Put brand new lexmark 28 cartridge just 4 days ago. Maybe used 10 times. Computer says ink is low and won't print anymore. However, can still make copies.


It could be just a slight communication failure between your cartridges and the printer. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting them into the cartridge carrier.
I hope this helps.

My printer told me to replace the black cartridge, which I did. It still continue to say the black cartridge needs replacing even though there is a brand new one in there. How can I resolve?


This usually happens for two reasons. The first is that many people often forget to remove the protective plastic off of the circuit contacts on the bottom of the cartridge. These circuits allow the printer to communicate with the cartridge so that it can detect ink levels and such. The second reason is a less obvious one, and probably constitutes the most common cause for your particular problem. Over the life of a cartridge, repeated use causes minute amounts of ink to leak out. This ink can collect on the print head (what makes contact with the circuit board part). The ink on the print head will then sometimes form a coat on the part of the printer that makes contact with the cartridge. If this happens, the printer will be unable to communicate with the cartridge--meaning it won't be able to detect that a new cartridge has been installed.

To clean the print head, remove the ink cartridge and set it aside. In the print cartridge carriage (the part of the printer where you insert the cartridge), find the area where the printer contacts the cartridge circuitry. Gently clean it with a damp cloth. Use a clean area of the cloth with each wipe so that you don't wipe the ink back onto the contact. If you have trouble getting the ink off, spray some windex onto the cloth (NOT INTO THE PRINTER). When ink no longer transfers onto the cloth, allow 5 minutes or so for any dampness to evaporate off the printer. Reinstall the cartridge and cross your fingers.

Hopefully this will help you out. Ink on the print head is usually the problem in cases such as this. If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

How do i change my lexmark x4650 print cartrige?


Installing/Replacing your ink cartridges:
1. Open the printer, and then press down on the cartridge carrier levers. printmastert_52.jpg

2. Remove the used print cartridge or cartridges. 3. If you are installing new print cartridges, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the color cartridge, insert the cartridge in the right carrier, and then close the color cartridge carrier lid. 4. If a black cartridge is included in the box contents, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the black cartridge, insert the cartridge in the left carrier, and then close the black cartridge carrier lid. 5. Close the printer.

Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

Print cartridges missing or not detected


Are they new cartridges?

If so, have you removed the clear plastic protection strips from the cartridge heads?

2. Select the Solution Center.
3. When the Solution Center appears, click on the Maintenance button.
4. Select the option to Install a new print cartridge. The carrier should slide over at this point and allow you to insert and/or remove cartridges.

Not printing


The remaining levels of the following ink cannot be correctly detected.
Color
The following ink is running low.
Black [830]
Prepare a new ink cartridge.
The resulting print quality may not be satisfactory, if printing is continued under this condition.
If either black or color ink cartridge has run out, you can set the printer to continue printing with the other cartridge from the Ink Cartridge Settings on the Maintenance tab of the printer driver.

Incorrect ink level reading


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
