CANNOT USE A REFILL CARTRIDGE IN LEXMARK x3690

A previous printer let me print even though it showed "out of ink": the X3690 software does not let me print at all (except in black!). Is there a workround or a modification I can do?
thanks

No you cannot print with that model and most models if the ink is empty. The best you can do is get a new refill.

Why is my printer printing blank instead of black even though the cartridge is new?


If your printer uses a separate ink tank and print head, then likley your print head has failed and will need to be replaced.

I have enough black ink to print a few pages in black, but the printer won't print. What do I do?


I had a Epson printer that would not print or even allow me to use the scanner because the colored ink was out. Even though I had full black ink, it still would not let me print until i replaced the colored ink.

Epson printers have replaceable ink tanks but the firing nozzles are permanently built into the printer. The firing nozzle for the black ink is most likely blocked. Try the nozzle cleaning process via the supplied software, although this will waste a lot of ink and will not guarantee 100% success. If it is under warranty I would recommend returning it to the shop and buying a different make. These printers are not reliable and often require you to replace ink cartridges even though there is ink still in them, due to built-in chips which report the ink levels incorrectly.

Why am I still getting banding even though test prints are ok.


Sounds like you've picked up some dried ink on the print head or ink holder. I would suggest removing all the ink cartridges and the ink holder (see directions from Canon) and clean the bottom with rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip or cotton cloth. DON'T use paper towel, it leaves lint. Check the rollers also to make sure they don;t have ink residue on them. Be cautious when working inside your printer.

I have a Lexmark X4650 I refilled the cartridge and now I cannot get the printer to recognize the cartridge it prints black only and tells me Color is low . any suggestions on how to bypass this prob get...


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).
