Hi Glesam,
The X3650 uses the No. 37 tri-color cartridge, i.e. 3 colors in 1 cartridge. Unfortunately, when one color runs out, the cartridge has to be replaced. When you change printer, you might want to consider a printer that uses at least 4 separate ink cartridges (black, cyan, magenta, yellow). This way you need to replace only the cartridge that runs out.

    Try to clean the contacts (that meet with cartridge) in the printer with some alcohol. Switch off the printer first!

After refilling my cartridge it shows ink level low for one cartridge and gives two error messages for every printing but prints. But for another cartridge it does not print and give message to buy a new...


Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.

I ran out of both black and color ink. I replaced the black ink b/c I do not print in color. But I cannot complete the alignment steps without the color ink.


Lexmark printers usually require both cartridges to have ink left in them to continue printing. But try to press the Cancel button for the Alignment process (this is not recommended). Then try to print a document again to verify that you are able to continue printing without an empty color ink.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your color cartridge with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

HOW DO I REPLACE THE INK .I BOUGHT THE INK BUT FOR GOT HOW TO PUT IT IN


In order to replace the ink..please follow the following steps

#1
Spread out a piece of newspaper where you plan to work. Remove the supplies from the refill kit. The Lexmark 44 will have one bottle of black ink, one thumb drill and one syringe. The Lexmark 43 will have one bottle each cyan, magenta and yellow, three syringes and one thumb drill.
#2
Remove the label from the ink cartridge. The black refill hole is at the top of the ink cartridge. Use a toothpick to check the color of each fill hole on the color ink cartridge. Generally, the magenta is at the top of the cartridge, the yellow is at the left center and the cyan is at the right center.
#3
Use the thumb drill to open up the fill hole to fit the syringe needle. Place the tip of the thumb drill on the fill hole and twist until the hole opens up larger. Do this for each color hole on the color ink cartridge.
#4
Fill each syringe with 7 ml of color ink (one for each color) and 15 ml of black ink. Insert the syringe needle into the bottle of ink and pull the plunger upwards.
#5
Place the tip of the syringe needle into the fill hole. Slowly press down on the plunger. If the ink seeps out while filling, stop filling the cartridge and wipe up the ink with a paper towel. Some cartridges may not need the full amount of ink. Repeat this step for each of the colored ink fill holes.
#6
Replace the ink cartridge in the carriage of the printer. Run one to three test pages to cycle the ink and check the printing. Use any document with color on it for the Lexmark 43 and any document with black text for the Lexmark 44.

Thanks

Color ink cartridge


Well due to some problem in cartridge you would be facing this problem.however you can do try this.

Please clean your cartridge once again with some spirit.

Fix it well in the printer afterward.

Than use normal paper and print in color.

If than also it does not work that means the bar-code of the cartridge has problem in it so the printer is unable to read that code, so for that you need to change the whole cartridge.

Or if your printer had valid in warranty period and it still in that period just give it to a service center.

If you still had any confusion regarding the same problem or nay other please do reply.

Naiven.

Color cartridge missing


You may want to remove the power brick at the back of your printer, wait a few seconds and reinsert back. Then try the steps listed in the user guide to install new carts, page 42.

Lexmark X5150 printer (serial #10450991811): Error message reads "color cartridge missing." It is not. With the last cartridge, printing was light and scattered; could not print anything...


Went to online chat with Lexmark. FREE.

They offered to replace cartridges as they felt the ink was dried out in one, and the ink jets in the other were damaged.

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

Ink Cartridge


Lexmark/Dell info
Before you buy a remanufactured Lexmark or Dell inkjet cartridge please carefully read and understand the following:
The more recent ranges of remanufactured colour Lexmark and Dell ink cartridges have been remarkably unreliable - the failure rate being massively higher than all other remanufactured goods we supply. Our remanufactured HP's, Canon, and older Lexmark/Dell ranges remain very reliable.
At seems almost certain the micro-electronics in these cartridges have been developed in the factory to ensure failure at a given point. THE MODELS MOST LIKELY TO CAUSE PROBLEMS ARE THE LEXMARK No1, No2, No3, No29, No33, No35 and No43, AND THE DELL MODELS TO FIT PRINTERS 922/924/942/944/962/964 and Dell printers sold in the last 12 months. For some reason the problems seem to be with colour cartridges - black units remain reliable.
On the reverse of a brand new Lexmark 29 colour cartridge box (in print so small it's almost impossible to read) it says: "THE PATENTED PRINT CARTRIDGE CONTAINED INSIDE IS LICENSED FOR A SINGLE USE ONLY AND IS DESIGNED TO STOP WORKING AFTER DELIVERING A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF INK. A VARIABLE AMOUNT OF INK WILL REMAIN IN THE CARTRIDGE WHEN REPLACEMENT IS REQUIRED." In plain English this means the cartridge will certainly fail - even when there is ink inside.
Although this is not printed on the boxes of certain other models, the high failure rate suggests similar technology is deployed. A perfectly good remanufactured cartridge can be installed, and used - albeit temporarily. Suddenly and without explanation, an error message "UNSUPPORTED CARTRIDGE" appears, and the cartridge refuses to work ever again. Most will almost certainly end up in landfill.
