Question about Lexmark X8350 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have re-inked cartridges for many years with great success, but it seems as if Lexmark has built in a microchip either in the printer or the cartridge refusing re-inking. Is this suspicion true and if so how can I bypass the problem? The message I get is simply: Replace cartridge/ invalid cartridge or something like that. It does not even try to print until I put in a new cartridge.
I have the same issue with an aftermarket cartridge. I would like to know whether there is a way to bypass the error message.
(Just because it is aftermarket does not mean it is inferior. Guru's answer above sounds like one that was written by a printer manufacturer. The manufacturers have tried to make consumers believe their warranties would be void for using aftermarket ink. That is not true.)
This is a trick that is used on some of the HP printers. Try this, you will need at least 3 maybe 4 cartridges. The printer stores the chip ID in memory for the last 2 or 3 cartridges installed, so, take an old cartridge number 1 and install in the printer, reset power. Next step, take old cartridge 1 out and install old cartridge 2 in, let it come to ready or tell you to replace empty, then install your refilled cartridge. You just have to remove from its memory the chip ID of the refilled cartridge. You can fool it by doing this each time you refill. Can't guarantee this will work with lexmark, but it does work with HP.
Hope this helps,
