Lexmark X3480 reset codes

Every time I insert the ink cartridge the printer displays a message saying that the Cartridge is incorrect, I have made sure that it is the correct cartridge but it is still displaying the same message. I have tried to find some reset codes on the internet I could not seem to find any. I also contacted Lexmark via e-mail but they wasn't much help.
Would you be able to help me?

I believe this may help. The Lexmark printer/scanners are touchy and need to be "restarted" sometimes since their internal "brain" gets scrambled. Sounds like this is what has happened to you.

Turn the printer off - if it won't - just unplug the darn thing! Then, reboot your computer - and just before you re-boot, plug the printer in.

Hopefully this will reset it.

Lexmark printer/scanner load software and other things during the boot-up process that you are not even aware of. I know this is not desirable, but that is what they do and they sometimes require a complete shut-down and re-boot to reset.

Hope that helps. If it doesn't - you may have a corrupt driver. Go to the Lexmark site and re-download the driver and re-start from scratch. Hopefully it will work out. Best of luck

Screen says 'incorrect cartridge' Lexmark X3480 cartridge fitted


The only cartridge that fits in your printer is the 18C0788 #1 cartridge if you have put another cartridge into your printer that is not the #1 cartridge I recommend you remove it and replace it with the correct cartridge.

Try this... Unplug the printer from power and restore power... also, reboot the computer. if that doesn't work, try reinstalling the cartridge or reinstalling the software. If there is an option to ignore these messages, it will be in the options srction of your printer manager program.

Lexmark 4530 right cartridge incorrect message. unplugged unit, cleaned cartridge nothing works.


The compatible cartridges for the X4530 Lexmark printer are the # 23,23A,24,24A,31,34,35. If you have the correct cartridge number and still says cartridge incorrect, try this steps.
1. Get a damp and a dry paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. ( try this for around 5 times )
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. ( try this around 5 times )
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Remove the power adaprtor behind the printer.
6. Using the dry paper towel, clean the metal contacts on the cartridge carrier inside the printer. ( try this 5 times )
7. Place the Cartridge back to the printer, connect the power adaptor.
8. Check if there is any error message. If same problem persist, try to contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Cartridge error


How I solved this problem was, I took out the color cartridge (which seem to be the one giving the error message) and worked only with the black ink (and chose print black and white )

My color ink cartridge had been refilled at Walgreens. The Black ink cartridge is an original Lexmark
