Question about Lexmark X7350 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Incorrect ink level reading

The printer doesn't seem to register that I have inserted a new ink cartirdge -black or colour. I'm sorry, but due to cost I have used refilled cartridges -refilled in a high street shop that advertises on Tv. I follow the instructions to insert the cartridges. But the message 'ink level low' still appears and the print quality is the same as with the old cartridge: it is faded, even on 'best' print; there are sometimes vertical lines with no print. I have looked at the 'maintenance' section of the 'lexmark productivity suite', and printed a test page, done 'clean to fix horizontal streaks', looked on the help section and trouble shoot section. Today I have ordered more cartridges -remanufactured and originals. Any advice please? Thankz

    Thanks for exlaining this. It didn't seem to make any difference putting in a lexmark cartridge, whipping it out and putting back in the remanufactured one... but thanks for the suggestion. I have decided to only buy lexmark cartridges... bit of a shame really. Yeah, 2 cartridges cost more than the printer!

Kiwipom, While ink cartridges look like plastic cups that only hold ink...they are not. The information the printer needs to think it has a "NEW" set of ink cartridges is on the cartridge itself. You must fakeout the printer to believe you are inserting "new lexmark" inks. Printer companies make money from the repeated sale of the ink, not the printer itself. I had an old epson that I would refill I would then have to place pieces of tape on the cartridge turn the printer on, remove the cartridge move the tape to another side of the cartridge turn on again etc. Anyway lexmark may need the same. When the new original cartridges show try them first to get the printer "thinking" correctly. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Printer is not registering new cartridge, which is full and an HP "02" . Printer was out of cyan blue for a while, printing in black and white, then replaced it. Ink is flowing, checked with...

New cartridges that are not HP brand can sometimes give these errors. If they are HP brand then the issue is with the sensor that reads the cartridges "chip" The ink levels are not read like the fuel in your car, there is a page counter on the cartridge and when it hits 0 then it assumes there is no ink. So the issue seems to be it is not reading the chip correctly. Try removing all the cartridges. turn the printer off for 10 mins and replace the cartridges 1 by 1. This can sometimes correct the issue. If not the pins that read the cartridges chip can be checked for dirt of dry ink that may be interfering with the pins touching the cartridge. these pins are in the Cartridge holder for each colour, inside the printer. use a torch to see them properly.
Good Luck. Regards GM

Keeps saying insert colour cartridge when we have just bought a new cartridge of correct spec. Says incorrect colour cartridge installed.Impossible to get past!!!

Hi,The most common reason for missing or incorrect colors is a print cartridge with one of the following problems:
  • One or more of the ink colors is empty. The black ink and all three colors of ink in the tri-color cartridge must be available or colors will be incorrect or missing. Under normal usage, the print cartridge will run low on one color of ink shortly before all ink colors are emptied.
  • The protective tape is not removed from a new cartridge.
  • Contacts on the cartridge are not making proper contact with the print carriage.
  • The cartridge is remanufactured or refilled.
  • The cartridge is defective.

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.

Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.

Just found this partial fix: "Try removing the color cartridge and try printing with the color cartridge out. If it gives you a message that the cartridge is missing, it will still allow you to print by clicking "continue". And from there, it will allow you to print black. I think it really is a problem with your color cartridge." From searching the net, this seems to be a major problem with no solution from Dell!

Printer not printing

Unfortunately, like most multi cartridge ink jet printers when one ink is empty the printer will cease printing regardless of whether you just want to print in black and white and you have plenty of black ink left. I have heard of people tricking the printer into believing the cartridge is full by placing coloured tape etc in front of the ink sensing device but I am not sure how the Brother senses the ink levels as i have some aftermarket ink cartridges for mine which seem to be completely non-opaque (unlike the originals). The need to have colour cartridges in even if you only ever print with black ink is good news for Brother as the MFC-210c uses a large amount of ink during it's routine cleaning cycles (that you cant stop) and will empty all 3 cartridges in under 6 months without ever printer a single drop of colour ink. Sorry about all the bad news, at least your not alone......
