I refilled my black cartridge with Cartridge World. When I install it, it asks whether you have changed the cartridge Yes/No?, Whether I answer Yes or No, it displays a message "No cartridge". I think the printer is unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.

Re: Printer does not accept refilled cartridge
This doesn’t help fix all printers because each situation is
different and in most cases we don’t have enough information to determine the
fix.So hope this will provide some
Could have a corrupt driver. Disconnect
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do
both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer
to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we do not refill the Lexmark 36 and 37. The reason is that your printer turns off the electronics on the cartridge when the ink gets low, so you can't reuse the cartridge. Your printer will only function with an electronically functioning cartridge. We NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills a lot of the time, and across manufacturer their ink costs the most and is designed to clog the cartridge if you don't use it fast enough. We recommend HP printers that take integrated print head cartridges and Canon printers that take tank style cartridges.
Don't let your ink levels drop below 25% before refilling and resetting your cartridges. There is an inner and an outer chip on these cartridges. The inner chip disables the outer chip when it's contacts are no longer bathed in ink. So, it doesn't matter if you "reset" the outer chip after refilling your empty cartridge because the chip was disabled. I'm really curious how you refilled these cartridges yourself without souring yourself on refilling from the experience. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I refilled a set of these cartridges when we had replacement chips available (we don't now because our chip distributor was violating Epson patents) and it was an absolute mess, took forever, and the cartridges still didn't work in our test printer.
You need to have both black and color cartridges installed with functioning electronics to use your printer. Sounds like your original color cartridge and the refilled color cartridge you purchased both have bad electronics. I recommend Cartridge World or Office Depot for cartridge refills because they electrically screen their cartridges before selling them. You need to buy either a new or refilled color cartridge for your printer to work.
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).
You can't refill these cartridges yourself. Sure you can get ink and inject it in, but your printer remembers the serial number of each cartridge and how many pages you've printed with it. Because it remembers this information it turns off the cartridge electronics to prevent the use of refills. I would try to get refills for the black but not the color cartridge. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we have a high return rate on the color cartridges. It seems the printers are extremely finicky about color refills. If you get a black refill and your printer won't print with it, exchange it for another one because you happened to get a cartridge with the same serial number as the last one you had. I recommend Cartridge World refills, then Office Depot brand refills.
You usually have to install a DIFFERENT cartridge at first to fool the printer into thinking you changed the cartridge then swap to the refilled one... Their feeble attempt at making sure you don't refill and use the same one.
You need to have a black and a color cartridge installed to use your printer. That doesn't mean the color cartridge has to be full. You can have an empty color cartridge in the printer and it will work as long as the electronics are good on it so the printer can recognize it's there. You cannot refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers what cartridges have been in it so that it can reject refills (it sees the same serial number twice and catches you trying to not give Canon their money). You can use refills, but you need to get them from a refiller with a high turnover of cartridges so you don't get the same serial number twice. I recommend Cartridge World stores as they have high quality refills with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
in the printer driver there is a option that whenever you install a new cartridge it has to be reset otherwise it shows the message the above you quoted. one more option is there that is change the chip of yellow cartridge and black, after doing this please whip circuits of the cartridge and printer carriage block before installing the cartridge
