges with new genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Alignment problem. just refilled black ink cartridge..seeing message that printer is not aligned and remove tape from cartridge, but i see no tape


1) remove the cartridge and check it is not leaking. If it is, the printhead area on cart will be flooded with ink. Removing couple of ml from cart will stop it leaking.
2) If the cart looks clean (not leaking), stamp the printhead on some folded tissue paper or paper towell. It should leave a solid black stripe about 10mm long on the tissue. If it doesn't, your refill ink hasn't quite reached the printhead. You can blow little air into the breather hole (on top) to prime the printhead. Stop blowing when ink starts leaking at the printhead.
Clean the cartridge up before installing it.
3) If all above is ok and it still doesn't align properly, repeat above steps with the colour cartridge. The printer needs all colours working to perform the alignment process.

good luck with it

Another thing which is mentioned at their support site is quote:
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:

Lexmark (Invalid cartridges)


That printer uses Lexmark 32,33,34,35 cartridges. The branded cartridges should work. Have you contacted Lexmark's technical support center? Contact information is on www.lexmark.com. They should be able to get you going again.
