Printer cartridge is a refill and does not seem to be recognized

Refilled cartridge will print from scanner but not from computer. Computer says to replace black ink cartridge but I just put back the same cartridge that has been there all along but has been refilled.
Is there anyway to use this thing?

Maybe you can try to reset the black ink level 1st. To reset the ink level:
1) Goto the Lexmark Solution Center application.
2) Press button Maintenance>Install a new print cartridge, follow the instruction on screen. U may then have your new full ink level. Note: u only can reset to full level, cannot customize the level by your own.
Hope this help.

The printer does not recognize the cartridge rifilled and does not print out can you help me?


Probably the cartridge, actually a printer head, was damaged during the refill. You need to buy a new cartridge and find some other refiller more careful with your cartridge

Printer will not accept new cartridges. Printer is new and wants original cartridges to initialize ink system. Original cartridges are not availible. Tryed reset but did not work.


HP printers will not accept refilled cartridges. Are you trying to replace your empty cartridges with refilled cartridges? There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge that tells the printer when it is out of ink. If you try and refill it yourself, the printer will not recognize that it has been refilled without replacing the computer chip in it.

I think your printer is telling you that it needs HP brand cartridges that are original and not refilled cartridges. There is no way to "reset" an hp printer to get it to use an off brand or refilled cartridge that has not had the chip changed.

You can pick up a good refilled cartridge at a professional company who knows about changing the chip for less then a third of the regular price of an HP cartridge in a department store. However, HP does not want you to use refilled cartridges and should something go wrong with your computer and they find out that you were using them they will void your warranty on your printer.

If you are not trying to replace HP brand cartridges with refilled or off brand versions, I suggest your return them to where you bought them and exchange them. They may be defective cartridges.

Hope this helps?

My F4280 HP all in one wont recognize the refilled cartridge.


hello, attempt to clean the sensors on the bottom of the cartridge with some kind of solvent and q-tip. If the ink cartridge has sat awhile before you refilling it then the jets will be clogged dry and you will need to purchase a new one for your printer.

After replacing ink cartridge printer dose not reconize one of six


Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
  • Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
    • Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
    • Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
    • company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
  • printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
  • printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.

have a nice day.

Refilled the black cartridge and now it doesnt recongize it


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Printer will not recognize a refilled cartridge


this is a bit hard because.....what model is your printer? Is your printer hooked up to a computer or stand alone? Usually you can press and hold the cancel button for around 10sec or until is clears and this will let the printer use a refilled cartridge but you will not be able to moniter the ink levels.. the printer will remember that the cartridge you are trying to use is empty already but you can continue printing until the printing becomes faded and then you know you need to refill.

Lexmark and Dell use a sensor in the cartridge to sense a low ink level. Once the sensor has been activated, you cannot reset it. The printer should work fine except for the fact that you'll have to override the "low ink" message on your computer.

Manufacurers don't make money on printer hardware. All the money is made from ink replacement, so they make it as difficult as possible to use anything other than the stuff you buy from them. Some (HP) put in chips for an "expiration" of the ink/toner. Go beyond the expiration date, the thing won't work.
